It’s all a pipe dream. For it to happen there would need to still be a group of main investors that sit at the top table making the important decisions. Votes could be passed down on certain topics to the smaller investors but you literally can’t vote on everything and certain decisions would need to be made on the fly. It’s a nice idea but I just don’t see how it would work.

It is a non starter

 

1) we would never raise enough money to buy the club

 

2) we would not have enough to run the club

 

3) it would be a shambles. Votes, committees, power struggles, etc....

 

 

You mean like at Barcelona, Real Madrid, Bayern Munich and most  other successful clubs abroad.

 

On cost, will be dirt cheap soon as ,so skint, trying to sell Windass for two bob to pay wages.

 

Just like Pompey fans did  few years ago to save their club, we will need to rescue Owls.

 

And following a recent in depth analysis of our finances, Podcaster and Statman Peter Lohman has now concluded that a fan share offer is only way forward.

 

And could sign quality players this month. Just like we did with Terry Curran etc after last Owls fan share offer. Lift off.

Well if Peter Lohman has concluded it (not heard of him so had to google).

Has he concluded how to financially fund the inevitable losses.

Maybe because they have a good owner and system of management that works for them.

Today, Peter is again tweeting for Chansiri to offer shares to fans for only way forward.

 

Ominously, Nixon tweeting today bigger issues than new manager - either new signings or cash flow probably.

 

Of course, our club was built on fan share offers ----  Originals to get going, A shares to build Hillsborough , debentures to fund new North stand B shares to rescue club and pay for Terry Curran , Mellor et al ......leading to two promotions.

 

All had incentives and the A shares let holder  and  either an accompanying lady or child have seats in old South Stand. For life.

And also Barca are nearly a billion in debt - so they are hardly the paragon of virtue financial wise that is being pushed as the panacea.

Don't know if it's been said many times before , but the last time the fans got what they wanted, we ended up with Jordan Rhodes. 

 

I know our fan base, I know how controversial any supporters trust or fans group have been. 

 

Definite no from me .

As forecast here, we have bid for Cosgrove now but can't afford the £3 million.

 

Just what we need , and a Yorkie, will be worth £10 million soon.

 

Let's have a share offer to fans to fund our lift off. With votes and incentives.
