I think most Thai teams are privately funded, some by sponsors, some by wealthy owners and some by politicians who have suddenly discovered football as a way of courting popularity...I'm sorry, as a way of giving back to the electorate.

'Funds available' is a bit ambiguous. Is the figure the transfer budget?
wages, travel expenses, tips (!)
in 8indonesia it refers to the budget they get from the local govt and is supposed to cover everything for the season

the same in thai i guess but there i'm not so sure of the sources in all cases
@anthony = i think its included the amount of the money corrupted by the club management LOL .. oh yeah good job on your today article and Solo FC australian macedonian's player interview..
thanks pw...hopefully some more interviews on the way
