I see for circa £3k per person, they are organising a trip to the midlands from China to see cars and football around the 21st Feb 2018. Possibly taking in the Oxalona match.

You don't fancy putting in for the Assistant Chairman's position they are advertising for then!

Have the Trust found out anything more about our owners/investors than those of us on here?

No but I dare say a delegation led by roger will be on the first plane to China for forthright discussions regards the current situation and will be reporting back to us upon their return Roll Eyes Grin

Its time for the club to come out and be more transparent about who the Fu#k really owns us. KT is a front man for somebody, The Chinese are also a dodgy sounded mob and who probably already owns a football club elsewhere but front it out with 5Usport as a company name..

I am getting very concerned that there doesn't seem to be any direction to the club now. we are in the sh;t league wise and a few £ chucked at it wont do a jot.

I can see NTFC go to the wall in the not to distant future if this is not addressed.

Happy New Year Cobblers!

Not really, no. When they first took over the Trust invited the Chinese owners to come to an Open Forum or meeting, but we were told that their English wasn't too great.

I'm going to push for us to extend that invite once again when we meet again soon.

Thanks for the update, maybe KT can shed some light on who they really are if that is the case.

Although as much as I like KT, I am starting to wonder if he actually wants anyone to know what is going on at the club regarding the Chinese.

There are people called translators and you would think the first thing 5USport would do was employ one. It makes you wonder how they communicate with KT.  In other words, there is no valid excuse for not responding positively to the Trust's invitation.

The longer the silence and the evasion of the Trust and supporters generally the more nagging become the doubts.  If nothing can be found out about our owners then that in itself raises questions. I doubt that the same applies to most other Chinese companies allowed to carry on business outside of China. I know you need Chinese Government approval to do this.

Interesting posts, but I would suggest that on a £3K trip to the UK for a tour of a few cars a footie match its not exactly going to make much money for 5USPORT. They are not likely to fill a A380 from Guangzhou to Heathrow on China Southern, be lucky if they sell 20. The dates are just after the end of Chinese New Year, so for taking holidays, not many can do this..

Unless they are bringing over additional potential investors and/or are selling shares to small investors back in China.

Having worked in China on and off for the last 15 years, I know they dont give money away without an end goal for a large return.


When this investment was first announced I was in China and had some local friends check them out online, other that the web pages you see online, there is nothing else on any of the other Chinese social media like weibo wechat and QQ.

I just dont see what the interest in us is..

Hope to be proved wrong and this is our lowest point this season, new faces come in and we move up the table to safety, building for a play off push next season.

All very concerning.. my view is that there is money available but itís coming from another source, my guess is that the people behind this own another club in the uk which I believe you canít have an interest in another abit like Everton...

All very dodgy and this just somes up why I am massively falling out of love with the club and football in general.
