    The current BOD are tired, they want out. Well why don't they step down then? All they want is their pay off, why else have they been snapping up shares left right and centre? Here is the real alternative. Do not support the CIC, have a fresh BOD's voted in. Build the members bar and continue to run a tight ship at St Mirren Football Club.

    We all know football fans can and will be extremely sick and twisted with their humour. Indeed, many revel in this as it proves they'll do anything to support the team to the extent of disturbing the opposition so much. Or just plain winding up the opposition fans. So here's a few from over the years. Let me state right now: yes I have - shamefully - chanted some of these, however I don't think I'm alone in this one. 1. (Tom Hark tune) - Tommy Burns, so does Doyle. Sung to Sellik fans after the Johnny D was electrocuted. It somewhat annoyed them. 2. Michael Fagan caught VD. Sung to Blue Bigots. The bloke in question broke in to Buck House and sat on the edge of Lizzy's bed before being huckled. It started off that he had shagged Her Maj then mutated from there. 3. (I'm H A P P Y tune) - You're HIV HA HA! Sung to any fans from Edinburgh in the late 80s/early 90s as Auld Reekie was the AIDS capital of Europe. 4. You're gaunnae die of AIDS - see number 3. 5. SSSSSSSSS- chanted to Dungfermline fans circa 1996. Norrie McCathie had just died from carbon monoxide poisoning. I haven't a clue what it meant....

    Felt this deserved it's own thread. I have moved the above quote from the Provan Sports thread We all know what Stuart Gilmour did to save the club from oblivion. I would like to think the same man would not be selling the club in a position of debt to the club. Gilmour has publicly said that the club would only be sold to the right people. Call me naive but I have faith in Stuart Gilmour when it comes the future of the club. Though maybe not his choice of manager However you have a valid point wanting to know some facts on the buy out. I''m a bit surprised share holders are not asking more questions on the take over. Or at least the potential new owners don't come out and tell us plans and hopes for a bright new future for St Mirren football club. Gordon Scott came onto this forum and said he would give us his side of the story as to why he stepped down from the board. I have no idea of the in's and out's but from the outside looking in this man looked like the real deal. A link with the fans to the board room during the building of the stadium. Gordon Scott impressed me and I would like to know his own thoughts as a major share holder of the club.

    Your alternative option to the CIC

    In the space of his last two posts, 'somner9' has put the boot into the existing board, the club's commercial manager, Richard Atkinson, and the 'Kibble man'. I suspect if Bill Gates suddenly decided to become a Buddie, and pumped ten zillion into the club, somner9 would kick him in the nuts because Windows XP was a load of shite.

    If I was Gordon Scott in particular I would feel hard done by too. I think the forming of the consortium to ring fence their 52% was divisive, and I'd be hacked off if I had been investing in the club to a high level in the manner that some of the '48%' people had too. If 'Glasgow Buddie' has been investing in the club as you say, and has been frozen out, then I absolutely am on his side. With the CIC guaranteeing the '48%' representation in the new structure - perhaps someone like 'Glasgow Buddie' could put himself forward for election, and be able to 'come in from the cold' so to speak?

    The Club Buy Out - 10000 Hours

    its all about risk and there is a risk that members will lose interest,drop out, not renew and the finance may not be there to sustain the CIC, e.g. 2 businesses sign up for year 1 but drop out after year 1 and no others take their place - entirely possible? resonable to ask what are optioins in this scenario. A new payment plan to extend debt may result in no extra investment ever in the football side of the model i would like to know about this

    I see we're onto the subject of attacking Homosexuals now? This thread is getting worse day by day. First of all we had attacks on Churches holding their Services or other events at St. Mirren Park. Next up was attacks on people’s Religious beliefs. Then we had various comments about Muslims and their “Carpet Bowling Teams” (if they really exist). The mind boggles as to why those posts get Green Dots and I get flooded with Red Dots. Now we have the even easier target – Homosexuals and Civil Partnerships (or Gay Weddings as some folks like to call them). When is this thread going to be put to rest or are the powers that be going to let this thread run and run and run until some Journalist picks up on it and goes to print how FARE and UEFA should be looking into the behaviour of the supporters of St. Mirren Football Club? Red Dots for this?!!! Whal, some folks need to get a Life!

    The Club Buy Out - 10000 Hours

    The quote you use to open this thread is pretty loaded. The questions might be reasonable enough, but the tone in which they are delivered and the pejorative language and reference to the bold Reg aren't helpful. I think we can anticipate some formal communication from the club in terms of a number of these questions over the course of the next 2 - 3 weeks. I'm pretty sceptical, it has to be said, but I think we should reserve judgement until we've heard what Atkinson and any other relevant parties have to say. When I say I'm sceptical, I'm not thinking so much about the motives of the people involved, more about what impact any changes might have, and the extent to which we've all become a bit weary of hearing people talking the talk, but failing to deliver where it really counts - I'm thinking of our manager here, and the 'new direction' our Chairman spoke about when MacPherson was bagged. It is difficult to be anything other than sceptical. I'll not lapse into cynicism just yet, though. Let's hear what Atkinson and colleague have to say before branding the guys as shysters

    I think the guy made a very balanced post. The "ideas bank" generated by the CIC debate has been terriffic.....but not something that couldn't have been done if a consultant had been brought in to look at furthering commercial opportunities.

    Drag your moany @rse along tonight and ask the question in person or can't you wait a couple of hours. Club and CIC are two separate entities - perhaps if you are more specific in what you think might happen?

    If I'm picking this up wrongly, please accept my apologies. I'm reading from your post that the club could themselves have done / be doing a lot of the things that the CIC are proposing - in regard to greatly increasing club revenue, use of facilities, marketing the club etc. Basically the stuff the CIC are confident they can deliver to increase revenue. Who in the club would do it? With all due respect, it took a a ginger fud and his three hombres to even make the club realise that a book about a 115 year old stadium might be a good idea, so who in there at present would do the stuff the CIC will do?

    How much is Craig Whyte set to pay for r*ngers? £6m to David Murray + £20+m to Lloyds Bank + £10m into the player budget for the summer and with the HMRC case pending which could see r*ngers asked to pay anywhere between £20m - 60m if they lose the case. £2m to buy 52% of a debt free St Mirren in the SPL... bargain!

    Eddy, I don't want to appear to be talking down to you, but that question was answered about 60 pages ago at least.

    Pardon me for not trawling through 82 pages of what was pretty boring and repetitive the first time. You can have my last red dot tonight, for 'appearing not to talk down to me' whilst 'appearing' to be a patronising tit.

    Your alternative option to the CIC

    Simple thread. No arguing, no shouting each other down. If you aren't supportive of the CIC plan, and would like to see it kicked into touch, what viable alternative would you support?

    I don't think that would work. I wouldn't want to waste a penny of my share on a football club....
