No one with any brains is going to invest while Cleeve is in charge.

Nail hit firmly on head!

Hypothetical i accept and i haven't researched the actual numbers but i wonder if the goals scored by Marriott, Morias and Gyasi after they left us: when added to the short sighted wholly illogical decision not to offer Joe Taylor a chance to further his development before as was inevitable he moved on, might have been the difference between survival and relegation?

Currently the subject of a phone in on LBC, with Andrew Castle hosting.

Obviously manager at the time didn't rate him.

Oversight and poor judgement are both gross understatements!

From day one he needed to cultivate local businesses and to win their trust....This is a prime example of what could and should have been?

Had a listen to Stephen latest podcast.  The guest was a guy from Stockport who was 40 years standing there.  He made some interesting points to SC about how Stockport engage with its supporters and gives them total value for money with the match day experience.   It seems it not all about the 90 mins on the field that offers the value.

Common sense, self awareness, Trust and trust.......for stsrters.

... the taking of a constructive, collaborative approach an absolute imperative.

In the same way that TW talks about commitment and effort being a 'given', I would have said the above was the bare minimum for a new owner coming into a club.  Unfortunately so often that isn't the case, indeed Buster was no better on this front, maybe if the recommendations of the Crouch report do get passed into legislation and the PL funds are distributed, at least in part, based on Fair Game's Sustainability Index then these sort of behaviours would be rewarded.

Also a lot to do with common sense and self awareness....or lack of!

SC started to 'get it wrong' almost from day one. He needed to win over the local community and particularly those who had in the past financially supported the club via sponsorship...The off field and critically important funding 'bread and butter'..

I am not sitting in judgement but certain of his alleged past business activity prior to him buying our club made the taking of a constructive, collaborative approach an absolute imperative. But instead his approach at times was dictatorial, giving certain potential sponsors the impression that he was doing them a favour.

What might have been?

For various reasons i have been unable to attend matches for some considerable time, so cannot make an objective judgement but i am Intrigued as what, if any, tangible.benefits have materialised from the move to full time?

Have the benefits outweighed the likely incremental cost?

Do people think that setch's team that got promoted from the ucl would beat Cleeves current team

Whatever the result i bet they would play with more passion and commitment than most of this lot.
