    Wonder what the deal actually was. Should mean we’re completely debt free now as our only loans were from Cameron and not the banks I’m sure. I wonder if Cameron’s maybe written them off and it’s been a £1 sale.

    Will the sale be part of the companies accounts that are viewable? 

    Didn't sound to me like Cameron wrote off 100% of his debt, but whether the remainder was paid off in the deal or remains a liability I don't know.

    The one thing that gives me pause for thought is how the new owner refers to things as belonging to him with the club getting the benefit - the new land purchase, the hub. It would be better if the club owned these things and weren't beholden to an individual.

    His request for investors who do not expect any return is honest, but bold.

    I’m sure Hughes is a good coach but it’s pretty much accepted that when it comes to recruitment he’s fucking awful. It’s also hard not to dislike the man when you hear him talk. Seems to be all about him and what he’s achieved.

    Bumped into Yogi one day when I was out for a run and he was walking the dog. Stopped and chatted for ages and I just can't understand the dislike folk seem to have for him.

    I still have an issue with him from his time here as a player. Came in on big money, barely dragged himself around the field until he got dropped, only got back in the team due to injuries, then started acting like the big I am in the media ahead of the cup final as though he was some kind of club legend. Zero humility.


  3. I think they struggle to get up the pitch, especially when Moff is playing so deep. I struggle to identify patterns of play and the players still don't seem to know where their teammates are or what runs they will make.

     

    I would've loved to see a ball control clinic at Arbroath yesterday. Playing a winless team with presumably low confidence, it was important not to give them anything to defend.  Didn't work out. You'd think they'll improve as a team as the season goes on.

    Clubs are ultimately businesses, ones that employ people and make a economic contribution to their communities.  Given the financial support provided to other businesses, why shouldn’t football clubs seek support too?  Morton seem to be the club in greatest distress, and I don’t see much evidence they’ve splashed the cash - on the contrary, they’re taking extraordinary cash cutting measures like operating without a manager.  

    They have a massive squad. If they'd only signed players they could afford maybe we would have three points more than we do right now. Who can say?
