Fuck it up in the worst possible way?
Probably, Smaller supported clubs seem to do ok though. Suppose the biggest factor comes down to the ownership and how the club is run?
Varies I guess, on the one hand you get clubs like Norwich and Burnley who yo-yo then hope to make it stick then there's Newcastle who go up and stay up/do quite well but then fuck it up all over again. Boro have it about right for me, keep the best of what you have, add the best quality you can in key areas (keeper and striker). There's enough money about now even mid table sides can afford to bring in some really good players, it's just about surviving long enough to convince them to come and getting the right ones. There's no way we're well enough setup off the pitch to emulate Southampton.
What we can't do, if we go up, is spend everything on past it big names/expensive loans.
