    Ah yes, sorry, didn't mean to imply those quotes were yours. 'Transformational' was from David Beattie and 'great track record' was from Malcolm Cannon at the board Q&A.

    Indeed. To use all the recent relevant quotes from this debate, I would say 'no worse off', not at all 'transformational' and showing no 'great track record' :-)

    That's true, yes. So the full picture would be half a season of consortium ownership wasn't enough to save them from Championship relegation and a whole season was enough to get League One promotion. So far this season they're on track to repeat the cycle, and their pattern of recent years.

    Good job I never tire of adding this to 'track record' claims; they were relegated first under the consortium before that promotion. Track record shows zero on-field progress by either club compared to the season before the consortium bought them.

    No evidence whatsoever. Neither club has achieved anything more than what they had already achieved immediately before being bought by the consortium. Consortium offer would be a leap of faith. As would TfE.

    A promotion which followed their relegation...following their takeover by New City Capital. At the Q&A Malcolm Cannon admitted Barnsley had made zero net progress when I challenged his assertion of the consortium's 'great track record'.

    I think you're right to read between the lines, there's definitely a gap between DB's mentions of concern at how things were being run, and the assurances at the Q&A that it's just about the bid.

    AGM

    Available on the Companies House website. Someone posted on here (probably in one of the hundred-odd pages of the New Owner thread) very good instructions on how to find it. Go on Companies House, search for Partick Thistle, click on FIling History. The 9th January 2018 entry for confirmation statement gives the entre shareholding at that date.

    They're not traded on an exchange, so the latter; have to find a shareholder and make them an offer.

    Re. your last point, we do know this; they said as much at the open day board Q&A session. They were asked about the mention in Beattie's and the Jags Trust's statements of concern at the previous board's running of the club. They said they would not have put that out if they had been consulted and the reason for their takeover was implementing the sale to the consortium.

    I remember Big Blue Star, and their adverts at Thistle.

    We do have an idea; Nice fans organised a season ticket boycott in protest at them and how they were running the club.

    Total spin doctor, that guy. This and his LMA statement are such selective history rewrites it's unreal. 'His job was to keep the club in the Championship and he did that.' Er, no it wasn't.

    Fact of the day prize for you; was wondering what it was called, never heard of that before, thanks.
