What is needed to compete there without continual struggle, Wolves Watford Leicester Bournemouth all seem to be doing ok. And I don't see them as being any bigger a club than us. Have our present owners the means to do it. Can we will we get back again.

A few chickens to count before we nee to worry but first thing is to accept we will be competing for mid table/top half, top 6 out of reach for us.

Do we have the cash, well that will depend on Juan and his mates but maybe new owners will be needed.

Personally a good season in the championship would do me right now.

Bit extreme - 50 miles away will do it! Very Happy

As for the OP - no our current owners do not have the money - but we have seen already the size and passion of the club's support is a huge draw for investors - it is what got Ellis Short involved and it is what will eventually bring others on board, providing we win promotion to the Championship and compete well next season.

Yes I would of course love success in the Premier League but not at the expense of everything we are as a club and as a community, which is what we suffered over the last 5 years or so. I do not want us to be seen ever again as a money making cash cow.

It is a tricky one but for me the ideal solution is to keep Mr Donald and Mr Methven as the 'face' of the club and in control, as they get the club, the fans and the area, and who are prepared to keep us living within our means, but also get rich backers on board who are happy to be hands off. Unfortunately people that rich can rarely resist interfering - and that is where the trouble starts!

I think you may well be underestimating the wealth of Juan and his mates H

Out of left field but maybe Ellis may be tempted to put in a few dollars under current knowledgeable owners.
