    Hilarious, this one has made me wee! I like how you ask about a "Sick joke" and then follow it with a "shit joke" :)

    It is shocking that people would insinuate and hint at legal action because they don't like something said about them, isn't it Michael ;)

    I also like this one:

    I don't know, why do you?

    No, it is somebody making up silly jokes ;) If it was a funny one about SISU I would laugh :)

    It is the fact that this line:

    Makes it OK to send an email out clearly anti sisu but that makes it not anti sisu. It is like when you hear somebody say "I'm not racist but..." or something like that. Now, you will have your opinion and it is fine if it is Anti SISU, but you always seem to take the moral highground above these "anti" people.

    Now, I am not saying Michael is racist before any solicitors get their knickers in a twist.

    Good luck to the new business / shop though! :)

    What do you call a person who makes a promise but doesn't deliver?

    A lying postman ?

    Not sure when or how it suddenly became terrible to be anti-SISU and everyone got so concerned about appearing "balanced" ? Regardless of any preceding history or actions of others they have been an unmitigated disaster - particularly the lack of any positive or conciliatory action whatsoever since the move . The other factors provide some context to their shiteness that's all - not an excuse.

    No, it is fine to be anti sisu, people are entitled to their opinion and of course it will be like that.

    It is just when they go on and on about not being ;) Also when they keep going on about how people "shouldn't be" anti or pro anybody.

    What will happen now is somebody will post "Do you think SISU are good for the club?" in which most people will say "No" and that means everybody fully agrees with everything KCIC has ever said or written.

    Sometimes it seems that the pro / anti labels have become more important than the points which are actually being discussed. Lack of any real movement and frustration all round is fraying tempers (understandably)

    Any chance of a substantive counter argument that addresses the key points in the mailout?

    And "I don't know, why do you?" was the sort of thing my kids said when they were primary school age!

    Was that the same sort of time they were making up silly jokes like kids do? ;)

    I would address the key points but I can't actually see any actual points? If you could point them out I'd be happy to reply, it just looks like a news roundup? :)

    Just find it amazing how you are mailing out about other people with legal action and being anti SISU. Fair play to you if you are anti SISU, just embrace it rather than trying to hide it!

    The best news is a new startup business in Coventry, fair play to them!

    Does Nick always have a meltdown now when someone says anything against Sisu?

    Its not like they have led the club to the shittiest point in our history over the course of 6 years is it? FFS Nick have a reality check.

    As to Michael and KCIC they have been by far the most active group in trying to organise and nationally publicise our situation as CCFC fans and Michael has come on here many times to put his position and indeed to encourage others to clarify theirs. Credit to him for that.

    I had assumed readers would recognise that the following sentence from the mailout is an invitation to people who criticise the kcic strategy to suggest a better one - if the wording was unclear then I'm sorry: "why [do] some people criticise the kcic strategy - of campaigning for sisu to write off their losses on the debt-laden worthless asset that is now CCFC, remember to do proper due diligence in future and hand over the Club for a fresh start with a fan-led ownership model - but they don't suggest a better strategy?" You are incredibly skilled in avoiding answering questions, and I take my hat off to you for that, but all that is required here is for you to set out your suggested strategy (kcic's is only one sentence and that's all that's required). Simples!

    Mine is:

    "Win the euromillions and go crazy!"

    Hope that is better for you :) I put in my own strategy for you, it is just as likely to happen and I don't even need to make a slogan for it.

    [serious]

    If you are calling for the fans to be handed the club, I think you should also call for the fans to be handed the Ricoh. Get them both together again.

    Call to be the middle man, go between ACL and SISU to get their offers and call each others bluff.

    What do you propose will happen if SISU say here is the club, have it? Who will run it? Who will fund it? Who will pay the losses?

    How do you propose you will make SISU hand the club over for free to the fans?

    [\serious]

    Avoiding questions? Ask me a question and I will answer it, happily! I am still waiting for replies on a couple of PM's sent to you months ago with questions in with no answers.

    If you want serious replies, stop sending things out which people won't take seriously with awful jokes, or at least put the jokes at the bottom and the serious stuff at the top else people stop reading. Simples!

    If I had a melt down every time somebody said anything about them, I would be in rehab wouldn't I? :)

    Reality Check about what? I am struggling to find a post where I have said SISU are so great, I love them.

    I just think it is funny when people keep going on and on about SISU trying to get legal action against fans because of 1 cease and desist when fans and other parties have been at it a lot more (but we don't mention that, do we? ;) ).

    "Ask me a question and I will answer it, happily!" - ok, you are critical of kcic's strategy so what is your better strategy?

    Did you read my post? I put a strategy in there?

    In all seriousness, I wouldn't bother trying to get anything from SISU for free, sending out emails isn't going to make them do anything. No matter how well meaning it is, it won't go anywhere :( (my opinion)

    City fans don't seem to be arsed, look at the petition as an example. We had over 30,000 at the Crewe game but how many can be arsed to sign a 2 minutes form online?

    I don't think much will happen before the JR. My campaign at the minute would be trying to unearth as many truths as possible to find out what exactly what happened (from all sides, from the past). There is no way SISU / ACL / CCC are going to talk at the minute.

    I would have a massive spade and I would be digging. I would then leak them under a false name on a website hosted in a random country where laws meant they couldn't be taken down ;) CCFC Wikileaks.

    I would be listening to anybody who wanted to talk at me, no matter how much BS I thought it was and trying to take everything in to get it out there. At the minute I don't think anything will make the parties talk so the fans at least need to know whats going on.

    Whether it is SISU, ACL, CCC, old regime who are fault or if it is 99% one side and 1% the other, just dig all the shite up. I personally think that is all that can be done at the minute, it is down to the head honchos and their big game of poker.

    At least if more people knew what was going on, it might bring the fans together a bit.

    Sorry, I was still typing. Even so, you still managed to quote some bits where I answered so I am not sure what your point is? Why is it priceless?

    Did I not answer the question with both a sarcastic and a serious answer?

    It probably is a shit idea, but you asked what I would do :)

    You see I do admire your skills including editing your comments retrospectively! Your post goes down as the second funniest I've ever read on here, bettered only by shmme's one about only people with qualifications in statistics should be allowed to comment on the results of surveys.

    This thread appears to have developed into a conflict of characters. While you are both obviously coming from different sides, and debate is healthy, let's chill out.

    Nobody in this story saga has achieved anything but Kcic are at least making an effort to keep our plight in the public domain.

    Who would have thought that struggling to get thirty blokes to the steps of the council house on a Saturday would have made the shouty CCC are to blame for everything lot so aggressive towards the man who arranged one of the largest and so far most public protest (namely, the why and when campaign at Arsenal).

    You'd think they'd be more concerned about the up and coming election campaign.

    Or the fact I pressed submit before I had finished... It isn't hard to edit, you just press the edit button so not really a skill.

    You asked a question and I gave you a reply, so what is your point?

    I am a bit gutted I missed out to Schmeee but we were both dropouts of comedy school :( I also was a dropout of the spelling class where we learnt his name because without looking it up I have no idea how many ee's.

    Who me? Protest was nothing to do with me. I was getting some tyres fitted and reading Hill's post about drinking Newcastle Brown Ale.

    I can't see anything aggressive?
