Lots of Arabs seem to have got tickets for the family stand tomorrow

Why buy there rather than main stand where in all likelihood they would have been fine ?

They will want to be seen as if they have taken over the ground

Why did the ‘system’ even allow it to happen?

That’s the real question

The real question is whether it actually happened at all.

I do think we need to calm down a bit here.

We've got enough mud to throw at the board without making some of it up.

All you need to do to buy tickets online is create an account. I had to set up a new one when I couldn't get into my old account and the forgot my password link didn't work.

Intresting wee video here about a club, whose fans decided to take the club into community ownership, and give the members of that community a real say, and involvement in how the club is run.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p078qllg

and proof that the fans are consulted!

now if only Smisa could do the same, and our chairman not lie about being up for it.

I think you'll find the club chairman has already doubled down on his lie.

I think you’ll find he hasn’t lied nor has he given any indication that the deal won’t change if our ticket sales reflect a need for it.

His April update was clear that it would be reviewed if our home crowds go up. 

We all know you hate SMISA & GLS so take any opportunity to have a swipe at them, even to the extent you make up a claim GLS is lying.

Best to ignore him. He talks about roasters yet it’s he who should be sponsored by Aunt Bessie .🥔

JUST YOU WAIT and when we discover that GLS has bankrupted us (as LPM has asserted) and when he goes back on his word and does not let Saints fan's have seats because GLS wants more OF bums on seats - LPM will be proved right..

They say that there is always a 1st time for everything - but I am not sure the everything applies in this case . . .

So the clubs business plans relies on the hope of NOT selling all the season tickets for the Main and West stand ,otherwise they cannot reseat the South stand season ticket holders.

That's ridiculous right?

Oh dear club & smisa been found out again shutting down this debate, and getting posts deleted on the SMFC fans page on facebook.

seems the chairman doesn't like being reminded he promised he would consult smisa members first before considering giving the bigots two stands and kicking kids and families out. And smisa dont want it flagged up they did nothing to make the chairman stick to his word.

There is nothing in the statement that suggests this. His update in April was very clear that if ticket sales reflected it, it would be reassessed.

A misguided comment from an interview years ago and you still can’t let it go. Imagine everyone pulled you up on your incorrect comments on here, there would be no room for anything else. 

Whether you like it or not, it’s still GLS call. Don’t worry though BTB is way ahead of schedule and won’t be stopped. won’t be long until the deal completes and we get the club, then you can moan some more at their choices. :clapping

It was not a misguided comment. GLS used the issue about the Family Stand and the OF as part of his BtB campaign implying that a vote/debate would take place before any decision was made. As prior to taking over the old board had moved Family Stand ST holders to accommodate Sevco without consultation.

Yep and he was wrong to say that as evident once he took over the club, changed that view. Sure if he could go back he would do it differently. 

Everyone makes mistakes, says more about a person not being willing to let it go.

Absolutely correct, it was something he offered up totally unsolicited by the smisa board. Now a bit like Boris and the £350m red bus he'd much rather hear it beeping as its backed into the garage.

Its shameful really to promise children and families who are the club's lifeblood something, then pull it away.

How can it be reassessed, he has made the statement just as we start selling season tickets,he's made his mind up regardless of how many season tickets we sell

How can it not? Killie cancelled their arrangement with a fortnight notice. I personally think it’s wishful thinking we’ll come close to that number of season ticket holders but if we did, it could very easily be reassessed. 

Again he’s clearly said this in his April update it would be. He’s not said anything to suggest that’s now completely off the table. Fans reading deeper into a single sentence than they need to for meaning.

It was an interview for the Herald in 2016 ffs. Wasn’t even an official stance, statement or promise. 

‘The right thing would have been to go to fans and say we can make X amount of money, what do you think’ 

there was no set in stone promise, no official announcement. Again it says much more about you as a person being unable to let go of a misjudged, off the cuff comment from three years ago.
