Off pitch running of clubs is more important than on pitch. Its a business and a really odd sort of business it is. We pay players wages beyond all commercial reality to their real value. They are there for their entertainment value, the more they win/lose the more we are satisfied/dissatisfied. <BR>Compare these entertainers to actors in a theatre. If the public are not turning out and paying at the boxoffice do the producers of the show keeping running it at a loss for their own fun and that of the few who pay? Of course not. <BR>But that is what we see at virtually every non-league club. Economically its ridiculous, though we all know why its happening. Clubs have to join in or quit competing its as simple as that. I sincerely hope a proud club with a tradition like Kingstonian pull through, but I have little sympathy for the management who have failed the simple laws of keeping expenditure under control. The clubs playing crazy money to buy a side are mostly responsible for the big wages, average players are demanding.
