Admit it, it's more than a soft spot. You're on the verge of meeting City's parents.The best way to do business - the FGR DoF who we have been linked with (but looks like we won't get) talks a lot about picking up 'broken toys' from clubs further up the ladder. I look at your recruitment of the likes of Nombe, Brown, Dieng, Stubbs (obviously alongside your Academy which is probably pound-for-pound up there with the best in the country); and think you're doing things right.
It's been a long time since you've had a bad season - commensurate with your relative financial position in League 2 - and whilst I'm sure there'll be some sense that things could have been done better and success achieved quicker it's pretty clear from the outside that you're in a great place at the moment. It's great to observe as someone who has developed a bit of a soft spot.
