Before saying the Trust are the only way forward Beds, best all the supporters think the same. Because, at the moment, alot of supporters don't think the Trust are the solution.
The penny is dropping, albeit very slowly but dropping none the less.
Speaking with members of trust  at the Saxon inn meeting, I fully believe they will get us out of this mess.
They just need the majority of support from the clubs fans and they will take the fight to Thomas.

A lot of the Trust don't think the Trust are the solution  Grin  But as they have started the ball rolling, momentum is everything. Something that I stated to them in person prior to the meeting at the park Inn. I'm assuming they have at least a cogent plan in place and are ready to launch it imminently..

At the moment, it is looking a lot like the appetite for the supporters interest in running the club was hugely overestimated. And that KT's resolve to capitalise on what he has, was hugely under estimated.

I'm not adverse to Exiles plan either. Anything would be good at the moment. Even a car boot sale  Tongue Tongue

I take the point about momentum but these things take time. My understanding is that the Park Inn meeting was held to explain to supporters what has happened elsewhere (Exeter and Portsmouth were presented as examples) and to see if there is an appetite to take things forward.  If there is the desire the first decision is whether to follow the Exeter model (100% supporter ownership + no debt) or a so-called “hybrid” which would be some kind of joint venture between the Trust and an investor partner or partners.  My impression is that the hybrid model is preferred but that the Trust would be ready to follow the Exeter precedent if necessary, e.g. DB pulled the plug and insolvency threatened. 

One thing I know is that the notion that the Trust is going to be “running the club” in the day to day sense is plain wrong in the context of some negative posts here.  Most of the Trust directors have full-time jobs elsewhere or are retired so if if ever happened a professional management team would need to be put in place.  Any buyer inherits the present staff so most people needed would already be on the payroll.  At Wycombe I think there is a legal division between the ownership of the stadium and the management of the football side of things.  This seems a sensible way to protect the assets of the club.

But my own issue is that, as KT has discovered over the past 12 months, finding an interested investor given the financial state of the club and the East Stand impasse is a serious challenge, certainly very difficult if there is any substance to rumours of the asking price.

All sarcasm and joking aside. I am as keen as anyone to see these issue resolved. But I just can’t see the two side meeting on common ground. The gulf between the Trust and the club is the biggest it’s ever been, even under DC.

With All due respect, Thomas is a spent force who should be encouraged to find an exit strategy. Hopefully There's no multi millions pot of gold for his undeserved arse, unless the council have royally f### up again!
Any Northampton supporters who encourages his prolonged stay here are destroying the club the claim to support.

Why would anyone take over at a towns sporting institution that represents a town of a quarter of a million people with the desire to strip its clubs bare of assets for personal gain? Gains that would be detrimental to a clubs future well being?
Come on folks, Thomas has no reason to be here.
There are  8 trains an hour out of castle station , he needs to get on one!
I've seen my last game at Sixfields while these lot are here but willing to pay £200 towards the trust for a season ticket for watching cobblers from the bank.
Please come and join me.

I think the only way to fully show your disdain is a full and total boycott of anything NTFC related!!
Not going to games (except any big cup games), not buying merchandise and not giving him the satisfaction of seeing how much he is frustrating you by a full and complete boycott of commenting on any forums, that will really show him!!  Evil

Blimey, is that what they are charging these days? What a rip off! For an extra £49 you get:

  • a seat
  • a roof over your head
  • a clear view of both goals
  • a guaranteed seat for any big cup games

I no longer recognise Thomas's football club to be one that represents the Town of Northampton.
For 20 years now NTFC have been used as a means to gain vast riches in land and leases, even if this is to the long term detriment of the club.
I'm  very happy to temporarily suspend my long standing affiliation to NTFC but will return as soon as it becomes apparent to me it has regained a resemblance of professional football club that has a structure in place that puts the club to the fore, one which works hard to attract new supporters, buisness partners which can  work closely with the local council.
 Also importantly Showing growth plans with realistic targets.
The one thing that needs to stop immediately is the 20 years of council badgering by those whose main interests are personal gains of lucrative land and leases, the very thing that has seriously hampered our club for 2 decades now!
See you on the Sixfields bank.😎

Fair play to you mate. I genuine mean that. At least you are doing something that I have criticised you for not undertaking in the past. Some positive action.

You never know. You might be joined by quite a few others, who up to this point haven't extended their concern any further than a keyboard or a cosy meeting in a warm room.

From a stand point of being true to your word, you have my backing.

You have high standards Beds so it could be a long wait to get what you want,
While you wait you could head along to the New Eyrie and watch the Eagles attempt another promotion push,
Friendly club, friendly fans and good chips.

Donc, si vous en croyez les rumeurs, KT a convenu de vendre le club à un consortium basé à l'étranger, mais avec un chiffre britannique. Une diligence raisonnable est-elle entreprise?

Translation of above:

So, if you believe the rumors, KT has agreed to sell the club to a consortium based abroad, but with a British figure. Is due diligence undertaken?

Season Ticket sales are up around 6% on this point last year according to the club, so they must be doing something right considering a lot of the murmuring on non-renewals both in the stands and on social media.

I have renewed mine, wonder how many of these are new customers rather than renewals?
