What progress has been made on each point, is what I'm guessing the original post was asking for. A 'this is what we said' 'this is what we've done' update?

5678, Andrew runs the social media so he was being genuine in asking what would people like to know.

I discounted social media from original post as it’s more public so people can see what goes on, unlike the others.

However Andrew and I will add an update on here later

Imagine if some creative fan had suggested approaching them as a tie in to our away kit....

Like they'd have gone for it!

Seriously though, this is a case of who you know. This whole campaign has been outsourced to an agency (managing Vimto) who have previously worked on Hotel Football campaigns. Found that out yesterday.

It’s exactly that attitude why we wouldn’t have got it.

As we are close to a year since the review presentation, I thought I’d look back on it and see how we were fairing

The most Pertinent slide is “fan board relations”:

Marketing Manager
Email distribution list
3-monthly meetings with board and fans
Fan Representation on the board
Reviews to continued annually
Build on social media

I wonder if the club could provide an update on when the next “5-year” plan  review is taking place, and where the 5 (not including social media) items on the above list have got to.

I’ll be emailing the same to both the board and the SLO to give them the opportunity to respond

1. Local football fans who wish they could, or have tried and failed, to invest in a local league club.

How many people have stopped watching United and City? Or wish the could invest there but can't.

Examples: Glenn Templin or the bloke at Fylde.

2. People who want to build something, have their ego stroked.

Sell the shares as a chance to go on the journey to the football league, to become giant killers again.

To be fair to Grahame Rowley and the board, they recognised that the skills and contacts required to sell the shares don’t currently exist at board level, and took the sensible decision to engage the services of a third party to operate on their behalf. Therefore, I’d be interested to know,

* Where is the glossy brochure, or ‘investor pack’, to sell the club to potential investors?

* Where are the ‘investor days, we should be holding at the club?

* Where is the social media plan to raise awareness?

* Why are we not utilising every available media opportunity at the club (of which there has been many) to talk about the shares?

* Has anything else happened to advertise the shares since the club released a 3 paragraph statement on John Laidler’s website last June?

In short, what the f**k is actually being done, proactively, by this third party to raise awareness and sell the shares? Does anyone at the club still think that the current third party is the right one to act in the best interests of the club? And, who at the club is responsible for over-seeing this to make sure they are doing everything they can to find the right investors?

I think most people recognise that making a formal offer (such as in this case) doesn’t automatically make anyone the right people to take the club forward, but the above questions are not unreasonable for the board to be answering given the lack of action and progress over the past 9 months.



I'll throw in the FCUM direct mail idea for the seventh consecutive thread.

Time for the club to start exploring new ways to seek investment.

only odd thing is why Bala would want them injured,  both seemed good signings in the summer, hasnt worked out but nice to see us make room.  Hopefully signals Densmore staying as well

Got 4 out on long term injuries.

Signed John and Lewis asked if they wanted him as they're good mates

Most of you are magnanimous in defeat yesterday. I thought it was a great advert for non-league football on a very wet New Years Day & credit to the referee for getting through the 90-odd minutes. I don't fancy the groundstaff's job now though.

I thought we wanted it more - too many of your star players didn't fancy it (were Poole & Hancock playing?) whereas in the glorious sunshine back in August you played us off the park. Goes to show that you've got to compete whatever the weather.

Nice to be able to go to an original ground, have a thousand speccies in, great atmosphere, no aggro (oh yes, you have you own topic on that) & a great game + from my perspective a good result.

You might be playing in a "tinpot league" but you'll only get out of it if you show up. Workington, Shaw Lane & Grantham will look at your result yesterday & fancy their chances.

GE


I fancy ourselves more against Shaw Lane now then ever before. Workington lost at home to a side without a win in 13.

Just another reason we need segregation. Wasn't the incident sparked by Witton fans celebrating?

No, no it wasn’t.

The incident was reported to the clubs social channels, and in a follow up conversatio

"None of those blokes said anything whatsoever to him.  A couple of them turned round to me and said they’d not spoken to him or anything, they just cheered and clapped their goal, what’s wrong with that?"

"There were some Witton fans. Harmless middle aged blokes who of course, celebrated their first goal.  He went totally mad used every name under the sun"

Sounds like Witton fans - who did celebrate every goal like a cup final today - annoyed someone, with a history of ranting.

Unless there was anything rascist said, i find it unsual a steward would try and remove someone. And if a steward used OTT force, i'm not suprised he lashed out.
