There's a spate of Clubs whose fans are seeking to gain control of their Clubs - the most recent of which is Newport County, who raised the money to buy their club, which they did yesterday. Bath City fans are also seeking to raise enough to buy out the current management. I thought there ought to be a dedicated thread for this 'trend'(?) for occasional posts on the topic.

Looks like Leeds are going to be fan owned shortly, very big potential, a club of that size being successful as a fan owned club and the potential for them to raise revenue through a Trust of similar could be a game changer within the upper echelons of football, will watch with interest......

Not sure a club the size of Leeds will prosper as a fan owned club, but we'll see. How long until there are factions within the trust, infighting, name calling, etc - it'll be like The Life of Brian - splitters!
