Do you think we spend up to the salary cap? If not, by how much are we not? If so do you therefore feel those others clubs are spending over the salary cap?
Do you feel Saints is therefore being run solely as a profitable business? If so do you feel the owners should be investing more money given their asset value has increased dramatically, paid for by the supporters I might add. These are my thoughts.

We have missed Top 4 for 2 years running, we missed Top 6 last year and without change we would have missed it this year.

Would you only change management with relegation? If so I assume you are not supportive of the changes happening right now.

I might also add that with sensible decisions at board level, we would currently have Ackermann as our coach and we WOULD BE top 4 this year. So I wouldn’t the blaming supporters .....

These are just questions and not an attack, I’m intrigued.

if you resign all your ageing, high earning under achievers come renewal time...the cap becomes irrelevant, because you have no cash left for quality? - hence the mire Jim has left you in.

Also the fact you have found best part of 700k for biggar suggests you have the bunce...just 50k less that Wasps were paying Beale and look at the heat they took from all quarters questioning their financial approach.

Coaching, recruitment and ethos..Jim has a lot to answer for whether he delivered a trophy or not....Saints are a massive leading club and shouldn't have been allowed to get to this stage.
