Thanks and yes I do realise what buying into C1872 means. Please note though that I am not advocating any particular route here. What I do believe is that more explicit information is required from both C1872 and the football club itself. This thread has already highlighted lots of mixed messages and misunderstandings.
Joining C1872 and making a Legacy Donation puts funds in their coffers allowing them we believe to purchase cheap shares ( in 2021) from Dave King. If they secure all shares as touted C1872 would as of today be the major shareholder. Currently they have no place on the Board and no power, but their position will be strengthened. Any individual making a donation would only have a say in how C1872 business is conducted, not the football club.
Whilst it might be more appealing to invest directly in the football club and feel personally involved you will have minimal influence in decisions and voting. I believe at a corporate shareholding level, voting does not work on a one person one vote basis, it comes down to the value of your holding. C1872 with £millions would have substantially more voting rights than small fry investors. Its why the C1872 (supporters club) exists. Ultimately they want a say in how the Club is run and if King is to be believed, Never Again. In his mind fan interests should be protected hence his proposal.
I know nothing about how C1872 operate or the individuals involved but reading on here, there is a lack of faith in their abilities. As a minimum, with this issue now before us, I would expect them to be promoting themselves to a wider audience unless they think they are confident of raising £13.5 million from their existing 7000 members - unlikely unless they have a sugar daddy.
My previous comment remains pertinent. They need to be communicating with our global fan base setting out the details of the deal they are after, what their plans are for raising the cash, how they operate and what it means to us individually so we are all clear on the way forward.
Is the main Club Board in support of what is being proposed. Wouldn't be a great start if they were not in favour.
So £500 is what they are thinking will get in the amount of £££'s required to raise this money ?? I must admit I thought it would be higher.
If my quick calculation is correct it seems to be 26,000 members required, i have probably made a balls of that.
To be Honest I was glad we (Scotland) scraped through on pens, but the way some are reacting, like it's we won the Euros.
At the end of 90 mins I thought, thank feck there's only one Bear involved in this downfall and tarriers can't blame Gers players for this debacle.
In the end it worked out fine, but what's far more important, Scotland qualifying for the Euros or the Glasgow Rangers winning 55 titles (stopping 9.75 in a tainted row)? We all know the answer.
