Quote
CM has acknowledged that is very likely that he will have to invest at least another £1m into the club each season to mitigate club losses, he has budgeted for this. The club are working through each revenue stream with the aim of becoming sustainable in approx. 2 years’ time.

ST prices frozen

Matchday adult prices down from £27 to £24

Looking to reduce categories to 6 or 7 (do we have significantly more now?)

Formal ST launch end of Feb/early March

Quote
Car Park Lease Agreement (Arranged with Power) . We have issued a response but not heard back. The company are suing the club for £60k for loss of income & set up costs. This is ongoing with the respective legal representatives from each side.

From next season advisory board will be every two months rather than monthly (at least, I assume they meant bimonthly in that direction). In the 'off' months Clem will give a video update to the club website.


This question reproduced unchanged and without comment beyond  

Quote
Why are the clubs view on some of the online fans that seem to want to continually berate and attack the club and do they know why they do this?, We all know times are tough and things have not been good on the pitch but it seems counterproductive as fans to behave in this way.

I have been watching town for over 40 years and both myself and people who sit around me in the DRS are disgusted to see this sort of behavior and anger and I wondered if the club had reached out to these fans and groups to speak to them to understand their reasons and anger? They hide online but if the club offered them the chance to speak personally in the
club I bet they would turn it down as they would have nothing to moan about then. This must be impacting the players on the pitch and as fans we need to support the players in my view, there is nothing wrong with outlining frustrations and opinions in the right way but some of the language tone and disgraceful attacks and bullying behavior towards club employees and also even some fans witnessed is simply unacceptable. I feel these people need to discuss their anger with the club hierarchy and a resolution found ASAP for the good for the club.

The first three questions in the Q&A section were mine, they were answered broadly as expected although without any new information. These two questions were not answered:

Quote
4. Whilst I understand this (the most recently published accounts) covers a period that completed nearly two years ago and that contained the Manchester City FA Cup game, how have we gone from being a profitable club to needing £1.1m investment to cover 5 months trading in the period since?

5. I presume that all unfavourable commercial deals that Clem Morfuni and Anthony Hall have referred to were agreed under the previous owners of the club. If so, they're reflected in the 2021/22 accounts: have the terms become less favourable in some way since then?

"CM has acknowledged that is very likely that he will have to invest at least
another £1m into the club each season to mitigate club losses, he has
budgeted for this"

"The Club is looking to invest further into the pitch in the close season to
enable it to be used more regularly. We would like to have the women
and academy teams playing more often at the CG next season and also
want to avoid games being called off. We are considering various options
including stitching the pitch and under soil heating."

The under soil heating thing must be a laugh?

All joking aside, and of course there are the usual nonsensicals, these minutes and the replies to the questions do appear to be slightly more thorough and dare I say more 'human'. Fair play.

Nice to see the bike rack make another appearance.

It's a bizarre thing to be put in there. I wonder if Mr Hall wrote it whilst on the naughty step and having some precious reflection time  Hmmm

They hide online but some of them turn up and speak at fans forums and we don't like that either.

Will somebody just fucking give them a bike rack - it's been mothballed now!

Now - I will say I have not been in the Legends Lounge in a long time, so it may well be needing urgent work.  However, if it remains as I remember it, what on earth are they dribbling on about spending money on that area of the ground?  If you want to develop the ground and create new revenue, would it not be better to be identifying ways to invest Capital elsewhere.  You know, to create something new, additional, incremental?  This and the fact it has taken three decades to install a statue (I know, exaggeration) and the wistful talk of weekends spent marveling the under soil heating at a L2 club in the South of England, hardly inspire much confidence in the group supposedly pulling together a Master Plan for investment in the ground (oh, and the fucking bike rack, A BIKE RACK!).
