One of the most pleasing aspects of our little old club having a second great season on the trot is that we play things, on a financial scale, by the book.
We`re not one of those clubs that are prepared to speculate millions jus ton the off-chance we`re going to accumulate success, we`re prepared to pay sensible salaries, chip away at those above and live content that our club will not be doing a Portsmouth, a Leeds or suffer the fate awaiting those who are prepared to spend far more than there revenue provides.
It`s a point that (Sir) Roy Hodgson has picked up on when he`s remarked,
"The amount of money that the top teams are spending increases every year - not just the transfer fees but also wages."
"The chairman has said this week that clubs should not really be living beyond their means and depending on sugar daddies in order to survive."
"I totally agree with that philosophy so it would be unwise of me to say that we should try to break into that top six by breaking the bank."
"Some teams have a massive advantage over Fulham - they have a capacity of 60,000 to 70,000 whereas we have 23,000."
"The existence of the club is more important than short term gain."
And that last line is probably the crux of the matter is it not? Surely the continued existence of our football club is all that matters; the fact that we`re enjoying such success is just reward for the efforts put it!
