The Falkirk FC Thread


Recommended Posts

This 400k has been there since the summer. It was always going to need covered by investment of some sort of another.  Thinking that fss was ever going to cover it was an extreme longshot so really we are in no different a situation to where we were 6 months ago.  The concern is cash at hand but I'm not overly concerned as MR and SA won't let a club they did so much to keep going fall into admin again.

And what if they’ve already funded the shortfall or almost funded it and there is nothing to come clean over? They’ve already been completely transparent about 400k operating loss and the efforts that were underway to try and fund it. The later than usual AGM combined with the podcast doesn’t in itself mean anything, it’s just adding 2 and 2 together and getting 5. 

I just hope you’re correct.

Time will tell.

I’ve been very clear that I have no connections to either the current or previous regimes.

I think it is perfectly reasonable to ask questions and scrutinise what is going on whoever the board is or whether people’s mates are on it.

I don’t buy into this idea that we should just sit and clap our hands as there are good guys now on the board. Particularly when some of the posters who were rightly critical of previous boards will now not accept any challenge or criticism of what is going on.

The current board cannot be considered blameless either in my view considering some of the spending decisions that they have made.

Not sure how true that is. I’ve consistently questioned things about the club I don’t agree with however you used to regularly mark me down whenever I questioned anything about the previous board. That doesn’t mean to say I disagree with your opinion on the right to scrutinise anything you see fit.

I think it has been made pretty clear on various media channels that we need to find around £400k. It's not a secret !

They have asked the wider fan base to help through calls to join the FSS (or the Patrons Group) but this has been largely ignored. Remember they were castigated for the comment re actual numbers joined versus potential core support.  Around 600 members of a 4000 core support, is roughly only 15% of our fans signing up to this initiative to help the club. If the fans truly want fan ownership, we really should be doing better than this.

 

I live on the other side of the world and I know that the club is in dire straits so I’ve signed up to the FSS. How the f*ck can fans who live and work in the Falkirk area not know that we’re up shit creek without a paddle? What will it take for them to commit a decent wedge in reasonable numbers; a front page advert/plea in the Falkirk Herald? McGlynn, Smith and the Board standing in the centre circle at half time pleading their case for more help from the fans? We pride ourselves on being the best and most loyal of fans – our current situation and lack of support from the fan base suggests otherwise.

Re: the 600+ fans who have signed up to the FSS, and without knowing their personal financial situations, if everyone of us pledged £500 to some sort of fighting fund, that would make a big £300k dent in our £400k black hole.

I’ll pony up a monkey, anybody else? (if the missus finds out she’ll go fecking Tonto but what the hell).

And before anyone has a go, I’m not trying to be some sort of “I’m a better fan than you”, I’m only trying to help my club. And anyway, my 500 quid would be chickenfeed compared to what some P&B posters have done previously for the club.

Something along those lines is what’s needed if indeed we don’t have the necessary funds in place and I’m sure many loyal fans will put their hands in their pockets but we must have the facts.

In this case, ignorance most certainly is not bliss.

PedroMoutinho really seems to be revelling in this financial crisis which was created by the imbeciles who polluted the Boardroom previously.

Almost as if he has an agenda.

The financial crisis was created by the current board deciding to spend more in the summer than they had cash reserves to pay for. 

Still, if it all goes tits up they can always get their acolytes to log onto P&B and blame someone else.

Firstly what an absolute spillage of bile/shite by some posting on from the outside, many should look at their own clubs situation……..
We've got a serious situation which requires immediate cash/investment/soft loans and the new guys in town have been in long enough to fully review all aspects of the club including the finances. For me there’s more than a concern/worry that they’ve underestimated the P&L.

I’m to blame, I kicked the arse right out it during my recent visit to hospitality. If me and my chums hadn’t drank so much we’d probably have the cash for the 4th stand instead of being in this perilous predicament.

Only because we can’t shift the dross left over from last season who were scandalously awarded multi year contracts.

Hardly. You had debts of over 10 million quid FFS and didn't pay back a single bean. I would hope that we'd never stoop that low.

Too easy hahahahaha

Wallpapers who laugh at their own jokes are worth a watching.
