Now 6 days - surely the bl**dy council could give us clue...or don't they have any?



This is not of the councils doing, they offered a deal which you have seen. The owner of YCK turned down the deal, the new directors are now trying to reopen negotiations.

An analogy. Imagine you are buying a car from Coopers BMW and you agree the deal and then you go go back the following day and ask them to put mud flaps on they agree, then a couple of days later you go back and ask for floor mats and they decide enough is enough and say take it or leave it and you leave the negotiation.


Is it up to the vendor to open the negotiation again?

Completely incorrect

The meeting was an open meeting therefore JG could not have been refused entry, had I been aware that he was back from his holiday I would have personally invited him.

 In September the council gave a presentation to the football supporters in the Pitchside Bar, at Bootham Crescent why did he not orgasise the same in Bar 13.

Now we're getting there - Press today - City Owners launch bid for Knights - after been approached by KISS !!

So no conspiracy theory there then....

The only conspiracy was to get things moving, the new "directors" were appointed on 29th January the season kicks off on Sunday and they only had a preliminary meeting today. I was able to arrange a meeting in a week. I have been accused that the meeting was so slick so it must have been contrived - having worked as a marketing professional for 30 years that is what I do - professional, forceful presentations.

The owner of the club went on holiday which is his right, but hardly the time to go away when his business is in jeopardy through having no where to play or train.

Just to clarify the room hire for the meeting was paid for by me personally, not by KISS.

Sorry I didn’t hear anything new in the debate last night.

Was an invitation given to the club to have a representative on the panel last night, I’m guessing not..

As only the Council and the club directors know whats been said behind closed doors, it was unfair to put club directors ( attending as members of the public not in an official capcity) on the spot to divulge facts and figures and the council representatives knew that and used that to deflect flac from themselves.

If you were moving to new business premises I don’t think you would buy in from seeing a pretty picture painted by the builder I think you would want to know a few more facts on running costs etc

At the end of the day I still have reservation that the council have the ability to bring this scheme in on time & budget, past schemes like the Barbican spring to mind. Therefore the immediate problem of where the club are going to play now far outweighs any argument over the stadium.

I hope and pray the meeting on Wednesday brings this a step closer to a conclusion for all concerned

As it was a public meeting in a public place no one was excluded, before the meeting started I asked the only director present who is one of only two directors registered at companies house if they wished to participate in the meeting and sit at the front. The invitation was declined.
