Dundee will be running about trying to see who they could sign for 500k in the January window.

One of the caveats of the award is that it cannot be used to pay for transfers (no idea how they will police that) or for monies to be withdrawn by directors.  If proven to have done this the grant will be repayable in full.

The likes of alloas wage bill will have been virtually entirely funded by the govt this season. What a joke. It's obvious that at least one club in the championship needed this kind of govt investment to survive but they couldn't give one club that and others less so we end up with this shambles to keep one or two clubs solvent.

Almost like they had someone involved in deciding how the money would be allocated

They’ll be lucky if it pays Charlie Adams annual salary.

It certainly doesn't cover the cost of his new home.

Figures being banded about that championship clubs are getting half a million quid each whilst league one are only getting 150k each.  Farcical if true. For a start running a full time club costs far more than a part time and yet likes of alloa and arbroath will be getting more than us Partick and Airdrie.

Get it up you! Merry Christmas Falkirk scum.

The wee club is getting a bit ahead of itself 😉 . You'll be disappointed when we and Dunfermline sign all your best players like usual haha.

I get that they have to draw the line somewhere but it doesn't seem right that full time clubs like Falkirk and Thistle with full time staff are getting less than a third of what Arbroath or Alloa are getting. 

Albion Rovers 100k

Falkirk 150k

Alloa 500k

Because Arbroath and Alloa play in a proper league and not some tinpot seaside joke. Next.

Nobody forced Falkirk or Partick to run a full-time setup in the third tier of Scottish football in the middle of a pandemic, it was your free choice.

We're fine with or without the handout thanks. Unlike yourselves who can't afford even to pay your manager and have been bleeting about having no money.  This will perhaps keep your club afloat for another 6 months before the begging bowls appear.

We will probably get more from this than we would if fans were allowed in. Money just rolls towards Dens. The Scottish Government clearly looking after us big clubs. 

Big clubs don't have to offer their creditors 0p in the pound just to stop them going bust.

Can't say I'd she'd any tears for Morton going belly up. The sweety boy kept them going for years before he carked it and his son then said feck that I'm not pishing my inheritance down the drain on greenock feckin Morton.  They along with other sides obviously haven't cut their cloth accordingly to get through this season.  If your outgoings are far more than your incomings then you ain't going to last long and are taking up a championship spot that a club run properly financially could be taking up. Good to see that it's clubs that voted yes to last season's debacle that could be going tits up.

After their greeting to the SFA in the McKinnon affair I'd happily see them disappear into the ether to be honest.

Good to see Queen Nicola striding in to save Scottish football's real establishment club with a hefty wedge to see out the pandemic.

You sit down and fester down there with your bitter seethe and measly 150 grand instead.

Thanks for playing anyway.
