My post from another thread is probably best suited here. Iíd like to get an owners perspective at the end of the season and see if their plan has changed and how ?......

I think DS will be ok to get us out of the championship again but itís gonna take a couple of years. Even with the likes of our best half a dozen players sold I donít feel the others are gutsy performers for 2 games a week ..... if DS has some choice of championship players to buy or get on loan without Suso he may be ok.. I donít know why but Richard o Kelly pisses me off more than Deano.
Other than Luiz I canít seem AelG , Trez stopping on top of the better players going, and the squad for championship doesnít seem the same without fighters such as Snoddy, Albert, Chessie, Hutton, Tammy

Can see us down but think itís gonna take longer to get back up this time
I really wonder what our owners are thinking ?

DS cannot remains under any circumstances whatsoever. Amazed anyone is thinking otherwise

Smith has lost it. He has Archer (18 years old starring for the U23s) sitting at home who has not even been chosen to train with the first team. He would offer far more than what we currently have. It beggars belief. I don't care if people think I am banging on about it. I know I am right. If he had been given a chance earlier on I am convinced we would not be where we are now. Just look at the videos of him in action on the H&V FB Page to see what he is capable of.

well it doesn't matter if you're right about him. its an alternative to something that we can plainly see isn't working so what have you lost? But if you don't even bother trying.............

We are still in it but after tonight I canít see us winning another game this season. No fight from management or players. Disgraceful!!

Assuming there are no injuries or anything he cannot possibly be worse than the two duds we currently use.

Do the full parachute payments kick in again if we go down?

Yep.

You'll get very good odds on us staying up if you're confident.

That's now 2 points from 51 against the top 9 teams. Feck me!

How many times has there been young players chomping at the bit who would be bound to save us if only given a chance, but then have turned out to be pretty shit? 

Cameon Archer may well turn out to be a superstar, but the reason we are being relegated is not just because we didn't place all our chips on an untested 18 year old to save us.

After beating Watford at home I thought three more wins would do it. We have played a lot of football,  against some pretty mediocre outfits since then, and haven't managed one win.

After Watford, we needed to then win 3 more games for safety. THREE. The form is disgraceful and heads will roll

We simply are nowhere near good enough to have any hope of staying up, which is some going in a league as bad as this year's.  Shame on them all.

I know the season was suspended but we haven't won a game since January. Nearly six months without a win. It's just desperate.

I accepted relegation ages ago. Just yesterday I said I want to see us win 1 game before the season ends. Realistically I'd like to see us score a goal before the end of the season.
The club did too AFAIC. We've struggled since the start of d member and here we are 7 months later and thos in charge have done nothing. It's fucking negligence the bunch of charlatans.

P.s. I don't want Smith at this club now let alone next season. He has been a disaster and is miles out if his depth.

The owners are behaving very strangely doing nothing. It pisses me right off that clubs like Everton and Southampton were struggling and acted upon it and now they're safe. West Ham look like surviving too.
