Without meaning to cause debate…. by Patto_1989

…was it not Scobbie who came up with the plans to originally sell the McCain, and then use the money generator for a new ground (similar in size and shape to FLS), and clear the clubs debts?

From my own understanding at the time, it was the council who blocked these plans to sell the ground, effectively killing the club, before waiting a number of years before lifting the covenant and selling on the land for a decent profit.

For all people might believe Scobbie was the ender of SFC, from seeing quite a bit behind the scenes at the time, he was actually a very intelligent man who worked hard to try and save the club.
