It's as simple as everyone believing that something big is happening, and people wanting to be part of it. It has to be driven by someone everyone knows has done it before.Torquay Exile wrote: November 12th, 2023, 10:10 amGive me, and others an example of how you think that Huw Jenkins, could guide The Trust in the right direction?Bangitintrnet wrote: November 12th, 2023, 6:44 amNo person gains anything, but a struggling group like the supporters club, could be custodians of the NCAFC shares. There have been active groups in the past raising hundreds of thousands, such as the lifeline society, Bar Amber and the Over the bridge Exiles, that no longer have a purpose, and are no longer active.Torquay Exile wrote: November 12th, 2023, 12:44 amBangitintrnet wrote: November 11th, 2023, 8:06 pmThat is exactly the point, the Trust needs new members to join for a purpose, not find reasons for existing members to keep up subscriptions.Amberexile wrote: November 11th, 2023, 6:03 pmWe will have a trust for whatever purpose the members decide they want their trust to fulfil.

What's very tedious, is the continuous line that the trust is only good for racking up debt and being bailed out. It simply isn't true, but by repeating the same line time and time again, it becomes folklore.
As HJ knows his biggest problem to surmount, is negativity.
However, I do see one person repeatedly calling for the Trust to be closed down with indecent haste.
If there is no driver to join then it dies. What I don't want is HJ to believe, but the Trust membership to not believe. If that happens you end up with a membership believing that the trust is there simply to bail out when it goes pear shaped, which is the negativity that needs to cease if we are ever to progress. If people don't want to join with the obvious optimism of HJ, then why have a trust?
I myself, and many others have had lots of ideas on how the Trust could work in the long term. But you and others seem to want the trust to simply disappear. Why? I have asked myself many times, I have come up with many answers for which I would like share with everyone else. Then of course you will try and discredit me and others will do the same, all because you and the others have something to gain from the trust too just simply disappear from the scene.
If the trust doesn't see itself as now being under HJ's guidance, then it doesn't even have a purpose as a bridge to future supporters...........
The alternative is no no, we know best...........
That isn't a very good example. We are not Swansea City. So what you are really saying is, you haven't got a clue how The Trust should move on?
