while I agree with a lot of this, I would make the point that the patrons group have not bought a majority of the shares therefore don't have overall control, its very much based on the "three legged stool" approach. The club still have major shareholders (Rawlins, SA, MR) and because of the %ages have a right to have their interests represented on the board if they so wish - this may be why GW and RB are on the new board, although that is complete speculation by me. Its going to take time for the FSS to build a membership and appoint long term board members - the quickest way to make this happen is for as many of us as possible to sign up.
I share your frustration with the Rawlins - first trip to the club and some heat from fans and they decide to take a back seat, not really the leadership I thought/hoping we would get from them.
as many have said it will be a massive step in the right direction for Holt and AT to be shown the door swiftly.
