The difference is that we have the fan base doing it whereas some clubs have a sugar daddy.
BTB was never needed to support the playing budget though, there was just a group of fans who insisted that the club adopt it. Eastleigh's money has by contrast lifted them artificially; I've got no problem with that but it's quite different.

Our model doesn't rely on a single individual so, in theory, is sustainable in perpetuity.
Exactly.

Without similar "investment" next season, their £2.5 million loss from this season will either cause them to fold, or dump the players for cheap alternatives - with consequences.
if you told me we would have investment which meant we could get into league two, but would then have to get cheaper players because the money to pay higher wages was withdrawn..........I'd snatch your hand off!!!!

That’s the kicker. Our last “sugar daddy”/“local successful businessman” didn’t do that and we lost our ground, training facilities and almost our existence. I’d be very very surprised if Eastleigh’s wrote it all off.

You cannot be serious!!!

How the f... could we afford any players if we were haemorrhaging £2.5 million a year, let alone players with the ability to keep us up in L2? For the sake of 5 metaphoric minutes glory, would you really grab the chance of another relegation to non-league, followed by another 10 years in the wilderness?

I do hope you are in a minority of one.

Apparently he's not asking for any money for his shares either so the future of the club depends on the intentions of the new owner and how big his pockets are.

I suppose that's the difference between the likes of Eastleigh and us.

If a sugar daddy pulled out and left us with shareholder's funds of £2.5m, we could cut our cloth accordingly and manage just fine while someone with the fan base of Eastleigh could end up going bust in a couple of seasons if they didn't cut costs dramatically.

Big question is though is why do all the sugar daddies support tin pot clubs?
Its all about levels of wealth. If you were worth £20m then sticking £500k a year into a lower league club to indulge your love of the game is achievable and for a club at a certain level that could really kick them on, however get into the need to put £1m a year in and you realistically need to be in the £40-80 net worth bracket so your man with £20m wouldn't cut it.

You are spot on with the observation on the shares, people shouldn't get hung up on a loss of £2.5m, losses are only a historic view, not a forward projection. No one sticks in £2.5m of share capital injection without the intent to use it, if its used it needs to go on the balance sheet somewhere, in this instance as a loss to balance the injection.

Cash flow is king in football not necessarily P&L, losses aren't what historically drops smaller clubs into trouble cash flow does.

For example Wrexham's accounts last year might look better than the likely cash position as a transfer fee was placed onto the income field whereas some of the cash position looks to sitting in amounts due over 1 year probably due to being payed in installments.

I could do the same in my business, we could bank work in progress into the P&L yet our payment terms are on successful acceptance testing so I can stick profit into the P&L that I haven't been paid for, its the same with some losses. Cash is king in the small business.

Money is always needed to support the playing budget. Its one of the reasons we struggled after FAT final. Not going into that conversation again though.

The whole point of BTB was to give Keates a chance to sign better quality to avoid the drop. When he took over he didnt really have any budget to work with.

The fans raised a great start amount and asked the club to assist with collecting the monies so it was assistance not insistence the fans wanted.

Presumably we could offload said players, and reduce that loss? Cut our cloth? I don't mean carry on with a subsidised wage bill with no subsidy! Yes, this would mean poorer players for league 2, but we cam take our chance.

Also our loss wont be as big as we have more income.

Nice place Eastleigh , pleasant walk from the station to the ground through the country park , good little ground but no fan base and no regular income.
If they flop as they probably will most of their spectators will revert to watching Southampton and very few tears will be shed.

We were getting what we were told was a top 5 budget through the gate before BTB. Most people back it but we did not need it like Eastleigh needed one man to write cheques.
