Maybe if the club wasn't run so badly every time he is chairman, he wouldn't have to put in so much money to prop it up.


And this statement above says it all. Well said sir!

It is my belief that CUFC is owned and run by CLUBKILLERS

The best thing about Jenkins is that he has kept putting money in to prop the club up over the years.

The worst thing about Laffy's proposal (according to some) is that he would take money out of the club.

There's a subtle but monumental difference between the two.

I don’t need the money Jimmy-precisely why I wanted to help sort things out.AJ is part of the furniture and has always stood his corner.Sadly that monumental effort has not seen a change in fortunes-that is my interest, not money.Never has been.

Oh, I know.

My point was that Jenkins has run it so badly he's had to keep putting more money in to stop it from going under. Taking money out of the club would mean there's something to actually take out!

Do it Laffy you will have the whole city behind you,but do it very openly and publicly maybe including the N&S so that there is no hiding or excuses from the 3 amigos about it not been a serious bid, also might be worth approaching PD about what you are proposing. I'm sure other investors would get on board as well.
We can't just sit back until it's to late and and end up like Bury.

Even being an effective ex-pat now down here, I would love to help in some way with pushing through any kind of change. I know many friends who would be similarly active in offering their support if a proposal was to gain some traction, as this one already appears to be.

Is it worth setting up some kind of page where those who are keen to lend their support to the idea can sign their name? It would at least provide an initial cornerstone for the N+S, BBCRC etc to pick up on? Seems unlikely they'll report about a thread on the messageboard. Get 1000 names to a 'petition' of sorts though, and it probably gets wider exposure.

I think steering clear of Facebook is a good idea, given how previous attempts in that domain have eventually descended into farce. Perhaps a change.org or free petition site would be a good way to go? Happy to help pull some words together if needed! UTB

Hi Laffy - here are some points from another fan....

"Andrew Theoretically in your opinion would someone buying the debt from EWM [ assuming that they were willing to sell it ] with the PG.s still in place be possible without Jenkins and co being able to do anything about it or would assigning the debt to a third party mean they would be able to wriggle off the hook of the PG.s and all that would entail or could you just buy the deal as it currently stands with the charges and PG.s in place without them being able to do anything about it ?

I.m sure you can see where i.m going with this as it may be a cost-effective way of acquiring the club ie someone pays EWM say £2 million [ or whatever the debt to them is nowadays ] to buy the debt and then immediately calls in the PG.s to recover the cash from the club directors assuming they aren't in a position to write cheques immediately you offer them a deal that includes handing over their shares in the club for the amount that they paid for them and allowing them to deduct any outstanding personal loans that the club owe them meaning i believe [ putting the Pioneer loan to one side] you could acquire the club for circa 400k.

Now i know that you believe that the club is worth nothing but i dont see anyway anybody is going to be able to get the club for that sort of amount any other way given the current level of debt at least this way someone could acquire it for less than half a million [ when was the last time a league club particularly one with our proven potential changed hands for a sum as small as that Hell even Andy Holt had to pay the best part of a million to get control of Accy [a club the third of the size of CUFC] and clear its pressing debt ]

This method if workable would allow someone to acquire the club for 400k debt-free [ other than the remains of what's owed to Pioneer and surely that could be taken care of by giving them the naming rights to the East Stand for the next decade because dont forget Andrew loves the club and surely he would do anything to see it move on and thrive before the end of his days. ]

If anyone else [ Carwash for example ] who is in the know would like to stick their two penneth in then please feel free to do so".

Laffy, I would urge you to go public with your proposal again. I for one would be in support for this and others have previously stated the same in this thread. The club's demise over the last 10 years is hard to watch and needs change. Attendance are falling, standards on the pitch are falling and the match day experience has fallen significantly. I'm sure if you went public on this many more fans would be in support of you.

Munchymagic, I was keeping my head down and not getting involved in this particular discussion. Without having seen any of the documentation, I would think the personal guarantees are non-assignable. i.e. they only cover loan amounts that are owed by the club to EWM. Almost certainly EWM could assign the debt owing to them and perhaps the debenture can also be transferred to a third party but I'd expect the personal guarantees would terminate in that event. I am thinking back to once when I had to give a pg to Barclays Bank as it is the only occasion I have ever taken much interest in pg documentation.

I don't see why EWM would want to sell its £2 million loan for say £1 million and possibly let the directors off the hook. However it is difficult to be categoric without seeing all the paperwork.

The problem for this is and always is the current ownership. They thrwarted Laffy once and will probably do it again!

