The bond may prove that the club did correctly predict the level of contribution from fans that would get us to an achievable and manageable loan, they just didn't know how to go about extracting it.

womble - If, for example, Charlie or Wiggo wanted to be on the DTB they had the recognition factor to have stood with a high chance of success. The fact that they didn't suggests to me they didn't want to and further the possibility that they don't want the long term commitment. It takes nothing away from the work they are doing right now if we respect that. If it isn't the case then there will be more elections, where I imagine they would be shoo-ins.

Old I - nominations to election closed before any of this became public knowledge.

Trebor - When Kingsmeadow was sold before the finance was fully in place for the new stadium was just one of them.

Still not sure when the members agreed Kingsmeadow could be sold with an £11m funding gap.
If the people now doing a fantastic job over a short period had wanted a long term involvement they had the recognition factor to have achieved it. I assume they have other responsibilities in life that they have put aside for a relatively short period and will return to them when the current situation has ended. If they do want a more long term involvement they can stand the next time there are elections.

Just noticed that the lesser spotted Roscrow and Appiah have been out and about, trying to get considered for the pecking order

I'm way too angry to even think about doing that. Angry at previous DTBs that seemingly didn't do enough to challenge/support the previous CEO over numerous years. Angry at a plc board that didn't fulfil its obligations. Angry at us as members: we all seem to have had a growing sense that something wasn't right that was growing over years but we didn't do much to challenge it. A lot of what we've achieved feels very hollow to me at the moment.

Respectfully totally disagree keefy - just because something has been done very very badly doesn’t mean it can’t be done at all. The PLB guys have shown that the skills and experience are out there - we just have a board that have bunker-arrogance and very little ability.

Change the structure, change the personnel, live within our means, AFC Wimbledon goes on forever.
Trig you may have twigged .. i may be more scathing about the axis then you ... can't have both us banging on about a clear out .. a lot of people i know are saying and feeling what you are writing here.. once we successfully achieve our finances, we will then need a regime change of "believers" and perhaps deliver a "socios" model like in Spain ..We thank past people for their services and start afresh...Our Wimbledon Way boys and girls need every support at this time...and are heading for glory ...👏👏👍👏👏👏😁

Lets put NPL in the back of the Net😃😃😃😃
Spit Also agree too many fans with their heads in the sand! Who's going to jump onto the board if we sack the existing members/ If we can't do any of the things Triggerfish mentions then surely Fan ownership has failed!

Glad to see the plc board is now taking its function seriously by actually meeting. The corporate governance at the club had been absolutely shocking, and bringing in a more professional focus was one of the "behind the scenes" compliance things that I was urging the club to do, so I'm glad that's finally been addressed. Now we just need to think about composition of the board to make sure the fans remain dominant on it and at the same time bring in more professional people who nonetheless respect our corporate culture as a 'bottom up' membership organisation.

Why does mcnay have to stand down as he has a different opinion to some?im sure some support his way too.

Clean sweep for me on the paid you don’t get rewarded for failure on this scale by keeping your job. Ivor deserves gratitude for what he’s done particularly in the early days but it’s time for fresh ideas and a fresh approach it’s clear that even without the NPL crisis (Ivor’s own word) that the club is not well placed to perform well commercially in the modern world. We can’t get a loan, can’t raise funds, can’t sell naming rights, can’t communicate with the fans, can’t buy or sell players well. Joe doesn’t exist so can be replaced easily.

Clean slate well overdue.
I agree OI and if Iain, Mark, Ed etc all stand down I'm not sure there'll be a big queue of replacements. Different with Joe and Ivor as they are paid roles but I'm in favour of keeping them both.

Can I ask how come are Andrew Scott Limited not building the stadium. [Link]

What was the reasoning behind the change of contractor.
I think a number of people will want to quit whatever the outcome. I'm sorry but I don't believe Iain, Mark etc. are desperate to hang on to their unpaid and largely unthanked roles. I disagree with Iain but I'd disagree with him more if he didn't say what he thought was best for the club, it would actually be a dereliction of his responsibilities as chairman.

Looks like Iain McNay was a big supporter of the anonymous 3. I wonder if he’ll fall on his sword if the PLB is a success?

Very disappointed in him - how can an honorary VP support selling out?
Fascinating DTB minutes of the October [Link] and November [Link] meetings

Before & after the shit hit the fan(s)
Thinking about it though, that must in some way just be attached to the stadium, not the club as a whole.

Didn't Rhys Weston end up working for YGT? They turnover £60 million now apparently.

Big old bond for you Mr. Harding and get Westy to chuck a bit of his recent winnings in while you're at it :)
Absolutely no idea. Guess to stop people taking the money then immediately selling the asset they've improved?
