well in recent times the club have managed there assets very badly but its not this group of players fault whats gone before and there making a good go at getting back up so far imo
Yes I understand the argument that when the two teams get on the pitch it's a hard fought battle 11 v 11. We have a bigger income and a higher football profile than all the other clubs in this league so we should be able to sign better players and if we manage them properly we should, over 46 games, be able to win the majority of those battles against teams with inferior players. I guess the issue is about how big that "majority" is and whether it is good enough to win the league or at least get us in the play off's. If we don't get in the play off's is it because we didn't spend enough of our income, because we did spend enough but we didn't spend it wisely or because we did spend enough and spent it wisely but we didn't manage the players well enough ? In my view these are the key issues for Rovers and have been for many years. Talk about abuse of FFP rules or clubs with sugar daddies or bad luck with injuries or players not trying or bad choice of manager or the crowd getting on the players back or any of the other excuses are just red herrings. At the end of the day it all boils down to how we as a club manage our assets.
