Mr Thomas please tell us your future plans for NTFC!

FOUR players (including our 2 most skillful) gone, ONE in!
NO development of the East Stand!
NTFC now control less land?
A cut in the playing budget this year!
You have been unable to sell the club!

What future can you provide?

If they paid 6m for 60% does that mean that at the time the club was valued at 10m?

What benefit was there for NTFC Ventures to go under the "umbrella" of Belle De Jour, when both companies have the same owners. Wouldn't be anything to do with BDJ being based in the British Virgin Islands so no vision of accounts are available ? Just a thought !

Seen a few comments from people related to the Trust suggesting something untoward is going on.

Time to let the rest of us know.

If there is a genuine concern then let us all know and we can do something.

If the Trust has genuine concerns and insight then stand up and let us all help.

You'd also see the poll result on this thread dramatically change.

That's my understanding. Any bidders will have to demonstrate the ability to fund the club for approx 4 million that should see them through to the end of next season..

Posters on here are very vocal about KT not being open and honest enough with the fans and yet some of those same posters won't be open and honest either .It's hypocritical. If the Trust know something then it's time to tell the fan base, many of which are paid up members.

You tell us that KT is hiding things from us and you allude to knowing what that is but won't tell anybody outside of the "inner circle" of the Trust board.

You tell us not to trust KT but how can we trust the Trust when they're doing exactly what they accuse KT of doing?

If the Trust want the fan base to get behind them, they need to give the fans a reason to trust them.

Time to tell us what you know.

So when Kelvin said a few months ago that the club was on a sound financial footing he was telling the truth yeah? But now we have to shave 100k off the outgoings per month to break even?

Only one of those statements can be true!

I'll be honest enough to tell you what someone who purported to be at the Trust meeting this week told me.....

We have to make immediate savings of 100,000 per month.......explains the early transfer window sales of Crooks and Van Veen, the release of Kasim and the loan of Waters.

The local consortium fronted by Brian Binley, and possibly containing David Jackson have been priced out of a deal.

There will soon be an announcement by the Trust about a public fans forum to discuss the possibility of taking the first steps towards fans becoming involved in the running of the club.


Over to the Trust to confirm or deny my claims.

Thanks GPC.

None of that is a surprise, everyone knew we had to cut the budget.

So there must be other stuff going on for the Trust to be saying stuff.

IMO the longer the chairman keeps it the more money he loses on it and will end up having to sell it cheap or pop it in to administration.

A guess we'll see what happens but one thing for sure is if we were taken over tomorrow we will be in the same position again in 6 months, we're just an unlucky club, owners come in with little interest or the ones with interest take bad advice and then lose interest and bugger off when they get in too deep.

it is pure speculation, they have even said themselves that there is no paper trail.  they may be adding 2+2 and getting 4, they may be miles off.  But surely these are the types of things that the trust should be putting in the public domain in a controlled and sensible way instead snippets on here.

If we were taken over tomorrow, plans would be put in place immediately to finish off the East stand and further plans for future extensions of the South stand in order to compete in league 1 football.
Our clubs supporters, general public and local buisneses  would rally behind these initiatives to make them a success.
Thomas in his quest for land deals played down and ignored the very thing this club has been crying out for and that is an improvement into its infrastructure.

Please tell me who these wonderful people are that would do all that you mention above?

As for the general public, you are having a laugh.

No benefit whatsoever for NTFC.  The principal reason for having a BVI company is secrecy and the place being a tax haven there is no corporation tax.  So, what goes on in BDJ will be hidden.  The present ownership structure is the complete opposite of transparency and it begs the question for the underlying reasons.  Again, 2 + 2 = Huh?Huh?

I've asked the Trust on Twitter if there is any truth in the rumours about the 5USport money and the 100k saving per month needed.

Is there a better way to contact them? I've tried e-mail before and heard nothing back.

Whilst you are at it why not ask the man himself, KT? After all, he has the the best interests of the club at heart and has always been open and transparent in his dealings with supporters. Then again..........................
