Nigerian Fash used to have access to government money? 🤔

Doobs - thanks for your input earlier. Made contact, the guys responded quickly and we’ve linked them up with some people who should be able to add some value and if not there are other options awaiting.

I love the Premier League players idea from earlier - what about some ex players too both ex Wombles and those who remember playing at Plough Lane?
Doobs - thanks very much! Snozzle, appreciate the advice, though suspect it's not all that simple. I'd like to know as much as possible about the associated risks - including the risk that the project fails and the DT doesn't subsequently handle the bond investment in a way I'd agree with.

I'd have potentially asked fewer questions a couple of years ago.

Am currently wondering if the tax deadline day is delaying some more affluent investors from declaring their lump sum into the bond and maybe they will join the scheme in February.

Last minute bookkeeping space....
The bond will still be attractive only to Wimbledon fans or those that want to do it to support the club. Anyone with sizeable money to invest can get more than 4% in various funds or other bonds. I'd be amazed if we reach £3m, albeit will be welcome.

I hope we are still ensuring the safeguards are watertight for external investment.
wdan - exactly; nobody is being forced to invest money they couldn't afford to lose if it all went belly up, and for those with modest amounts of "spare" savings, this potentially is a win-win, both from an interest rate viewpoint and from the helping to get the stadium built objective. What an incredible thing it would be if we as fans managed to bring this to a point where an affordable loan of a manageable size was enabled by the generosity of fans and others (albeit I personally went for an interest rate that is above the paltry 0.0025% or whatever it is I'm getting with my bank ISA). In fact, how banks get away with holding onto your money so that they can loan it to others at far higher rates of interest than they're giving you as an investor, and sending out letters every 6 months saying "The interest rate on your blah blah will be dropping to almost zero" is quite irritating at times. Maybe offshore is the way to go...... (as if - I certainly don't have that kind of dosh!).

yeah plenty of people I have spoken to are waiting to move money around , assess the final total after the AGM or wait for the end of the month. Still need everyone doing there bit, even if you personally cant afford it you can make up by telling everyone about it in a positive manner rather than talking it down.

I would be very surprised if we don't raise more from the Bond than than Seedrs as (1) it is a case of an investment (albeit one with risk), rather than a pur donation (2) it is being properly and seriously marketed by people within the fanbase, as opposed to the trivial laddish stuff about "your name on a urinal" which we got from the Seedrs offering (3) we all know how important it is, whereas Seedrs was pitched as being for optional extras to top up funding that was already in place.

Dr Negative - give people a chance, bonds been running less than a week and you are writing it off ffs. What did you expect £2m after a few days. As others have said people need to move money around. Me and the Mrs will be sorting out our 5k each this week.

Personally think we will better the seedrs total and more than likely end up with at least £3.5m
KT2- Its pretty clear to me. if you put in money and you lose it and this mean syou end up in the gutter you need to think about it. If you lose it and you it means you have to buy tesco blue stripe for a while go ahead.

“This isn’t a protest song, this song is Bond Day Bloody Bond Day!”
I'm going to be putting in more than I pledged in the survey. However I'll wait until after the AGM next Thursday before I decide exactly how much. There may be others in a similar position. I feel more positive about the bond, the longer I have to think about it.

Kwesi spending two weeks wages on a bond could be a game changer in more ways than one.

Oh and for those on Twitter you can reach out to John Green directly (‪@johngreen‬) we don’t need to wait for the club to ask him. The more tweets he receives the more likely he is to pitch in and help us out.

Surely Mumford can knock up a quick song. Plenty of stuff rhymes with bond. Pond.

Wand. This thing writes itself!
Kevin Maguire Is a well known journalist and Moorad Choudhry is a very well know financial strategist. Maybe they are touting the bond around in the right places. Perhaps Marcus Mumford is also promoting the bond to the high flyers in the music biz.

Interesting that we don’t seem to be wheeling out our big guns for the Bond promotion. John Green has 4.9m followers on Twitter you would have though the returns on the bond would be good enough to attract 1000 of them to invest.

Saveloy - I asked a question on here yesterday. The level of repayment risk and the exact point at which it comes into play is unclear to me. What happens if we pay into the bond but the stadium doesn't get built? Due to lack of finance etc. There's a whole spectrum of eventualities under this potential situation and it's unclear what would happen to the cash if it can't be spent on the reason it was invested. There's a significant question mark over whether commercial financing will be available even alongside an extra £3M cash from the bond, that's the grey area.

One 'unofficial' answer I received on here yday (can't remember who, sorry) was that in the case the stadium cant be built the DT *might decide to offer early redemption similarly to the DT losing a controlling stake. Not sure that gives me much comfort, tbh. Perhaps I've misunderstood.
We certainly need to promote the bond to the big wide world outside of the 'Womble bubble'.

Must admit I share some concerns that we're not reaching out beyond our own fanbase
