    Interesting that the Facebook fans forum is slowly starting to turn on the trust.

    Also updated there banner to London wasps not welcome flag.

    The thing is, even though he is pretty much OTT with all that crap at least he bothers with the club which is more than can be said for a lot of them. Isn't he involved with the walking football and former players etc etc?

    Compare that to the Roger Ellis types along with those strange accounts.

    Yeah I’ve been sent that. If you look at the page when you ask to join it states that users can’t upload other peoples posts yet they’ve happily uploaded any picture as their banner and I’m not even on Facebook myself

    I put it on there the other day Pete and had a couple of positive comments and a number of likes. No angry face emoji things or negative comments to be fair.

    Have the Trust distanced them from those accounts yet or are they still retweeting them?

    They can't say I didn't try to warn them how it would end up making them look bad.

    Maybe they should listen to actual fans rather than Roger Ellis and David Johnson?

    It isn't a new appointment is it? He's been involved for ages.

    This issue has been pointed out already and ignored.

    They don't give a shit, the same as when I pointed out about those strange social media accounts and how they should distance themselves ASAP. Now everybody can see those social media accounts for what they are and link the trust with them it looks bad on them.

    We all know the trust members have wasps season tickets for the upcoming season, it was the round of applause that did it

    How is this only now all over the Facebook forum when I've seen it mentioned on here for months if not years? People are acting like it's breaking news.

    There is real doublethink going on about the trust on the Facebook group. Ellis has been involved for ages but because the members were focusing on sisu it wasn’t an issue but now many accept other parties are at fault they are getting tangled up about something that’s been the case for ages.

    Don’t get me wrong I’m happy the trust are getting it as they’ve been far too shot for far too long but it just shows how easily people are swayed by a few statements.

    What I think is fair to say at this case (and what should be the criteria for judging whether he's fit to be a board member) is that the story in this instance is about operational procedures, and it by no means implicates him in the scandal directly. It's more an argument that as head of the organisation, he should have been more aware of what was going on. It's a sin of omission.

    Sure that's obvious, but should be emphasised!

    Yeah it's not new news. He's been involved for years.

    I think people might have seen the list of names put forward from the board and got it from there or something?

    People have been too busy with the "at least they are doing something" nonsense when anything has been pointed out previously.

    Ironic really when board members in the trust don't seem to have a clue about fellow board members.

    Trust response to Tim Fisher
    Poll: The trust - fit for purpose?

    It was played down / ignored the same as when I have also pointed things out. They don't give a shit, they will just try and bullshit their way out of it.

    TBF, it's the same thing that annoys me about various parties in this story, the focus is too often on individuals and not the issues at hand. The Trust, for example, has constantly focused on Fisher or Seppalla without thinking that eventually that approach rebounds.

    Yeah, happy to accept that cuts both ways. it's the same as when there was the campaign to remove Richardson - we still had McGinnity and Robinson there, after all!

    It looks like the appointments still have to be approved by the AGM

    Election of Board members, 2019
    By the closing date for nominations, 22 June 2019, six valid nominations for vacant positions on the Board of the Trust had been received, from:
    Dave Eyles
    Andy Fletcher
    David Johnson
    CJ Joiner
    Tim Kalns
    Neil White
    As there are six vacancies, each of the candidates nominated will be proposed to be elected to the Board by the AGM on Monday 15 July 2019.

    I don't know what would happen if the members who attend vote against any of them.

    It might be part of the reason lies Reid and the others obsess about putting yourself and skybluestalk in general down on social media. A lot of facts on here such as Ellis and the takeover attempt were brought out into the light fairly early. Trust members may well read the posts, then get on twitter trying to discredit the source with their parody and faceless accounts. The fanbase seems to be catching up and catching on though now.

    That's exactly why they do it, they hope that nobody will listen because they make out people on here work for SISU etc.

    Is there not a way for the vast majority of trust members to vote then?

    I guess that suggestion was also ignored. Wonder why?

    The funniest thing is, none of you can actually see it and think you all do a great job patting each other on the back and cuddling Blackpool fans.

    Doubt the trust would go with a vote if it didn’t go Johnsons, or Ellis’ way anyway

    "Turn up"

    It's a fucking joke. What would you do if all 20k people were trying to get in to the meeting. Absolute farce organisation.
