With Financial Fair Play soon to be introduced, the emphasis on seeking and developing talent is sure to be far greater than before. Certainly for those clubs that don't have rights to the lucarative parachute payment handed to those who have suffered relegation from the Premier League. Meaning that many clubs are likely to be handicapped when it comes to battling it out for players on quite high wages.
There has been much discussion in recent times about racism within football, and as a football fan I think it’s important that these more political issues aren’t ignored and so recent events have prompted me to put over my view on the problems.
I'm just looking at some of the fixtures we've played so far and its struck me just how important having a settled team is. When I look at some teams we've played- Fulham, Birmingham, Millwall and Brighton they're all teams who have re-built over the last few months.
The rebuilding process we underwent was the few months Mick came in,he kept us up and then stamped his own identity on the side, so we're ahead. You can have as much money as you wish but having that continuity in selection bar slight tweaking and stability at board level is vital if we want to go anywhere.
