Sons' sorrow

Football club fixes floodlights because the owners are now pretty much certain that Youngs Farm ain't happening and that they can't keep relying on league dispensation would be another way to look at it. If we're spending money on the current ground then its because the owners are having to change plans and look at a future that doesn't involve Youngs Farm.

We all thought that Youngs Farm was balls. If we're spending money upgrading the floodlights then it's a fair indication that the owners now also think that way. Which means we need to be concerned about what their next move is going to be.

We're not spending money on new floodlights if the owners are still pursuing Youngs Farm.

It’s not that deep.

Neil McKay is mentioning floodlights in his statement like it’s something him and the board deserve praise for or like it’s some sort of progrssive move that they orchestrated. They had to fucking fix them, they had no choice, whether that was via the owners pockets or spending some of the covid grants we received (which I’m led to believe is what funded the “upgrade”).

I’m not sure the owners give a flying f**k what the club spends its own money on.

Can the lights not be moved to a new location if need be?

I know it's not even close to an ideal solution thing to do, but this is DFC we're talking about here.

Btw does the form on the Sons Trust site still work for joining up? It mentions 2018.

Trust is hoping to launch a new website soon.

in the mean time if you send a message with contact details then somebody should get back to anybody who wants to join. 

[email protected]

Or get in touch via direct messaging on the usual social media platforms.

Would depend on the specifics of any new ground. At the bare minimum we'd probably need new control set-up, new pylons etc.. Then there's the issue of whether or not those lamps were suitable at a new ground? Would we need more? Would we need different types of lamps for a different lighting set-up? If we were moving in the near future then we'd have replaced any individual failed lamps on the old set-up and stuck another request for dispensation in with the SPFL.

Who runs our website at the moment? Is it DFC admin? The Mackay statement said they were waiting to go live with a new website. My worry is that the new owners have control of it

The trust runs the website.

The owners will kill this club whether I buy a season ticket or not. Is the plan for fans really just keep putting enough money in to keep us alive and hope we get the club back when these dicks get fed up? 

Fans need to organise some sort of plan or future buyout that fans can get behind, simply asking them to fork out for the team on the park that has failed for 4 seasons now won't work.

Really sorry to see you guys going down, hope you manage to get back up next year. You make some very good points, i feel some of your other Sons posters are buying the magic beans a bit from some of the responses.

The more I read that statement from Mackay the more insulting I find it. 

The trust rep on the board gives me the absolute fear as well. Now that the chairman has nailed his colours to the mast regarding the ownership situation we really need someone in there who is willing to stand up against everyone else and quite literally be the only opposition in the room. I don’t think for a minute she will do that. I have plenty of other concerns about her as well but that’s now my main one. 

We need shot of Neil Mackay urgently. The owners may be dangerous but having a man in charge who drinks in their pish like soup could genuinely be the death of us. I’d prioritise getting shot of Mackay over Farrell and I think supporters should very seriously consider making their voices heard. I will be emailing the club. I would avoid going through the Trust rep, if you somehow have a contact for her.

What would be the email address to use - the office?  I will also send one.

The bold Richard Feasby saying on the facebook post we will get behind Farrell and the players... had to double take at it.

The guy is going to pass out one day with the amount he screams at the players.  KAAMMONNNNNN, PASS THE BAW

That latest statement is a joke!

 

"we are slightly better positioned than in many previous seasons"

In what fucking world are we in a better position than previous years? We just got relegated due to a manager who showed no understanding on how to form a functioning football team both in defence and attack. We have a bunch of players on 2 year contracts that haven't been good enough and somehow we are in a better position??

 

This board are somehow more deluded that the absolute disgrace of our manager Stevie Farrell.

So, are we to assume that Farrdiola is remaining in place ?

Judging by that statement on the club website it seems we now have an answer - all that is missing is a sponsorship deal with P & O Ferries.

I'm assuming this is all to do with money, or the lack of it, surely to f**k it's not a football decision ?

The club seem to think they'll be able to budget for winning the league next season. If that's the case, it might be a better football and financial decision to budget for 4th instead and let someone competent take care of recruitment and coaching. 

Three statements over 2 days in which basically all we've been told is that the manager is staying. It's a good laugh this shit eh.
