  1. One of the BBC reporters said that - due to work on Hampden ahead of the Euros - the actual working capacity of Hampden on the day of the cup final was closer to 5000 than 52,000, which explains why - with social distancing - you get to 600.
  2. The irony of your use of dishonesty and obsession is not lost on me!
  3. Not to be rude, but you are clearly not capable of grasping this (for starters, the deal on the table is not 'secret option C' if we're sticking with that - that was Morton taking ownership of the stadium, and with no debt). You are so utterly blinkered by your view of me and my (entirely non-existent) relationship with GC that it is a complete waste of time for you, me and anyone reading. I'm sure you'll lash out with a "liar" or by plucking another fantasy from the air (I liked the one about me muddying the waters, or however you described it, on the feasibility study, this tax thing is a re
  4. If there's one thing I've learned over the last few posts it is that you don't quite grasp what constitutes an endorsement so I'll leave it there. There's a deal on the table that deserves more attention than your latest concocted drama.
  5. I presume their real life lawyers were advising them on those options before they were made public and put to a vote, no?
  6. What might be called the ‘ideal’/clean option of Morton taking ownership of the stadium. The day the Telegraph reported on the emergence of a second (secured debt) option this is what I said: “I happen to think that of the two options on the table it is likely that - detaching the emotion from it - the first option (a robust long lease along the lines of 175 years, at peppercorn rate, with no break clause, biting on GC's successors but that might be reliant on GC's own financial health) entails less risk than the second (ownership but with a standard security that might be triggered
  7. Of the three options, lease (option A), secured debt and a clean transfer of ownership to MCT I think A was the least risky option of the three, yeah. I still think that. I thought another option that was being discussed, a propco model, could work, and I still think that. I’m not sure what you are arguing here. Or why.
  8. There’s no real point distracting from the discussion of the current deal with a back and forth about this now, but options A and B weren’t my arguments to be (“hilariously”) demolished - they were the options actually on the table at that time, put by MCT, after actual negotiations between GC and MCT and their (very good) lawyers. That was my view of the two options on the table and what I’d seen as the most commonly cited alternative/ideal which was a clean transfer to MCT. I said in February when this was announced (the same week - how many months further back can it go?) that a propco mode
  9. MCT’s own explanation of the current deal says ”As we outlined there are several variables which complicate the issue, and this is the reason why it is not simple for Golden Casket to transfer the shareholding and ground to MCT. In the case where this did happen there may be future significant tax liabilities for all parties involved which could lead to a situation where the club and ground may be at risk.” And I note you didn’t quote the post where I said a propco/opco option could be workable. Good of you to not engage though...
  10. Ah yeah - wasn’t at Palmerston but Firhill was an absolute nightmare. Especially as I’d “brought a friend”.
  11. Memory playing tricks or were we at one point top under Moore with a negative goal difference?
  12. Agree with this - hard to argue with what he achieved at St Mirren and at Queen’s Park over decent stretches. Hopefully QOTS was an exception. Though from memory wasn’t it ditching Lennon for Craig that did for St Mirren?
  13. From the outside looking in, Stewart Petrie seems to be doing a really good job with Montrose and could possibly come into the same bracket.
  14. Right. But just to repeat what I said, wasn’t the March deadline about MCT proving financial viability rather than transferring ownership? In the former case there is still room for negotiations about the details of the transfer of ownership to be negotiated and concluded beyond that point.
