Just got in, any good?
Lynch mob mentality
I wanna hear more about that letter...
blokes taking 35 minutes to deliver a question.
What letter? I'll watch it back tomorrow.
I have no financial interest in CCFC being at the Ricoh.
Pay rent to Wasps for what ?
Sole interest is as a fan and aspirations of getting back competing in at least the Championship.
The Butts will not be suitable for mine and many fans aspirations.
Lots of heckling, people firing their own agendas, people missing key questions to ask and Timmy batting them back too easily with politician answers basically
Why are all the people with all the questions on here and not there.
I'll read it.
Oh mate. You sre in for a treat. Especially if you are irish or welsh
A lot of the land around Dean Court is owned by AFC Bournemouth. They managed to build a new stand without any planning permission issues, Don't really see why they couldn't expand there if they wanted to.
now being replayed The Sky Blue Trust (@TheSkyBlueTrust) on Twitter
but even if the residents didn't object, why would CRFC use the site to develop a stadium far too big for them when they could use the space to develop other income streams, some of which I believe are already in the pipeline?
Don't waste your time.
Is it RFC?
What's the land adjacent to the Butts is it a running track and football pitch so lots of land for an academy. But the Butts would only be a short term plan if the ever have any ambition.
Predictable. Fisher always knows he's on safe ground. Just a bar room brawling audience yelling screaming and not any questions with substance. Shambles.
It's an opportunity missed if the questions asked are not sensible, don't you agree? If you want answers that can be challenged, then it has to be done in a calm manner. Linnel would have done a better job tbh, and that says it all.
If you think everyone shouting shit out was a good use of the time with TF, then I have to disagree.
Another wasted opportunity of getting any real answers.
Lots of shouting, repeatedly asking the same questions, people getting wound up in the emotion and generally not asking what re assurances we need.
And the bloke wasting the last 15 minutes going on a rant about nothing and making a point of not being able to buy badges at the club shop. FFS where do they get these people from and why is it not managed properly to stop people wasting time
The Trust should have set it up like Question Time.
Get everyone to submit questions before the event. Trust then pick out say the best 10 questions and then after and only after that should the questions then be opened up to the floor.
Me and wife spent the last hour cringing with embarrassment. The questions need vetting next time. We sounded like a bunch of uneducated emotional goons.
Some of the 'questions' turned into mindless clap trap.
Seriously, don't bother. It was a shambles. We got people moaning about no badges in the club shop, why the Irish and Welsh supporters clubs didn't get priority for the cup final (turns out they did but couldn't be arsed to reply saying how many tickets they wanted), why Fisher has lost weight and other random rubbish.
The only real stuff of interest was:
We're mid table in player budget for L1
They will back, whatever that means, Robins next season
Working with a school on the academy, hopeful of an announcement soon
The short term plan is the Ricoh but Wasps won't talk, long term plan is Butts. Said CRFC are onboard and also mentioned architects have been involved
Then he just reiterated the three points about mediation
Rest was people ranting or shouting over him.
Are you sure Dave? According to this recent article they don't even own the ground let alone any of the land around it and the local council aren't behind any future development/expansion of the ground anyway.
AFC Bournemouth begin search for new stadium site for 2020-21 season
Did Tim have any bodyguards? Who was the black fella standing behind him hogging the limelight?
Just went to walk the dogs and there was a few scumbags running down the street (after Tim) shouting abuse.
The epitome of the evening.
The no badges guy!
Wasted opportunity tonight imo The question on ST by Gary Stubbs was very good but Fisher didn't answer and was allowed to move on from it!
decided at the last minute not to bother wasting my Monday night... so glad I did!!
Same old shite... same old questions, same old bulshit answers
And even if you do get a decent question or grilling, do you really believe a word that comes out of that blokes mouth
I'd have just come out of there more frustrated than when I went in!!
What good questions did he skip?
Fisher brought with him two bodyguards, looked like he needed them too.
I can't believe what I just watched.... I'm actually fucking angry with some of the pathetic questions asked at fisher.
Here's a fucking great idea for the next Q&A (if we have one) - make sure the person asking the question firstly can speak queens English and secondly they have an I.Q. over 10.
WFT, that isn't the Butts mate.
How can there be 200 odd people in a room with Tim Fisher for over an hour and not one think to ask if we have a plan in place incase Wasps don't do a deal past summer 2018 for the Ricoh?
Question is, on what estimated ST sales? The bar is always being set 'high' and then lowered.
No realistic prospect of a ground/income, no cat 2 academy. The business model isn't going to work.
Said SISU have spent near 100 million , to reduce the crowds from 20000 in championship to probably 4000 In L2, but had backers to pay for the relocation and development of the BUTTS with a capacity of 12000 moving up to 25000 (long term) wish I could find people like that , must have more money than sense, didn't believe a word he said , He also said M. Robins excited by the project (still don't get that appointment)
Agreed, it was screaming out for that question when he said we want a short term rolling deal at the Ricoh but that Wasps won't talk to them.
