Title: Messages to Clem
Post by: mexico red on Sunday, February 18, 2024, 09:22:49
Please post any messages to Clem here. Try and be constructive and not insulting. I'm sure he reads this so maybe they will get through. This should be messages only not discussion.

I have been a supporter for 45 years, a season ticket holder for many of them. I was actually once voted supporter of the year. I live abroad and only now get to the county ground when visiting England. I do however watch every week religiously on ifollow. I can't be bothered anymore. This is easily the worst team I have seen in my lifetime. Under your stewardship we are looking at achieving our worst ever league position. Yet I still pay and watch. But no more. I really can't be arsed to even turn the TV on. It's that depressing watching week in and week out I will no longer be watching.this is what your ownership and your appointments have achieved. A life time of support. So now disinterested I will be doing other things with my Saturday afternoon.

Without sounding a total dick could we kep this to messages not discussion, we have so many other threads for discussion, I wanted one place where Clem could just see a load of messages directed at him.


From mods: messages not directed at Clem will be deleted. This is not a discussion thread please  :smugfu:

You need more experienced football people running the football club, period.

If you canít afford to finance the club - then seek outside investment; ideally not from criminals.

Echoing what has already been said, please sell, and if thatís not something you will consider, at least take it seriously and get rid of the Austins and Harts of this world.

I have been a supporter for 56 years and a season ticket holder for many.
I will not be renewing my season ticket next season whilst the present set up stays.
I stopped going this season at the beginning of this year and have no plans to go again this season.
PLEASE SELL, SO WE CAN MOVE ON

Won Nationwide Supporter of the year in 2002 and gifted the Club half of the prize money.
Sponsored the Club every season until this one, no more and stopped.

Associate yourself with undesirables and convicted criminals it will never wash off. This is no better than the Power era and legacy.

Nothing you do or say has any time lines or date commitments.
Only watching out of loyalty. The Club is like the pitch, a sorry state.

Make everyone happy by officially putting the Club up for sale and at least gaining a crumb of respect.
You are not fit for purpose neither are you appointments. No football experience within the Club and 18th in League Two with one of the biggest Revenues.
Letís see a full and open transparent set of accounts that once again is one of your failed promises.

Just go.

Thanks for your time and efforts Clem, it is appreciated, but its time to sell up and move on now so we can progress as a club.

Thats all, no "fuck off now" or anger, just please officially put the club up for sale, if you are indeed the 100% owner of it again (if you ever were) and let the club prosper under new forward thinking owners who may be able to financially support the club better and develop the County Ground into a stadium fit for purpose.


Title: Re: Messages to Clem
Post by: Outletred on Sunday, February 18, 2024, 11:50:45
Please sell up- you donít have the funds to sustain the club and get us back to league one and stay there

And take all the undesirable hangers on with you

Another long term ST holder not renewing next season

It's quite clear you have neither the resources or competency to successfully maintain the wellbeing of 8k+ individuals on a weekly basis. Know you're well intended but this isn't an egg and spoon race on sports day, this is supposed to be a serious business and you're letting us all down. It's time to let someone else try.

I will not be renewing until you and your hanger ons have left. Time to drain the swamp.

Your position is now untenable. Whatever your intentions were when you became owner the facts are youíve chosen to associate yourself with convicted criminals and other chancers who clearly donít have the clubs best interests at heart.

The clubs infrastructure is more skeletal than it has ever been, most National league clubs have a more professional set up than exists here.

You are having to resort to regularly pushing out lies and mistruths in the hope you can maintain some kind of support. That canít be a healthy life to live?

Youíve paid the most generous fan in the clubs history the ultimate disservice claiming you gifted the fans half of the ground. The reality is the late Nigel Eady gifted you 50% of the ground and youíve never had the decency to properly apologise for that statement which is truly unforgivable.

In a similar vein you guilt tripped supporters into giving up season ticket refunds in return for a name on a cheap plastic plaque that wonít stand the test of time. Again the supporters have never seen anything tangible in return for such a sacrifice.

