I was fortunate enough to miss the first half thanks to my own disorganisation, but it sounds like our team didn't turn up either. This was our most humiliating defeat for several seasons and I'm not quite sure where it came from. Wednesday night's defeat at Grays was deflating, but that's an awkward sort of fixture against a fairly tough Premier Division side. Yesterday we were beaten at home by three goals by a lower division team, and Worthing didn't appear to be flattered by their margin of victory. I don't recall us having a really good attempt at goal during the second half, the highlight of which was a superb solo goal by a Worthing player weaving past a series of ineffectual challenges before shooting inside the far post from a narrow angle.

Carew & James were missing, which didn't help, along with Clunis, Lodge and Ottaway, but we fielded our strongest back four. Pinnock limped off a few minutes after being clattered by an unacceptably late challenge, while youngster Shaun McCoulsky showed a few nice touches on his first team debut.

The players were kept in the dressing room until around 6.15pm after the match and I suspect we will see some changes in personnel over the next couple of weeks. We had a similar episode around this stage two seasons ago, with injuries, regular players losing form, cup exits at Romford and Arlesey plus back-to-back league defeatss at Corinthian Casuals and Maidstone and emerged as champions at the end of April, so it will be interesting to see what happens next.

Team (4-2-3-1): Echepare - Kamara, Forbes(c), Pinnock, Gonsalves - I.Mansaray, Samuels - A.Mansaray, McDonald, Vidal - Hamici.
Subs used: Hibbert, Boyle, McCoulsky.
Attendance: 489

Its such a frustrating situation. Our budget is relatively tiny compared to the bigger clubs and consequently in order to attract good players we have to pay the market rate. Therefore we have a very small squad and we make up the rest of it with Academy players. Carew, Clunis, James, Lodge and Ottaway are huge losses and are irreplaceable. We have a starting X1 that can compete with the best in this league but when you lose half of it with nothing to fall back on then you can expect some poor results. I'm not sure what changes Gav can make unless he loses patience with some of the players on the injury list, gets rid of them and brings in some new faces. Unless he feels Kamara and McDonald aren't cutting the mustard?

Have to agree with Linesman Ian. I'd add Kingstonian to that 'money' list with Margate and Maidstone, especially after I know roughly what Tommy Kavanagh gets paid there! All the same, I know what the playing budget is at DHFC and gone are the days where we paid £30-50 a week for a player. While i dont know exactly what certain players are on, our budget must be being spent somewhere and so at the minute, I'm not seeing a lot of value for money. Theres some experienced players in the squad now who wont be on bad money and currently they aint performing well enough. Either under-performing, experienced players need to be released to free up some budget or we're generally paying too much for some of the players.

Sorry for butting in, but our (K's) budget is not even in the same ballpark as Margate and Maidstone's, who are paying top Conference South wages (and in Margate's case, Conference National wages).

I would be astonished if you had a small budget compared to the average in the league - if you do where on earth is all the gate money going?!

No fair point. What I was trying to say is that while youre not paying the same as the likes of Margate and Maidstone you still have a budget thats far more substantial than ours.

Everybody always looks at income without looking at outgoings. If we play once every 2 weeks at home then effectively that income has to cover 2 weeks wages for players (plus coach hire for an away game) if the ancillary income doesn't cover any shortfall (gym, car wash, bar etc). The site gets charged a fortune in business rates because of the size of the buildings (3 floors)and the utilities are large. There is almost certainly a loss on Fisher every time they play because our owners recognise the need to help them survive so they can return home to Bermondsey. The business has to "wash its face" as there isn't a team of rich individuals who can make up any shortfall.

I would imagine our budget is fairly typical of the clubs that finished in the top ten last season. Maybe Lowestoft (and possibly Hornchurch, given how they gaumped us for Stefan Payne) apart from Hendon I doubt anyone was paying a lot less than anyone else.

Margate are obviously paying silly money; Maidstone may be paying more than us, and why wouldn't they be able to afford to given the size of their crowds and modern facilities?

I wouldn't have thought Kingstonian's budget is a lot different to ours. I don't reckon money had anything to do with the Tommy Kavanagh transfer saga, I reckon he simply backed the wrong horse in thinking we were a better bet for promotion (as we were top when he joined us while K's were dropping and looking likely to miss the play offs) then during the summer he probably realised he was happier there in the first place.

I sick of hearing people playing the "poverty card", and being so close to central London we can surely pick up local players like Carew & Forbes for a fair bit less than Margate have to pay for London-based players, regardless of whether or not they have almost limitless funding.
