Quoted from essexexile
After the thumping we got yesterday, it's only natural that fans try & look for a reason & whether it's MJ, the players or the board that's at fault, the underlying fact is that economically we are treading water.
Unless investment increases year on year to benefit the club as a whole and the team in particular I don't see how we can survive. JF is right when he says we need more revenue streams but I also think he's holding us back by hanging on.
The club needs more investment but without either a new stadium or an investor can't see how it's going to get it.

But do you mean investment or speculation? I think what you mean is speculation because nothing is guaranteed whereas an investment implies a guaranteed return.

Hate to bring Lincoln up but they are spouting about all the direct investment that is going into them, and not just money from the cup competitions, it would be interesting to know if their chairman/directors are gifting this money or is it a loan to be paid back at a later date?

They have just appointed a new director, who will bring new expertise to the table. They are forging ahead at a rapid rate, and sadly, leaving us in their wake.

As we all know from TV ads investments can go up or down, but unless you buy a ticket you ain't gonna win the raffle & unless money is invested in GTFC we ain't gonna win anything either.
Look at the Premiership, millions are spent buying players, some of whom don't pay off but an awful lot do.

It makes you weep when you see someone with his cv WANTING to come on the Lincoln board. Imagine that at GTFC - well no we can't because it is impossible to imagine and seems to have been that way for far too long.

Of course, according to our directors there is no other investment for us out there in a similar mould. No one who could bring anything new to the party; no one who might have some expertise willingly given. No one who has black and white running through his veins who has done well for himself who wants to help his home town club. I wonder why that is?

Can someone explain to me what there actually is to “invest” in?

3 years ago no one wanted to know & I was doing crowdfunders to keep us going.
Success makes people want to be associated with the club.
It’s not easy running a football club , you are supposed to question things when it’s all rosey not when the wheels have fallen off because then it’s too late.

Sadly not solid collateral, though mine as a Town supporter are priceless and in relative terms cost me very little making new ones for an owner does not come cheap.
