Each club has its ups and downs, but ultimately it matters not, as we are under our own ownership which has restructured, meaning we are now in a period of championship football.
Weather you feel it’s on a downward spiral or restructuring is personal opinion.
But I do wonder how many real fans would decide not to renew their season tickets if we suddenly got a Man City overhaul, out of principle?|
That's hardly a valid comparison, Indy. I think you are or were in business, and know that companies have their ups and downs, but within a normal spectrum of doing better or doing worse, as with the clubs you mention.
Going into administration is off that spectrum, because it means - as with Bolton - potentially losing control of the business, and even perhaps the business not surviving. On another thread thebigfeller brushed off the administrations other clubs had suffered as if it was a normal event, and just part of ordinary risk-taking, but it is far from that.
Administration is still one of the worst things that can happen to a football club. The risks attached to it are obvious, the risk to jobs, the risk of no investor wanting to take it on and the club going out of business altogether, the risk of losing the stadium and every asset belonging to the club, having to start from nothing as a non-league clubpoint, to name a few.
So anyone who thinks it is a legitimate or sensible route to get new
investment is living in cloud cuckoo-land - something I am told I know
quite alot about.....
