Silk likewise Wycombe - the figure most mentioned was around 10M and that has got them? Rock bottom of the championship and clearly out of their depth. (And you can't really blame management or players) The money to not be a relegation candidate in the championship is several times the money needed to be a promotion candidate in L1.

Reading Leddrede's list I'd say the problem of overspending and being in financial shit clearly does need strict controls to stop it. But why do most clubs do it? Overambition which seems to be a problem we are going to have as fan owned anyway judging by how some vocal fans have spoken since this whole debate came up. So it's probably more important than ever that DTB and FCB are very, very clear that things like spending budget we don't have and digging us into a financial pit, as did happen, isn't acceptable.

It is also worth mentioning that Peterborough - whose owner was linked with us - are still essentially a L1 club with odd Championship season - I do not think they have ever stayed up - and have not really progressed. I think you could really be looking at someone investing at least 100 million for us to be a decent Championship side. That includes the stadium upgrade

Football has changed and there are glass ceilings - it will be hard to see us be more than a L1 club without a sugar daddy willing to spend countless millions.
The problem with selling out is the main question - who to?? It is all very well going on social media and moaning about the budget which will keep us L1 at best but who do you trust to buy the club and take it forward? Do you have any names that we can make a reasoned decision on? That was the trouble with the three amigos we got no information to make an informed choice on the subject. For me selling out would be only if the buyer would be willing to complete the stadium to 20000 without loaning the club the money but paying for it themselves. Anything else would leave us no better than we currently are at and it is pointless

I wonder how many who want us to sell out are Dons Trust members or are willing to stand for that at an election. It would be a way to democratically see how much will there is. I do not agree with banning it outright though.
Meadow, yes I heard it on the radio the pay rise isn't to shabby, given many will lose their jobs once furlough is ended. Like R S, not been there for a full year, but have done 6 months, a welcome addition nonetheless.

My brother is a driver for Tescos, he loves do the Seaview to Bembridge coast drops, apparently there are a number of celebrities who tip rather well...
How is the beer supply to the new pub and bars coming along?

RS - always annoys me when you go to a venue and all they have is Carling (less common these days thankfully) or Fosters (all too common these days....).

Secret - I went to Gilpin too, first year in when it opened (was at Old Central in Camp Road first, then we all moved across).

It’s Ricards Lodge. No K in the name. My primary school and middle school used to share sports fields with the young ladies of said educational establishment!

Bishop Gilpin and Park House if you were wondering. The former is still in use, the latter a sad victim of the change from a three tier system to a two tier system in Merton. Shame as it was a brand new school in my second year at middle school (came across from Pelham middle).
Lol,I've seen some wonderful bands at butlins, showaddywaddy,black lace,T'Pau, modern romance and jive bunny

Alan, RS, heard about the pay rise and bonus? Pay rise isn't all that but the 3% bonus for the year is nice.

TF, yes that's why I said he had his faults. In a funny way that has probably backfired in that it may have helped us get promotion to L1 where we are effectively punching above our weight in terms of finances which has in turn led some to question the 'business model' of the club

It’s just humanity at the moment Shergy. The internet is bringing about sweeping changes in communication and the weakest part is turning out to be the humans that use it. Twitter is a fucking horrible place to spend time.
