    State of Play

    That's my point exactly, so any cut in non playing staff increases the playing budget, so why must that be mentioned ad nauseum, its a basic fact The other point is, as I understand it, PR people are not the ones whose jobs are under threat, so your interpretation of the question is a little flawed

    State of Play

    Its PR bullsh!t to mention it goes to playing budget - probably to dampen criticism You have a finite income - although from some thing I have heard dwindling may be better description but lets use finite You have that income to spend The less that goes on off field costs, the more there is for players Ergo , any cut in costs (when you are debt free) must increase the player budget - unless you are wanting to make a profit and generate positive cash

    We had a bank of last resort - normal rules perhaps did not apply. The point is they should. Always.

    State of Play

    Some of us predicted it would happen about 9 months ago. But we were told we were wrong. Billy Allan, David Beattie, Colin Weir et al must all wonder why they bothered giving their cash and time IF we end up back where we started. Despite divisions on this forum, I am sure no one wants that.

    Youth Academy closing ?

    Yes. That is if course clubs who are paying for it themselves. We are not in that position. I agree with javeajag, no need or point in speculating further it will be what it will be and we will find out soon enough

    Youth Academy closing ?

    If you try to act like a top division club on a championship budget because you believe you will instantly return to 'where we belong', then when the cuts come they will necessarily be deeper Hope this isn't true but my mental arithmetic suggests it will have been a tricky season financially, so who knows, perhaps any Weir money is needed further up the food chain?

    The question is will it bring in more money. Or less money than the ambassadors. Its not new. It’s a replacement for something previously in place. It’s more expensive for less benefits. So it might be a genius move and raise more money. But it might not. Suppose the current ambassadors would be the ones to ask.

    Joe Cardle signs

    'Kris didn't want to be a coach' implies that he was offered that opportunity, otherwise why mention it I do not think that happened - the video wont dissuade me from the view that for someone with a desire in dealing in facts you are muddying the waters a little

    Joe Cardle signs

    you only deal in facts you said And said Kris didn't want to be a coach implying he was offered a coaching role (which I don't think he was) Thanks for clarifying that you don't know And yes, good news re Cardle

    You are implying Kris was offered a contract as a coach. Was he?

    Yet it is termed 'an upgraded experience'?

    So your barometer of success is 'make progress'? With the likely configuration of the league next season it is almost impossible not to make progress IMO! If as you urge, people should leave the past behind and start with a clean slate (which I agree with wholeheartedly) then you need a realistic measure of success rather than GC already being let off the hook for next season by people managing expectations downwards.

    I agree about the stop gap signings I just think anything less than 4th would be complete failure given the other teams and their present resources I think lesser paid managers could achieve 4th in that league next season and so our expectation levels for a manager recruited with the goal of promotion, ought to be promotion If we judge him by lesser criteria, I am not sure where we go next. (although I accept London Exiles addition to Norges post)
