Incredible naivety. In terms of the board or Ole, I initially thought Ed had screwed us but I think it might be bit of both. I still find it incredible to think that our stated objective this season (in Ole's own words) was top 4 and maybe a trophy. The trophy in the form of a league cup or FA cup is doable but only the most optimistic of outlooks looks at that squad depth and thinks it gets top 4. It really looks like terrible planning.Woodward is mostly to blame but I feel this was naivety/ weakness by Ole. We needed a strong manager to force transfers in the summer, but instead Ole was probably too nice about things.
