    If Kibble wasn't giving Gordon £300K then SMiSA would be.
    The only real tangible benefits I see Gordon getting out of this is;
    1) He is getting his money earlier than he thought
    2) He's shifting the 8% of shares he'd have been left with in the original proposal
    The shares he is selling to the Kibble are not an asset of the company, they are an asset of Gordon Scott.
    The assets that Kibble are getting access to WILL benefit them, but they WILL also benefit St.Mirren Football Club.

    I don't think £300K is a huge investment for a company with a £30m annual turnover. They spent £3m building a go-kart track for example.
    Kibble get to utilise the infrastructure and brand of the football club and it's reach into the community to benefit the young people it is looking after.
    I'm sure that must be saving them some money along the way as well as improving the experiences they can provide those kids with.

    Have you never given it thought that in the time of building a business, you see room for improvement or alternative ways of generating additional income in that period of time? There is always room for change for the better.
    Buy the buds is 4 years in and within that time, like any business I am sure there have been may learning curves, just like GS when he took the chairmans role has learned a far deal greater than he did before about the running of a football club.
    The club will STILL be fan owned regardless if the Kibble proposal is approved or not. Kibble are not here to take over, they are here to help generate extra revenue whilst boosting their own profile. As you are very aware, SMISA itself is run by many volunteers who already have full-time jobs elsewhere and dedicate a large chunk of their time to the association. Something I think that at times, these people get very little credit for. 
    I know I am explaining points that you already know and will result in a negative reply, as you have nothing positive to say about either SMISA, Kibble, GS or St. Mirren Football Club in general.

    There's some people on here who really need arithmetic lessons and some instruction on how percentages work. "Kibble are getting 27% and taking over". Clearly, far from being a recent problem, numeracy standards have been falling for many years in Scotland.

    Let’s not forget that Kibble are also saving SMiSA members £300K, an average of £250 a head.
    We probably also shouldn’t overlook the fact that as 51% shareholders, SMiSA will have the majority shareholding of the football club, and thus the football club will be, by definition, “fan owned”. By the end of next year.
    And its maybe worthwhile remembering that we get the benefit of the expertise and infrastructure of a 140 year old organisation who have a turnover 10 times the size of the club, working with us.
    And we get all of this, with a partner who is not driven by profit, but rather one that exists to help young people develop and prosper.
    Blind? Blinded by a personal grudge with the chairman I’d say.

    Maybes he thought it has been settled, we were not letting him go - then the tantrum about not trying a leg and sitting in the reserves on decent money came into play...
    Maybes the initial approach was not to JG . . .

    Can't remember where I read it last night but he is going straight into their under 23 squad and good performances might see him progress to the first team. He had been identified as a prospect. It would also make sense to me that if a club is looking to bring in younger players to do so for 6 months before commiting to a purchase particularly if they are not playing regular first team football.

    Possibly the club don't want to disclose that publicly, as there is a possibility he may be back and they don't want the player to feel like he doesn't have a future with us.

    I'm looking forward to seeing Obika's final goal tally come the end of the season. Hopefully it'll silence the critics and they'll have to turn their attention on to the next victim.

    It’s relevant in the sense that no one else is putting the ball in the net for us. Obika gets hounded yet he’s the only one who has some idea of how to grab a goal.
    Goals Scored - Obika is 13th in the league. Those above him are:
    Green Bigots x3 (Eduoard, Christie, Forrest)
    Zombies x3 (Morelos, Kent, Defoe)
    That leaves: Cosgrave (11), Dykes, Doidge (8), Lawless, Stewart (7) and Donnelly (6).
    Hamilton, Hearts, Kilmarnock and St Johnstone (1/3 of the league) don’t have a player who has hit 5 league goals yet this season.

    Jim Goodwin had a well paid part time job alongside the Alloa one, so he wasn’t really going to be much better off financially joining us.
    McInnes already had bigger jobs than Aberdeen and struggled. And as stated above, rejecting those jobs hasn’t done him any favours, Dons fans are now trying to hound him out after all the decent seasons he’s given them. Archibald (again mentioned above) is a great example - in the space of 12 months his stock plummeted.
    If Jack had guided us to 8th we’d have been delighted. However, that wouldn’t have landed him any sort of decent move to England, never mind one upping his salary by 5 times. In football when a move like this comes they have to take it. Think of Kyle McAllister - the guy barely gets on the pitch now. The offer from Derby came, he had to take it. If he didn’t, and he was suffering the same problems he has now, he would never have the chance to move to a club like Derby again.
    The only way clubs like Sunderland would have remained interested in Jack would have been if he landed a place in the Top 6, won one of the cups, or had a regular habit of taking points from Celtic or Sevco. With the overhaul in squad we needed, that was never going to happen.

    I understand concerns that Kibble are a bigger organisation than Saints and that they might be able to exercise more influence than the 27.5% stake they will hold, it's a valid point and one that SMiSA will I'm sure be aware of now that you've pointed it out, however we were always going to reach "the endgame" when the post-GLS situation had to be sorted. I think overall this seems like a good deal
    it still leaves SMiSA with overall control of the club (51%) saves the ordinary SMiSA punter some money (I said at the time £7.66 was an overvaluation for shares that had remaned unsold for 7 years).. gets it all over sooner.

    Everyone is free to terminate their membership at any time as far as I am aware?
    I'd be very hopeful that the reverse is true. More St.Mirren supporters should be looking to join the trust now that they know fan ownership is now just 2 years away rather than 7.
    Assuming SMiSA membership drops from £12 a month to say £5 a month (just an example) from the end of 2021 instead of 2026 all those SMiSA members will save themselves £420. They will be furious!

    The LPM breakdown here is hilarious. For years he’s been holding onto the only thing he can regarding the success of BTB & that’s the votes going against community benefit options. He’s had to endure a man he hates observably further the team he ‘supports’ on and off the park in every single year of his stewardship, with this being his only thread to desperately cling to. 
    now the club is linking up with a charity organisation that will really drive home the links between SMFC & our community. On top of that the fans remain majority owners & all signs point to increased revenue streams & raised profile. 
     
    He has absolutely nothing left in his quest to desperately try and discredit GLS so has went on a rambling mess, that a charity will somehow benefit from asset stripping one of the pillars of their community 😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂
