I'm not surprised to hear what Stevenage have done. They are far more forward-thinking in the way they run their club.

You state one thing and then provide two examples of the opposite?
Why are you so negative ?
It's because you don't understand .........do you?

For a minute, lets take away the last 15 years when the club has been owned by land obsessed 'investors'.

Lets just say for a minute we…the fans…had raised just 125k a year by bonds etc. And 125k a year had been put aside from the playing budget. Thats million plus interest…for argument sake lets say 3.5 million.

You'd only need 500 people putting in 200quid a year each to hit 100k. Im sure 10% of our fan base would 'buy into' something that had a real 'end goal' to it.

Of course this cannot happen when the club is owned 'by investors'. Of course the big benefit of an 'investor' is that they have a big wedge of cash to bring to the party to cover financial outlays that are not budgeted for. The only problem we've had is that neither of our last two 'investors' (unless you consider the Chinese overspend) appear to have 'invested' much! KT and co (like DC before them) did bring money to the party initially though to pay bills that the fans couldn't. Or the previous owner couldn't! for different reasons!!)

Id argue that a fresh start is needed unless KT and his fellow director/s reassure the fans quickly that they have positive plans for us. And by reassurance, Id like to see actual 'plans', not opened ended answers to closed questions. Personally Ive had enough of spin now!


At 3% inflation 3.5 million will be worth about 2.2 million in 15 years time? There always seems to be a flaw in these proposals doesn’t there?

You need to know better facilities will attract more corporate sponsorship, more supporters to visit a more professional welcoming stadium spending money at the club, better players will want sign for us,  players we can sell on for profit. (Posh want £10m for our local school boy Marriot)
Better league and tv revenues are also gaureenteed when challenging in league 1..
So you need to go back to your bean counting for beginners book and fully calculate projected earnings along side loses and bad debts.

I’m not a bean counting beginner though Beds, and I’ve got the CV and track record to prove it. I’ll show you mine if you show me yours? Genuine debate, if you are going to criticise people is it too much to ask to back it up with something factual? How much over how long?
