Lower WestStrandedSnowflake Royal Bounce to 2nd, then 24th, 20th, 20th does very little for us though.
2nd would get us promoted. Different ball game then.
22nd would see us relegated. Rolling the dice too many times is asking for trouble.
Of course it does but, it "feels" to me that they are putting together a sustainable structure at management level - hence why Bowen is taking on the role he is alleged to be doing. If all the clubs in the Championship essentially have a free pass this year for owners to put money in, then tieing that into those changes make sense.
I may be totally off but these feel like changes that were always going to happen at some point but COVID and the likely freeing up of the FFP reigns have made this the right time to push forward with them.
