I doubt Aldershot will change our Tuesday game to Wednesday or re-arrange for another time.

Ours has been moved too and I believe the clubs are looking to move the Tuesday game to another date.

Does anyone here know what Eastleigh's budget is? I want to know if it's less than ours before our inevitable defeat to them where Davis goes "They've got more money than us so we had no chance.".
Don't tell anyone as its a secret. But i'll have a stab at 250k but I might be wrong
I'm sure their are others on here that know more about our dealings

Yeah the club have just confirmed the Bradford game is 2pm Sunday and Lincoln will be moved to a date that has still to be agreed.

Not a cat's chance in hell it's £250k! That must be more in the region of Altrincham's.

So that's Constable's wages covered. What about the rest of the squad?

surely Eastleigh are around the £1M budget mark. More than likely, as they are the Conference's current Crawley/Fleetwood, it's just a blank budget, whatever they rack up will be the budget with no real set figure. I'd be very surprised if they are not a top 5 budget in this division. No idea about Crewe's actual budget but Eastleigh certainly have more financial clout currently.

:brill:1 Million, I expect Stewart has read this and asked Toddy. That he must have stashed some of his money.

Constable on 250k, jesus our budget must be more like 3M then.

Ours is £1.2 million, I just wanted to be reassured that Eastleigh's was lower than ours before our happy clapping twats start saying we have to be grateful we play these rich sides and we need to sit back and enjoy the ride.

Obviously I want Crewe to win every game but the state the club is in means if Eastleigh thrashed us I wouldn't be upset, it would hopefully make a few happy clappers wake up and realise we're not making progress after all and that the fraud we have in charge needs his P45. I've never seen a club with such delusional, embarrassing fans like us. 3 seasons of this shit and they still accept it because it's the "Crewe way". That's why we'll be regulars in this thread come May 2017!

It's probably similar to £1.2 million, probably a bit less. It's not gonna be small when you have players like Constable, Midson, Drury and Harding on the books.

Barnsley refused our Sunday tv slot!

How did they manage to get away with that? Even the almighty FC United of Manchester werent allowed to refuse...

On FC United, I notice that they have already played a home league game on a Friday night, so its ok to not play on a Saturday when its convenient for them, but not when the TV want to show them? I agree with the others, BT should take the game away from them and give it to other teams who are more deserving of the exposure and money!

Sorry, I'm not in the loop here...what's happened with Northwich?

Also, is this the real Northwich (i.e. the fans' breakaway one) or the one playing out of town run by that madman? I totally lost track of the Vics situation a while back.

I genuinely thought we had a good chance of being on the telly given our FA Cup history and the gap between the sides, but hey ho. Frankly some of our fans are a bit self-pitying when it comes to the media's obsession over FCUM and more recently Salford...I think we should just concentrate on ourselves and get on with it.

As mentioned above, Northwich played an ineligible player and are still in the competition.

They are the messed up one. The fans one is 1874 Northwich, who play at step 5 I believe.

You had a chance if you weren't in the conference premier. The next on the list would be the Wealdstone match for me (in terms of what the media would pick. An extra level gap than you, and the media around the Wealdstone Raider etc). Frankly conference premier clubs stand next to no chance of being on in the first round proper. Too close to the league clubs that there are normally better ties, non-league themselves so would need a step 5 side to get a top conference one to get the chance of that, and normally no step 5 sides make it.

Sadly the media wankfest around those two clubs is based on one real tangible fact: it get United fans interested, and by extension City, Liverpool and Leeds fans to a lesser degree. It makes complete commercial sense. I still hate it, would rather clubs that need the money get it, like Didcot (at least they did get their payday).

Got a source for that, or is it just something going round your forum? No reason for them to do so. Even for a club like Barnsley the nearly 70k in TV money is far from nothing. I think it's rubbish from fans who thing you should have had the slot. No way they choose that tie over Didcot.

On the Alty website and they've turned down the slot on the sunday football focus show rather than turning down an actual televised fixture. Barnsley have a game on the Tue and don't want to rearrange.
12.5k Alty claiming they'll miss in compo from the FA.

Yes, perhaps should have made it clearer that it was a football focus game rather than a full game. The money would have been nice, as insurance against the probability of defeat.

