    Hi, Just came on to take a quick swipe at the chairman and board of directors in charge of my Kettering side at the moment.
    I have transformed the team from nothing into a team who won the BSN, won the play-offs in BSP and just won Coca Cola League 2.
    I am currently in L1, to get this far the money i have spent, £7,000 on a polish keeper from bolton. My wage bill is £50k the budget is £30k
    .
    My point is the lack of ambition from the board disheartens me , no money for better players no wage money, seemingly no direction

    but

    Imraan Ladak says he loves the club! I need him to step down NOW!!! anyway i can give him a push??

    Sadly no. I too am at Kettering, but only in season 2 currently pushing for promotion/play-offs.

    I must admit, my wage budget was significantly increased after promotion, but my overall finances are in the red, so the board can't afford to give me any funds, even if I sell first.

    What are your finances like? I would assume you are making good profit to expect a higher wage and transfer budget.

    How did you manage to go so much above budget with your wages? Perhaps this lack of financial control is the reason your board won't give you cash to spend?

    I too can't get a parent club.

    I'm making slight profit every month, about 10k and am currently 70k in the red.

    If the club is in debt then obviously the board won't be giving you any more money, especially with your wage budget issues.

    Looks like it might be a long difficult road to the EPL, I was hpoing to see a financial boost upon making into CCL2, assuming one day that I do.

    My wage budget is currently 18k a week(I'm a few hundred under) and think I already have a squad that can survive CCL2 without any aditions, so I'll be trying to keep my wages well under budget in the future in hope to get either a capacity increase or a decent transfer budget, due to having a strong over-all balance.

    I'm glad you posted about this though, gives me something to think about in the future.

    why would you work all the way up to CL1 and then abandone them. I am alfreton and every year I win the league (without cheating) and I am currently 1st on CL1. I have to get them the champions league before I leave them. Also I have no youth academy and no reserve team. I find it that it helps with the finances

    Never seen this before. Must **** you right off lol.
    Even when i was a chilean 2nd div side, the board still looked for a feeder club - although they couldn't find anyone interested lol.

    It was a right pain, i thrive to build a succesful youth side for the level and feeder clubs are an integral part of my plan and routine!! *******
