    It does, even though it seems it should only reflect on Meadow and their cowardly gimp of a club general manager.

    I'm boycotting the bar!

    Could be a way forward but i'd be keen on doing something that would hurt Meadow and not the actual club. i.e. if there is a bar boycott will reduced revenue lead to (another) playing budget cut?

    Last time I had a drink in the bar, a bouncer was hassling us to leave for the crime of being there at a minute past seven o'clock, so I'm not really inclined to put anything more in their tills anyway.

    Meadows don't own the club, they are facilitators for the ground & associated companies.

    So who owns the club?

    DHFC Ltd, but there's an umbrella of companies and stakeholders

    So Meadow doesn't have a continuation of the deal that Hadleys had with (presumably) Nick McCormack to buy out Dulwich Hamlet Football Club Ltd in the event of planning permission being granted, mentioned in this article?

    I get that it is all deliberately murky but I think it would be a positive to know who the increasing ire should be aimed at. It would be good to know who the actual organ grinder is to Chris's bullshitting monkey.

    But he had agreed to sell to Hadleys in the event of planning permission being granted (it would seem), so i'm wondering if it's the same deal with Meadow. And if that's the case, is Meadow trying to suck every last penny out of the club's operation for him as part of that agreement?

    So who the heck is Nicholas David Mccormack and what else does he own?

    Um, Nick McCormack..in effect the 'previous owner', who still retains control, with the agreement of Meadows...

    There is an updated MOU signed by Meadow, with the same commitment. It's just an MOU mind... No legal obligations.

    All bar takings go to Healey Developments. If you pay by card, then you'll see that on the receipt.

    This account is pretty much balanced (I think), going by the filing in July. There are no details on what the assets and liabilities are.

    See HEALEY DEVELOPMENT SOLUTIONS LIMITED - Filing history (free information from Companies House)

    I understand all costs associated with running clubhouse are paid by this account.

    The club account continues to run up debts.

    Meadow's PR continues to be non-existent. They are doing an amazing job of trying their best to take 97% support for their plans and shitting all over it. No idea why a monthly update on plans and club operations is not possible...or even every two months? A bit of transparency and honesty can work wonders.

    Who can know for sure, but money at the bar pays for clubhouse running costs, so not using the bar could have implications for club. Oh actually, there are people know for sure. It's Meadow. Care to comment / update fans on ANYTHING?

    The comment about having a charity game forced upon them is beneath contempt, and just highlights what they are really about.

    The latest accounts for Dulwich Hamlet Football Club Ltd, posted on 29 June, show (if I can read these right) debts at £442,000, up from £396,000 the previous year. I presume that the increased debt is due to Meadow or a subsidiary?

    I believe the last "update" from Meadow/Healey/Greendale was in December: Statement from Meadow Residential regarding the current position with regard to the planning proposals at Dulwich Hamlet Football Club and the variation of Section 106 agreement - News - Dulwich Hamlet Football Club

    To remind people we (the Trust) have an open dialogue with Meadow so if fans want us to ask questions on their behalf then we're happy to help. info@dhst.org.uk

    There was a question at the AGM as to whether the Trust could publish the research, that was referred to in the Q&A, on the web of companies that make up DHFC and associated businesses.

    It was suggested at the time that DHST would check with Meadow, out of courtesy, whether this would be ok. Has this happened?

    You could also perhaps ask that how much they value maintaining support of fans for the redevelopment? If it's still important, why is communication on operations at the club or on the development only done through the media and not direct or regular?

    Given that the appeal is only there months away, what more (if anything) can fans do to support the redevelopment (if they so wish)?

    If the appeal is won, how do they envisage the transition to fan ownership, based on the CBS model, will take place as per the MOU?

    If the appeal is lost and given the growing debts, how does Meadow intend to live up to their promise in paragraph 9 of the MOU to secure fan ownership and financial sustainability of DHFC in East Dulwich regardless of the outcome of the appeal?

    FA Cup under 18
    Dulwich Hamlet out - 1-0 up for 90 mins but lose 3-2 to Carlshalton Athletic

    Absolutely fantastic save by Hamlet U18 goalkeeper Dan Abbott
    also nearly saved the penalty in 90th min

    we missed loads of chances

    unlucky to lose

    Quite a big bit in episode 2 of Sky's The Next Jamie Vardy on Nathan Green. Good interview and a fair bit of match day action from Royston at home last season. Lots of shots of people from on here and some of the mini-riot on the pitch in the second half.

    Little bit of Ethan action for England C too.
