If your point is the failure of CRE8 and CRE8 (UK), then maybe you should also consider that both Branson and Sugar had failures before they achieved success.
Whilst not defending any losses that individuals may have been subject to, you should judge him on what he does and is doing for our club.

This appointment makes complete sense as a financial background usually means a conservative attitude, which hopefully will ensure we break even soon.
Lee has so far done everything I would do myself if I had my hard earned invested in STFC.
We have a good foundation for our future and success in the coming years are quite possible.
I say good luck to Steve Anderson. Do look after the club and staff.

We need a club manager to sort out the day to day running of the club. We then don't need another manager to run the team. He should be called 'team manager' or coach. These 2 guys have separate jobs, but must be able to work with each other.

I was simply stating they had worked together previously at Cre8. For those that are not familiar with Cre8 then this paints a brief picture of how he/they have gone about their business previously.

Lee Power, the director of Cre8 (UK), the failing football publications firm whose lucrative contracts with Premier League clubs were conferred to a new company, Cre8 (Publishing), before beginning insolvency proceedings, seems to have a bit of history.

A former Norwich City striker, Power has been a director of 19 companies. He was chairman at Cambridge United and Rushden & Diamonds, and both are still trading. One company is a lettings firm, November Properties, but that lies dormant. Two, O Publishing and Cre8 (Publishing), are new and were set up within six weeks of each other last year, both with football club publishing contracts similar to or inherited from those at Cre8 (UK).

Power resigned as a director of Cre8 (Publishing) in February after six months on the board there, although curiously staff claim he has never been a director of the firm. Of the rest of his former businesses, 13 are either in insolvency proceedings or have been dissolved

Hardly a Sugar or Branson is it??? Still best give a chance to prove himself I guess, only one more piece of the jigsaw to sort now then.

I get it.....you don't like Power and his involvement and will try your best to ensure he doesn't succeed. . All your subsequent postings will be read with that in mind together with the "spin" you put on them and your jaundiced and predjudiced view.

In the last war it was cheap words that may have put the country at risk, your choice of historic matters whose "facts" are slanted towards your own views are rather like picking one bad grape from a bunch of plenty and then realising that you have actually picked out the wrong one.

It depends on where your facts come from whether it is populist or really factual or how it is painted. In fact I know many directors who have been listed as having literally hundreds of companies who are totally "sound" yet their careers will have involved actively in winding up, dissolving or pulling away from businesses that are no longer needed or successful... yet pointing that out in your piece to accentuate your thoughts bounds on triviality itself to endorse your "points".

May I suggest for the new year you do all your research properly and don't just read the headlines.... your spin only works on those that are gullible and can't be bothered to do the research necessary to identify the real facts.

I pointed that detail out months ago on here when the same old red herrings as you raise now started to surface. Look that up you may learn something. (but you may not like or want to believe it )

Do your on research Clueso. I have both criticised and praised Power in the past on matters on and off the pitch. And I will continue to do either based on what I feel, as this is an opinions board. Thanks for the education but I am well aware about how a company folds, but not via my own experience. My interest is in STFC being owned and operated ethically and I have not parted spin on any of it, simply posted an article I have read and mentioned they worked together. That article does not bring any spin either. What element is not factual I am unclear of also. So perhaps you do your research sunshine.

Although any praise 2012, must have been some time ago now as I don't remember reading anything you have posted recently that does not come across as a thinly veiled swipe at our new owner.
.
You're obviously weary, nothing wrong with that, I think most of us as town fans are naturally so, but your posts nearly always seem to hint at something unsavory and maybe that is why a few people have jumped on your back today. Also, to be fair, the whole cre8 thing is very old news on this forum now and I don't understand why you felt the need to bring it to this article? We needed a GM to handle the day to day running of the club, Mr Power has gone out and quickly resolved it. The fact that he knows the guy and has previously worked with him is probably better for us than if he had not.

I stand by what I said, what you repeated was a populist written headline. Scratch a little bit beneath the surface and you will find what the journos wrote is not quite as you and they imagine it and more to do with finding a headline. Regurgitating articles that you read without research and proper due diligence can often lead to misunderstandings shared amongst those that want to believe it becomes "fact".... whether that is correct or not.

Given the amount of forensic investigation some like to do on those that operate STFC, I rather suspect that you would probably have to find someone as anonymous as an Eskimo who previously only spent his life hunting seals by a blow hole to find a suitable candidate and who has been isolated from the world of the web and so you can find nothing written about them. Even so that would still be reason for some to question their integrity, where have they been? ..why are they secretive?..what is their agenda?

What you dream about is perfection.... trust me, that will never ever happen....there will always be something that irritates a section of fans for one reason or another, whether on the field or off it that some will find issue with somewhere in owners history on the web.....the many years of internet activity about STFC prove just that.

Time to stand back from all that, support the club, share the love and that which you dream of a succesful club might just come to pass.

Wonder what Father Christmas is doing now? perhaps he could be the ideal owner for us after all he is a good chap, isn't he? at least from what I have seen written and others word of mouth...wait........

This is brilliant, beats any soap on TV, keep it up people. As for STFC2012 being negative??? I may be in the minority but I share his concerns.
Based on what ? oft repeated articles that are not totally factually correct, but used as a stirring rod...yawn !!!

I stand by what I said, what you repeated was a populist written headline. Scratch a little bit beneath the surface and you will find what the journos wrote is not quite as you and they imagine it and more to do with finding a headline. Regurgitating articles that you read without research and proper due diligence can often lead to misunderstandings shared amongst those that want to believe it becomes "fact".... whether that is correct or not.

Given the amount of forensic investigation some like to do on those that operate STFC, I rather suspect that you would probably have to find someone as anonymous as an Eskimo who previously only spent his life hunting seals by a blow hole to find a suitable candidate and who has been isolated from the world of the web and so you can find nothing written about them. Even so that would still be reason for some to question their integrity, where have they been? ..why are they secretive?..what is their agenda?

What you dream about is perfection.... trust me, that will never ever happen....there will always be something that irritates a section of fans for one reason or another, whether on the field or off it that some will find issue with somewhere in owners history on the web.....the many years of internet activity about STFC prove just that.

Time to stand back from all that, support the club, share the love and that which you dream of a succesful club might just come to pass.

Wonder what Father Christmas is doing now? perhaps he could be the ideal owner for us after all he is a good chap, isn't he? at least from what I have seen written and others word of mouth...wait........

.......a moment ... the rumour has started..........doe

sn't he "sniff" an awful lot of sherry ?
Your big words mean nothing on here Cleuso.

Try writing to Santa and asking for a dick between your legs, rather than demeaning all the other posters on here!!
