The challenges facing football club owners

How can you still be aiming for play-offs, with the hope of promotion, when you have admitted that you can't afford to fund the level you are currently at?  :dontknow:

Seems like the voice of reason to me.   I wonder how many owners of Clubs at Non League level are reading that and thinking this is me, either today or in the coming Months?.

What if the Hokey Cokey really is what itís all about ?

Difficult, as I can see both sides of this, he is coming to the end of his tenure at the club (new owners next year) and given the position of his other businesses doesn't want to keep throwing money, that he could put to better use, into a 'hobby'.  Likewise the fanbase seem grateful that he has got them back into Gloucester but cite poor financial decision making (full time in NLN) and not sticking to budgets means a proportion of the financial mess is self inflicted.

Unfortunately for many fans up and down the country a 'good' owner is one that is willing to throw money at a problem, better still if that money turns into success on the field.  Hopefully the new independent regulator, which is currently proposed to oversee down to NL level but could be extended to NLN/NLS will enable a different set of priorities to be rewarded

Yes it does, and has done for a long time!

To a degree, yes.

There always seems to be another taxi waiting on the rank.   The next Entrepreneur who thinks they have all the answers.  Has it not always been so?

Well, a founding member of the FOTL's did say that there will always be another white knight to takeover!

Fair play to him.. Some just keep swimming against the tide, whilst getting further into debt.
