You said earlier that the budget wasn’t being fully used yet. You can’t have it both ways.
And I think you are missing the point. The tragedy is using a big chunk of the budget but still falling short and failing, not in spending a bit more and achieving the aim. That is where a waste of money comes in to the equation. Here’s another saying ‘you have to speculate to accumulate’. The rewards from promotion would far outweigh the cost of a centre half as would the increase in crowds and merchandise sales in the run in.
Of course we don’t know yet where we will end up or who is right or wrong. I am not a manager but I have been watching lower league football at roughly the same level for nearly 60 years and my experience tells me that if we don’t add to the defence in this transfer window we will very likely fail again. Footballing experience doesn’t always come from playing and managing at higher levels.
I didn't say that at all.
If you could guarantee me that signing another centre half would get us promoted, I'd scream from the rooftops for one.
I've watched football at all levels, not just lower league, for 35 years and my experience tells me it's not as simple as that.
They are looking for and working hard on securing that one player, lets both hope they pull it off & that JR gives his approval and his money.
Increased gate receipts and merchandise sales might not always mean increased playing budget.
