That said. Can't see many people calling for a full trust takeover but a fan stake in the club is achievable and would likely be beneficial.

Funny how Wycombe are going to be replacing us next season. We have a chairman who is an outsider and failed miserably on just about every level, except smiling and never giving a straight answer, they are run by their Trust.

Funny that

That is funny that.

But why are every club above Wycombe not fan owned?

The Trust will be more effective working outside of the Club. There is nothing or very little to be gained from the Trust having a seat on the Board.

LOL   

Should have known after all the support DC got, some people never learn.

Chairman of NtFC must have the easiest ride of any football league chairman. No passion, no ambition, happy to see the club they support stagnate and under achieve year after year .

Happy for owners to try and personally gain from outside lands whilst mothballing the club into the lowest division, oh and panic buying some crappy players to keep the idiot fans foaming at the mouth, as they have this ridiculous idea that it is only the players that make a football club.




You’re a numpty. 

Perhaps look up the definition of stagnate...  Roll Eyes

Can't see anyone saying the club should be handed to the trust.

Do I believe in Brian Lomax's belief that fans should be partners in the running of clubs? Yup unashamedly.

I think the problem is the main body of the supports view of the Trust. They see them as more likely to support the club, than the support.

That is ironic considering KT is not prepared to allow them on the board.

You could say that only a quarter of those polled think that he's doing a grand job....... Wink 

That said 85% want to keep them in charge so its a pretty comfortable vote of confidence.

It would be if that was the reason he doesn't want them on the board.

As far as I am aware, the only reason given, was that they don't hold conventional board meetings. In that.. Tey are not formal.

You would have to ask the Trust why?

Thanks, I was just interested in the justification of not allowing the Trust on the board any more.

Its just like groundhog day, only this time the trust aren't allowed anywhere near to know what's going on.
WTF reason could the council have for not letting Thomas finish the east stand, at the end of the day its their stadium he's improving.

He doesn't want to release any plans for the stand because its not his STYLE.

I would say the vote is pretty conclusive in two respects.

Firstly... An overwhelming majority are in favour of KT staying in charge (like there's a choice Grin ).

Secondly... There's a clear message to KT that even his staunchest supporters need him to at the minimum, offer some reassurance about what path we are on. And hopefully reveal a real tangible hope of progress both on and off the pitch.

It's a crucial time for the club in terms of season ticket sales. I'm KT is sensible enough to send out some nuggets of encouragement.