AJ is adamant that he can get his money back, deluded sadly as its not going to happen. The phrase "Money goes to money" is apt in this case as with this austerity and lack of investment the chances of doing well on the pitch are slim as is a cup run with this lot so no chance of getting his money back.

Then we have JN who uses the club to further his FA/EFL ambitions. The magic hand and will do anything NOT TOO to give this up.

SP, still no idea why he is on the board offers nothing. Again will do anything to stop Laffy having any sort of control on the club.

The only thing that can help in Laffy's favour is supporter unrest etc and supporter pressure. A clean balance sheet it would be easy, with 2 million debt, debentures PGs its incredably complicated!

I'm for it 100% but this is not going to happen overnight.

At least we’re not Stockport

FS added value, a face-lift, and new shop and statue, and bit of resurfacing, freshened things up. Even Knighton added value (and a ruddy great loan) with the East Stand, never fully utilised.

We don't see improvements anymore, and asking for them is like pulling hens back teeth, we now see decline.

The future is, erm, much of the same.

At a time when we are very well executived up, what the hell is everyone doing ?

There is no early fix Piglet and I wouldn’t be setting out to bolt on new thinking/ideas without sorting out the platform first.Basically a clearout and a clean balance sheet with cash in it.

That means appointing a dynamic CEO who can engage with the fans and city-and give him the tools to rebuild the commercial department.We has one lined up last time who took a club to the PL and he was ideal.Vision, passion and had already done it.

The stadium is the big issue for me.Decaying, lacking in atmosphere with shocking amenities and a depreciation charge of around £500k pa through the P&L.I would make it my goal to redevelop BP-and it would be along the financial lines of the scheme Workington were following.

On the field,it’s my view one year contracts and loanees are a short term fix but a long term disaster.Basically a function of where the Club finds itself.

The ownership model would be a hybrid of local businessmen but I would open up the whole thing to the entire fan base.The Trust would get their undilutable 10pc but any more would need to be paid for and I would ask them to move to charitable status and look to them to consolidate all the factions under one umbrella.

I drew a line down a piece of paper last night and put the positives in one side and negatives on the other.This Club has many positives to leverage-the negatives are just functional things that can be replaced

What changes would be made to bring new money into the club on a weekly basis not investment or match-day gate income?
How would you plan to engage with businesses in Carlisle considering a lot of them will be supplied by the current custodians businesses?

I have two concerns

-long term stability
-long term success

There are of course short term things like replicating the 8000 idea but these are short term.Oh and the playing budget would be based on longer contracts-this short term stuff is a race to the bottom and a knee jerk to the largesse of the KC era

I’m not interested in short term crap.I was in India 7 weeks ago and saw them building new blocks of flats alongside mud streets,
water stand pipes and filth.Smart eh.

The floating fans will only come back regularly with a winning team Matt.Im afraid that starts with a basic foundation of a debt free balance sheet and making decisions because you can, not because you have to.

The stadium needs flattened and rebuilt-that needs Council involvement and associated development around it.

I think there are a number of businesses who would support if they could see something out of it.Im not worried at all about the backdraft from the current regime

You cannot take over a football club and only focus on the long term, that's a recipe for disaster I'm afraid.

Of course, the medium and longer terms have to be part of your planning - but if you don't apply any immediate action to improve the current product - you're screwed before you've even started.

You're not starting at the very bottom and building an organisation from scratch here - and to treat running the club as such is total madness.

Once you've finished sorting the back office out - you'll have a lovely well organised administrative structure - but no football team.

The product is absolutely key, without out it - everything else is irrelevant. If you don't have a football team people want to pay to watch you might as well whistle into the wind.

But then again Andrew, we know having a successful team isn't part of your plan, don't we. The approach you're advocating demonstrates that most clearly.

I personally think it would take more than a winning start to get people interested again. Last time round maybe but now people have found other things to do and support. Lower league football has lost its appeal, our attendances are poor but not the worse in the league and I’m not sure how they would improve. People said after xxx but still won’t come back!

Who said anything about spending?

Anyway, "getting mid-table" would be a start, wouldn't it?

You can't "rebuild for next season" if you do absolutely nothing on the football side - all you do is dig your hole deeper.

I'd expect any new owner, especially one with prior knowledge of the team and management, to make immediate sweeping changes on the football side of the house.

I'll give you another chance to answer Andrew, what immediate action would you take?

We both know enough about the game to see the spine of the team is too weak.Come to think about it, how about a centre half as well.

