Let’s hope so. It’d be nice to have other clubs frustrated at not being able to compete with us financially for a change.

Long way to go yet though, we know there’s investment but how much beyond £2m will be the question.

Is it acceptable that we accept investment whilst being critical of others who have done the same?

I’m of the opinion that huge investment is required for the club to thrive in the future. Should we end up with new owners I’d quite happily see us “buy the league”!

Not for while we are in Non-League as we are one of the biggest clubs and essentially deserve promotion.
If we get promoted from League Two then we might end up as a “plastic club” in league one.

Not the clubs mentioned but I would say with investment we could emulate what Lincoln have done. On paper we could get to L1 with 10K+ crowds.

Of course the main issue with any investment is that it is used right and IMHO the current set up can't be trusted with that money after the Ward money was squandered and the long list of poor decisions.

There's some small clubs in league one. Our attendances would be top half easily.

My thinking is along these lines.

The worst things about the clubs mentioned was how farcical it was that they had a squad value of double ours, and yet were getting the kind of crowds that we'd get for an open training session.

By their very nature, their fortunes were unsustainable.

You've even had owners at Dover and Eastleigh berating the community for not coming out in as big numbers as hoped.

Unlike the teams mentioned, I'd like to think that with well placed investment, we could become self-sustainable within a few years.

We've already got ourselves out of the debts left to us by the previous regimes. With this extra boost, and the installation of a professional club set-up, we can go from strength to strength.

No we're not. All three clubs listed are basically manufactured and have no history worth speaking about before the money came.

We have a big fan base to tap in to, so in many ways we're a more attractive investment proposition.
