The Trust have no plan or strategy. Time for Change 12:23 - May 16 with 9073 viewsTheResurrection

The month of June is an important time for the Trust. It's the time they hold their elections but guess what, and it's the same every year there's virtually no mention of them.

This is the only real strategy they've ever had. One where the mechanism of the organisation doesn't get the chance to evolve or even breathe.

If the Trust had the best intentions of the Football Club and its fans at heart they'd be shouting from the rooftops that elections are due soon and doing their best to blood younger, more hungry and determined volunteers to sweep up their mess and inability to ever get things done.

They're confused, they're silent, they don't know which way to turn, what's up or down or wrong or right.

The set up we have currently with Mute Stu and Alan Lewis has been nothing short of a farce, yet they continue to hide away hoping that June will come and go so they can go back into hiding once more.

Time for Change??

Yeah. But years ago

Heh, cos that's what I suggested eh. Iesu Mawr. This place sometimes.

Like it or not, plenty of people give the square root of zero fook about off the pitch matters, ownership etc. Can't say it totally surprised me when only about 60% voted in the consultation... Many had no interest or understanding. They do love things like that I as it relates more to the supporter experience. Each to their own I say.


Heh, cos that's what i suggested you suggested eh.

It's your (The Trust) job to ensure that those people are informed of what is going on off the pitch and with ownership etc. You have failed massively, and will go down alongside as Jenkins et al as nothing but snakes.

A couple of full page adverts in the Welsh rags, written and online would have gone a long way in achieving the above.

And still we wait for communication of substance...

I've got precious little time for anyone who compares anyone who's given their time up for the Trust to the likes of the sellouts and their actions. Still, par for the course sometimes.

Anyway, a helpful reminder for those who fancy standing that they'll need a thick skin.

Ah right, so it's okay for Trust wallahs to royally f*ck up and still be respected, but it doesn't work the same for our ex shareholders? Tidy.

End Of July I think. So if you join on 21st July, it's only 10 days before you need to join again.

I did that a couple of years ago - had forgotten to rejoin and did so in June, paying £10 for just a month before having to pay again.


No champagne for you that month!

There’s a difference between an opinion on the effectiveness or otherwise of the Trust boards past and present, and all opinions on that are valid, and the actions of Jenkins et al when selling the club. The fact that you somehow see the two as equal surprises me greatly.

If you can point to anything anyone on the Trust did that compares to the sort of duplicitous acts that the sellers did for personal gain of millions then I'm all ears.

I'm shocked that you can make a comparison of the two boards in the same sentence.

Only one of the two have made a lot of money. And the other have given so much time and effort over the years...for now't.

I don't think anyone is trying to say that they're equal ( misdeameanours )

But certainly the Trust should be totally ashamed of themselves as well in relation to their pathetic handling of the whole thing.

How about directing the members to a no vote? How about lying about Mr Cooze being paid, then hanging him out to dry? How about doing absolutely nothing for the past 18 months in regards to speaking up about what the fûck is happening to our club?

Shall I go on?

I'm not after your vote or anyone else's.

I need to step away from the Swans a bit for my own sanity..

Although if no one did step up and challenge the status quo I'd feel guilty

As for Jenkins, I'm undecided. A part of me wants him gone because I don't think we'll be able to move on properly with him still attached.

And a part of me thinks he would be useful staying. He's picked the right manager to get us up before. I really don't want to go over all the usual old ground as well but I'm a genuine Swans fan and that's my opinion. It's only for the right reasons and me thinking what maybe the best for my football club.

Try and respect that.

Apologies, Nookie - only just back online.

In terms of the number of votes, I guess 50%+1 would be enough to guarantee election but I don't think it's possible to calculate what the number is without knowing the number of returned ballot papers and the number of candidates.

In the 2017 election there were 860 valid ballot papers returned and 12 candidates for 6 vacancies. The sixth highest number of votes was 384 (44.65%).

In 2016, there were 582 valid ballot papers returned and 7 candidates for 5 vacancies. The fifth highest number of votes was 477 (81.96%).


Cheers MattG

Could I also clarify that on each valid ballot paper - if in 2016 there were 5 vacancies then each member would select 5 candidates and if in 2017 there were 6 vacancies - then each member would select 6 candidates. In contrast to each member just selecting 1 candidate at each election?
