Well Accrington is surrounded by a lot of other football clubs - so, I presume, they are probably supporters of other clubs (cue comments about not wanting supporters of other clubs owning yours)

Was Bob Lord an Accy supporter from a surrounding club?

Re : Mr Doheochai.

Whilst I am sure that MFC and its members wish to make some form of "positive" contribution to a football club, it's plainly and blaitantly obvious that the fans and dare I say it the officials of this wonderfull club do not want to indulge in /or entertain the intentions of your consortium.

The whole concept of the MFC scenario is plainly and simply "FANTASY FOOTBALL"

This club is not the figment of some idealistic scenario.The Chairman,board,management,players,staff and fans have worked hard,TOGETHER, to put this club back into the national spotlight.

UNLESS it is plainly indicated by the powers that control this fantastic club, I Feel ,the general concensus of fans of this club do not wish to indulge in this "Fantasy Football Experiment"

I actually spoke to 2 of these MFC people and I said I was still gathering info and was still undecided but that statement Haggis has swayed me into the go away MFC we only want Stanley fans running our club.

That is quite possible - We do know that as late as this week another club has approached MFC for discussions and a meeting was held with club officials and the club manager (this now makes eight clubs that MFC are currently in negotiations with).

Have to disagree with you here. I am not in the least interested in 'fantasy football'. I want to be involved, as a football fan, with running a club - something fans should be doing in every club in the country.

Acknowledged and absolutely agree. Everyone involved with the club have made a magnificant effort to get the club to its current position (remember I said earlier that I wasn't in favour of MFC buying Stanley - and this is the reason - MFC should not (and as far as I know isn't) be looking to buy a club that has been well run and has fans actively supporting the board.

By the way a number of MFC members are planning to go to a Stanley game in the next couple of weeks - please give them a warm welcome - afterall they are giving a little boost to the crowd numbers and that can't be bad.

This is where the fundamental difference with us folk lies, sir.
Fans should stay fans.
We should spectate, not dictate.
Football clubs have boards of directors for a reason - THEY KNOW WHAT THEY'RE DOING!
Fans don't.

Really have to disagree with you here - how many clubs have been f*cked-up by their chairmen/boards? In all honesty there is absolutely no reason why fans couldn't do as well - if not better - than most of them. You should have more confidence in the ability of ordinary fans to know what is best for a football club.

Specifically in relation to MFC - unlike current owners - MFC, because of its rules, cannot put a club into debt or sign contract for which money hasn't be secured. Even with Man Utd the Glaziers put the club in hock to the tune of £400million to fund their takeover.

In terms of decision making - current owners have their own agenda which don't always mean they operate in the best interests of the club. MFC members cannot make any financial gain from their membership so decisions would be made in the best interests of the club - not the best interests of the owner.

Have absolutely no influence there - MFC are in negotiations with eight clubs (Think it is unlikely - but you never know Stanley could be one of them - confidentiality is a b*tch) - and the takeover team will pick the one with the most potential (if a deal can be done).

Stanley - the Club that wouldn't Die

(Unless a set of muppets with £35 to waste get hold of it, get bored & move on to another daft web based try to get rich quick scheme. Have you not got real clubs to invest your £35 into, the ones you've always followed)

Just for clarification - the members of MFC cannot make any financial gain from the purchase of the club (it's in the rules of MFC). If the club is sold any funds will be distributed to charity (however, in all likelihood if/when MFC withdraws from club ownership - the club could well be sold to a supporters trust for a nominal fee).
