Interesting to see how governments reward those heros once the worst is over.

Let’s no let this happen. The dalek Teresa told us there was no ‘magic money tree’ - now they’ve found it. Cancel Trident, HS2 the bonkers road building programme and tax the s**te out of greedy bastards like Branson and Green. Nationalise telecoms - free broadband doesn’t look daft now does it. Rant not over just paused .....

You can blame @gordon4418. I was minding my own business on the COVID-19 thread. 

I'll be taking a break from the site for my own sanity during what will undoubtedly be a tough few months ahead. 

Wishing all Killie fans good luck while we get through this. 

I'll hopefully be back in September for the new season. 

As Cameron said to Clegg........come back!!!  :/

I think in general we need to have a bit of understanding and a little more flexibility with folks coming across a bit more Dickish than normal at the moment, as folks are under a s**tload more pressure and are worrying more than normal. 

Fraz is one of those under particular stress and this forum will be know of this escapes.

Apart from me, and McLean because were just arseholes all the time anyway.

Cheers pal....always the encouraging word :2:

It is to an extent but I think that the crisis is sure to go on for five or six months, in which case cash flow “could be a problem”.   

But we will not be alone in that and we have the unexpected benefit of having a lot of players out of contract in the summer. 

Our wage bill will reduce hugely after May. Depending on how things look then, we can try to resign some players or sit tight and wait to see when play is likely to resume. 

Players faced with the alternative of losing their income for an indefinite period might be easy to deal with. 

At least we have a board which will make sound financial decisions and the benefit of the Trust’s monthly contribution.  

 

That was some planning by the Board! Nearly everyone out of contract when we need to drastically cut our outgoings, followed by cherry picking of the players available from the wrecked clubs. We know nothing.

I completely understand that and accept that argument. 

I don't think that we should pretend that it hasn't cost us money though. 

Compared to recent Old Scum attendances, we are down 4000 a game offset by at most 2000 extra home fans. The increased support at other games would have been there anyway, so we’re down roughly 8000 x £30 = £240000. It’s much better for Killie fans, but let’s not delude ourselves it’s costing us two players at the top of our pay scale.

Speaking personally I think we all get that but feel that it is worth it to stand up to those bullies and their poxy fans

What would you rather have though? 2 extra players or a better atmosphere for Killie fans?

I'd have said it was a safer atmosphere rather than better.
