FC Edinburgh

Whole thing sounds a shambles. From the wrangling over the name (which sounds like a commercial issue more than anything else) to fact they might not get the stand as developer has objected and Edinburgh Leisure not wanting to give them an entry date.
 

Flat standing round the pitch or a seat in the glorified bus shelter is going to be shite for your normal mug paying £18 but don’t worry the corporate facilities are stunning.

Some good news (Innes Murray signing is brilliant and the new kit looks nice) but totally disheartened by the Meadowbank stuff. Can't see any way in which it will be a suitable home. I get the name thing but it's still pish.

Anyway this is a step too far for this supporter of 27 years. It smacks of the whole moving Meadowbank to Livingston thing and I look forward to watching Gary Jardine, Lairdy and Conrad at Civil Service Strollers next season.

I’ve not got to put up with you for two games next season 😀

Welcome anytime. So are you ready giving up on FCE,

Bit of a naff name should have went back to Postal United.

The person named as responsible for the Meadowbank debacle is June Peebles, CEO of Edinburgh Leisure. Nothing to do with Edinburgh Clowncil apparently. This whole sorry episode is just a series of people blaming everyone else without anyone standing up and taking responsibility. 

Interestingly Chairman Jim and Calum made reference to reading comments on Twitter and also there was reference to buying 'a pie and a Bovril' so maybes they are looking in here. 

Can't see the YoungTeam getting excited by the Fan Zone face painting, beat the goalie and the £12 concessions admission mind you...

Not sure it'll do any good but I might email her tomorrow and express my displeasure at the whole thing.

Good on you Tam. Well done for voting with your feet against this shambles

Why would anyone in Glasgow care what they rename the club?

Given what happened with Meadowbank Thistle and Wimbledon, I think every football fan should be concerned when an SPFL Club changes its name with no legal requirement to do so and no fan consultation.

No Glasgow club can take the name Capital City because Glasgow ain't the capital... which a lot of Weegies hate,

I hate to break it to you, but people don’t really care about that sort of thing 

Only in your head

I agree with that

I just found it a bit strange the poster would seem to think Glaswegian in general would care about the club being renamed Capital City

I wonder if the other potential users of Meadowbank are getting the run around too- Boroughmuir Thistle Women, Leith Athletic and I believe Hibs Women too.

Still, as long as the athletes who paid the square root of f*ck all at the old place are happy...
