I'm not sure it will be season changing Windy, I think Erik will divert the majority of it to NPL.

Because that was a budget January for a club that had cash on the hip.
Evening all. It shows how beaten up we have been with performances over the last year or so that a game on Saturday worth potentially a £1m is being discussed with all the enthusiasm of a trip to Accrington.

£1m would be season changing - sadly next season not this...
Lord Infamous, where can one find his spurious accusations?

Tom Elliot maybe back but he's not fully fit. Millwall delayed his shoulder operation until the summer cause they couldn't get another striker in. Coming from someone who has dislocated both shoulders once you've done it once despite all the rehab / physio it becomes very unstable hence the need for an operation and plus you're more likely to dislocate the other shoulder.

So if he plays on Saturday we need to be tugging at his shoulder(s) to put him off his game :)
Oyston has the money stashed away and can get a loan if needed. he has not gone away yet.

Club that sings song about snorting cocaine shocked by man who may or may not have snorted cocaine.

Short shelf life story
So Ardley's little bro is accusing Wally of snorting coceina (who cares). Then I realise, Ardley's little bro. His irrelevancy hurts more than his words.

The fact Blackpool reached 47 points in a shitty atmosphere where the fans are boycotting the matches suggests they’re not going to struggle to stay up even with 12 point deduction.

A 12-point deduction will put Blackpool on 35 points, adding to the eight or so other teams all aiming to join is in the relegation slots.

Surrey Senior Cup 2 Banstead 1-1 AFC Wimbledon (6-5 on pens) Around 50-60 in attendance, including a few visiting fans Adm £7 Online "programme"... in reality, a few articles on the website homepage First trip up to Merland Rise for almost two years - no noticeable changes since then, still one of the better grounds at step 5 (though you need to visit the clubhouse outside the ground if you want food, drink or the loo) and still chilly.. An interminable shoot out settled this, Banstead winning despite missing their first three! They also missed a penalty very early in the game, the only other chance in a tight first half being Wimbledon's opener, a near post header from a corner. A few (but not many) more chances at both ends after the break but, although the young Wombles looked shaky at the back under pressure, they weren't put under any really sustained pressure. Then Banstead scored out of nothing with four minutes left, a good cross-shot from inside the box, which meant we headed straight to penalties. 0-1 after three spot kicks each but again Wimbledon couldn't see it out, and Banstead certainly enjoyed the winning save which earns them an attractive QF at home to Woking.

Spill the beans
Blackpool fans don’t care how many points they are deducted, just happy to be getting their club back.

Might mean fewer people watching Fleetwood and AFC Fylde.
David Conn just tweeted: "Blackpool Football Club have been put into receivership today, to be sold so that Valeri Belokon can be paid the £££ms he is owed by the Oystons. Not certain yet if @EFL will deduct 12 points."

KT2, I have to say the FCB have played a massive hand in that. They have become near unchallenged and at least one is highly skilled and experienced in the manipulation of the DTB. That was my hope with some proper new blood (acknowledging the bean counting faux pas)..

Err no, sift, have a specific remit to avoid 'actually isnt really qualified'.

And everyone that stands as an agenda
The greatest 'legacy challenge' that our ownership model faces is the fact that it is so unbelievably fucking boring. It's hard enough to get the leather jacket wearing and gammon crews to participate. Millennials and younger generations are going to be even harder to engage.

They will vote for a sugar daddy out of sheer fucking boredom.
The specific job system has severe drawbacks. One person who actually isn't really qualified and has an agenda stands as Treasurer and they're elected so you can't do much about it till the next elections. Two excellent people stand for Secretary and you lose a good Board/committee member who could fill another role. No system is perfect but ours seems the most commonly used.

Any co-opted member should stand or step down at the next election
Yes Trebor. Pointless ending up with all 4 incomings on a ticket of "comms" when the skills required may of had a specific and exact need: eg, someone with a development/surveying/project management background and a bona fida accountant/accounts manager.

oh well
Yes, we need to have a think about the constitution and how officers are appointed. There is an argument for being elected to specific roles, although there are pros and cons with that. There are lots of issues with the constitution that need tidying up. Not sure yet who'll be leading on it at board level, but look forward to hearing members' views a bit later in the year.

The constitution, in common with that of every voluntary organisation I've been involved with, allows for co-opting a small number of members. This fulfills two purposes - covering gaps in expertise and allowing conspiracy theorists to claim it is all a fix and the elections meaningless.

If that was a specific skill set that was required......then nominate one of the vacant positions as requiring that at election time
