Where has all the money gone ?????

Postby County#9 » May 6th, 2018, 2:05 pm

If the rumours are true where has all the money gone . We took almost a million with the fa cup I, inflated prices for fa cup games and hospitality , Lee Evans sell on and Welsh cap , ridiculous academy prices and kit , more percentage on bar takings , so where has it all gone . We deserve to know as a fans owned club .

Have some respect for the fans who helped bail you out and tell us .

If we lost 350k the year before we should easily have at least 500k in the bank . So where has it all gone ???

At the last meeting didn't they say the next was on the 10th May, if that is still on then ask your question then?

Do we know that the money has in fact gone?.... Doesn't it form part of next season's 55% budget FFP thing? I get lost sometimes as to what year's money is for what. I've never understood why it takes so long to publish accounts.

Not a rumour.
Hope we are not in debt but nothing for spends.
Basically all gone.
Bills paid hopefully and that's it?

Let’s wait and see before jumping to conclusions. I agree that it would be utterly insane if that’s just disappeared! If it has been spent then the club will have something to show for it I would imagine which would be a plus (hopefully).

I would probably put the same rumour out if i was on the bod knowing that agents would be asking for more money for exactly the same player

I would not expect there to be any surplus money around the cup run ensured survival.
Pre cup run one could have expected us to lose around £350k this year and similar next if playing budget was similar. So there goes the cup money if the club chose to budget within means and not on basis of future unknowns player sales / cup runs.
There may be a little available for Flynn to build squad but I would not expect a step change in budget.
3,500 gates will always struggle to support a competitive full time team.

This is what I don't understand. We get told things like: " We expect to make a small profit ".... "The club is on a fairly stable financial footing".... etc, then we get a £700K cup run, 15,000 extra league fans over the season, and yet now we're apparently skint????

What source did you discover this depressing state of affairs is it fact or fiction ?
Did it come from the horses mouth or out of its ass ?
