    Those are all clubs who have no idea which division they will be playing in next season and any preparations for 2020/20 are hamstrung until they do. We know we're second in the Premiership and will be playing in the Premiership next season. That can also have a huge impact on their budgets depending on which league they are in so can't make any sort of long-term plans.

    Won't be taking the refund for myself or the girls tickets, I'm fortunate enough to be back working full time and have overtime coming up next month so I'll be able to manage, if people need the money then they shouldn't be getting any serious abuse for it imo, I have no problem with any bear claiming refund because they are skint, I've been there myself many times and it's not a nice feeling.

    The SLO post was multiple tweets which were actually pretty informative. The first wasnt sarcastic unless you wanted to read it that way, I've seen folk unaware of the renewal email being sent with a link, one of the subsequent tweets clarified what to do if you hadn't received the email. 
    We are customers. Fans yes, but undoubtedly a revenue stream. I'd be worried if the Board weren't getting money in, including ours. No idea what you mean by other permutation.
    Seems you're seeing the negative in pretty every aspect of the club these days. Draining reading it, fuck knows what it must be like living it.

    You’re saying you wanted it to do better but then clogging up a thread in which the SLO is trying to help people sign up.
    Cut the personal abuse out @Courtyard Bear 
    First and last warning.

    10k plus in 3 weeks isn’t struggling. I came on when I seen some fans struggling with their ST. 
     
    we had many arguments in the past but needless personal abuse isn’t worth my time.

    Guys - this has been an interesting thread but it’s getting derailed with personal attacks.  Keep it on topic please.

    Aye mate, I'm the fanny as you make up weird lies about me 'greeting' about my mental health.
    Tell you something though, there's been plenty of people who have seen me 'greeting' about my mental health on here, twitter and elsewhere who have reached out to me about their own problems and gotten the help and support they need. If me 'greeting' about my mental health helps someone get the help they need then I'll take being a fanny every fucking day of the week.

    Players like Kent and Hagi are exactly the type and quality of player we should be targeting right now. Both have potential to develop further with the  financial benefit that will bring in with future transfer fees and are capable of turning a game around when needed. If they can develop consistency and perform well against the lower quality teams when the adrenaline and competitive edge is missing, then we will benefit enormously.  A few more like these and we’ll be there or thereabouts at the end of next season.

    Probably not tbh. It’s small beer in the overall picture and would have sent out the wrong message about the stability of the club. It wouldn’t have looked right if we’re going out and buying players too and may even have put off some potential targets from joining.
    If players wanted to voluntarily group together and say they were going to make up any shortfall for furloughed backroom staff, then that would have been welcomed and addressed an inequality but cutting salaries across the board and giving players the opportunity to leave for nothing under breach of contract and get a big signing on fee elsewhere would have been a bad move.

    So in summary...
    Our unsuccessful squad have to be motivated by having their salaries cut by 50%. To give us a financial competitive edge, at their direct cost. 
    Most of us accept we need 1st team signings if we are to win a league. These will likely be at the top end of our salary budget. What do we do then, keep them on a high salary their teammates are contributing towards, or get them to drop by 50% so they too can be motivated? Or maybe we just sign players of less quality and still expect success.
    If industry averages reduce salaries then great. It may well happen. But any expectation to win the league after being the only club cutting salaries is a nonsense. And fans expecting it of players, who would be in their rights to walk away, are deluded.

    Thought it needed a thread on this and the great work Kris has been doing since his Brother took his own life. Especially in these times when mental health is a real problem and only going to get worse unless people find help.

    Mate I’ve been on this forum for more than 10 years 😂😂
    I think I’d just rather focus on my team, if we did our business on the park it wouldn’t matter how corrupt/inept they were, and we’d be having a party right now
    Don’t take it out on me

    Lot of wind and pish in this thread. The OP asked about those who were NOT renewing, and straight away it is deluged with "I've renewed" posts.
    To those thay are gibbering the "I'm glad I can now give money to my club" patter - there was nothing to stop you walking up to the front door for the past few years and handing in a bag of cash or a cheque?
    Scrapping a years long waiting list and asking people to pay a fee to get on a new waiting list is just fleecing the desperate.
    I really don't like the direction the club is going in relation to the way loyal fans are treated.

    My dad isn’t renewing , nothing to do with this recent shitstorm. He’s no longer able to get to games regularly so decided best to let someone use the seat. He’s been going since the 1940s so probably deserves a wee rest.

    That would be stupid.
    Also, can you stop using the thumbs up emoji after every post, cheers.

    There is absolutely nothing close to being remotely wrong with what Boyd said.

    I respect the dead but life continues, I just dislike it being used as a reason to manipulate this football situation.  Football as well as the rest of the country should be focusing on how to get people back to work in some form, otherwise we'll be seeing another economic crash.  So I think what the German boss said about wanting to play Rangers behind closed doors was okay. Sorry to hear you've lost your job.
