A really poor performance in the second half. Waters as captain was shocking does not lead by example and Collins prancing around offers no threat. Expecting us to be better but certain players are letting us down. Endo in goal was barracked throughout the match and unfortunately made an error for their first goal.

Managed to convince two of my brothers and a mate to come today. Was embarrassing to say the least performance wise.
However they liked the vibe of our fanbase!
The board signed these players ergo they are to blame.

Of course the board are to blame.
Either we could be rubbish and still have £1m in the bank for a new ground, or we could be good and foolishly spending the Womble money rapidly.
Instead, due to their total and utter ineptitude, we have a dreadful football team AND ALSO no money in the bank.
So yeah, it is the board’s fault.

I’m becoming more and more ambivalent as to whether I even want us to stay up. The Womble money is the only thing that can give us any hope of ever getting a ground, yet we’re frittering it away at an alarming rate. Why, just so we can limp on at step 3, just about staying up while playing in a ground miles from Kingston that most of us hate? What’s actually the point?
At least if we go down, a competitive budget costs a lot less and perhaps we can hold on to what’s left of our money. It would also bring a lot more suitable ground-sharing options into play, both by ending this ridiculous Southern League bogyeyman about Imber Court, and by bringing lower graded grounds like Raynes Park Vale and Molesey into play.

Someone asked me on Friday how i was so sure the AFC money was now below £700 000. Well, apart from the official accounts, let's not forget Mark Anderson said in a video interview with Jamie (two years ago?) that the money was down to £750 000. That tallied with the accounts a year later showing around £730 000. Now the newest accounts show another drawdown of £60 000.
It's disappearing. What's the plan?
The liabilities prior to the Wimbledon money was approx 100k and it’s noted which director had made the loans. Since 2017 it’s currently standing at 900k and went up to that amount when the afc money was received.
it can only be one of two things
there’s some great thing going on behind the scenes which requires no financial or other input from anyone else
£60k a year or so will give us at least till 2030 and by then crowds will be down to about 60 so no-one will care
I think another useful question for the SC committee would be what proportion of the £150 000 FA Cup money was extracted to repay loans and what was reinvested in the club.

The run to the 2nd round and £80 000 for football focus and highlights etc.
The same question could be asked of the £60,000 we received for Bilongo.
