If they go up though, we don’t have to put up with them. Someone else’s problem. Genuinely torn. Feel similarly about Concord and Woking, mind.

I think I'd enjoy Woking getting promoted but then having a thoroughly wretched season where they lose every game and their delightful fanbase dwindles right down. I never want to go their shitty ground again or have them - and their segregation - at Champion Hill.

Really?
BILLERICAY Town boss Harry Wheeler believes too many players in his side are ‘not good enough’ after missing out on the National League South play-offs.

The bloke who got sacked then went to Maidstone and got them relegated, then went back. Why did he sign those players then? Surely Glenn must be thinking about sacking him again?

Billericay Town boss Harry Wheeler: Too many of our players are not good enough

A team that pays part of their players wages in cash to cheat the league fair play rules.

Summary - Brennan said he signed a 3 year contract. The remit was to reduce the players wage bill at the end of the season. But then they didn't have money to pay the players wages for the FA cup game against Chesterfield. Then he was told to cut costs immediately and they sold Inman & Robinson. The players were not getting paid on time. Dan Groves sacked Brennan and he never heard from Glenn who was having treatment in the US. The budget would have to be reduced next season [but looking at the Ricay website lots of the squad have been retained]. Resigned from the Kingstonian job due to a family problem.

So the Billericay financial situation was not so different from ours when you looked behind the scenes.

So the level of spending that cheated us out of the Isthmian Championship wasn't even sustainable for the short term with Tamplin still in charge. I thought theNational League was supposed to put clubs under strict scrutiny for this sort of thing? We were only awarded a conditional licence to join (since upgraded to unconditional) and Gateshead have had their licence revoked today.

We weren’t cheated out of anything....

We didn’t win in 6 games between January and March in winnable games, Billericay were not to blame for that.. :rolleyes:

Well, if you think the way Billericay have gone about chasing success by spending ridiculous amounts of money, even though it's clearly unsustainable, is acceptable then fine. Personally I don't, it's a form cheating in my eyes.

I agree to an extent, but equally if Billericay had a sustainable budget that wasn't supplied by highly dubious activities by a criminal, then maybe they wouldn't have had a squad capable of clocking up more points than we did.

We got enough points (95) to win the Championship. Dorking got 93 points and won it by 22 points this year. Havant won it with 94 points in 2016/17. Billericay have been paying half the player wages in cash to cheat the league financial rules. I too don't think that was fair.

Reference Whitehawk and Hornchurch btw.

Archie Tamplin played the second half for Billericay at the weekend, are we at the stage where the owner is instructing the manager to play his own son?

That’s not exactly unprecedented in non league football, and if it was at the weekend then that would have been a charity game.
