I think that will always be the case while the land issue is still there.
Club or land?
What are they here for?

You canít blame anyone for being pessimistic after our recent history.

If we hadnít got the bloody land at least weíd know any perspective owners were here with the club at heart.

True but the sad reality is without that land currently the prospective owner list is Beds with his (yet to materialize) local consortium or Random with his £1.

Something has got to happen at this club before itís too late .
The chairman has lost interest , the manager is asking the players to play for the badge which to me is a desperation statement , and the talk is of someone taking us over that has no interest in football .
Worrying.
If we lose on Saturday , it could turn poisonous

Very true and yours (and indeed mine) ideal owner is in very short supply so we have to deal with cards we are dealt.

Still at least there is a possibility of something better but I suspect you and Random will only be giving any new guy limited time before the accusations start.
small amounts of sustainable growth is what we need as a minimum in order to play outside division 4, thats all I've ever demanded of the previous and present incumbents, of which neither did jack.

The previous one was never going to do it. I stated that from the day I met him and his father. As much as you might not like the current one, I still have a sneaking admiration for him. He took us on when (no matter what you say)nobody else was interested. He has battled to make the club a viable option to purchase, which Iím still confident we will see some return from soon.

I donít mind him making a few quid if it benefits us in the long run.

Nice to see KT make a statement on the state of the club.
Can see why no work is/can take place on the East Stand until takeover/investment is completed. As I asked on another thread, any chance the Trust can pass on the details of the plans for the East Stand to the fans ?
Also nice to see, contrary to some peoples opinions,
 there is a queue of people looking to buy/invest in the Club.

This came up last time Kelvin said the Trust had seen the 'plans' - it's a very vague term.

While I was still a board member, it was my understanding that a couple of members of the Trust board who met with Kelvin for an update had seen a map of the land leases, which were subsequently made public in the Northampton Borough Council papers when they discussed the lease transfer to CDNL. The Trust hadn't seen any DESIGNS for the stand.

I can't say if that remains the case as I left the board at the end of May. My hunch is that the lease plans are what Kelvin is referring to, but maybe you could contact the Trust to verify if they have seen any designs or artist's impressions of the East Stand and the surrounding land.

Had there been any detailed drawings or even an artists impression of the proposed E/S redev, I sure he would've waved it at us like a flag.

Exactly how are we going to benefit from KT removing any land from us and leaving us with a crap squad with inflated wages with no / little improvements to the ground and lip service paid to everything else?

How is that any different to if he had not got involved and local people had taken over and dealt with NBC over the land?

Itís no different
Itís just who ends up with the land
Thatís what the past decade or more has been all about.
Thatís how I see it anyway
Thatís why I became thoroughly dejected with the whole club and
Thatís why I didnít renew my season ticket of twenty odd years.

Unfortunately it looks like the merry go round will be off for another spin and I canít see myself renewing my season ticket any time soon.

Come on Nigel. Fight fair. There were local people. I bloody know one of them, and fairly well. They moved aside to let KT take over because he was 'better funded'.

Ownership, and who invests what, is none of our business.

Let's just enjoy the knowledge that folk that already have big money make even more from you paying your hard-earned dosh to buy an over-priced ticket to sit in a morgue to watch a pretence that doesn't even bother to masquerade as **** football.

If you really loved true football, you would demand a revolution, and start again on new, co-operative principals.  League level is then irrelevant.

Perhaps, the reason why this site is populated by c***s is exactly this up-your-arrrs acceptance that money talks.  You all aspire to be "Mr.Big-Dosh". 

You sad butterstards.

F@ck you all!

Any minute, now, expect the "Wages not being paid" quote.....

And, then, think......  When was the last time you didn't get your dosh on time?  And, how did you feel - really, honestly?Huh???
