    its true that the income isn't shared very fairly, but we knew that was coming when the premier league broke away. And that showed where the loyalties of the f.a. were.
    on the other hand clubs have overpaid - and continue to overpay - on wages.
    £1.5m a year for playing in the second divsion (championship)?
    barmy.

    Can you imagine the Due Diligence any prospective owner would need to do on buying this club.
    The contract for the ground hire would take two months looking into alone.

    It will be a shame if Mel decides to step aside. Maybe he has made a few minor mistakes on the learning curve, but his positive contributions outweigh all of that. He is a local guy and genuine supporter. Not easily replaced.

    All football fans whinge, in the golden years "McGovern was a liability, Gemmill always tried run through a ruck of players instead of the easy route Durban had two left feet. O' Hare was too slow, Green not tall enough." All opinions I heard back then but all Legends in my eyes. just human nature of the football fan i'm afraid.

    I found this article interesting. It's about a club promoted nine or ten times in 19 seasons, now sitting in the National League South. 
    I noted that the owner mentioned the importance of sustainable and local investment - good coaching - and good scouting - and pride in the local community.
    And, specifically, turning down investors flashing the cash - who offer to pay for players, but which he thought would lead to promotions that would be likely to be followed by a crash a few years later.

    Doesn’t this enhance the point that money is only an advantage if you manage it well?
    Burnley didn’t have money to spend upon their initial promotion but used the parachute payments as intended to keep their promotion team together. 
    Hull kept their Prem purchases thanks to parachute payments and by virtue of having a better team were promoted. 
    Rafa sold and spent well. 
    Cardiff were in austerity following three years of mid-table at best and needed the Warnock grind. 
    Fulham’s initial splurge of money went south and they required a sensible rebuild. 

    Norwich used the parachute payments as intended, to stabilise the club. They then built sensibly for three transfer windows and were then promoted. 
    Villa are the only ones really that got there without clear planning or building.
