For the sake of argument assume the turnover of Wuss was £10m. They would then be spending £980,000 on wages and £200,000 on everything else. That is obviously away with the pixies, you simply cannot run Sixways & everything in it as well as medical, financial, insurance, etc for anything like that.

For example, if they take on average 40 people to every away game it would be a miracle if they could fly/bus, stay in hotels & eat for on average £200 per head so for 15 away games that comes to £120,000. That leaves you about £80,000 for everthing else, probably less than they spend on stock for the club shop.

After too many years looking at financial figures my first test is to ask if the big picture makes sense.
