Stuart Dickson Posted September 11, 2012 Report Share Posted September 11, 2012 Perhaps now that the deal has collapsed 10000Hours can truthfully explain to the supporters as to what stopped or who blocked the original social funding that would have made this takeover easier to manage from a supporters funding perspective. I'm sure many of us can guess what the reasons were and the logic behind it, but we never were told. I'm sure 10000Hours will resurface elsewhere given the experience they now have, but the model is best suited to a community sports environment rather than an existing professional football club. I totally and absolutely disagree with that statement Yflab and there are plenty of hugely successful clubs around that prove the point. It may have been too difficult a concept for some St Mirren fans to get their head around, and perhaps 10000hours didn't do a good job of helping with that issue, but at Motherwell, Clyde and Stenhousemuir similar structures are proving successful and popular - just as it is all over Germany, the USA and in Catalonia. All Scottish Football clubs should be working towards member ownership and all clubs should be looking to involve community organisations in their club because it makes absolutely sense in terms of shared resources, revenue streams, and volumes of purchase. 0 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
