Might as well change our name to scumbag rejects. It's not that fucking difficult to keep us a scum free zone.

So we have now gone from a half decent budget to an apparently conference level budget in one season despite not being relegated, Power flip flops all over the place.....

Has Power actually said any of this?

I assume that was sarcasm in response to:

Power isn't the type to publicly set expectations at conference budget, even if it happens.

I think Power has actually said that we had something like a top 10 budget last season, and a budget near the top this. I know it's just 'what he says' and that we can't necessarily believe that, but at no point has he said anything about a conference level budget. That's just people like Reg et al adding their own negative spin to it because, you know, that's what they do. If he did say such a thing, though, then that statement would conveniently be one of the statements we can believe. Although, of course, we can't trust what he says, except for when he says things that suit one's personal narrative. It's akin to Christians and their cherry-picking of the bible

Operating within our means in this league could well mean having the largest budget, or thereabouts. We are simply a big team for this league, although, budget tables are likely to be skewed by some clubs spending more than they generate. Now, unlike some certain others, I won't pretend to actually know the innermost workings of the club and Power's thoughts, so I won't claim to know either way where the budget really is. Unless those making claims of such a low budget can provide a shred of supporting evidence for their claim, however, then I'm inclined to lean toward them being full of shit.

Oh, and I know things ain't exactly great and, but that does not necessarily support claims of the budget being so low. As evidenced by the 2010-2011 season.

I eagerly look forward to my post being 'countered' with yet more unsubstantiated claims, logical fallacies and hyperbole.

  It's not so much about the raw figures, but rather the efficacy of the spend.

  Here's an interesting article about Chesterfield by David Conn.

  https://www.theguardian.com/football/2018/may/02/chesterfield-relegation-from-football-league

 The feel is that PB, is a bit too high profile for us atm, probably unable to work effectively with the grade of player we have at our disposal and likely to attract next season.  With that in mind a Waddock class manager may well be a much better fit, if we are to avoid a Chesterfield fate.
