Welcome back to Keith Scott and Jim Melvin

Good first signing with bully solid keeper!! I wonder if he will be the first of a few old wefc signing now Keith is the gaffer???

 

 

I wouldn't call him solid, he was certainly carrying a few pounds overweight when he played for us last season ;)

 

 

Should be a good signing IF he can get back to his pre-injury condition.

Max Clifford by any chance.

 

 

Surely you mean Max Factor, Smudger ?

Just been on the phone to one of the people walking away from the club. This must be the coldest welcome to a football club ever with most of the behind the scenes helpers walking out in protest and fans who've gone home and away for years talking about stopping. Kevin Stott if you care for the club you'd think again. Sounds like the soul has been ripped out!

As an outsider, Woody, I think your being childish and pathetic.

 

If a manager says to the Chairman, give me the funds and I will get us promotion, who's fault is it if the Chairman says yes to that request and then the club goes bust? Every manager up and down the country asks his Chairman for more money and most get turned down because they can't afford it. It's called being a responsible Chairman who's looking after the best interests of the club.

 

There's only one person to blame for your demise and he is no longer involved with Windsor FC.

That's very sad but it's a time for change and if people can't embrace Kevin's vision for for the future and support the decisions he makes to protect his investment and nurture the new club he has formed then it's probably best they do walk away from their historical roles.

 

Oh well, onwards and upwards I say.

I am an outsider too and i simply cannot work out why a chairman would throw away years of experience in helping the club and more importantly money from fans who go to the events and home and away for a manager. I didn't mind Keith Scott as a person and have no idea why people have walked out. It's one huge mess when this had the first chance the club/new club had of a fresh start and everyone pulling the same way!

I think Windsor FC supporters should say a big thank-you to Keith Scott for taking up the challenge to manage a club at step 5 with only a few weeks to form a squad from scratch. I'm pretty certain he could have taken a much easier job further up the leagues.

Always amazes me that old chestnut it was' The Chairman's Fault 'That a Club goes into Liquidation.Do Clubs not have Committee's to oversee Finances and the running of the Club.I suppose, that the previous Chairman did not walk away with a Handsome Profit,from the money he invested into the Club.more like a Huge Loss.Living the Dream it is called,and whilst victory on the pitch makes him popular,everyone is Happy,when it goes bandy it is all his fault.

Correct.

 

 

He's the man with the purse strings who rubber stamps any money to be spent.

 

 

As far as Windsor having a committee to oversee finances, I doubt it, but there again I don't know so you'll have ask someone like Windsor Sec or Mel.

Smudge, I think you are being a little naive if you think that club finances are discussed by committee. You may have a couple of directors and an accountant who try to manage them, but generally this is not an area that is discussed openly and to be honest probably rightly so. Directors who have a financial commitment have a right to make the decisions about how to spend the money - I don't suggest that they get it right, and too often they think with their hearts not their heads ( and remember most chairman are successful business men) and get carried away with it

 

I hope that Kevin has learnt the lesson and will have a strong control on expenditure

Eddie ..reading rebel.... I think you need to keep out of Windsor's affairs ... I am sure the supporters of Windsor know whats going on within their club better.

 

all is not so clear to the outsiders... There are some supporters not happy at the return of the ex manager... they need to resolve the issue and get on with getting their season started.

 

 

good luck to all....

Coming back from holiday I was delighted to find we have a skilled and experienced manager proven at this level. I'd feared far worse. Having some really good former players willing to return, at this lower level, is an absolute bonus.

 

Now I don't pretend to have had any idea what was going on financially with WEFC, or the behind the scenes politics and arrangements that led to the former club's demise - but I'm pretty damn confident that Kevin WAS aware, at least more than anyone else here. So if he as the primary backer feels the Colonel is the best choice, I can't see why anyone else would think they know better or have more of a stake in the decision.

 

Of course, I'm delighted to find we have so many outstandingly moral citizens as supporters, and disappointed that they feel the need to have public sulking fits withdraw their support as a point of principle. I do hope they remember that this is a new club, founded from scratch - with a potential fanbase, sure, but without staff team, ground or league place. Or history. It's not as though WFC has obtained special advantage from the previous (over)spending of WEFC. So I don't quite know what the principle is about which they're protesting...

I have to agree....we all have opinions but to walk away from what is a fantastic opportunity is illogical. I hear the fixtures are due out about the 25th July so wont be long now before the big kick off!

There is a committee, and it's been in place since the new club was formed. I believe it meets every other week. The action points seem to be never-ending, but that's the challenge. It takes commitment and time to get involved in the meetings and take on roles and responsibilities (still trying to discover what le chef did in that respect, but no matter now). They seem determined to make it work.

 

Welcome back Keith and Jim!
