38 players used. That number says it all, too much quantity, not enough quality.
Also for next season, the number 3, the number of months Sannino will be given to get us into a promotion chasing side.

Here are some more stats.....

I'm really not sure what to make of them. Are we making progress?
WFC Stats Over The Last 8 Seasons

06/07 Finished 20th (Prem League) - 16% of starts from Academy graduates, 07/08 6th - 21%,
08/09 13th - 32%,
09/10 16th - 38%,
10/11 14th - 43%,
11/12 11th - 30%,
12/13 3rd - 12%,
13/14 13th - 11%

Currently 3rd lowest position in 7 seasons, highest wage bill in a championship season, least amount of academy graduates and a loss of identity.

But we do have an east stand.

More financial stability???? Maybe - depends how you look at it. Even under Bassini we were really still owned by one of the richest men in the land.

Are we making progress? Are we in transition? Are we going backwards?

We don't really know what's going on. Was Zola's season a good blip and this season the norm, or was this season a bad blip and last season the norm? Like a third date, next season will be critical. We need to make a big push or it will become harder to convince prospective new players of where we're going.
