Embdy else concerned that JB is more focussed on a spat with a two bit journo than giving us a manager. Even if the story is shite, how about an update on the manager we were promised an age ago rather than the parochial shite? Who's he impressing with these statements?

It seems to be the only details the fans are party to from the official site are rants from the Chairman when he is annoyed about something written in the press.Is this all we deserve ?

Aye, he's getting as bad as that mob from Govan with the tetchy statements. The "we will no longer allow this to go unchecked" line is spectacularly stupid.

Wonderful. Wish the Chairman would be a little bit more forthcoming about is happening rather that what is not happening.

Fair enough but if the story is a load of crap then he should come out and say so. Kevin Thomson didn't seem too chuffed with the story either.

Should they though? At the end of the day it's paper talk, should they come out and say a story linking you with a player is fake, or Tom Fry's comments that he turned down Stranraer to join the Diamonds (which isn't actually the case) is fake? He should be more professional than that and stay out of things, unless they are personal and require a reply.

I don't know the guy from the Advertiser, but I would be beyond shocked if he decided to just randomly link and then rule Kevin Thomson out of your manager's role - without anything to back it up. 

Targeting the media is the sign of a weak leader. Look at Trump & Rangers.

EDIT: Just had a wee look through tweets on the matter, and they are almost all from folk with the word 'Staunch' 'Loyal' or 'Pedro' in their bios. Gawd only knows what it's got to do with them. Edity edit: Another one has called Colin Paterson a snowflake. Right wing Twitter is weird.

Ballantyne carrying on like Donald bloody Trump. I'd be astonished if mark can't back this up - whether he would reveal his source is another matter.

How does he suppose he's going to do that? Tell Mark Pirie to run all his stories past him first? Like that's going to happen. What a stupid statement!

Yes he should, since rumours like that can have a corrosive effect on (already low) confidence in the club but he should have limited himself to saying "Thomson didn't apply, wasn't interviewed, wasn't offered, didn't turn down the offer" and either left it at that, or finished by giving some positive news such as we are hoping to appoint a manager sometime in the 2017/18 season.

We're encouraging all members who can attend to join us where we'll discuss:
What we've been working on behind the scenes since Tom Wotherspoon resigned;
How we propose to focus our efforts and prepare for the future. "

That's assuming you believe JB that he didn't apply, wasn't offered and didn't turn it down......

Stuart, do you actually believe anything JB says on this or any other matter?

JB publically ranted at the Tiser at the last Trust meeting in the Workies when the Tiser clearly quoted "a Trust spokesman".  That fuelled this war between them.

I'll float this idea out there that someone at our club, or authorised, has spoken to KT about some coaching arrangement which may have included us using KT as as a consultant or whatever and that offer has fallen through.   That way JB has been disengenius yet again by cleverly getting to Mark Perry by attacking his poor wording and graspof the situation.

I personally feel let down by the Advertiser.   We have a club thats been pillaged by gangsters who have been brought in by out dodgy, manipulative, sectarian bigot of a chairman, and they are pussying about with a low calibre reporter.
