You might have read it different but the way I read it was:

- wouldn’t work for Peterborough as they’re more old school and him and ‘Baz’ (Barry Fry) do a lot of the recruiting

- fair play to clubs looking at new ways to do things. Manager buy in will be important

- Sharon is a great owner and will therefore know what she’s doing

- offering shares rather than paying for it is a no brainer

I don’t think there’s anything to be worried about. Just a progressive club looking to do things a bit differently to gain an advantage. It’s cost Sharon a bit of her equity and we need Evatt on board with it, which he 100% will be if they’ve made the decision.

That’s how I read it.  
 

Assume poster meant agreeing with Darragh was the concerning bit. Or that’s my take on his worry ha

I think Sharon won’t give two shits as long as she makes money 

Yeah, she'd sell to them. She knows it could be good for the club.
She's not taking us beyond mid-table Championship at best.

I hope she makes a fucking fortune when she eventually sells the club. Nothing whatsoever to suggest her limit is mid-table Championship. Her recruitment has been spot on from day one.

Perhaps not in competence, but financially

Sustainable championship is the FV ambition / target 

But once we get to that point then no reason we can't push on further 

You don't need parachute money to go up, though it helps

Competence is a MASSIVE factor. What financial evidence is there to suggest Football Ventures can fund a mid-table Championship club? Or even a League 1 promotion chaser?

I agree, and that's probably our natural level.

All time PL table has us 19th 

For those who like their football pre 1992 we're 13th in the all time table 

And that's with us yo-yo-ing from top to bottom  

Currently on the way back up 

Absolutely no reason to think we won't be back in the top flight within 10 years
