    I find it at best odd and at worst mildly sinister that he's not allowed to be a dissenting voice from the majority opinion. I don't think he's questioning Patrick's motives is he, he's merely expressing the opinion that he disagrees with the adherence to a policy that he believes means we sell every player we develop as soon as we receive a substantial offer. And for what it's worth, if that's what he is saying I agree with him - although acknowledging at the moment based purely on league position it's 'working', I think that's more down to the remarkable achievements of the manager than the strategy itself.

    Don't you routinely refer to him as Johnno?

    As one of the most outspoken contributors to the board you should go to the meeting with PC and GG (cringe alert). You won't though will you? All mouth as per usual.

    It saddens me that fans refer to players as ‘assets’.

    Having briefly clicked "show ignored content" out of curiosity, I've been confronted by this pile of disrespectful abusive drivel. Even though I've had ignore on, I've still bitten. Better switch it back on before I destroy my forehead with a concrete wall.

    When I hear of an offer turning the owner's head I don't envision him thinking....
    oooh that will buy a shiny new speedboat
    I think...
    ooh that will allow us to marginally compete better on wages etc and make us more financially stable.
    Which it has.

    Possibly because it will give you the opportunity to voice your dissatisfaction with all things BFC to the main men

    How do these Q & A work just curious
    Do you have to give someone your question in advance and the questions are then vetted.
    Are you told what you can or can’t ask about before hand
    Which is a totally normal procedure for those you read or see in maqazines ,newspapers ,online, tv .

    Obviously if someone asks you a question in real time you may need a while to think about it or may need to look up some information to answer it properly
    Having questions in advance means more questions can be answered in given time

    Also stops questions being asked which they won’t or can’t talk about ,
    With answers like no comment or can’t talk about that at the moment taking up time.

    That isn't what Trolls like Conan, Hemmsie and Tyrone actually want though.

    Remember when you were trolling me by PM because I disliked a few of your posts? That was funny.

    Well you come out with the same drivel on here time and time again and you have done for a long time..... why hasn't Patrick found a buyer? Why was out players sold last Jan? Why did we sell to robo? He wanted to stay? Plus all the sly digs aimed at our owner. You may feel better for going and asking these questions after all that's what these events are for... but you won't you will just keep posting the same stuff over and over..... in other words put up or shut up.

    I think it might be looked down upon if I was to start asking controversial questions at a meeting which will essentially be a black slapping exercise.

    In any case, we will only receive the information which the club wish to disclose so it probably wouldn't answer my questions. Essentially they will be politician's answers.

    "Put up or shut up". You're so gullible and compliant you would have been one of the first foot soldiers in Nazi Germany.
