Utter mismanagement, in any other business you’d be down the road for gross misconduct.

The failure to act when it should have happened (week of Oxford City and Accrington) has proven to be very costly .

Does look like he is turning into a very poor Chairman, not sure how that sits with the owners of the Club, or if they really care how bad his appointments have been.

I dont think they care as long as we retain league status.
I dont think there was a plan to bring a new manager in when Curle got sacked. They were hoping Brady could do enough to keep us in the battle to avoid relegation and improve the style of football played with all eyes on next years season ticket sales. After today I 5hink they might now be forced to appoint a new manager and the club is going to build up 3ven more debt as a result of that with whoever's appointed wanting his own staff and players at a time we can least afford it.
I fear for the clubs future right now.

He's been silent since sacking KC...

Absolutely no updates about the managerial situation whatsoever...not even had the decency to have a conversation with Brady!

Would not be surprised if he put us into administration now that relegation is almost a certainty...

Eagerly await the season ticket loyalty reward email which will be dropping into my inbox shortly!

He’s in a real spot now. He must have been praying for a win over the last 5 games. Like I said previously, there is no way he can appoint Brady during this continued run, he’d look even more stupid. He either does
nothing (i.e as of now) or dusts off the chequebook to roll the dice again. Having said that, if he does nothing the dissenting voices will grow louder by the week.
It’s a proper mess for him....created by him.
The sad thing is the results couldn’t have been much worse if he hadn’t sacked KC.

We’ve probably got to get 22-24 points from 15 games. Big Sam would struggle to do that.
Maybe time to let it roll and recruit at the end of the season now with a big broom.
Those ST offers need to be strong!  Tongue

Agree with this. Our position is similar to the current England cricket team being set 500 to win in three days on a dodgy Indian wicket taking spin.

Time for a cheeky low bid to prise the club away from the current owners with the understanding that the debt owed to them is written off and removed from the Balance Sheet.

To put that into perspective, we've won one of our last 16 league games, and now we need 6 or 7 wins from out next 15.

We've played the majority of the teams around us, and games against the better sides to come.

Yes, as I said, nothing since that initial update after sacking KC!

People slag off the boro chaiman, but at least he keeps the lifeblood of the club updated constantly...

So where do we start
1. Big mistake giving KC a 2 year contract last summer, OK he got us up through more luck than judgement but last season was pretty much sh*t apart from 5 or 6 games, so it was bound to be a bit of a struggle and struggling managers usually get sacked.
2. We had a £1.75M windfall with the sale of Goode and last seasons FA Cup money but decided not to invest any of it in the team.
3. Despite several dire performances we stuck with KC during the January transfer window, where apart from Kioso, the signings were underwhelming.
4. KC was only sacked when it was blatantly obvious that ST sales would fall through the floor if he remained in position and KT hoped that Brady might be able to get something that didn't exist, out of the poorly assembled squad.
5. KT has no interest whatsoever in the fans of NTFC, the fans won't make money, the land will and that's the only reason he's here.
6. I think we have a "Yes" sir attitude at with most of the senior staff agreeing with what ever comes out from the men at the top, even when they know it's wrong, no one questions anything. I do realise that KT pays their wages but sometimes you have to grow a pair.
 Seems like it was the same with the players as Ricky Holmes found out.
7. Some fans still think that KT is our saviour, we are allegedly losing £3M when our playing budget is in the region of £1.2 - £1.5M, where is the other £1.5M going? Not to mention the Football League money and the very near £1M from ST sales also coming in.

Let's admit it, happy clappers excluded. Thomas has been a disaster from day one and was never here for the benefit of the club.
I was there at the meeting when he promised £4 million was "ringfenced" for the stand redevelopment and I don't think much has happened in that department, so I would suggest he was possibly lying, allegedly.

I thought the Trust were interested in buying at the right price. Anyone can bid.

1) Probably too worried that someone might come in an poach Curle following promotion so offered him the two years...perhaps there was actual interest from someone else so he tied him down to that contract because it was the easy thing to do.
2) Seems to forget the Goode money and the FA Cup run money when he goes on about the debt.
3) Claims that he waited too long last time to get rid of a manager so this time he went early.....really? He went far too late in my view, the writing had been on the wall for a couple of months before. Then we all got over excited by a 0-0 draw with Accrington!
4) Agree with that
5) I'm sure he's as interested in us as he was with Torquay and Oxford before us......
6)  Agree with that too..... thats where KT's "right kind of players" came in.....those who just shut up and toed the party line.
7) He may have headed the consortium that bought the club in 2015 and that paid the immediate debt to the taxman to avoid us being wound up.....but its now 2021, and the progress on and off the field has been negligible under his watch. We are losing money hand over fist (he says) and by the end of this year the debt to Bower/him/Ventures/Belle de Jour will be in the region of £9m. That right there is the reason there have been no takers for either buying the club or any outside parties putting in some investment.

He never has (had to) answered for the Chinese debacle....did they sell 60% of the club or did they sell 100% of the club, did the money change hands, did the full amount paid by the Chinese get returned to the Chinese when the deal went belly up 9 months later? Why did the losses from that (the Hasselbaink wage and transfer splurge) get covered and hidden on a balance sheet somewhere in the British Virgin Islands?

There will be no deal with the Council, there will be no new/finished stand, and there will be hard times ahead for the club....its about time people realised this and stopped with the quite frankly pathetic "Thomas saved the club" mantra.
