Did the gents imply we are still aiming to be premiership ready in 2 or 3 years? Did they talk about end ambition under current regime or was it more realism of a top 3 champ side consistently? Does Rowland believe in the purdy/Wallace model of prem quality if they get released even though you may lose them in the season or even before (Stan South) added to our existing core of younger upcoming players and champ level players.. any snippets for us on the above? Great update Nick thank you

What was said....every Championship club wanted to sign Purdy. He wanted a release clause as all players do. He chose Coventry because of our set up. RW was clearly disapointed we did not have the benefit of him until the end of the season, but contractually could not stand in his way. But Coventry do get a fee, non discloseable as they did with South.

So these deals are a bit of a gamble. Some you will win some you will lose.

Also once we become top four Premeriership teams will be looking at us for potenthial talent. We are no diffrrent to any other Championship side we wont be able to stop them making the step up. RW said a Premiership side can practically put a 0 on the end of our players wages.
