Our future under Ashley looks precarious, at best. I have doubts that he will invest in us through a further share issue. He has used short term loans to secure control over us. Through onerous contracts he has grabbed revenue from our retail & advertising operations. To me, this is all he is interested in.

 

The Union of Fans issued a statement calling on the SFA to intervene. Have they not met this request?

 

I fear for our existence under continued 'Wig' control. SFA sanctions could also threaten our licence to play.

 

We are indeed between a rock and a hard place!

True. But my point was the rules were there before they accepted Ashley's loan and his chosen man yet they still went ahead putting us at risk of being hit with a fine or worse by the SFA.

 

It'll be interesting to see how Toxic attempts a siege mentality against the SFA over this.

 

They are running out of escape hatches. I really don't care who blocks the final one.

 

He will use his favoured poodles on FB, Twitter and RM. Merlin will be tapping away as we speak.
