There might be a payment for ratboy winning the champions league too.

156m for finishing 7th and another 3m from West Ham for Danny Ings, owing to them stopping up.

I feel yesterday will have renewed the owners (if it was ever required) and really give them the energy to help us kick on again.

We are back.
They looked like they were loving it when they were out on the pitch.  This is what they signed up for

I reckon losing in the championship play offs to qualifying for Europe, with a global pandemic snuck in the middle, counts as a pretty good 5 year plan.

We've not really spent silly money to get where we are either BTW. But that is about half down to Unai and his miraculous reign so far.

You compare to other teams in the league and what they spend, we're decent in that respect.

Going I can't wait to see what they do over the summer.

Exactly. We need Inter to start a bidding war before we cut any deals with Man City.

There's no extra payments for Grealish. They met a buyout clause, why would Man City then add clauses to pay even more when they have no need to?

So they can be part of a bidding war.

I remember DW bemoaning a few times early in the season that coming up to 5 years of being here, how further along we really were under the current ownership.

Who'd 'a thunk that employing a genuine world-class manager for the first time in the history of our club would see such rapid progression? Sawiri's angry intervention at Craven Cottage last October shook this club by the lapels something fierce. Our lion roared (albeit in a new, different direction ;)) and this sleeping giant is now fully awake.

I was hoping that would be the silver lining of man city beating Inter... oh well.

That moment will go down in our history. It felt like the first time ever, really, that the person that really matters at the club looked at the situation with the clarity of someone that has had enough of excuses and bullshit, and acted accordingly.

And as I said when Emery was appointed, there were no doubts from then on.

I was a bit concerned after Jan. Felt like we'd written off the season. What little I know.

Yep, this. Fill credit to Sawiris on that, acted decisively and it's paid dividends.

Get the impression that we're not aiming to get in to the Champions League next season. We're aiming to get in to the Champions League every season. It's refreshing.
