    Well since this thread has just ended up with folk abusing each other I'll close it. It's been fun!

    I think the outcome is challenging for all parties. No matter how we look at it, all are investing greatly in something that is at the heart of all of us, St Mirren. I sincerely hope that Kibble help to grow the business, because in a few years, we, the fans will own 51% of the club. Many forgot that 51% is ownership, 70% was just a bigger number All this chat of GLS being a Simsa member and not allowed to sell his personal shares to benefit himself, having ensured that the fans have 51% is just pettiness. So he offloaded 8% so what! i am part of the minority’s of private shareholders. I bought some years ago just to be a part of the club. It was an ambition since boyhood. Remember those days you trawled the PDS looking for a small add selling st mirren shares. I then invested further when we had to get an all seater stadium. I would remind those sanctimonious members out there who think about fan ownership, most of the past share offerings were not taken up by grass root fans and had to be underwritten by people like Gordon, Stewart, George,. The final seats to make old love street an approved all seater stadium were bought by Jim Purvis. I doubt I will ever get the opportunity to sell those shares like GLS so what. It was a from the heart investment. GSL has a far higher value and I have no issue with him being able to offload them. the veto has taken on mammoth proportions but I would question its actual worth. The issues you can veto go to the fundamentals of the club. Day to day business is unlikely to be vetoed. If there is something that Kibble actually want to veto, as a fan shareholder I would have serious questions about what was going on that makes them take such a stand my only question, and it is something that has annoyed me for many years. In the bad time, 3 games postponed in winter, no income and the old shareholders had to give loans to aid cash flow, I have always worried how fan ownership handled that. Recently I have heard talk of a contingency fund. Is it only the major shareholder that needs to have that or will kibble equally have some cash to help us through tough cash flow times.. let us look at the German model 50%+1 is fan ownership and you run the club that is where we will be shortly As I type I think of brexit at end of it, all need to pull together in reading the pros and cons over past few weeks, I have seen some personal axes to grind, but at the end of the day we are all fans and want the best for our coub juat think what COYS means to each of us that is what is in our hearts

    Kibble/SMiSA Partnership Proposal (Merged)

    Glad that's over. Surely the petulant whining will stop now. I was so unsure of how to vote, I didn't vote until 11.00 this morning. In the end I voted "No", as I wasn't satisfied with the answer to my questions by e-mail. I like a lot about the deal, but there were a couple of uncertainties that I just wasn't sure about. I'm neither happy nor unhappy as to the outcome, as I believe either outcome came with risks. I'll continue to pay my money and get behind the club. After all, for St.Mirren to flourish we need this deal to work. I think someone has just teetered over the brink...…………………….💥😡

    I'm enjoying the fact that in the thread on our boxing day game, a few posters on here were slating Obika, and one or two (you know who you are) were saying he wouldn't hit double figures for goals this season. Yet here we are, still in February and he's on 11 (and should be 12 given his goal at Ross County was onside). Best way to prove the doubters wrong is to keep banging the goals in.

    I think now that the outcome is settled we need to get behind it. However, we need real strength of leadership from Smisa going into the new model. We need people with a wealth of experience to lead the club and to not allow SMFC to be dominated by Kibble. I’ve concerns that Smisa could have been overly influenced to date by GLS. Some may agree or disagree with that. I think we have a challenge to try and ensure that doesn’t happen with Kibble as a minority shareholder. I’m all for Kibble bringing business expertise to the table. In fact, one of my main concerns with fan ownership was that we may not have the people, skills and experience to operate effectively. If Kibble can help with that then great - but it’s supposed to be a fan owned club so Kibble can’t be allowed to dominate proceedings. If we have a fans rep acting as a bystander, in awe of £30m turnover partner who has a big voice, then what’s the point? We’d have been been better just allowing the club to be sold into private hands in that instance. A challenge for all involved. I hope it all goes well - and mostly to the benefit of SMFC.

    This feels like a big win. We have needed to start turning draws into wins so a goal with a few minutes to spare against 3rd in the league should give the team the belief. Delighted that two players that took some stick earlier in the season getting the goals

    Kibble/SMiSA Partnership Proposal (Merged)

    And fair play to you for that. The only thing that surely binds all of us is a desire to see the club be the best it can be on and off the park.

    For those of us, who don't live in the virtual world, being there is the whole point. £12 or £24, both recent games have been well worth the cash for the emotional roller coasters that they were. I released a few endorphins and experienced a fair bit of euphoria during these two games. Real life experience has got to be your first choice guys. Can't wait for Saturday and I'd recommend it to all you Matchday keyboard warriors who could go but just can't be arsed or grudge paying the cash. I appreciate some people Can't go but I wholly recommend the real thing if you can make it. It's a rare day oot and me and the other 600 buds who were actually there last night will never forget it. COYS. Give it a try. You know it makes sense.

    Much as i disagree with the outcome, I need to accept this decision. As previously expressed, I hope to be proved completely wrong in my fears and look forward to celebrating continued on and off field success and growth in the coming years. as a consequence of this vote.

    Is The Forum Deid?

    This thread is a great example of what has killed this forum. No normal person wants to spend their precious time wading through this type of nonsense on every thread and who can blame them. A handful of posters have systematically destroyed it over the last few years. Some might wonder if it was deliberate. If so, well done chaps. I think you've finally succeeded.

