Been to the summit of kilimanjaro. I can confirm it is very very cold. -15.

Ice cubes do have a chance in Africa.



Haha! I've also been to Mt Kili so should have known better.

Is that a euphemism?

It was certainly an achievement. I totally underestimated it's difficulties. I had to negotiate to be allowed to do it because I had almost none of the required clothes or equipment. Took 6 days to walk up. It gets incredibly cold at night.

On the last day you walk up at mid night to get to the top for sun rise to avoid sun stroke and exhaustion. On the way up the last couple kilometres, I overheard an aussie bloke say to his mate; "jesus Christ. That guys doing it in a hoodie".

If you want a challenge and to really achieve a different physical challenge. Do kilimanjaro.

It should be next year pre season training.

Orange ball obviously.

That would be some serious altitude training. I had a kick about in Nairobi, at 1800 metres and it nearly killed me.

I agree Opus but if you gave Evans a option to either have a few days away in Malta , play on worse pitches than back home , have worse training facilities than on your doorstep and get more of a stern test against the likes of Alfreton or have for an example , £200,000 extra to get a quality striker that could go a long way in obtaining promotion . I'm sure he would choose the latter
I agree , it's a great trip out for the players and fans but if the Radfords have a huge chunk of money to waste then fair enough , as long as we don't come up short on their budget for one of Steves main targets


The pitch is far from worse than back home. It's the training pitches of the Maltese FA where Rooney and co will be based in September. Oh and if you're worried about JR having to knock the striker on the head because of the cost of the trip you should have seen the size of the boat he had the use of over here

Just out of interest, I keep seeing people say its 'JRs money - he can do what he wants with it'. Once JR has put his personal money into the club, it is a club asset and should be spent with suitable consideration.

Whilst it is JR ultimately putting his money in, I assume all invoices go to MTFC rather than JR?

If not, and JR is footing the bill, is there any restriction for the amount of money JR can put in to the club for non playing purposes or does a trip to Malta come out of MTFC budget for the season?

Can JR just choose to pump money in (in the form of loans and/or sponsorship) any time he wants?
The Stags are for life, not just for cup finals. (or Liverpool).

Without looking into the accounts (unsure when they last where published) there's a few options he has, he can either put money in as a Loan and likely to be payable at some stage or tie up the money in the form of equity on the balance sheet i.e Share capital.
However this would depend on existing share holder structure and if those existing shareholders are willing to dilute their holding (providing they don't match the investment on a % basis, and suspect JR is the majority shareholder in any board meeting anyway with the decisive votes).
Im unsure if the commercial deals are scrutinised but another option is to pay over the odds for sponsorship, but this would be frowned upon by the one call insurance shareholders so unlikely.

But in answer to your question yes he can pump money in as and when he likes (various options available) be it his own money or seeking funding from an external party in the form of loans.

The real question is does JR have an exit plan in mind be it 5yrs / 10yrs, or simply get us to the championship and take it from their. As ive said before we have no idea how deep his pockets go, and if he's spending beyond his means it would become apparent.

My own view is we have someone in charge making a real go of it so lets enjoy it, because its about time we had some success within the football league.

We're not after Marquis. That's just a few lads in Malta having a laugh.

Wheeler or Godden is my guess. Possibly Hylton now that Collins is at Lu'un.

Thought id resurrect this thread as it had died down a bit over the last few days.

Whilst in my local sp'asda choosing a watermelon to put in my salad I happened to glance over to thevoranges and lemons section to see mr marquis sqeezing a lemon and lime before deciding on a grapefruit

That should get the thread going again
