Aye. I wish them all well.

Last time this happened to us (AFC Wimbledon), what grated for me was we saw a whole host of people moving to play at a *lower* level rather than better themselves. Money aside, I understand why it may have looked appealing, but I think for most of those involved it was a backwards step. The victory in the Trophy shortly after couldn't have been much sweeter thanks to that.

In this case, almost everyone that's moved so far has taken a step up, and while I'd love them to have all stayed, there's not a single one that I begrudge leaving for a crack at Conference South. I honestly hope they all make a success of it, but remember their time here fondly. I probably won't even begrudge people taking a step sideways if they decide that the extra couple of thousand miles while staying at step 3 isn't for them. I do hope that they do give serious thought to staying around if the new gaffa wants them though.

As for turmoil... I actually have a cautious optimism. Good things are happening off the field with the people at SJP, I think the board have made an astute choice of manager /assistant and I'm hopeful that we'll do okay next season despite having to rebuild. Remember that a lot of clubs go through this regularly; we're unusual in having had a lot of continuity over the last decade.
