The Official Airdrieonians Thread - 2019/20 and beyond

Recommended Posts

Even though I have no idea of the Airdrie wage budget, I can't envisage how you end up overspending by that much.  If we generously say as an average that part time clubs spend about £5K a week in wages (that's 20 players at £250 a week) then that equates to £260K for the year (I reckon clubs will spend less than that overall though). Surely Airdrie haven't spent more than half of that budget again on wages?  Even allowing for the players Airdrie moved on/brought in, I cannot understand how that figure is reached.

I think what a lot of folk are alluding to is that we HAVEN'T overspent by that much, but it might just be a convenient way of disposing of a 6 figure profit from the Celtic cup game.
I'm not ITK but if there's accounts published that show that the Celtic money has been used to offset "losses" then major questions need asked.

PH has to sustainably invest – no Airdrieonians FC, no stadium – and vice versa.. Championship football would get more bums on seats, generate additional finance – but this will mean investment . If he is in the game of reducing his loses and putting minimum investment into the club, the stadium and club will ultimately die  - not immediately but they will die.  And that’s a no win for everyone including PH.

Bingo! Congratulations Roger Thornhill. 

Anyone with an IQ of higher than 10 can figure out its very much in PH's interest to have a successful football team. A winning team means a busier stadium. One must compliment the other. Something that's sadly been lacking for many years at Airdrie and is now being rectified. Some problems are being ironed out but the club will be better for it going forward once those with an agenda have been flushed out.

Ammo with the greatest of respect, I wouldn't speculate on hearsay.

When "The Consortium" eased out JB, I am as sure as I can be that every one of them made a contribution to the cause and may well be out of pocket as a result. Other than that, nobody knows who invested what and  what is owed to whom.

The rumour is that PH Used 150k of his own money to buy shares for him and his staff and is taking the Celtic money to recoup his investment for the shares

Diamond Dave, every post you have made since entering this site has been in support of PH and what is left of the Board. You are quite correct in saying that there is a lot of speculation about some of which may well be inaccurate.

However, there is one thing that is not open to question and that is the total contempt by the Club in dealing with the fans. There is zero communication. I stand to be corrected in this but I don’t believe the Club  have yet told us that a director resigned recently!

Would you care to comment on that?

Slightly off topic, but is it Vitoria or Victoria? The player that is. I'll ask the lads at Stranraer if nobody's sure...

Would you like to expand on "once those with an agenda have been flushed out"

Rumour!

Surely PH is bright enough to know that the fans would go mental if the Celtic money disappeared in this manner?

 

I'm sick to the back teeth of all this shite.

Thanks ,notice he plays right back at Rangers young team ,seems to be good player,Manager thought that position needed addressed,personallyI thought the left side and a striker would have been his priority ,anyway the young player will likely be better than what we have wherever he plays .
