trigs - just confirmed, only three people have access to that @PLB email, and none are DTB. Fire away :)

It's not like crowd funding where people are essentially making donations and there will be an initial burst followed by a tail off and then some momentum at the end. It's a bond involving large amounts of money which people generally don't have just lying around and requires some planning , moving money around, talking to the bank etc.

Haha. I’m 99% sure it goes to Charlie and Xav (and possibly one or two others) and pretty sure it isn’t accessed by DTB members. That said I’ll check that for you because there are one or two DTB members working in tandem with the fans on the Bond iyswim.

Thanks doobs - can I be extremely rude and ask who that email goes to? Is it Wiggo and Charles or is it the DTB peeps?

I promise I’m not starting a fight!
TF - you’re right re publicity, definitely all helps - every Bond could be the one that get us over the line. I know there is a strategy, and we have some professionals helping out, but if you have contacts it can’t do any harm I reckon. Might be worth emailing the guys at ploughlanebond@thedonstrust.org ? I’m not in the loop, but personally I did see a couple of online pieces yesterday and I know of one newspaper piece and one radio piece coming up over the next two days, so can see some fruit bearing in the meantime.. all helps

I don't necessarily think the PLB is tailing off - it's only been a few days, and there will be plenty who, as said earlier, will need a few days to sort their finances, move a bit from here to there, etc before putting in. The main thing is that those who said they would on the survey will, hopefully, keep to that - otherwise, why would they say on the survey that it would interest them ('scuse the pun!)? It's not only survey people either - I'm doing my best to get mates involved too..... This can be done, but only provided everyone who is able to gets involved and spreads the word around :)

We should be getting decent PR about the bond. Sort of thing I would have thought the Evening Standard would do a nice piece on. I think people are right that some non-wombles would be interested but at the moment they probably don’t know it exists. I know a few PR types if the PLB need some advice on how to contact journalists.

I’m in a similar boat to OI and will sort it next week and I am sure that there are loads of others in the same position. I’m sure negative talk is not great for people who are still deciding whether to take the plunge. Hopefully continued or greater momentum will help and in simple terms we need 3000 people to invest £3000.00 then we have nailed it. Keep up the good work Doobs.

750 people at £12000.00 sound even better.
would be a shame if the bonds doesn't reach a target and we cant get a loan.im sure the investors have walked away too by now.

non league wasn't so bad
It is going to be next week before I have money available. I wasn't taking money out of a tax free ISA till I had seen the details of the bond. No idea how many are like me but I'm sure I'm not the only one.

and my investment wasn't in the survey
I know it’s been asked before, but was the £3.5m weighted with our likelihood of investment or was it assuming everyone would invest?

Kt2 - what’s unclear currently? Maybe people here can help.

Seems to me the bond closely matches what was discussed in the survey, right down to the pick-your-own-rate-and-maturity
Wu - I 'pledged' (for want of a better word) via the survey, but as I've mentioned previously the proposition at the time was so muddy that my 'pledge' was basically meaningless. And it still is quite unclear.

Again as said before, the survey was better than nothing and I'm certainly not knocking it, but it was a long way from a reliable indicator of uptake IMO.
I suppose the main thing is that it is in our hands. If we, as a fanbase, can and do snap up the Bonds, we can remain fan-owned, complete the stadium how we want it (and on time), pack it out and attract ever better players. It might turn out we simply don’t have the £££ between us, and then we go to plan b (whatever that is). But at this moment in history, we have the option to shape our destiny - and that’s probably a better position than we were in 30 days ago.

[188.lo.gg.ed] 
Hoping many outside the fanbase are attracted to the 4% also - would make things a lot easier
Those things are true Doobs, but people hopefully gave it a fair bit of thought when it came to the pledges. Of course money will continue to roll in but I would have hoped we would be well over 1.25 million by now. We shall see, but I’m afraid I’m negative about this now.

I'm waiting on one of my existing 007s to mature; unfortunately this will be post 14/2/2020, so will miss this or capture a Phase 2 I guess?

Those that are interested and have savings they could invest but don't have huge amounts sitting idle are probably still mulling it over. Suspect there are a number of (probably younger, in their 30s) potential investors who have only invested in vanilla savings accounts before and are considering whether they like the risk of the bond.

Very quickly *launched* of course

Which is why I shouldn’t bank online, on my phone :)
Do you think so, Wu? I’m not so sure. It has been (nessesarily) very quickly, and people need time to move money, surely? Personally, I would need to have an evening off to do some online banking and send it to the right place (rather than do it on my phone). Some people may have partners to consult. Others may have money tied up in 30- day notice accounts. I would never have assumed the whole £3m pledged would come in within the first 2/3 full working days... can’t be sure but I hope you’re wrong. And I hope what you say is motivation enough for peeps to get involved - Bond and an easily serviceable loan by far the preferred option imho - then we can think about packing out the new place, selling loads of beer or whatever and get better players to play in front of a fanbase making 4% :)

It’s unfortunately quite clear that any momentum with the Bond is waning rapidly. We won’t get anywhere near 3 million sadly. Shortly the Club can push on with their preferred option which is selling out.

Wycombe would've been bottom of that form table had they not got a winning goal in the 4th minute of added time v Rochdale. Our next opponents Burton are 2nd in that table. We'll need all our players to be on it again to win that one.
