Re: Boost the budget

As expected things have gone quiet on the btb front, how realistic is it to expect a surge over the weekend & is DJ's £120k still possible? I know that personally I'll be putting more money in even though my personal financial position is far from sound. That's the spirit. Cut down on the wife's be...

Re: Boost the budget

There is no question Spenny fans would step up if needed. Fortunately for them their club is run in a sustainable way and they generate enough money through their large gate receipts and sponsorship. Also given their prudent financial management and the fact they do not pay over the top wages means...

Naturally the momentum of BTB has stalled after a fabulous start. Hoping the showing of FA Trophy victory will give it a bit of boost today.
There are still many who will get paid at end of month.
Expect a late surge.
