    Your title shows him up for what he is, a journalist. Why give these people any credit? They're just trying to get a paycheck.
    Add to the fact I've never heard of Football Fancast shows that this is what it is, clickbait.

    The article seems to cut itself short at the end, I expected another 5 or 6 paragraphs.

    Leeds, Aston Villa, Journalists, Media have all said the same things but nothing happens, if any of this **** sticks, why has nothing been done?

    I can't stand the media, it's all bull****. It just serves as a way to wind us up in one way or another.

    And not a word about how the likes of the so called Big 6 have *******ised the game. How Man City and Chelsea got to outrank Man Utd or Liverpool or how things have gone in Europe with PSG basically killing France.

    I guess he's just trying to be controversial and get folks talking about his article. Best left ignored.

    So no one else bothers with the clickbait..

    "It’s just that the words of Leeds United’s owner Andrea Radrizzani back in March stick in the craw because surely we can all agree that the betterment of football resides in agents having less power and less influence, not more. Aggrieved at his rivals’ superior season the Italian relayed to BBC Sport: “I want to understand the rules so I can act like them. If it’s possible I would do the same as it’s been proven to be successful for the team”.

    Okay lets put this into perspective. When a journalist like this writes it is about what he would like to happen not what is going to happen.
    Waste of space and time.

    I'd say he's more of a blogger than a journalist. I read that as an opinion piece.

    Now i know everyone is entitled to their opinion, but his is a load of **** and should be treated as such!

    Clubs following the Charlton model would be relegation fodder these days, the game has moved on.

    Also, the blogger hasn’t articulated how Man City broke into the big boys club and how that is different to what we are trying to do.

    The bloke is NOT a journalist. He's a jumped up blogger who thinks he knows a bit about football. I'd be amazed if he reports on games, press conferences or has any real contacts in the game.

    He's a City fan. Should write a blog post about them instead. Might even be better informed than this embarrassing piece of s**t.

    When Doncaster Rovers did something similar with our old agent friend Willie Mckay no one battered an eye lid as they dropped into the 3rd tier of English football.

    The foundations of Tudor's article are built on sand, namely that our approach has drawn "widespread condemnation" and "scorn". No, it hasn't. The media by and large (the BBC and TalkSPORT in particular) have been very supportive of Wolves under Fosun. Our only consistent detractors were jealous rivals Villa and Leeds last season. His views on Wolves come across as fringe. He's also an idiot for comparing what Charlton did nearly two decades ago to modern Football. In modern Football to compete, you have to spend big and / or smart.

    Coming back to this.

    I don't see how Charlton are a good model, they're languishing in League 1, although they have a chance of promotion this season.
    All that said, their average attendance must be fairly poor at this given time. So I fail to see how that is a "well run club".

    Huddersfield, who are also mentioned, got lucky with Wagner. If they're relegated coupled with him walking/getting the sack, they'll be in virtually the same situation as Charlton.

    A well run club like Charlton would still be where they were, the PL. They're not.

    Huddersfield have spent a fair bit as well, it's a myth that we have outspent everyone to get where we are

    Mendes though isn't it?

    Should be added to the swear block along with ****, ****, **** and ******* :D

    Seems to defend his corner on Twitter, and I think he has only looked at the Mendes factor. Maybe a naive piece on his part?

    Journalism is just a business pushing its own views on people very rarely there’s truth involved, unless I see it with my own eyes or hear it with my own ears I label it bull****

    He got the desired result that his editor was after - thousands of idiot supporters taking it seriously and driving traffic to the site for all that lovely ad revenue. Well done for making a bloody thread on it.

    One of my bug bears, National football Journalists, I cannot stand that awful Sky Sports programme on a Sunday, where they gather around a table, & tell everyone they know everything, when they actually are just making up, utter crap.

    It's "Churnalism" not journalism. He's just cut'n'paste some phrases he Googled. The thing is, there is room for genuinely insightful journalism into how English football and football in general is going. But that article is the diametric opposite. Almost every other sentence is either wrong or arguable at best.

    The big question is just how does any club get to join the Big 6 without major investment? We are doing what any club with ambition has to do these days. You can't blame Wolves for the situation that has been created by 25 years of the Sky/Premier League cartel giving all the money to the oligarchy at the top.

    He can waffle on about Huddersfield all he likes, which really shows his lack of insight as they're not looking so good now! They never have looked good since about October of their first season.
