I'm fully aware that everything's got to checkout , but if it does there's probably never going to be a better chance for the co-op to gain representation on the board . To be honest if they can't find 10k under these circumstances they might as well pack up .

tbf aa whoever gets involved has to consider the fact that its not a one off payment its an annual 'subscription'
looking at it in simple terms they have to raise a minimum of 200 quid a week

They do but if the co op have let's say 300 members ( no idea what they actually have ) that's less than a £1 per member per week . As i've said elsewhere if the membership aren't prepared to support that then i'm afraid , well you know the rest .

it’s going to be down to the structure and owners of the club but it’s MY OPINION that the coop would not need to find that in that having supporters representation, what supporters pay and what supporters volunteer is worth a lot.

Not phrased well.

If the co-op wants to be on equal footing probably does need to pay equal share

I think it is important for a fans group to gave a proper shareholding in the club, rather than just a donated seat at a table.

I am all for owning shares, just this "£x,000/year" to have a seat at the table I am unsure about.

If this means £x,000/year to own shares then how is pulling out managed.

Also, what if the 100 shares are not allocated (ten * 10 I guess).
Someone needs to own them. I believe they can be owned by the company, but who owns the company.

I think this proposal is a nice idea on the face of it; it may work, but needs some thought. I don't have a the answers

If all 10% chunks are sold, if any of the 20 fo t want to put in the next year, they lose the shares.
That is how I think it will work.
A full prospectus will be available to interested parties.
I think Jimmy Ginnelly owns the company at the moment.
I think everyone knows there are Qs, hopefully whoever's is trying to bring people in has got answers.

mmm not so sure about those sentiments
you could argue that an individual should not pay in the full amount because he pays for say advertising
or buys corporate hospitality.
personally i think it has to be set up on an equal footing
if only for the reason that you are part owner of the club and not just a sponsor/backer if you get my drift on this one.
cheers.

I understand

I would hope clubs welcome supporters on board irrespective of financial commitment - many progressive clubs have.

One fear with this is the coop/supporters over committed and/or over optimistic with finances - many instances of this both with trusts and football owners (I give you the last owner)

That’s another argument

Mine is...
(Rough figures - for illustration )
600 gate paying average of £10 for 21 games that’s £126,000

Football is unique with customer loyalty.

Just my view - I don’t see supporter representative in terms of £££££s

Another eg - if coop has to raise this money they would either be in competition with the club or withdraw help at the moment.

Never said it could - In fact I have been consistent that SL-Central is (at best) Boro could survive at without cash injection.

However, your point sort of backs up my view. if supporters are putting in 50% of finances then why not get these loyal customers on board without guaranteed financial commitment.

I think there are two different things here.
1, sort ownership of the club
2, a fans rep director.

The two things, imo, are not the same.

Fans should always be pushing for a fan on the board, over and above any shareholding.

The money is available to purchase the shares already, it's sustaining that over the years, and ensuring that the arrangement is right.

Fully understand that and was not a criticism of the co op .
I should have phrased it , if the membership are not prepared to support them under these circumstances they might as well pack up . How many members do you currently have ?

last comment. that is a good point
i think more would join if they went ahead with their participation
also > IMO < 200 members at a £ a week gets you there.
might well be other factors involved but im just talking basic figures here.

I don't have loads of disposable income but if they want me to commit to £1 per week to hopefully save my club and get some sort of fan representation within the chambers of power , i'm in .Surely they can find 199 others amongst our fan base who would do the same . As i've said before they might never get a better or cheaper chance to do this .

£10K per season for a10% share in the club in reality does that mean Co-op or anyone else needs to find £20k in 5 months 10k this season to get us out the mess we are in and 10K July time for next season.

We need to clear the debt pdq, and then have a fighting fund for next season.
I think it'll be first payment now, the again each July to get ready for next season.
