How the hell does the initial post which provides  information relevant to Town fans get 2 negative crosses. I'm sure it doesnt rock the world of the poster but i do wonder what is going through peoples minds when they find themselves that disgruntled over nothing. Interested to see what drivvle they post, if anything. Anyway thanks for the info and hopefully these new members will do some valuable work for the trust. Onwards and upwards.

Sorry  


In what way??


In a neat little town they all call Grimsby
Apprentice to a tradeI was bound
And many's an hour's sweet happiness
Have I spent in this neat little town.

A sad misfortune came over me
Which caused me to stray from the land
Far away from my friends and relations
Never Betrayed by the black and white band.

Her eyes they shone like diamonds
I thought her the queen of the land
And her hair hung over her shoulders
Tied up with a black and white band.

Will minutes of the meeting be available? As an exiled member living in Sheffield, I'd be interested to hear more about the following section of the AGM - "After the formal business an insight into how the Trust Directors operate and communicate was given and a discussion/update on the new ground, fans forum  and Trust comparison numbers took place."

Are there any accounts available? I mostly want to see how much cash the Trust is swimming in these days. The documents section on the Trust website is a little sparse.

I was just throwing it out there to see if any trust members/board members on here were in attendance and could summarise so it can be shared with everyone, this being a forum and all.

With reference to your query,wondering why anyone would leave negative crosses, Well a few weeks ago I received a Negative reputation score,so I sent a PM to the member that gave me it (  Fat Cobra ) asking him if I had upset him with one of my posts,He replied that I hadn't and the only reason he gives Negative scores is because he is not allowed to post on here and says this is the only way he can make himself heard. I notice that he has given a few Negative Reputations to other members. I personally don't understand his point.Perhaps the mods can take a look at this and deduct the Negative reputations he has dished out.Not sure how this works but how can he give Reputation scores when he can't post on here.

Do you really care? And will it stop you posting what you originally were going to put?

Probably scunts or gimps anyway. Probably think they get extra points on manic minor or something

Minutes of the Agm will be online in due course but there were no minutes of the informal discussion afterwards. In essence there will be a Fans Forum shortly but waiting for RH to be available so it can be broadcast to those unable to make it.

The 'rumour' about the council giving away the land at Peaks Parkway was quashed. They have to get a commercial return but some nimbys are asking why the club are been given public land. The simple answer is they aren't !!!!!

The club are meeting with the council over the transfer of the land very soon. If/when the terms are agreed the club can firm up the 'very keen' interest from the enabling developer. This is by far the closest the club have been to a new ground.

The published accounts show a loss of around 270k? ( I haven't had chance to view them yet) but promotion would bring in around £700k additional revenue. It follows that with similar gates the playing budget in league two could be increased without increasing debt. Alternatively the budget could be slightly increased and the rest used to chip away at the debt we carry ( my personal preferred choice).

The role of the Trust Directors was discussed and it was stressed that the views of the a Trust board are taken into the club boardroom not the views of the individuals.

The Trust accounts show that the income generated from the bars  represent around 2/3rds of the commitment to GTFC of £30k. This is now paid monthly over 10 maths and the Trust are up to date and still carry a reasonable balance.

There are many new initiatives which are being actioned but what the Trust needs more than anything is for non members to join. If you aren't a member perhaps you could e-mail and tell them why not!!!

I am posting this from the services 20 miles from Braintree!!!!

Are any of these trust board members fishy people ?
I understand their personal opinions don't (necessarily) reflect the views of the trust.
However it would be nice to know if any usernames on here are part of the new team.

Or send PM's even !
Your post is interesting cos he's also been sending me PM's (out of the blue & duly ignored) too.
Despite that I guess he's probably a nice enough bloke and would defend his right to dish out crosses if he is and really wants to.
Although I have noticed recently I'm not the only one getting the red crosses at will for innocent comments.
Obviously in my case I get them all the time anyway !  

Not that I really care tbh.
Just that if people disagree I wish they'd sometimes say why because they may well have something worthwhile to conribute to the discussion.
