Both of them have massively invested in their infrastructure, Brentford are getting a new ground and Ashton gate has massively changed. They’ve accepted what they are and trusted their scouts to get the next decent player in, which they probably will do. Decent model to me, if say they’ve strengthened as clubs massively over the last five years.
Problem we have is lack of patience. yes I know we’ve had nearly 20 years of it now but is the championship that bad? Not really, yes it would be great to go up, but I’d rather build the blocks and secure the club than spend like maniacs to fail. Hopefully we’ve learned now and can start to build under Bruce, rather than spend millions on signings that won’t make much of a difference.
