BARRY: WE HAVE BEEN IN BUB­BLE

The Football League Paper - - LEAGUE TWO -

FOR too long, Cam­bridge have be­lieved they are a big­ger foot­ball club than they ac­tu­ally are – ac­cord­ing to owner Paul Barry.

The U’s posted losses of nearly £700,000 for the 2016-17 fi­nan­cial year and the Amer­i­can-based Barry – who took over the club in Feb­ru­ary of this year – is not im­pressed with the club’s deal­ings.

“The bud­get for 2018-19 has been worked on again and again, with nu­mer­ous cuts of over £500,000,” he said. “The last four years, it seems the foot­ball club has been liv­ing in a bub­ble. That is a bub­ble of be­liev­ing it is big­ger than it is and hav­ing as­pi­ra­tions to match.”
