Running costs are and will be the issue, For £30m we would inherit a company with debts that need to be repaid and genreally more costs than income, plus those pesky fans demanding we use our own money to sign top players each year!
Maybe we will be better off starting AFC Reading?

One gap in our collective knowledge. We know there's no local SJM2 on the horizon but what about our equivalent of the dozen high net worth individuals who collectively helped Pompey out of their enormous hole (the financial one)? Do we have a dozen Wealthy Berks to turn to if and when the time comes?
PM me if you're far better off than Forbes and slightly more willing!
