    SMISA meeting 6/9/21

    Are you then happy for a non-SMiSA member to be successful ? To be a SMiSA representative on the board, surely one must already be a SMiSA member. It cannot be right that anyone who has not contributed to be considered for the position and is stupid to allow their application for the role.

    Definitely seems like a closed shop and a job for the boys sort of attitude. IMO regardless on your background if you have the right ideas for the club and the rest of the members back you then you have any right to go for it, shouldn’t be for those at the top to decide.

  3. Then you are easily pleased No point in membership and subscription if anyone can turn up and apply when it suits and be a SMiSA rep Really doubt it would happen though but should not be considered. Any candidate should be a SMiSA member to qualify and ideally prove their worth on the SMiSA board first

    Just prefer someone who has invested in the project so far and not some opportunistic individual

    Trust is earned. The last few months have been a monumental shambles, compounded by a lack of transparency. So trust in the board, and SMISA, is pretty low now. A lack of democracy in appointments leaves more than a whiff of a stitch up, with the likely appointment not being someone who will challenge the way things are being done.

    Maybe there is some Kibble employee who isnt a SMISA member interested?

    Its actually scary that not only have you typed that, you dont see anything wrong with it. Democracy in Britain may not be great, but at least at elections we have a few eejits to choose from, not just one.

  9. They clearly don’t trust us as paying members to make the right choice. But yet we’ve to trust them, the same board that’s had an absolute nightmare past 3/4 months. Ok.

    A democratic vote would mean more than one candidate being put forward, not a preferred candidate to be ratified. There should be criteria for eligibility, such as not having a dodgy criminal history, but otherwise anyone who is a member should be able to stand. Its called democracy.

  11. Why can't people be vetted, interviewed etc to be confirmed they are a suitable candidate? You're unbelievable.

    Just had an email from the SMISA committee, "welcoming" applications for a vacancy on the board for a SMISA rep. Now, as we are now fan owned, i thought we might have a bit of democracy, you know, anyone who fancies it puts their name forward, makes their pitch and then we all vote. Apparently not. The committee will interview applicants, settle on their preferred candidate and then put the annointed one before the fans for ratification. All seems perfectly above board and not corrupt in the slightest 😂

    For me it is very unrealistic to think the transition to fan ownership and new ways of working would be all sunshine & rainbows with no bumps on the way. To think some points of frustration which are mainly short-term or legacy issues has eroded five years + of trust in the fan buyout is OTT for me and I think we should be fully trusting these people, give them months/ years to make the club better not shoot them down in days/ weeks as some fans have done. But it's of course opinion. The lack of transparency is quite contentious as well, we've had several statements, updates from various parties, a feedback session, another on the way and opportunity for fans to give their concerns in writing. It's really now at the point for me, what more can they possibly do to satisfy these fans? If you think a better approach is just giving applicants and letting members decide, fine. I think it is reasonable to trust the people appointed to take our club forward. They will ultimately live or die at SMFC based on their performance.

  19. Maybe if I battered Bazil and was stuck in the Kibble I could go for election?

    Do you really think a more sensible approach would be just for applicants to be presented to members & decision made? Surely there is merit in the directors saying ‘based on a stringent recruitment process, this person is best placed’ See no issue with that at all but that’s a matter of trust in the people at the club. Maybe we should do the same for managerial recruitment…

    It’s more scary to me that you don’t seem to have a shred of trust in the SMISA representatives making the right choice in picking who’s best for the role through an interview process & you actually think we’d collectively be better placed to make that call with FAR less information on applicants.

  25. Always a competitive game so avoiding injury, avoiding a sending off and a narrow one goal win would go down well,

  26. No problem at all, sailed in, no queue, filled up, a bit costly but hey ho, no option. That should do me for the next 3 weeks. 👍

  27. I remember Ian as being a good full back. I think he also played golf down at Erskine and may well have played for their club team, certainly I remember bumping into him on the golf course at some point!

  28. We really should be looking to win this, Livingstone have only scored 3 goals in 7 games, albeit they miraculously beat Celtic 1-0. That the last two games we've played pretty decent and scored 5 goals into the bargain. I don't usually say this but 0-2 for me, a generous 12/1.
