all teams outside the top 4 receive a pittance compared to the top teams.........the gap will just get wider season on season......is there any point in staying up.......and if so how can you possibly challenge the top 4 when you receive over half a million pound less .
We do not need to challenge the top four and I do no expect to. But my own expectations, our supporters, and that of the club was to be in the top eight . 8th pos. was not unreasonable to finish in the bottom two and relegation will be abject failure both by the board and our present coaching staff. On remaining in the championship we can and should compete against the lower teams ie. the bottom 6. And pre season with the team assembled we should have done just that. injuries added to the failure to recruit and Kears dismal game plans have left those expectations in tatters.
