    He seems to be a bit more isolated in this case. Only time will tell how long he is prepared to continue with the charade.

    Twitter mainly but I wouldn't be surprised if it wasn't mentioned in the papers tomorrow. Try Colin Paterson's account.

    Have been amazed at the reaction to J B's statement last night from the wider footballing community. The chairman won't be enjoying it one bit. It's probably the first time he's come under any real pressure from anyone other than ourselves. Picking a fight with the press seldom results in good outcomes.

    Who was the guest manager today ?

    I might be wrong but the 100% of the shares was before TW came on the scene and it was the original 5 investors who insisted on the 100%. The only conclusion I can come to is that they wanted the Ballantynes out with no interference from anyone else. Don't know if the others waiting in the wings are of the same mind. Personally I would settle for a controlling interest.

    Can anyone remember, think it was two years ago, when an ex Livi director took the club to court over the repayment of monies owed ( soft loans) Basically he was hunted.

    Thinking back was it not both who blinked together back in July when TW pulled the plug ?

    If what was said last night is true ie funding is in place for the rest for the season then I don't see anything changing. The stuff about JB desperate to get out am starting to take with a pinch of salt. If he was genuine he would be doing everything in his power to facilitate the sale, however this doesn't seem to be the case.

    Why? Genuine question.
  11. Airdrieonians off season thread 2017

    I don't disagree with anything you're saying here but from the other side of things ie the elderly, for some the thought of losing two clubs in a lifetime is too much but I take your point that we're probably heading that way anyway.If we were to drop a division or end up out of the leagues altogether I believe it would be too late to ever come back. Apparently there was no one to take the team at training last week until someone managed to get Billy Davies in. Christ knows who's taking them this week.

    For people to vote for a so called accelerated change then they need to be confident that the club will still be there at the end of it all. If they had that guarantee I don't think there would be a problem.

    I don't think there will be a fans rep, what would be the point? Last night was just a case of going through the motions. As far as accepting the terms of the other two votes are concerned, well Ballantyne doesn't have any choice. No contract, no money. I didn't appreciate AMB's threat that if the trust changed their status then they wouldn't be allowed to use the club's crests, name etc. A red rag or what. You're probably correct about the two camps but I don't believe anyone is happy, more, reluctantly accept. If however the people in the shadows stepped forward it might be a different story.
