Quite a depressing interview it has to be said. Not a great advert for fans running the club in fact the total opposite. Surprise surprise they may well consider selling the ground if they get a stupendous offer. I know the figure of £10 million was a throw away comment but Cliftonhill is nowhere near that value. If we're lucky it maybe worth £1 million which would be frittered away paying rent at Dunbeth park.
If you asked any board of arfc over the past 100yrs if they got an offer for cliftonhill would they consider it? the answer would have been yes.And thats all this q&a told us.Absolute nonsense stirred up from the advertiser backed up the a following question of a caldwell and co takeover.
As a local newspaper i feel they should be asking our chairman how he intends to achieve target 500,and how they (advertiser) can help. Also i wouldve liked the chairman to set about the previous boards failings,but lets face it thats never went on so no point hoping for miracles.
Straight questions, straight answers, Bucky, what is the issue?
Not a great advert for business men running the club the fact that we have needed Old Firm cup ties, twice, first time to pay off a huge debt, second time to stop the club going under.
None of us are where we want to be, let's get behind the team and push on.
Straight answers but absolutely no-one takes responsibility for the disasterous appointment of John Brogan. The chairman at that time (a lovely guy ) should have resigned fron the Board straight after Brogan had left. Btw some of the existing Board members were there when some the money was getting spent like sweeties and the Shawbrook loan taken out. You talk as if there was absolutely no overlap.
To be fair MH stated it was a mistake re Brogan but this has taken months to come out. The interesting thing for me is the number crunching re parachute payments. I still do not see any feasible plan to build the club up from the bottom to generate income outside of SPFL money.
To get the crowds back up MH is spot on re product on the park but is there any real action from this?
I've absolutely no idea what the purpose of this piece was, still trying to work that out, but looking forward to the DC Q&A follow up next week 😉
Jings. Was that supposed to be a rallying call as we enter the most critical phase in the history of Albion Rovers F.C.
If so it has fallen flat on it's face. You could pick holes in every single answer given but quite honestly I can't be bothered.
The JB appointment was an utter shambles and was obvious to everyone long before our humiliating Scottish Cup exit. We allowed it to drag on long after the experiment had failed.
Why is M.H describing the season we have witnessed as "nail biting" ??. I can think of at least another dozen adjectives to describe this season but woeful, embarrassing and deflating are only 3 of the printable ones.
EH-"The chance of going down becomes less if we keep picking up points"....... Where exactly have we 'kept' picking up points Eddie?
We are where we are because of a lack of results. The only thing we have done with a any consistency this season is string together bad results.
I'm telling every fan that reads this right now. Don't believe this spoon fed drivel about Rovers having the ability to bounce back up straight away if we get relegated. If we go down that will be the end of ARFC.
There are hungry and ambitious clubs out there ran by boards who have business savvy drive and ambition who will overtake Rovers with no trouble at all.
You read interviews like this and it makes you realise why we are exactly where we are.
