    AGM being held via Zoom

    I must admit that the AGM being held on Zoom is a huge disappointment. Obviously this means that there will be much less debate and meaningful dialogue than if it were held at a public gathering. Smisa have requested that questions be submitted in advance of the AGM - that indicates that it will be more of a simple Q&A than a proper AGM. There is no reason for , say, 60 or 70 shareholders not to gather, bearing in mind that the current guidelines about gatherings say that the limit is "up to 200 people at indoor seated events" Furthermore, latest reports claim that "These limits will now be removed from Monday 17 January." It begs the question: Does the Smisa board, the Smisa reps on the Club's board and the Kibble directors wish to avoid being held to account? That is the whole point of an AGM and the four shareholders to whom I've spoken to today tell me that it is unacceptable to them. They are all deeply unhappy. I've been told that the Smisa board as well as the Smisa reps on the Club's board read social media so will someone inform us why they are avoiding a traditional AGM in the presence of the shareholders? Why is our AGM being conducted via Zoom when, according to the guidelines, there is absolutely no need ? I wonder - is there something to be concerned about?

    AGM being held via Zoom

    Since Fibble arrived our AGMs have slipped from November to December to January. Last year’s was by Zoom because it was necessary. This year it is not. Were I a shareholder I’d ask why other teams have held AGMs during the pandemic, indoors and outdoors. The 1877 club’s windows, high ceilings, two doors into the main stand, another into the corridor and entrance doors (opening on four sides) make it quite possible to hold the AGM safely. Packed corporate hospitality continued during covid, with more people and less ventilation. The AGM could even be held outdoors in the main stand. Teams bigger than ours do this annually. Why were shareholders not asked if they liked the idea? The apathy created is why the board/Fibblefeel they can get away with a Zoom AGM that allows them to pick and control questions, give short answers and move on quickly before things hot up reducing an important AGM to a tightly controlled Q&A session. Fibble directors are avoiding the people they are supposed to represent. Think on that. They have never faced shareholders who have saved St Mirrentwice in the past. They are suffocating real debate and treating real St Mirren supporters with contempt.They should hang their heads in shame. We all know home support is on the slide. Fibble’s profile is so low it is all but underground. After the ‘contracts to friends scandalof summer, the unfinished training ground fiasco, the first Fibble General Manager, their report of the club to the Revenue, their jump to attack the Chairman by press release unknown to their fellow directors after a mysterious ‘Rangers fan’ (there is one on our board) revealed his ill-advised comments is hardly surprising. Fibble have brought nothing to our club except to disillusion the few remaining staff in a club now disjointed by warfare in the boardroom that is an open secret. No wonder they chose Zoom. Watch it all happen without a squeak.

    The peak was on the 29th December as I stated last week you fool. Its all there on the dashboard https://coronavirus.data.gov.uk It peaked on the 29th December for all 4 home nations - the exact same date that it peaked last year for all 4 home nations. Last year we went on to have a lockdown that last months - after the peak. Indeed, all 3 lockdowns have come after a peak of infections. The falling from the peak - at the same rate as the previous falls - will highlight that the lockdowns were all for nothing. All they achieved was thousands of collateral deaths and livelihoods ruined. At least @bazil85 got to signal his virtue and wear his mask

  17. Like yourself, I am no good at reading these things. Hopefully someone on here or elsewhere ( preferably someone with an accounting background !!) will give us a reasonably accurate layman’s assessment of the figures . Exceptional year , so don’t think it will give a true picture of how the club is being run financially overall.

  22. Correct me If I am wrong but on the 27th January the St Mirren Football Club AGM will be held. SMISA are shareholders of the club and may well hold their own AGM.

    Maybe it's simply because most meetings nowadays, involving substantial numbers, are conducted through Zoom/Teams.

    AGM being held via Zoom

    Are non shareholders not allowed an opinion on the running of the club? This site would quickly suffocate if only shareholders were allowed to post on the subject of, for example, an AGM. We are all Saints fans and one could argue that, technically, Animal - as well as the rest of us - are all shareholders, seeing as we are a fan owned club. He raises serious concerns - such as the Kibble directors NEVER having faced the supporters - so may I respectfully suggest you add your thoughts on the subject matter i.e. why is a proper AGM not being held. My view is that there is something untoward when the shareholders are not being allowed to question the directors face to face. That is more important a question than whether or not any individual fan is a shareholder, don't you think?

  36. This looks like the late 19th / early 20th century - Causeyside Street, - I think this must have been taken looking south. The reason it's in colour is due to the fashion at the time of taking a black and white photo ('cause that's all they could take) and then painting over it with stylised colour.

  37. A £45,191 loss before government grants and gain on investments. That's not bad, though of course the credit goes to the previous administration. I'm not great at reading accounts, I know the difference between gross and net and that brackets are negative, but that's about it. However it seems that we actually made a profit of £449,393. That actually seems quite good, or am I being thick?

    Coronavirus

    Not quite sure which bit you're referring to? Anyhow, to clarify the marked difference in restrictions in England and Scotland have shown the reveres that many had hoped. Scotland has 297 people per 100,000 conformed cases with England, still having much less restrictions sitting at 264. The worst case scenario for everyone is deaths, with England sitting on a 7 day average of 164, that's .0003%, whereas Scotland has a 7 day average of 11, .0002%, hardly striking and, staying with the real numbers very low for both countries. All in all, the sooner Scotland realises the current restrictions are having little/no effect the better for everyone, and get people back to a normal life.

    We never seem to do well in deals for our best players. Out with McGrath we have lost talent like McGinn, McLean, Mallon, McGennis and Morgan all for less than a million quid collectively. Now thankfully the board at the time inserted a sell on for John M but the rest have left for really poor fees. We obviously didn’t get told how much hibs paid for Kyle but it won’t have been much. It frustrates me when I see other clubs getting really good money for their best top talent

  46. After last season, safety long before the "cut off" and two semi finals this season, unless things change dramatically, will certainly be "back to normal". Scrambling around for points, hoping other teams lose, that's already happening, and generally watching poor quality football. Like you I'm already seeing safety as success, which certainly isn't what I'd hoped for at the start of the season. As for the cup, well, it's barely a pastime which has little real interest as, barring miracles, could be games we could do without. Unlike you I DON'T see this as a decent season I'm afraid. If this is seen as decent we've lost the hope/momentum we had last season and it'll probably not be long, if we have little ambition, before we're back in the lower league.
