  2. Budgets can be and are adjusted when cash flow increases (or decreases), though. Had there not been so much cash incoming, the cloth would have been cut to suit. Simple as that.

    You genuinely don’t think we can use any of the data from previous votes as evidence to how people will vote in the future? That’s quite an outlandish claim. Almost LPM level infact.
  4. Today
  5. £35,000 directors remuneration seems very high considering any car lease benefits etc would be under business expenses.
  6. A few things worry me; 1. When it comes to expenses, it is a lot easier to scale up than scale down. If we are carrying massive overheads due to wages there will be a season soon when we don't have any transfer income and we make a considerable loss. 2. Selling Morgan, Mallan, McGinn should have been an opportunity to build some cash reserves. History, and data from similar clubs, would suggest we are not going to be able to keep selling a player every season. The academy has been overperforming. For that money to have been spent on wages for players we didn't need (such as Donati), transfer fees (Heaton) and payoffs of guys who should never have been employed (Jackson) is poor management. 3. 700k is a lot of money - we had the axe hanging over our heads for most of the 90s, and ultimately had to leave Love Street for our current legoland home due to a debt of around 2m. I get the point that expenditure went up in January because we had the Morgan money banked, but the wider pattern seems to be money to be flowing out the club quite easily, and I don't think the way Scottish football is set up guarantees us that it will come back in easily. We are walking a tightrope here when we don't need to. Given the success of the academy, we could have been building up some cash reserves.
  7. A players worth is strongly influenced by how financially stable the club is. That has a much stronger impact on the sell value than the actual ability fo the player. That's why Hibs are able to hold on to McGinn for so long until they get millions, while we end up accepting peanuts for Lewis Morgan and Stevie Mallan. If clubs know we are financially secure (and our player is on a long enough contract) they will need to bid more.
  8. Indeed I do Ireland are pish, Fitzy makes a good point. He'll be a full international in no time.
  9. The only concern for me is whether we took the gamble on players wages before we knew for certain that the Morgan/Mallan money was coming in. If we did then it should be worrying the crap out of everyone. I think we'll be OK this year thanks to McGinn. Next year we'll get a nice payment from Europe hopefully so that should be OK too. The question is what do we do in 3 years when we don't have enough coming in to pay the bills. We can't be spending this amount of money at that point.

    No, there is not. The question posed previously was to save the money and add it to a future pot. That is quite a different question to "Save the money until The Buds is bought.

    Thing is that should have been the case. The Swiss are known for defending well first and foremost, by going 2-0 up we would have ripped their gameplan apart. Its abysmal to have f**ked that up, and in some style too. Looks like Boyata in particular is getting the big criticism but Kompany is receiving plenty too. Still not actually had a chance to see for myself what happened.

    Very true. The "loyalty " card works both ways... Or... Rather.. It doesn't. Tough business.

    I tend to take the same view. Hope he proves himself as number one.

    What ? You mean ..... Someone on here was talking SHITE !?! Surely not ? I would hope the individual concerned had the good grace to admit he’d made a James hunt of it .

    Where exactly does Fitzy mention playing for Scotland. He mentions international call up but makes no reference to Scotland specifically.

    St.mirrens First choice keeper

    By all accounts he'd a couple of bad games earlier in the season. However, he was a good keeper at Falkirk and was highly rated enough by Aberdeen to get a new contract, so I expect he will be the choice. Lyness I know very little about but his pedigree isn't as good as Rodgers. We are certain to sign another keeper in the window though.

    There’s strong evidence when you look at other similar votes and no matter what variation of vote happens, the club benefits always come through. To say that isn’t a strong evidence indicator is simply not correct. I have absolutely no fear of adding it. Not because it might win but because I have no issue with going with the will of the majority. Clearly a select few do on here but I will always go with a majority vote. Big difference between what I think will happen, what I hope will happen and my opinion on if this option did win. I know you think it’s good to save for the future. My opinion is, it’s better to spend now in the hope that our income streams are stronger in the future. We save up over the next 6-8 years and that money is the difference between as being a Championship club or an SP club, it’ll cost us way more than we could ever save. Like I say, that’s just my opinion vs yours. Neither one is right or wrong, just opinions.
