Couldn't agree with you more on your concern about the budget and on our recruitment needs. Of course, hopefully our players can all adapt to Div 1 standard, in which case our recruitment needs will be fewer. Obviously the cost of the Cliff Hill development will have a knock-on effect on various budgets.Yes. But I'm an eternal pessimist and only one voice in 6,000, others will doubtless see things differently.
We shall see whether we are able to recruit L1 standard players to strengthen the squad and / or replace anyone who leaves. GK, DM (both essential), 2x forwards, maybe 2x full / wing backs?
If that's the case then I'll close the thread. Detailed discussions on who we need is not required on this thread. Budgets cam be discussed in terms of the work going out at the training fields.No, but surely money being spent on the C&F must, at least in some way, impact upon the overall finances for the club and, by extension, the playing budget?
You didn't actually derail the thread and neither did I, but we did follow the derailment. If only the Mod had cut out the sauce - perhaps he was on holiday in Ruritania - therefore I feel a slap on the wrist is an overzealous sanction and would appeal.Good point. Wrist duly slapped.
