Spytty also has lots of other facilities to use purely for fitness, static cycles at the velodrome, running track, swimming etc etc.

Our previous manager thought it was a hinderance. Wanted money spent on our own facilities as he was fed up having to move around training at Hartridge and wherever else they could find when we couldn't use the other facilities,
Our previous Manager though also wasted lots of money securing the services of players managed by Elite. Perhaps if he had spread the net wider than Elite we may have had some monies to put towards a training complex.
Manager can only spend what the Board allow him to.
Agree. And didn't County have some sort of tie-in with Elite for awhile. But there is a difference between allowing the Manager money to buy players and allowing him to waste money on players not up to standard. And too many players were brought in, that were managed by Elite, that were not good enough. Hence the appointment of the Sporting Director and Flynn throwing his toys out the pram.

I think it's a fair criticism of Flynn's transfer policy in relation to the budgets he was given each year. In many ways he was a good Manager, on transfers he wasn't so good.

Of course he wasted money, we know that, BUT, that shouldn't take away from the fact as a club we have absolutely shit all to show for the vast sums of money we've made over the last few years.

...because Flynn was allowed to dictate the budget he needed and then spend it unwisely...

Which, again, is wholly the fault of the Board.

Apart from the substantial sums of money in the bank declared in the last 2 sets of accounts.
Our last set of declared accounts stated we made a trading profit of £26k.
I don't class that as substantial when some of the squad are earning £100k+ per year.

I haven’t looked at the accounts so, how much cash do we have in the bank?

He always looked tidy, albeit against U21's and second string sides but let's see how he does first. I hope he does well though, nice lad too.
I thought Brentford might have kept him seeing as he was their u23's player of the year this season, but they let him go to sign for a league 2 side.
