As the OP, I did not guarantee promotion (who could) but you don't just lose players you sell them and can re-invest. The only players that are out of contract are the poorer ones like Ward and Schlupp. All the best players are on longer-term contracts unless they have release clauses: hence the income

Leicester 'lost' Maddison, Barnes, Tielemans and Castagne and their icon, Vardy, was cleatly in the twilight of a Premier league career (he scored 3 league goals last season).

Their highest-profile signing for this season was probablyHarry Winks who cost them 10 million,

Don't bother looking at the foot of the Championship table to see how they must be struggling. They are 11 points clear at the top

On the other hand look at Sunderland, we have been there before in the 80's. Saying relegation is not a bad idea is madness. All good players will have big wages and release clause in their contracts if a team gets relegated and anyway in the lower leagues you can't afford the wages of EPL. As for leicester they have been much better funded by their owners over the years than we ever have.

You are right - that Roy may have had more quality and depth at his disposal.

But the common denominator you are missing and completely overlooking is that he still didnít make best use of those resources and under achieved - hence he got sacked..!!

Which is exactly the same position/scenario we are in now..!!

We all want us to stay up - but think youíll find your support and confidence in Hodgson being a positive factor in us achieving that scenario is very much in the minority - see my straw poll thread for confirmation/validation..!!

How could you know that?

Can you be certain that another available manager would do better with our depleted squad?
If Steve Parish was sure, we would have a new guy already.

Strong rumour is that Parish wants Cooper but doesn't want to pay severance to Nottingham Forest.

Not a bad idea, an awful one.

We are not financially viable outside the PL. Unless we go straight up - we're stuffed. Could take a decade or two to return.
