So easy to kick a man when he's down guys. The Trust was a great idea after Save the 'Ton and things could and should have been so different. The wrong folk got control sadly.

Turned into worthless Morton shares mate. Fans were supposed to get a say in the Club but Rae had other ideas. Wasn't helped by the two fuds they had as trust directors either. Don't get ny bro started on them!! Same will happen with MCT if you ask me.

He said he 'chucked it' when he saw the direction things were going in eight years ago! He was scathing about successive Chairmen, and called the incumbent a 'plank of wood'!

Says it all I guess.

I know someone who thought they had chucked it but it turned out his automatic membership renewal was still taking a tenner from his bank every year.

Can't blame the Trust for that!

You can if he told the Trust he was chucking it.

Back on topic and point 3 of the letter. Can anybody make sense of that? If you put in £500 are you getting it back with interest. Sounds too good to be true.

Pretty sure there was a separate bit in the accounts - some fund that couldn't get touched for normal days to day stuff. Any accountants out there?

I take that as the Loan Note holders getting a large amount of shares in the club, to the value of their investment plus interest. Hard to see how that could be possible given that the shares are worth far less than when they bought them. I also presume that the money the Trust hold in the bank, normally between £10k and £20k, will be divided among the Loan Note holders.

I'm more concerned about point 4. If there's anything left to enable the Community Trust to receive anything from this then there's clearly been some jiggery pokery going on.

Nail on head QD especially when (last time they published anything) the treasurer is a Community Trust trustee. I smell shite!

The thing with point 4 is not even the right information. Any funds can be donated to a local organisation but it doesn't need to be the CT, that's for the members to decide.

It's semi-literate gobbledegook. I don't think they mean the GMCT HAS to get any surplus - but hey, a surplus when there are guys out there who loaned £120k - c'mon let's get real here!

That's exactly what it says Tommy. I'd rather it went to MCT, who would at least make good use of it.

But it's merely a proposal (like all the rest of the crap)!

Only on paper Tommy. The Trust have always had a knack of holding enough proxy votes to push through whatever they liked to. This will be no different.

Correct JB - but I WAS a very interested member like so many others until Mr Robinson assumed control. We trusted him initially.
