Interesting, thanks. Can’t see why a DT-commissioned third party report couldn’t be made available to DT members (redacted, if necessary).

i'm not sure whether there is a reason why we would or wouldn't share some details. but, equally, i don't want to get it wrong and it was quite complex (ie not as simple as keep this board and that one) but iirc we spoke about a two-board structure. but, again, not as simple as that ( there was also an audit comittee - whatever that is) and it was as much about reporting structures being less flat, which i would totally agree with fwiw

Would be good to see at least a summary of what the students came up with. And would be better if someone with say journalism experience could get the report from the students directly rather than having it with the currently trustily-challenged club filter applied.

Everything’s fine we’re getting it all just about right and the future is not yours to worry about. Virus gon getcha.
Thanks, Doobs. Sorry to be a dullard at this time of the weekend but do you recall if Imperial said anything about our organisational structure, ie DTB/FCB/PLC?

god i hate 'bloggers' :)
To me there must be some importance attached to the youth set up, even if it is for no other reason than to sell players to Premier League clubs, or to championship clubs who will then sell them onto Premier League clubs with a sell on fee.

Kentish, from memory I think the minutes referred to the "football club programme" or something. Seemed an odd way to describe a matchday programme. Thought it could mean programme in a different sense like the (but not the) AFCW Foundation kids programme or something. Wasn't sure what it meant. I guess it could well be matchday programme if only 15% of fans buy one.

realise that sounded a bit fluffy, perhaps. more specifically, there was a suggestion that we get our strategy set in stone, as a club. (as we are doing - see below re Big Picture project). there was also mention of drafting in skilled professionals (which we've actually done fairly recently, with co-option and working groups). No real blood lust and lots of food for thought - but only a starting point imho

Trig - it's worth watching/listening to. I downloaded the audio version and listened on my way to/from work.

(Definitely a joke btw. You just build up a mental image of posters and they are highly unlikely to be anywhere near the real thing. So just different.)

KD - I'm not running away, I'm trying to remember what the main takeaway was from the three hour presentation/Q&A :) ... the main thing is it's recomendations which will be taken on board but only as part of a pretty huge project which has just begun in earnest. The 'bigger picture' consultation asking us what our aims are as a club for the next 1-5-10 years (fan owned still a priority? championship football at what cost? etc) etc) comes first and we will shape governance with that in mind.

they recommended a more fluid, more streamlined management structure iirc
I kinda want to ask what you thought we'd look like. But I probably don't. (I'm better looking off screen (hopefully. please god).i'm not sure anyone looks that good with a laptop camera pointing up their nose, mind :)

if i could edit videos, i would make a 'highlights' of the important bits, for sure.
Doobs is not what I thought he’d look like. Neither is lukeyboy. But I like the fact you’re both willing to put yourselves out there. Not gonna watch the video of course cos it’s over an hour long and I’m a millennial. If you can condense the main points down to 15 seconds I’ll watch a bit of it.

Kentish "Any chance the DT folk on here can answer about the Imperial ..." You can ask the question on the DT Forum ProBoards ....intrigued why you don't ask the question there in the "Ask the Board section ? Or perhaps you did .(sorry I don't know your name ) The DT Board members are poised to answer your question .....
