Plan is for the club to grow and dominate in every department whilst playing good football, develop youngsters and build a English team.
Invested heavily in youth, got rid of most of the first team squad. Recruited young english talent to supplement what we already have.
Plan on building for the future. Youth team won their league with ease.

Having signed a lot of great young talent, they were the best team around and can develop as a team and individually for years to come.
Loader scored a ridiculous amount of goals and even managed to hit double figures for the first team with cup, europa league and a couple of prem games.
We finished 7th in the league, just missing out on europa league.
FA Cup semi-final defeat to Tottenham
Europa League Quarter-Final defeat to Leicester
League Cup 4th round defeat to Hull
Considering all the changes which occurred this season I am happy with our showing. A strong finish in the prem, and semi and quarter final. With many youngsters given regular game time. They can only improve and get better.
Mason Holgate had a great season for me as did Stephens at CB.
James Bree came in half way through the season and made team of the year, so im looking forward to seeing what he can do with a full season.
Bertrand did well, but wants to leave so I will let him as I have Targett who is more than ready and Jake Vokins for cup games.
Ward-Prowse and Cook look like they can run things in the middle for me with Slattery and Costello providing solid backup.
On the wings is where I am most excited. Redmond didn't put up the number I would have hoped but had a decent season, Sim and Green both stepped up and played brilliantly, and Reiss Nelson did well coming on from January onwards.
Grealish provided some important assists and scored some vital goals and Gibbs-White got a handful of games but not as many as I would have liked.
Rodriguez led the line brilliantly and Loader and Campbell provided good back up. Expecting more from Loader and Campbell in 2nd season when given more game time.
Just starting second season all transfer business has been completed and all 3 teams are looking strong.
Brought in Freddie Woodman as competition for Forster.
Made Holgate deal permanent, now highest earner.
Added multiple youngsters for youth team and reserve teams.
Should be a strong season for the entire club, youth team will hopefully carry on and dominate.
With last seasons youngsters stepping up to the reserves they should have more than enough to do well in that league.
My targets for the coming season with the first team are to get a Europa League place (6th), Carling Cup quarter finals with a team of youngsters, FA cup semi/final with a rotated team.
