Just seems to me now that he is doing the least possible with the new ground just to tick a covernance box and develop RH. He has no long term self sufficient long term strategy for the club, just more money for him and SBC, feel like he has played us all

If he'd taken over the club a couple of years ago, then maybe. But he's owned the club for decades

A question for those of you who regularly claim "Its all one mans fault".

If you were given £5m and could turn the clock back to 1998 when if I remember right we finished about 18th in L2 (4th tier) what would you do different ?

Don't forget you have to pay off the £4m debt run up by the previous owners as the banks are about to close RH. You have to deal with Sainsbury's because they have first dibs on RH. Plus you have to deal with SBC, for the previous 15 years the made no secrete of not wanting football in our town. They would rather the club went to Basildon than allow a new stadium or the redevelopment of RH.

We all love RH so would you stay, go to Bas, build a new stadium or back to the Kursal etc......

But this will impact on the ability to earn income too? Thought we were supposed to targeting corporate and social events, you're not going to do that with more housing and nowhere to stay!
I mean yes. But you thought Ron actually cared about the club after he’s cashed out?

Yes. But fans don’t see it. He is and was a property developer.
