The stadium needs bulldozed and we can start again.

 

Can we swap with Morrisons ?

No but a season with out rent while the stand is effectively mothballed would have been a nice gesture, 80k for a stand we can’t and don’t use is a waste of money. It would be easier to swallow if the money was going toward paying off an asset we would eventually own. Renting especially in the current circumstances makes no sense. 


We pay more renting that stand than Livingston pay WLC for their whole stadium. Great deal that

Do you ACTUALLY know that we are still paying rent at the moment? I believe it’s frozen....

No, I don’t know, that’s the reason I asked the question in the first place!  Various other posters then suggested we are indeed still paying rent. It’s a pretty relevant question considering the stand isn’t being used at present. Do you know that we are NOT still paying rent? It’s a fair assumption to presume the rent situation is exactly the same as it was pre covid without the club or SA having communicated otherwise.

Always though it was excessive, certainly no gift or favour from a fan. It’s 100% been seen as long term investment opportunity for SA personally, nothing more nothing less. Dunfermline also pay the consortium that bought in during administration less in rent for the whole stadium than we do for that one stand.

Looking forward to being fed more bs.

 

 

If the season's done, we'll be having it called the same way as last season.

SFA- Leagues one and two can’t play. Even if they offer to test.

Also the SFA- aye lads, off you go to Greece to referee a game. Shame one of you tested positive for Covid. The other two don’t need to self isolate and can run the line/referee another game when you return.

Pathetic, bewildering and another embarrassment from our governing board who hide behind “SFA” We’ve now had the Aberdeen Kings Street booze party, the Celtic “lads trip” and the  Govan flat party. Add on the Greece fiasco and they see fit to stop our bottom two leagues who have put all the required testing in place, but still see fit to indefinitely put on hold. Surprised there’s not been a more vociferous response.

Pretty sure a few years back i think it was during one of Livvys administration that WLC were looking to bulldoze Almondvale

They were going to build them a 5,000 seater in exchange for them giving up their lease on Almondvale.
Apparently the owners at the time were trying to buy the stadium for £1,000,000 with the help of a couple of senior council people pushing it through. Then the owners intended selling it to developers with the council folk being adequately rewarded. It all went cold when one of their MPs up there got jail time for another scam of falsifying expense claims. Think the council people got cold feet after that.

The whole West Lothian thing seems to be a real magnet for crooks.
