Tony, what is your honest view of the Fans Trust?
I have to say from the outset, this board is for the PASB and is not about the Trust.
Saying that the Trust are likely to be the dominant group, in fact only group, on the PASB and so Im happy to answer your question.
I have said this many times before, but I genuinely like the individual members of the Trust Board. I ought to say over half my nominees are Trust members including Board member John Petrie who I have a lot of time for and respect. So, some would wish me to be painted as the anti Christ on this relationship will be off beam.
But as presently constituted I think its a bit of a curates egg. It is clearly suffering the hangover from the end of the administration period. It is searching for a role and I dont think it is quite there. I do think, for whatever its worth, that having a collective leadership went out with Chairman Mao and they have suffered a sense of drift, in part, because of that.
I have wide experience of working on "committees" like the PASB and have always fitted in although not always being mainstream I am a team player.
I hope that helps Greenie.
