Seems clear from the operating expenses and 'going concern' note by the auditors that the club has to significantly cut costs and raise funds if we're to compete successfully again in Scottish Football.

 

To say we're struggling to make ends meet is an understatement. Thus, the forthcoming review now has more importance than ever.

From looking at the costs we will be in unsustainable debt again soon without significant investment. irrespective of competing in Scottish football. Costs need to be drastically cut and people can dream on if they think we're going to be spend big sums of money in the next season or 2. The scary thing is we basically need a whole new team for the SPL and we have made a right mess of things.

 

We need to be planning long term on youth development and overseas scouting so that we can start making millions of pounds in net profit on transfers per season like Celtic do. I don't think the players they've been signing are all that great either, we should be aiming to do better than them but they are getting it right. We get it very wrong.

In addition:

 

Income from broadcasting down

Income from Commercial down

Other operating income down.

 

Seriously wtf.

 

Glad its not just me. How do costs over 6 months go up on 7 months worth when green was screaming it's all one off costs this time last year.

Or alternatively how does a company losing money last year hand over fist not cut costs drastically.

 

It's like the guy I knew who when we were made redundant took his 20k to Amsterdam and came back 6 months later with lots of stories and broke. Kids could run us better.
