I think the Club issued shares at £25 each back in Ted's days. I don't recall it being a big success and many shareholders (if not all) saw their money disappear into the ether (or Cyprus).

So you don’t think there are 100 people out there willing to invest?

You really shouldn’t judge others by own despicably low standards. I know at least four people who would happily invest so long as it was a well presented offer. None of them would ever expect to see a financial return, just a playing one.


You should stop trying to protect your source of information. We have all seen these before pay a £1 extra to retain Nigel Wright or invest in a 10 year ticket or the pay so much per month to guarantee your seat in a new ground. I know these were the ideas of Ted Richardson but none of them worked except the £1 on the gate which still went ahead.
I suppose you have a list of supporters who have donated in the past, see if they want to stump up £1000 each to keep you in with those at the club.
You do of course realise that this is only hypothetical it’s just a shame your automatic anger when the ability of those running the club to generate income is brought into question.

I’ve absolutely no idea whatsoever if Ted Richardson made peoples money disappear to Cyprus or not…
Let’s say he made some odd decisions in his time and leave it there…

What I do know from listening to Micheal Carter and John Minards is that they don’t come across as the kind of people who would use the opportunity to cash in ….so to speak…

This is a good idea but I would need to know that there were another 99 committed before I handed over £1k. Would be weeing in the wind if it were just 10 of us.

Absolutely Wollo
It might be it falls well short .it might be it’s a non starter with the club itself.. I’m prepared to contribute an amount myself if it seems a viable idea..
The £1K is an example, others maybe able to contribute lesser amounts. But at least you and others on here are prepared to talk about it in a positive way.

I am afraid you would need to be committed to hand over £1000.

Count you out then Lad
And hopefully the rest of this conversation and idea!
