Fuck knows. I mean, I''ve never been particularly keen on the "get rich owners and buy a load of expensive footballers" strategy for becoming good but I'm also not too keen on an extended spell of lower mid table with the odd relegation battle thrown in (and I'm not even going to contemplate yo-yo club/another extended stay in the Championship). So, yeah, if that means an owner with deeper pockets then we're going to have to go there. I would however prefer it to be:
1. Less questionably sourced funds
2. Not as the little brother to another venture (fuck PSGs reserves and fuck not being allowed to compete in Europe because of conflicts of interest)
3. After Bielsa has chosen to move on/retire - I can't see a change of ownership being a positive for him right now, he doesn't seem like the sort of manager in a hurry to spend big on players (although equally he'll have some minimum standards Radz may struggle to reach).
All in, I pretty much want us to achieve a level where we're not forced to watch our best young players move onto the dizzying heights of Norwich, Villa or fucking Bournemouth but equally I don't want to get to a point where there are no academy graduates in our starting XI. The current lot may not all have Leeds in their blood but they seem an honest bunch who are genuinely delighted to be here.
