The two automatically promoted clubs, Charlton & Sheffield Wednesday, were unquestionably the strongest in the division and far stronger than any of the three teams coming down from the Championship. Doncaster are a mess, Portsmouth are in administration, and Coventry are clueless. With Huddersfield also promoted and no big names left in the division, any decent team is sitting pretty for promotion next season. So tell me, what is the sensible way forward?
Is the sensible course of action to tear up a squad that narrowly missed out on promotion, releasing 11 players before you have sourced any replacements? As things stand, Sheffield United have just one forward on the books! What a joke!
We are shedding no tears over the plight of Shafting United but it does seem incredible that such a well supported team, fuelled with the millions of ill gotten gains from the Tevez affair, can find itself in such a mess. McCabe is, of course, a McCnut but how big a McCnut can you be exactly?
