Had a squad full of players on over a grand a week & they nearly got relegated. I was told Christian Jolley was on nearly 2 grand a week :eyes:

When will they learn that anyone can buy a SIDE, but it takes time and good management to build a TEAM. There is a big difference between the two.

Not sure on the fans of the Clubs mentioned, but the majority of us know not to expect promotion just because we have spent money.

I didn't expect us to be promoted this season and I'm not expecting it next season. One thing I will say though, if we don't go up next season then we never will.

Sutton have also spent a fair bit I believe. Craig Eastmond and Nicky Bailey certainly can't have come cheap!

I've read that on a couple of threads now - why is that? Is there some kind of deadline on promotion next summer? To the outside observer it doesn't make sense - you'll still have one of the best budgets down there.

Probably the biggest budget (have heard there was one this season with higher, but don't know who). Definitely top three. Next season will be our fourth down here, don't think they'll be a standout side and I'm not sure they'll be somebody to go on a run like Sutton did. These are obviously just initial thoughts, but we have to do it next season.

The likes of Dartford, Chelmsford and Welling will be challenging in the next couple of years and I've heard Chelmsford will have a decent budget this season. It's just a really shitty league to get out of!

Just really gutted at the moment, I'm sure I'll have a bit of positivity come August.

only if you splash out and get Brodie back.... you have to show some intent to join in

Just you wait, after Big Jason's cash drive and the tsunami of donations we'll receive we'll by chucking massive bids out for questionable players soon enough.

Was the PA system overbearingly loud and drowning out any singing pre-match. I went to the final last year and I found it really irritating.

Yeah, although strangely the singer (whoever the fuck that was) was hard to hear from our end apart from him saying that Grimsby were joining in better. The rest was very loud (especially Joycie ;)) but not properly tuned in from what I could tell. So 1 billion gets you a poor PA system, shit overpriced catering, shit toilets, and a shit bit of scaffolding which is meant to look like an arch. The Towers were much better.

Missed out the car parking there Chrisfgr - £30, WTF :box:
I paid £15 online to Park in Elm Road about a 10 minute walk away, but the directions i had sent me to a road that was cordoned off by police, so ended up having to pay again to park in a business near Wembley, only a fiver so now in the process of trying to get my money back from Brent council, i would say i have 2 hopes, Bob and no.

Funny thing with that singer was when our players went off after the warm up, all our fans cheered them off and the singer put his hand up thinking the cheering was for him!
