They keep saying “this has been in the works for four years” etc etc 

 

Proper lightbulb moment “I know! Let’s ask for money!”

:lol: For fucks sake man. So they’d need acceptance by Ashley, buy in from any potential new owner, and possibly some type of test by the PL(?) all for what would surely be a fairly immaterial minority stake in the club where they’d have no actual say? Like AH says it’ll be one for the soooopah doopah fans.

I don't think the test will ever be an issue. New owners can just pay lip service (as Ashley has done with those Fans forum charades) and appear engaged.

 

I suppose what it does do is promote a sense of involvement for the pledging fans, and at the very least there'll be a decent donation to a local charity.

I’ve always found Mr. Sheen to be far superior to Pledge, so for that reason, ( and the fact I’m not living in Cloud CuckooLand), I’m out. 

mr sheen was superb in apocalypse now, I'm sure you'd agree?

as regards NUST....

for fucks sake man, a 2 or 3 day fanfare leading up to what amounts to a fantasy, tolkein would've struggled to compete with this.

How is there any involvement besides plumping up the cash for what amounts to a complete vanity project birthed from the realm of day-dreaming fantasists? If I was on that trust, I’d want the entire board stepping down for attempting to raise money for something so inane

They want to be seen to be doing something....noble but pointless... loving the huge amount of OOT'ers in the video, enough to see Stevie,  the mad bacon shed bigot who's name escapes me atm & Michael Martin the old True Faith honcho who was driven off twitter by a crazed mob of young multi national Toon Army foot soldiers a fuckin coronary :lol:

Well I'm going to buck the trend on here and say I don't think it's totally pointless. Worst case scenario you've bunged a few quid to North East charities or end up like Sunderland or Bury and the fans will end up bailing them out. Any consortium that takes over might well get some brownie points by involving the fans and whilst not being a Barcelona type club with the voting etc, could still have a part to play and be involved in it. Nobody is asking anyone to fork out anything they don't want to/afford.

Involvement in so much as they've bought into something alongside the other fans. Kind of like all chipping in a quid to the office lottery group. You've still got fuck all chance of winning, but it is supposed to promote camaraderie... or something.

Anyone who keeps working after a massive lottery win should have it taken off them.

Agreed. Having a small part of your club owned by the fans seems like a reasonable and achievable goal. It might not be for everyone but at least they are doing something over and above having a twist on the internet ;)

Shearer's in now and he's apparently as tight as they come. :lol: 

 

It's long term and when you think in that scale it isn't as daft as it sounds, if hearts support can raise £12m then surely we can do at least as much long term?

Yeah but £12million bought Hearts.

Still £12m raised and nobody is suggesting £12m will buy NUFC, (unless we do a Portsmouth/Sunderland etc).
