    Apologies, I wasn't quite sure what direction your response was going there. Agreed, the link up between the companies should absolutely be of huge benefit to us as a club. Good to see my Welsh team Newport County involved in it as well.

    Virtually every company on the Earth has a fully functioning, targeted and paid for social media presence. It's easy advertising to increase site hits and customer interaction. It is literally how most companies operate their online presence. Even LinkedIn has basically morphed into a business version of Facebook.

    I'd agree with that. The games and mobile companies and platforms like Facebook are responsible for addictions Worldwide and the general loss of social skills, but are universally accepted. Suicide prevention is a noble addition to our shirts, however there are endless causes of it. Whilst gambling may be a contributing factor in some cases, it is only a small piece of of the overall picture. Drugs, drink, relationships, mental health, lifestyle, work, trauma the list continues ad infinitum. Separating the business side of things from the charitable side of things is essential here. Both can work on our shirts. I'm sure Paddy Power contribute greatly to the specific addiction charities concerned with their markets, with the likely implementation that they will have to contribute an even greater amount through evolving legislation.

    Gambling/Alcohol advertising doesn't bother me, fuck even the (iconic) tobacco advertising in motor sport didn't bother me. (which they're impressively sneaking back in) We're a small Club and a hugely successful business being willing to back us financially is quite the coup for the us. Gambling companies, airlines, car manufacturers and tech giants seem to be almost exclusively where the money is at these days so there's no point having some faux morality about the business of sponsorship deals. IMO having Cash Converters as our main sponsor was much worse than what we've just agreed with Paddy Power.

    Can UBH knock up a green 3rd kit to see how it comes out. In the dark green similar to a Fir tree. Some C&A flashing as well.

    The 'Magnificent' David Turnbull Discussion Thread

    Would be an absolutely mental move. The chance to get out of our backwater league to develop at an EPL team under a very good coach is something young Scottish players should be walking over hot coals for. To throw that away to work with Lennon and Kennedy at Celtic, under the cloud of shit that will come over the next 2 seasons is bewildering.

    2019-20 Rebuild

    As you say it's a rough guide, but some documentation I was reading had us owing Les £650k and Boyle £350k via guarantees. There's no way we can owe John Boyle that much surely? I'd be surprised if we actually still owed Les as much as stated either. They both seem enormous sums of money unless things really were that bad? I like that we've got a Pacific Shelf 1272 involved in the Club as a creditor as well...

    Surely you'd be wanting to stop 9 in a row? Or is he just conceding that title already?

    It is also worth noting how much of a basket case the EFL is. More than half the Clubs are operating on unsustainable budgets based entirely on loans/debt (much like Rangers and Dundee). Looking at the financial statistics, I would be surprised if we are not fast approaching the point of no return when it comes to the EFL in terms of a widespread collapse of the Clubs involved in it. Had the latest Sky Sports deal not been forced through, much to chagrin of the biggest sides in the Championship like Villa and Leeds, the financial collapse of some clubs would have been greatly accelerated. So many are teetering on the brink through obscene financial mismanagement and gambling on promotion that it will eventually bit them on the arse.

    He's one of the most gifted midfielders any Scottish Academy has produced in decades.

    Robinson... How Do We Think He's Doing ?

    It's a big problem this team faces if they aren't 100% "at it". We've committed to signing grafters over genuine ability and last season it worked, but this season, through various reasons, those grafters haven't been at 100% which gives us no leeway in our game plan to make up for the distinct lack of ability in our side. Robinson has been extremely fortunate to have young Turnbull come into the side and add some much needed ability, but he can't do it on his own. Whether the manager has lost the dressing room or the players have chucked it, but the desire and intensity shown last season just isn't there at all.

    Scottish Cup 4th Round Motherwell v Ross County Sat 19th January (H)

    It baffles me with every passing shitfest how Robinson has managed to ascend to achieve the UEFA Pro Licence and be an assessor fro the Irish FA. There is almost nothing on the park that suggests we are a top flight footballing team. If we aren't relegated this year, then we will most certainly be the following season. I've gotten bored of even bothering to start picking apart how shite a footballing team we are. That was a fucking holocaust of a performance against a really, really average side. In a season of demoralising mediocrity, especially at Fir Park, that disaster is right up there. The season's pretty much over unless we get even worse and get caught by 3 of the worst teams ever to blacken the Scottish top flight. Unbelievably grim stuff.
