I take your point John but I do think we need clarity here.

There have been people who were willing to invest into Ks in various ways - through sponsorship, for example - and the previous board (which is not entirely different from the current board) have been dreadful at managing those relationships, attracting investment in general, and attracting crowds which brings in gate money.

If that complacency has been fuelled in any way by a reliance on dipping into the Wombles money for the playing budget then it will affect people's view of things going forward.

I thought Yioryos largely acquitted himself well yesterday and said many of the right things but I'm unconvinced his answer to my specific question - about what % of the 'lost' Wombles money has been spent on the playing budget - are correct.

I don't think it's worth going over all the board's old mistakes in terms of the football side of things, and *to a certain extent* Lovelace and other failed ground ventures at this point in time, but we need clarity on this. I strongly feel that morally that was not the board's money to spend on football-related ventures, and if that was the case then they should have been clear about it.
