  2. No. That's not what credible means.
  3. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_S.C._Braga_seasons Nothing at all unusual about Braga being 4th in the league.
  4. So, two consecutive ties for us against clubs beginning with the letter E - surely a first?

In our case, yes, the long-standing factors mentioned in the OP certainly apply, but since our last relegation from the PL, we have, in addition to being badly run, been hit with a succession of blows beyond our control - getting relegated without parachute payments; the collapse of ITV digital; the introduction of parachute payments; the ever-increasing size of those parachut
