Proves if you have the right chairman and Manager it is possible to go up to PL and stay there|
But that is precisely the point.They didn't stay in the Pl. They got relegated straight back down. This was their plan. Not to try to stay up, and so not to over-extend themselves in terms of wages and transfer fees, but to build slowly.
And it worked to the extent that they then got promoted back (and again did not overspend), and now have stayed up for two seasons, although some pundits are already suggesting they may be in trouble this time. It is far too early to stay they are staying in the PL.
But the major point is that they made a conscious decision, as I suspect Cardiff have done, not to try to stay up initially. How many Norwich City fans would have ben happy if we had adopted that plan?
