Unless something drastically changed after the Club aquired Beauwaters(Bowaters)Sports Club, then that should have brought in outside revenue.
Dance Hall and Function Room with sports facilities, what happened to that?

that would have been much more preferable to the crap that you keep posting on both sides of the great divide...your figures are flawed and do not add up to anything like the unaudited accounts posted on MyFc to keep the plebbs happy...

its all too transparent wanchai and the pressure is mounting....you may well have 250k in the bank but its all accounted for and spent...and debt mounting at the rate of 35k per month....

now UU may not be the most reliable source on the planet (well I got most of it right so far and certainly flushed you out) but you are simply above it in space (or beneath it...)

brooks and the web team gorn missing (cor blimey) and refusing to answer questions on the cesspits and the arm waving gaelic john cleese (aka wanchai - lord wah wah - bagdad bob.. can't all be wrong can we...?) arrives to fck up every thread (especially the budget vote one) right on cue....do you think these members and fleet fans are stupid....?

(hopefully not as your application for the post of CEO will be an unmitigated disaster...)

yes or no will suffice but I won't hold my breath...

Using Fleet leisure during the week as a conference centre, lecture hall ,change the hall to banqueting hall. lay a coach on match days a couple pound a head to the ground and back to the club after the game, so that the club gets used more etc etc.

Offer membership to locals(it used to have a five year waiting list), cheap beer(subsidise by the membership costs), get cabaret acts in on weekends. Hire out the Hall for weddings and functions..............Doesn't take a rocket scientist to run it at a profit..........Like Brian Fox did when he managed it for Bowaters!

As a side note Brian drinks in the Earl of Grey now. And his friend Les who used to do the raffles etc with him passed away.

I once sat on Bobby Moore's shoulders. What else is there to say?

Quote/ Do we need a vote on how we're going to vote? But what if the result of that vote resulted from not the preferred method of voting?!!

Interesting figures by Unc but lets not forget its what happens on the pitch for 90 minutes rather than how much you pay individuals that counts. Its so much more fun being the "underdog" and proving everyone wrong.

 

Ebbsfleet not only have a good management team but in Akinde, Long, Smith and Cronin have some highly rated young players. The bulk of the team has also been together for a couple of seasons now and if Liam can add 2-3 quality players plus Mcphee, while increasing the size of his playing squad, I'd fancy us for playoffs regardless of how much other teams are spending.

 

Having said that feel the 10K max. budget is a little cautious by MYFC given the team Liam has built to date but then again at least they are being sensible about it rather than trying to throw money at it.

I'll step in here really quick to ask a question to UU (Unc): Do any of your sources know or can gather how much more money they've added into their player's salary structure over the past couple of years and how has it translated to the play on the pitch? (Understanding that it is a guarded secret, I'm still curious to know.)

 

The one thing that hasn't been told to us is where the players' budget started at in the beginning of the 07/08 season. If it grew with loaned players and other additions, that's fine. But where was the starting point? That would be good to know, because then it is possible to vote on the players' budget point now and have an idea of where it could go in January and beyond.

not sure if I'm getting you rvr but if you are asking me what impact additional monies for new players at certain points of the season can bring....then the answer is plenty and big style...we signed 3 players (and broke the budget which created a loss on the year) after xmas which changed our season and took us into the play offs..

afcw had a cat in hells chance of winning the play offs in ryman prem last season with a very poor 10 grand a week squad and terry brown knew that so he went out and spent 3 grand a week on 4 loan players 4 weeks before the end of the season which transformed his play off squad...those loan players won the play offs for him...they have all but one since left....

Yes, that's where I'm getting at, for the most part. Is it wiser to spend the money early or start low and then add as needed?

But one part of the question that I'm not sure you can answer (without security clearance) would be the percentage of players' salaray from one season to the next or from five years ago from your sources' clubs. If a club of EUFC's size has increased its players' salary budget 5 percent a year over a 3-to-5 year span, how has that translated into the final results on the pitch?

I hope that clarifies some of it.

he he...sorry guys but it aint that easy...firstly YF there is no way that ebbs started the season at 7.5k....grin

 

I have told you on many occasions that these matters will never ever be transparent and I can tell you now that they won't be either at ebbs next season....its the way it is and it will not change....the wage cap ensured that...

 

all the pompous protestations in the world from the varied boards/trust/societies will not change it and don't think that brooks will take the moral high ground either....he has spent the last 4 months playing ebbs chairman at SR and he will now be starting to understand the harsh realities of the way it all works......

 

nuff said...or else I'm gonna end up non gratis mentus....grin

you won your biggest prize...the trophy... with the highest weekly budget you have ever had.....doesn't take anything away from that achievement as for sure the semi final and final opponents had considerably more but you get my drift I am sure.....

Yes. The ends justify the means, in a way.

Just trying to think about this at a different angle. Thanks for the input.

Uncs hi! Your info about the comparative budgets across the league went down very well, thanks, as you may have seen. Without the information, how the hell can MyFc members make any decisions?? It's a no-brainer really.

Brian Smith who owns or owned it, used to be a old mucker of mine, but not seen him for about a year, he had a heart attack, & I was wondering if he had sold the ground because of it, is all
