The list of godawful commentators and "analysts" is growing rapidly.

I think I said on a match thread where the hitherto reasonable McCoist was making a show of himself, I am convinced these days they are told to be partisan, to carry on like fans. (and maybe in the case of the BT ones like McManaman and Owen, to also be mind bogglingly stupid)

It's the only explanation I can think of, and I think I maybe blame Chris Sutton for it.
 

McManaman and 'fletch' going on about an all English final in the Real Madrid City game talking about how City and Liverpool were miles ahead of everyone else in Europe before Real made their comeback is probably one of my favourite tv moments in history. From total smugness to silence in  a matter of minutes 😂

And all over again in the final.

Arthur Montford - you could put all these cheeks/cretins into one brain, wouldn’t touch good old Arthur.

Guys like Arthur Montford and Dougie Donnelly, who supported Morton and Clyde respectively presented these programmes for years. You don’t get near these shows now unless you are affiliated to one of the bigot brothers.

I see that the Board are looking for more people to join the Patrons Group.

£10k a pop to help cover the £400k projected loss.

I wasn’t aware the patrons group had ever been a closed shop? They are continually looking for investment and new members are they not? I know a few of the guys already there are considering putting in more cash which would obviously increase the groups shareholding. Ideally however the FSS should be grown in tandem to match the patrons overall shareholding but unfortunately the membership seems to have stalled at the 500 mark so it may well be left to the patrons group to pick up the slack by increasing its shareholding and injecting liquid cash if the guys are indeed able to scrape some more finance together and fair play to them if that’s what they do having already invested a considerable amount last year.

Had they ever stopped looking for additional patrons?

No it's always been open  but it would  appear that they are pushing it more now as the need for more investment is obviously becoming more urgent as the cash levels drop.

No issues with the patrons group looking to add to their members. No different to FSS looking for members too, it’s all relative to what someone can afford to pop in either as a one off or monthly via PayPal. 

It’s all income to the club at the end of the day and helps increase the fans voice too. What fans would have an issue with this?

I certainly wouldn’t invest unless I was sure the whole projected loss was being covered as, if not, it’s just money down the drain.

Even 25 at £10k is well short of the loss.

Expect the auditors will need to be satisfied that they have the funds in place to meet any shortfall  before signing off the Accounts.

Any increase on budgeted match ticket sales, retail, hospitality, sponsorship etc eats into any shortfall too. Doesn’t all fall on FSS and the Patrons increasing payments.

Unclear of your post, you refer to the auditors as copied below. Is there a bigger issue than the reported 400K?

”the auditors will need to be satisfied that they have the funds in place to meet any shortfall  before signing off the Accounts.

They need to be satisfied that the company is a going concern which means they need to be sure funds are in place to cover the losses. Otherwise they will need to qualify the Accounts which has consequences.

They will need to examine the management accounts to verify the accuracy of the projected loss.

Boy mochrie looked a right player on Saturday.  

He played well in the 2nd half and showed some excellent touches but he had a great chance, which admittedly he made himself, then completely lacked composure in front of goal thankfully.

Utd sending him to a team managed by McPake also seems like a strange choice. During his whole managerial career, McPake has been a massive advocate of long ball tactics and I’m not sure how Mochrie fits into that.

Did we not back off from taking him?

Would certainly suit our style better than Dunfermlines blooter  up the park stuff.
