    I've included him in the first place.

    I'd say it's safe to assume Jarvis Edobor has left, given he only played in that Croydon Athletic game. We've since signed Nathan Smith, too.

    Shame - I think he was quite highly thought of at Brentford.

    Probably, but then we sometimes seem to carry people as part of the training squad for a fair length of time, so unless someone actually resurfaces at another club or is confirmed to have been released I assume we may still hold his registration.

    I notice Amos Nasha played for EastThurrock United today.

    Must be costing an absolute fortune to feed this lot after training.

    Good article in the SLP with background to signings.

    Dulwich Hamlet boss Rose reveals plan for cash banked from FA Cup run

    Although the lead is about not spending the FA Cup "windfall", Gavin talks in depth about the two new signings, saying neither were about the cup tie and would have come in anyway. Dempsey had been identified from last season as a player Gavin wanted.

    Surely a lot of it will be spent on off field stuff, rather than future playing budget?

    Hopefully none of it has been spent. Hopefully it’s being saved as contingency against the possibility of being kicked out of the ground again at the end of the season. Even then, all the windfall wouldn’t cover the shortfall.

    So we broke even last season. So what’s paid for the new terracing & upgrade on the floodlights for example if it’s not the cup run money...to name but two things?

    Presumably those improvements were budgeted for at the start of the season, based on breaking even again with no Cup games and a 2100 (I think, correct me if I’m wrong) average gate. Certainly the terracing must have been, as it was put in in June/July, ie well before the Cup money arrived.

    I don't have anywhere enough detail to make an informed view but I have wondered about the decision to go "full-time" this season and the increased cost I would assume that brings, with the cloud of the ground situation hanging over still.

    Ainsworth looks like a really good signing, the goal he scored against us earlier in the season was a beauty.

    But puzzled as to why Weymouth would deem him surplus to requirements though, I'm sure we'll find out in due course.

    Think the piece says it's travel related

    Where the fuck is all this money coming from? I know we released Ambroisine, but we signed McCoy in his place. I doubt Smith and Ainsworth have joined for expenses and complimentary use of the squash courts.

    Still quite a large squad available, but now only two specialist strikers. I wonder whether another one will be arriving, possibly on loan?

    We've got more loans than Barclays Bank! Methinks it's time for Gavin to sort out who he wants to play so we have a settled side rather than desperately bringing in more players. I like Gavin; I think he's done a tremendous amount for this club but we all have weaknesses and I wonder if he needs to reevaluate what he's doing and how he's handling players? We apparently have a good budget and players constantly coming and going yet we've going backwards for a while. Why does Gavin keep bringing in new players? Is he not researching them properly first? Does he not know what he wants them to do or how he wants them to play? Is he trying to fit square pegs into round holes?

    I have to say it's often looked that way to me, but it's probably much the same at many other clubs so I just look at the steady long-term progress made during the last decade. I think it's often been that way with other Hamlet managers too, but until the last few seasons most players would have been non-contract so could easily be released and replaced at any time. I'm assuming most (around 20?) members of the current squad are under contract. Also the higher stakes and higher wages now we're operating on a full-time basis mean there are greater obligations for both club and players and it's not so straightforward to sign the players you really want when you want.

    The whole full-time thing is a massive transition for everyone not least for the manager and his staff, for whom it must be a steep learning curve, and also for the club's directors who are managing all the financial and logistical aspects. I think right from the start the message from the club and team management is that it's part of a long-term project, not an attempt to fast-track the club into the National Division or Football League within some specified timeframe. Top 7 seemed to be the stated aim at the beginning of the season with top half as a minimum, and anything much less than that would be quite poor in my view so right now we're well below expectations. We probably need another 50 points from the remaining 25 league fixtures to secure a top 7 finish now, which is a tall order. Although for me the top 7 thing is just a benchmark to aim for rather than a desperate wish to be included in the lottery that is the promotion play-offs.
