    I agree we're not going to do anything credible with sisu in charge - if if we did nearly make the championship last season. But they show no sign of selling. If they are happy for us to slip through the leagues as long as we're break even then what are we as fans supposed to do?

    I don't know.

    I can see the problem but not the solution.

    They are investing, they are investing in their next court action.

    The only hope we have is by trying to support the club. Maybe sisu will one day go bust and some owners come in. We have to do whatever we can to stop us being closed down.

    As soon as Ranson left we were fucked. Fisher/Seppala and the rest are fucking clueless.

    What is more worrying are the people who believe anything Fisher says i.e. The Butts etc

    You're comparing apples and pears.

    The club can be mismanaged.

    The fact it can afford professional players of a certain standard is because of the income it receives.

    So why, when we were getting 20-22k gates in the Championship, didn't we keep hold of, and add to the quality of players we had then?

    I am comparing us against our competitors. The income CCFC receives is only relevant when used in comparison with other clubs.

    'Benefit' is a relative term.
    What you have to consider is; would the host be better off not having to fight parasitism?
    It is true that the parasite requires the host to survive and in this case it is. So yes, parasite is an
    apt term, I feel.
