on our way
We're on our way
To the conference
We're on our way

How do we get there
Through bloody inept management of a football club that's how

How about supporters control a club playing a division above us (potentially 2). To say nothing of the Bundesliga, Barca, Real Madrid.

mmm...great comparsons there..... European giants who have decades of success behind them and have  fanbases 10x our own attending every week plus many more globally....never mind they arent competing in a domestic League system completely dominated by the financial clout of the Premier League and multi billionaire foreign ownership.
Barca have so much of the TV revenue they will never be anything but succesful and largely dominant.

Fan ownership has yet to be proven as succesful and sustainable at a level we would all like to be playing at, either League 2 or League 1 level.

Great idea...not practicable in reality.

To be successful the fans need to be able to raise the cash to be able to buy out Fenty and buy enough shares. £2-3million should do it. Then you need to be able to cover the loans and have a working capital to run the club  every year.

Our trust cannot get fans to come to a meeting to discuss the running of the trust.

Daft idea.

Hellfire, Moosey - you can't say sensible things like that on here!

We have fan ownership now. One fan with a lot of money, or a lot of fans with a little money- which one is the better option? Suppose we'll never know unless it's tried. I think a mix of the two could be a way forward.

As we are all for Fenty moving on and the Allan's at 'Ull wanting to sell, how about they sell over there and take over here, I honestly think that would be "out of the frying pan and into the fire".
