I mean, come on - what harm can it do?
The BFC board now has well meaning fans putting in a lot of effort in all the key positions. Loans have been rolled forward, more money is being made available for the team next year. I personally have a warm, fuzzy feeling about next season.

Admission is via the Directors's side-gate

A few snippets are:
The company's loss for the year after taxation amounted to £3,886,695
Net loss from transfer fees were £230,947
As a side issue what was the financial cost when rebus threw a wobbly and resigned prior to that election? Or wasn't there one?

Its free to join as an origanisation and personally. With the funds being paid frequently to your personally chosen...
I'm taking early retirement (at age 57) at the end of May. I may look for another job later in the year but am fortunate enough to have a reasonable pension (thanks, taxpayers!) so am thinking of doing something part-time on a voluntary basis. I'd prefer this to be local, and something I'm...

Bees United members and other supporters, including many people on the GPG, have been asking about Bees United’s policies and objectives over the next few years, now the Supporters’ Trust has completed the formalities of its partnership with Matthew Benham.
The partnership will see the long-time...
Does the GPG and BU mix together? It really should do but it seems that BU hierachy posts on here do more harm than good? I don't get why it goes so badly wrong but it seems an own goal scoring excercise.

Bees United members should, by now, have received through the post an eight-page newsletter and an announcement of Bees United's £1 million appeal.

We knew we had fewer email addresses than members. But the 'bounce-backs' soon showed that many of those we had were no good. In all we think we have got about 600 'good' email addresses, which is little...
A new thread needed, perhaps.
Congratulations to all concerned for finalising the Matthew Benham deal.
It must have been very hard work, and taken a lot of diplomacy, to sort it all out!

"Analysing the supporter-ownership model, as we’ve been doing over the past few days, is fine, but it’s no substitute for getting stuck in and looking at the experience of the challenges first hand, as we look at today. Brian Burgess has been involved with Brentford’s Supporters’ Trust from the...
Maybe this is for a new thread, but did the club and BU try other parties re the naming rights for the Braemar Road roof?
If BU are only paying for the cost of the signeage, then, effectively, BFC are not getting anything for that site at all.
Call me an optimist, but , surely, the value of that...

Bees United volunteers will be handing out leaflets at the Charlton game on 28 December.
