I think we’ve all accepted it now that we’re not staying up and our impending demotion into the 3rd tier of English football draws closer. 
 

Just ask yourself, even if we did somehow manage to stay up or if Pulis had worked his magic saved us...what next? Would we just be prolonging the inevitable?

 

The club has been on a steady downward spiral since 2017 and these last 20 months have been particularly dreadful. The Boxing Day stoppage time collapse at Stoke, the 5-0 home embarrassment vs Blackburn, transfer embargo (again), points deduction, record breaking goal droughts and losses at Home, awful dinosaur long ball football, 3-0 humiliation at Rotherham and our latest low the collapse at Luton after leading 2-0, which really was the nail in the coffin. 
 

It has been truly horrendous. But that can all change. Relegation gives us the opportunity to finally start getting the ‘big’ decisions right.

 

Whatever happens next has to be a complete rebuild of the culture, strategy and philosophy at the club. As keen as we all are to see what decisions Chansiri makes with his future, it’s ESSENTIAL that we start rebuilding the club in the right way.

Agree that relegation may help with the clear out and reset the club - but financially relegation to League 1 will cripple us.

Relegation is never a positive, but it’s happening. Chansiri needs to own it. His decision-making has led us to this despite all his millions. It’s wake up and smell the coffee time.

Absolutely right.The drop in TV revenue is going to be very signifciant,and the continuing absence of supporters due to Covid is going to be painfully felt by the club.Basically you cannot rule out another season of struggle due to the situation the club finds itself.

Relegation is never good. 
 

There is not a single thing we could do in L1 that we could not do in the Championship. 
 

 

How about winning a match??

Having been established in the champ for 9yrs, we are in no way geared for league one. The only clubs ready to push for immediate return are yo-yo clubs like Rotherham. We need major surgery.

Disagree.

 

Relegation may give DC the reality check and harsh footballing lesson he needs to understand when owning a club. If he sells the club or not, you would at least think us going down would make him rethink and learn from all the mistakes he’s made so far? 
An owner who starts getting the big decisions right but most importantly stops getting them wrong is integral to any club that wants to progress in the football league. 

 

Also, I genuinely cannot remember the last time I watched us play and thought we were the better team. Unless we can play Wycombe at home every week we aren’t beating anyone. Desperately putting together a squad of unwanted free agents, declining players in their 30’s and overpaid anti footballers is not something good clubs do.

All of these changes should have been done this summer with us in the Chanpionship. 
 

Doing it in League One will be horrendous. 
 

Thing is, I have zero confidence we can come back up. Relegation to L2 seems more likely than a promotion.

While ever Paxo stuffs the turkey,we are doomed and chairman chansiri will continue to overspend on wages,cant see Bannan taking a 20 grand per week haircut in wages because he loves us,hed get more at Barnsley!

 

Even the likes of paterson will be on too much money for the league below.

just find it odd that a bloke professes to be a businessman, yet makes so many elementary mistakes year on year.

The most sickening thing about performances this season is that it will 100% cost people their jobs at the club. Yet the players seemingly don’t give a throw.

Good luck with that.

A terrible midfield and inability to score goals will follow us down to League 1.

Tv revenue is a red herring...very single penny of the extra 6 mill or wotever it is we would harvest would go straight into the players we would have to sign to compete in the championship...league one budget should be 6 mill less than the championship

Who will do the rebuilding? The same incompetents at the top?
