9) The hot-tub

Nothing wrong with the hot-tub/crane/trucks etc.

Brought in money and gave us and the companies exposure.

Was spending a bit of time last night trying to think of all the utter horror decisions that our club has made over the past decade or so.

1) Convincing our fans that 7th place in the SPL wasn't good enough for us and getting our fans convinced we were going for "The Next Level"

2) Hughes throwing money away on signing his old, injury-prone pals whereas before we'd been a successful team with young, hungry players (the decision to replace Jack Ross with Jackie McNamara was particularly criminal)

3) Giving Eddie May longer than three weeks when it was plainly obvious by September that he was hopelessly out of his depth and going to get us relegated

4) Replacing May with Pressley

5) Giving Pressley more time after him making a pigsty of our post-split fixtures in our last SPL season

5.5) Being told at a fans' meeting that we were financially on the verge of going bankrupt only to have our Chairman at the same meeting telling us we were still looking to pay for a fourth stand

6) "Our Time"

7) Giving Peter Houston longer than three weeks when it was plainly obvious by September that he was hopelessly out of his depth and going to get us relegated

8) Allowing Hartley to sign so many untried and untested players

9) The hot-tub

Anything else?

10) Signing Jamie MacDonald.

What the hell even is that? Honestly can't believe you would be so cruel as to bring that to anyone's attention

It was even better (worse?) in the flesh, they were using a jazzed-up version of the MOTD theme tune instead of the music on that video.

It's basically a top ten of what happens when people are unable to back up their ego with a suitable level of knowledge and ability.

 

Sadly continuing to this day, where we have a board that are good in ideas, but shite at execution.

That's the edited highlights, the best bits. Most people ignored them, some just stood in stunned astonishment.

How on earth is having an ambition to finish higher than 7th a bad thing?

Partick Thistle, Inverness, Motherwell, St Johnstone and Kilmarnock(all clubs with smaller attendances than us) have all finished in the top 6 recently.  Being ambitious is not a bad thing. There's far too much criticism of our board for criticism's sake on here.

There's nothing wrong at all with the ambition. The issue is when you spend money you don't have, in the hope that you can finish high enough to repay it. It's compounded when you finish well lower than that, effectively blowing the arse out the following budget. As I said above, it's ego driven decisions that are poorly thought out and executed, time and again.

Still deciding how would be best to react to the reasons to dance video.. Should I be angry? Should I be laughing? f**k knows.

But it hurt watching that.

Not quite as uncomfortable as seeing the wee lassies entertaining the Morton fans at Cappielow.  Might be what they enjoy over there.

Let's go down the Rangers, Livi, Gretna, Motherwell and Dundee route.

Buy now pay later and I'm sure it will all end well.

The most annoying thing about that is 4/5 of those clubs are currently Premier league and don't give a f**k about what they done.

(Please don't point out Rangers are dead)

You missed out Hearts....think they might be top flight too.

How do you control for that?


If you are working closely with someone you will quickly get to know if they are pulling your chain.

For me it is about working together to ensure everything goes as well as it can. As I stated earlier 3 out of the last 4 windows have been a disaster. Something has to be wrong surely?

Nothing at all, providing you have the means to back it up.

We didn't, and we've been on a downward spiral ever since.

I still can't figure out what was supposed to be happening there. Baffling doesn't quite cover it. 

 

Good new about Mitchell being back in training though.
