    Makes perfect sense to me, continuing the slow expansion and growing the club rather than chasing the quick money. Solid foundations rather than boom and bust.

      Uneasy at ambition? Good God no.

      But @Biscuit is correct, the quote was in the context of not going after Asia the second we've got promoted which is a mistake that more than one of our rivals has made. If we do become the Man Utd of the south it won't bother me in the slightest. It's highly unlikely though.

      Not me. I'm a considerate lover and always make sure that I spend a bit of time playing with the boobs and nibbling their ear before we get down to business. Ladies appreciate things like that.

      I somehow feel giving this a thumbs up could be misconstrued.

      I can switch from my naturally dominant position in the bedroom to kind and caring, depending on the situation. I'm also a great dancer.

      I think you're misinterpreting what he's saying,

      He's talking about dominating the south of England as opposed to going after the Asia market. Basically walking before you can run. Of course he would love it if we were sellable to overseas markets, but lets focus on being the biggest club in the south first. So it's not about pinching fans (ala Charlton) and more so about cementing our position nationally before venturing further afield.

      Makes a lot of sense to me - seems pragmatic.
      have to say i'd rather look overseas to expand the merchandise buying base, than chasing interest from kids in Kent and Surrey.

      I don't see a problem with it, if only because the alternative to constant growth is to just stagnate and effectively 'settle' for what we have, which seems worse.

      Yes, we can change our name to Brighton Tigers.
