Abbreviated accounts for the previous financial year (year-end 30th June 2013) are available at Companies House (Company number 03858150) - they show that the Investors put a lot of capital in... not as loans either...

...and if they continue to do so next season - don't panic, there are no indications that they won't - I think everyone should fully expect them to try and ensure the operation is run as cost-effectively as possible.

Expect a number of "exceptional costs" to appear in the accounts for the current financial year.

There is two glaring problem with putting a new team together at the end of July beginning of August .

The players don't have a pre season and therefore go into the new season unfit....how many players have we all seen arrive late and take ages to deliver because they aren't fit.

Second given we are basically starting from scratch bar 4 players they will have no time to become a team before the league starts....which usually means a poor start to the season.

Releasing so many iand late recruitment is fraught with pitfalls and it seems we are walking right into them. That said the CEO and manager are experienced so maybe they will pull it off....it's looking like a challenge.

Why the **** couldn't the club come to the fans for investment like other clubs have done on occasion to maintain the contracts and hang on to the better players at least?????



Seriously,how much investment could supporters realistically put towards the players wages.I for one would certainly not contribute to someone earning 3,000 to 6000 a week.Its about time players at this level have a reality check and I'm glad the club are taking this route regarding the wages.
Honestly,does anyone really think the quality of the football we have seen is worth the money the players are paid.?
If we as fans decided we wanted help the club out and have a whip round to cover Matt Tubbs wages then we'd have to find well over 7000 per match for the honour,I don't think so!!!

I agree Lee... the best things we can do is to evangelise the live match experience to those that just might be interested... and pester anyone who could provide sponsorship, advertising or even services to help with revenues.

Indeed Thad

i don't see any of the squad current or just released coming to us to offer up their cash to help fund our near 400 season tickets so i don't see why we as fans should fund their wages

if the wages which some players were rumoured to be on were true then just one of the top earners could have bought the fans upto 20 season tickets in ONE weeks wages

And Wayne Rooney could buy about 500 season tickets for Man United supporters in ONE weeks wages!

Who'd want a season ticket to watch Man U , not me , that's for sure.

I knows which red devils I'd rather watch.

Good chat Lee. Market forces dictate the players wages and I don't have a problem with that, but you can't pay someone 2 or 3 times (or more) the average wage and then go cap in hand to those earning less than the average wage in order to cover them.

Fans are often found helping out with infrastructure projects at smaller clubs (or even doing the windows for a couple of free tickets Wink ) but not paying the wages of people who earn vastly more than they do.
