Quoted from Helgy
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.





Want to do a motivational speech to our director(s)?....think with that post they could learn a thing or 3 off you!!...
Fair play to you but it's going to be about keeping that investment and interest as or when your bubble bursts...it may never happen but as you say, you've keep your eye on the ball at all times, blink at the wrong time and all the positivity goes up in dust and you'll be back crowdfunding..

Quoted from essexexile


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.




But they are bought by the input that the Premiersh*t gets from televised matches. They have the money to speculate in those players without it coming out of the Directors / clubs income stream ( if you don't count that money as an income stream but a yearly bonus ).

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


Football fortune  


Supporting the Mighty Mariners for over 30 years, home town club is were the heart and soul is and it's great to be a part of it.

Quoted from ginnywings


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.

Christ, I find this endlessly more depressing than any other thing Lincoln have done better than us since returning to the Football League. How we're crying out for someone at the club with that sort of expertise, and it'll never happen while Fenty and his massive ego (and "benign" loans) are still hanging around.

Hmmm. Not too sure a product marketing manager who has worked at companies which produced goods will exactly be an expert on the operations of a small/middling football outfit.

That said, impressive business chops if he is going to get involved in the running of the club so you'd expect he'll be able to do something there - just as long as they have success on the pitch.

Our board massively fails at understanding who our supporters are, why they support the club, and how they can draw more people who currently spend their Saturday afternoons doing other stuff through the turnstiles (i.e. what GTFC's actual 'product' is). Anyone with some basic marketing knowledge can figure out where they're going wrong and set them on a path towards proactively selling the club to a wider audience of prospective supporters AND improving relations with those of us still going week in week out. This kind of stuff will be child's play to a bloke with a CV like that.

So what exactly do a retired fish merchant, a retired accountant, a retired solicitor and a racehorse trainer who hasn't had a winner for three years bring to the table then?

The Lincoln chap is exactly the calibre of person we need with a cv like that. There is one stumbling block to us attracting anyone like that, and even if a miracle occurred he wouldn't last long. I am not sure what might be putting them off.

Nothing hysterical about that post. Unlike much of the thread at the weekend.
