You really have been bitten by the narky bug, havenít you. It was clearly a joke.

Hereís a few 😁😁😁 to help you navigate the mind field that is sarcasm 🙄🙄🙄

I am not interested in surveys on here, the Trust website, or on any site. As I have said repeatedly, canvass the members. Not some ambiguous survey. The Trust can certainly afford it. Write out and ensure all are reached.

Anyway. No point in pursuing it further. You clearly feel you have accurately gauged the mood of supporters of NTFC. Whilst myself and OTHERS disagree. So Iíll leave it to you and the rest of the Kingsley Park massive to defend us whilst we sleep..

For some reason, administrators of this site clearly have an axe to grind in regard to the Trust. Weird really as the Trust is hardly sinister. The fact that not a shovel has been raised at the Pity-us arena in 6 years since Bowers paid his quid is hardly the fault of the Trust. They must be bitter, poor blighters.

I actually believe itís the other way around. There is a reasonable spread of contributors who share a similar opinion to me. Yet it is only the site administrators who are singled out for their opinions on the Trust.


As Corporal Jones used to say. ďThey donít like it up themĒ.

To be fair 888 is a fairly healthy response number. We have an average home support of what, around just under 5k? I wonder what the total support base is including people such as myself who canít make games but watch Ifollow etc? To be honest whilst passions run high on here, I assumed we were some sub-culture in an internet backwater and the wider support base wasnít that arsed? I personally think that level of interaction shows some green shoots of potential? Not that I am any sort of marketing expert or anything?

The Trust have made an effort to reach out, perhaps the drafting could have been improved, but itís a start. I do feel a bit sorry for the Trust, they are pushed for more engagement and when they do they get a bit of a kicking? Need to be a bit careful, a more cynical observer may claim it was deliberately clumsy to invite criticism and then create a justification for not continuing with the engagement process? Iím sure thatís not the case, but it shows how things can be twisted to suit any agenda if you are so inclined. I would encourage the Trust to continue and expand on what they have done. Perhaps with a little more considered drafting and a little less confrontation collectively we may start to move forward. Whatever your thoughts on all this, for the good of the club in the long term Trust has to succeed as a representative body.

Finally I myself would like to thank Simon (GPC) for his efforts so far. After all, he is new to the role, is on a massive learning curve and has thrown himself right into the firing line from the get go, so pretty admirable as far as I am concerned. Perhaps all this discussion may just lead to something positive?

Sorry just one more observation. I have sat on numerous boards and committees over the years. Every single one of them contained individuals with a mish mash of varying opinions and motives. In all that time not once was there anything close to a undisputed unified opinion on anything despite any any final decisions publicised. Never happened, never will and I donít believe itís any different over at Trust House.

I rebuilt a long stretch of the fence that runs down one boundary of my property and am pleased to report I had a surplus of postcrete. Naturally I have donated the remainder without reward to the new east stand construction. A little goes a long way, as the parson said to the milkmaid.

Not sure if you'll be able to see this in Oz but they are talked about quite extensively in this: https://www.bt.com/sport/watch/video/clips/2021/april/watch-for-free-bt-sport-films-ours

An absolute disaster at Ebbsfleet.

It's been a while since I watched it but the gist of it was that there was an enormous amount of squabbling and in fighting on their forum over every decision. Also, the manager was in a difficult position as he was having everything dictated to him by the result of online votes (although it sounded like he was ignoring the "Pick your starting 11" vote altogether, which isn't surprising!)

It was featured on the BT sport documentary that Tel put on here, as said was an absolute disaster.
In the end the manager was just doing what he wanted regardless.

Turns out I happen to know someone who was involved at a fairly high level for a couple of years some time ago. I was going to ask them about it, perhaps I wonít.
