  1. Airdrieonians off season thread 2017

    Not so busy in reporting the game though, with a mere 18 lines dedicated to the biggest club in the area. They obviously have an agenda as well, I'd not trust any Record journo as far as I could throw them. The Kevin Thompson story is a case in point. Mark Pirie has run a story, with the sole purpose of undermining those in charge of the club, on a paper thin statement from Kevin Thompson. He should have run this by the club and got a confirmation or denial, but that wouldn't grab a headline. As another poster say's - they don't give a shit about us or the club - they care about selling their rag. Personally, I don't think he should have been allowed at a meeting for trust members.

    f**k off, we're the Airdrie Peoples Front.

    Was that an insult? Pretty thin skinned little thing aren't we? If you go back through my posts, I think you'll find I'm pretty clear on what I'm advocating.

    I know plenty of what you post on here, you've made your views pretty clear.

    Here speaks someone more ingrained in the Status Quo than Francis Rossi.

    I didn't ask what would change trust members minds, I stated that what we've got now should be enough to make people want change. I asked at what stage in the death spiral will people wake up to the fact that what we've got in charge will ultimately result in us having no club or a club outwith the league set up.

    That's just easy rhetoric without the back up of any sort of idea or plan. If you've an alternative, lets hear it. Last night was more or less about appeasement. Nobody is happy with the chairman, but the majority see him as a safety net that we've got to deal with. I can't see us moving forward with an attitude like that. Everybody was utterly appalled to hear of the lies JB has fronted through, yet people still want to deal with him? Not sure about the veracity of the statement that his business will suffer if he takes this club into admin. If that's correct, I'd wager he'd not be prepared to do that if only we'd play a bit more hardball.

    If the dross on the park, the dwindling attendances and the lies told off the park are not enough to drive you toward a more radical approach, then there's no point discussing it further. Sitting in JB's pocket, being fed crumbs from his table is not an approach that I, nor the majority of people I speak to, can endorse.

    A couple of points there: There's no guarantee that under the current stewardship that we'll have a club by the end of the season. The votes last night were more or less asking JB to give minor concessions whilst still working in partnership with him down the road of managed decline. Obviously the majority of the room (50+ risk averse men) carried the vote and that's the road we're headed. It's a democracy and I accept that, however I don't have to abide by it or like it. It was asked last night, when do we take action, when we're in the bottom tier, bottom of the bottom tier or the lowland league? I don't think either of those scenario's are acceptable and our fall requires arresting right now. I can understand there might be a "wait and see til the end of the season" attitude, but I think that could be a mistake.

    It was glossed over quite quickly, but I'm sure there was a not so veiled threat about the use of the badge and name made too. Whilst she may be stating the obvious that the young lads are contracted and their funding might have to come from other budgets if not supplied by the trust, there is an element of blackmail/threat in the tone of the letter.

    At the same time all the room did was dance around the edges of the chasm. Two from three votes were giving JB a little leeway and one vote was for the status quo in trust status. Not exactly radical, was it? Not much was really achieved and the majority of those in attendance have no appetite for any process to accelerate change. What was abundantly clear is the JB had told lies and tried to hold a gun to the trust's head. Even the letter from AMB had a threatening tone - talking about an impact on the park in January. We need to get shot of these guys from the club.

    Yes. The board tell lies. Lots of our fans are prepared to accept those lies ad infinitum.

    Will text you tomorrow. Assuming I don't get called away - yes.
