Jim Rodwell's financial management course - Part 1

Big Jim's been talking to the press as well:

"We depend on an FA Cup run to bring money into the club"?  Nice to see he's not lost his business acumen!  A cup run is a nice bonus for a lower league club, but to 'depend' on it financially suggests the club is living beyond its means.

Would be interesting to see his budget calculations - by reaching the FA Cup 4th round, the Champions League final and winning the World Cup, they will be solvent!

In normal circumstances I'd be delighted to see County and Crawley getting this far in the cup, but because of the people involved I can't help but feel that these are the heights these clubs will reach before a massive fall.  I hope not, for the fans's sakes.
