General Discussion / Re: Trust

Mallard and Admin, I donít think this thread should be pulled.  I think even Loopy would understand that naming names with no evidence could lead to a lot of trouble for him.  My suggestion was made tongue in cheek, surely even he would realise that. Wouldnít he?

Oh Loopy, youíre full of such good ideas.  You obviously canít understand the difference between having a say and having control.  As you are so blinkered, I hope you have already pledged your £300 or perhaps you have given even more.  I would imagine you must have, given your infatuation with Mr Cleeve.  Regarding your glib statement regarding Trust members, obviously you must have facts to back this up so why donít you name names.  I think the one thing fans need now is to face reality, the current situation as we are lead to believe, is beyond redemption.  Getting fans to buy into Cleeveís latest fantasy is, to say the least, farcical.  In my view, itís throwing good money after bad and it is doomed to fail.  One final point Loopy, who gives you the opportunity to spew your ill-thought verbal trash, why, itís the Trust. The very Trust that you hate so much.

I am a Trust member and have been since its inception.  The purpose of the Trust is absolutely clear; itís to enable supporters to have a share and hence a say in the running of the club.  The current owner has also made it abundantly clear that he wants to be sole owner so why would he expect any funds from the Trust.  Why would the owner expect the Trust to just hand over funds under any circumstances whether foreseen  or otherwise.  And as for lending the money, well thatís a joke. We know nothing of the true financial position of the club.  The owners tarnished reputation particularly of his ban on being a director and his ownership of a hotel that went into receivership with a considerable deficit, would leave any lender extremely hesitant to make a loan.  The owner is soon out with the begging bowl and seems bemused when he doesnít get the support he expects and just like his previous attempts, I think his latest ruse will also fail.  No, Mr Cleeve, you want to go it alone and as far as I am concerned go it alone you must.

We donít want everyone buying on line as it means there would be a queue of those with online tickets to get in!!!! I like it now where you can just arrive and more or less walk straight in. It is not true that all clubs use plastic glasses.

 Plastic glasses and queue to get served!!!  Glasses and more staff needed.  When this is addressed, then maybe more, including myself, will use the bar.

Gris, why donít you just buy a season ticket? Cleeve has posted on Facebook saying a much increased uptake and he says it works out at only 80p per game more than last season.  Surely even you canít moan at this; can you?

Or do both, pay more and of course contribute to the ground development fund.

I agree with Blue Moon and Sworn 2 Secrets.  Personally I wouldnít object to an additional £2 or £3 on the ticket price to help with the ground improvements.  As Sworn says, Trustís funds cannot be spent on anything other than a share of the ownership of the club.  Raising separate designated funds for ground improvements as the Trust are doing is the best way to help the club.

You could link it to the number of tin cans brought to each game.  Anyone else got ideas for a loyalty scheme based on the tin can project?  Just let Gris know.

Gris, just because yours are the only suggestions it doesnít make them viable or acceptable.  Anyone can come up with glib suggestions which in my view is exactly what you appear to have done. I might be wrong, you might well have detailed plans, costings, viability and feasibility studies all prepared together with projected revenue returns so you can present this to Cleeve for him to consider. I wonder how you classify the ďmentalityĒ reference in your post.  It is not a state of mentality it is a matter of fact. No one is insisting or forcing you spend your money in any particular way, the choice is yours. Moaning about admission charges or the cost of drinks and food within the ground is not getting you anywhere and whatever you say or do is not going to change it.  Just give it a rest.

Why on earth would I have a problem with you Gris.  I couldnít care less who you are or what you do and I only comment on what you post on here.  Where I live is irrelevant. Youíre always moaning about costs and itís about time you gave it a rest.  If you donít like it then no one is compelling you to spend on something you think overpriced.  Some people like you might well cease their support, thatís to be expected, but if the club does well, then in my view the gate will increase.  Success costs money and unless supporters pay for it then we are going nowhere. Relying solely on sponsors and hair-brained ill thought-out fund raising schemes is for fantasists.

Very fair pricing structure.  Thought it might have been higher so good on Cleeve.  Maybe heís relying on Gris pulling his finger out and getting some of his fund raising schemes up and running.  Iím really looking forward to the tin can collection, that should be a real winner.  Itíll be interesting to see what Cleeve does with all the money Gris has said it will bring.  Supposedly ďa nice little earnerĒ, little being the operative word.
