    Welcome Alfie Jones

    Sorry Dibb's I stand corrected!! But McGinn did still mess up a la Baird which was actually the point I wanted to make, he just got away with it.

    Welcome Alfie Jones

    Nearly right …….. I agree about the horrible pass but it was from Captain McGinn who also lost a ball doing a similar thing to Baird in the second half, fortunately they never scored from that mistake though!!

    Whether it is or isn't separate revenue is irrelevant there would be no "tax-free" benefit, that said you've almost covered it in the first line of your answer. The only way not to pay tax on it is to have no profit from it which is what would happen if it was spent on wages/fees etc.

    In fairness to Baz Oaky, as long as we spend all the money raised then there is no actual "tax" to be paid on it, it would only be if it was retained as profit (or unspent).

    In the circumstances of the subject matter that was quite good for you!!

    Baring in mind Baz that this is a Ltd Company we are talking about and this is additional revenue, how much of it would be tax-free??

    Thank God it's not Jack Baird that anyone's talking down, that'd cause real trouble !!

    I'm exactly the same Baz, however it doesn't mean that from time to time I won't agree with something they do or say and I'll say it. The almost evangelical way you defend everything and all that they do, arguing with everyone that disagrees with you, actually diminishes the strength of your arguments at times. That said I believe that for the most part you are well intentioned (not that you should give any sort of shite about what I think, you are entitled to your opinion as much as anyone else!!).

    What has that got to do with me or my thoughts?? You may or may not have noticed I told LPM I thought he was at it over the shirt sponsorship the other day. You may well be right in what you say about LPM and his motives however your behaviour is almost identical, just from the other side of the fence!!

    I happen to think that in the main GLS and SMiSA are doing a grand job......what are you going on about "kicking a man when he is down", in what way is GLS down (your words and nobody elses!!)?

    Not disagreeing with what you say or the club consider. That said GLS said, giving an example that is exactly the same as what is happening just now, that the fans would have their say and that it wouldn't be in his best interests to go against their wishes. To the best of my knowledge that hasn't happened. On balance I'm probably more for than against giving them more seats (from a financial viewpoint only) however I can understand people feeling aggrieved about the arrangements for these games and that they don't feel that their thoughts or concerns are being heard or taken into consideration. Making statements like GLS did and not following through on them give plenty of ammunition for criticism in situations like this!!

    I'm not one to be shy on calling out LPM when he's "at it" and neither am I saying I'm for or against away supporters being in the family stand however this is from an interview GLS gave to the Herald in June 2016 purely for balance:- "You look at the Rangers game [at the end of the season when St Mirren gave an additional stand to the Ibrox support]. The right thing would have been to go to the fans and say “we can make X amount of money but we’ll need to move a group of fans, what do you think?” and let them have their say. It would never be in my interest to go against the fans’ wishes. Things like league reconstruction or going back to the Rangers situation in 2012 – these are the things that supporters will get to vote on. And unless I felt it was an option that would put the club in peril I would go with what the fans want. That is the whole ethos of this.”
