Keefy you’re more investor-owned than fan-owned. Are you considering a bond or are you hoping we sell?

Asked without prejudice.
True A4E - my bond email went into spam. People should definitely be checking there.

If a fan wanted an investor to take over,would they put money in to stay fans owned?

I would like the new stadium to have a very small corner, called the Whinging Cunts stand. It would be especially for that small but vocal group of "supporters" who delight in sneering at the club, denigrating its fan-owned ethos, and who delight in predicting that everything will be for the worst in the worst of all possible worlds, while parading the fact they won't dip into their own pockets to put even a single penny into the club, while brazenly expecting everyone else to do so.

FUCK. RIGHT. OFF.
I wonder how many people have done the PLB form and then failed to check their junk mail and transfer the funds from their accounts......

Seems very encouraging if the current total has been raised from just 175 people.

We will crunch some more numbers and put our some analysis when we smash the 1m barrier by the way. Hopefully pretty soon!

Oh sorry you meant DTB members. Well yes perhaps they were better aware of the jeopardy than the rest of us. I’ll say it again though - the current number is 175 people so I fully expect it to rise.

I don’t think that’s true at all Treebs. Most people put some disposable income into Seedrs. In most cases it never accesses people’s savings just their current accounts. And the jeopardy of the situation wasn’t communicated at all. That’s one of the reasons why several of us were so insistent at the December meeting that the Bond should be tried. We started from the small sample size of ourselves and friends who knew would do it, then eventually persuade a straw poll of the room to be taken and then ran a survey. The 770k by the way is from 175 people. The average purchase is over 4K. There are a lot of people still out there we hope will come on board. Every bond sold helps from 1k on upwards

Henry Potter: can only definitively speak for myself, but I think most put what they could afford into the crowdfunding. Which in my case was £0. 😒

Just a thought if the club advertised nationwide to recruit a volunteer to Head our DT Board... would we get applicants'...? They may not be Dons Fan ( being a Dons Fans, well that got us in this xxxt ) they may want the challenge on their CV ..and may believe in our community spirit and ethos ..a 4 year tenure ... give them ££££bonuses

Treebs . Corporate Governance is a pillar to running a Fans owned club, we are too cumbersome .Dave Boyle talking on 9 years podcast talked about this...yes you are right we need to have a culture and a constitution that embraces a bottom up membership.. Erik did embrace the culture but i believe over the years a delicate shift of attitude grew.... Businesses and as an example Schools flail and slowly perform badly if those at the Helm are only paying lip service when following a culture... these challenging posts that are appearing now would have fallen on deaf ears whilst we were riding high...but the seeds of difficulties were sprouting..... If the people at the top don't believe in a Fans ownership model then they should not be there... i don't think i can get over Joe Palmers speech in December when he said he was an "agnostic" when he was asked his view on taking in investors....also the axis were in for investors.. Trig over to you ....😡

TF - it is our fault as the DTB has enormous power, they control 90% of the shares. If they are misusing or more to the point not using their powers then we need better people elected from the membership who are prepared to serve. If we can't find and elect such people, which I believe we can, then those who want to sell out are right.

Our 'figurehead' needs to be the Trust chair, representing the Trust members and therefore the club owners. Think of other Football League clubs. How many chief executives can you name? I doubt you can name more than one, if that. It is or should be pretty much a background role behind the owner. Now think how many EFL club owners you can name. Probably far more. That's how it should be.

A chief executive shouldn't be the decision maker: their job is to represernt the views of the board (and in our case therefore the Trust members), not to be setting the agenda. That's especially true if we're to grow as a club, where delegation will be key.

OI I feel like being a member of the DTB has the same weight as being a squirrel on the ISS. The elections for as long as I can remember have been akin to people running for school council. The structure of the club is such that the governor of the Bank of England on the DTB couldn’t have prevented this situation. We need a complete restructure and rebalancing of decision making power. And then some decision makers - not exactly JP’s forte it seems.
