I hope they enjoy their memories of paying the likes of Jay Jay Okocha and Ivan Campo 50 grand a week and know that it led them to ruin.
Bitter about Coyle? No, very much over that. I have had the pleasure of their fans company many times and not a good experience once. Football needs a club to go bust to look at itself in the mirror when you see City buying 16 year olds for £8m - I can think of none better than this lot.
Spot on jm,Portsmouth did exactly the same under happy Arry,100k a week for Sol Campbell,to name just one,and then when it went tits up,they expected sympathy,no flippin chance you reap what you sow,this shows why it's precarious to rely on one individual bankrolling any club,or writing off debts,sooner or later the s**t hits the fan,i wouldn't mind but even when they went down to League 1 in 2016-17,they still had a crazy wage bill,no wonder they bounced straight back,clearly these costs weren't sustainable hence why they are in such a mess now,the warning lights have been flashing for several years,and despite this they splashed the cash,hell mend them,the true fans will stick with them even if they have to restart at the bottom of the league pyramid,the glory hunters will no doubt return to their PL darlings,Man Utd,Liverpool et al.
And really what did they achieve,they had a decent run in the Europa League for a couple of seasons,but beyond that they haven't got much of a legacy for the hundreds of millions thrown at all those big name signings.
If they survive this crisis,they'll kick off in the same division as Accrington Stanley (who are they),Fleetwood(at least they'll get to visit Highbury) and Rochdale,they are ultimately no better off league wise than the late 1980's.
