I wanted to say that I have been a member on here and the old 606 since our previous Premier league stint. I don't post often but read daily. We have been through many ups and downs and although tough at the time when you get relegated or lose a star player, we get through it and I wouldn't change any of it for the world. It keeps us grounded and makes things like the JPT win even sweeter. Over the last 5 years we have had manager changes, sold 1 player who we the fans wanted to keep(maybe a few more will go before the start of the coming season) and had a change of chairman. Something has remained constant through all of this....the Liebherr family. Whether it was Markus or Katherina they have been in the background while the party has been getting bigger and better. Markus had the foresight to hire Cortese, he wasn't perfect by any means but got the ball rolling. Katherina had the foresight to hire Krueger(let's not forget that he is an ice hockey coach, surely someone who doesn't know what they are doing or isn't interested in the club, hires a football guy!), he almost certainly isn't perfect either but he will keep that ball rolling and improve us even more in the next 5 years. You can tell when you see Katherina's smile just what this means to her. She doesn't need the money from this club being a success and could easily settle for a team who stays in the league but just as I would for my late father I would keep his legacy going and think of the joy on his face wherever he is when we get into Europe, win a cup, win the league! Some things are worth more than money. I don't understand the negativity from some posters towards Katherina, Ralph and Les. There are no facts that show anything they are doing is to the detriment of this great club yet there are facts to show they are passionate and interested in the club. I would have liked Pochettino to stay as I think the stability is important but I'm not devestated he has gone, in fact I'm very excited. I an sure we will get a forward thinking manager who the players will respect. Hopefully Lallana and Shaw among others will want to stay and if they don't we will not fail to bring in suitable replacements. Ramirez hasn't exactly succeeded yet(i still believe he can) but we signed him as a newly promoted team with Adkins in charge, now we are a team who finished 8th with 3 England internationals. Regardless of who leaves we will sign other big name players who Mark Lawrenson will insist we have no hope of signing! Now we all need to get behind the team, manager, chairman and owner and improve on last season. I for one fully believe we will.
