Hope this doesn’t sound too negative, but getting rid of 3/4 big wage earners and bringing in 7/8 others just means a bigger squad, not a stronger one. Due to his reluctance to sell players, the squad has been enormous all through the Chansiri years. We hardly saw some of those players.
I’d like to see youth get its chance but unless there’s a Mason Mount lurking in the development squad, I can’t see it happening. If next season starts with a points deduction it won’t be possible to bring along unproven youngsters in the first team.
Staying up might be all we can aspire to in 20/21.
