Didn't go but looks on the face of it a great idea however lots of things don't sit right with me.
-I've been paying daft ST prices for yonks and feel I've been doing more than my fair share,where others can now 'jump the queue' by chucking in a ton that I can't afford- I go everywhere to support the team
-can't see why fans should have to buy a chunk to make sure they get a voice- they can go that for free thru the club who have an SLO anyway.
-not convinced the voting structure for our fans rep will be fair- should be a secret ballot and anyone can stand
-annoyed that the new group uses 'waccoe' as its principal contact method. Effectively a few mods and admin can control who contributes.
-Mr Farnham seems to appear and disappear when it suits but is supposed to be the main thrust behind this. Why doesn't he just buy the shares then go a deal with the fans?

More questions I'm sure

Yeah just the one.Seen the you tube vid this morning and its clear that a lot of very loyal and passionate Leeds fans are right behind this,and I'd agree that something radical has to change.
I think personally that Cellino is our best hope,but we wont get in with him by doing owt that could be construed as plotting behind his back.

I'd dead against the same Leeds fans being asked to stump up all the time-particularly those who've been watching the dross on offer home and away.

Things like this are never going to work at Leeds too many people can`t agree( that's not a dig at anyone in particular).
I too have spent thousands over the last 50 years watching Leeds, some good times and bad but that's been by choice.
I requested an invite initially to go but when asked how much was I willing to put in, decided against going myself.
Agree with you on the bit about going behind Cellino`s back will rub him up the wrong way, but I maybe wrong but aren`t they targeting gfh `s 25per cent stake in the club ?

It depends on who 'they' are as I think MFs consortium are after the SPA which means Cellino can't do anything without their say so.
With regards to the fans and the ones who were selected for M1 I think their intentions are honourable,but to a degree they're being manipulated and been taken for a bit of a ride-and now more are being taken in.

The bullying and agenda pushing is clear on other forums where I also think MF has been posting all along as part of his scheme-all of which is designed to get his lot in control and a few chosen fans their place on the board.

I'd like to think I'm way out on this but too much doesn't sit right with me.

I don`t profess to know all the ins and outs that`s going on, mainly things I pick up from social media.
What I do know is like most others want what`s the best for Leeds united and the best way to achieve this I`m not too certain.
One thing hopefully you could explain to me is who is doing the bullying and agenda pushing?.

Another thing you failed to turn up for Mr J - call yourself a true fan[sad]

Good job I didn't go to Watford on Saturday - they were bad enough winning 5-0 last week[rle]

The concept of TL is great, in principal, however, it will amount to nothing.

Even if GFH were to sell, which they won't, Cellino would buy the shares.

The thing that bothers me is that the club was losing circa 12m pa during the GFH days. Even if you take out all the stupid things they paid for... it would still leave a big delta in the finances. Cellino is paying this delta at the moment, how would TL propose to pay for it?

Looks very much like manipulation in steel toe capped boots to me- hey ho.

Postie:

The stuff on social media seems to have stopped now -think someone has had a word-and since things have improved.
Quite prepared to discuss this at our meetings and promote it for those interested.

I've still loads of stuff thats unclear but I'm sure we'll get answers some time soon.I was quite impressed with the speech and presentation that Dylan Thwaites guy did at the meet.

I`ve just got an invite to a meeting with Dylan Thwaites and others, hopefully (work permitting) I will be able to attend and things become a bit clearer to me then.

Whats your view so far Postie? A bit of nonsense on that funny forum but it seems to running along quite nicely.
Still waiting for the final pieces of the jigsaw though.

Postie:
The shares are only in the CBS rather than the football club so it's a bit skewed in my opinion. It would also mean substantially more money needed for a proper fans buyout which is well out of reach I reckon,but I guess the desire is to have some clout at boardroom level.
Had a response from LFU about how voting would go and it's unclear,so would want that clearing up before putting any money in.

Too many open ends at the moment.
