sounds a step forward if "true" ? small word BIG meaning
someone must have a plan of sorts
unless your an idiot you dont chuck your money at a dead duck.
the thing is about the Boro the catchment area is massive compared to many of the minor clubs.
and yes i know we've heard all the counter arguments on here day in day out, year in year out.
but that is still a true fact.
engaging and harnessing it is the obvious problem... as we all know

If true this would probably help to answer why the club have been so quiet since the end of the season .
There are people who will say what's in it for him / her / them but there are people out there who just want to own / run or be involved in a football club and are prepared to pay out just for the pleasure .
I'm with you joe i'm prepared to take this as a positive until i know different . I suspect others won't but something has to change or we just face more of the same long term .

Yes, but history tells us to be sceptical and let actions speak (even then, taking into account the longer term).

I give you :- Joe Shooter, Ted Stocker, Nick Hawkins, Norman Smurfwait (or even Lee Thorn and others).
Most have contributed something (debatable) but many/all have had a negative effect on in the sort/medium term.

Smurf also has an "interesting" wikipedia profile that indicates he has common ground with one of our more vigorous posters:

"He is reportedly a keen football stadium floodlight and ground grading enthusiast, and discusses these issues comprehensively on a non league football forum."

must be honest Smurf was the first name i associated with the story
but discounted it immediately as i had no idea he had any inner Cov City connections whatsoever
would it be good or bad news if he came on board ?
i honestly dont know.
the views of some are already obvious
what i do know is we're talking NBFC here not a Chelsea
therefore a degree of realism has to be accepted on our situation
even so im certain ( many ) will disagree with my thoughts

ps. we cant all be a whiter than white FGR.

I think it's fairly well known that I am not one of those who has any kind of downer over Cov or anywhere else. Difficult to be that way when my family has roamed nomadically between there, Nuneaton and Beduff for what seems like the last 400 years.

I didn't care much for Smurf because of his previous reputation. But the Boro' have had plenty of positive links. Would it be wrong to mention Kirk Stephens for example, who played for both clubs, managed us and at least attempted some resurfacing work on that awful approach road?

Or the fact that Cully, Carl Baker, Gez, Jim Blyth and many more worked for both clubs?

Just saying-not trying to make any political points. FWIW I think a shared ownership might be a positive thing. I certainly can't see how 100% ownership has been an entirely positive experience. Although it did save the club. :)

So where would shared ownership leave the Supporters Co-op?

A 40% stake would leave JG, as major share-holder, some room for manouevre but a 49% stake would take the Supporters Co-op out of the equation.

I am more inclined to believe a 40% stake.

Having just read through that Wikipedia profile, here are a few facts:-

Norman Smurthwaite bought Port Vale for £1.25 million.

He subsequently sold the Club to the Shanahans for £3.50 million (?).

While at Port Vale, he tried to also buy Torquay United, until the EFL told him he couldn't own two clubs at once.

Since leaving Port Vale, he has reportedly tried to buy Notts County & then Bury, both unsuccessfully, before showing an interest in buying Wigan Athletic but an an adverse reaction from the Wigan fans steered him away from that idea!

He clearly is still maybe looking to buy a football club, or that's what that Wiki profile highlights.

Remember the uncertainly the summer. The meeting at Liberal club when the future was uncertain. New club at Griff (or below) level was a possibility.

IMO what would (or would not) happen under Smurthwait is pure conjuncture BUT his reputation went before him. The problem was he could not be involved in two clubs.....stupid for him to try and be involved.

There was no power to the ground and he did bring in a manager (I think) and two decent loan signings from Port Vale. In fact, in many ways the squad looked okay and no where as bad as the season implied.

Yes Gustavus, the decisions taken by Ian Neale have been instrumental in taking us to the position we now find ourselves in...

BUT

It is my view, that if we had properly assessed the budget available to build the Liberty Way football/rugby ground at 'Day One' & we had built a more modest Stadium, that would have still complied with the FA's Membership Rules for the National League & we had not built what we have now, perhaps Ian Neale could have been paid up in full & he would not have needed to take ownership of the football club?

We could have started with a different approach to the design & built a 500-seater Main Stand first & reduced the scale of the other structures to suit, with less covered terracing, less open terracing & more flat standing.

So, in my oponion, we have to look beyond Ian Neale for what has happened, to the people making the decisions at the time.

Ian Neale was only appointed as the Main Contractor to carry out the works.

Furthermore, if we had only initially built a Stadium suitable for Membership of the National League North, with the potential for expansion, the ground capacity would only have needed to be 3000.

He has also put £1 million & then a further £500k into the Club out of his own pocket to cover playing budget shortfalls & claims Port Vale fans' protests cost the Club a £500k Stadium sponsorship deal.

He has appointed some good Managers in his time at Port Vale, including the current Wales boss Rob Page.

I agree with you MP23, he would probably want to buy the Club in its entirety?

He stated when he sold LW that he was selling because he had assumed that when JG took control of the Boro he would then sell the club to him, when JG didn’t do so he said he was selling the ground as no point in having it without the club, seems unlikely that if JG didn’t sell to him then that he would sell him a share of the club now.

His company Falcon Alliance own/operate out of a cheap guset house on Glentworth Crescent in Skeggie, very odd.

As you say, very odd.
Nothing wrong with Skegvegas if you ignore the state of the roads, but not known as a destination for high flyers.

You learn from history and (or supposed to).

Boro having played Brentford and Watford and QPR years ago means nothing in 2022.

engaging and harnessing it is the obvious problem...

Loved this bit summed up in one sentence the biggest task any football club faces . Getting the word out to the masses and achieving the elusive feel good factor is as important ( almost ) as results in attracting in the fans .

i have heard nothing on this only what has been posted on here
i tried to be positive but as ever cautious without any facts to go on
however im certain the usual suspects will be out in force once again
you know what .... if certain posters post ONE positive thought about this club
it will be their first and im going back to 2007.
and im not kidding either.
