    Agreed - but so we are clear - it wasn't takeover verse Status Quo - the Jlo Board had there own Investors lined up - we have No idea why they same as the Barnsley Owners - want to invest in Thistle - we do know roughly the Barnsley Model ( Good or Bad ) So it wasnt about dissenting factions - it looks like two very different beliefs in where we were going - but there was change - no matter which Board you choose

    But the sitting Board were speaking to other Investors ? So why are we assuming there Investors would be better than the ones we know about - also 64% of the shareholders voted them out ? This wasnt a Staus Quo versus Change this was the Previuos Board and there Plans versus the Current Board and there Plans for Investment

    Why would Colin weir not be part of it - we dont actually know the reasons for the takeover - they could have sold the Club and instructed the Board to do so - they didnt need to remove the Old Board for that to happen ?

    Cant disagree with any of that - however Billy Allan - Norman Springford dont need the Money - therefore I doubt they would agree to any buyer simply to get a return - the Jags Trust Statement did make an attempt to explain the logic of the New Owners strategy - which given they sold Nice at a tidy profit has a track record What is of interest is that its recently been stated ( not rumour but fact ) that the previous Board had lined up there own Investors - now we know there are no more "Thistle Minded " Investors to approach- therefore I think we can safely assume that these Investors were not in it for "altruistic or primarily for pro Thistle reasons" - now the question was asked if it was David Low and the Glasgow Rocks Consortium - there was no confirmation nor denial - if it wasn't- then a simple No would have been suffice Now I have No idea if it was -but David Low has been involved in a Number of Football Club Takeovers - Celtic - Clydebank and of Course they took over Glasgow Rocks and the other Rocks Director was appointed to our Board a Month a go So we as a Club seem to have the Old Board Jlo etc with "there Investors" - Plans - Strategy etc unknown - and the current Board ( as of last week ) with "there Investors" - Plans Strategy sort of known- but with Questions Therefore whichever which way this was going- we were getting Investors who were unlikely to be in it for "altruistic or primarily for pro Thistle reasons"

    We dont know if Roughie was fired or simply decided that it wasn't for him - always thought it a strange appointment in the first place

    Three - I can confirm this was the case that the notification was delivered by Sheriffs Officers - this is to ensure there is no dispute that notice was formally served

    And where exactly has the feeder Club idea come from ? My understanding is that there has been no detailed discussions with potential New Owners beyond Shareholders confirming they are willing to consider selling there shares - pretty much thats it - so whilst we do now know a formal approach has been made - until such times as detailed discussions take place everyone ( including I would guess our New Board ) is guessing ref the Plans - its not 100% guarantee that once they look at the Club in detail it fits there model But one thing is for sure - the Shareholders have the Right to listen to offers - The Club has to accommodate this in every way - whilst as Fans we have views - those who parted with there cash own the Club - ignore them at your peril

    And ? My statement is correct - I can see what the logic was - but it wouldn't have been my decision - they were planning on coming straight back up - however when that was clearly not going to happen come December - you re-evalute your decision - you dont keep just pretending it will magically turn around - do I think we have a Stronger Board than we did Yesterday - Yes - does the fact that David Kelly left- and has now returned make me more confident - Yes Do I think they three New Directors wanted to come back on Board - probably not - so there was obviously reasons for the changes - the takeover May or May not happen and I think the Jags Trust Statement sort of sums up my Views on it - but if it doesn't- I think that whoever replaces our Current Directors will be better than we had - thats my view - I honestly have No idea why Supporters of other Clubs wanted to be on the Board of Partick Thistle ?

    I think following will happen - they will look to get the Club Running in a way they are confident with the Business Model They will have proper discussions on a Professional Manner with Potential New Owner ( and I think the Jags Trust Statement is very good regards this ) If we are bought out - they will look for safeguards as best they can - they are Thistle Fans If we are not bought out they will look to most likely the Fan Base and recruit Thistle Fans with Business Experience to replace them ( not me I hasten to add ) - there are lots out there - how we ended up with a Non Thistle Board is something I never got my head round - then over a Period they will hand over to a new team who understand the Club and its Fans

    They are Ex Directors who put in Cash - served the Club well and took a back seat - the fact they have chosen to come back and that David Kelly has been reappointed head of Finances I think is quite telling

    As the majority of the Shareholders are former Directors - then I would say that the have "Done There Bit " however of equal importance to the lack of Shareholding is the fact that the Directors didnt come from the Fan Base - and in fact will most likely be supporters of other Clubs - which implies all our Fans are useless and we have no one of Business Experience worth talking about to run the Club - I would honestly like the Club to be Run by Competent Thistle Fans with Business Experience - if we are going to be run by Non Thistle Fans - then they can invest - the current set up is frankly very strange - why would you want to be A director of a Club you dont support ?

    Why is looking for a Board who invest in the Club a problem ? Why would a New Owner with Contacts and experience be worse than what we have ? Why would a Fan not want to see there Club having a chance at Europe ? Show me where the present incumbents have delivered on anything of substance ? Or any signs that we are going to improve apart from "hoping" for a Play Off Spot -Show me examples of there Business Experience - Connections that are benefiting Partick Thistle So Why the big problem about people looking for better ?

    The Club said that No Official Approach had been made ref Share Transfer- so Im assuming that there is detail still to be resolved - no idea what if Shareholders are willing to sell ? The Board dont own any shares ?

    I think Douglas that there will be confidentiality clauses - also the Board couldn't discuss any details in case it influences any Share Sale - if the SFA are to approve potential New Owners would reveal plans to the SFA - but bit Im not getting is why did the Hibs deal get concluded so quickly - why is ours dragging on ? Its not as though the Board are in a position to block it as they have no shares
