All this talk of what our playing budget may or may not be seems to be a new thing and not something discussed since the formation of our Senior Team in 2012, either here or on the Members Closed Forum. Someone on this thread has already mentioned, not for the first time I would add, the matter of our playing budget and how it relates to other clubs. If someone within the club is in the 'know' as to what our budget is and how it relates to other clubs in our division then I feel it is out of order for that person to broadcast it.
The general perception by many fans is that our club having by far the best attendances/associated match day revenue then we should be near the top in the amount we can afford to allocate for our playing budget or is it a case that we are competing against clubs with a 'money man' or a better ability to generate more commercial income? If this is the case then we will need an exceptional management team or luck to progress further.

Trek, if your post was in relation to what I said then I assure you I am not, not have I claimed to be, “in the know”, far from it! I’m also not “within the club” as you put it - if it wasn’t in relation to my comment that’s fine.

The comment I referred to was made by someone not even associated with our football club - I mentioned it purely as something that had been overheard - if you want to know who, come and ask me!

Pigman, I certainly wasn't thinking of you being in the 'know' but to an earlier post in this thread.

I notice Aylesbury Utd drew - if they lose their replay a trip there would be the obvious fixture.
That did happen last night, so hopefully that fixture can fill the void.
They say we've lost our money we're not famous anymore.....

I'm afraid not, even though their landlords (Chesham Utd) are away that day - http://www.afcdiamonds.com/new-date-for ... ury-united
