    Pars v Bairns

    Essentially the rule is that cup games such as this give income to both sides. Deduction for expenses of stadium and then an equal split of balance. If a league game, BBC, then no payment. Money to central spfl pool. This then supplements the Sky funds, which pay for the annual distribution based on League standings. Ironically this means that any Hearts boycott of away grounds was likely to be ineffective, because the Hearts away games are likely to be very popular with the BBC., And crowds would have suffered anyway. Probably academic now.

    Black and White Noise, Episode 11 - Steven Whittaker

    Steak Bridie but am increasingly worried that more onion and less meat than back in 19canteen.

    Black and White Noise, Episode 11 - Steven Whittaker

    Settled down with a Bridie and a coffee as advised, and had a very enjoyable listen. Stephen sounds everything we might have hoped for. I'm betting this will be the start of an illustrious coaching career. In the meanwhile, think he'll be a leader on the park for us this year.

    Pars TV / ST holders / East Fife Friendly

    Think Brogan Walls of Fife elite was the trialist? Young lad -- 17 or 18? On that showing Lewis Mayo is one great signing at centre back. First half performances by McInroy and Murray also sound. Three good loan deals there. Whittaker looks like the class player he is. O'Hara looked useful and decent performances from Comrie and Edwards. Those were the ones that caught my eye. Mayo was my pick as MOM.

    Dow replaced by McCann after 30 minutes: looks planned. Dow's first pre-season game I think?

    Picture quality excellent but the mic is picking up a lot of wind noise.

    Archie Gray RIP

    Dreadful news. I talked with him at every home game. Will miss Archie very much.

    The club sold - German consortium

    Keyzer: I can assure you that the fans were not an after thought in Board meetings. Also quite a lot of consultation went on with the shareholders. The tone of those discussions is pretty much set out in the Q and A. As you will understand it is just not possible to put a corporate deal like this out for consultation with fans as individuals. No deal would ever be done on that basis. You will note however that the Pars Supporters' Trust have issued a supportive statement which notes their knowledge and involvement in the matter. Fife Elite: As you say, ultimately it is a matter of business judgement whether the long term interests of the club are best served by this investment or not. As always time will tell but the issues which drove the deal and the change of model are very fairly set out in the Q and A. Clearly the Board has to deal with the facts as they are, as opposed to the facts as they would like them to be. For example the risk model for football clubs in the Championship. You might take some comfort from the fact that the money is coming into DAFC as equity and not debt, there are preemption rights for PUCIC should there ever be a disinvestment, the quality, breadth and background of the investment group, and their stated willingness to work overtly with the people in Dunfermline. All in the Q and A.

    The club sold - German consortium

    There is no chance that DAFC will play anywhere other than at EEP. You can relax Sanguine. Truth be told the Germans are not motivated by the property aspects. Have a read of the Q and A.

    The club sold - German consortium

    Suggest that you read the 3.30 Q and A . This is a very major cash investment in DAFC Ltd by way of equity from a group of German investors who want to work with the existing stakeholders in the club. They have significant football, marketing and financial expertise. It is not one individual -- far from it. The existing board will remain, and be joined by three German directors. There will be sufficient cash to develop a proper youth policy, as well as opening up a scouting network in Germany and eastern Europe. It puts the club in a good position to come out of Covid-19 in good fettle (probably one of the few), and ready to go forwards.

    14 September - limited reopening of sports stadiums (tbc)

    Could be great news or could be a damp squib. If it happens lets hope for 25% of the seated capacity. That should cover all of our season ticket holders.

    Excellent suggestion -- perhaps some scattered forwards at his feet?

    Betfred Cup Group E fixtures

    I'm hoping that some attendance might be allowed. Say 3000 Pars season tickets, and no Falkirk Supporters
