Unless our chief exec, director and manager are all blatantly lying on record, then the answer is yes.

None of them will be on Championship wages. Gosling is just here few a few weeks to gain fitness.

LW did say in the forum that the reason we are able to afford players like McG, Jones and Crowley is that we have a relatively small squad, which was a calculated risk. Our director also said that the club were surprised at the size of other L2 clubs' budgets - they originally thought ours would be among the biggest, but in fact it has us upper-mid-table in budget terms.
They talking crap to your fan base .Notts in their accounts don't specify what their budget is Why you may ask ? Because they don't want others clubs knowing what they spend( alot of clubs do this).All the accounts tells anyone is Notts overspent by 2 million.
The narrative Notts want is look we don't spend very much and if they are above 10th we are doing very well.
The key is ensuring you don't spend more than 55% of your revenue on wages as you will be breaking league rules and we must do the same

To be fair you came on here with the “inside scoop” and got shot down for it as it’s obviously bollocks.

Just because you want it to be, doesn't mean it's obviously bollocks.

To someone not so biased it obviously is.

We got told similar under fan ownership but the other way around if you like “it’s a competitive budget” “play offs are achievable with this budget”. An interview with the manager since has proved that to be wrong.

People lie, especially in football.

If you think you had 2 million losses last year, owe 14 million (or whatever the figure is) to your owners, have some of the biggest crowds in the division, amazing owners (according to you) and are still only 10th in budget stakes?

I’d say that’s a pretty poor business model.
