  1. Birthdays and mentions v Ross County

    Hi Gav. Can you wish Andy Millar, secretary of the Killie Trust a happy birthday please?
  2. Aberdeen Match thread (Fred)

    Congratulations to whoever won the Liam Gallagher tickets donated by TIK. Couldn’t catch his name in the FB.
  3. Murrayfield - who's in?

    Only one ticket left at shop - pay at the gate at Murrayfield.
  4. Safe standing

    Article shared by Supporters Direct (https://www.theguardian.com/football/blog/2017/oct/22/football-safe-standing-home-advantage-studies) suggests that safe standing can improve atmosphere and possibly noisy home crowd could influence referee. Interestingly they cite some research showing that more goals, for both home and away teams, are scored when there are no fans behind the goal. Any stattos know if this is the case at Rugby Park?
  5. Escrow Account

    somebody spoke about the club being able to access the money if certain criteria was met. Also won't be the first time the Club has questioned an organisation's or an individual's legitimacy to carry out actions. Fans will start to think twice if doubts are cast over the abilities of whoever takes on the escrow account. I can see why some want this to happen but I personally see too many obstacles. Can't we take responsibility for our own actions and just not buy a season ticket? The Club will soon get the message.
  6. Escrow Account

    Has to be a bit more than that, need a proper paper trail. I know that the trust directors are all busy juggling trust stuff with the other areas of their lives - how many other members / fans will volunteer to run with this? Also this will divert money from the Club (even if only temporarily). They will be all over any scheme looking for loopholes or issues, how long before legal action is threatened? Just look at the EGM request. Any scheme has to be spot on.
  7. Escrow Account

    The Trust would have to conform to the same regulations outlined above and as a Community Benefit Society would also have to justify any Scheme to the FCA. In terms of the practicalities, the Trust is operated by volunteers. I think it would be a big ask to keep track of who is putting money in and where it should be returned to within certain timescales.
  8. QTS put pressure on MJ

    Said on Westsound this morning that QTS had been misquoted and that they were happy to remain as sponsors. Can't see a link.
  9. The Premiership Is Back! (Motherwell Thread)

    Yep, apparently he told the 4th official to F Off when he was asked to move back.
  10. Killie Trust SGM

    7 for 7.30 according to their web page http://killietrust.killiefc.com/news.php
  11. Should the Trust support calls for an EGM?

    It seems to me that some are confusing the democracy of the Trust with inaction. The direction of the Trust is set at the AGM by the members and the directors carry out the work. At the past few AGMs it has been clear that members support the Trust in Killie initiative. If directors feel that this objective may not be met by publically supporting the call for an EGM and members are not asking them to then there is no mandate. Everyone has the same agenda and it could be that that coming at the problem from different angles will be more successful. Division among fans only helps Johnstone.
  12. Amendments to Articles

    Is there still time to submit a motion at this year's AGM?
  13. Sports Bar - Old Firm

    In my opinion the difference between these guys and a Trust director is the links and knowledge the Trust has access to. The directors you mentioned were acting on their own, the Trust can access a range of professional expertise through their membership and also are in touch with other Trusts who have either taken over their Club or are a major shareholder.
