Please spare this thread from the Jose in/out bollocks. With that said, and having seen us consistently post improving and expansive growth during a really poor five year period, relative to the giants we're supposed to be, how is it we continue to outdo, well, everyone else? You would have thought inroads would've been made by other clubs in the 5yrs since Fergie retired, but, evidently not. Was our fanbase and separation from other English clubs during the boom period for football in this country so vast that the difference is unassailable? Has our legend passed on to the kids coming up? Is it because of the Asian market? Is it simple consolidation of what we were? So what do you think is causing us to grow completely unabashed and disconnected from our onfield performance, and is growth without success assured for us irrespective of what we do in the game over the next few years?