The club’s long term future is a hybrid of a core of wealthy businessmen wanting to put something back with a new stadium, supplemented by fans buying equity if they want to.We have many things to shout about, many more positives than negative.

Laffy - what i am concerned about is your redevelopment plan:

1) Demolition isn't cheap and the land is unsellable - are you going to rebuild on the same site?

2) You have mentioned that a 10/12k stadium is fine - this will sustain us in league 1 at best. Quoting attendances over the last 30 year is irrelevant as we have been underachieving for 30 years apart from maybe 4 seasons.

3) Saying this season is a write off so early in the season when we are still only 6 points of the playoffs - if you did get control why would anyone go for the remainder of the season?

4) I also question your ability to accept consecutive criticism - before you appeared in the evening news you where nowhere near this or the previous message board and have been 'grooming' on here ever since to the point where some think you are Yoda.

5) If Jenkins has been putting £250k a year in to get us in debt how would you achieve a better situation - we would need an extra average of 1,000 on the attendance and they won't come unless we are going for promotion.

6) Our average attendance in the worst season since 2003/04 is still 4,349 - I expect this to plummet - but drawing up contracts on anything above 4,000 is risky. What percentage are you talking about?

This is not a witch hunt - but if things don't go to plan is it worth it?

I’m pretty sure most fans would want to stay at BP but consider the fact that it’s probably £500k of hard cash to maintain the existing structure and you see why something needs to change-it’s eating cash.

I reckon a Workington type plan would work to build a new stadium.

Grooming-not something I have been accused of before.I like to find solutions and thus far,I am the only one who has offered one-albeit rejected.

Piglet asked about how I would go about immediate improvement of the product.The team could clearly be improved but we are in the middle of a season and in my opinion it’s already a write off.I would think the best time to take this on would be towards the end of a season and not waste money and effort shoring up a busted flush.The idea of gate sharing has some merit but I think radical surgery is more relevant.

Piglet does make (one) good point. There does need to be something to turn round the negativity around by improvements in the team. Otherwise you get a Bolton situation which has meandered in negativity for many years now.
Most of the changes suggested by Laffy will not be seen/felt by the supporters, so there does need to be something to generate a revival in interest.
Big loan signing or two or a couple of gnarled League 2 players. Perhaps financed by a change round in the commercial activities, with the added benefit of the publicity splurge being in the face of the supporters.
Not convinced I would give the trust any of their shares back mind. Much better with a Lummy driven new supporter group, as the Trust are as much associated with the recent failures as AJ and co.

Such is the long-term negativity about the current regime that any change of ownership would see an initial surge of interest in the club both at the turnstiles and commercially, similar to when John Courtenay took over.

This should be enough to fund a change of manager and a couple of modest signings in the short term to steady the ship.

If people felt the new ownership was genuine about taking the club forward and could see some evidence of this from the outset then you'd definitely get a bounce effect.

Any stadium costs you money to maintain.

Anyway, El Buitre's back to saying he'd do nothing on the football side of the house until the end of the season.

This should tell every single one of our supporters where his priorities lie and what his true intentions are.

A Lapping takeover would be as bad, if not worse, than the current regime. Clearly, improvements on the pitch are not on the agenda and not part of his plan.

Brunton Park demolished and a Conference level stadium built to replace it? None of his own money spent? No changes in the dugout or on the pitch? It sounds like the stuff of nightmares to be honest.

Jumping into bed with the first slapper you meet on Bothchergate who's willing to move her knickers to one side for you is rarely a good idea. Yet that's what "the majority" on this forum seem desperate to do.

Piglet you seem to coming across as the leader of the opposition. You are just opposing just for the sake of opposing and not giving any ideas of your own. Tell us what your manifesto is and how you would do things different . Until then put up or shut up !

No chance.
The hospitality has now all been franchised out, apart from Foxes.
So the club no longer makes money, apart from the cost of the franchise, from increasing revenue from this source.
I think the sun has set on that one.

What are my true intentions then you clown?I have repeatedly said I’m not interested in money-got plenty of it.Not bad for a boy from Harraby eh.

It’s about time you came off the fence and told your audience what you really think I’m up to.It can’t be to make money as I have said.

Do I think I could make the club more successful?Yes I do but I would take the fans with me on that journey and want nothing back in return-not even a board position as frankly I prefer to sit in the stand and leave at 4.50pm.

Can I also ask you what you would do to change things for the better oh great one?Thus far, you are doing an amazing impersonation of Corbyn-a serial objector but without anything to offer
