Looking for Guy Fawkes to finish the job
Personally I am loathe to criticize the Trust Board as individuals since firstly they did dismantle the rock on City's back that was Tis' roller and secondly they do much more for the club than I do.
It was the Trust members that dislodged the Tis roller with the AGM Resolution which the Trust Board did not support and actively resisted. After it was passed the Chair (Martin Weiler) did say at a follow up TB meeting that the vote must be respected and as events have turned out the TB seems to have pressed the matter to a conclusion. So, some credit to the TB on this, but mainly the credit belongs to us, the great unwashed.

I stand corrected. What I didn't know was that the Trust Board implemented the decision of the members somewhat under protest : I don't remember seeing that info before. Hm.

So, the elected Trust representatives who, presumably, were in possession of the facts yet bound by confidentiality, didn't judge it to be such a debilitating 'rock on City's back'. The overriding result, in effect, is ill-informed mob rule, which can't be healthy in any organisation.

Before anyone suggests otherwise, I'm fully supportive of the new manager, just not comfortable with the manner of the departure of the previous incumbent, particularly the part the Trust played in it.

To be honest, we've been through this over and over and over again until the cows come home. Tisdale's happy cos he's sure to be earning much more at MKD and has got his rolling contract
and I would suggest the majority of fans are either happy or don't care. The termination of Tis' (rolling) contract was all above board and done democratically. Can't we leave this topic soon : it really is getting very boring.

Couldn't agree more!
it's all gone and in the past. Tisdale got what he wanted but at a different club. He'll have a damn sight harder job there than he had at City. it's time we let it go. We have a season opener 2 days away, lets focus on that, the new manager and squad.

As a member of the Trust, raising a valid point about Trust process and procedure on a Trust-related thread, I'm interested to know what 'credit' is due to the membership and for what ? Haven't even mentioned the tedious roller or its owner.

I wouldn't be so impolite as to claim your posts are boring, Twaddledee and Twaddledumb, but perhaps you'd better enjoy 'contributing' to the many other threads on this site ! :p

Can we look forward to your manifesto then?
I cant see what my manifesto has got to do with it. I just think that after such a lengthy period as trust representatives, the two that are standing down should withdraw and not apply for the position again. To me, its just not healthy for the existing people to continue. This is always assuming two people want to apply of course.

Loads of people are hoping you will apply.

"The manner of Tisdale's departure" has been covered over and over again. The fact that you aren't "comfortable" with it will have little impact on ECFC world. My comment was a general comment, not aimed at you, but if you want to take it that way - that's fine. Don't lose your marbles, Elgin.

Is no one interested in the upcoming Trust elections and AGM? This thread seems to have died and with things so good on the field under Matt”s leadership, isn’t it about time people put themselves forward for election, so that we can ensure things are being done as well off the field? I know it’s a heavy commitment of time and I wish I could do it, but if some of us don’t we can’t complain about the way the club is run by Taggy”s little gang.
