So with today’s game being the last one of  the month,where SC said the wages are covered, has SC managed to find any ‘investment’ to support January’s wages ?  Think it would be good if the owner could  make a statement about the how things stand now, going forward.

He made money today. :scarf: :scarf:

So, please correct me if I'm wrong, but this leaves the Club with no staff.

Unless the Chairman has replaced the dismissed staff with volunteers, how does the club now operate on both a day by day basis, and in particular on matchdays?

Apparently the head of health and safety Jamies girlfriend has been appointed to run everything,but I stand to be corrected? :dontknow:

Playing at a level the club can afford does not automatically mean Setch, or just local players.

If the supporters want a higher level of football, it needs to be paid for. That means enough people wanting to watch what is on offer, and lots of successful commercial activities (which supporters also need to be on board for).

If enough money is generated, then a club can play higher. If the supporters don't generate enough via the gate or with commercial activities, then they don't go higher.

The majority of people don't expect others to pay for their household expenses, so why do they expect others to subsidies their Saturday afternoons entertainment?   :dontknow:

Its not about being a big fish in a small pond, or a low level of ambition as some would suggest. Its better described as financial common sense and not expecting other people to pick up the tab for a higher level of football than the club can afford to operate at.

You mean good business management? :dontknow:

:sinking: Yes it’s alright calling for Setch however we have had our eyes opened to football played properly and if S was such a good manager why is he plying his methods leagues below us? How many would turn up to watch punting the ball forward and seeing it return the next.

I didn't call for Setch,was just saying he done at good job with local lads,he provided the springboard for the leap upwards? :dontknow: :scarf: :scarf: :scarf:

Never believe the official gate, it's been bull **** for years. Why can't they be honest for a change!

Not a lot of benefit for anyone in giving false figures for league games.

Forgive me if I am wrong but is there not a clause in the lease where the  council can increase the rent if the   club earnings are over x amount?  :dontknow:

So far I’ E only read the first post on this thread.  It filled me with dread (exaggeration, as only a game!).  I feel that the idea of a local manager with a local squad would be the lowest point we have ever reached.  Now to read the rest!

Local manager with a local squad didn't do too badly under Setch? :dontknow: :scarf:

Any idea how many were there today?  :dontknow:

Trying to say 867? After all the years I have been going I would have put it nearer the 1500 mark?

His biggest mistake was alienating the fans instead of embracing them!

What Malc a bit like Sooty ?  :laughcry:.   Id settle for a team that becomes hard to beat and creates a few chances.

Not sure what kind of budget Adam had to work with at CA but have to assume this is a grade or two up. 

New beginnings and all that  :cheers:

Malc did you ever get to the bottom of the ‘supposedly’ missing money, or will that now remain a mystery for all time ?

Suggest you chat to Barry about the 'missing' money? It was left in his capable hands to deal with after the committee disbanded!
