    And 9 sides had no odds on them being relegated.

    Even Charlton in 19th place. Wtf?

    A load of Masky's 3 testicles.

    Serious question. Why would you want to ? What did you get out of your two brief visits to the P.L.? Humiliation, and insults from BBC pundits spring to mind, but not much else. <ok>

    This is true and also a fair question. I suppose the natural aspirations of football supporters tend to overtake the sensible options is the answer.

    We got there twice now whereas you've been there just the once and made the most of it.

    Strange thing is although we've failed and come back down twice, we still have the same committed owner, whereas..................

    I'm not sure that becoming financially crippled is making " the most of it ".
    The first four seasons were quite something to behold for little old Swansea City, even attracting the likes of Michael Laudrup, but the bubble had to burst since too much money required to maintain any kind of standard.
    Recovering from the excesses of the P.L. will take some time, and I, for one, hope to never return there.
    The only people who really benefit from the vast sums of money thrown at it are the players, and their agents, all of whom have no real affinity with the Club, and are only there for as long as the huge pay cheques roll in.
    Of the 20 teams in the P.L. only six have a realistic chance of achieving anything, with the others all fighting a relegation battle from day one. They can keep it.

    Agree with all that (except I still want to go back there sometime, but with a realistic chance of staying there :emoticon-0105-wink:)

    Hi fella. Hope you're keeping well.
    In answer to your question, I think it's an inherent part of any true club fan to reach for the stars. There's never much logic about it, just a driving passion and hope that it'll be better next time. To my mind, as soon as you start questioning why you should hope for success, you've lost the passion for your club. The PL is not always a brilliant place to be, and your questions make perfect sense. However, we're football fans which immediately sees a farewell to sense, and in any case, if a club is successful in the Championship, the PL is where they're going. And, as both our clubs know, the getting there is is brilliant feeling. :emoticon-0148-yes:

    The battle to get to the PL is always better than the battle to remain there.

    Next season is going to be a good one.

    Agreed - the journey is often better than the destination.

    It is impossible to add anything to this debate. Lib raises a fair question...and indeed, we had a thread on this for a while. I cn only agree that we will all wish for great success next year and be happy and then, if we reach the promised land, have a torrid time, probably.
    Swansea have suffered badly due to the success in staying up and being forced to break the mould/mode of operation which got them there. It costs toeven try and stay and a sugar daddy is pretty much needed or a good stadium and crowd that allows recruitment without breaking the bank.

    That would be seriously bad news as he has been such a stabilising force and a key link between Warnock and VT.

    If he has the financial clout to own his own club it is difficult to argue but, despite their promotion, Charlton are a train wreck of a club and it looks like the current owner wants shot of the football club but not it's assets. A very dangerous game, e.g. Portsmouth.

    Dalman's wiki page has already got him down as the current owner of Charlton Athletic FC.
