CLUB STATEMENT : AGM & Annual Report : 23/11/17


Recommended Posts

I've deliberately avoided getting involved in this debate up till now, although I admit I have followed it, and quite enjoyed the 'banter', if that is what it is, between the two main protagonists, CB and CaleyD.  Not professing to know a fraction of what either of them apparently knows, I must say that my own opinion, garnered from all I've read to date, would lead me to side more with CB, whose comments in the above post, I think are spot on.  But, I've no doubt several posters may have different views.

Leaving aside the personal nature of some of the above I don't think it was a big secret to most fans that the club were budgeting and spending for mid table in the premiership? Relegation was always

I think everyone should just park at Tullochs headquarters on match ay and get a supporter bus arranged to ferry us to the games. Tulloch don' care about the club it's obvious and their refusal to den

Anyways, IBM, forgetting what these guys are on about 'cos we are not claiming to be as bright and intellectual as others,  I do appreciate  your birthday wishes and I will do the same to you when you get to 80 as well. So, please hang around a wee bittie longer..eh?  i.e.If we are both still on this mortal coil that is.:clapoverhead: 

Otherwise I may be lucky enough to spot you in the Spirit World. In which case we perhaps can enjoy a wee glass of ectoplasm together. :laugh:

:notworthy:  This thread is absolutely hilarious. here I am  wiping the tears of laughter from my eyes and neither of the two well read protagonists are willing to yield.How long can it go on?Anybody interested in setting up a bet?  Mr. Tenacious versus Mr. Steady-wins- the- Race. are up and at 'em for the last round in this exciting bout of verbal and verbiose fisticuffs. 

On the one hand there is chippy Charles with a vocabulary so  deep that  he feels the need to divest himself of most of it at every post and turn.  And  Caley D whose measured tones belie a  rapidly developing skill  in speech delivery which is designed to polish and enhance his excellent  past commentaries of the matches that  the color cameras had used to enlighten my days on a Saturday when ICT were playing on home soil.  Two dauntless  dragons of  dickering - with knobs on. :lol:

Alas, alack,  such days  have goneth with the wind and  yond Scarlet now hath a mean and hungry look. Such men are (not THAT) dangerous. Beware the Tides of March though 'cos they may sweep youse aff yer feet....especially when the much vaunted Chas is insisting on going down to the park in his Wellie bates to examine conditions prior to making a decision on whether to buy a new Caley scarf or not. 

 

O.K. Back to the Canucks game and the pipe and slippers. :wave:

Anyone know if there's any movement to finalising the stands / Tulloch deal?

At this rate Brexit will be resolved before this...

The South Stand favours a complete severance whereas the North Stand wishes to remain in the Customs Union and Single Market. Tullochs narrowly voted to hand the stands back but there is no consensus on what basis.

The last I was aware was a week or two ago when negotiations were still ongoing with, I believe, Highland Council and HIE also involved alongside the club and Tullochs. I am also led to believe that the club are now even more urgently seeking a conclusion to this than they were earlier when they had been led to hope that it would all be sorted out by the end of February.

It's worth observing that the first public notification that this transfer was being proposed came in a press release from Tulloch on December 9th 2016!

looks like our regular commentators have run out of steam. I am an even bit more stoic and just let things unfold.

A return to the Premiership , though, does seem a bit more remote this season.

However , having defined the problems then perhaps we can devise a way out but  probably this will be  a very :ponder:gradual uphill climb.

Looks as though it could be going into extra time!  Is the Tulloch deal finally going to squeeze through or will it be no deal?

No North Stand is better than a bad North Stand.

I imagine they took the view that it would be unhelpful to have issued accounts and called a meeting prior to completion of the   Stands deal which will have a very significant impact on the financial position.  

That deal is now in place and Ross Morrison has just been appointed as Vice Chair.  I can’t see any good reason why the AGM should not now go ahead. I would be surprised if there wasn’t an announcement in the next few days.

People keep saying that the clubs financial position will be so much better now, but nobody has explained how that is.  We will own buildings which have no value sitting on land which we will be paying rent for.  I don't get it.

It’s gives the club an asset on their balance sheet and removes a debt in accountancy terms the club is no longer bankrupt.

It stops the rental payments having to go through the accounts ever year (which didn’t get paid) which would be owed to tulocchs then requiring a letter of comfort to allow the accounts to be signed off.  Tullochs could have called in the debt which would have ended the club.

As part of the deal Tucllochs have also given up the naming rights to the stadium.  This can now open up a lot of income if the club manage to sell these naming rights to another company.

If you have a negative balance sheet then in that situation any business is bankrupt and no accountant would sign off the accounts.

so is it the case we have been trading whilst insolvent? is that not against the law?
