    To give the SBT their due, on the face of it, this sounds a bit more pragmatic than some of their previous publications. That said, I can't see the actual event turning into anything more than a chance for the Jimmy Hill Way types of this world to drone on about the same old historic events.

    That said, another march, one to perhaps coincide with a Wasps home match would be a good idea imo.

    Has any CCFC fans forum/open meeting ever achieved anything?

    Serious question. Do we ever find anything out? Does anything ever get done? Is it all just a way to make us feel like we’re useful? Is this the real life?

    It won't end up going down that road and we'll make it clear from the start that is the case. If anyone can not make it please email in your suggestions/thoughts to [email protected].

    I assume you mean if we can't make the meeting, rather than if we've got suicidal thoughts over the whole issue... ;)

    tbf what else can they do? They put out a poorly worded (IMHO) statement not so long ago, but this is an opportunity to feed back for us all.

    Do I expect the world to change? Not really. Do I think this is the kind of thing the Trust should be doing? Probably.

    All due respect they would be better off clubbing together and buying a rake of lottery tickets. If they get a winner they can get together with someone and make an offer to Joy. Meetings arent going to do fook all unless they twist Wasps arm to change their mind.

    I dunno. I’m just sick of it all playing out in the same ineffectual way. It’s no ones fault, just all feels like theatre on all sides.

    Everyone going through the same motions and it’ll probably end up in another short term deal, if not then things change and we might see some use for all this.

    Right now what can anyone involved do here? Wasps and SISU aren’t about to host one and ask for fans input, neither give a toss. They’ll do whatever they see as in their best interests and we aren’t big enough to feature on either’s radar.

    Wish I could just fast forward to the end TBH.

    Well why not do that Rob, video it and post it on here for our amusement.
    Its amazing, people slagging the Trust off for having an open meeting about the bloody Ricoh.
    I do nt agree with the stance they are taking and do think everyone should be blamed for the mess we re in not just Sisu
    (who I wish would whither and die) but also the Council and franchise Wasps.
    Maybe, if people went to the meeting and told the Trust in no uncertain terms what they want, they may see sense.

    I mean fine if it’s just a displacement activity. But I’m just saying it’s not going to do anything more than literally anything else.

    Jesus that’s not far off what it will achieve. We just need old Lego head to report outside whilst someone pisses up his leg as he had to many pints earlier.

    Will megaphones be provided or should we just prepare our vocal cords to shout sisu out as loud as we can?

    Except they don't have an open meeting they have a closed one topic agenda to feather their own self importance and half of them don't even go to the games. They have nonce sympathiser from Rochdale on the board for good measure too and pretend to represent a much greater number than they actually do. You crack on there and enjoy yourself, I'll continue backing the lads home and away instead.

    They won’t do that, they haven’t the balls or intellect to stand up in public One thing sat behind a keyboard at home with your tea and biscuits yahooing, different ball game to say it live.

    Yup. I think I will also stop voting for the Green Party because they will never get into power. Athletes who never get past 6th or 7th place should also maybe stop competing too. ;)

    I think after a few years of trying it's past the point of asking them to see sense.

    Like Fernando says, a good idea but will be a platform for some spin to be put out to get everybody worked up.

    Not sure if that's directed at me but I have both and would happily tell them and you, simply can't be arsed to waste my time attending a futile meeting headed by people I don't trust or believe in. I hope that's ok for you but I will be at the game today if you'd like to discuss further

    No it wasn’t I apologise because reading it back looks like it could have been but there are plenty who come on here slating the Trust and how they do things this is a prime opportunity to state their case. I’m not a Trust member by the way but have attended a couple of their open meetings the last being the one Fisher was present, now that was enlightening

    Can’t you back the lads home and away and go to the Trust meeting? How do you know that half of them don’t go to games?

    when that statement was made a trust representative was interviewed and said he won't attend until SISU go. We all hate them but the past few years has taught us that they don't care what we think so our only contribution can be to back what they do on the park. They'll go when they're ready and it won't be before every possible angle of court cases has been extinguished.

    Don’t think not going to matches because of sisu achieves anything to be honest, you don’t have to buy merchandise or food imo you are just spiteing yourself.
