    You want a team to support yet you expect it to run on invisible money. You remind me of that film 'one flew over the cuckoos nest'.

    Think if you check the average age of each team that day you'll find they were very similar.

    In my world criticize is correct, in yours criticise is correct.
    If you don't know why you bother then I suggest it's not worth the effort. Just like this response really.

    It's my opinion the earth is flat, staplers are made of hamsters and Mathiu Manset was our greatest ever signing. If you don't agree then I'll kick up a huge fuss and flounce off the site.

    The more money the club lose the quicker they will want to sell it and the cheaper the price. Remember, we do have a buyer in waiting out there

    Why would that make them want to sell it quicker?

    What are you basing all of this on when you talk like it's fact?

    Doesn't matter, people who went to Wembley were giving money to CCFC by buying tickets. The majority were quite happy to give CCFC money regardless of owners.

    Because they won't want to keep throwing money into an empty black hole. The club is basically worthless so there is nothing left to sell. Some return is better than no return

    That's why they will be selling players and cutting costs, so they aren't throwing money in and it will tick over on it's own.

    It was a long awaited day out for fans, glory hunters and people wanting an excuse to experience Wembley. Not really a true reflection of the fanbase

    No, it was the majority quite happy to give CCFC money regardless of owners. No matter how you try to spin it.

    You are also going on about believing in Santa alongside preaching things you have no idea if they are true or not.

    Yes, with people that are still throwing money at the club. If all revenue ended tomorrow they would have no choice but to sell the club. They could liquidate the club and lose everything but with someone waiting to buy that would be very unlikely.

    It is never going to be the case that nobody goes to support CCFC. It's like speaking that everything will be OK when we have the premier league money and they go.

    40K+ people threw money at the club not so long ago when we had the same owners.

    Nope, people just wanted a well deserved day out and who can blame them for that? They didn't return to the next home game which says it all really

    As long as people are putting money in they have no reason to sell

    if people want to starve sisu of money thats fine. but they should not have gone to the checkatrade final

    why did they go? because it was exciting,it wa sa huge match,it was a nice use of weekend

    what they dont realise is that those SAME reasons apply to a league 2 match vs fucking barnet for alot of fans.

    I want a day out every time I go to watch CCFC, it's just at the Ricoh not Wembley.

    Why can't you accept that people were more than happy to give CCFC money regardless of owners?

    There is never ever going to be a situation where nobody at all goes, even more so if we do well this season. If we are flying high then a lot of people will go to games whether it is SISU or not.

    People wanted a big day out and put their differences aside. They haven't come back which is evidence enough for me.

    It's True that fans will always turn up regardless which I'm not knocking people for doing so. I'm just making the point that if they didn't then they would have no other option than to offload the club one way or another

    You still don't know that 100% though do you?

    No, the evidence is that the majority were happy to give CCFC money when we went to Wembley. If we do well next season then more and more people will go regardless of who owns us, if we got to the playoff final for example then there would be tens of thousands there, regardless of who owns us.

    As I said, it's piss easy to sit back living in Cornwall about not going.

    We have to face it there are people who just want see the club die as a means to get rid of Sisu, if the club was no more, they are willing to say I told you so.

    Another day out which wouldn't reflect much on the gates next season either way

    The club is dying with SISU and has been for many years, it's a long painful death.

    It is still people giving money to CCFC though isn't it?

    You seem to have your fingers in your ears when things like that get mentioned though, especially as you giving it loads about the "majority" all of the time.

    The majority went to Wembley and gave CCFC their money, they would if we started doing well.

    No, it's people putting aside their differences and being lured by a day out at Wembley. The league is the bread and butter and doesn;t reflect your argument

    Call it what you want or dress it up as you want, it is people giving CCFC money.... Of course it reflects the argument when you keep going on about what majorities are and aren't doing.

    You can't pick and choose or exclude things when it suits.
