Everyone except those 30 odd: Get back in step!
Where are you getting those numbers from? If they were only 35 short, I thought we were talking significantly more than 37 people having signed up.

Thereís also presumably some people who arenít WST members who want change but arenít willing to sign up for the Trust because of the well-documented issues.

Finally, as Baz has pointed out on other threads, there may be people who want AN EGM, just not THIS EGM - the anonymity of those proposing it appears to have put some people off, while others want a change in ownership model which isnít being called for here.

Do you really think, looking at our attendances, there are only 30 odd people who are unhappy with the way things are going?

The anonymity may have put some off, but I still don't blame those taking part for wanting to stay anonymous. Not everyone can handle that level of abuse or threats to their job.

Yeah, I donít blame them myself, but itís a sign of how toxic things seem to be, with some vile behaviour from people on both sides of the divide. (Thinking about stuff like the Ďparodyí account of a teenage boy set up by someone who doesnít seem to like Spencer.)

Indeed, it's gone both ways. It's worrying as it makes it less likely that we'll see any change.

Yes - the figure quoted by me was misleading, up to a point. However, on 30th October, Pete Jones clarified that at least 5% of the ADULT membership (then standing at 2,640 plus the kids) would have to vote for an EGM before one could be called. 5% of 2,640 is 132. On 1st November, a further 35 Members were still required to reach that magical 5% figure indicating that only 97 people had actually put their names/membership numbers forward.

There may have been a few more since then, but nowhere near enough. Say about 100 people out of an adult membership of 2,640. Does that sound to you like an overwhelming vote for an EGM?

My point was that on RP, the same few posters repeatedly criticise what's happening at the club, without many replying, which creates the totally false picture that everybody wants the EGM.

I've said previously that there are obvious areas of weakness behind the scenes, and that a set of discussion points put before a meeting could result in sufficient sensible motions to be presented at a subsequent AGM, but chucking out a request for an EGM based on nothing more that complaints is the same as an opposition party at a General Election doing nothing more than complain about the Government without putting forward its own policies for the future in a clearly worded manifesto - i.e. it's a no-hope strategy!

Good post.

Oh, completely agree that itís not. I think the big issue is that a few thousand people are unhappy enough to just stop going, as weíve seen from the massive drop in attendances. Yes, we always lose some fans through the season, but this is much worse than normal.

In response to your earlier Ďget back in stepí comment, I think people would be more likely to do so if stuff like the DSA bad-mouthing, constant poor communication, lack of willingness to quickly follow motions voted for at an AGM, the boardís overconfidence in themselves as having all necessary skills, and the seeming want to shut down criticism (as shown by John Mills banning a fan from SO78 for being critical, and Pete Jones not requesting that people heckling critical questioners ar the recent meeting) showed any sign of being dealt with.

It does seem that the EGM is dead

Hopefully though the board will have read the proposals and take onboard a counter viewpoint with some suggestions on how to improve

Interesting read in tonight's Evening Standard on AFC Wimbledon trust ownership model and the need for outside investment.
