Livingston - all the threads merged

Recommended Posts

Haven't heard or seen any interviews but if this is indeed the case, I am very surprised that he hasn't taken the deal. He will now get nothing.

I wonder if he will come out and say that he doesn't understand process over here and that he did all he could to save the club.

Players will be paid off last- sadly the non playing staff are being made redundant as we speak- the only group of folk who deserve any sympathy in this.

Too true, sadly.

However, I thought the 'players' were now legally free to do as they please.

There really is no hope going by that.

So he bought the shares for £1, is offered £25,000 plus future payments and still say's "nah, I'll take nothing"? :huh:

Wouldn't surprise me if he's playing mind games just now and then will accept the offer tomorrow morning to be honest. I'm almost expecting it.

I'm sure it wouldn't bother him in the slightest. Waving it at the tens of fans wandering about outside the ground would be much more amusing.

:lol: :lol: :lol:

Just been listening to McGruther on Radio Scotland. Basically Livi fans have a club until tomorrow night. Then that's it.

Just heard the same interview but i'm none the wiser. Given that the deadline has now passed and Massone is refusing to sell. McGruther has said that staff will be laid off today and following the SFL meeting tomorrow the players would potentially follow.

As with other previous threads its just sounding like he's given Massone a further 24 hours to agree. Although I understand he wants a deal done its prolonging the agony for the Livi fans. They've sat and watched today and then effectively been told it'll now be tomorrow....or is it actually all over now?

I really wish I could just get a straight answer!

I'm no expert, but from what I gather any promise of future dividends is slightly disingenuous on the part of the administrators.

From the outside, Massone looks utterly insane. But I have no doubt he knows precisely what he is doing.

Yep, astonishingly, Massone is refusing to do a deal.

However if he changed his mind this afternoon I still reckon the deal could go through. McGruther didn't say the midday deadline was absolute. Livingston have until McGruther's meeting with the SFL tomorrow. If there's no change in the situation then, then the club will be booted out and that really is curtains.

Can still see a few twists and turns in this yet but I must admit I'm amazed he hasn't taken the offer on the table. What can he possibly gain from his current course of action?

Can't wait to see the DBM chasing him round the Almondvale carpark on youtube :lol:

Correct,McGruther stated that the final deadline was midday then went on to say unless the shares were transferred pre the SFA/SFL meeting tomorrow so in affect Massone has till tomorrow to agree

Talk about dragging it on

I still think a deal will be done and Livi will survive

I thought the same, but surely it is too late. Whether he accepts anything now or not ( assuming he still has anything to sell now ), the league have to take action and that almost certainly means the end for Livi. At best they might be allowed to apply for the 3rd division space for next season.

Seen on a livi fan site that the police have arrived, looks like he could be about to try

and leave the stadium.

We're into the corridor of uncertainty period now- the deadline wasn't absolute and McGruther will make more money if Massone transfers his shares, and he is then able to sell the club to the highest bidder. However without those shares he is administering an organisation which is bleeding McGruther's money, so the plug will be pulled.

Massone seems as clueless as ever though. I can't remember a more farcical situation in senior football than this.

They are there to protest at not getting paid either. :lol:

That would probably be worth Sky Sports putting a bid in to show it live.

Same here. He'll just be wanting them to stump up more than £25k under pressure from the fans and will pay up tomorrow when they don't.

Plenty to keep the press on their toes.

From what I picked up from it I thought it sounded definate. But I was driving so it didnt have my full attention.

Gutted. Absolutely gutted.

So where does this leave the council with the "we took this step to guarantee a long term future"?
