Not to mention "pay what you want" season ticket and match entry as well as generous charity donations.

It might not have worked out well but surely the club should’ve been applauded for trying something new. 

While i agree the £10,000 to cash for kids looks foolish now but are we really having a go at club for giving to charity.

im no finance expert but maybe that reduced tax bill or something.

Both were laudible.
Both were foolish.
Both were ultimately negligent in regard to the future wellbeing of the club.

This is not hindsight. I thought it at the time.

There’s got to be a balancing act. If you don’t spend money on Park then you end up bottom of league and it becomes false economy.  If rovers go down they lose the Spfl money then they won’t be able to service any debt.

You wouldn’t pay all your wages towards clearing your mortgage early to sit in the house with no TV or couch 

Was there enough money that splitting it would make a substantial impact on either problem?

You can almost be certain that the banks will ask for the loans to be paid back pronto and overdrafts to be cleared almost straight away, should you lose your SPFL status. Is there a plan in action for that?

10k to Cash for Kids from limited funds must rank as one of the stupidest gestures from a Scottish football club since Celtic paid Bobo Balde more than 30k a week. Utter nonsense when faced with continually pish crowds and a stadium in desperate need of investment.

Still, that's in the past but I fear for Rovers if they don't retain their League status.

Clearing a debt frees up future cash and makes sense.

There's a feature on Albion Rovers in this month's "When Saturday Comes". McGlashan is alive and well in Coatbridge it seems:

"..'That's the man' exclaims one with delight in response to a friend's anecdote 'that's the man who was arrested for shouting abuse at a car just because it had an English number plate. There wasnae even anyone in the car!'..."

I wasn't having a go at his footballing ability, the name just rung a bell from local papers.

He is a cracking wee player. Strong with both feet, quick, tenacious, and bags of heart. if he's with us through some poor life decisions, then hopefully we can help him find his proper level; I suspect that is higher than League 2.

There was a few jokes on the way out yesterday than giving the boy another bottle of champagne as MOTM might not be good for him. I'm sure he's passed it on to his Mum though :)

Yeah, P.J was released by Motherwell at New Year, and is apparently playing as a trialist in the hope of getting a full-time club.

No idea on #3, but will post it here once I know.

Be President or make Rovers great again? It's a no brainer, it really is, folks. By the way I'm going to build a bigger wall around Cliftonhill and make Airdrie pay for it!
