Britton can’t be blamed for the 17/18 relegation season- that was maxwell’s bag. I don’t think he was responsible for the firing of Archie or the hiring of Caldwell either to be honest- he answers to the board 

Just a coincidence then? Could be. 

Something doesn't seem right at the club anyway.

I do think letting miller go was a mistake. In a relegation fight we need experience. Also thought although miller missed a few chances he did start off a lot of moves and linked midfield and attack quite effectively. We don’t have anyone who can do that now. If the money saved on miller allowed us to get Rudden in for example then looking like a mistake of massive proportions given Ruddens fitness  and injury issues.    Both against Arbroath and Dundee we have missed him.

What’s has the first team not  got ? A manager, two assistants, a gk coach, sports science and a turnover of players that’s quite large ! How much time is that lot spending on the women’s team or the academy.....none 

More money, ultimately the woman's team and academy come at a cost. Personally i would disband both because the woman's team will never make us a fortune and the academy apart from Fitzpatrick has failed to produce. We seem to send our academy players on loan and then they get released. I don't see any of the players out on loan coming back that run out of contract this season.

The academy and women’s team come atm at no cost to the club so it’s a non point 

the women’s team actually win games .....

I don't think you're grasping this. It's not cash that's being diverted away from the first team.

Money's been thrown at the first team over the past few seasons, by all accounts. There's been no lack of it.

more money is needed, and i don't think you are grasping the fact that the womens team and academy will never make us back what it costs. this is now for thistle to run with mr weirs cash no longer at beck and call so will be interesting to see how this plays out over next 5 years and if we still have them.

Eh ?

every time anyone makes comment about numerous points you always pull the woman's football card out and ignore everything else, we know you are Jackie's cheerleader but you need to try be less obvious with your biasedness...

They're not costing 'us' anything, though.

Something hasn’t been right since 17/18 the club basically started to nosedive then and has never looked like reversing the trend since. 12 games left this year and I wouldn’t bet on us staying up, or pre-planning for a significant drop in revenue after relegation

They're funded until the end of the 2020/21 season. I assume a decision will need to be made at that point, unless financial provisions have already been made.

I'd agree Archie should've been sacked earlier than he was. But I very much doubt that many would have been of that opinion early in yon season. We had started about every season poorly, gaining momentum. As was the case with our best season.  Also at the time we had a number of injuries most of us thought would make a major difference on return. In hindsight I believe the first time the Board/Maxwell could've/should've acted would have been around Feb/Mar '18.

 

 

I agree that hindsight is a wonderful thing. If my memory is right, roundabout the time Clark was appointed at Killie, there were questions around whether Archie should be kept or not. I confess that I wasn’t in agreement with that group, but maybe a more ruthless board would have acted ?

We all want to see the first team perform better and the club operating in a professional manner but at this moment in time we need to get our priorities right. We need the results on the park to improve so we don't get relegated and then we need to sort out the other side,

Ok....can you me some examples of what you mean as I genuinely don’t know what boardroom politics you are referring and how has that affected us winning football matches ?

I think starting from the time Beattie stepped down, the 6-9 months of the Consortium, Beatties coup, TFE and now the interim board. 
If there is no focus in the boardroom, there is a possibility that focus is diminished on the park as well.
