My club maybe pretty successful on the pitch currently, but off the pitch we're still in League One in various ways. The ticketing is chaotic enough already for example, almost impossible unless you're an ST holder. The stadium is obviously sub-par. It would be hilarious and ridiculous if we got promoted, frankly.
But if we did manage it, then the money would utterly transform the club, it's just so vastly different to the income we have now.
Strange response from a newcastle fan...oh no wait a sec.Not sure why anyone would want 'Boro up here. Shit club, shit fans, shit stadium located in a shithole.
A lot of clubs think the money will transform them but in truth it rarely does, unless there's a change in attitude.
Blackpool should be a stable championship club instead of a club heading for league 1. You could argue Karl Oyston pocketed all of the PL money, but that wouldn't explain clubs like Wigan, Reading etc.
Southampton are the only promoted club I can think of who changed the way they did things. Their academy and scouting departments are probably the best in the country. They are always creating and selling hot young talent. When they aren't doing this they're identifying players for the first team. When they sacked Nigel Adkins, some years ago, we all thought they were mad. They bring in an unknown Pochettino. He does so well as to justify the sacking of Adkins. The club knew they would lose Pochettino to a fancied side, so lined up Koeman for when he left. No doubt they have eyes on someone else should Koeman suddenly depart.
Bournemouth play very good football. There is no reason (if you tighten up at the back) for you not to stay in the premiership once you get there. But the powers that be have to have a vision for the club that goes beyond getting into the premiership.
p.s. My own club Liverpool didn't have a vision for itself until FSG took over and appointed Brendan Rogers. This is no mean feat for any club.
