There was all this talk of the Navy Blue Group guys having anything up to 800k to invest based on claims. It seemed to grow upwards every week, but sadly none of it has really materialised. The majority of those NBG people were on the patrons list Kenny Jamieson showed at the meeting. So it seems reasonable to now question whether the money was ever really there, or if it was empty boasts. If it is there, then hopefully as you say CP they can be encouraged to do what they said as now is the time to plough it in, to get us out of this division and not just let our biggest rivals romp to the title on their watch. Either way, as others have said, we need others to help, so I’d encourage others to do what our family has done and join up to FSS and/or buy shares if you can. I know times are tough but it’s a tenner donation. It’s also not really fair for folk to fire shots at some of the less wealthy patrons though, at the end of the day most of them are fairly “normal” fans who didn’t make big boasts, but normal folk that were lucky to be able to stump up 10k from life savings or retirement pots as a one-off, but who realistically were never going to be able to do it again six months later. Sad times for the finances. On a brighter note, it’s Scottish Cup day! There was never 800k mentioned. It was 550k and would jump to 800k IF Phil Rawlins wished to keep his 26% shareholding as he would have needed to put that sort of money in. When KJ launched the Patron group he made it pretty clear at the time that further investment could be required. It was never sold to us as a one off hit. As far as the “nothing has really materialised comment” do you actually know what you are talking about? 7 NB are Patrons and all invested and all will have done plenty since. Your comment as far as that goes is frankly ignorant of the truth. As far as the boast comment that should be treated with the contempt it deserves as it was a narrative peddled by a previous Chairman Edited January 21 by Back Post Misses 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
