Get real you live in Chesterfield don't you?
Oh; OK then I'll 'boycott' from London then
Good point well made.Yorkieandy wrote: ↑21 Jan 2018, 18:44Boycott means stop going to games because you don't agree with how the club is run. I used to get to 3 / 4 home games a season but now i won't go. I used to buy shirts and allsorts from the club shop whereas now i don't and basically i don't give the club any money whilst it's run by someone who won't use it for the benefit of TUFC. Doesn't matter where you live. You can boycott.
Why would i make it easier for CO by handing him money? Oh because i'm a fan doh and therefore i have to hand over money without question otherwise i'm not loyal blah blah. Ridiculous.
100% agree with all of that.forevertufc wrote: ↑21 Jan 2018, 19:00I've always held the opinion, a boycott in this instance would be counter-productive, I firmly believe it's what CO wants us to do, and gets him to his end goal a lot quicker, what would a protest do, they've reaffirmed their long term intentions for the club to prosper in that club statement, we, with good reason don't believe them, the more we protest the more their just going keep telling us their in for the long haul, mind you a protest outside Harrop house would be amusing, to see the large one get all sweaty.
A phoenix club running along side the current club is out of the question, it simply wouldn't work, we're better of right now putting all our efforts into insuring CO does not get the ground freehold, no 1 priority now, and then getting ourselves into a position for fan ownership, but then, it must be realised the club would have to start again from the bottom, as it's unlikely the trust could fund the club at it's current level, that would need to time build finances, but at least we'd have a clean fan owned club, and I believe fans would come back and support it, especially if we owned it.
I expect you'll find CO is utilising 'foward funding' structures to raise capital for the club in which our club pledge their future revenues or capital in return for cash upfront. In other words it's a business loan. CO has no intention of using his own personal money to fund the club.

I'm fairly sure the mayor can't just sell a plot of land without some kind of oversight and we've already established the council are behind the club.
