Guys come on, have you been supporting Prem football so long that you've forgotten what FOOTBSALL is?
Money will not solve all your problems.
Hands up here who thinks that WBA have spent shed loads of money to get promoted ? We MADE money last year, how many Prem or any other div club managed that?
What we have is a great team spirit and work ethic. I can think of 3 more players we need as first team or cover, but thats it.
If you look at just how much money has been ploughed into certain clubs and for what? Look at Sheff Wed. Fulham have spent buckets and achieved what? When we played them at the Hawthorns in FAC6 on their Prem money and our platry Nationwide money, they won but only due to luck in getting a free kick that never was. Give me team spirit anyday rather than cash.
You can buy the best 11 players in the world and pit them against a team full of players playing for the team, and they'll give them a going over. I have no doubt that we may struggle in the early part of the season, (we always do,!) untill we guage the pace of the league. But I do believe we will survive, you guys haven't seen us play, so I dont expect you to understand. We tonked Man City 4-0 at home and drew 0-0 at Maine Road. If any team next season thinks we will be push overs then they will leave the pitch 90 minutes later pointless!
Prem money just means you can entice the really good players from abroad, dont mean to say they will knit together into the team. You wait till Big Dave shows them what reputation is all about!
