Will the punishments affect us anyway?

Putting the financial penalty aside, the transfer embargo shouldnt have any effect on our progress as a club.

Whoever came in was going to make sweeping cuts to the playing staff, and there wouldnt have been many coming in anyway.

We can still sign under-18s. Weve been on here all week saying we'd be happy to see a team of youngsters develop.

In the summer get rid of anyone not willing to play for under £10k a week, give the youngsters we already have at our disposal a chance. With a few loanees in, we'll still be in the mix.

In a couple of seasons we'll have a fair chunk of our debt payed off, a team bursting with 21 year olds with 100 games under their belts.

the problem is that we could in theory lose ALL of our first team stars should the worst happen

in that case we would be playing 11 starting under 18's, if we have that many good enough :(

Maybe not under 18s, but look at the youngsters we have at the club, ready to get thrown in. Darren Cole, Ross Perry, Jamie Ness (if fit), Kyle Hutton, Rhys McCabe, Andy Mitchell, Kai Naismith.

Asking a bidder to gamble millions on what may be a relegated team is the problem.

A few of our lower earners stay and about 13 18 year olds to keep us up would imo see bids go down rather than up.

If its a Newco. we could start the Season minus double figures also, who is going to buy that.

Maybe im underestimating the spl as a competition. But with whatever team were left with, im confident the'd compete in the top 6 at least.

Would you gamble millions on it?

Gamble millions that every player becomes a free agent and you can only get the 18 year olds back, its the impact on any bidders thoughts rather than who we could beat with the weans thats the biggest problem here.

Gamble millions on what?

None of these potential bidders have came out and suggested they'll invest anything on the playing squad.

We were looking at major cuts next season, no matter what.

Miller is putting down 11 million TBK possibly the same, those millions.

Could be back in the same state next year if relegated.

Think you need to have a wee think about what this could mean for any investor, its not how a supporter is thinking here but an investor.

Sorry mate, still cant see what difference that makes. £11m being mentioned is part of the takeover, none of that would be spent in improving the squad.

A thought just occurred to me. If we where to become a NEWCO, then would all the assests including the players not be registered to the OLDCO? When we then restart as a newco and try to bring the assets and players over to the newco,, would they not then need to be re-registered to the newco?????

In other words who are the players registered to during any interim period? That indeed would be another nightmare senario if indeed it had another knock on effect in that case. :(

You make an offer for a house and somebody starts stripping slates off the roof do you increase your offer.

Is an under 19 team heading for the first division ( possibly) still worth the same investment.

If these sanctions where in place when bids came in how many would have even bothered.

It could take two years for investors ideas and plans for the club to begin.

What if the fans get fed up, what if season tickets are not on sale before the season starts there`s a multitude of new questions that need thought about.

Would we be allowed to resign the players whose contracts run out at the end of the season ie Aluko, Little??

Yes. It's helpful to note the distinction between a player's registration at the SFA (spit) and the player's contract with a club. It's a registration embargo only so any players where we already hold their registrations can be given new contracts.

Not the point.

And they will affect someone - the SFA.

Spot on.

Stop turning the other cheek to these bastards and face them head on. I'm, sick of seeing so many so willing to accept these ridiculous sanctions when we could destroy these corrupt bastards by the various forms of protest we have discussed on here.

Don't let the bastards drag us down.

Cheers Boss. This was one of my major concerns. (tu)
