Although our current priority is to not be sucked into the relegation quagmire, it has to be recognised that it`s no use standing still.
As they perpetually say - time stands still for no one!
Therefore, it`s pleasing to see that Roy Hodgson already has next season in his thoughts. Obviously, if the relegation trap door doesn`t swing invitingly open for us, then plans have to be laid to ensure we continue to progress next season.
To this end, Roy has spoken, to the media, about such matters and the prospect of a meeting to be held to move the club onwards and upwards with Roy commenting,
"To take us to the next step will not be purely down to coaching but also our recruitment to help strengthen the fragile squad we already have."
"I believe we`ll have a meeting, after which time I`ll be able to tell more."
To us, this meeting will signify exactly where the club is heading.
We`re no doubt thankful that significant funds have been made available, for the previous two managers, funds that some would say one used wisely and the other frittered away on a misconception that Championship players could flourish in top flight football.
Whether, in these economically challenging times, the board are prepared to release funds to enable Roy to buy a couple of quality players to bolster the starting eleven as well as purchase some squad men to enhance a squad that was depleted in the transfer window, remains to be seen.
It could be a case of speculate to accumulate.
Success, inevitably, brings its own financial rewards and one would hope that, for all his efforts since joining us, Roy is at least given the funds to enhance the end product, namely the team, rather than simply be asked to maintain the current status quo!
Here at Vital Fulham we`d be interested to hear your thoughts on the subject.
