The owner and majority share holder has to come out and name his price. Stop all this nonsense, open up, be honest and tell everyone what you are willing to take to walk away.

People who know me know I'm not usually one for this kind of bashing but from what I was told today everything a lot of posters have said about the majority share holder is true... Ex manager at the game today and hes opened up and backed up what a lot of people on here have said about being given no money, genuinely wanted to stay but got given a next to nothing budget and wasn't allowed to offer a contract to a certain player (who is now playing championshipp football!)

I think with a half decent budget MJ will be a decent manager for us and although results arent great at the moment I'm behind him. Utm

We didn’t challenge for the title because we had a smaller budget than all of the eventual champions due to either parachute payments or rich owners. We didn’t invest our payments appropriately (did we get any?!)  or pump money in (other than the fans). Can we finally let this one lie? It was hard enough to be automatically promoted as it was.

Hurst is the one not letting it go (apparently) if I was him I’d be lying low after the shambles he’s created at Ipswich

If a small budget helped to get rid of those two then he did us a favour



Well I did try to tell you all Jolley was a mistake

Was congratulating a Sheffield United supporting friend last night and he told me they have the 8th lowest budget in the championship.  

So it's really is all about how you spend your money, as we have seen with Chesterfield, Accrinton and others in recent years.

While having one of the biggest budgets in any division does not guarantee success it certainly increases the chances of success. The future planning of GTFC can't be based upon using anomalies like Accrington, it's akin to signing up to the "football fortune" business model. If you look at the top of our division, three of the biggest spenders fill three of the top four positions. The top five biggest budgets fill the top five places in League One, the top six biggest budgets in the Premier League are in the top six. Norwich and Sheff Utd have bucked the trend in the Championship this season, but the biggest budgeted teams, Newcastle and Wolves won it most recently. Waiting patiently in the hope of being an anomaly with a small budget is a huge risk and how many other teams have got relegated with one of the smallest budgets in the division? Plenty more than have got promoted. A better business and planning model for GTFC is to work frantically to find ways to amass one of the bigger budgets in the division without overspending. The only way to do this is to attract external investment or increase matchday and advertising revenue. Failing that, the Exeter model, unearthing young talent to sell on for big six figure fees or even seven figures seems to work well for them and Brentford higher up the pyramid. Of course if a football club is switched on it would be doing all three at the same time, increasing matchday revenue, sponsorship and advertising, GTFC stagnant at best and will probably drop over the summer, attract new inward investment, never at GTFC, and unearthing new talent, well we're offering youth more pro contracts but no proof of any future Bogles as of today. If we're waiting around to do an Accrington, for every Accrington there are at least a dozen Yeovils, Barnets or Dagenhams. It's a risky game trying to stave off apathy and a downward spiral season after season but I guess hoping for the anomaly of one season in ten or twenty which is football fortune is exactly where we are at the moment, and we should be doing much better than that behind the scenes and trying to find ways to have a bigger cloth to sustainably cut from..

We got a parachute payment for the first season. But surely because we didn't get further parachute payments and we don't have rich owners then it follows that our budget would have been smaller than some clubs. JF is comparatively wealthy ( especially as regards the average man in the street or local businessman ) but he would hardly come under the classification as " rich " ,certainly compared to a lot of other football club owners.
