Aims for next season? Should be what?

Aims for next season? Should be what?

Which way will you vote in the latest Vital Pompey poll, suggested by moley2, as we try to gage what we are looking to aim for next season? As difficult as it is to try and do this at the moment of course...

  • What the poll is asking

    Where should Pompey aim to finish next season given our current situation?

  • Which way to vote?

    Is an instant return, with 'Automatic Promotion' seriously achievable?

    Could a place in the top 6, yet outside the top 2, to make the 'Playoffs' be on?

    Does 'Mid-Table' stability sound good?

    Then again 'Comfortably above the relegation zone' sounds ok, right?

    Simply given the fact that we 'could' go into next season with a similar, yet worse case scenario though, déjà vu feeling as the last one could mean 'Just to stay up!' is a bonus?

    Then again 'So long as we have a team I'm not bothered' could be the thinking?

    Speaking for myself, as much as an instant return to the premier league would help us financially - assuming we 'went about things right' - as I am sick to death of the premier league and think we need that break to try and get some stability back, I would take a combination of just having a club and surviving the season in the no power league to be honest with you!

    Make sure you vote on this latest poll to your right, but share you views below too...

    Surely our aim, whatever season, is to finish as high as possible. If we aim for anything less than that, things could go horribly wrong. I don't really know why the poll asks 'where should Pompey aim to finish?' A question on various achievement aims might be more appropriate.

    Ii agree PFC Blue; it is the responsibility of every club and member of that club to win every game; words to that effect are actually enshrined in the rules somewhere. It's a damn good rule I say! I'd luv us to go straight back up. In the meantime, a new and honest chief exec, an agreed CVA and out of administration, an owner who falls in love with the club or at least is upfront, honest and actually exists, a succesfull, tactically aware and honest manager; a good team and financial security would be nice.

    I will be happy if we are still going this time next year. Some sensible management of the club would constitute a successful season. I'd love to see the fans get a chance to get behind a team with a long term strategy (whatever the level) after the blow-out of the past couple of years.

    My answer really depends on whether we suffer another points deduction or not. If we do, then avoiding another relegation is the challenge. If not, then we should really be looking to bounce straight back up, but to be honest I don't mind a little break from the prem, and if we stay in the championship 2-3 years I wouldn't be upset, as long as we do go back up eventually. What I really don't want is to start sinking down the leagues one by one into oblivion. And speaking of oblivion, at the end of the day, after what could have happened last season, I'm just grateful to still have a team.

    I honestly believe you should all have a feel good feeling next season in the same way as we did. To still be alive will give you such a feelgood factor that almost anything else won't have the same impact as normal. You will start the season with a team that may not be ready to go. You may not have any money. Until you are bought you honestly can't picture how you will feel. The only thing I can say is that I felt so much relief that even the result in February didn't detract a lot from our feeling of thanks towards the new owner. All you should be doing next season is as well as you can. Remember this, you will, if you can keep your support, have the most vocal fans in the league. Most of you guys and gals are Hampshire and we are usually fair people. I would change the question to "How will we do next season?" But what would I know?

    Good luck for next season - hope your luck changes and you bounce straight back up.

    The aim should be to try and sort out the mess that the previous incumbents made and then get yourselves back innto the premier where you belong.
