I was firmly in the 90% group that Magnum PI mentions above. I had heard from good sources about Sol's previous interviews etc......Even if I hadn't, like most of you, the gut feeling was this will end in tears. After Bond and sitting adrift at the foot of L1, is was never the time for a'risk' appointment.How you have spun that to defend Ron is hilarious.
I had also heard about his antics well before Christmas and there are posts on here to prove it. So thats not spinning anything to defend Ron. However to act immediately would mean certain players and staff splashed in the tabloids and they certainly wouldn't want that.
What ever your opinion of Ron no transfers January 2020 was the right decision. The real crime was not using the money saved in January wisely that Summer or even the following January 2021.
In December 2019 relegation from L1 was a cert. Last December relegation from L2 was not a dead cert. We had a good chance but our performances on and off the pitch in the first 3 months of this year, including resigning Ranger etc.....Thats what sealed our fate.
Still as FBM says thats in the past, right now Ron has said he will stretch the budget. You might not believe him but PB is certainly the right man to help to keep Ron on his toes and help 'stretch' that budget.
Good attendances and support will also allow Tom to find money for some January signings. Yes i know it can be any time but thats when players move and that is when the Club will be in a position to act with reasonable certainty....If their is such a thing in football.
