Has anyone else been receiving these anonymous screenshots of people saying Milne is leaving next week along with Fraser and other board members?

 

To be replaced by Cormack and unknown others.

Aye and the Westhill white elephants getting ditched.

 

Chance would be a fine thing.  Large pinch of salt required

yeah I've just seen it now. Apparently it's Cormack and the son of the owner of Alanta Falcons, dad is worth 5.5 Billion.

 

Also sent a separate one saying Cormack has bought out Milne with another Yank(probably above) and new stadium not going ahead as they want to re develop Pittodrie....

 

Who knows

Also mentions that Craig Brown, Fraser, Skinner are all out, Wicks stays and plans to redevelop Pittodrie, announcement Monday.

Everyone seems to be getting it from the same source, I'll believe it when it happens.

I hope it is partly true.

 

Would be great to get rid of Milne and Brown and Fraser.

Surely if they were planning on ditching the stadium, they could have held off the Training Facilities and moved that closer to Pittodrie!

Why?  Makes absolutely f*ck all difference.  Players leave house and drive to training ground/players leave house and drive to Pittodrie

Milne brown Fraser won't go that would mean we could get a chairman and directors who would put money into the club get a new manager and the right players who could win the league year after year and Milne the Rangers fan wouldn't want that to happen.

Why, makes no difference whatsoever where the training facilities are in relation to the Pittodrie.

Heard the same rumours myself.

Cormack to take over and a raft of the board going.

We're going to be backed by the American $$$$.

Whether or not this is a good thing remains to be seen.

Plenty wealthy yanks have invested in, or bought football clubs and it's all went to shit.

Would you take an American Investor, a couple of cups in the bag then years of turmoil, ala Rangers and Hearts

 

or

 

Plod along like we are, with maybe the odd cup final and a cup win every 10-20 years?

Difference here is potentially a dons fan in power alongside him! He surely wouldn’t put the club at risk!?

There's no need for the turmoil if done sensibly

 

Put it this way Cormack can't do any worse a job than Milne has over his tenure

We've gotta try something. At the moment it seems like there is little point in our existence.
