Tazzy mentioned exciting times ahead (can't quote the date, sorry).

If the recent developments don't get the turnstiles clicking come August, then surely nothing will.

There will even be new turnstiles on the way to click.  :scarf: :scarf: :scarf:

I'm wondering what form the forum will take? Will there be a set agenda so announcements of plans for the the future etc can be made,then possibly opening up to questions from the floor? :dontknow:

Wrexham fans group here wanting to tell you about our experience with Cleeve.
He appeared on the scene at a very low point for our club.The owners were absolutely despised and were looking to get out.
This brought forward a parade of chancers,scammers and fantasists amongst whom Cleeve was prominent.
His main problem was that he didnt have any money. Or at least ready money.
He offered to buy club if the owner loaned him the money to do so. When this played out he offered our Supporters Trust a deal. We gave him our 400k for a minority stake in the club and he would put in an un-named sum for majority ownership at some point in the future.
Not surprisingly this was declined.
It wasnt just the absurd offer. It was the fact that he seemed to be a man of no substance. Nothing about him seemed genuine.
His business record showed no success.
Fail land scamming business. Basically trying to sell green belt as development land.
Booze future speculations.

Football memorabilia cons. He was banned from Stamford Bridge by Bates.

He was also kicked out of UKIP.

His plans for our club were also a bit woolly.
It centred on importing and developing young African and Asian kids and then selling them on for a profit.     
It was a nonsense.

He also had an idea about selling off the pitch in squares. Not the stands around it though.
At Wrexham the ground ownership would probably have remained with the owners until he could have manufactured a development deal .
I understand that your ground is owned by the Council. If they are anything like Wrexham then that would be a worry.
His antipathy to fan involvement has been a feature of his approach. Since being bounced out of Wrexham he has utilised twitter and fans websites to rubbish the efforts of our Supporters Trust.Childish behaviour from a supposed serious businessman.
If your Trust has any funds he will be in for that in the near future.   

Its a real shame that he has attached himself to Kings Lynn. The FA do little or nothing to protect clubs from predators and even more so down the pyramid.
Join your Trust, be alert and start talking to your local council.

Good luck.
could be anyone doing this write up

Could be anyone posting as Loopy,linnet. :laughcry: :laughcry: :laughcry: :laughcry: :laughcry:

Just a question being thrown out there?  :cheers:

General Discussion / Entrance fee?
« on: May 22, 2016, 12:06:21 PM »
I think we can safely assume that the reserves entrance fee will remain the same going on what we have heard from Tazz,  but will the first team remain the same considering Setch is pulling in advertising /sponsorship?  :scarf: :scarf: :scarf:

Because as friends of the Linnets they are controlled by the club, as opposed to a supporters club they would be controlled by the supporters.  :scarf: :scarf: :scarf: :scarf: :scarf:

Sponsors evening is a great idea,now we need to get a fun day type thing arranged ,like they did not long after reformation? This will be an ideal day for people to come to the ground and look round,have the friends set out their stall and tout for members,let us see this as a season that the friends get some events organised,make use of the bar,raise some funds themselves,get the 'public involved? The management are making giant strides to get the ball moving,be nice to see the friends actually become a fans fanclub! :scarf: :scarf: :scarf: :scarf:

If he is after football a year on and a year older, been released, offering less because we won't be held to ransom.  :scarf: :scarf: :scarf:

One wonders if the cost of totally relaying the pitch will affect the team budget, or will the extra revenue from the reserves cover it,or could we see a possible price rise for all games, first and reserve?  :dontknow:
