I can't imagine the likes of Shepherd or Moat wanting in this - they'll want more control for investing more cash. 1+1 isn't something they would be interested in.

The more and more I think about it, I 'could' invest some of my pension from my days when I worked at the Uni. I'd have to check it out with the wife first, however.

If, for example, Barry Moat puts in £60m: will he have the controlling vote? I know it's an extreme example.

No, not under the way it's structured (as I understand it)

You and I could put in £1500 each and have more say in theory.

Well, these are my thoughts exactly. Is it not more likely that the NUST will push for a split of, say, 60% NUST and the remainder to be covered by a large investor? To my mind, it's more realistic.

how much are they looking for off each investor?


Think its a minimum of 1.5k


£1500 is achievable at £10 a piece on the forum.


we should be looking to buy a few shares.

I like that idea actually. Maybe we could start a thread similar to the donations thread?

ooops forgot to donate to this board, dave!!! where do I go to donate.

Aye, i think N-O investing could be intersting.

Anyway. Would they accept that? Surely, if that were the case the likes of Moat (or whoever) could stump up £50m and wangle it through 'individuals' and buy control of the club?

talk about a put off.
Bullshitters misrepresent themselves to their audience not as liars do, that is, by deliberately making false claims about what is true. In fact, bullshit need not be untrue at all.

Rather, bullshitters seek to convey a certain impression of themselves without being concerned about whether anything at all is true. They quietly change the rules governing their end of the conversation so that claims about truth and falsity are irrelevant.

Isn't the German model that no-one person/organisation can own more than 49% of the the club (with the other 51% being fan controlled)? I think Hamburg are ran in such a way.
The truth points to itself

Anyway. About the N-O consortium (:lol:)--would there have to be equal donations? For example, cp40 puts in £5k and I chip in with a fiver, would we get equal say? :lol:

Is it? then it wouldnt be worth the forum clubbing together, wed be better off buying ourselves, or for example 2 or 3 people clubbing together to raise 1500.

Only to an extent though. It depends which decisions will be made by shareholders and which will be made by the elected board.

Once the board is in place it's probable that the majority of the decisions will be made by them, so if Moat takes a place on the board obviously his say increases over yours and mine.

But then you would be individuals. The advantage of the forum is that we could have a collection of 20 votes that vote one way.

Er no,  We all chip in then vote on a rep.  That rep then votes on what gets agreed here.  That person attends the meetings etc.
