Just in case it's lost in the other thread, I would like to propose that every Trust member standing for election state explicitly whether they personally support or oppose HJ and LD retaining paid roles in the club.
I think that is pretty central to my vote but, it's a democracy, so I accept if it's not the majority view.
Anyone got a recommendation for a reasonably priced Sunday lunch around Brecon by any chance? Was thinking of the felin fach griffin, but it's too pricey for our friends, plus they (and me if I'm honest) are more ale pie and chips type folks.
Anyone ever done this? My missus did it and drove about 20 miles before the car conked out. RAC are coming tomorrow to drain and flush, but I'm a little worried, to say the least, about fuel pump, injectors etc. Just wondered if anyone had any experience of this and what needs to be done. Plus of course, why it all seems to all be my fault...
Oh and by the way, if anyone tries to wind me up any tighter than I am currently coiled, I will find you and I will fill you with petrol.
I know we've done this a few times but I'm pretty much convinced I will go down this route shortly if I'm impressed with a test drive next week given the deal on offer.
Anyone got a firm recommendation for a company? I'm tempted to go with nationwide as I have heard of them and I know Cooperman recommended them, but they are not the cheapest. Anyone used a company called blue chilli? Or have any other good definite personal experiences with others?
Just to add: last season we were on...27 points after 27 games and only 3 points from 18th. In the Laudrup/Monk relegation fight we were on 28 points and 4 points clear of 18th.
So we are relatively better off than both previous struggle seasons when we survived easily in the end, after starting from worse, in fact being a walking corpse. It is certainly not over yet, but it is nothing short of astounding.
Or rather, anti-virus. Any teckky competent type know the up to date thinking on this? The McAfee stuff that came free with my PC expires in January. Do I need to buy this stuff or are free ones good enough? What do you guys do?
Done an interesting piece in Times I read out at lunch. Can't link it as it's paywall, but he continues to justify the sale as not being for the money. As he's loaded already then it carries a bit more clout I guess.
Anyway his condensed view (from unreliable memory) is that when they took over it was like running a corner shop and now suddenly we're in charge of Saisburys...basically saying they were out of their depth and gone as far as their competence allowed. He also seems to imply that the whole model (including the trust) is not fit for purpose in the "Sainsbury" world, although I don't think it said that explicitly.
The other interesting bit is that he reckons that the yanks want to build community links with the University, Medical school and the Ospreys to create a synergy that will ebnhance the social fabric of the area, or some such words. Despite my enormous, huge, massive scepticism of the sellers motives and the buyers intentions, this did put a different lens on the topic.
...at nottingham forest sure worked. Now they are beng passed to an alleged bribing, blackmailing gangster. Allowed by the 'fit and proper' test obviously. Super. Capitalism in football - dontcha just love it...all based on trying to rape community assets built over 100 years. Still luckily we have fans on our board that would never ever take the risk of that happening to us.
