Re: Investment

What a weird original post. Tell you what, fair enough if it's genuine, and if it is, contact board. It comes across as a wind up merchant, toying with peoples feelings. We've had enough disappointments over the years. Back on to the discussion from the rest of the thread though: Yes, i agree we're...

As the 75% rule comes from the articles of the club, and to change the articles of the club requires a 75% vote, would it not need a 75% vote in favour of changing the 75% rule....?

On the flip side, £2m invested into infrastructure would be rather handy What would £2m get us? . Our very own ground where all profits from the bar and hospitality would 100% go back into the club..

£2m - sounds a lot doesn't it but in reality its 4 seasons of subsidising a full time playing budget. Then what?

How wealthy is Brad Groves? If Spenny do go up, would he be prepared to bankroll them to the cost of a million? He'll already need 150k plus for them to be eligible for promotion this season? Anyway, I'd hope we could all think longer term. Slowly we are getting there regarding the infrastructure. ...

If we wanted to go full time under fan ownership then we'd need crowds in excess of 3k, probably closer to 3.5k.

Not going to complain about these prices, they aren't out of line with other similar clubs in this division. Happy that the concession price has increased to £10.
