Replying to Gordon’s post.  I remember well, you and Kevin running the club shop etc. and running it as a proper supporters club should be run.  The “Friends of the Linnets” is in my view, farcical.  Hitherto it appears to have been run like a secret society.  I think supporters have now begun to realise that “investing” any money into the club is putting good money after bad.  The current owner has saddled the club with unmanageable debt.  In my view it is delusional to think that a small sum raised by a few supporters will make any difference. Using the fans as a cash cow has, I believe, failed already judging by the poor attendances of home supporters so far.  To use a phrase loved by the owner “kerching”, I think might well be exhausted- let me suggest another he might like to use “chickens coming home to roost”.

Neither!!  Can’t see it ever being repaid. Club is insolvent anyway and seems likely to go the same way as the current owner’s other past business ventures. Only my opinion of course.

Hands up anyone who really believes the current position is sustainable.  Obviously Mr Hill does - anyone else apart from the owner?  “Investing” money in the club now is putting good money after bad I fear.  Sums raised by The Friends, believe me, won’t even scratch the surface.  The current scenario has been played out many times before by others and it only ends one way.  When that will be is anyone’s guess, but in my opinion it will be sooner rather than later.  Let’s hope I’m wrong.  Not so sure that the well know phrase “every little helps” is applicable in this case. Any other views?

From HMRC guide “ To be free of VAT, a donation in addition to an admission charge must be genuinely voluntary, and advertised as such. ”

Mallard, I’m glad you’re not my financial advisor.  Your assessment and interpretation of a balance sheet is quite amazing.

Don’t know what balance sheet you’re looking at.  Deficit has increased by a further £65,000.  By any stretch of the imagination this is not a sound balance sheet!!!   Fixed assets are always questionable as invariably they are never worth what they are stated even if written down values apply unless of course it’s freehold property which obviously it’s not.  I believe the lease of the ground is not an asset of lynn fc ltd.

Mallard and Admin, I don’t 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. Wouldn’t he?

Oh Loopy, you’re full of such good ideas.  You obviously can’t 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 don’t 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 Cleeve’s latest fantasy is, to say the least, farcical.  In my view, it’s 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, it’s 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; it’s 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 that’s 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 doesn’t 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.
