  • Must confess to being nervous (there were tears at Torquay) but what a prospect! Irrespectively, we finish in our highest ever league position in over 133 years. Come on you mighty, mighty Chairboys.
  • What is interesting is not what they have told us about last week's meeting but what they have omitted to share with us. Details to be revealed (hopefully) shortly. Can any accountants make a stab at establishing a date for when the Trust boar…
  • I'll be bringing along some nice carrot soup. It's forecast to be chilly in the gantry even at 2 metres apart which I promise to observe, subject, that is, to a late-goal thriller... Just wanted to type about Wycombe in the league 1 play-of…
  • Firstly, a massive hats off to everyone concerned for the best league position in the club's entire history. Secondly, given what's going on, can anyone explain why the semi-final has to be a two-legged affair? Wouldn't it be better for a one-…
  • Sunderland's finances are discussed in the most recent podcast edition of The Price of Football with Prof. Kieran Maguire (Brighton fan) of Liverpool University and Kevin Day (Palace fan), the podcast is thoroughly recommended as is Kieran's book - …
  • The ABM deal came about as a result of the club's short term need for cash, incompetence by those who negotiated it and financial self-interest. ABM were a problem the Couhigs inherited and from what they say are trying to sort out. If we boycott AB…
  • Shame the A.G.M. wasn't on Facebook like the other meetings. The Football Club allegedly lost approx. £868,000 in the last year. Did anything of note come out? Trust seem to be silent on the matter.
  • Thoroughly deserved. I hope you win.
  • I imagine by now the Couhigs have won the 75% necessary to gain majority control of the club which is a very clear mandate. We will never know whether a supporters trust owned model could have worked or not but what we do know is that it didn't i…
  • 1) Bill and Jim, the board's preferred bidder, pulled out in April which led to the board having to, allegedly, ring up Mr. Harman to ask if he could revive his bid. 2) The Dutch consortium were in pole position until that deal fell though in May…
  • Oops! Still as in still HAVEN'T sent any information to Legacy members.
  • On January 28th 2019 we were promised details of the Bill and Jim deal within three weeks. Nothing happened. (Source: Trust website) At the fans forum on the 11th July 2019 we were told the timing of the vote was to be confirmed but likely to be …
  • What about people who are away, live abroad or have mobility issues? There are 850 legacy members and the board will let us have sight of one hard copy? It is standard corporate governance to allow shareholders have a copy of the full prospect…
  • The timing of the story at the top of this thread is indeed strange. My understanding is that those who headed up the dutch consortium wanted to go to the vote without revealing the names of the famous footballers, we needed to find someone to pa…
  • The report in The Athletic is 100% accurate. Reports in Holland suggesting Kurt was going to buy a Div.1 club called Wanderers was assumed to be Bolton when it was in fact Wycombe. I posted on May 10 pictures of Fahri Ecvet and Rob Jansen of W…
  • If you want to sell any asset, you get a couple of valuations to establish a price range. If we had got a couple of independent valuations and had published them, we could then make up our own minds whether the training ground was a fair deal for…
  • Apologies for at least two typos above. Mea culpa, mea culpa, mea culpa.
  • F.A.O. Wandering Jock Don't let the South Bucks Stasi put you off. They did the same with Marlow Chair. Most of the people have already made their mind up to vote yes before reading the details of the deal. They wanted to do the same with t…
  • Bury bought promotion last season and we can see how that ended up. We bought promotion the season before by spending £500,000 that we didn't have (in spite of the fact we were told that cash is predictable) and we had to abandon the supporters t…
  • Mr. Davies departure was inevitable, two of the individuals who interviewed and recommended Mr. Davies were allegedly sacked themselves soon after. Is their any slippage in what was going to happen to American Consortium No.1 charge against the s…
  • Fellow Gasroomers, Please listen once again if you can to the Live stream recording on the Facebook page. If any techno genius can work out out to create a link to the above and put it on here you would be doing a massive favour to all of us. …
  • It's a great deal for Mr. Couhig, he gets an asset from a distressed seller (without a proper valuation) if the deal goes through and make a fabulous return on his money if the bid is rejected. It's a great deal for Ivor and the gang, they get th…
  • Please feel free to dismiss this. Just for the record, I resigned as a Trust director because a number of Trust board directors (who still serve on the board) falsely accused me of handing out copies of a legal letter outside an away match. Th…
  • Thanks Oxford Blue for posting the picture. As I understand there are two/three various parties sniffing around. The trouble is once again people have made their mind up already without doing the due diligence - like for example are the funds …
  • Following extensive talks between Harman and Stroud regarding Mr. Harman's deal, why did Stroud just sit there and allow Harman's figures to be misrepresented, or undervalued, at the meeting on the Monday when the Trust board voted? Why did he no…
  • Given we know at least 25% of trust board directors post on here and given the deafening silence from all of them in the last week since the allegation was made, why doesn't the Trust Board Secretary state unequivocally whether it is true or not? …
  • I think given what has been happening that dissenting voices have been incredibly mild-mannered about what they have posted. All the Trust - not that it is them calling the shots- needed to do was to get a mandate, a genuine one that is, from the…
  • Why is everyone, especially Trust board directors, so keen to "out" Marlow Chair on this site, I would far prefer to hear the truth than the spin, wouldn't you? Marlow's proven track record stands up to scrutiny making it even more difficult to u…
  • Andy Harman never stood a chance as it was not in "the inner circle's" interests. Stroud wasn't offered anything and therefore the bid had to be ruled out before a bunch of members got excited and ruined the creditors' deal with the private equit…
  • Beechdean Group Companies results are now posted at Companies House and make very interesting reading. Do you think Beechdean has been paying more or less to WWFC since Mr Stroud joined the company as a consultant? Do you think Beechdean are p…
