Where we'd be, what we expected/we'd have liked

Where we'd be, what we expected/we'd have liked
Unanimous and not surprising that the voting saw at the top of the leader board. Be owned by a mega rich Portsmouth resident 60%.

The last I can find was a man who was titled PORTSMOUTH'S richest man became so when he sold family land to make way for the 500m redevelopment at Tipner. Of course this may have changed; and of course he may not like football, but if he did WOW.

Where we are now 20%. I think a very large number of people would have settled for the outcome we achieved considering the CVA and all the other restrictions we were forced to play under.

Gone Bust 16%. Oh so realistic a chance this time last year. Should we thank AA for us still being alive?

Be owned by faceless person(s) 2%. At least BC has a face, we don't see it much but probably better than the era of Al-Faraj and Al-Fahim.

In relegation fight 1%. This was a very realistic possibility. Start of the season eight games and no win. To know we were staying up with eight games to go. Could we wish for little more. Personally I'm not unhappy we did not get promoted I think we would have just got a drubbing next season if we had.

Got a different manager 1%. Well by the small vote, I know yes he could have done one or two things differently but generally thank to SC.

I didn't give this vote too much thought as there didn't seem to be a " self sustaining growing business" option that we all say we want.

... and following on, it made me wonder, if you had a choice how would you like to see the money spent; hence the vote to your right
