  1. Jack Ross Must Go.

    Would anybody have changed the team for the Morton game? I suspect not. The team, in general, didn't perform and we got our asses kicked. Onto the next game, treat it like the first game of the season again and take it from there.
  2. Consultation/Involvement..?

    You imply that myself and others who challenge how SMISA go about their business do not understand how SMISA operate. Its because we know how SMISA operate is why we’re vocal - the other 1280 or so souls are simply taking SMISA at face value and presume that SMISA know what they are doing. It's about SMISA doing things right and that’s where the trust comes from.
  3. Poor R*ngers Theads Merged.....

    Yeh, they might have been a bit hard done by this time but how many times over the decades have those type of decisions went for the home team.
  4. Consultation/Involvement..?

    Gordon isn't St Mirren. As has been said, any member can put in their suggestions but if a director of the club does and it's for a direct financial benefit of the club, then is there not a conflict of interest? It is appreciated that smisa's whole reason for existence is for the benefit of the club but that is maybe why a director who is also a smisa member should refrain from making suggestions on how smisa money is spent. I may have embelished the last part, should have been debit card.

    Whilst not on point, watching programme about tax dodging hunts, astonishing how they feel hard done by when been having had their erse felt for robbing the public purse. Deport the feckers, dont care where.
  7. Consultation/Involvement..?

    Therein lies a problem. It's not that people don't want the club to benefit from smisa funds, it needs to be put to a better use - smisa buying weights for the club when the club partner a gym?
  8. Consultation/Involvement..?

    Why would we want to stop St Mirren FC putting in suggestions - because they are not members of SMISA, it is for SMISA members to come up with the suggestions and then vote on them. It should also be remembered that SMISA have a rep on the board of the club, not the other way around. If the club are continually to put in requests for funding via whomever and then for the funding to be waived through, then what is the point of having a SMISA board? The club can just get the cashline card and do with money as it see's fit.

  12. Re the strip, i did note from an online photie of Reilly that the badge had came off.
  13. The 3 Monthly Spend

    Kenny, my comments re legal help wasn't really for advice on the vote, it was bearing in mind that SMISA in the not too distant future, will be running the show so it was more on good governance in general so as it might avoid issues and make life a bit easier.
  14. The 3 Monthly Spend

    Kenny, i wasn't having a pop, more trying to summarise for baz what had gone on before. This 3 month spend, plenty of choice, can't really complain. For now, it is what it is.
  15. The 3 Monthly Spend

    Myself and a couple of other posters have, from a wee bit back, questioned the way SMISA operate, how they take decisions, are they in accordance with their own rules etc etc. My belief is that we're doing this as we want SMISA to make the correct decisions in line with their own rules and not how they may have operated in days gone by when their was maybe not so many members and the subs coming in were not so significant. Since the buyout, the ante has upped massively and there is now (or should be) an emphasis on good governance - make sure you do what your supposed to do and not what you've always done. Unfortunately, it's not only myself that has seen SMISA floundering on this front - no-one but Kenny communicates; no votes taken at meetings; no numbers taken of those in attendance at the meetings etc. And we're still awaiting Minutes from the last AGM, an AGM that sought to change the rules. Please read the rules to see what is required to actually change the rules. I'm lucky that I'm part of a firm that have recognised experts in their fields (governance; charity law; lending) and I offered to pay for SMISA guys to meet, get advice etc etc. Alas, no SMISA takers (the offer still stands by the way). So what am I (and others) to think when it comes to the 3 monthly spend?
