He said that he was disappointed the appeal failed, but was really angry it failed for the reasons the FA(?) gave, and if ever there was an example of why an independent body needs to look at football governance, then this was it( or words to that effect).

He also urged the people of Dover to get behind the club next season as a show of support, to indicate that they believe the club has been unfairly treated, in having the fine and points deduction.
Jim also said the budget for next year was effectively halved.

Makes sense. Why waste money on the wage bill when you're almost certainly going to be relegated anyway.

Save the money for the following season and a push for promotion.

One of Jim's gripes appeared to be that he didn't feel the football authorities should be looking at him and automatically expecting him to put a certain amount in, when the football club is a separate legal entity , being a limited company.

Can Dover afford the 40k fine ?  I thought they were claiming they didnít have the money to pay it and they would have to close up shop.
