  1. Ah fair enough. Thought we’d managed to break the Sinclair Street gate as well.
  2. What was the deal at the end with exiting via the WDE? Also these turnstiles have been fucked for weeks, need sorted before the next home game.
  3. Fifteen hundred pounds a week, and the rest. Match made in heaven.
  4. Not a fan of any of those designs. I’d have been fine just keeping the current one, but obviously there’s money to be made (from the few people that’ll actually buy them)
  5. I couldn’t believe this, “Brian who?” as well Great wee bit of content.
  6. Aye, agree on that. I wonder how much Inverclyde’s socio-economic state factors in here as well. We’ll face many of the same challenges as other clubs, but probably always slightly worse.
  7. Agreed, it’s a really well put together bit of work. Interesting that just 6% of the support is 20 or under (though you’d assume much of that’s down to fewer of them taking the time to fill out the survey) Probably isn’t too far off the actual %, we’ve got an ageing fanbase and converting young people into supporters over the last 20 years has been a real issue.
  8. Half 2 two days before Christmas, you’ve got to respect it in a way.
  9. Can understand a survey for general merchandise ideas and to ask fans which bits of shite they’d like to see produced, but to identify we need to do anything!? I’m honestly baffled at it and that line on Twitter about the hoops to jump through. It’s straight out the Rae playbook, and even they occasionally managed to sell nonsense at Christmas.
  10. Not that it’d be met with much enthusiasm, but there hasn’t been a single mention of our Scottish Cup game on Tuesday or how to obtain tickets for it.
  11. “Presumably” being the key word there. There’s been zero effort to communicate that, or respond when asked to communicate that. Releasing statements about any old shit is needless and should be avoided, but something like that (under fan ownership especially) required a bit of clarity.
  12. Wouldn’t say I’m one of them, but I’d have no issue with any supporter still uneasy about the whole thing.
  13. Yeah I’m not impressed with that at all. At the very least, some sort of blanket statement about Lithgow (which would look ridiculous this late on but hey ho) would’ve helped. Avoiding questions about it entirely is a dreadful look.
  14. Comparing an audio glitch on a fan podcast with the thousands of pounds spunked up the wall on a gubbins football manager, that is currently steering us towards relegation, is certainly something.
  15. Fair play for getting that together, and it’s nice to have faces to questions, but it’s hard to come out of that feeling anything but worried. Not expecting miracles overnight and for us to suddenly start behaving like a completely competent football club, but the basics in stuff like hospitality, marketing, social media, web content, advertising etc I thought we’d have nailed down early doors (and really needed to) we just don’t. A couple of those are made more difficult by the team’s performance of course, but I’m struggling to see any kind of progress and we’re about to hit November.
  16. There was a plan for those 4 league matches?
  17. Pleased to see some sort of statement with regards to the Lithgow thing, not pleased to see it on the MCT account which has 20x less reach than the club’s. Feels like the’re just trying to sweep it away.
  18. Thomas ‘Tam’ O’Ware leaving Partick Thistle. Real shame it never quite worked out…
  19. Made this point before, but I’ll do it again. I don’t see why any of the legal details should be holding up us completely revamping our socials/website output, and actually marketing. There’s been little things we’ve done better, but none of it feels joined up.
  20. I (believe) he’s the one that’s the spitting image of Harold Shipman. There may be method to the madness.
  21. Agree with much of what’s been said previously, won’t repeat it foo much. It’s very early days and I’m still reasonably confident things will improve, but it’s not a great start in terms of comms is it? We had the swanky video for the season ticket launch - but what have we actually done to drive that since? I can’t think of anything across the limited channels we use. I’m honestly baffled as of to how we’d come into this with basically nothing? There’s the #NothingWithoutYou hashtag, but the fuck does that even mean? We’ve not posted anything with it since the 9th of June. Transfer of ownership issues should’ve had no impact on a campaign that should’ve been planned our months ago - and I don’t understand why our socials output at such a critical time for selling kits/STs/hospitality/advertising/MCT membership is still as limited. Few things in the takeover are going to be done with the flick of a switch, but that really needed to be one of them. Again, early days -not hanging them out to dry or anything but we needed to hit the ground running in regards to our marketing and comms and just haven’t.
  22. See as a backroom appointment, you could make a lot worse. Bizarre stuff though.
  23. People will watch these cloggers and still somehow find a way to advocate bringing Duffy back.
  24. Frank Ross wins promotion to the Dutch too flight with GA Eagles.
