I wonder how many will attend the meeting on Sunday, 200-250? I may struggle to get there in time. Pity it isn't a bit later in the day. Bang on Sunday lunchtime will probably put a few off going (I'm being serious).

What on earth are you on about? With an 'administrator' making comments like that, no wonder this board attracts a lot of rude folk.

I see from the leaflet posted on Twitter that they would want to dictate the tactics the club used? Also, the attributes they want in the players the club signs, well, every club in the world wants them don't they?

Looking on Twitter bits of the presentation seem to have gone viral - and not in a good way.

It’s got meccano’s fingerprints all over it - you’d like to think the trust had some kind of a say and didn’t just regurgitate it.

Honestly I like the ambition, but it does come across as naive and idealistic in the extreme.

There's too much volatility in the lower leagues to be able to implement any overriding philosophy. If you manage to play anything resembling attractive successful football, all momentum is lost as the players/manager quickly get poached by bigger clubs.

Would definitely like to see investment in the facilities though. If you have a solid infrastructure, it at least sets the club up to get the very best of whoever we have at the time. Unfortunately also requires millions of pounds so is equally unlikely.

The only significant factor that drives sustained progression up the pyramid is the size of the playing budget. So without a wealthy benefactor, the club will intermittent spells of good and bad period, but will ultimately largely stay around the level we always have. Same every other club of out stature, and I don't think any long term vision without investment can change that.

What I'd most want from fan ownership is a commitment to off the field matters. Anything that could improve the matchday experience, or engage the wider community with the club.

That is the document that was handed out to all attendees today.
It was posted on Twitter by Neil from the podcast who went to the meeting.

Well, aside from that flyer being a farcical load of old toss, what actually happened at the meeting earlier? Did anyone go? I just came on here after a busy afternoon fixing the rabbit hutch expecting it to be abuzz with the exciting takeover plans but there's next to nothing?!?!

There was alot of fans at the game that only heard about the project yesterday, let alone the meeting today. This could lead to an apathy of 'why is it me that's always the last to know anything'.

Having just read the leaflet, I am even more convinced that fan ownership is not to be pursued.
 Quite disturbing that some people think that is the way forward, frightening really.
