No offence, but that sounds like a Project Fear story. 

I'm pretty sure ML cut all ties with the club when the rest of the BOD basically forced her out. The thought of her getting involved again - and doing so with AT - seems unlikely. 

What if she has a chip on the shoulder due to rightly being forced out?

The shittest sounding lawyer firm.

If the small shareholders mobilise and get our votes in the Rawlins bid will pass, people just need to be made aware.

Was told today that the MSG members who are not backing it are in favour of another bid -  which is also getting pushed/backed by, wait for it.....Margaret Lang and Andy Thompson (who I believe also has a fair chunk of shares).

We get the club we deserve if that happens. And I will probably have to find some other hobby. 

 

Our shitebag support will probably break out the welcome banners.

Forget chips on shoulders, we need all minor shareholders voting on Rawlins investment. The alternative is just not worth contemplating

Listened to the podcast with the Rawlins just now.

Night and day compared with last summers charlatan.

It would be a calamitous situation if this investment is lost due to warring cliques and vested interests in the comfy seats.

I think it will fall short unless one of the larger shareholder abstains or votes the other way.

 

Surely the main players are SA and MR and I would guess they are on side.

They are but unfortunately LM, DM and PH are not hence the need for the minor shareholders to help vote this through. Our vote actually matters this AGM and could make the difference

I'd be very surprised at Margaret Lang getting involved in anything again with those shareholders after the way she was treated by the rest of them the last time.

Sitting here with my head in my hands reading this.

 

Being stuck down in the netherworld forever, with permanent boardroom shenanigans and a spiraling quality of team is a real risk.

Real existential stuff, or Clyde/Airdrie meaninglessness could lie ahead.

Think some sort of demonstration is due IF we pass up on this deal. Okay they are a buy low sell high couple but with that in mind they will do their upmost to increase the share price. If I had a couple of hundred grand spare I would think we are a great investment opportunity.

No no Shadwell, the new posters are " bang on" with their info, even if they'll disappear like snow off a dyke as soon as the vote is closed and their cheerleading is done. 

I don't have any ITK knowledge of boardroom shenanigans as it was never an area that interested me, as one or two folk who know me personally will confirm. I have no skin in this game. And from what I can see from public statements the Rawlins investment appears to be sound. They have a proven football background, money to spare, experience that will be useful and credible reasons for wanting to get involved. 

It seems ideal for us with no obvious downsides. Were I a shareholder I would be voting for it. 

Do you know what puts me off? The only thing I can find fault with? 

The PR effort that's gone into promoting this and rubbishing a possible alternative. Not so much on official channels but on various fan forums. The scare stories, the cheerleading, the reliable sources who only seem to give out information that points one way.  All of it makes me uneasy. It smacks of trying to manipulate people to get the result you want which I'm not comfortable with from a football club.
