On the one hand it could be astute strategic and financial business.
 On the other it could be an act of bravado by the Chairman, designed to keep the faithful on board,
and a two fingered salute to his detractors, and a certain Arsenal season ticket holder.  :dontknow:

Nice gesture from Paul Lambert at Ipswich to try to keep others in a job.

 :clap:  :clap:   :clap:
It is a nice gesture but he can obviously afford to do it.

I would think most people only give what they can afford.  :banghead;

Far to sensible For your own good Captain. Certainly has been the usual hysteria. Even Trust funders are apparently at it. People who have been there from the start. They of all people should know the Trust cant just give its money away for no return. Whatever the circumstances. Tis a shame there's no football, the Chairmans notes would certainly be interesting.

When I find myself in times of trouble, Mother Mary comes to me
Speaking words of wisdom, Blame the Trust.

Seriously though, whenever there's trouble at mill, it seems to fuel an anti Trust campaign.
Is this just a smoke screen? to divert attention, only the instigators will know.  But it seems to much of
a coincidence to me.

Owed."

I too read that somewhere last night. But tonight it seems to have disappeared. Hmm dirty tricks dept?
"I too read that somewhere last night. But tonight it seems to have disappeared."  Comedy gold Marcus!  :laughcry: :laughcry: :laughcry:
A reliable source informs me that the original reference was on the club website at some point so I apologise for doubting the integrity of the person who made the original post: Mallard and also Marcus.
I still don't think that you can assume that players can necessarily afford to take a pay cut, however: life ain't that simple.

No apology needed Stan.  Perhaps somebody posted the comments in haste, and someone else pointed out the error of their ways. Who knows.  :dontknow:

How much of a circle can this carry on going round? Has anyone actually emailed the trust to see what their position is,or emailed the club? :dontknow:

Old Loopy was a lot better than Stan. :laughcry: Grissles.

Still here Loopy keeping an eye on things.  With a good understanding on supporter owned clubs and sensible sustainable club management.  :cheers:

" if you're not with us you're against us type of thinking and arguments"

Stan, that has been the ideology of this clubs owners since its formation, Not the Trust. Both have been more than happy to be one man bands. Which you no doubt know.

Stan, slowly but surely you are getting there and now hopefully you see why I am so against the single benefactor model, although something tells me that you might have drawn a different conclusion.  If SC decided he no longer wanted the hassle of running the club he would be left with either getting what he could by selling it (if a buyer could be found) or by winding up the company to reduce any further losses.  I am sorry to say but with the sums involved on the directors loan accounts the Trust would have very little it could do to influence that decision one way or the other.
I'm glad that you think that I am getting there Tony: finance is not really my area. Here's another question for you?
If the trust were able to use their funds to support the club at the present time with what is basically a severe cash flow problem and the deal was some shares perhaps, it appears that, if your view is typical, that the trust would have nothing to do with it because of the current indebtedness to the chairman? So, while these loans exist, the trust will not really have anything to do with the club and because these loans will only ever go away if the club becomes either so profitable that it can afford to clear them or the chairman writes them off or the company goes into liquidation and the first two options are unlikely, the trust's likely course of action is to do nothing and wait for the club to go bust?

No use throwing good money after bad Stan.  If the Trust was to buy, say 25% of the club. Then it would be liable for 25% of the debts. Absolute madness and unsustainable. Use the Barrow Trust as an example.

Point taken Mallard. Perhaps the missing text could be put back in place for future reference.  It said a lot more than my comments.

I also think this stuff about the players not offering to cut their wages is a deliberate attempt to deter fans from making donations because if fans don't think the players are doing their bit then they are less likely to make donations themselves.
Why would anyone would deter the hand that feeds you ...no club no play no pay   :dontknow:
Who steps in to run the club if it fails in its current form?

Wouldn't be the Trust.  They have no where enough reserves to take on the Club debts. Its a no-brainer Stan.  :countingmoney:

Looks like the anti Trust drivel that was here in Stanley's post earlier has disappeared. Shame that. It showed what a clueless individual he appears to be.
Unless of course he could show his working out. He could still get half a mark, even though the answer was wrong.  :laughcry:

Having to answering your own questions now Grissles.  Bad times indeed. Your followers must all be in isolation.

Have to agree with B&G on this one. Option 3 the fairest.  You can't relegate sides with approx. 10 games each left to play.
