    On Ralston, aren't we always told that it was the facilities that helped to swing matters when we've signed decent players? That we have the training and development facilities of a top-six club? And it seems, to me, that in the batch of fantastic young players we've seen coming through over the past few years, that the investment has been justified. But the comparison to the Fakes is an interesting one. Perhaps we are playing the wrong game here - maybe we just let other teams develop players and save our money so we can assemble short-term squads and spend all our cash on wages and agents' fees. I don't agree with that, personally, but I would like us to find a way to exist comfortably in the top flight and also bring young talent through. Surely the two can co-exist at a club.

    Looks like whenever there are items in the vote that would give straight to the club, then those choices are always going to win, can't say i'm against anything that enhances the product on the park, but i am disappointed that we don't get much of a chance of helping the commuinity in general. It was one of the selling points of the bid after all. Maybe a vote which is free of any requests from the club every so often could address that.

    Have to agree about the Community side of things.The weights option should have been in the same section as the Sports Scientist with the other section only being for Community related stuff. Everything seems to be weighted in favour of the Club.There's not been a decent vote to date.

    The Ralston land isn't ours to punt. We have a long lease on it, and there might be a cost if we look to relinquish that.

    Are you kidding? John McGinn, Kenny McLean, Stevie Mallan, Jack Baird, Mark McAusland, Sean Kelly, Jason Naismith, Kyle Magennis, Lewis Morgan, Kyle McAllister to name a few... Look how many players we've brought through into our first team. Last year they saved us from slipping into League 1 5 star elite status too. Not to be sniffed at

    Democratic vote so no promises broken. The paying members made the choice on what the money would be spent on. SMISA have been completely honest from day one that the spending of the money would be the paying members choice. Also at no point did SMISA say every penny would go to community.

    If we play an exciting brand of football with a good string of wins you need a good PR machine to go out there and tell everybody Tony would be good for that. It's what Fergie did I remember Fergie even turning up at the dancin on a Friday night telling punters to come and watch us. That resulted in anything from 8 ,000 to 10,000 coming through the gate. Giving free tickets to groups can get young ones wanting to come back. I believe the brand of football we played at the tail end of last season is the way to get punters to come but as I wrote above you need good PR to take the word out to the community.

    It always has been weighted in favour of the club (especially the weights for the gym) Putting the vote into two tiers with a spend request from the club in each tier was a sure way of getting Jack the two things he wanted. If there is a way to set the choices in favour of club requests it will be done that way. Sad to see that the Panda club suffers at the request of the club though, no more "The SMiSA panda club" and the wider community who could benefit from funds and the possible knock on effect of that benefitting the club are not likely to get a look in.

    Looks like the options are "loaded" and, TBH, there is little real outcome than what the club sees as a request to "improve the club", all more whataboutery. The idea of helping the community was a selling point, as I recall, and there seems to be little of the cash doing exactly this. Never mind, the "we support the club till we're blue in the face" crew will be overjoyed and, after all, it is democracy.

    So we have paid the wages for the sports scientist for one year before the bowl gets passed around again? Smisa needs to grow a bit more of a spine and be willing to say these should be cost already accounted for within the running of the club.

    Hospitality Prices 2017/18

    I try and get to hospitality once or twice a season. It's always a good day out. I'd agree the quality isn't quite as good as when it was run by En Croute but have never had any problems with the service at all which has always been good. Pricing hasn't changed this season from last. As a small aside a glass of bubbly on arrival is only served at Cat A and B games, you don't get that at Cat C games. If you are an individual paying for it then the VAT element makes it quite expensive, but if you are booking through a VAT registered company who reclaim that VAT then it isn't a bad deal to take clients to a game, and offer them food and drink all afternoon for £85 a head.

    Our dedicated training complex has often been cited as a contributory factor when players opt to sign with the club. I'd be surprised if it doesn't have some influence (wouldn't want to overstate it, right enough - filthy lucre ruling supreme, no doubt). I spoke to Gus during the earth breaking ceremony for the new ground, and he said that the development of Ralston was hugely significant. He was clearly sick of trying to find parks that weren't entirely carpeted with broken glass and dug shite (white or otherwise).
