Am I banging my head against a brick wall here? The point is quite simple...If EW has 51% of the shares then he still in control of the club..and as such he has the final say on whether there is a new share issue or not - irrespective of the consequences.

There is another point that concerns me and that is the protracted time it has now taken to determin exactly what is owed to EW in the form of loans to the club and what is not. As far as I am aware, the accounts deposited at companies house were in the shortened form which gives a balance sheet and a summary P & L. None of these accounts to my knowledge have been qualified (that is, the auditors have not been entirely happy with the financial statements). Even with the shortened form of accounts, they need to see a fully reconcilied list of Directors Loans.

Given (I believe) that the last accounts deposited are for the year ending summer 2008, then the only issue should be the movement on loans for the year to 2009 when EW agreed to flog his shares. So what is the problem? Have the previous accounts been incorrect and if so why have they been signed off? Has there been a second (illegal) set of books? Any ideas, anyone?

I think the main problem with the accounts, is that nobody could find a pen to write in the books.

That is not the case under company law. Boards of Directors have the power to issue new share issues, it is not EW's decision. The only case in which Board of Directors are not allowed issue new share would be if the sole purpose was to undermine a voting majority. So long as the new share issue was to raise capital (which is clearly needed), it would be 'proper' and so EW cannot block it.

As outlined earlier and in previous threads, Ilyas is leading a full and proper investigation of the Club's financial affairs. Given the ad hoc nature these affairs in the past, this has clearly taken some time to complete. Unless you think that Ilyas has no incentive to find out the truth, there is no issue here other than for us to trust Ilyas' judgement when the facts become clearer. Because of the nature of what may be uncovered, not all the information may be put in the public domain, so once again, the issue to trust Ilyas with this.

OOps! My comment in red:
Boards certainly do have the power to issue new shares - that is one of the reasons they're there. But who elects the Directors? Last time I looked it was the shareholders and as there is technically still one majority shareholder then that means he has the clout. However there are certain minority shareholder rights which togeather with the Directors duties in protecting the interests of the company(club) suggest that EW would not take any action to undermine this. But after the events of the last few years, nothing would surprise me any more in what could happen.
As outlined earlier and in previous threads, Ilyas is leading a full and proper investigation of the Club's financial affairs. Given the ad hoc nature these affairs in the past, this has clearly taken some time to complete.

I certainly have every confidence in Ilyas sorting this mess out. But what surprises me is this - if the books are as bad as is now suggested by the time scale of the investigation and audit, how the hell were they deposited at Companies House?

Re: Coley & Jimmy Demand Contract Resolution

I guess, having read so many posts in relation to the D'oN/ EW purchase and transfer of shares situation, that I too, having heard Ilyas Khan's proclamations on the subject, tend to think that, as an astute, extremely experienced, and mega-successful individual were matters fiscal are concerned, that he and those working for him will , sooner rather than later reveal the truth relating to this worriesome thorn in the side of the Club's Financial Management.
I also guess that this thread, which long since ignored it's original purpose of deploring the handling of the task of ensuring the services of John Coleman and Jimmy Bell by treating them like decent human beings, recognising their lasting value to the Club and negotiating relevant Contracts for the pair of them, will continue to examine Company Law etc ad infinatum until that happy day when all will be made clear by Ilyas Khan.
So Gentlemen, do carry it on, because I for one find your deliberations both elucidating and fascinating, never once thinking that, as a simple Fan of our Great Club,I would be treated to such a display of Fiscal Fireworks !.
Meantime, I do hope that D o'N will, in a splurge of his well-circulated spirit of transparency, tell us all that although it might have taken from April until now to finalise, type and sign the contracts for John and Jimmy, that these have become a reality rather than a meaningless utterance to local News-hounds !.

QUO VADIS STANLEY ?.

So let's get this right, you have every confidence in Ilyas, despite the fact that you think what he's doing is "morally wrong".

...and you're showing that confidence by...not turning up for home matches, refusing to buy a season ticket or merchandise and urging others to do the same.

I'd hate to see how you react to somebody you don't have confidence in!

Re: Coley & Jimmy Demand Contract Resolution

I think we are all worried about the John and Jimmy show because of what the Telegraph reported Jmmy had said! However, later reports show, in the same newspaper, show that John is quite happy to continue working without a contract, bcause that is what he has done for the last 11 years. However, if and when one finally becomes available, he will sign on the dotted line, as will Jimmy. As UKCowboy states in another thread Faux Pas!!!

I would take it as a positive that JC is already making moves for players to shape the squad for next season
