I will start.

Can you tell me if the players have been training once a week? If so what is the reason for this?

We have tenants paying rent, a new ground sponsorship deal and with thanks to Noel a rejuvenated Social Club. Why week in week out for the past 2 years at least are supporters having to watch absolute dross on the football pitch?

That my friend is the million dollar question and the one I want answered too. You can add to that question the fact that we have one of the biggest fan bases in the league and pay the most in the league for the privilege of watching it.

Agree where this thread is going. Great Social Club, tenant income, higher than average league home gates, best sponsorship deal in a decade (NetDec, Chairman's words). How do other clubs with a hell of a lot less out perform us constantly. I accept we are conservative and we are prudent and I endorse that over boom and bust but we are punching well below our weight. If we are servicing some kind of debt, again, I agree we need to pay that down 1st before building. But let us know ( no detail needed, just a confirmation). Something doesn't add up currently. Maybe Trevor is eating about 400 quids worth of Sandwiches each week ;).

Sums up my thoughts perfectly and I still haven't found anyone that can explain this. Turn it on its head and we have played Osset Albion today who have no tenant income, no brilliant social club, much less of a fan base, no big sponsorship deal and we've been turned over 4-0. That can not be right and it makes no sense whatsoever.

Here is my question:

Which board member interviewees did not vote for Pritch despite him already being offered the job?

PS - I already know that Mark voted for Pritch to return and that Trevor voted against (he has said that himself) which leaves Reg, Neil and John Salmon.

I heard a rumour it was a 4 to 1 vote.

As for our team there is no consistency in team selection. I fail to see how bringing loads of young players on 1 month loan deals will change this anytime soon. By the time they start to settle, they'll be back with their parent clubs. 3 tough games coming up, can we keep a manager that loses their first 7 games in charge?

So Mark was the only one that voted for Pritch. My faith in our board is complete and fully explains our current plight. Jesus Christ I have heard it all.

You can not blame the manager for that if that is the clubs philosophy!!!

i still cant get my head round the fact that pritch even needed an interview.he did'nt leave us for another side he left for his own personnal reasons that he made clear.he's taken 12 months out of football to get himself sorted out and now after 20+ years loyal service to our club some members of the selection panel have crapped all over him.getting him back would've got some fans back and he was always one for bringing good new players in.the way the new manager has started it's got last season under sully written all over it and he's got his work cut out keeping us up.where is daisy hill anyway.

Given that the job had already been offered to Pritch, and that Mark voted for him in the interview process anyway, it would suggest to me that he was influenced/bullied into the interview process by other people or a person on the board. I'm not going to name names but I have my own strong suspicions on who that was.

I don't think Harris did vote for Pritch, didn't he say that he was persuaded to vote elsewhere?

All shareholders get an invite to the AGM where the companies finances (including the debt which is being furnished on an ongoing basis) is there for all to see.
