Firstly I’d like to say that I’m not driving whilst I write this. Grumpytoffee some of the points you make I kind of get, but I think there’s too much emphasis on gate revenue. As time goes on gate revenue is becoming a smaller piece of the revenue stream.

From a business point of view you could argue that SA would be less attractive if a more progressive manager became available and of course viable.

Getting 7th is no guarantee of European football and certainly doesn’t meet the expectations of Farhad Moshiri as he has said in his interviews.

It’s my opinion that the only reason why SA will be there next season is that we would have failed to recruit his preferred targets this coming summer. As to whether it’s a business reason for him continuing, I highly doubt it.

I think you are right regards gate revenue, but at this present time it does play a part and will for the next few seasons at least.

If a more attractive proposal managerial wise did happen to land at his doorstep do you not feel it would come at a higher price than if he had a half decent team already in place? Business wise if he gets the club stable again we can attract top managers.

Moshri is not a stupid man and he knows that the more attractive we are the better the manager we can get. I am under no illusions that SA will go but I honestly feel that business wise it will be at the end of next season at the very least. I may be wrong.

I am (still) an advocate of Sam because mainly the Team needed a form of order, I would much rather have had Dyche for the same reason but with a touch more adventure in his tactics.
