Now it's confirmed,the money is on its way, should we ;bank the cash, look to stay afloat and brace ourselves for a uncertain future for football in these Covid times? Or spend as much as possible on strengthing the squad? Or something in between?

GK coach ? What about some of the other staff members laid off this year, could there be jobs for some ?

Key areas for me are:

1) Cover any losses so far and keep a substantial chunk back to cover club during COVID
2) Some money to further strengthen academy
3) Finally sort the pitch out with something that will last the whole season
4) Matt to be given a percentage to spend on the squad over the next 3-4 seasons.

I have said this before: I would like to see the unattractive area between the NOG and the Big Bank cleaned up and used more efficiently. I have previously suggested an equivalent to Fulham's Craven Cottage, complete with a primrose bank. or a very modern, 'arty' installation. Something distinctive, quirky and unusual. All modern grounds look the same.

As we don't yet know the exact figure we are receiving lets say, for arguments sake its 5m.

1m (or more if necessary) to see us through Covid
1 to 1.5m to have a Desso hybrid grass pitch at SJP
1m to the academy
1 to 1.5m to add to the playing budget over the next 2 or 3 seasons

Any excess after this should see Taggy update his Range Rover
