I posted yesterday morning let’s get back to topic and you agreed.  But for your own perverse reasons less than 24 hours later you chose to criticise Barton and myself with the comment:

“I think it’s fair to say it’s time for some growing up and getting over yourselves... Pathetic. Anything to have a dig at this board or the club. Anything 🙄”

Your problem is that you constantly face both ways.  Ambivalence is your middle name.

Let’s be clear on one thing and that is your latest cheap swipe at Barton and myself namely, ’Pathetic. Anything to have a dig at this board or the club.”  I would hazard a guess that Roger and I have an aggregate of over 100 years of supporting the club through thick and thin and there has been a lot more of the latter.  In my case I was a season ticket holder at the County Ground and have been every season since Sixfields opened.  Roger is a mainstay of the Trust and has worked hard over many years as a Trust director.  All this work by him and more recently by me is to try to safeguard the club and its long term sustainability.  So, don’t take pot shots when you don’t know what you are talking about.  To give you an example of this - you jumped on the bandwagon the other day alleging in 2015 that someone from the Trust had signed over NTFC land to CDNL. I quickly demonstrated that this was simply not the case and that you were clearly wrong. 

I do not have any digs at the club I support.  Fortunately, the club is a lot more than the whoever owns the club at a particular point in time.  However, I do have significant criticism of the current owners and the previous owners.  In the case of the Cardozas it was not after the event criticism.  By the way and digressing  slightly, Insider was one of the first, if not the first, to call out the Cardozas when many regulars on this board were silent, no doubt embarrassed by their “good old Big Dave” postings.  My criticism is, as I say, of the DB/KT regime and with very good reasons as is all set out on this thread, including the still unexplained 5USport situation which has resulted in the club being burdened with £5 million of debt largely owing to an opaque offshore tax haven company and, yes, an unfinished East Stand.  In KT we trust, indeed.  I don’t think there are too many “‘Good old Kelvin” postings to be found but he has his sycophants for sure.

I have no idea why once again you have found it necessary to mount a major defence. As far as I am concerned yours and Rogers slant on this is ridiculous and totally out of proportion. I just don't understand why you feel the need to release a promotional statement every time somebody disagrees with you. Can't you just accept that people might not agree with what you say. I'm sorry, I don't think this issue is that big of a deal.

If it makes you feel better, you was right about the 2015 document.. But I clearly stated I wasn't sure and said it could have been about the loan. If you think that makes it any better for the Trust, then fair play to you.

I can't do any more than I have. I have offered to chat with Roger and Kev and try to clear this up.. But I will not allow you or the Trust insist on censorship of others opinions. Particularly not when you all freely express your own...

See, this is the sort of commentary we are sorely missing with your refusal to participate in the podcast, you should reconsider? In fairness to you though the editing was always going to show you in an unfavourable light. It’s guaranteed to sound a right load of bollox no matter how you cut that tape up. Great fun though?

Whilst of doubtful relevance just an example of what can be done - in the little town of Vevey in Switzerland (pop 18,000) they have a festival - fête des vignerons. On the town car park they started building a 20,000 all seater stadium in January - the fête is for just 3 weeks this summer and the stadium will be completely dismantled by October.

Looking at our pitiful East Stand for another season is very sad

If we finish it to the Cardoza “happy shopper” version as in the CGI’s produced it will look better unfinished.

I personally think the East Stand is looking like a modern day version of the meccano stand at the ceynty greynd. First you hate it, then you get used to it, before you know where you are you’ve grown to love it? The view from my iPhone says leave it as is, who’s with me?

A small fit out to finish the east stand, which is not the most urgent part of sixfields development and it's urgent capacity requirements to be able to trade properly  in League 1, is not closer than ever.
