Last night we got a much needed win over @drfc_official

This was of critical importance to our club from a business sense and here’s why:

Most would think it’s the money, the @EFL distribution and @premierleague solidarity.

It’s not.
The increase in income between @SkyBetLeagueTwo and @SkyBetLeagueOne is insignificant. It’s more than offset by increased costs.

Some owners think that blowing money in @SkyBetLeagueTwo is worthwhile because income rises as you go up, covering the hole they’ve created, goes up, but there’s an even bigger hole on promotion. The cost to put a team our increases more than any income growth.

From @SkyBetLeagueOne to @SkyBetChamp it’s much worse.

You have to literally blow your brains in to get to @premierleague

Now, many that aren’t.. the top 6 are losing money too now.

It’s a shite financial structure from top to bottom if you’re not top 6 @premierleague and it is getting worse.

So those promoted from @SkyBetLeagueOne to @SkyBetChamp have my full admiration, not just because getting promoted this..
..Year has been so difficult, with a few clubs over 90pts, but because their difficulties might have only just begun. They deserve all the luck.

Back to @ASFCofficial ...

We need to stay up from a business sense because on relegation we would be only one bad season away..
...from oblivion. The absolute nightmare created by the football genius at our ruling authorities.

One bad run from oblivion.

One where a single Trevor Kettle moment could send our club into financial free fall.

So if we were to be relegated all progress has to slow down.
It has to slow down because I’ve spent this season looking at the financial ramifications of relegation and @SkyBetLeagueTwo football,

BUT if that was to happen I’d have to spend next season looking @TheNationalLge financial ramifications.

Our @EFL @premierleague virtually wash their hands of you.

Look at the clubs that have gone down to @TheNationalLge in recent years.

So @SkyBetLeagueTwo is nothing other than a financial safety net to me.

Staying up guarantees at least 2 years of some income.

I can plan.
Good morning BTW.
