I also am very suspect that there is a policy not to get promoted until we are financially more secure. The playoffs both this and last season are beginning to smell in terms of performance etc.
I think all this talk of having loads of money to get promoted is a load of ballacks, i mean maldon by all accounts dont seem to have these money men and certainly dont have much income in the way of gate receipts thus not much from proggie sales etc etc and they have gone on to finish 4th in the table.
At the end of the day you just need a squad of 20 players who WANT to play for the club and ENJOY and PERFORM everytime they wear there clubs colours. Maybe they should not get a basic pay in there contracts but get paid based on results, goals, assists, clean sheets etc.
PS i did see jc get off his backside and bellow instructions it was at the lino and were along the lines of you are fecking useless, u fecking just cost us promotion, he then went and sat back down but within a minute he was back up again and over the fence.
