It was a great interview but it needs to be backed up somewhat this season.
Imagine how silly he will look if we got relegated now.
For me, L1 is our level. That's where we should be. The Championship would be a dream and if we were to get there, I think we would be punching above our weight (but I'd absolutely love it!).

There's absolutely no way we'll get relegated next season, I'll call it now. 3 or 4 additions using the process and keep Gibbo and Proctor and comfortable mid table at least is what I see

I'd back you on that philmpv - more likely to be hovering around the opposite end of the table!

It's certainly a great read and I would think the footballing side of the business is the most professional and most forward-thinking that it's ever been.
Even when Rudgie was delivered success, he was always hamstrung by the Bill Bell shenanigans behind the scenes (a miracle JR stayed so long and managed so much) so I do think the ideas and plans Flitcroft mentioned are the most exciting and ambitious I have ever heard in my time as a fan.
Of course plans have to be executed to succeed but I cannot fault the ambition and why not think big? It was a real pleasure to read that and see the thought, the drive and the passion going in, often behind the scenes, at the club.

Spot on Rob. Long may the scumbag pull the wool over Carols eyes!

That was one of the crassest posts in a season that coughed up some gems! I would hope the author of said quote would come on here and publicly eat humble pie...but I'm not holding my breath!

Who said anything about liking them?  To quote DC, “Sometimes we have to take our medicine”.

Great interview. The ambition at the club is so exciting. Getting promotion in this first season since all the changes really is some going & gives us such a boost moving forwards. It means everyone believes. The process has already born fruit. The proof in the pudding has been proven.

I do think we'll be okay next season. The shorter break over the summer & short pre season (due to the playoffs & earlier start of season), does worry me a little and I envisage a bit of a slow start. Once we get going though, I think we'll be a side to be reckoned with & will surprise a few people.

Obviously we need to wait & see who comes in & who leaves over the next month or so, but a top 12 finish would be my aim. Staying up would be great, but to do it comfortably should be the aim. If we can get ourselves into comfortable mid table, I think that would be a good season for us.

Top 10 in League 1 is a very decent consistent standard, as shown last season with the points totals. I don't think there's as many whipping boys like Crewe, Donny, Wimbledon this next season though. I think it'll be a very competitive league.

I do think we'll surprise a few though & finish top half. Most clubs probably think the same after promotion because you're riding the crest of a wave, but the togetherness, unity & forward thinking approach, give me real confidence in a decent season.

Then you've always got examples like Wycombe, Shrewsbury a few years ago, Burton... all examples of clubs who got their own houses in order & got themselves right up at the top of League 1 without changing too much, or spending millions of pounds! We can dream again.

I’m sensing stress, bordering rage Rory.  Which in the aftermath of a promotion season is very worrying.  May I suggest you adopt the Downward Facing Dog pose, Adho Mukha Savanasana.  Hold this for a minimum 10 rounds of breath, whilst focusing your mind on the view from the Hamil end.  This will increase blood flow to the brain whilst decompressing the spine and will energise you.  Failing this 6 cans of Polish lager and a bottle of Night Nurse will take the edge off things in the short term.

So after he has done all that, will he want the sex thing? 

Just checking 😇

Obviously you’ve never drunk 6 cans of Polish lager and a bottle of Night Nurse, otherwise you would know the answer to that one. 🤤

We’ve had about 45 seasons in the Championship. It would be nothing new. 

In 2004 when Martin Allen pulled off the great escape from relegation to the basement, Brentford got about 4000 in the 12000 capacity Griffin Park when we played them. They are now holding their own in the premier league having just had Christian Eriksen turning out for them in a lovely new ground that is still smaller than ours. 

Luton have just been within a hair width of making the premier league. 

Look at Rotherham. 

Return to the championship is ambitious, yes. Unfathomable no. 

Huge amounts of groundwork to come to build a rock steady base to do it sustainably and financially safely. 

I don't disagree, but I think some of those are the exception, rather than the norm. I doubt Notts Forest fans are saying "we've won the Champions League before, it would be nothing new if we did it again". Look at some of the massive teams that couldn't hack the Championship and are now in L1/L2.

We can look at clubs like Rotherham, Wycombe, Burton, Yeovil, Blackpool etc and say "if they can, why can't we?" (which I agree with), but I think talking about the Championship when we've only just been promoted to L1 could leave us with egg on our face.

Let's focus on staying in this league firstly.

Sorry to be the pessimist, but I don't think L1 will be as comfortable as people think.
