No blame at the feet of management/playing staff?
I could go on for hours about why Bates is an old cretin but I shan't bore you. Basically he's been f**king us over for years, selling our best players, pocketing the cash and spending investment on a stadium we don't own whilst the squad lives off unwanted loans and journeymen free agents.
This with the club that generates the most revenue in the division (by far), has one of the highest operating profits in the country yet spent the 3rd least in the last year.
Warnock's tactics are from the middle ages but after 7 years of utter shite through half a dozen managers it's become blatantly obvious where the problems lie. In 7 years the club hasn't even got back to where it was. Whilst Bates remains at the helm it's clear that we will never progress.
