The re-arranged CPO EGM will take place this Monday 23rd July.
A lot has happened since last October’s failure by the club to buy back the lease from Chelsea Pitch Owners. At the time, we at the CSG e-mailed our members to gauge the feeling amongst them in terms of whether they felt, as the committee did, that the club needed to provide more information before we could endorse such a buy back. The feedback we received was unequivocal – all but a couple agreed that a no vote was in order at that time – but that “no”, did not mean never.
Things have now moved on and the CPO has seen changes at board level and the club has been a little more forthcoming in terms of communication, but I think it is fair to say that without a new potential site identified, many of us still feel uneasy regarding an unconditional surrender of our shares.
Since the October No vote, we have seen various other “factions” (for want of a better word) emerge – some publicly and some anonymous, who have put their opinions, beliefs and “facts” into the public domain. The issues have also been debated passionately on the club’s official chat site, on Twitter and on a number of other forums – there is certainly a lot of opinion out there now – how much of it is “fact” we cannot guess.
We have trawled the internet and gathered links to the main protagonists involved, which we hope will help you all in your own decisions on how to vote in the various resolutions – or at least perhaps will demonstrate the various outlooks currently out there.
If you come across any other links to articles/blogs/forums that you would like to see added to this list – please feel free to leave as a comment and we will add it asap.
