If the BoD are giving M&M until the end of the year, then obviously results will dictate if they get the permanent jobs or not. Of the next 5 games I would say that 4 of them are loseable. No disrespect to Stranraer, but we seem to have their measure this season. Although Montrose had a bad cup result they were in a good bit of league form, and the other three games are teams we have failed to beat so far this season. It is a big ask, but if we get maximum points it would be a bit of a kick in the baws to not give M&M the permanent jobs. Of course it might also depend on who applies for the manager's job, there might be an exceptional candidate who would be hard to refuse.

As many people have already said, if there is a wrong decision to be made then we can usually rely on our BoD to make it. 

Well going by reports the balance sheets are out today and are pretty dire reading. I'll need to have a decent look when I get home later but hardly surprising with these clowns in charge.

Do we have a date for the AGM yet?

The board/MSG need to set out their plans going forward.

Going to be another blockbuster AGM.

They really are a state, how interm is LM chairmanship? Are the MSG still looking to sell some or all of their shares? Who thought it was a good idea to wheel MC out to the fans before any DD? All questions they need to answer. If they have decided not to sell, there has to be a major cull in the boardroom, need people in there who are at least semi competent.

A member of the MSG.

One who made himself look rather silly at the EGM by making claims about the MSG which were immediately shot down by former fans who served as reps on the board.

Not in my opinion we need to get out of this league and we have players like the ones you mentioned struggling to find form and fans getting on their backs. Given the situation we are in it wouldn't be good a good environment for blooding youngsters in. Maybe 1/2 to sit in the bench but that's about it. Priority has to be getting out this league and we wouldn't be doing that with a team full of academy players. 

Can't it be both? We've had home games against Dumbarton, Forfar and Peterhead where we've been at least 2 goals up at HT, Stranraer away when the game was done on 67' and Linlithgow where we were comfortable the whole 2nd half. Plenty minutes for a couple of youth players if we had any.

Monumental losses I’ve been told, and if true, the current new loses to be reported new year are insurmountable. Seriously worrying and grave times.

Even after tonight’s results, there will still be fans of other teams in this league who believe this league is of a really high standard.

Nah, more like it’s not the pure shite some suggest. The games last night were in terrible conditions, and the play and score showed that. I’ll not argue for a minute that there’s a high standard of football in League One, but a bus load of people saying the level is worse than park league football are deluding themselves.

Is there a better online source than Companies House for financials and reports?

Is this really coming as a surprise to anyone? Dropped down a league, sacked a management team and cost us for the replacement (if that's included in the accounts?), released a number of players. Did anyone really expect us to post a profit?

The fact we've been dreadful but are only 3 points off the top sums the league up I'm afraid.

Nothing to do with the clubs accounts. Foundation built it with their funds, grants and a loan

 

Thats defo the case. I don't think they were very happy when Mr Campbell came in and tried to tell them he wanted to knock down their pitch to build his hotel etc when they had just taken out a loan to pay for the whole bloody thing.

£692.6k to be precise

 

Remind me how that compares to last year's number? Was it around 100k last year or something like that?
