Ah yes, the old - when you have lost the argument and have no valid counterpoints, just call them a troll - approach. Classy.

Coming from the guy with over 13000 posts your comment is laughable. You are the biggest troll on this forum.

Please apologise to the trust for accusing them of trying to con people. Moderators - that must come under libel/defamation forum rules surely?

Thanks for your message on use of Con. It was aimed at other posters! Nothing to do with the Trust. Incidentally your treatment of Cobblers78 was grossly unfair. Some of the terms you used for Beds & 78 were not worthy of somebody with your qualifications. Many of my posts are smileys ; you go round
Manchester to get to Liverpool. On a different note if you are not going on Saturday may I please borrow yr s/t for a tenner? Thks

First two words of your reply and you are making personal insults. you just can't help yourself can you?

Please confirm which definition of 'con' you meant then. because the only definition that fits the context you wrote it in is the following:

verb: con; 3rd person present: cons; past tense: conned; past participle: conned; gerund or present participle: conning

    persuade (someone) to do or believe something by lying to them.
    synonyms:   swindle, defraud, cheat, trick, fleece, dupe, deceive, rook, exploit,

noun: con; plural noun: cons

    an instance of deceiving or tricking someone.
    synonyms:   swindle, deception, trick, racket, bit of sharp practice, fraud; More

I am not sure what difference it makes whether i am a member of the trust or not. For the record i am not currently. I am also not the one that just accused them of trying to 'con' us into fan ownership either.

I prefer not to take a lecture from one who insulted Beds on regular basis. You simply cannot help yourself. Stop trolling/harassing please.
63  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: Fan Ownership on: March 07, 2019, 14:34:22 pm
I think calling it a 'con' is taking things a bit too far evers. That suggests that the trust is looking for personal gain at expense of the club/other supporters.

'Pipedream'  -maybe you are right. but is it not better to see what the options are and how they (the trust) think they can be achieved, before dismissing them outright?

Trust you to twist Ďconí to suit yr argument. I am a member of the trust and appreciate their work. Are you a member? Regarding options; without a figure head with big money itís still a pipedream and a potential misleading one at that.
64  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: Fan Ownership on: March 07, 2019, 14:22:37 pm
For those of a conspiracy theory and/or negative mindset I would respond that this is utter tripe.

I see that the Trust Chairman, Andy Roberts, is appearing on BBC Níton tonight at 6pm.  Listen and learn.

No it isnít - itís an opinion. Donít be so rude.

Any spare tkts for Sat and Tuesday. .. please?
66  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: Fan Ownership on: March 06, 2019, 22:52:01 pm
I was tempted to once again point out the flaws in this logic but then it dawned on me that the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different outcome, so I'll leave that to you!

It also struck me that basically it is 3 or 4 on here who champion the same mantra on fan ownership over and over again. In some ways we are lucky to have a chairman who sees through all this twaddle. Without significant capital any fan ownership is a pipedream or even a con as it clearly might mislead others. On another tack Beds has done well to keep up with his belief in spite of some questionable comments by some.
Frankly for me Fan Ownership is a bore and its inherents on here bore me to tears - without a 'moneyed' backer they have no chance.

A top post, that will inevitably be picked apart by the usual suspects...

Yes an interesting post as is a reasonable response from Clarkie of Milton Keynes Icerink fame!
68  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: Redevelopment Closer Than Ever? on: March 05, 2019, 09:58:00 am
Really? Go on then genius; just for once explain why you think something is a good comment? All the decision means is that the area of land concerned must now remain an integral part of the community asset. KT has already helped himself to a far larger slice of NBC's pie, so I doubt this action is liable to **** him off. It also allows the prospect for substantial development of the East Stand in future years, so how is it a bad decision?

Are you celebrating pancake day? Where you at Crewe? Lighten up Plato!
69  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: Redevelopment Closer Than Ever? on: March 05, 2019, 09:53:34 am
I donít exactly see potential buyers lining up to take the club off KTís hands and the chances of the Trust/community models being able to find the funds are pretty slim (do we actually know how much KT is looking for in terms of a takeover in any case?). Anyway, Iím already regretting contributing to this thread as it is full of politics and ulterior motives - Iím going to stick to the football side of things.

