You’ll get no sense out of most people about anything to do with FK. Most people think that attacking him and starting another war is somehow a bold and warrior-like move. Because the best thing you can do when someone has your balls in a vice is start spitting at them rather than trying to just get them to leave you alone. Really clever, trying to go to war with him. Not remotely moronic.

Most of our wider problems are down to our own fans. Hounded out Herd before he could get the deal on the commercial land around the ground, which Kassam then did and stole from us. Hounded out Kassam even when as you rightly say, he was refusing to sell the club without the stadium as it was a bad move. Now far too many people advocate trying to somehow ruffle his feathers with various threats and petty wind up tactics, which is has led to him denying us more and more access to the ground and even pursue us with a WUP. You might never get a good deal out of him, but you can either have him actively dislike you and try to hurt you, or he can basically leave you alone and ignore you. The latter is infinitely more beneficial, but hey, let’s prove how much we love OUFC by sprinting into a war we can’t currently win.

We can't win a war against Kassam yet we've previously "hounded him out"?

Not very consistent in your argument there.

Looking a bit deeper they say:
  • We recognise £7m is a lot of money – equivalent to around £2,300 per current season ticket holder or £300 for every one of the 23,000 fans that attended the Wembley play off final.

And we take 30-40k to Wembley.....................

Well unless they get some very generous larger donations, or have a huge amount of exile fans then that is doomed to failure.

What's more worrying for them (reading the article) is that they seem to have embarked on the building of this new stadium and significantly underestimated the costs:

"We recognise that £13m is higher than we previously thought. Back in 2015, when we got permission to sell the Cherry Red Records Stadium, we thought we would need to raise a further £3m–7m."
"If we raise £10m of funding in total, that just about buys us the bare minimum we can build."

So they obviously *need* at least £3m of this crowdfunding to be able to complete what they've started to 'bare minimum'.

3 million quid is over £1000 from each ST holder. Oops.

They should build a ground somewhere cheaper than London, a new town perhaps?
