I'm struggling to think of a CEO in any industry that has got so much wrong and survived. I very much doubt Purslow will be the first.
Edenís is very much an American business man, that means Fail, and someone pays.

"At the end, this is a performance-based thing," Horst said. "We believe in this team, we believe in our players and in the talents that they have. We're looking forward at making playoff appearances in consecutive years for the first time in over a decade and hopefully winning a first-round series for the first time in over a decade."

Edens added: "We like our team a lot and sometimes you have to change if youíre going to give yourself the best chance. Unfortunately change really can only happen at the top if itís going to be meaningful.

There is is a total over reaction here.

Since Edenís Sawiris and Purslow arrived we have stopped going backwards.

Ok we might get relegated but weíre arenít starting into an abyss. We go down with a much better squad than weíve had for years with scalable assets and a core which could easily get us repromoted with a few judicious signings.

Itís not ideal model but loom here the last yo-yo (Burnley) club is right now and We could better given our additional resources.
I think team we had at the end of last season would demolish what we have now.

Why?

Thereís only Tammy from last year who weíd want now.

The likes of Whelan, Jedinak, Chester and Adomah, as much as they Weíre likeable players, would not be fit for purpose now.

The defence and midfield are much better now if all fit.

I donít think there is a winning mentality, either from the players or coaching staff. Other than for 10 games at the end of last season, which increasingly looks like a wild anomaly, at no point over the last two seasons have we been able to grind out results. I donít think itís a formality that we will hit the ground running in the Championship, and put the division to the sword. I think weíll have a lot of players who think they should be somewhere else, and I donít see a steely desire to win from anyone frankly.

Thanks - exactly.
The question is, who gets the bullet Purslow May get away with it by throwing Smith under the bus, but they both wonít survive.

Great post. I think weíve got a lot of players who will be shocked at the lack of interest from other clubs, Mings and McGinn included

Tammy.... AND Axel. Personally, I think he's been a big miss - Mings is half the player without him by his side. More balanced too - A left footer on the left of defence, right footer on the right.

I wanted Axel back as well but he does seem to pick up his fair share of injuries which is a shame.

Thinking this morning that he's been a bit on the quiet side since survival, he was somewhat verbose after the play-off final.  Thoughts anyone?

We've been quite busy behind the scenes with the backroom I suppose.

Concentrating on the four or five players we need to get in.
