Meadow Statement Nov 2017
Fantastic structured dialogue
How much are Meadow paying you, Kevin?
Given that your self proclaimed role is all about fan engagement why are you making so little effort here?
If I was to mark your Structured Dialogue and Supporter Communications skills right now, you'd be hitting a round 1/10. You've come over as lazy and disinterested in the fans.
(note: to responses not the statement)
Kevin, you could have saved yourself a lot of time and just written:
Give us what we want or the club will perish.
You don't think other property speculators have tried this approach with a Council
Rarely seen it so blatant, but never seen it succeed
Meadow must be paying you a small fortune for being the lightning conductor for their avaricious shitgibbonry, Kevin.
Is it worth it? Can't be good for your reputation.
If only Meadows/other owners had, at some point, shared the books like the supporters trust have been asking for five years. Then we wouldn't have to take it on trust that the finances are unstable.
Eta: I see Mishi has covered this more fully (and accurately) in his post in the other thread!
Like the song, And it's low lies fielded by Kevin Rye...
Give us our planning or we will push DHFC out of business,
and added "wha wha wha whaaaaa!" at the end
He hasn't bothered replying. He must be too busy attending to more pressing Structured Dialogue and Supporter Communications matters elsewhere.
I'm happy to meet up with Kevin for some 'Structured Dialogue' South London stylie, just name the time and place
He's probably off bidding for work with the Oystons, Roland Duchatelet or Mike Ashley...
No doubt his valuable contribution will be added to the clubs expenditure as PR.
that is a shocking ransom note.
Which bits of the stadium were unusable previously?
Ho ho ho:
Focus Groups for Football Clubs – some lessons
Full disclosure and breakdown of all costs and income please Kevin Rye
I think (in fact I'm convinced) that there are costs being apportioned that do not directly relate to the running costs of DHFC.
This supposed wage bill of £8k a week leading to an annual loss of £170k sounds very fishy indeed. Only last month it appears to have been £5k a week, and the annual loss was £150k according to the comprehensive article in the Independent:
If Meadow are paying £8k a week the obvious solution is to cut that to £5k, still very generous for our level, saving around £150k a year. But if the club is breaking even and flourishing nicely in the current ground there's little obvious need for the new one, leaving aside the fact that it does need upgrading in a number of areas at considerable cost due to insufficient maintenance being carried out since it first opened. I simply don't trust anything they tell us. We don't know how the figures stack up because they don't disclose any details - for all we know the club could be perfectly viable as it is, but if that's the case it doesn't suit their vested interests.
I don't think it's right that a structured dialogue and supporter communications person can just invent figures and not back them up.
That's the kind of shifty practice that only an unstructured dialogue and supporter incommunications person would do.
It was a fucking liberty revealing to the world what our wage bill is, whatever the figure. I'm pretty sure Gavin would rather that wasn't in the public domain.
I was just about to post that myself. Thanks. Kev
Care to actually start answering them?
Gavin himself put a figure in the public domain when interviewed by Jack Pitt-Brooke for the Independent. It just wasn't the same figure Meadow are now quoting!
Indeed he did. Kevin Rye let me know when you have the breakdown old chap. I'm looking forward to a spot of financial analysis.
