LOL you know what I mean, it's going to take a hell of a lot more than 2 million to turn this club around.

Not if it's spent correctly..

Plus what other revenues we'll have coming in when the club's being well run

I agree. The initial investment should allow us to engage a decent management structure and the players necessary to make a difference. The additional revenue from R&R involvement should hopefully help to sustain the restructuring the club needs in terms of youth and a more professional setup.

Surely the safest option with least risk would be to leave things well alone and invest the £2m at William Hill. I’m sure something like finishing outside the playoffs, above the bottom three, and lowest goals for would yield an acceptable return by the time the season is voided.

It didn't take long for the R & R euphoria to start turning to doom & gloom on here. What about all the extra 1,000's of new fans, merchandising and the documentary, let alone £2 million investment on day one.

One person saying they'll need to throw millions at it.

Personally, I think just getting the club running professionally and efficiently with a new football management team will make a huge difference regardless of the money thrown at it.

well the documentary could be funding the £2m, but you are right on the fans.

If R&R attend the first match of next season, it would be a sell out. if we start winning and they attend a few more, then our average could easily be 6k

The Wst have basically held this club back with SH and the rest on ego trips, time to move forward with a total clear out.

Fans will have to be very patient when the new owners take over, Rome wasn't built in a day.

Their is a massive amount of work needed to rebuild this club back up from the pit it resides in.

Wst have taken this club backwards in so many ways it could take up to 5 yrs or more to regain our league status. Unless they throw millions at it which I cannot see happening.

I'm not sure Torquay are a great example. Their owners are property developers who have a really dodgy history with other football and sports stadia.

But they did do one thing right, which was bring in a manager who knows what he's doing, and this is why they are top of the league.

Personally I dont think we need the huge amounts of investment you suggest. Key investment in neglected areas can completely turn us around. Moving away from decisions being made by committees of people who don't understand football will be a big step forward.

Lincoln went up on investment of about £300k. They just spent it properly. I remember one of their fans posting about it a while back. I don't think Macclesfield broke the bank when they went up either although their owner is a massive tit.

The Trust had the Ward money, 1.8 million wasn't it? and blew it all on mind numbingly stupid decisions. Had that money been in the hands of people who had a clue then we'd probably be a league club by now, or at least have a good manager and team in place and not be training on an abandoned school field with no facilities.

So yeah 2 million is plenty if you know what you're doing. It won't just be that though, thats too simplistic.

I believe that it's almost impossible to bring in a successful manager to guarantee success. Very often it's good fortune and the old 'lightning in a bottle' situation.