    Me Too - I'm part of the B&W Army

    For a number of reasons, such as using the name of a campaign formed about the sexual harassment and assault to encourage people to go to games, and mentioning people’s finances. People make decisions to go to games based on a number of reasons, not just financial or emotional. Who’s he to tell people to invest financially or emotionally? Who appointed him the superfan spokesperson? Above all, he just comes across as a pompous bellend in the post.

    By going to away league games, you actively invest finances in the opposition, allowing them to strengthen in their battle against us! That makes the stay away supporters better than you for St Mirren! [emoji23][emoji12]

    That's our problem. We can play 5 games, get 5 draws and feel smug we are undefeated. Accies or RC or Fakes play 5, lose 3 but shitfest two 1-0 wins giving them 6 points with their 3 defeats. We need to start winning games.

    Aye. There is a great delusion that somehow Black & White Army Forum represent the fans. When the number of posters used to be displayed at the bottom of the page there was usually only around 100 people logged on during a live match. On non-match days the number was significantly less - often in the teens. And this thread shows that only a few people actually get involved. There may be a lot of 'members' of the Forum but many are dead accounts and many simply no longer post or use the site to gain information and not get involved. Out of the many fans I know I am the only one that posts on here. Only one other has an account. Considering we have around 4,200 regularly attending games then this forum is very insignificant to gauge what the fans think.

    For pre match entertainment, maybe LPM can call the chairman a liar and for bazil85 to call him out on that Would 6-30 in the Court Bar on Sat night do ? I will hold the jackets (and the wallets) while leaning against the bar enjoying my pint I will buy the winner and loser a pint since I wouldn't care who won BuddieinEK can be 1st reserved if LPM cant make it

    Me Too - I'm part of the B&W Army

    If you want to see the problem with using the phrase Me Too for something trivial like this, this try running this idea past your grand-daughter Ricky - the one about to start university. I honestly don't know if this was an attempt at humour on your part but FFS man, have a word with yourself.

    Oh FFS GIVE IT A REST! SERIOUSLY! YOU NEED HELP! Our best result in ages, and you still manage to use your master baiting skills to turn a positive thread into a meaningless playground spat! You are all but ruining a whole forum with your petty squabbles. Can't you just STFU or take s vow of posting abstinence? You... The great champion of all things positive about St Mirren, have managed to make reading about our victory laboriously impossible! STOP IT!

    Great win tonight. Second half was so much better than the first - Hodson in particular much better. Durmus again was superb. Last month or so he's been much more positive in terms of running at players and winning the ball back high up the field. Really deserved that goal tonight. McCarthy was brilliant again too. Won pretty much everything second half. Looking forward to Saturday night's game!

    Welcome Jonathan Obika

    Yep I thought back then he’d finish on 10-15 for the season. Could that have been an underestimate.. wouldn’t it be great if he could do 15-20...? Just a question of how high he gets up that table that was posted earlier now. Worth noting that he signed too late to play in the league cup, where he surely would have added at least a few more. I remember Billy Mehmet scored loads of his goals in the league cup one year. 5 in 1 game against Dumbarton rings a bell. Jon is certainly capable of hitting Thompson/Higdon numbers for us. After his fantastic winning penalty at Fir Park last week I would give him penalty taking duty too (if we ever get another one). If he keeps playing this well I fear we will struggle to hold on to him in the summer. I bet Motherwell are going to be interested given his performances against them and they have cash to spend. Good problem to have I guess...

    The biggest myth in Scottish football is the daft notion that Celtic and Rangers are rivals. Rivals my arse. They are partners in crime, partners in the exploitation of sectarianism and partners in carving up the meagre spoils of Scottish football all to themselves. It will forever be thus. Accept it, or chuck it. It’s a simple choice in my opinion. My love for the Buddies and my memories of some of the best days of my life provided by them, trumps any frustration caused by the exploits of the OF.

    I think it is quite insulting to describe the 91.6% as 'gullible'. As with all major decisions in life - getting married, getting a new job, having children, buying a house, moving abroad, buying a car or a business arrangement - there are no accompanying 50 pages of cast iron guarantees in your favour covering any perceived eventuality you can dream up. You are attracted to an idea then you investigate and get as many answers as possible and from the correct sources (not a forum) then you go with your gut instinct and if it feels right you go ahead and try to make it work. Things do not always work out the way you would want however they may turn out better and the best thing you had ever done. Its about trusting in yourself and those that you enter into the agreement with. Because you do not get the 50 pages of guarantees that suit you does not mean you are gullible. It is an informed decision.

    I'll stand by my concerns of the erosion of fan ownership but if you go read the other thread, you'll find I believe Kibble don't need to be a shareholder for a partnership with St Mirren to flourish. If this deal is voted through, i sincerely hope it does flourish and quickly. Although there may be bumps in the road ahead, i hope they are just bumps & overcome easily. I hope, when BTB's is bought, the fans reasonable expectations of what their investment into BTB would bring are met. I bought into BTB because i supported the model that was presented to me. I have not yet been convinced by what has been presented so far.

    No its not. Its 20% over the original plan of 1000 members at 12 per month(possibly} , not 120%. The membership numbers as you originally stated are however not 20% over the original plan, never mind 120%. Either way your post that I've quoted is factually wrong. That, my friend. Is complete fact.
