Who owns Livi FC now that John Ward has departed? He owned the club or thats what we were fed when he moved into CEO role

 

Gimmie a guess - Rankine? 

 

Nothings changed it looks like! 

 

#livismokeandmirrors

I'd say a lot has changed, we're not spunking money about all over the place for one, that's a big change, appear to be running things pretty well off the pitch too, as well as on the pitch. Not had any adverse publicity of financial problems for a few seasons, in fighting, any sign whatsoever that players or staff are unhappy.

 

Dunno who's coming in now but hopefully it carries on the same way Ward had it going, and we don't attract some Massone type shyster looking to make some quick dosh from fucking us over. 

I remember reading an article in the DR when Gordon Ford took over, saying there was no reason we couldn't be a Premiership club, and I was thinking he was away with the fairies talking nonsense, unbelievable that we've actually turned things around so quickly and have actually got there. Last season felt surreal, don't think anyone could believe it when we won the play offs, even the players looked like they were thinking, feck we're in the Premiership next season.

As far as we know we’re not spunking money. We’ve no bank debt that's a positive. We must have made money this season surely? 

We know Rankine is not allowed  shares in Livi unless that position has changed?  We were told Ward was new owner of the club. He has gone now and by all accounts he was a very decent guy.

Asking a very simple question. Who owns Livi FC?

Heard we're looking at Falkirk's Ciaran McKenna.
Young lad with some "baggage"....sounds like our type of player

Who do we think will be captain next season? One of the current players or will we try bring in a new signing and make them captain? Halkett has captained this side very well last couple seasons

Lot of people mention Byrne. Lithgow stepped into the captain's role against Hibs when Halkett was missing and I thought he did great. Either of them would be a good choice but I'd opt for Lithgow, his communication seems to be slightly better than Byrne's

I think it should a current player as our success has been built on continuity so this would be consistent with that. 

A concern I have about it being a defender is that it might affect their concentration. I’d have less of a concern for a player further up the park. Unsurprisingly, i’m not a professional footballer, so it may not be an issue.

It shouldn’t be decided just on communication I don’t think. I would say Gallacher is a lot more vocal than Halkett but Halkett is a leader the way he plays on the park. Kelly speaks well and constantly shouts instructions to teammates

I daresay Byrne isn’t even a starter at the moment, so will be interesting to see if he can win his place back in the side. At the start of the season I thought he would’ve been a shoe-in, but there’s actually a few credible candidates in the side: Kelly, Lithgow, Byrne, Jacobs and Pittman.

I wouldn’t say he isn’t a starter. He was arguably our best player at Celtic park behind Liam kelly. If he wasn’t sent off vs Dundee he would have played every game. Jacobs is a good shout to but he doesn’t play every game if there’s a game midweek and a weekend game

Agree that Byrne has had a spell on the sidelines because of that sending off. I thought he would get the nod for Celtic Park because his ball retention is good and he is up there with Robinson in winning ‘clever’ free kicks, IMO.   Keaghan isn’t in the team regular enough either so by process of elimination I guess Lithgow gets it? I don’t think we need to draw any more attention to Kelly as he is inspirational as it is and I expect he’ll bark orders regardless. ...Unless Byrne remains in the team now. Anyone’s guess! :lol:

Season ticket prices have been announced. £300 early bird rising to £325. Very good value. 

It’s would be great if we could reach the 3,000 mark again.

Also, from Holt, “Hopefully we can win on Saturday and that'll start a wee five-game unbeaten run. That is the challenge we have laid down to the players: can we go the rest of the campaign without defeat?

"That would end the season on a really good note.


“We have a chance to give one or two players a bit more game time and have a look at them. However, we won't make wholesale changes because it's not fair on the other teams in the bottom six. I wouldn't do that."

I’m hoping one of those players is Tiffoney - it would be good to see what he can do up top with a run. Wylde could do with some game time too.

Sorry, should’ve made that clearer. I’m sure we had 3,000 season ticket holders when we first made it into the SPL. I’ve questioned whether Livingston will support a top league team but those figures have given me a bit of hope.

Livi deserve a far greater support than you muster,  but surely 3k ST holders is a stretch too far ?

Is it evident I’ve had a few pints? I should’ve said that it would be good if we could build back towards that over the next 3-5 years. No way do I expect that many ST for next season. Going forward, the town continues to grow and while a lot of people arrive in Livi with ‘the family team’ connection I’m hopeful we could top out at the 3,000 one day again.
