He hasn’t won anything and we all know the award is based on what you won not what you achieved.
I for one had my doubts he was the right man for the job similar because he previously said he preferred the role of coach.
What he’s done is remarkable. I eat my words from a few month back. He actually got them players playing football, that’s all down to him no one else hats off.
Yesterday even though we lost (poor defending costing us the game) the way we knocked it about at times we actually looked the better side and certainly not one fighting relegation.
He needs money, money to pay wages and attract players. The squad is threadbare and we’ve only a handful on contracts for another year.
Next season won’t be based on Richardson and how he copes, he’s proved that this year. It will be based on his budget.
I just hope our new owners have a good few million tucked away for a wage bill or Richardson’s job will be 10 times harder next season than the one just gone.
What gripes me is, nearly every season since coming out the Prem we yearly rebuild the full squad either through relegation or promotion or administration. We need a settled couple of seasons 3-4 windows to “build” a settled side and go for promotion.
Next season I think the best we could aim for is a play-off spot based on Richardson been financially backed this summer.
