The vibes i'm getting are that the Council just want shot of the land, want a bit of cash in the bank and then they can wash their hands of the whole sorry saga.....including washing their hands of the club. Nothing I have heard reference the proposed deal indicates to me that the Council are particularly bothered what happens on the pitch....certainly not to the point where it would influence any deal.

Sadly, I think you are right - I'm afraid all of us here, much as we love the club (whatever our differences) live in a bubble re the importance of the club to the wider population - sure a successful Championship club would attract more interest but the fact remains compared to the general population and the other concerns of the council we are just not that relevent and I think it's highly unlikely attractive signings in the transfer window are going to have any impact on the land deal decision.

I agree with all the above but I find it interesting that the supporters trust felt the need to link up with the council who have since then felt it necessary to reevaluate the price of the land in question.
The council are obviously prepared to listen to the trust on this point which imo still makes them impartial, itís more a case of taking advice from all sides
Just my opinion

I think you will find that it is other councillors that have asked for the re-evaluation of the land not the Trust.

We simply need to add to the squad asap. Obviously I know itís not a perfect world we live in and itís not easy to bring in the right player but the loss of ETete as stated before has looked a bigger issue week on week. We where crap first half against Crawley and only when Brady got desperate did he put on Zimba all to little to late.

I believe FG Saturday will put us to the sword on Saturday which will further highlight the need for fresh blood. The bench as it currently is with the current attacking options isnít good enough to carry us to promotion.

We have a great opportunity to get out of this league so I am just hoping the board back Brady and the recruitment team and push the boat out to give us every chance of promotion this season.

Thanks for the clarification.
Weíre the councillors bought into the trust fold only because they had a penchant for tea and biscuits or was there more to it?

Agree about Etete being a loss, but if he hadn't been recalled we wouldn't have had him for the last two games, and probably not for this weekend either.

Not sure why you express sadness at the current NTFC situation as it has not changed significantly since the Bowen era where we brought in many good strikers. Until we start an effective League 1 promotion challenge, potential significant support will not materialise. A winning side will galvanise support which it did under Wilder. You fail to acknowledge the diasterous loss of Etete which has seriously damaged our promotion challenge. I also think you have misinterpreted GPC message to suit your own somewhat negative comments. Please try and get to the FGR game and support your team.

the board will not back the team .
The budget is the budget .
The loss of Etete is one thing but the loss of the head of recruitment was another .
All these things are related .

Substitute, your style reminds me of a past poster although I can't think who! Substitute for who I wonder Grin.

Whilst reminiscing I found myself wondering what became of "good news is coming" Ted. I've probably missed something but does anyone know what became of him?

As this thread stutters along off topic I also think back to the good old days when rumours abounded from various people "in the know".

All I am reading is excuses.

We were second. We were on a brilliant run. Etete got injured and we continued our brilliant run. We had a covid break and lost a couple. Most clubs have lost players/games due to covid. We have a new player in.
Absolutely no excuse or reason for us not to recapture our form and stay at the right end of the table. The budget is clearly enough to compete. I'm sure we'll get a couple of fresh faces in.
The difference with FG is that they have a couple of strikers who have bagged 30 goals between them, neither of which you'd hardly call prolific previously. We just need one of these lower league strikers to have their purple patch with us and I'm sure it won't be anyone who generates masses of excitement when they arrive.

I am sure JB and his his significant number of fellow support staff won't be using any excuses. They've been doing a great job.

Walsall have cancelled Ash Taylor's contract and he is going to Kilmarnock. So he only lasted 1/2 a season at Walsall and their fans seem delighted that he has gone.
