    Correct. also the anti Steve brown rhetoric. wallopers the lot.all fantasists. It does not seem like there are many proper fans left.

    Hibs v Saints 24 August 2019

    May well have been as the offside rule depends who the Ref. is or flag man.

    I don't know what happened between Tommy and Foster last week but I think the Saints' players will have a pretty good idea. The effort and spirit I saw v Hibs on Saturday suggests they were certainly not demotivated by the incident.

    Taylor is a left back. May be a swap deal with O'Donnel though .

    Steve gets a bang on the head on site and wakes up the next morning with a new vision where he wants to be ultra inclusive and asks saints fans to come up with ways to create new incone streams to increase the turnover so he can increase Tommy's budget. The new income can be one off events or dripping roasts. All ideas welcome. Anything from a few hundred pounds to tens of thousands. He probably won't want to spend big on massive projects but is open to all money making suggestions. Will kick this off with the McD Park main car park. It lies unused for all but about 100 hours per year during home matches. Just down the road is the Perth SSE which has a gigantic staff parking issue. There are hundreds of cars parked off site in every nook and cranny within half a mile or so of the Inveralmond site. It's not ideal for the SSE staff. Will be a pain in the arse for local residents and surely a matter of time before Perth Council do something about it. Up pops Stevie (Knight in shining armour) Brown. A call to SSE, we have the solution to your parking problem. £2.000 per week and you can lease the McD main car park, it's only 5 mins by bus through Tulloch, you can set up a park and ride for your staff. 104 grand a year for saints and a problem for SSE solved. Would need some bays marked out and probably some lighting the cost of which could be negotiated with SSE. With a great new relationship built with SSE this could be developed at some point into a major shirt sponsorship deal. With shirt and car park revenue to saints from SSE could be 250,000 per annum. Saints also agree to purchase gas and electric from SSE. Giving SSE marketing team a belter of an advertising slogan, "SSE the power behind the saints" So what ideas can we come up with to help generate new income for saints.

    Ask Brown a question

    Did you get the training gear and t-shirts back from Stevie?

    Probably a bit of A and a bit of B. IME very few organisations outside of FMCG, FS and to an extent tourism do proper marketing. This is especially true in Scotland because we've got so few scale businesses making or selling products, and it's even more true of family businesses. I don't think there's a right or wrong answer because I don't necessarily believe that the slow decline in bums on seats at McDairmid is necessarily something the club can spend themselves out of. If I was a marketing-sceptical, risk-averse MD with a massive ego and experience from an entirely different business model, I think I'd be hard to convice.

    We agree. If we want a more impactful, strategic marketing operation we would need to upgrade the function. I don't want to do Mr Brown a disservice, but I don't think he seems inclined to invest in that. Maybe he's right too, there may not be any real commercial upside for an enhanced marketing team.

    Very, very junior roles. That's 'Marketing Assistant' job description stuff.

    Sorry, what's behind a paywall? Saints TV wasn't set up by the club, it's a bought in product, the same as other clubs such as Livingston etc. It's hosted on a different URL, uses the same style sheets etc. Before, the club used to do thier own videos (Ross - agree he was good). I think if the current model puts interview videos behind a paywall, but that paywall gives access to home and away games for international fans, that's a very good trade off.
