One of The Key Failings This Season
#1
We lost to Huddersfield, Southampton, Cardiff and Burnley.  We were never going to survive with those results as we had to make that up by beating better team which we never looked like doing. We were in a Catch 22 situation early on in the season.

That's the 'issue' with this league. The top 4, in large, are consistent and will beat the bottom half teams 9/10 times. There's so little room for error to stay up and you have to beat the teams around you. The unrest with Slav, then Ranieri all added to the pressure and lack of organisation. That's alongside poor recruitment, lack of depth and a defence that wouldn't put a downer on a National League side thinking they could each bag a hat trick.

If we're to come back up we need to forward plan a water tight back four and build from there, that's how the more stable Premier League teams do it. In all honesty I'm not to fussed about being in the Prem but I do enjoy the thrill of being promoted....shame we can't say we'll win the league but stay in it again the year after....unless by some miracle we spend billions and become the next Man City...

Unfortunately with the FIFA financial rules unless the Club can earn billions we cannot spend billions.  The top team generate huge income above the TV money which we cannot get anywhere near. The Leicester miracle only happens when a team with a solid defence has a brilliant striker who wins nearly every game virtually on his own.  That nearest that happened to us was the last half a season Saha played for us and his goals has in contention for the first time in our history.

The Prem is to a certain extent, a 'procession'; the top 6 teams know that they will never be relegated; they will forever increase their fan base and income streams. What needs to happen is one of the top 6 needs to be relegated so 1 of the bottom 3 gets another opportunity in the Prem. So finish below the top 5, one of the top 6 gets relegated.

Spoinsorship from the owners brand surely allows some flexibility? 

There's no way Man City are earning close to what they're spending. No matter where you go in the world you'll see an abundance of support for the likes of Liverpool, Man Utd and even Arsenal....Man City are still miles behind.

Stadium sponsorship is an obvious one although apparently it has to be no more than the 'market' rate but i'm sure scumbag & shyster financial consultants could find others.

Man City can spend lost of money because they make lost of money which make them a very profitable business.

Don't mix up Revenue with Profit -

Manchester City announced profits for the fourth consecutive year in their annual financial report, which was publically released on Thursday. City posted total revenues of £500.5m and a profit of £10.5m.
The club become only the second English club in history to surpass £500m in annual revenues, and only the fifth club to reach this figure, along with Manchester United – who release their results next Tuesday – Real Madrid, Barcelona and Bayern Munich.

These 'revenues' are mostly from corporations associating themselves with the clubs, they'll be the main sponsors and then those that pay to have their names on those boards you see behind the cameras. Citeh have all those enterprises controlled by the ruling elite in Abu Dhabi.