Donít be put off by the political bullies - you are entitled to your opinion so stand by it.  Itís what you preach! Good luck!

It appears that with the leases sorted that the original footprint is now back in the clubs control separate from CDNL land.

..........................Time will tell but as Iím 45 I may not still be around to see itís fruition!

Well nipper life expectancy for men is now 80 to 90yrs so you should be ok Cool

An entertaining 3-3 draw with the MK Lightning winning on penalties 2-1.

Really good atmosphere throughout, lead by the drummers in block 6. Also a healthy contingent of Panthers fans made the trip from Nottingham.

Pint of spitfire £3.60, and the ticket £18.

A really good evening out too of a really good day of sport.

Pint of Cider £2.50
Cobblers won
Good Natured and postive support of about 600
Great Sing Song by the Choral Society - mainly the 31 song.
Tkt was £15.00
Taylor played well as did JJOT.
Wife stayed at home

Of course its a moot point who enjoyed their day out Wink

72  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: Redevelopment Closer Than Ever? on: March 05, 2019, 00:03:39 am
Iím struggling to work out how pi**ing off KT is going to be beneficial to us in the long term?

Good comment
73  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: Views on Keith Curle on: March 03, 2019, 22:12:43 pm
Fat chance  Wink

 Wink I shall gleefully remind you if we do make it! Cool
74  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: Views on Keith Curle on: March 03, 2019, 21:08:56 pm
Fat chance.

.....agreed , just wishful thinking on my part Cool
75  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: Views on Keith Curle on: March 03, 2019, 20:26:34 pm
Has the expulsion of Garth and van Petulant got anything to do with it?

I would have loved to see KvV in action against Crewe yesterday - just hope we can resign him.
76  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: Crewe Alexandra (a) March 2nd on: March 03, 2019, 20:21:16 pm
Indeed. Can't remember whether it was the third or fourth goal, but he assaulted the post a couple of times with his boot!

If you are talking about ROD then many on the Bradforum have a distinctly poor opinion of him.
77  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: A bit on the Wilder side on: March 03, 2019, 19:18:21 pm
Tbf, everyone was alternating between 'Cobblers' and 'Wilder' way.
The former really isn't our way though is it!

Well the song sung during the Wilder era was " the Cobblers way".

ps I love discussions about trivia on here Wink
78  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: Fan Ownership on: March 03, 2019, 15:40:42 pm
So given everyone being transparent...

....please consider update on your ice rink foray. Any cheering or singing and did your  favs win?
79  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: Crewe Alexandra (a) March 2nd on: March 03, 2019, 15:14:58 pm
My take on the game yesterday was that the defence won us the game. I liked the way the midfield operated particularly
Turnbull and to a slightly lesser extent Foley. Foley pulled off an extraordinary tackle in front of the vocifierous support, hooking the ball away without fouling the oppo. I was surprised at the team selection with Bridges, Powell and Williams omitted and Dan Powell selected. It worked tho' with Crewe having very few clearcut chances. Hoskins distinguised himself with some chase backs and excellent tackles. Jury still out on "Soufle" but he showed some decent touches and did well to remain on the pitch until he was somewhat belatedly subbed. Probably not fit enough yet. Cornell was calm and authoritive thru' out and am amazed at the pointless criticism he attracts.
Thanks to the magnificent support who were positive thru' out (and cheerful too) it made for an enjoyable afternoon. As for their chants; I dont see the point of criticizing them be it the Ira or the 31 versions. It does bring a smile when you hear the 31 version - in fact some round me joined in! Its a pity that Cobblers78 is not on here now to tell us how many points we need to make the play offs. He was bullied off by some on here.
80  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: A bit on the Wilder side on: March 03, 2019, 14:28:21 pm
Thanks for that, I couldn't work out what they were singing apart from the '31'.
Went on a bit though...

I thought it was " playing the Cobblers way" - I did not hear Widers name mentioined. Old habits die hard!
