In all seriousness, KT now needs to come out with the plans (whatever they are) on the assumption that HE/Chinese get what they require from the council to proceed.

'An idiots guide to their aspirations and what issues need to be overcome to achieve them' if you like.

It surely cannot be that difficult.

No body is comparing him with the chancer we had before. No body. But I do get the impression that he is using 'previous experiences from A Cobblers perspective' as a way of holding back information.

I understood that initially, but as time keeps passing and nothings happening (seemingly) he should show his cards now. Thats my stance on it. Of course the detail is probably not possible, I get that. But he could surely outline the general plans that they have




Wouldn't the lessons from the previous chairman (kind description) teach you the opposite, i.e. be as open and transparent as possible?! If there are any whiffs of complicated legal issues, no one could be accused if they voiced a few concerns, regardless of the actual circumstances.

As all good poker players know, you look for the 'tell'
From the many previous kt facebook appearances his was very much in evidence.

Especially when KTís going to be at the other end of a keyboard - itís not like weíre going to be able see him twitching or avoiding eye contact when he answers a question. More likely is that Gareth Wilshere will be sitting next to him advising him on what to disclose. I must admit that I am much more interested in on the pitch questions regarding if we have anyone lined up for the window than I am with the saga of the ground. Just a question for alistair slowe - Iím assuming that this Facebook W& a is going to make your planned face to face meeting unnecessary?

Didnít Gareth advise DC back in the day?
I remember he was part of the set up thatís currently embroiled in controversy,from memory I think he was communications officer for the club/spokesman for the DC regime.
If I was Gareth my advising days would be over and Iíd be content to go with the flow and take my wage each month!!

I wasnít casting any aspersions about Gareth - I think heís genuinely a loyal, hardworking clubman who was taken in by cardoza as much as the rest of us were.

I have no reason to doubt him and itís fair to say he wasnít complicit in any of the shenanigans,if he was he would have been one of those charged by the police in relation to the ongoing investigation.
I imagine he was interviewed regards the situation as when all said and done it would be a pretty poor police investigation if the clubs communications officer and DCs right hand man(when I met DC Gareth was present jotting down notes and putting his two penneth in) wasnít interviewed.
Iíd imagine heíd have plenty of jotted notes from the DC period and his information of what he did or didnít know and when he did or didnít know it would be vital to any investigation.
The fact he is still in a job suggests that he was just a spokesman for the club and just did as he was told.
I can say that when I met DC Gareth acted more like a right hand man than a communications officer and revelled in threats of legal action etc.
I thought he went above and beyond his job of media officer that day....

Now call me an old cynic, but I canít get past the somewhat obvious belief that this is a mere public relations excercise. As such I am afraid I am a bit bored by the prospect of it. The only possible occurrence of any interest would be if one of the contributors thinks up a question of significant gravity that the press has failed to ask and crucially KT feels inclined to actually answer it frankly. As both, especially the latter, are unlikely I canít get motivated to be involved. This is not a criticism you understand, engaging with supporters is absolutely the right thing to do and KT seems a thoroughly decent chap. It just seems a bit pointless as at the end of the day, KT will have almost certainly already revealed everything that he wants or is able to disclose.

Q - what's your favourite colour?

Q - would you rather fight a horse size duck or a hundred duck sized horses?
 
Q - would you rather have finger sized legs or leg sized fingers?

Q - When will the East Stand be finished?

Q - How much profit have you made from the sale of shares to 5USport?

Q - Pot noodles forever Chicken and Mushroom or Bombay Bad Boy?

Iíll have a go.

1 - A difficult question that whilst the answer to which remains very much subjective, needs to be throughly evaluated before a final decision could be made.

2 - Iím afraid we would need to show due diligence paying particular attention to the preset failure standards of each option before reaching any conclusions.

3 - Whilst on face value this is a simple question the consequences for getting this wrong could be catastrophic. We will be engaging the services of external bodies and consultants to ensure full and proper consideration is given to this matter.

4 - We are working tirelessly behind the scenes to move forward with this as quickly as possible. Whilst there are a number of confidential and sensitive contractual matters to resolve we should be in a position to make an announcement very soon.

5 - The investments made in the club have been made with a number of long term objectives in mind. It is also anticipated that further investments will be needed as progress is made. Therefore any profits if any will only be known once those objectives have come to fruition.

6 - A difficult one that has been at the forefront of our minds for sometime. We intend to engage someone with the relevant experience to conduct an internal review into the options available. Any conclusions will be made public following which we will give everyone an opportunity to voice opinions before any final decision is made.

Simple, Iím surprised you asked?

You didnít mention ďeducational partnershipĒ anywhere in your answers so itís not completely accurate.

May I refer the gentleman to the answer I gave in point 4. Whilst I fully understand the desire to have answers to the questions raised, there are a number of confidential and sensitive matters to address first. As such the nature of any ďpartnershipĒ can only be revealed once negotiations have been concluded. To do otherwise would be both unethical and unprofessional and could jeopardise the whole process.
