Default Re: 3 Year expectations?

I don't think we can view three years as a journey on which we can build each season unless we have our key players pinned down to three year contracts.

If lads on 1 year deals get us to fifth, say, next year, then they will all be poached.

In my view we need to be putting a squad together each year that is in with a chance of qualifying for the playoffs with a hope that we have a couple of players that emerge as stars during that year and give us a chance of getting promotion.

it will be a big indicator by how many season tickets we sell as to what the fans believe will happen in the season coming up.

I don't want to be negative however we've had bigger gates than most of the teams in this league for nearly 10 years. Let's be honest, it doesn't matter.

It's the rabble on the pitch that matters and the mantle is passed to Keates to assemble his squad.

It's up to Keates, Davies and Darlo to keep the squad fit and motivated.

I think DK has too much to do in order to get us competing at the top of the league next season. It could happen but the majority of his signings are going to have to be hits rather than misses which is a big ask. He had no choice but to release the majority so we need to be patient. If he had a spine of the team in place already then I'd be more optimistic.

He's starting from scratch so don't expect miracles.

Next season has to be play-offs minimum.

Third season, promotion if we haven't already achieved it.

This.

Agree its done little so far for us. Time for the club to step up and match the fans commitment to the club.

Default Re: 3 Year expectations?

I don't think we can win the league............... But I believe we should be in the playoffs every year.

Every year we can build on the squad/ team and each year should be more able to compete for the title. Breeding a winning mentality, that hopefully will result in the playoffs. That winning mentality than will continue when one or two players do ultimately leave.

But we need consistency and cohesion. We need to do away with the constant rebuilds and massive number of squad turnover and build for the future. Hopefully with a 2/3 year plan we can hand out a few 2 year contracts.

As a fan owned club, which is run in a very lean way with the minimum possible spent on costs, and the maximum possible spent on the 1st team, I think our fan base is probably our biggest asset.

If we can challenge towards the top, I'd expect to see average crowds pushing towards 6,000 (we saw this in the early days of Mills tenure). This would hugely increase our potential budget and allow us to compete on a more level playing field with the clubs who are "sugar daddy" owned.

What I'm saying is that the potential is there for our club to compete with almost any club in this league financially despite us not having external funding.

Again, I hear what you say but I'm not seeing where this 6k average is coming from.

We're operating on a phenomenal average gate given the last 3 seasons. We have the ability to get 8-9k for a playoff game and maybe double that for a Wembley trip but to average 6k is bloody tough. If we were in contention we'd average that for the last few home games.

Each season we should be aiming to win the league. After 9 years in this league, the minimum must be play offs. I don't go with 3 year plan. Each year some say it is a 2 year plan. We will never get out of this league without aiming high. We cannot go on with 2/3 year plans. The plan must be for next season not any other.
