    U-16s go free, scrapped ...

    You need to register upfront for the free ST Without the season ticket it costs a fiver ST is only valid for JHS (Family Section) so can’t be used for JLS Free walk ups no longer happen Lots of kids go to football themselves at 12 as they do cinema or go into town etc Me and most of my mates started going to Firhill around that age (30 + years ago) and went on the supporters buses to away games. Football is way more sanitized now than it was then and a lot safer

    Only if you register and want to sit in Family section. Yes but it’ll cost you a fiver to get in Yes they will also need to pay a fiver, and more than likely won’t fill in form or now go. if they are under 12 the parents must fill the form in, 12-16 with parents consent. Random or occasional U16 fans won’t go through this “stress and hassle” they’ll play Fortnite or FIFA instead of going to Firhill

    Taking people’s data for being part of a team and taking people’s (children’s) data for marketing or whatever are completely different kettles of fish. I’m sure the GDPR statement when you sign up will clarify this, but handling and protection of children’s data is a mine field

    I hope they follow the GDPR on the data they are collecting especially as it’s for minors.

    State of Play

    Before the Weirs cash we were trading at a profit and a sustainable business. Since his cash we seem to have stopped all the business models that got us their relying on his cash. That is no fault of Colin Weir but of those running our club.

    Youth Academy closing ?

    Very probable, but our previous managers remit was promotion, he was in 8th when he was fired after 11(?) games for failing to deliver his KPI. Our new manager had the same remit and 24 games and a transfer window to achieve it in. He took us to bottom for several weeks and avoided relegation on the last day of the season after spending considerably more than previous manager in January, yet he’s the savior?

    If the PR person brings in more via hospitality and sponsorship than his/hers wages then you keep the PR person Hospitality and sponsorship uptake last year was by all accounts very high, this season with our handling of situations we will struggle with various ST holders, ambassadors and sponsors stating they won’t take up this year, so how do we generate new ST holders, ambassadors (71 club now) and sponsors? We fire the guy that helped bring these in last few years

    Staff from the club have posted on LinkedIn that they’ve been made redundant

    “Get to the ball”

    I can’t watch it here in Saudi, I will when I get back to Europe. That does make more sense

    That appears to be the case, it would (in hindsight) have been better to have a small cut last year and set ourselves up as a Championship team then if all went well we’d be high and dry, rather than placing it all on red and realizing your playing dominoes

    Who Are The Jags Players In This Photo?

    Is it a testimonial? Looks like Willie Miller & Maurice Malpas who only played in a Scotland team together

    There is projecting your shortfall and actually acting on it, finance guys can give their recommendations but it’s always the CEO or GM that acts on it or ignores it hoping for that postal order to finally turn up

    “Get to the ball”

    Kerso??? Intelligent players intersect the ball, cut avenues to force mistakes, don’t chase after the ball.
