    How do you define a football club's "ambition"? Is it by how much it spends on player transfers every season? Is it by whether it gets promoted or wins a cup? Opinions welcome

    It's not really any of the above tbh. Ambition is just the desire to move the club on to the next level, and then taking steps to attempt to make that happen. You can be hugely ambitious and fail spectacularly, or not ambitious at all and tick over ok.

    i.e. QPR are hugely ambitious and have visions of being competitive at the top of the Premier League. On the other side Newcastle/Villa/Sunderland/West Brom and others don't have any real desire to be anything other than midtable.

    All I know is,apart from a brief period when I was Leeds United, I've always been Mansfield Town in the ambition department.

    Life is good on the sofa though.
