Oh rightho
Perhaps I got it wrong then .
Is it that people not used to commitee meetings are too afraid / nervous to speak?
They need to find a mouthpiece that isn't ,to conteract as what some might think are nodding donkeys (Churchie)

I do hope to attend on Thursday. Whether it is or is not, the right place to vent our spleens, we will see. I would love to end up sitting between Dixienormous and Phils an Alki. They are always forthcoming with opinions on RP and will help me to express myself!
Fans views are split. The Clappers point to our balance sheet, whilst the frothers think that our major assets should be on the pitch. A lively night.

WST board members have to win a vote every 3 years. If they don't get voted on, they can't be on the club board. Our model of ownership is democratic. Pity only 10% of members vote. You get what you vote for

Correct!!!

The squabbling on RP about asking questions reminds me of staff meetings with the boss, when the staff say nothing until after the meeting, then spend an hour complaining by the coffee machine...

The AGM is a perfect place to ask politely worded but pointed questions about the way the club that's financed mostly by FANS is struggling to cross the line.

Agree with your last paragraph, definitely.

RRM, trying to see your point of view here - why don’t you think the AGM is an appropriate place to ask questions?

Well I hope so - but it does need folk to attend and ask those awkward questions to the board.

I noted John Mills comments in Saturday's programme about 'excitable posters on social media platforms who preach from positions of no risk or responsibility'. There should be nothing wrong with being 'excitable' about the club provided comments don't get personal or abuse towards the directors of course.

I am normally a happy clapper but if I am of the opinion that if we don't consider taking a risk on getting some decent players in we will have to accept non-league football for the foreseeable future.

As mentioned, AGM is usually a run of the mill event with overview of previous 12 months and election of officers.
But, at a club I was involved with, we introduced a Q&A session at the end of the formalities.
I'd argued long and hard for this as the Club was being accused of being a closed shop ( which it was) and apathy had set in.

I think if you express undying loyalty to WFC, are a fierce critic of its running, but do nothing about it, then you are a tw*t. Why? because either you don't have undying loyalty to the club or you don't think the Club is being run in a way that it needs saving from, make your mind up.

I think the Club is being run better than it has been for years, perhaps ever. I don't have undying loyalty to it, I love it a bit, but I'm unfaithful. I thus avoid the tw*t categorisation, I'm more in the sh*t category.

So Mr Mills is taking the "us and them" approach. Looks like a thin veiled dig at fans who are less important and less intelligent than him and his board colleagues.

not a very good comment to make but not a surprise coming from that man

LOL. Do you have a list of fans who have expressed their undying loyalty to the club then? Or does the club keep hold of that? Who has ever said that? More gold right here, dear me.

So going by this warped logic... If you ever criticise a local MP, Councillor, Prime Minister etc you should 'do something about it'?
Which you've done have you? because everyone has criticised one of the above.

Bonkers, stark raving bonkers.