The Eastleigh owner has gone on public record many times, stating exactly what our budget is. It is really not that difficult to find it. Just go look on our forum for starters, its on there in a couple of threads. Nowhere near £1m i'm afraid, & i don't think it needs to be to win this league. I would suggest if a teams budget is over 1m, then they have a lot of expensive players who are not doing the business for their respective clubs. As for Constable on 250k that's a big lol, i doubt he'll get much of a game from now on to be honest. Yemi is on fire and we play so much better the way we play with Yemi up front. Putting Constable back in, will just make us a dull team to watch again, with him just trying to win free kicks all game around the oppositions area. 15 goals a season is not worth the money he is on, despite it being a million miles away from 250k. I would suggest that Yemi is on less than 1/4 of Constables salary, it's a no brainer as to how that one will work out if an offer was to come in.

Why don't you just tell us what the budget is rather than sending us on a wild goose chase round your forum?

And if 15 goals a season isn't worth Constables wages, how much are you paying him?

It's pointless me or any EFC fan answering either of those questions. You believe only what you want to believe, as it gives you a good excuse to hide behind each time we play your respective teams, as has been pointed out earlier.
If Tranmere have a 1.2m budget, then they are not doing very well with it, are they?
Having a big budget means very little. You still have to win football matches, same as all other clubs.

Yes, that's why Welling Utd have been challenging at the top of the National League these past few years.

I remember when Constable signed for Eastleigh from Oxford he was offered £40K a year to stay at Oxford or £90K a year to sign for Eastleigh hence he dropped. I genuinely think Eastleigh's budget is less than ours, yeah they'll probably be paying their forwards a fair whack but some of the squad will probably get peanuts. I highly doubt Eastleigh will be paying each player around £2K a week. This is why if Eastleigh beat us (and they will) we shouldn't use money as an excuse (which the Davis In brigade almost certainly will) and we should be directing our anger at the management for failing to be competitive against non-league opposition.

If there was any proof needed as to why no-one takes you seriously on here, then that is it.

It's not the be all and end all (good manager needed), but to suggest it means little.....when your benefactor runs off, I'm going to be most intrigued to see if you can retain your status at this level. I suspect the answer will be no.

It certainly helps sign FL standard players though, which a lot of clubs at this level are unable to do.

If Eastleigh aren't among the top 5 biggest budgets in the league (and more than likely top 3) I'd be shocked, frankly.

In some ways, being seen as a moneybags team actually increases the pressure. Our manager has mentioned it a few times this season, how it motivates other teams and stops our players from getting the credit they deserve.

There isn't a lot in it budget wise amongst the top clubs this season, I'd say the likes of us, Cheltenham, Tranmere, Grimsby and Eastleigh aren't that far apart so it will come down to which team has the best manager, which for me is Cheltenham.

Managers make a far bigger difference at this level then most players do. There are a lot of players in this league who are at a very similar level ability but who earn vastly different amounts depending on how good their agent is, and how lucky they get with which clubs are interested in them.

So maybe you can explain why there is a division full of ex football league clubs at this level, who all came down and had top 3 budgets, but very few of them have ever gone back up. Only Bristol Rovers, have gone straight back up. The likes of Tranmere & Cheltenham remain to be seen if they do or not this season, but Luton, Wrexham, Oxford, Grimsby, Mansfield, Kidderminster, Macclesfield, Torquay, Aldershot to name a few, are all either still down here, or spent a few years trying to get back up with big budgets. And if they haven't made it back up, will have had their budgets cut year on year.
That's why it means very little. Of course a big budget should help, but it certainly doesn't always, and the clubs i have just mentioned are all testament to that.
People keep on about Eastleigh will go pop if the owner walks. BUT WE WERE ONLY 1 LEVEL BELOW FOR 10 YEARS BEFORE HE CAME ALONG. And the Conf South, would be fine if that's where we end up again one day in the future. It makes me laugh everytime when people like you get all red faced and hope Eastleigh will go back to where they came from - yeh 1 level below - Whilst your own club has probably dropped at least 2 divisions...no wonder you are red faced and jealous of The Vision..Our natural level is here, your natural level is all rather embarrassing to your history and you are a part of that.

I'm not sure we've ever had a top 3 budget. Maybe our first season down here? But I doubt it. We also had crippling debts to deal with.

I'm also not sure how loyal fans are to 'blame' for clubs getting relegated, any more than Crawley, Fleetwood, FGR or Eastleigh etc fans of long standing have to answer for the financial backing their clubs suddenly have.
