So Scunny are the second highest spenders in league 2 who is first? Surely the likes of Salford must be up there in terms of wage bills. How do they get around financial fair play when both teams must pull in significantly less in money from attendances than us?

Surely Bradford with their 14,000 season ticket holders must have the biggest budget?

Oldham must be close if they have 56 players signed on!

Bradford are getting rid of players. Looks like they are cutting their cloth.

Salford or FGR would be my bet, if the scunts bill is higher than either of theirs then they are going to be in big trouble. They have the parachute payment this season, not sure if they get it next season. They are going to have to get rid of a lot of players and backroom staff.

You can spend 45% of the money the c!ub brings in for players salaries.

Bradford  season tickets are dirt cheap so they do not have as much as you would think.

My money is on Salford as their millionaire backers are putting vast amounts to climb as high as they can go.

In my eyes that is L 1 at best.He

We have a bit extra coming in from John and Ollie so we will be able to bring in a few better players for next season.

Talking to a scunny fan this morning and evidently Mr Swanns Sands Hotel isn’t even open yet, the way he gets through managers he could open a home for sacked scunny managers, think it would need quite a few rooms.

And who knows what may happen in the next few months?

If Ollie keeps up that feel good factor and 'oofs us up the table then we only have to get one good investor/sponsor/shareholder who can deposit a tidy sum in the coffers (no lottery winners though) and who knows where it could take us.

The Mullens would have been okay if they had of just kept their traps shut and been silent investors. Never gonna happen though!
