    Why do all they work when it's easier to find a rich dude?

    Don't get me wrong, I'd love to be able fork out 500 a seaso to be part of the community group that own some share of the club - but it's up to us to force the issue, not wait till the FFA do it. Am I willing to do the legwork? no. So I'm not gonna bitch that no one else is either.


    Complaining that they won't set it up, when we wont either is pointless.


    One of the biggest a issues facing our club is that we are all sitting waiting for some else to sort it, while complaining that no-one is trying to sort it.

    Perpetual negativity without any action to force change is what really holds us back.

    If we aren't willing to get up and force change, constant negativity from the sidelines does nothing to help. It's like the active support issues expanded.
    Some fair points raised Gaz and I agree the football community in this town just aren't proactive and robust enough. Having said that I think you also need some big personalities and individuals who can galvanize support, provide leadership and get things happening.
    Having ongoing Members Forums and having likes of Griff and Andy Roberts involved would have been a good starting point but this should have been happening 6-7 months ago. I feel the horse had already bolted now.

    Why don't you contact Roberts or Griff to see what they think?
    I'm serious, they are both easy to find. It might answer some of your questions.
    Don't die wondering.

    I may be wrong, but didn't de Bohun say on the Daily Football Show the other week that he was committed to finalising it before he left the job?

    Word from my source is that Martin Lee has completed the purchase of the club for an undisclosed fee. The originally quoted price of $5 million was not final - as FFA wanted to recoup some of their costs lost on the club. It is believed that the fee is somewhere around the $7.3 million mark.

    Club will also announce a new CEO who is none other than ex-gypo coach - and current mayor of gypoland - Lawrie McKinna.

    McKinna is the one who helped broker the deal after Lee originally came to Australia with the intention of buying the scum - however he was put off by Mike Charlesworth's $15 million asking price for the club.

    Oh and he also realised Gosford is a dump.

    McKinna.

    this will be fun.

    He's Coastie through and through


    BUT
    He's been burnt bad by them and the salt is flowing - there's no fury like Scotsman scorned.
    He help Gorman build that club at the start of the "new football" and they were pretty bloody good at linking with the community etc
    He played for the breakers.
    They wont exist in three years time anyway.
