OK , but you haven't given a reason why. Answer this one question, would you rather NTFC be owned by a group that put the needs of the club first and foremost or owned by  private individuals who are looking to make money out of NTFC?
PS I said "Northampton people at heart" not "from Northampton", I don't live in Northampton either.

Have you got any evidence that our owners are looking to make money from NTFC and are not placing the club's needs first?

Barton's post doesn't refer to either Kelvin Thomas or David Bower does it? To me it appears that he's posing a hypothetical question to a fellow poster.

So fan ownership is hypothetically better because hypothetically we may have a private owner who hypothetically might be taking money out of the club for some hypotherical personal benefit, when hypothetically a fan / community owned club would not face this issue?

Just want to clarify.

There are no options on the table if you don't meet the asking price.
Absolutely Hammy, however find out what you want, then work on how and if you can get it in that order. Like I said manageable chunks. If fan owned is the preferred option it wouldnt hurt to establish how much each individual would be prepared to invest in shareholding’s from £0 up to whatever their maximum budget would allow? It would be necessary to keep in mind that saying it is one thing, obviously doing it is completely another proposition. However it would also be necessary to have some sort of indicator to work with. If the figure is deemed realistic in terms of feasibility (who and how this is decided is a point of debate in itself) you move forward to the next stage, if it isn’t you don’t, simple. I say simple, the next stage in my view would be decidedly more complicated.

Interesting update here from Kelvin Thomas on various things including positive dialogue on the Trust's Community Ownership discussion. Good to see the club looking at it with an open mind. Real chance to drive the club forwards incorporating the Trust's Project Proud To Be and possibly doubly so with the board's redevelopment plans.

Are you suggesting the Trust could work in a community ownership with KT and his development plans?

KT is only a small investor and todate hasn't shown or said anything to suggest he has the want or capability or knowhow to build up a football club.
Also him having said he needs to spend more time at home the US, it might be better for him to take over at Florida alligators fc.

The statement uses the phrase "we" an awful lot.
Is "we" the Trust board ? Is is "we" the supporters the Trust represents ?

Wandering Cobbler, very good summary there. Whilst I agree that everybody is entitled to their own opinion , you are quite wide of the mark with your opening statement. A lot of people do not prefer a Club to be owned by the fans.

I would be interested TC in why you think that this might be the case?

Conversely, why are you 'sure' that it isn't?

In any case, would think that most fans would wait and make an informed decision rather than jumping the gun prematurely.
