1. An impelling force; an impulse.
2. The force or energy associated with a moving body.
3. a. Something that incites; a stimulus. b. Increased activity in response to a stimulus:
It always seems to me that impetus is a huge thing in life /business/sport . Its the ‘when you are on a roll ‘ syndrome . When things are going badly ie relegation from Prem , mid table Championship , relegation to Div 1 , it becomes increasingly and disproportionately difficult to turn it around . The same is true in business and when things are going really well , its almost as difficult to stop the impetus and cock it up.
Under SCP , they did the hardest bit last year and turned the oil tanker round and throughout the year the pace of progress quickened .
To maintain the momentum, I really would have liked to have seen 3 or 4 good quality signings over the summer , particularly a regular goalscorer , another centre half and a ball winning midfielder . Obviously the window is not closed and we may yet see some progress on signings .
With a ‘modest’ level of investment ie c £3m , and given SCP’s ability to identify and motivate talent , I think we would have gone straight through to the Premiership .
I hope we haven’t missed that chance that the impetus gave us …. Anyway, onwards and upwards . I fancy us to win at Brum
