A percentage of of the transfer fee or pro rata return to playing budget would be obvious examples.

Any business that invests in anything should consider return on investment, risks and benefits.


Name one investor in a Scottish football club who has successfully claimed a share of transfer fees as a conditional return on their investment. You’ve been watching too many episodes of Dragons’ Den hotshot.

MCT has no claim to any of the club’s transfer fees and only an absolute moron would think otherwise.

I'm not sure it could kill our club but it's certainly not helping our case. i don't really get what some of our posters are trying to achieve by lambasting Hopkin and our players,

I don't really get what you're trying to achieve by posting cretinous drivel on a regular basis, but here we are.

Lyon isn't close to being ready to make a successful move to an English league club and that's what the club should be telling him right now instead of trying to flog him to the first no-mark outfit that comes along.

Thanks Dave,at a time we need the money this will really help with the sponsors.

Now, instead of boasting about installing ice baths and a gym (which were planned before you arrived and insisted on by Hopkin anyway), go look at ways of increasing revenue and work on some sort of business strategy that includes covering comms chanels.

 

How much of this advice did you provide while preening the feathers (pun intended) of your useless big mate Hawke?

'Morton, below Partick Thistle on goal difference, occupy the relegation play-off berth and are not in a good place on or off the field. Supporters abusing staff, the club blocking trolls on social media and then inviting them to the stadium, stuff like this just adds to the club's problems.'

 

While the club's meltdown was stupid and pathetic in equal measure, the idea that it will have any sort of significant impact is laughable - not least given the critical issues at first team and boardroom level. The most likely outcome from Saturday's game after all was a defeat and full-blown shame game, which makes this episode look like a (completely unnecessary) storm in a tea cup. 

 

Crichton is just fucking thick and so couldn't think of anything substantial to say about Morton when pressed to 'analyse' the division.

Hey HikingTon, I'm not advocating anything in favour of Clydebank and am well aware that they have their own Scheme Goblin problem without having to adopt those of Glasgow's.

All I am saying is that they are one of Scotland's largest towns - similar in many respects to Greenock - and that if they didn't sell off Kilbowie when they did, they would have been still around today.

I do however love the small town chip-on-the-shoulder that many Greenockians have about the size of their town. All I said was Clydebank was one of Scotland's biggest towns - which it is - and then you get the howls of indignation. "Och naw, it isnae big toon, we were a big toon ower 50year ago" etc. East Kilbride doesn't have that same inferiority complex when it comes to Paisley for example. None of you are as big as Glasgow. GiFUYees. :D


i) Greater Greenock and The Famous aren’t even remotely similar to Clydebank and, erm, Clydebank (the list of largest urban areas on the same page demonstrates the full potential of the club’s local constituency)

ii) Glasgow may have a larger population but Greater Greenock still has the taller municipal building by one proud metre and always will.

Thanks for playing anyway.

He was still a director at the same time as his father was running up this debt, and did nothing to prevent it, so as the heir he therefore deserves to get smeared with a ball of that shite.


He absolutely does, but an alarmingly large section of the fanbase seem to think ‘Crawford is killing the club!!!1!!’ is a valid point, as if his beatified father wasn’t actually 99% responsible for the situation we’re in right now.

The only Rae responsible for this current mess is Douglas, who as a successful businessman as well as an octogenarian had more reason and time than just about anyone to plan for his succession and so knowingly bequeathed this mess for his inheritants to deal with. Crawford at this stage is just a powerless cipher obliged to head a shit football club instead of swanning around the golf course instead.

Just because people prefer to associate the predictably shit legacy of the Rae era with the current placeholder doesn’t mean that’s where the real blame lies.

Sounds like most businesses - the board are responsible to shareholders and will fulfill the wishes of shareholders.

 

And in this case the wish of the shareholders is to have a token placeholder chair a subsidiary company - a failing football club - on their behalf and on their terms. Which means that Crawford's ultimate authority here is next to none, grand plan or no grand plan. Given that the interests of the chinless wonder shareholders at GC aren't even remotely aligned with those of this once-proud football club, the onus must be on ending this shan subsidiary relationship as soon as feasibly possible rather than buying into any of the 'sustainability' bullshit that the chairman is obliged to sell to the fanbase right now.

He can’t as he’s played for two clubs this season


That’s never stopped us from signing players in the past.

NB: And let’s never forget that Crawford Rae is only chairman by the grace of the majority shareholding in GC, who are the ones actually calling the shots here to protect ‘their’ money. So even if Crawford were to find some great, grand plan in his back pocket after nearly twenty years of supervising incompetence, it wouldn’t matter because he is merely the front man for a family that is scunnered with running this football club altogether. That feeling is mutual.

How does Crawford Rae intend to have a break even wage structure and field a competent professional football team on the park at the same time? What you’re referring to is simply a managed death spiral through the seaside leagues under the guise of ‘sustainability’ - that is not a credible plan.
