We are tenth, 2 points off the play-offs. Look at Sunderland, just came down, with an open parachute. Reading, last year's play-off finalists. If we were doing a Reading then I could understand all this angst. A penalty kick away from the Prem to 20th this year, that's going backward. We finished 17th last year and even after the worst run of form any manager has ever had in management that we've had the last few weeks we are still in 10th. There's a long way to go yet. Tom Lawrence got his first goal for Town on November 5th last year, Mick made him wait until he was ready and look what he did last year. We are in a much better place league position and squad wise than we were last year.
You may have heard of the "Paul Is Dead" story (Basically, Paul McCartney died in a motor accident in 1966 and was replaced by an actor, google it, it's interesting reading if nothing else), this is even further through the looking glass, apparently the Beatles never actually existed at all http://www.thebeatlesneverexisted.com/
" We who began researching this in 2011 consider it to be a serious subject, not a joke, and this site is here to expose the actions of those who exploited these young men -- in whatever form they actually appeared to us -- and defrauded us their fans. It is to defend the honor of everyone involved who did not take part in it willingly. It has become apparent to us in this extensive and painstaking research that there were never just four individual people known as "John", "Paul", "George", and "Ringo" who comprised one Rock & Roll band known as "The Beatles", and rose to fame as the world's first supergroup. For all intents and purposes as far as we can tell, no one such group ever existed."
I feel we are in a similar position to Newcastle, the same cold dead hand at the tiller of a multi-millionaire in the late 00s who thought it would be a bit of fun and a chance to make a bit of money and at the same time expose their brands, who got their fingers burnt by the money and decisions they made early on in their tenure. Ashley seems quite happy putting the minimum in and taking the hit of going down, keeping them at their level at best 10th place and their worst 21st place and Evans is doing the same just keeping us where we are between 27th and 37th place. They had one season when they finished 5th, one season we finished in the playoffs, exceeding expectations given the respective budgets, neither was built on and the clubs floundered again into mediocrity.
