Toon in Crisis!!!
Are these dudes in crisis or what?! I mean lets add it up shall we?
-16th in the table, with lower points then the season they got relegated
-paper thin squad with mostly championship standard players being exposed by injuries (they were lucky last year)
-captain and only good CB wants to get sold back to his byhood club for cheap
-most technically gifted player (HBA) wants to move to a bigger club in the summer
-4 points behind their nearest & dearest, who haven't even paying well, but are now improving and likely to stretch the gap
-lost their highest goalscorer for small change to a rival club
-pimp slapped by the weakest team in the league when trying to get a replacement
-clubs around them all strengthening, while they're staying the same at best
-locked into a ridiculous 8 year contract with a manager who had one good season & doesnt seem to have a coherent game plan
-have only made 1 major signing in a year. Wheres the ambition and owner backing?
These guys are in a wooorld of sh*t, in my opinion...
