The last B4L AGM agreed that the organisation would join its membership with FSS.  The problem is that David Lapsley reneged on that decision unilaterally and refused to let FSS have the membership list (thereby stopping B4L members having a say in the election of Fan Directors) and went to the club asking for shares to be given to B4L rather than what had been agreed which was the shares go to FSS. 

B4L is a great idea but it cannot be one person's playground to control what it does. If the club had given shares to B4L where is the democratic control of what would be done with them? No organisation is ever perfect but at least FSS has an active committee of 8 people and have annual elections and public events as well as online forums where people can discuss issues. Anyone can stand for election if they are a member. 

Ideally the two organisations will merge - the FSS committee have asked several times for this to happen but there has been no response from DL.

BfL had been in discussion with the club about shares for members' cash long before FSS conceived. Think I'd rather have personal shares anyway than have them turned over to a fans' group.

Any ex Director needs to think very carefully about any action they choose to take. It will become very public very quickly, and may well involve more than they might think.

For those aware of the movie Field of Dreams, I think the lot of them would be best advised to stay off the pitch and walk back into the relative safety of the cornfield.

As for the past being forgotten, nah, not yet. It’s not in the past, it’s in the here and now, and it’s because of them that we are where we are. Besides which, a couple of them decided to go after me and my son in a pretty vile way. It was ok because their cocksure arrogance and laughable incompetence made sure that they made a right c**t of that too.

Any former director who wants to keep themselves relevant by grinding their axes with club after the c**t they made of it, can simply f**k off and never come back.

They deserve way worse than any hounding they ever got and they ought to be grateful those currently in charge are allowing them to retain what dignity they have left, rather than really opening it all up to the fans.

Absolutely bang on....the world has changed since the days of Lambies offroad test ..descending on brockville etc....but nobody involved in the last few years should be anything other than ashamed for bringing our club to its knees...& it's worst ever season...which noone will convince me that this isn't considering the advantage we have over clubs like Dumbarton etc....last time we were this low we had similar gates to those teams & were part time

It all depends if you want a voice or not. Given the short amount of time FSS has been in place, I would venture that in terms of financial input, they can’t be far off matching B4L already. Plus collectively, they have some direct input that 400 really small shareholdings would never have.

See that Sean Mackie has been released by Hibs, so most likely he’ll be coming our way? One of six to be let go so would  be curious to see if we can get / should get a couple of them.

Would be good but where we are at present there will be more attractive offers out there.

Its a short playing career and very few will be keen on dropping down 2 divisions.
