I doubt people have read the thumbs up and thumbs down criteria you gave them (even though you put this in capitals!). Traditionally you thumb up or down based on the comment. Very much doubt 17 people (currently) have no confidence in the board at least to the extent that they want them gone which is what a no confidence vote traditionally means (unless you are Boris Johnson).

I would be terrified if the current board left because I don't see anyone wanting or capable of stepping in.

Re Kingsmeadow I don't know the specific options for the board, but from everything I have heard AFCW could have broken the lease (which was relatively short anyway) with much lower levels of compensation than what they gave us. Also anecdotally it seems Chelsea didn't want us there but I have no way of knowing whether we could have stayed at peppercorn rent until a new ground was found (decades maybe) while still having the money AFCW gave us. I have no idea what AFCW and Chelsea would have done had we stood our ground and said it's down to you to make us homeless and take the bad publicity but very high poker stakes to have done that.

Once it became clear Casuals wanted us out I don't know what other ground options we had and whenever an alternative is mentioned (even if available which we don't know) there are plenty of people who don't like the alternative. It seems inconceivable to me that the board wouldn't have picked the best option available from a set of poor options open to them.

It's been disappointing we've been given hope with potential ground developments only to find they are non starters but equally did anyone seriously believe it was going to be easy to find a ground in Kingston that we had a stake in for £1m?

We're all upset at the position the club is in but we need to be realistic that from the minute we went bankrupt and ended up with Khosla we were potentially heading for this situation anyway and that there are no obvious people out there who could do a better job unless they were willing to pump a fortune into the club.
