Maybe he could be the new Archibald. No idea whether that’s a good thing.

Wild haha. I would certainly question why he'd want to get involved in a lower league Scottish club like ours but there's no doubt he's a man with money and (potentially fruitful) contacts. A full takeover would be asking for disaster IMO but if he's genuinely keen to get involved and can help the club progress then we'd be daft to turn him down/not look into it at the very least.

Although I heard this from a credible source earlier I don't know if I can buy into the Redknapp thing at all. 

Is the credible source called Jamie?

Papers don’t always ask the right questions.

Everyone has a price but apparently the Board are really enjoying running the Club. They’re ambitious and see us getting back into the top tier within the next few years. As such wouldn’t be looking to give up control of the Club.

Redknapp & McKay might not be looking to buy the Club but doesn’t necessarily mean there isn’t different deal to be done. I think there will be a few more twists and turns in this story.

I wouldn't trust The S*n or anything they publish either. 

I don't want Redknapp to fully buy over the club. I truly believe we're onto a good thing with the current owners and we've suffered at the hands of individual owners enough. But as I've said above - He's got money, resources, contacts and if he has a genuine and sincere motivation to be involved then we'd be daft to turn him down or at the very least not negotiate with him and see what he's got to say/offer.

Whatever anyone think of Harry, he's a character. I don’t know how much involvement he’d actually have in the day to day stuff but his mere involvement raises the Clubs profile and should add some entertainment.

I’m not sure if it’s Mark or Willie McKay that’s supposed to be involved. But either way they have no shortage of talent on their books. If they’re using us as a way to showcase they’re new prospects to sell on you’d expect/hope it would be a better quality of player coming to the Club.

 

P.S. don’t know if anyone noticed on the Airdrieonians Facebook page Mark McKay joined the other week.

I doubt we'll be signing players any time soon but the Daily Record has us as signing Stranraer goalie Max Currie. Very good young keeper. I would take that to mean Scott Gallacher will be away and, not that it officially means anything but, our two young goalkeepers Reece Willison and Andrew McNeil are on the PFA player availability list (as are Arran Ross and Robbie Leighton).

Certainly a lot of positive reviews of Max Currie going around. A young keeper along side Hutts is probably the way forward. Interesting that the article also suggests a part time deal when as we have mentioned previously, the big deal Miller made in the podcast about having a goalkeeper there full time.
