Whats the alternative then? Surely driving out a chairman with no one to take over and hoping for the best is worst than someone who is at least maintaining the status quo? I must be missing something.
The alternative is he lowers his asking price to a sensible amount that we get an owner who is willing to invest.
There are numerous meetings with potential buyers FACT.
The fact that so many of our support are happy with the status quo is deeply worrying for the future, personally I am not happy with flirting with relegation to non league on a regular basis.

My apologies Mrs Thomas.

BedsCobb, I can assure you that I have absolutely no link to the club in any way other than being a matchday supporter when finances allow. I would appreciate it if you could refrain from implying otherwise.

My comments earlier were my opinion about the takeover situation at the time (I think we were proverbially on the edge of the cliff) and I agree with the poster who said that KT and DB saw a business opportunity and took it. No more, no less.

Also, in my opinion only of course, the next change of ownership is probably the most important in the club's history.

Must agree. The words "we've always been a fourth division club" is getting tiresome.

It is a fact that he has held meetings, the amount he is asking for (as far as I am aware) is purely fictional.
If the question was KT or [INSERT NAME] then as long as the person was suitable then I would vote for the person. When its KT or nothing then its KT. Thats what I mean by a viable alternative.
KT just no longer being in the chair with no one to replace him, or just saying 'the fans will do it' isnt for me viable.
Even though I am generally against the idea of fan owned, if a full and clear proposal was put forward then it can be reviewed, at the moment we dont have that. With the work the Trust are apparently doing, and i think Meccano might be involved then we may have a viable alternative.

Id like to see the pressure fully ramped up on him from all circles and I wholeheartedly believe that in the coming weeks it will. When people start to get an idea of the money he may well have made from the Chinese 'windfall' (Im lead to believe this is 5-7million quid and I wouldn't put that on here if I wasn't confident, albeit I have no way to back it up - lets be clear here, there is currently no trail of funds available to see. Then possibly those who 'support' his current manifesto which *appears* to be to make as much money from the land he has got hold of, with zero tangible benefit to NTFC (we can all agree there are no publicised plans), could start to feel very differently.

.
Probably just a coincidence that NTFC came under the "umbrella" of the British Virgin Islands registered company, Belle De Jour around the same time ?

if memory serves me right, when the chinese arrangement went sour, most on here were suggesting no money was ever invested, which makes your allegation that he made 5-7 million quid out of it difficult to understand (and yes i may be a tad slow, but i can't work it out).

I wouldn't say supporters are happy with the status quo. It me more like there's nothing we can do about it. I personally am not happy but you know what I have more important things to worry about that I can do something about

If KT made 5-7 million from the Chinese saga then why would he still be here!?

Indeed - quite an accusation from a member of the trust board.

I'm sure if he made 7m from land and the Chinese he would've chucked in a measly several hundred grand at tarting up the east to avoid being embarrased by his total lack of action on the football front. Grin

My guess by the name is that he has invested in a business targetting the latest craze .... "Escape Rooms".  You know the one.... where you lock a group of people in a room, and they have a fixed time to work out the clues required to open the door before they burn to death.

Either that, or it's a business designed to facilitate his Escape from the Trap that is NTFC........

Kelvin holds the keys.
He plays a similar game at Trappd Sixfields where he holds 2000 odd hostage for an entire season.

I was a lot younger, but i'm wondering just how bad things were in the McRitchie, Stonhill and Underwood days.

Those were the days fans used to protest about the running of the club, and actually call for the head of the chairman.

Said chairman was usually removed and someone else came along!

I don't remember us being "non-league"......so league position wise things could not have been any better or worse than they are now.

KT personally made up to seven million pounds from the Chinese investment?
I find that very, very difficult to believe. It defies logic on so many levels!

Happy to be proven wrong of course. At that point, my vote would irreversibly switch to 'KT should pass the club on to any credible investor, for a zero consideration'.
