Q - Who pays the loan players' wages?
GK - Mike isn't part of my plans. I don't think he's comfortable with the way we want to play. Dean came in, I expect players to train how they would play. Greg Fleming came in and wasn't at the level we wanted him to be but he got there in six weeks. When Greg had a wobble we felt it was unfair to have Lewis Brass on the bench. We thought we could get Dean up to speed in a few weeks but that hasn't happened and I take full responsibility for that. We've now got Jordan Pickford in and at th
is moment in time I think that is working well.
Q - What is the situation with Mike Edwards and Dean Bouzanis?
GK - I don't know - he's had a difficult time and he probably knows he won't play again. I know his son is at Huddersfield so if he helps out then good luck to him but I'm not aware of any payment.
Q - has Cadamarteri received payment for his work with Leeds and Huddersfield?
Q - Do you think people need to hear from you more?
AJ - We have a community trust who is on the go every day trying to get people involved in the club.
AJ & JN - I haven't heard anything. Chris Lumsdon - Andy Hall has been in touch. AJ - We would love to take up that offer.
Q - Chris Lumsdon and Grant Holt have offered to help out, has any contact been made?
AJ - It has been negotiated and is finalised.
Q - Is Greg Abbott's contract being honored in full?
AJ - Myself, John and the bank.
Q - Who are the major creditors?
Q - Does Fred Story have any say in the club? AJ - No.
JN - When we get promoted into the Championship we will need a Championship stadium. If we got promoted we would get £4 million extra income however that would all be needed for players' wages for us to compete in the Championship.
JN - Blue Yonder didn't come out of the blue - we ran into some issues after we announced it and we have now had to look at other options. We have signed a confidentiality agreement so it is difficult so inform fans until we have anything concrete.
AJ - We were led along by the council for two years but I think the plans for the town took over. As soon as we get something concrete we will let fans know.
Q - What is happening with Project Blue Yonder?
SP - I'm proud of what we do with disabled supporters. I'm quite disappointed to hear that you feel there is a problem. In terms of cups of tea - we have to make sure we treat everybody the same.
SP - It comes back to the fact that we need a new ground. We also introduced a new area in the paddock quite recently.
Steven Pattison - I make sure I visit the disabled area myself every match. I always ask if there are any problems. I was told there was a problem with the disabled toilets which has since been sorted out.
Q - Regarding the disability services. The place you've put the disabled seats is a disgrace. There is nothing to welcome us, some clubs give us cups of tea or have someone to welcome us.
JN - I'm proud to be able to support the club and the lower leagues at the top level.
Q - To John, how does your involvement with the Football League affect your duties with Carlisle United?
NS - the main thing that comes to mind is the volunteering work that went on over the summer. One of those volunteers has worked throughout the season and Andrew has kindly offered him a season ticket next year.
Q - What initiatives have you put to the board on behalf of fans?
NS - Not a lot at the moment, it isn't an area we've got round to. We do feel that is a big area to work on.
Q - what are you doing to interest young members?
NS - We are trying to raise our membership numbers and do our best for the club.
Q - what are the priorities of the Trust?
JN - If a potential investor wants to buy the whole
club they would have to persuade the Trust to sell them their shares.
JN - we've got to make sure on behalf of the fans that we look after the club.
JN - when people come in, they want to buy the whole club and all of the shares.
JN - Bournemouth got a very rich Russian investor who paid off the debt and also bought out the trust. The Trust own 25.2% of our club so they can say yes or no to potential investors.
AJ - there are people who will come in and pay the debts. A problem we have is the catchment area.
Q - The debt was stated at £1.1 million which doesn't seem massive for a football club. If potential investors walk away because of that how do other clubs like Bournemouth manage to get investors?
Norman Steele - We see ourselves as a help. As much as we enjoy working with the current directors we would be open to working with a new investors.
Q - I'm not a member of the Trust, if we're looking for investment do the Trust see themselves as a help or a hindrance
JN - crowds across the league are decreasing but if you look at Walsall their average crowd has gone up this season. I think that just shows that people want to see exciting football and a team that is trying to get into the playoffs.
AJ - we need to have crowds of 4,400 to break even this season and we've gone below that so we need the fans to stick with us.
JN is now explaining more of the financial fair play rules.
JN - With these rules in place there should be no way clubs can get into financial difficulty. Teams that do go over that 60% limit are embargoed and they aren't allowed to get any players in.
JN - If we get further in the cup than we anticipate we can only use 60% of that income.
John Nixon - No, there are no financial penalties. We are allowed to spend 60% of our income on wages. If anyone puts money into the club that cannot be counted as income.
Q - With the new Financial rules - is there a penalty if we don't meet those requirements?
