Default Re: Davies leaves for Walsall (Confirmed)

My argument is many fold.
Club membership is strategic and should be WST.

Whereas the WAFC club board is operational and needs more creativity and more ideas just as BV has pointed out. I also think it needs a figure head and also some with money that could put into the club in the right circumstances.
If you recall its how we signed Trundle

Safe can be good - arguably we had a period where safe was good and just what was needed - all business needs an injection of ideas at some point, someone to challenge and even create tension.
Our board has a wide range of skills, knowledge and expertise and Id wager much more than the vast majority of clubs at our level or leagues above.

As for approaching new people - who but a fan would work for the club for free? Not only that but PAGL would also like them to give us money. Would a fan who wanted to get involved in this way not approach the club themselves or already have a relationship to the club?

My point is that Im not sure how we as a club are meant to identify and effectively cold call the very few people willing to work for the club for free, who have the kind of skills you are looking for. I think they would approach the club, or the relationship would perhaps initially be put in place through sponsorship. And we do approach many local businesses about sponsorship. Phil Salmon from AEC is an example of how that can develop.

All I am going to say is it took this new guy from Down the road a disaster to come to the fore. Do we want that?

Keep pouring scorn and cold water on anything that could potentially improve things because we wallow in the complacency we have got it so right and there is no-one left out there.

This constant dissing of new ideas is why we won't progress any further.

Im not pouring cold water or scorn on anything, but he was already a sponsor I believe, which was my point. He sponsored the stadium previously. In my view thats the route to build those bigger relationships.

I do recall attending a meeting before we got control of the club where it was said that fans were going to asked what they could offer the club and a list would be put together that would help save the club a lot of money should we get control. That list would be then used to call for services and purchases.

I wonder if that ever happened? Does it need updating? Is it still used?
