Would relegation actually be bad in the long run ?

Recommended Posts

I know this sounds bad and depressing but would relegation be a bad thing in the long run ? (if we're deducted 10+ points)

 

would finally give us the clean slate we've needed for 2 plus years and more importantly the chairman. He need's to learn how to run a club and complete rebuild would be the lesson he needs.

 

out of contract players gone. all the high earners like Bannan would have to leave as they wouldn't take the step down. A new recruitment structure of dipping in to the lower league market.

 

How many teams have we seen in the last 10 years come from league 1 and then go on to the prem or be on the brink. Blades, Bournemouth and then theres Brentford and Bristol who are on their way.

 

i'd much rather take the points deduction now and go down rather then next season and sit in the bottom 6.

Or we could be a Sunderland, Portsmouth or Bolton and struggle. It's a very tough league to be in.

Yes. 

 

It would be very bad.

 

For so many reasons but the main one being we are up the creek financially and losing further revenue by being stuck in League 1 won't help.

Do you remember how long it took us to get out of that division before? Even if we get a points deduction carried over to next season, we will still be able to go again in the championship a lot quicker than if we have to rebuild in league one

Don't really subscribe to the go backwards to go forwards plan. 

 

Many a team in the championship have done well on small budget if it comes to that, don't see why we would want to go to league. 

 

Just need a good manager more now than ever.

It would be a disaster.

 

We need to get to the summer, Championship status in tact, and rebuild this team with players of the right mentality to progress.

 

Whether we can do either of those, well that's a different story.

Think we need to stay in the championship as long as possible as it helps with attracting better players and ownership and sponsorship etc. 
 

Even if it’s a 9 point deduction for next season would be better than being in league 1.

Championship is worth 10 million per season in income revenue

For every 1 club that benefits from relegation as a chance to rebuild they are 10 that don't.
Much more likely to make things worse rather than better.

League One can be very difficult to get out of. Look at our own recent history, Sheffield United, Sunderland, Bolton, Portsmouth and so on. All clubs with fairly recently PL history. We have to avoid L1.

I'd much rather contemplate gunning for a play off spot, beating the Efl kangaroo court, winning the play offs and a permanent berth in the PL thanks. We're not that far off.

How many of the 30 teams promoted from L1 in the last 10 years haven't gone on to the Prem or been on the brink?

 

Blades had one of the best managers around, Bournemouth and Wolves were bankrolled by billionaires, Huddersfield and Brighton are the only others I can think of who started the last decade in L1 and made it to the Prem, and you mention Brentford and Bristol who have hardly set the league alight, managing 1 play off place in 13 seasons in this division in the last decade between them.

Yes. Relegation would be an absolute disaster. 

 

You're welcome.

May be 30 years ago it may have been a plan but things have changed. We are going to struggle to see the Prem in the next 5 years anyway, to try and get 2 promotions, in an old stadium that we no longer own, with little income, would be too big an ask. Look at Sunderland, and even Chessy. Going down guarantees zero.

Not sure how old you are, or if you remember us getting relegated from the premiership. But getting relegated with high earners doesn't always mean they leave. It kind of lead to this shower of shybo we've had for last twenty years.

We don't take kindly to that sort of optimism!
