I have one question… Does money rule The Blue Square Prem?

In the news accross the last three days reports of big name players such as Emile Heskey have been linked to joining some Blue Square sides (Macclesfield and Wrexham). As last year proves with Fleetwood Town, if you spend money and have a large budget then you can be successful. This was proved by Fleetwood winning the league with over 100 points last time around.

As Fleetwood went up last season, it leaves the big spending to another club, this time around I feel this spending force is our Cheshire Rivals, Macclesfield Town. With other teams on a shoe string budget such as The Hatters it makes it very hard to progress back to The Football League with spending forces.

This summer saw Macclesfield relegated from The Football league, very similar to County one year previously. The story between the two clubs can be very similar, with both clubs releasing over 15 players following their relegation and both clubs employing new managers. The way both clubs went was to invest heavily in the sides, if I must say one club did it more successfully…..

With Macclesfield investing heavily into their side, aswell as other teams such as Luton, Mansfield, Forrest Green, Wrexham and Lincoln all spending big in the summer making it hard for any club to succseed throught he value of money.

What are the chances of success with allt he money around? How can any snmall club progress with the like sof the big spenders in the league?

What are your thoughs?

  • Good story Josh, from a financial point of view we haven’t a cat in hell’s chance but if Jimbo can weld these guys into a half decent outfit then who knows?, money thankfully is not the be all and end all.
    Come on County

  • It is going to be tough for County over the next two or three season before I think we can mount a strong challenge. Just hope Jim Gannon keeps the fire in his belly for the duration. Finding rough diamonds and polishing them whilst hopefully keeping the club break even off the pitch has to be the way forward (sugar daddy/mummy’s excepted)
