  1. I hear your point Scotty but the club do make it very difficult to "support" them. Myself and the boy bought season tickets on the day they were released and a strip was ordered for him the day they were for sale on pre-order. But to have paid fo rthis two months ago (maybe more) and £4.95 P&P then for us not to have them before they go on general sale just seems bonkers. I'm not looking for a pat on th eback for putting finds in - it's what we all want to do to help the club. But time after time, they seem to fall short in the little things and ultimately I think people then feel that their support is at best taken for granted or at worst not even worthy of getting a strip sent out before it goes on general release. Yes staff numbers are short, yes a global pandemic but how many times on the forum have similar threads appeared. If it wasn't a football club and heart strings were involved, you'd simply not accept the crap service IMHO. We were told you might get your strip on Saturday - not sparkling levels of customer service - how do we get more bums on seats if that is what we aspire to off the pitch? On a separate note, hope everyone on here healthy - I've not been on at all as I've been running the business myself due to the virus so sick of looking at screens....
  2. Wow, that’s a shocker. What a striker. Best wishes to a speedy and full recovery.
  3. Decent performance so far. First 10 minutes a bit shaky but finished strongly. And cries of ooh to......😂
  4. Great result. Officials really sh1te but does that come as a surprise anymore? We do seem to have an awful lot of decisions going against us without wishing to sound like old firm whatabouttery..... And possibly the coldest I've been at the stadium and that's saying something. Easter Road here we come.
  5. Wow. Still waiting on the post match appearing on social meeja. Poor, poor result and everyone at the game agreed Arbroath completely outplayed us. Don’t care if they’re part time or full time, it’s just not acceptable. Important three weeks coming.
  6. Aye, that was weird. He came on as 44 and then changed?
  7. Trafford was immense. For me, even if Jordan won the ball, where is the second man dropping in or showing for a knock down? Would Toddy have to plough the same furrows? I’m old fashioned, and not that old - ffs get some width and get some crosses in. Had Keats converted from Walsh and made it 1-1..... and if yer maw had baws etc. But yeah, poor today. Utd ain’t THAT good though. If Dundee do the biz next week, the brown stuff gets real again.
  8. All been said. We simply are not able to play out a game so we either need to train in that area of weakness or stop trying surely? To carry on doing the same thing without the appropriate game plan is absolute feckin madness.
  9. Tell you what, if I was a potential investor (read donor) and took time out of my busy life either running a medium to large sized business (which is what you need to be doing to inject the levels of capital the club need, let's face it) I'd think twice after seeing some of the posts and disdain that "we" seem to have for the board, their motives for doing what needs to be done, the way they run the club etc. The cynicism in quite staggering - and I can do cynicism - but some seem to chip away at everything without making any suggestion as to what they would perhaps suggest. We could maybe do with damping things down for a bit and thinking how we could perhaps look to pro-actively assist in our clubs future. Or is schadenfreude the way forward when we go part-time, run out of money, sell th eground and we can sit back and say "See, told you so", fiddling whilst Rome burns. Jaysus.....
  10. I've heard the unfortunate news that Hugh passed away, I believe yesterday. Just heard this morning. Remember him at Telford Street, certainly larger than life. Condolences to his family.
  11. Not good, lost in a poor manner. Yes Jamie had a difficult one but the pass played to him was right in the middle of his feet. Do they not know their strong sides ffs? One poor game had to come, dust off move on. Aye, forgotten how McCall plays the clock....not that Fox needs any encouragement! Just not at the races, let’s clear up the back room nonsense and hopefully the team are still here to get back to winning ways....
  12. regrettably, I have to agree. I have been to the boardroom with clients on a few different occasions and each time I have "met" Mr Rae, it is as if it is the first time - very little p1sses me off more to be honest. Mine is not a big business but I am a supporter and do waht I can. I'm not asking for a man hug and a high five but to remember at least something of those you meet in your own boardroom must be a pre-requisite. Two clients of whom I speak would be MORE than capable of sponsoring the club to a reasonable degree but little attempt was made to engage with them either so I must side with Scotty. Nothing personal against the chap but lessons to be learned by the incoming I think - you have no idea who is able to come up with something that could help the club. And I include, I'm afraid, our CEO in this also - completely blanked in the boardroom.......
  13. For clarity I meant anyone in general, not specific to these two individuals - apologies. However, question remains where is the source? It would be an idea for the board, IMHO, to have a mix of those with cash deposits but also those who can bring some business acumen or connections or indeed any skill that the club currently does not have behind the scenes. This may be naive, but....
  14. I'd love to know what source has decreed that Messrs Fyffe & Dalgarno are ready for the off - is this backed up by fact or just from the rumour mill? Anybody who puts money in to the club must know that they are not getting it out so whilst I am not saying we should graciously accept, perhaps there should be less vitriol around who we are willing to accept money from? Yes, we all have the best interests at heart and would hope that any new "donor" (not investor as that suggests a ROI at the end) has the long term future of the club as their goal but the brutal facts are we need money, we need stability and we need a board who have the cojones to make the hard decisions NOW to balance the books, re-engage with the wider community - importantly Fan AND Business - and ensure that we retain FT football and at least top 3 in the league with an occasional spell in the SPL to boost coffers from time to time? Can't be that difficult...... But please, anyone, don't come in with a blaze of glory on here with suggestions of how to shape things going forward and then disappear without a trace. We need staying power and sleeves rolled up.
  15. Relief. I’d heard that he didn’t have one. Would have been naive....
