There seem to be some posters on here and certain other forums that clearly believe that the NOPM approach still has validity and purpose. My view on this is it is at best hopelessly misguided and at worst detrimental to the club and its very existence is being threatened. There seems a strange view that less supporters will mean Sisu will hasten their exit. I struggle to see how this actually has any basis in logic at all. Sisu have a history of not actually having any interest in the consumer at all. The move to Northampton alone demonstrates that. A few non attendees will not even be noticed by them. As stated in a previous post the club has effectively been removed from the investment portfolio and exists as part of the Group in name only. Self-funding is an improbable task for a struggling league one football club. It is inevitable that players will be sold and any revenue from sales retained to keep the clubs sustainability for this and future years. Cash flow and supporting non playing overheads need to be covered. The notion transfer fees can be used to re-purchase is fanciful. In theory the budget should be the same as last year but for any sustainability, the club needs to retain some funds. There is a total lack of awareness of the problem the club faces. It’s far bigger than Joyless, Timmy or that German chap. Sisu remains I assume to continue the legal focus. Without that they may well have folded by now. As long as we can sustain they will remain. Sustain we can but costs will be cut as long as attendances decline. Fan support is directly related to spend on the pitch. The club is in crises as it is being attacked by all sides. The Council have clearly joined forces with Wasps. Rather like the NOPM campaigners they see this as a way of forcing the owners out of town. However, the Council have never been a friend of this football club. The recent actions, though, show a new level of contempt for the local tax payers who follow this proud club. Instrumental in blocking any opportunity to move to the BPA, building a loss making Olympic Pool in the centre the club uses for its Academy and demanding money not legally owed are new depths even they, I thought , would not plunge to. Wasps are the ultimate franchise. No interest in customer loyalty, no interest in heritage. The view Wasps would take this club as a League One club with its loss making potential is fantasy. Wasps purchase very little. They acquire at bottom price and look to build upwards from a zero cost base. The latest venture into Netball illustrates this perfectly. They will not buy this club. They may, however, acquire a liquidated organisation. Here is the risk. Wasps would take the name and build from zero. It would cost nothing and could e profitable. The impact on the club would be cataclysmic. A former member of the PL rattling round in a 30,000 concrete shell playing clubs even Nuneaton Town would consider inferior. The ability to build from a zero cost base would fit to their model perfectly. Sisu as an ultimate act of vengeance may comply. Will it really damage the reputation or enhance it to high risk investors? It would for sure send a statement. It should not be discounted. The death scenario I really believe is not that far away. It is clear that sustainability is not achievable if competitive position is to be retained and it is clear that enemies and vultures are circling. The owners themselves are not friends either and may be complicit in this scenario. I do believe the club can be saved if interest is there from the fanbase. NOPM will not work – it will never work. Increase fans will improve revenue for the club and will at least make the club look credible as a going concern. I suspect this is a forlorn hope, however. The Dance of Death is close. All parties are joining in the Dance – I really believe RIP is not far away.
