Both of you are ignoring my point though. I've said it's fine for people to abstain for whatever reason they deem fit. Neither of you have hurt the club in any way by doing so.

 

But my point remains. Ten thousand or so have not voted and I would hazard a guess that the vast majority have done so for no other reason than apathy. Is this not a cause for concern come next year and renewals crunch time ?

Future renewals? The team should plan properly with the money they have been given, and be greatful for any number of future renewals above 0. They have more money now than ever, and they are not hemmoraging cash anymore. What if nobody gives them any money next year, then they will have to do business like every other football team. I am just tired of criticism from people on this board. I root for The Fleet now, and I am a recent recruit. it seems there are some "long time fans" that hope they fail.

I paid 35 pounds (don't have that capital L like symbol on my keyboard) to support a team and vote on anything I feel strongly about, and since I don't know which of the last 5 kits the fans favor, I did not vote on the newest one. I will renew, but I hope that fans will be grateful for that. You know that I don't really get anything for it...not even a t-shirt that says "I gave my 35pounds to a non-league English football team and all I got was this t-shirt". I will root for The Fleet. That Is how I will get my money's worth.

Once the six-figure sum for the purchase is taken out, while there is still a sizeable chunk left, it'll all be gone very very quickly if future renewals aren't forthcoming. And there's the fact that it is a well-quoted fact on MyFC that there is a minimum level of renewal needed to sustain the project. And it's a long way from zero.

And as for your final point, the club is still losing each month what it was losing before - that hasn't magically vanished into thin air (though as perhaps decreased with extra people on the gate and cup runs).

Leroix, you seem to be too sensitive to people having a go at MyFC. Of course people are, it's a new and revolutionary project with no track record of success, it's going to be scrutinised every step of the way. That's natural, it's not necessarily criticism. People at this club want to make sure it's in good hands, regardless of your boundless generosity which individually is only £35, far less than most people on here have put in over years and years. That's why there are questions. True, some people on here won't ever bring themselves to like the idea, but most of us can see the good and bad points.

Would you rather have everyone vote in even if they do not feel strongly either way. Go kick your dog or something, but don't take it out on the people that bailed out your football team. Show some respect. Appologize and beg for forgiveness.


Rattled ya have I? Love the way the stock "bail out your football team" answer is your reply. I can think of something much more deserving of a good kicking tbh.

So, only half of your members take part in your votes - and I have no respect?

I will NEVER apologise (thats with an 's') for MY opinions...

Whilst I am sure we all appreciate the relief from debt, new members cannot possibly imagine how annoying it it to be faced with yet another new kit, so soon after our present one. 13 new kits in 8 years is it?
For you newbies it is no big deal. You can get your first Fleet shirt.
For us "ordinary fans on the terrace , it has become beyond a joke.
The benefits of the Nike deal would appear to be in the order of £100,000, but I wonder how many of the new shirts will be worn at the ground, so soon after the Austrian Airlines and Eurostar Jako shirts?
Perhaps MYFC could vote to subsidise the new shirts by £25 if you part exchange an old Fleet shirt? Serious question.

The job of planning is now in MyFC hands, the team just play the game

Thankfully, the more sensible of MyFC members dont agree with you on this being a one year wonder

This is why i don't post here. I plan to go to a game someday and meet some real fans. Fans that know there are more employees for a football team than just players. People that don't make up numbers just to back up their bitter assertions, and will be grateful for all future renewals. I bought a jersey and coffee mug. I joined the fleet Trust, and I will renew with MYFC again. Now I am off to find a forum where people actually talk about football instead of flinging bitter insults. There will be no reply to Patman's future indications of his disabilities.

These are the same people who will be given the chance to select the team, without ever having seen them play.


There is absolutely no knowledge required to make a personal choice between the kit options put forward imo. Taste maybe, knowledge no. So not voting on the deal because not enough information was forthcoming but stating a preference for which kit he preferred is perfectly reasonable.

To then trot out the same tired old phrases and piss off a few more visitors to the site and potential fans seems counterproductive. Unless, of course, I have mislaid the magic knowledge that is the pre-requisite to making a choice between red, blue or green.

Serious answer - that's not a bad idea whatsoever... Not too sure how much the trade-in would be, but once we know how much the new shirts are, we can determine a fair price.

And with the old shirts, we can send them off to those charities or, if someone parts with a really old one, keep for posterity...

After the Takeover was approved by MYFC. I invested so that I could see what they were saying and have my say.

 

This forum is always my primary source of opinion.

 

I voted for the Nike deal as I could see no alternative based on everthing I had read. I also voted for a home kit. I didn't vote for an away kit, as I don't like any of them and have said so on MYFC.

 

I have suggest on MYFC that they should give you the option be able to abstain and at least show you have a view, rather than simply you haven't because you didn't vote.

If they were to do that, it would just prove the minority are making the decisions!
