    Lots of signings being made, am I right we’ve even paid a fee for a player? So can we assume that all the bills have been paid, debts settled and all is rosy in the garden?

    II will be along in a minute to tell us we’ve used the unpaid pension contributions to sign him.
    Jimmy is going to have a lot of toys to play with, hope he was good with Meccano in his youth so he gets all the right bits in the right place and the finished article works properly.

    It’s fine assembling what appears to be the best squad in the league if we haven’t either a tried and tested manager or a stadium to play in.

    Borrowing against what?

    Could do with a few more splashing the cash on the prediction league. £15 for shirt sponsorship/entry to prediction league and a contribution to site cost.

    “borrowing against what?,”
    He could have borrowed against the ground if he’d done what he said he had.

    I did say his “ability” Ferrite, and he seems to be doing rather well at the moment.

    I’d say by this analogy that you think Swann was a Messiah,he bought players like on a supermarket trolley dash

    Since when did Scunthorpe United signing NL/NLN players become ‘splashing the cash’?

    I can’t imagine Boreham Wood, Kings Lynn, Altrincham, York, Eastleigh etc are big spenders!

    Spent a lot of money this time last year at Peterborough Sports, got to mid table before leaving…

    There was one bill “forgotten” in that season too. We’ll see.

    You reckon encouraging players to drop down a level or 2 and move to Scunthorpe won’t require a premium in wages?

    Not to a level that would be considered ‘splashing the cash’ for SUFC.

    Cal Roberts is probably the only exception coming from the SPFL.

    Our budget should naturally be higher than every club in the NLN and majority of clubs in the NL.

    In non-league I suspect budgets are dictated by attendances, and looking at the average attendances in NLN for the 22/23 seasion (link below) I would suggest that we will have the largest average attendance for the coming season (especially if we are doing well).

    His ability to borrow, why does he need to do that :-P? Besides, he was putting *his* money into the club via gifts and share capital, not loans.

    I’ve never been a big fan of the flash no cash brigade. Being leveraged up to within an inch of your life is not a good look especially if you make a habit of losing the shirt on your back.

    Borrowing against what?

    Could always try getting a mortgage on the lease of GP. He wouldn’t be the first football club owner to actually do it.

    I concur. Let’s face it, we’re the Real Madrid of NLN and require the players to prove it.

    All we need now is somebody to drug Lavery, stick a sack over his head and bring him here for us to sign him from Donny.

    That would be mission accomplished.

    Lol, ‘the Real Madrid of NLN’. We’d better had ‘piss the league’ then, as you’re fond of saying. Otherwise we’ll be a laughing stock.

    Can’t see that splashing the cash really matters, we could always enter administration, Macc went out of business but now are only one league below, did them the power of good.

    Living in the Barrio Pilar for a year as a student, I was happy to support the real Real Madrid back in 1972/73.

    Worry not. This is the start of our ascent to greatness. We have dropped as low as we’re going to drop and this is when we start clawing it back.

    I know games aren’t won on paper but this squad we have is way, way above every other team in NLN. If we don’t get promotion this season, Dean needs to be banned from football because if he can’t manage it with this group of players at this level, he doesn’t deserve to be a manager.

    Really by rights this squad we have now would finish top half of National League. All we need is a good striker to add to the others and it would finish it off.

    Okay, think I’ve got it: ‘worry not…if we don’t…if he can’t manage’..etc

    An interesting take on ‘certainty’ if nothing else. Think it’s called spreading your bets. However you don’t seem too certain about Dean.

    Hull City Council own the MKM stadium lock stock and barrel. Russell Bartlett, previous owner, used the lease on it to get a £3.4m loan from RBS which he shuffled around holding companies, as well as paying himself a million quid in wages. Easy peasy when you’re a property developer!
