It gets worse in 1995 with outstanding debt of £3.2M. I’ve not checked all the available accounts so maybe there is a worse year. When the Gilmour led consortium sold to @GLS and SMISA the picture was as follows: Now I’m no fan of every decision that @SGG and his consortium made but by fcuk they saved our club from administration and possibly liquidation. Gilmour and his consortium are far more important to the history of our club than Shuggie Murray’s goal at Forthbank or Fitzpatrick’s success as the formal club captain lifting the Scottish Cup in 1987. 17 hours ago, Jockmd said: He only saved the bloody club! https://www.theguardian.com/football/2009/sep/07/st-mirren-shares-sale-scottish-premier-league I openly acknowledged his important intervention at the beginning of my post. We are in a totally different situation now and don't require the biscuit tin mentality that was needed then. Horses for courses. He could have destroyed all he worked for toward the end of his tenure because he was "tired" of the association. He should not be involved now in the same way others who also put their money where their mouths were at the time. 2 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
