Didn't Gary Holt say we weren't signing him at the Q&A? 
 

About the only decent thing he did say that full night. 

What the guy who ‘has nothing to do with our recruitment’. Risky business putting your trust in his word 😂

Becoming quite concerned about this new board and the bright new dawn all being rather much more like same old, same old tbh. 
 

I think Rennie was a good appointment, but Holt still being around and them being a bit too quiet considering our position is a growing concern. 

The new board seem capable of taking us to a new level of unprofessional behaviour.

misogyny and no communication.

they are like a golf club committee from the 70s.

Tbf Goodwillie won’t divide the support as much as absolutely decimate it.

I’m out if we sign that disgusting rapist.

Goodwillie was going to be signed this time last year if it wasn't for his own latest stupidity

I do understand@Hughsie view about not fanning the flames of publicity.
But this is an exceptional situation, not just another average signing rumour.
I thought we were in the process of trying to sell some half season tickets for example…..

His name comes up during every bloody transfer window. Should the board have to come out every transfer window and say and by the way we aren't signing goodwillie this window either? It's nonsense. Theres been what one mention of us monitoring the situation in the bloody daily record and that's been about it . It's hardly been flooding the media. As usual though one mention by a dodgy tabloid and some fans are foaming at the mouth.  I'd rather that instead of putting something out about the goodwillie signing that we actually signed a bloody decent striker as that would put it to bed anyway.

I wonder which ex-Board member (or pal of) this is.

I worked in Criminal Justice for a time and I am really passionate about people being rehabilitated. To do that you must accept your crime and work towards never repeating it.
In the case of DGW he does not feel he has done anything to be remorseful for which is completely different. A big no no no from me.

What was he convicted for? Answer, nothing. It was a civil action.

Simply not true.

what has impressed you about the new regime?

No pre-match interviews. Nothing from our CEO (other than personal political views). Radio silence.

serious question - where do you see improvement?

Well done. It takes big balls to stand up and say "LOOK AT ME. I'M A FUCKING IDIOT"

We both agree (for once) that it’s time the club came out with something on future strategy.
However it takes about 5 mins to shut down negative publicity but the club haven’t done it which only allows the rumour to grow arms and legs and keep alive the possibility that’s it’s not just a rumour after all…..

What "negative publicity"? You'd think our alleged interest in Goodwillie was all over the media. It was literally one line in some speculative, quote-free tabloid nonsense that had Raith Rovers as the frontrunners to sign him. Nothing even remotely worthy of a response from the club. A quick glance at their thread or official website and it doesn't seem to be a thing at all. No discussion about the morality of his signing. No demands for RR to issue a formal denial. Just a statement on the official website about signings, contract renewals, players leaving. Basically a club seeming to be going about their business in a reasonably professional manner, and by f**k I wish we'd get this Goodwillie nonsense in the bin once and for all and start addressing the deep-rooted problems that we are drowning in, because there's more than enough of them at the moment without all of this utter garbage. Move on.

Nah, it takes balls to stand up on this forum and say "you don't really understand what you're talking about"

Hmm, I wonder how we could do that?…

Theyve only been in the door 5 mins FFS and the place has been left in  a complete shambles. They need to sort that out as well as ensure that the manager has a budget to bring in players to prevent us getting relegated.  Let them get on with the job and then see what the results are like before giving them pelters.

Certainly not by issuing some nonsensical statement in response to one line in a tabloid newspaper article.

I'd rather he signed the next 50 seasons worth of players than sign that c**t.

AIUI, that one line in the Daily R****d prompted Raith fans to contact their representative who took their views to the board and a major sponsor reacted to the one line by making it clear she did not want the rapist in shirts with her name on them. Raith - through fans and sponsor(s) - reacted quickly to quash the rumour.