Since you got 50% ownership of the County Ground youíve been near radio silent and your charm offensive has come to a grinding halt. This gives the impression the ground was all you ever wanted so that you could increase the value of your asset?

Itís time for you to sell, you are just a temporary custodian of an almost 150 year old community asset. If you canít afford to run it, or run it right itís time to pass it on to someone who can.
Rumours of inflated price of tags for the club have been suggested, youíve done nothing to deserve making a profit from the club and you donít deserve to get one. You should be grateful if you just get your money back as if you arenít careful your greed will see you lose everything. Nigel Eadyís generosity adding an asset to the balance sheet should help with that.

Sell up before your name is in the history books for all the wrong reasons.

When you do sell us, please don't just pass us along to another of your gang's crooked mates.

You have cut the club down to the bone, there's nothing left to skimp and save on, you will be the death of this club. Hoping for two worse teams each season to drop out of the league ahead of us is not a sustainable business model...

I won't be renewing my family's season tickets, the money is disappearing somewhere but it's clear its not headed onto the pitch. You have continued Power's steady decline (19/20 season apart) and will see this club into non-league soon. We've had enough.

Sorry Clem,

The OP of this thread asked for constructive criticism. I'm sure you'll be aware of the phrase by the eccentric English writer, Charles Caleb Colton {no relation to helpless former Town Goalkeeper RC-C} although you may associate it similarly with the Disney movie Bambi {also no relation to myself, incidentally}:

''If you have nothing nice to say, say nothing at all...''

Unfortunately, I have nothing constructive to say.

Dear Mr Morfuni,

With the greatest respect please just sell the club to more competent personnel that can drive the club forward. This club is too big for you and needs owners who can run the business properly and not from the other side of the world. Unfortunately there is nothing left you can say otherwise as I no longer believe anything you say. I will also not be renewing 2 season tickets next season. In fact Iíve already stopped putting further money into the club as my pre match routine is no longer in Legends Lounge but an alternative pub and I no longer use the club shop or any kiosks within the ground.

Clem,

I've been a fan of this football for around 35 years. I've seen lots of ups and down over these years but all have generally taken place far higher up the football pyramid than we find ourselves in now. Looking at the current state of this football club, surely you have to admit that you are failing desperately in your attempt to run it. Since you took over, we have gradually got worse and worse and we're now in the pretty much to worst position we have been in. Does that sit well with you? Surely you have to admit that you do not have the know how or finances to successfully run a football club.

Running a football club isn't an easy thing to do and plenty have failed before. But this club desperately needs and deserves investment, and that's the only way you'll ever get anywhere near a return from it. Developing young players to sell on needs capable coaching staff and facilities. Have a first team who win matches needs a capable manager, coaching staff, analysts, physios etc. We also need experienced commercial staff, scouts, people with football knowledge in senior positions at the club. 

This club has a great fanbase who have stuck with the club through very hard times and huge potential, but we all deserve so much more than you are giving us.

Please, please put the club up for sale and let someone come in with the knowledge and finances to give this club what it deserves.

Title: Re: Messages to Clem
Post by: Power to people on Monday, February 19, 2024, 13:13:31
If you intend to keep the club then please employ people like an experienced CEO who has experience of running a football club and give them control and step back, to get the club running like a proper football club rather than jobs for ex employee's have no experience.

Then appoint a manager giving him control of football operations without having one hand tied behind his back.

If you cant afford to run the club then look to sell the club and don't spoil your legacy by handing it over to the first person that shows you a brown paper bag.

The fans forum requested questions be sent in, so I did. Unsurprisingly none of them were answered.

The gist of mine was

"As a Season ticket holder for almost 20 years, who travels 5 or 6 hours for every home game, based on how the club is being run what can you say to me to convince me to renew our season tickets for next season?"

Congratulations.
Possibly followed by the biggest drop in ST sales from one season to the next? Who knows?

This is a mirror image of my meeting him three years ago at Supermarine. Second time was when I bought my last replica shirt, even have a selfie with digger. What was I thinking? It is also a mirror image of my financial involvement and intent.
