Why won't CUOSC issue a statement saying they have no confidence in the current regime? It's very clear that most fans want the BOD gone, and if CUOSC really are a voice for the fans they need to stand up and represent our views and make the BOD realize they are not wanted. If they won't do this, they have absolutely no right to say they are a voice for the fans.

Sorry to read that. Always felt John was usually a vote for the fans. One that went to a lot of matches , home and away, and was happy to chat with folk.

He was also very keen that other fans with different ideas got involved. CUOSC will miss his voice of reason.

I think you should put yourself forward Melbers.

You're obviously a man of the people who's wit and humour could bring a much needed levity to the Trust's approach. That would appeal to the fans across the board from Lord Windermere right down to the likes of Munchy and Mullen.

And maybe you could get that back lane to the rugby club paved (gratis) with your connections.

You'd certainly get my vote (if i had one).

Too many people at the top for too long now though. Change must come

Apart from a mention in their weekly briefing, zero mention on their social media or via the local press channels.

It’s only the Chair stepping down eh? Not like it’s kind of important...

I asked the question but never got any firm response - it's up to John if he wants to make public, the reason why.

I get the feeling, and the resignation doesn't change my mind, that's there's a firm clique within the trust and no one's going to change it.

The trust were quick to like the clubs statement - not so quick to tweet a simple thank you for years/works done. i'm not surprised in the slightest, we saw from the last person who went, go against the grain and away you go. Sad!

At least we’re not Stockport

They deny being in bed with the BOD but this makes it look like they are. Most fans want the current regime gone. CUOSC claims to be a voice for the fans but why are they going against the wishes of fans by backing the current regime on this matter?

As many of us have known for some time that the BoD of CUOSC are divided with infighting amongst the group.
It looks like some are there for fans, what it was set up to do, and some are there to help the football club.
As a member this is not acceptable.
A mysterious propsal is quoted as saying the reason for the resignation, well us fans need to know what this proposal is.
Do we want @CUOSC reptesenting us? In my opinion, no as they are not listening to us and they are too in deep with a failing regime at the club.

In the absence of any further information, I'm going to jump to the obvious conclusion that the "mystery proposal" was for a race night, with ringmaster Holdsworth forcing Nigel Flabby Flubbery Blubbens, Jim Mitchell and John Nixon to insert as many EWM Loch Ness Monster toys as possible up their bottoms, with Philiip Day watching and betting on the outcome in a dressing gown via video link from a Swiss cheese fondue and swinging party in Vermatt.

Taking a specific point in your post
They are indeed there for the club because it’s clear that if they were there for the fans the club wouldn’t allow them on. It’s a typical you’re one of us now situation.
They don’t trust fans to be able to grasp the ability of running a football club. I’ve had that from the horses mouth.

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

Surely what is good for the fans is good for the club or vice versa.

Just read Arsenal’s version of the Trust responding to the sacking of Emery this morning.

The Arsenal Supporters' Trust (AST) said Emery's dismissal was "unfortunate but inevitable" and the "more difficult challenge is to recruit a suitable successor".

It added: "We are far from certain that Arsenal has the right personnel to lead this process.

"The AST has long been advocating that the most important changes needed at Arsenal are in the boardroom where Arsenal need better governance."


Whilst it may be a much higher level, could you ever imagine CUOSC saying similar?!

John resigned in early September yet it was only announced last week, 2 and a half months later. Tells you all you need to know about the trust.

A bit strange that he.s posted on here numerous times since then yet said nothing

Surely if you disagreed with the other half of the board you'd stay where you were but make contact with people who you know would make use of the information you.d gleaned and help them to go on and bring down the other half with whom you disagree.

I.ll start to trust him when he publishes the last 3 years of the CUFC boards minutes on here.

You’ll have to ask the trust why they didn’t announce it Barry. Perhaps down to their ineptitude as an organisation.

I’m not sure he’s too bothered about gaining your trust anyhow!

I couldn't care about the Trust announcing anything Chances are unless they go changing some more rules the present Junta won't be around in a months time.

H.es had two months to make his announcement on here and didn't so clearly from that he has something to hide and I couldn't give two [censored] whether he wants my trust or not he.s just the first of them to become a busted flush and the rest of them will soon follow him

You’re well wide of the mark on this one Bazza, he’s got nothing to hide. It wasn’t his news to announce - think about it, if a chairman or manager leaves a football club who’s job is it to announce the news? The individual or the organisation?

I think you’ve gone after the wrong one NS - John always has time for supporters, listens to both sides of the argument. I’ve disagreed/agreed and had good conservations. Johns the only one from the trust to ever call me, listen to my issues - then give his side. With everything he said he gave an explanation to his thinking. I think he has talked shit at times, I’m sure he thinks the same of me at times.

It’s the ones that accepted the “mystery proposal” without investigating it is the problem.

I guess more will come out in the coming days.

Well, in that case, he needs to have a good look at himself

As recently as when we played them earlier in the year he was sticking up For Stuart Day when everybody and his dog knew exactly what he had been up to for 3 years at Bury and what was about to happen soon after. But no he wouldn't have it and suggested Bury fans hadn't got the right to visit his house in Blackburn and register their views on their way home.

And then there's the matter of the years he could have been spilling the beans from the boardroom but chose not to and let's not forget dozens of Nazis ran off and slagged off the regime just before it fell but when the day came that didn't stop them being found guilty and executed at Nuremberg.

Rat leaving the sinking ship just about sums it up for me.

That comment is disgraceful, you're the one who needs to have a look at yourself. I don't like CUOSC as I feel they are in bed with the BOD but for you to make a comparison with Nazis is disgusting and insane.
