    Surely this can't go wrong now

    Is Administration a desirable outcome?

    I listened to the Periscope stream (Thanks CJ!) yesterday and it seems like those there like the idea of starving the club into administration where the Trust will be ready to pick up the club for a pittance. The side effect of course is that it will hurt SISU. Those who believe that we can...

    The truth is out there

    ... and we'll never know it. Back in 2011 it slowly dawned on most of us that the club couldn't continue losing millions every year. The Ranson, Hoffman, Elliott failure left the club drained of cash and low on owner confidence. The board lead by Ken Dulieu was another complete disaster.The...

    The next three games ...

    Sheffield U and Barnsley away and MK Dons at home. Two promotion and one relegation candidate. Doesn't look like we'll get a lot from those games. Last year we lost 1-2 to both Sheffield and MK Dons - while Barnsley played in the Championship. Looking for a bit of positives the reverse games...

    Did sisu save ACL?

    If this forum had a dis-like button, I am sure this post would set a new record. But as the Trust hold an open meeting tomorrow I thought I would give the meeting something different to talk about (or not). I am sure most of you who have trawled through the court transcript have already read...

    Daniels gone to Germany ...

    ... for a hernia operation. http://www1.skysports.com/football/news/11719/8997589/ Didn't see it mentioned anywhere on this forum.

    Port Vale chairman on CWR

    Basically said there's NO chance ccfc will return to the Ricoh this season. He also fully understand sisu's desire to free the club from the Ricoh lease, although he thought the communication to the fans had been abysmal. Finally he said the fans should get united.

    The war is over, time for the peace treaty

    It's been a long battle and the collateral losses are unbelievable. It started with the mismanagement that lead to the club selling Highfield Road and then all stakes in the Ricoh Areana even before a ball was kicked in our state of the art stadium. From that point it was ever really going to...

    Let me start a rumor (make that two rumors)

    I haven't seen it reported anywhere - maybe because I haven't searched for it - but apparantly we are on the brink of signing an argentinian attacking midfielder. His initials are GB and I have this from a friend of him, who only last night spoke to him on the phone. Gerado ... oh, damn I gave...

    Why Otium?

    Sisu are masters of setting up new companies, so why use Otium as a vehicle for assembling all activities of the football club? It's been sitting idle for a couple of years - so much so that nobody really found it worth the efford to file the accounts. Otium means leissure or even retirements...

    What if ACL ...

    ... were owned solely by CCC? What if a charity had never been involved? Would it had made any difference to the negotiations? Would there ever have been a rent strike? Would we the fans have demanded the city to sell ACL to the club at the prize of the mortgage? Would this have ever gone to...

    150 years anniversary

    I don't know if this has been discussed, but as we have now entered the anniversary year of the club, does anybody know if something special has been planned? I mean apart from the obvious: Two visits to Wembley, winning the JPT trophy and getting promoted back to the Championship. ... oh...

    Where is he?

    Wouldn't it be fun if Hoffman suddenly turned up with investors in an attempt to buy the Higgs shares or even take over the entire ACL? If Hoffman really want to take over the club, that would be an interesting first move.

    It's all in your head ...

    Thorn got three league games, then he was sacked. Was that the wrong timing? Should he have had 10 more games to show what great squad he had assembled? Or should he have gone at the end of the season and let another manager assemble his own team? Nothing is ever 100% right or 100% wrong. So...

    The turn around ...

    I think a few were surprised to hear that the debts to sisu was converted into equity. It may also have come as a surprise that the overall losses are down to less than £3m/yr. Especially as the club lost a lot of income following relegation. Those two surprises may well be connected. Losing...

    77% households have internet access

    Source: http://www.ons.gov.uk/ons/rel/rdit2/internet-access---households-and-individuals/2011/stb-internet-access-2011.html This means there is quite a good chance that AT and his players have internet access and if they have they are probably reading this forum. I am just letting you know...

    The timing is amazing

    On the day when sisu are to meet with ACL to negotiate a rent reduction, Hoffmans group release the great news, that he is still working on taking over the club and part of the stadium. To add validity he is now working with an expert and focusing on chinese investors. Well, that's all very...

    Remote Control

    So, I watched again one of the terrific Derren Brown Experiment episodes called The Gameshow. He demonstrates how people - probably all nice and friendly individuals - together can form a mob taking control over another individual whom they have never met or seen before and make some very nasty...

    New CEO - still no chairman

    Tim Fisher has been appointed interim CEO, but there is still no sign of a new chairman. And I am a little confused about KD stepping down as chairman without a replacement ready to take over. It could be a sign of a dispute between KD and sisu. Remember Ranson was also moved aside but...
