L Orient -deserved winners got the right manger in place.

PO contenders
Solihull-Brute force team well organised punching above their weight likely to come straight back down if promoted.
Salford- Should have done far better with the money squandered expect a love in from the media if promoted.
Wrexham-Just shows how poor this league is their top scorer is in single figures good defence has kept them there.
AFC Fylde -Would struggle without Rowe. Half their fanbase seems to have gone back to Blackpool now.
Harrogate-good season for them will have to rip up their 3G pitch if promoted.
Eastleigh-Bankrolling coming to an end will come straight back down if promoted

Mid Table mediocrity
Ebbsfleet-May well go pop in the AGM Cup. Faiiled to pay their players yet again
Expect them to relegated next season if they survive.

Gateshead -May well go pop again. Punching well above their dwindling fan base. Expect them to relegated next season if they survive.

Sutton-Fair enough season for them. But lost their Talisman manager who even put his own money into the player budget expect them to struggle without him next season.

Barrow-excellent season for them with a manager who wants to play football

Bromley-Good enough season for them.

Barnet-Stuggled but good end of season form

Dover-Looked dead and buried early season change of manager seemed to be key

Chesterfield-May well have been relegated manager change again seemed to change form
Seem to be basket case behind the scenes

FC Halifax T-Great start with an indifferent middle of season, improved end with new strikers
season starter strikers turned out to be duds. Manager Fullarton jury is still out but deserves one season more.

Hartlepool-Should be doing better. Massive failure if you are a Pools fan

Maidenhead-Devonshire just gets enough out of his teams to survive

Boreham Wood- smallest fanbase in the division survival is their achievement

Relegated

Aldershot-from the play offs to relegation in 12 months under the same manager
could be reprieved at AGM Cup

Braintree-got promoted last season from 7th place was always going to struggle

Havant-scored quite a few goals but struggled. Shows how weak the South is.


Maidstone-Spiralled out of control. Chairman said they couldn't compete financially. But have quite a large fan base compared to the other Southern clubs.


Overall-The general standard for the last two seasons has been pretty poor with any half decent players getting picked up by league teams. Just look at Notts County who could be down here next week who have a 40 man squad. Barnet were similar last season.

After going bust in 2008 we have not lived beyond our means. We cannot compete with clubs who pay players to sit on the bench at £2000 a week.(Forest Green and Salford)to name but two.
My club has one of the smallest budgets in the league.

There was a list of budgets a couple of seasons ago
Ours was £400,000 Bromley was £1.2 million. Anyone who thinks we are bankrolled even though we have multi millionaire directors(whose financial input is not much) is sadly mistaken.
Chorley's budget was larger than ours when we met them in the play off final(confirmed by National league official when Chorley manager said he couldn't compete with us). Chorley are not one of culprits though.

Followed my team since 1967 we have always struggled financially and never had a sugar daddy mainly just well meaning local business directors.


When we were in the North Guiseley players on double wages what ours were.

Would presume the budget was upped slightly to turn pro. Find the bromley figure staggering, would presume it was not the same this season as they aint done much

Yes budget was upped but we paid for it with major price increases. £350 ST-£20 entry

Ebbsfleet budget was same as Bromley.

Next season we have major cuts to season ticket prices as this season prices affected gates
Dropped to £199 plus free to one child

When there was a meeting with the Chairman and fans it came out we are not totally full time only in name only.

No idea what budgets are this season only rumours.

4 years ago some examples

Interesting point, when is a team classed as full time? My definition of a full time football team is where the players train during the day and dont have any other jobs with playing for the club been there only job
