I think people are forgetting just how many millions Paul Caddick has put in to keep the club afloat over the years. The main reason the budget is now so tight is because Caddick is no longer willing to do that and the club has to survive on its own merits. Hetherington only operates within the parameters set by Caddick - and PC has publically stated his disillusion with the whole thing. Perhaps if someone could re-engender Caddick's enthusiasm for the club, he may be willing to turn the tap back on. But, for now, it has to pay its own way. With crowds of 1k and, frankly, dismal "entertainment" on offer that is going to be tricky if not impossible.
