THE fact is we are a small club like Barnsley and Peterborough.
The threat of relegation was always there as we entered each season in the Championship.
I feel we did well to last the course for four seasons.
The problem these days with being a small club in the Championship is that parachute payments and foreign investment is making the competition skewed in playing terms.
We have heard this week how the Allams have put a reported £51 million into Hull City over the past two years.
And that is a club that is safe in the Championship for another season but they have not torn up any trees.
Look at Leicester City, Cardiff City and many others - we just couldn’t compete with them.
I am very pleased that at the Championship meeting last week the Fair Play policy was accepted and that will make a great difference.
Have you read The Inquest yet in last week’s Free Press?
