    Be mindful of the fact , the '' Context ''of what I've said , will be changed to suit certain peoples arguments . whilst this will encourage replies , it also adds to monies received too.

    The club is supposed to be run as self sufficient. That being the case the more money supporters put into the club the more money Mowbray has to spend. The bigger the budget the better the chance of success.

    Seems pretty simple to me.

    If people are choosing to not go to games or buy dodgy merchandise rather than official club merchandise they are choosing not to put money into the club. That is of course their right but they aren't then in a strong position to complain about lack of funds.

    I'm just surprised that there's even a market for knock-off Cov gear.

    I have read it properly. It's you that is embarrassing by trying to squirm out of what you, yourself have written.

    Re-read what I said.... I don't give a flying fuck what Bob said/did,

    knock off /being ripped off which one would most sensible people do ?

    IF there were evidence of the owners investing the merchandise money into the team ... now , that would be kind of justified to paying over the odds.

    Squirm out of what???

    You should read what he said, as then you will see what I was replying to....

    Then you will see what I was comparing to.

    BTW Bob, I'm not having a go at you. I'm just making the point that what you said/did has nothing to do with what I'm having a go at Nick for ;)

    Of course I've read it ALL.(More than I can say for you the vast majority of the time) It's you and your blatant dig about fans refusing to go to games that I'm angry about.

    Really, so you post what I said over and over in the same post to prove a point but still don't get it?

    Any proof? I can't find any.

    Shocker, somebody makes an accusation but won't back it up.

    I suppose paying rent to another football club and paying for a new pitch to be laid, is "Going into CCFC coffers?" Seems pretty simple to me!

    Yes but they're in the prem and will merely get a fine. Hardly puts me off! Will that fine be more than 10% of the income from the prem? I very much doubt it.

    Which part of "I've read all of it, and I don't care what Bob has said/did, and It's you and your blatant dig about fans refusing to go to games that I'm angry about." Don't you get?

    because you should care what he said, as then you would see what I was replying to, so you would then see what the "worse than" part was of my comment.

    You would then see it's actually a fact. Unless you think a web site is more damaging to a club than fans refusing to give them any money?

    I made myself abundantly clear on the subject. What Bob said, did, or didn't do, is not the crux of my anger with you mate. It's the fact that you have a dig at fans that refuse to go to games for whatever reason. End of.
    One more thing, I see you haven't commented on the part of my post saying... If you're going to take the piss out of me about wether I "Prefer to wear suits" Do it on the open forum, so as everybody can see what a prick you really are!

    Personally I'd rather my season ticket money not be used to pay rent to Wasps but thanks to the council selling the stadium to them we have little choice on that. Who's pitch are we paying to be laid?

    Or are you referring to something that happened years ago which has nothing to do with what money going into the club now is being used for.

    Ok, well since you put end of.

    As you clearly dont understand or process things to see what the conversation was about, past history of posters or any facts before trying to catch people out ( the same as your jsb outrage) then you have a good day being angry about something.

    Refusing to pay rent was a good decision. The move to sixfields cannot be defended but given the councils continued refusal to drop the bloated rent beyond a very short period of time even that has put the club on a sounder footing now.

    The position is still poor but certainly no worse than 8 years ago - in some respects it's actually better.

    Fucking hell!!! Why are you trying to put a timescale on my post ffs. It happened. CCFC were taken away from Coventry by SISU. and if that wasn't bad enough Coventry City FC.(FANS HARD EARNED MONEY) paid for a new pitch to be laid at Northampton. You're as bad as SISU you fucking SISU apologist.

    I jokingly said I wasn't referring to you having knock off club gear as you only wear suits.

    Referring to when you went on about how many you had. (The ones you said you sold for charity)

    But I guess being so angry you can't handle a bit of a joke can you?

    I was trying to explain why you were wrong, and tried to have a joke with you. Obviously mis judged.

    Genuine question Grendel... How long would the company that you work for last, if another company had signed a contract with you then reneged on it?

    Erm, it was hardly taking the piss was it?

    If it offended you, I apologise.

    Some PM's in the past? Yep, do you mean the ones that are threatening, actually threats of violence etc towards other members.

    Do you think my PM was threatening at all?

    It reads:

    I was trying to explain things a bit to you about what the post actually meant, then tried to a have a joke at the end. There was no malice at all in there or threats.

    I wouldn't say I was taking the piss either, I made sure I put a smiley to indicate that.

    Again, if you thought that was threatening or offensive then I can only apologise.

    Didn't you have about 5 user names on GMK.

    As I've said before your username on here is appropriate. Your one of the worst posters on here and latchford one of the worst players I've seen at the club.
