I can't believe I read that nonsense from the trust this morning - complete codswallop. twitter.com/joncolman

If there was ever a statement, that made you believe the trust were are deeply in bed with the owners that was it. A completely defeatist attitude of at least we're not Bury or Macclesfield. Why can't we be one of the other successful teams though!

They make me sick! might as well give up!

At least we’re not Stockport

As Laffy said on the other thread this read like a piece of propaganda that you'd expect from a totalitarian state. CUOSC obviously see themselves as aligned with the new EWM regime. Manager Pressley was damned with faint praise. Disappointing results but a positive approach to player preparation. Do any managers have a negative approach to player preparation?

I'm afraid this smacks of those running CUOSC think they know best because they sit at the top table with the decision makers. I can't think of a better way to alienate the supporters and lose their trust.

The trusts statement seems to capture the mood in the directors box rather than the mood on the terraces!!

Yes just seen Laffy reply on the other thread, correct it reads like propaganda, it's a joke.

The players they listed of us having replaced, have all played at a higher level. So we haven't replaced well, have we. The Pressley love in was sickening.

I don't understand how the trust board are still there. Baffling!

At least we’re not Stockport

It’s a fair point well made by the trust

Absolute bottlers, no backbone at all. Basically the most pointless organisation going as they’re puppets

Giving a 28 year old a two year contract instead of a one year contract (if rumours are to be believed) is hardly in the same league as the catastrophic financial mismanagement which has taken place at Bury and Bolton, especially when he’s the club’s captain and best player.

I totally understand the need for austerity within football clubs but at the same time they need to function to keep going. If this policy of only offering 12 month deals is rigid then I dread to think the quality of player we’ll attract this summer.

If we had a wage structure in place to stick to and Devitt was demanding in excess of this then I can understand them not deviating from the plan but (once again, if rumour are to be believed) if it was just another year he was looking for then not to make the odd exception is ludicrous.

I fear the new policy is a knee-jerk reaction to the Jason Kennedy situation where we ended up paying a player a good wage who was injured for the remaining half of his contract.

I can’t accept the love in or the propaganda-it’s pathetic, limp and to use sensational players from a bygone age to justify losing a mediocre, inconsistent player like Devitt fools nobody.I also suspect it doesn’t represent the views of the vast majority of fans-we aren’t stupid.

Whilst I like many of the Trust committee, this is a professional football club-not a whilst drive down at the village hall.

The fact of the matter is none of the shareholders have any control anymore-it’s EWM on every front.So start looking for ways to improve your position by raising real money and sorting out your Constitution for the day when the Club is handed over by EWM.

The statement is incomprehensible. What do they hope to achieve with this? Convince us all that we shouldn’t have offered Devitt a two year deal? And this crack about Stan Bowles and Peter Beardsley! Who writes this stuff? They are cosied up with the owners and are an absolute disgrace. I guess they are profiting from the apathy surrounding the club, they can get away with this sort of rubbish and no one can be bothered to do anything about it.

Not sure they are cosied up but I’m also not at all sure like you what or who they are.They sit in the middle-on the Board due to the owners trying to hold their own position but also holding back a proper fund raise with their 25.4pc-despite having no cash.Basically no mans land.

I’m not bothered about Devitt-he clearly wants to go and if he’s getting security and a bigger wage,I would do the same.We get a star at BP once every decade I reckon-he wasn’t it.

The Trust and stakeholders bought into the pillars and structures crap that KC spun but where are those pillars now?As far as I can see, there’s been a bonfire and SP is starting from scratch.Lets hope the strategy works.

I have just read the article in the N&S. What a load of tripe!
Apart from having a share in the club which they were given by Mileson who seemed keen on destroying CUFC what exactly have they done apart from buying a television?
With all the talk of budget cuts should they not be out there trying to raise funds like the Darlington supporters have?
Why not just give their shares to Jenkins as they are completely in his pocket regardless of what they say.

Did you get a reply?

I'd advise no one to renew their memberships.

At least we’re not Stockport

Not at the moment Richard. To be honest I'm not expecting one. I'll give him until this evening then send him another one cancelling my membership.
