Sorry, my mis-read.

The part that says Ronnie is determained to avoid administration worries me. The fact now he has said the word plus also if we fail with the courts we are looking likely to enter administration. A complete and utter mess

So we're going to throw away the money we got for Docherty!

As it said in the report "The employee - sole authorised user of the club's Bankline accounts "

Why would any organisation of this size have a SOLE authoriser?

The loss is down to lack of controls/management, and any money spent on legal action will be wasted.

If we have no money, who is funding the legal action?

The interview says the club lost £989,000 but that they have recovered some so the club are looking for 800,000 back. So they recovered £189,000? The club have received the Uefa payment money which was over 300k. On top of that they have sold Docherty and will have received part payment say 100k. By my crappy maths we have taken in over half a million since the scam. We were told at the start, that the reason so much was in the accounts was it was being stockpiled for future projects including a five a side pitch. As far as I can see the club has money to cover the running costs and if the bank gives 400k back that might allow for the projects. We were also told that the directors had put money in and there was no fear that we could meet wages etc. Now there is a hint of administration. Quite what the truth is is anybodies guess. In any other business the chief executive would have gone. Oh wait he'’s not an authorised internet account signatory !!!

We have to be careful here of what we say about this situation on this forum, now that two individuals have given it media coverage and where there appears be more than one interpretation of what said, or happened.

Short answer is that we appear to have a major cash flow issue with possibly nowhere near enough to trade to the end of the season, where 'administration' was suggested somewhere. A 'Fire Sale' of Docherty, others released from contracts, a search for new directors/sponsor's, none of this reads good.

Chairman indicates fans will now know more. Hopefully we get a date, very soon, now that our plight is on STV news.

I'm assuming the employee no longer works for the club. It doesn't seem like the reporter asked this question.

I don't see how we have no money, as previously said, we should have the Celtic windfall and some money already for Docherty.

I'm also led to believe RBS are very confident on their position. They have heard the position "me and all my friends will take all our other business away " many times before and take it with a pinch of salt , so there's no point even contemplating an Accies fans RBS boycott.

Having said all that there are still plenty of recent successful precedents of business compensation claims against RBS , which were initially vigorously opposed, so all may not be lost.

This is hilarious. As if RBS a multi million pound bank would care about losing a few hundred customers over this. :lol:

Fantastic news Sean, looking forward to it and hope everyone can attend.

One thing I will say though, why not a Saturday?

Possibly much less pressure on Chairman, not having to host visiting Team Directors/ sponsors etc. Also gives a marketing boost for under 20's game with potentially more fans attending.

Should be an interesting evening, although an 8pm k/o leaves perhaps only an hour or so of (difficult) questions to be fielded.

I didn't think of that, it does make sense then.

I'll be there and i hope majority of the people on here will be too.

Stupid time and stupid day. Why not have it 12 b4 the thistle game? Les Gray held a forum with no problem at all on a Saturday b4 a Killie game last year.

One for the SLO,

Do we know who is going to be on the panel? I assume Ronnie, Les and hopefully Canzo but is there any chance of a player or two? I think it would be good to hear their opinions on matters like the pitch.
