We are proud of our team’s battling and spirited display in the 4-2 win over Watford in our final home game of the season. We were immensely proud and humbled as well by the passionate support our manager Alex Neil, his staff and the players received from the fans, throughout the game and after the final whistle.
However, as a Club, our number one objective this season was always to retain our Premier League status. We have fallen short of that target and work is already underway to learn from the mistakes that contributed to our failure this season.
The immediate priority, as stated earlier in the week, is to recruit a new permanent Chief Executive to lead the Club.
The Board and the whole Club is fully focused on supporting and resourcing team-building plans for the summer transfer window and into next season.
The Championship is a very tough league as we all know, but our firm objective will be to bounce back and achieve promotion to the Premier League at the first attempt, as we did in 2014-15.
