There's a video of Nas, Wes and Emery walking along the front of the Holte.  They all look delighted, but at one point Wes shares a glance with Emery and gestures as is to say the noise and cheering is unbelievable.  If you see it you'll know what I mean.  They must be thinking if we react like this to conference qualification what's it going to be like when we win a trophy?  Days like Sunday must be brilliant for them and really send the message they are on the right track.

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.

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

Reminds me of the poster who branded those calling for Gerrard to go as over-reacting like Daily Mail commenters. Showed his usual judgement, and ironic as well, coming from someone who used to post in off-topic like a Daily Mail commenter.

And also had the financial clout to write off 40m...

Is this the pay-off to Gerrard and his coaches (seems pretty high if so) or something else?

Don't mean to sound picky, but Emery's not the first world-class manager in our history. 

You could add  Ramsey, Hogan, Mercer, Saunders and Taylor to the list.

When you go for quality you're more likely to get results - all of this makes the Gerrard appointment seem even more stupid (and expensive) than it did at the time.

The payoff to Rangers to take them all in the first place (4m) and then to pay up the remaining 3 years of the contracts of Slippy (5m-6m per year) and 3 or 4 of his backroom team (another 3-4m per year).

The current Blackpool manager cost more than a mil, just for him to replace Beale.

There were a few comments from some during January wondering if the owners had lost interest. I didnt get it personally. They were never going to bring in a manager as good as this one and not back him long term.

You were right then and you're still right. Owners losing interest don't tend to build a new stand and an entertainment complex to go with it.

It manages to look both big and small at the same time, it's weird.
