this ain’t gonna work, the whole thing is geared to ousting the chairman, OK, they get their wish, DC walks away, then what the fuck are the other options? Have a think about you set of c**ts (the Trust that is). 

It’s down to you now Garry!!! OH, AND FUCK THE EFL!!!!

Just to add to Reesh's comments.

The WOTM bloke has axes to grind with DC, sending open letters to the club etc and looks to be a grade A tool. That alone killed off my initial interest and when they announced the tie up with WendyShyte, i was out 100%.

Still I got thesurvey, but the questions are pre-loaded with bias towads the outcome they want.

Tickets to expensive & DC is clueless

There is scope for a neutral fans' group but this certainly aint it.

Kev - would you consider reanimating WTID to serve a truly independentmandate towards bringing the club & fans closer?

EDIT: In fact, we've already got a platform and potentially 17k twitter followers to make this effective. Give Terry something to do...

Still got the Ltd company - dormant

However not personally going to get involved in anything - too much real life work to do and geographically it wouldn't work.

However if anybody wants the company they can have it for nowt  

Happy clapping for 4 years more than Emre

I did ponder the Sheffield Wednesday Supporters Club idea a few years ago which is my middle of the road idea that I personally think is preferable. No politics, concentrate on the mundane matters of supporter experience, doing stuff around Matchday

Be nice, open dialogue with fans & club.

Provide a platform for outing idiots like Price of Football, Stir Bias etc

Get yourself in there.

Hello,

Firstly, a massive thank you to everyone who has filled in the first survey so far. We’ve had over 1,300 respondents, giving their varied views on club governance and ticket prices.

If you haven’t already filled it in, you have until midday on Monday to do so. This is a great opportunity to air your views – we are listening.

Click here to fill in the survey

Once it is closed we will begin analysing the results, which we will then share with you all.

As we’ve mentioned, this is the first in a series of surveys. The next one, which will cover the matchday experience and what you would like to see from a Supporters’ Trust, will be released soon – we will post it on here when it is live.

We also really appreciate the comments and discussions that have happened on both this thread and the other one – as expected, there has been a wide range of opinions on both the club and the Trust. We welcome criticism and it will all be taken into account as we move forward to form policies and build up to recruiting members.

If you want more information on the Supporters’ Trust then feel free to head to our website, where there is a detailed list of FAQs as well as past board minutes. There’s also an opportunity to sign up to our mailing list, to make sure you stay up to date on the Trust’s activities. 

Building a new Sheffield Wednesday Supporters’ Trust. Find out more: swfctrust.co.uk

Serious question.
Are the next two surveys coming off the back of comments made on here and other forums?
If so then be open about it. Hold your hands up and say maybe we got the first one wrong and you might win a few more over.

Cos I'd have thought "what would you like to see from a supporters Trust" would have been the first question sent out. That way you could adapt to those you wish to join, rather than seemingly (if most comments across all forums suggest) push an agenda that could be deemed as anti club and which one of the interim board already has previous in pursuing.

Exactly, Ty.

"This is our vision, but what do you want to see" is a far more powerful message than sending out preloaded surveys in an effort to substantiate and empower yourself

Completed it, but sense it might be used to criticize DC and pricing. He will price things in whatever way he thinks is best, after investing tens of millions I think he has that right. 

I'll never buy from AXA again!

I've also noticed there's a distinct lack of challenge to what's been said on here and even on Stalk.
We're your potential recruitment base but you're not doing anything to promote or change our point of view. This just reinforces the view of insularity.
I take it that it's Tom Hocking that's posting, as he's the one linked to the communication and engagement pieces in the board minutes.
However, this is minuted in the last set.
Appointment of Spokespeople
Agreed to ‘park’ this conversation until the work on the Communications and Engagement Strategy has been completed.

So I'll address Tom directly.
This is a forum mate. You can see its full of debate and most of it is well thought out and relevant. So don't just write "We welcome criticism and it will all be taken into account." Debate with us. Put your case forward as to why and try and win us over. To say you welcome criticism but not to challenge it just says you're giving it a cursory nod but it's not going to change much.

I'll take one more piece from your last post.
"...as we move forward to form policies and build up to recruiting members."
surely it should be the other way round. Form a membership that can vote on policies? Because, at the moment, it's just the six of you voting and that's a closed shop. You run the risk, as many on here are already highlighting, that the policies you six agree on could seriously marginalise your membership uptake and just attract those that agree with you.
A trust is supposed to be representative of all fans.

I sincerely hope you post back, Tom, even if you create a personal account to do it with.
As others have posted, this has an opportunity to gain legs but at the moment you're running before crawling and in completely the wrong direction.

In the meantime I look forward to reading the minutes of last Tuesday's board meeting. I thought they would have been up by now, seeing as you have to publish them as part of the FCA regulations.

And I hope the team building is going well.
"In terms of board development agreed we need to focus on team building and governance."
