Donít know about for good mate
I donít really think you can make the jump without revenue, wages and stuff like that coming with you, or without finding an incredible edge other havenít (e.g Tottenham producing the best English striker of his generation, and convincing him to stay there forever on a 1/3 of what he could get elsewhere, or Liverpool adopting a lean and efficient transfer strategy backed by a top coach that yields players like Mane, Firmino, Salah for like what £100m?), and I donít particularly see any of that changing for us out of the blue.
Every year that goes by the top 6 become more and more entrenched. The money and focus increasingly shifting towards European competition and moves these clubs further and further ahead of us.
We donít have the backing, the support, or the commercial operations to push us into another bracket. We maybe did have that short window where we could spend £2-300m without upsetting FFP, but we did that and we invested...unwisely, while simulataneously losing Barkley, Lukaku, Stones.
Maybe marcel holds the key, maybe Bramley Moore will be a force multiplier, maybe weíll unearth a diamond.
But we are in no uncertain terms back to praying for rain.
