Agree. I think with an increase in player trading between clubs, clubs are going to accept that they can only have one or two tilts at a premiership, maybe every 10 years. More player trading is going to even out the top half/two thirds of the competition, meaning the days of really dominant teams for three or more years, back-to-backs, three-peats etc. are probably gone.
With that in mind, I’d be recruiting for a tilt at a premiership in the next few years and accepting that that means stocking up on our deficiencies (mids) at the expense of future-proofing the key position posts in defence and attack. Win one in the next few years and accept that it might mean a necessary slide down the ladder.
