Mr McNallys "Sleight of hand"
1 year 1 month ago #95173
Ladies and Gentlemen.
I have had a day or two to reflect on the tumultuous events of the past few days and I would like to make a personal observation.
I noticed that over the past few weeks Mr McNally posted on the Trust website concerning the use of monies raised by the Supporters Trust and this elicited 132 replies and he continued to poise the same question when suddenly out of the blue the news on Friday broke.
In my opinion this was a deliberate ruse to deflect the NVFC supporters attention from the real issues which raised their head with such force on Friday.
Mr McNally is Jim's PR man and the latest subject of the Supporters Club funding is another ruse to deflect Supporters attentions until "something else" happens.
Certainly challenge everything that you disagree with, but periodically take a step back and check what else is going on concerning the club and its "issues"

Pulling this post out of a thread below as it seems more appropriate to have it with yours and its currently just disappearing in the quicksand of posts involving Colin.
This is not about the football club - somewhere in all this mess there is the potential for making money. That is what it is about. Whether people speculate about links to Stephen Vaughan and money laundering, getting land cheap and developing it, getting ones hands on more grants for yet another stadium and therefore more land etc or whether it's all for the love of a football club - what are the current tactics designed to achieve?
To suddenly attack the Trust (one of the few entities to actually give the club sponsorship, buy hospitality and help to oil the wheels of running the club) suggests it is a threat. But why?
If there is anything in the 'Sport England' possibility of preserving the current ground, or getting alternative land for development to replace it, then to have the backing of a body supported, ultimately, by government policy, would seem an advantage? It has access to all sorts of help, advice and influence.
To try to discredit it in order to hush things up? No. All the 'muck' becomes public from other sources - NPL, creditors, etc etc.
To reduce the fans groups to one? No. The OSC died a while ago.
To destroy the Trust in order, eventually, to channel its money into the club or the owner? I don't know how much the Trust has but my guess from other peoples comments is above £20k? Possibly.
The debts can't be hidden, it's impossible, but are there other more sinister things in there as well? Possibly.
Is Jim really so totally out of touch that it borders on losing touch with reality? Wasn't Hitler planning wonderful counter attacks even as they closed in on his bunker? Under the heading 'highly unlikely' I think.
Has Jim just been a front man all along and now we are seeing the puppeteer who works the puppet? Certainly possible. But still takes us back to the questions above.
They need a fight with someone, anyone or specifically the Trust, to deflect interest elsewhere?
Given Jim's admitted friendship with Vaughan and all the financial goings on etc it would not be surprising if the local Constabulary were keeping an eye on things - but that is not going to be influenced by a fight with the Trust and what is put on this forum.
So, any theories out there? Jim and McNally are not daft so the ideas will need to be based on more than the cosmetic propaganda put on this forum etc. Are they really out to destroy the trust or are they merely using what is around in order to buy time? If so - for what?
