From the website -

https://www.marinerstrust.co.uk/fans-forum-wednesday-26th-february/

” We will be holding a fans forum next Wednesday 26th February in the Trust Bar starting at 7.30pm. This will give fans the chance to be consulted on the plans for relocation, next season, feedback from recent EFL meeting and indeed any other topic they wish to raise. Board members present will be Philip Day, John Fenty and Dave Roberts plus  chief executive Ian Fleming. As well as questions all ideas to capatilise on the current momentum will be very welcome.

We appreciate this is relatively short notice but following a meeting this morning we agreed we should do this sooner rather than later and holidays and other commitments would have meant waiting a further 3 or 4 weeks which we felt was too long.

If you are unable to attend please send any questions or ideas to enquiries@marinerstrust.co.uk.

Entry is free and is open to all.

Hoping the questions will be mainly about the new stadium plans, like how quickly the club can get together a funding framework, how the club are going to make BP a more accessible place re ticketing system and a better place to watch football in the meantime in order to increase matchday income and season ticket sales to bolster IH's playing budget..

If there isn't anything to report then the one week's notice (urgent?) timing of the Forum signals it being nothing more of a tick box exercise whereby the board and the Trust are cynically using the current wave of optimism brought by IH to give themselves a pat on the back.

Hoping there's more to it, but feel it could be a bit of a damp squib..

"Everyone seems happy.. let's get a Fan's Forum out of the way. and pick up some brownie points". I hope this isn't the case, because despite IH and onfield progress, there's still a lot of unanswered questions and work for the club to do off the pitch..One bust up between IH and JF..and where would that leave us? Exactly where we've always been..

I hope so but would be very surprised to hear about anything more explicit than warm words.

It really has gone on long enough and in some ways is becoming more of a drag on the club than a plus point.

Is it really just a pipe dream or can anybody show any actual proof it could happen within 5 years?

I haven't been involved in this but am really struggling to understand your apparent assertion that this has somehow been engineered to give the Trust and club "a pat on the back".  Trust Board members are inundated with requests for news on the new stadium. What better way to try to deal with it than a forum with the people who can provide stuff of value to the discussion.



I have an inferiority complex-It's not a very good one though.

Hi Barra. Hope you're on the mend. Definitely not an assertion mate as I clearly said I was hoping it wasn't the case. But I've been a Town fan far too long to not be even a litlle bit cynical. Looking forward to being informed on the progress of the new stadium then..

Yeah sorry...bit of an over-reaction! Genuinely think it could be the thing to focus understanding on where we are now.
Both the Trust and GTFC are going to have to battle on without me for a good while I'm afraid.  Thsee injuries are going to take some time to recover from...cheers for asking mate. (On the grounds that since I last attended the season has taken off I can see J.F. paying me to stay away)

Good to hear from you, the important thing is you take the tme to recovery properly, GTFC will still be here, when you are well enough to return.
Slow progress is good progress, just like GTFC, small steps to big improvements, further down the line.
look after yourselve.
