Our owners continue to state we have a top 3 budget, even though it is going 'tits up'.
Not read a lot lately as I get sick of all the constant negativity on here and it is hard to find the facts amongst the moaning and rumours, so can you provide a link to somewhere where it has been stated by our owners that we have a top 3 budget this year ?
I know it was stated when Dempster was appointed that he would have the same budget as last year, but even if we were top 3 last year that doesn't mean we are this year. 3 of last years highest payers may have gone (MK, Bury and County) but some big clubs came down from L2 and I cant imagine the ones that came up from the Conference are doing it on a shoestring. Therefore it is quite feasible that the same budget as last year leaves us in the position of having the 7th or 8th highest budget this season.
