I think some have lost sight of the purpose of football clubs.Then wtf are his wages based on if not performance and results?
His wages will go to $0 if he's doing a garbage job.
Imagine if they spent what Brighton did in the offseason....
They bought Willock in the offseason, that was it.
It wasn't that they improved, they went at 2 points per game after the purchases which would get you a CL spot across an entire season. It wasn't exactly a small sample size either.
I know you like to intimate Brighton are the best run club in the universe, but you might show a little humility at stages.
Brighton had one of the highest net spends in Europe for a few years and it resulted in the grand total of 15th-17th.
It would be a herculean effort if they managed to bounce back next season. They'll lose all of Pope, Tarkowski, Cornet, possibly McNeil (despite having a pretty poor season) and Brownhill, and their dire financial situation will make it difficult to buy adequate replacements. They seem to be in a somewhat similar situation to Huddersfield when they got relegated where they paid much of their parachute payments on debt they needed paying off. Luckily for them, they kept afloat despite threatening relegation and are now one win away from promotion. Burnley don't seem to be the most loved club around here, but I hope they can manage to stabilise things like Huddersfield and not go on a spiral down the pyramid.
