    If nothing else it keeps the stadium situation in the public eye I suppose?

    I'd love to know how the Trust are "working to assist in finding a solution to the current impasse".
    Have they asked Wasps why they still insist on the indemnity clause?

    Just without the whole truth being mentioned (again) where are the calls for wasps to drop the indemnity clause and be open themselves?

    So they’ve basically said what are the club doing to get us back, oh hello wasps and the council. Like a metaphorical wave.

    Not one single word to the effect of ‘all parties are twats and should stop’.

    They are truly inept.

    Why the fuck are the media still giving these twats airtime. They dont represent the fans. They represent a small clique who show up for a pint in the pub now and again. Clowns.

    This is my favourite bit...

    Bizarrely, it has been suggested by the club and some supporters, that the Trust is trying to damage the club....

    ...However, we believe that supporter involvement is essential to the future of the club going forward and lack of transparency is detrimental to that.

    I wonder who at "the club" has suggested that, I hope someone has finally told them to do one as they aren't being helpful

    @CJ_covblaze can you comment on that specific bit please?

    Standard reminder that you can raise a motion for the Trust AGM and vote by proxy. Would just take a small amount of organisation and a well formed motion (insert fibre joke here) to force some change.

    They certainly don’t speak for me or the majority of fans, never have I heard such one sided tripe in all my life. Asking for transparency from the club on CWR, how about you ask your mates at the council for transparency on all their dodgy deals regarding the Ricoh over the years. For once Ricky was right, give it to Juggy and his team. He sure speaks for me more than any other of those council/wasps stooges.

    Wtf do they keep quoting 2700 members? We all joined at tge start when they were worthwhile and thought we were possibly going under, to help have a fans voice. That was 10 years back now and only a fraction still represented. Active members aporox 100 I'd guess. Simple way would be to introduce annual membership but they're scared to rather than use the funds for the good of the club as they know barely anyone would join up and they like to pretend they represent a greater voice.

    Whilst I don't speak for Juggy, he wouldn't want it. His philosophy, the same as mine, is back the lads and leave all the politics rubbish to others. It serves no purpose, all parties only pay lio service and it generates unnecessary division. The ONLY way we can help the club is by attending and supporting the team when they play.

    I know he probably wouldn’t want it, but the point still remains. It’s time for this knights of the round table and jobs for the boys mentality to go.

    Have you written to them asking for you to be removed from the membership and had a acknowledgement back that they have done it ?

    If everyone who is a “member” and disagrees does this, it will not only reduce that number, but also show that their beliefs are representative of the majority of its current members

    Do you think they are bothered about that? What percentage of members are represented based on their last meeting?

    Has anyone got the drive, or the time to start a different group that seems more in touch with fans?

    Personally, yes. A fan group which fans don’t support isn’t worth anything. Based on most people’s comments, would it be fair to assume they are arrogant enough to assume that they are currently representing the views of all 2700 members ?

    Surely anyone who is a paid up member and doesn’t agree with their approach would want to detract from them ?

    Each to their own, but no chance would
    I want my name on any list they have as members

    Who on SBT is a member and agrees with what they say? I can't recall anyone here, other than CJ being a supporter of the trust?

    Surely SBT is the biggest platform for City fans to share opinion these days?
