Fantastic news about the training facilities, our training facilities have been pretty poor over the years so improvements there are really really significant.

"The Chairman also confirmed, once again, that the club will complete the East Stand to a good standard as part of the development and there will be protections in the final contract with West Northamptonshire Council to that that effect."

This comment is interesting. I find it very concerning that the Trust has been consistently talking about the club removing clauses (and talking about this as fact) from contracts to try and create a negative perception when in reality it was a simple heads of agreement and the contract was always going include assurances.

Anyone who has ever done any kind of deal would know that a heads of agreement isn't a final contract, the trust have behaved as though it was. This says a lot about their understanding of the situation, or worse - their deliberate intention to mislead fans into siding with them or getting angry about things they shouldn't. They should have waited for the final contract before attacking the club/owners.

Personal opinions on the various issues talked about aside, The trust not attending unjustifiable for an entity that is supposed to "represent the fans" - shame on them.

I agree with some of what you say Tom but I think you are being a tad harsh on the Trust Board.  Do we know for a fact none of the Trust Board or co-opts were there?  I'd be stunned if that was even true.  a. you surely would want to hear what's said straight from the horses mouth and b. the Trust Board is in possession of far more detail regarding this whole saga so may be better placed to challenge than an ordinary fan would.

Where I mostly think you are unfair is that the Trust absolutely should be challenging the Council and the club to ensure relevant, enforceable clauses are in place to deliver the East Stand completion as part of this deal.  That most definitely shouldn't be left until the contracts are drawn up when it may be too late.
