    I definitely agree mate don't get me wrong.

    But for me, this year the UCL qualifiers were always going to be difficult. It's not me defending the board, more the manager tbh.

    Had he been brought in sooner (February) things might have been a lot different. Again that's on the board.

    I think we will see some signings being completed this week. The CB from city and the RB from liega. We have already spent over 10 mill on furuhashi Abada starfelt and Hart with the money from Ajer covering this. I believe we have been waiting on a bid for Edouard and hoping his money will finance any more new signings, however I'm not sure he will be sold until deadline day (if at all). This season is must win for the cl money so I'm suprisingly optimistic that they will back Ang over the next few days. The Tories will want that CL pot money for sure.

    It's quite simple, if the board can't get players signed in timely fashion then just give Ange the cash and let him do it.

    Or better still, the * that arranged that fencing to be erected last season should be in charge of signings.. he certainly knew how act fast enough back then.

    When it comes to self preservation of the board everything is done, but when it comes to the thing that really matters, the thing that keeps the whole thing in existence ..the team.. the board drag their feet and try to save pennies while risking tens of millions.

    They still need held to account about the slow signings every fcyking year.. its costing us a fortune and probably has stopped players signing in the past as we are already out of CL

    Thought the Green Brigade’s display was embarrassing tonight.

    This is the same group which took all heat off Lawwell by cementing his narrative on Rodgers’ departure with their daft ‘immortality for mediocrity’ banner.

    Their banners long after the horse has bolted just come across as a face saving exercise.

    Either come up with a consistent campaign or wrap it.

    What are you even going on about. It’s the first time they’ve been able to get in and make a point. Embarrassing post.

    (Might be missing something so apologies in advance)

    But I dont get the banner, do the GB think they should be allowed in for free? Or has the £19 been an extra charge?

    The Green Brigade might create an atmosphere but they continually embarrass the majority of the support with their juvenile nonsense.

    Im sure St Johnstone made their game free to all fans, which is an amazing gesture to considering what that money can do for the club.

    If they can do something like that to repay the loyalty of the fans, then we definitely can

    It was £19 for a ticket tonight. Most season tickets holders paid £500+ last season and never seen inside the ground and the first game some can get back, they’re fleecing us for more money. Tickets should have been free

    Think the banner was more like rinsing the fans of what is needed.
    Let's face it....lenny should have been sacked after the sparta game but it took 6 months after that plus another what 4 months to appoint a manager?

    Either way.....after recent games ange has more than said he needs more from the board.

    Honestly I didn’t really have a problem with the board charging for that match, it’s the first time in 18 months they would get a full match day revenue. I would have expected them to make it more expensive however

    It's OK to not agree with them, as I occasionally do, but to call them an embarrassment is too far. Perhaps it's a bit early to be hassling Dom, but the sentiment is correct. A free entry for ST holders would have gone a long way here as a show of goodwill. The fans were the one constant and positive throughout last season.
