There may be no Marcus Brutus behind JC (I mean AC) at this particular forum, but will the fans get any real answers or which of the above phrases will be said.

Forgot to mention you can have as many choices as you want; you could go for all 30 if you feel that way inclined,

I expect a lot of management buzzwords.

I'm fully expecting the same buzz words and guff we've been fed in bits here and there for the last 6 months. So I won't be wasting my time.

However I will be reading any report of it with interest, hoping I'm wrong and that some actual information comes out of it. I won't hold my breath though.

Can't win with some people, forum requested, forum booked, opportunity to ask direct questions and people still don't go. If you feel the answer has been fudged if you ask a direct question, challenge and push back

Lots of platitudes.
Stick with us
Lot's of things going on but we're not actually going to tell you anything concrete

Personally, I think this is 6 months too late, but nothing about that surprises me.

I am going on Wednesday, if just to give the owners a final chance to convince me why I should bother to part with another penny in the direction of this club. If I don't hear things that are either believable or are just the same old BS that we've had fed to us by different owners over the last 10 years then I'm walking away
To be the man.... I forget how the rest of that goes

I'm going, but I am expecting quite a bit of 'management speak'

Having been to a few over the years, they tend to be carefully managed - without much opportunity to 'push back'. You ask your question, they give a carefully worded answer and then it quickly moves on.

I tried to nail down Ryan Whitcut once at a forum, but it didn't really end well - he gave a snarky answer, with knowing glances to his cohorts on the top table, and when I tried to ask a follow up RHP snatched the mic from my hand.

Hopefully we'll get a bit more insight this time :shock:

Sounds like a fair approach roofaldo2.
Maybe if we give AC 1hr to convince us - and if he doesnt - at exactly 19:30 all RAB members stand up and walk out - lets show our solidarity - he needs us more then we need him

No, it was requested months ago. Had it happened months ago, I would have been there. I'm absolutely tired of being fobbed off and reading the same guff in the T&A every week with someone (usually Toovey) telling us to stick with the club. They could very easily release some of the info we've all been demanding for ages via a statement on the website, but they don't. They could easily put something of worth in the T&A, but they don't.
This forum is too little, too late. From my own personal point of view, I'm in a place now where the club need to do something to get me back, rather than expecting me to turn up again.

As I said, I'll happily read what is said. I would love for what is said to be that thing that convinces me to give up some money or time again. But until I've read that, I'll be doing neither. If the forum ends up being another one of those "There's things going on which we can't tell you, stick with us, come on the journey with us, we're still transitioning", all they're going to do is push me even further away and it'll get to a point where it won't matter what they say, as I won't be listening any more. At the moment, I'm still listening.

The time for talking (or even lack of it in our case) must now be over. Show us the money.
