Pure legal is a different business structure from the Pure business group and should therefore not affect it.

A number of confused reports have been out there but Pure sports consultancy is not so Huddersfield appear safe.

Not that I'm particularly worried but Huddersfield will be fine. Their previous Chairman (who genuinely has lots of money) has said he'll step back up if required.

Sad for all the staff at Pure losing their jobs.

Hopefully we are not too reliant on the Ground sponsorship.

PH has other business interests and presumably has carefully protected his personal position.

Might we see his return to SFC?

Hopefully not. We’ve not even finished clearing up the last mess he left us in.

A lot of the financial mess was left by Natalie, but Phil was ultimately responsible.

The narrative at the time was that Phil acknowledged that responsibility by paying off all debts outstanding when he left. He also covered the shortfall in the funding for the pitch improvements although I don’t know who paid for the remedial work that was required the close season after. He also sponsored via the Stadium naming deal for 3 (?) seasons. I have absolutely no idea what mess he left behind that we are yet to clear up. I would definitely be interested to know.

I'm sure it was stated at the time that the cost of remedial work to the pitch was met by the contractor due to faults with the original work.

Under the circumstances perhaps some sort of Statement from SFC clarifying the position of our club in light of the developments would be helpful..... It at least would stop the 2nd guessing game from those concerned.

Agree with all the above Redrobe.
Ian Kyle has done many interviews for the benefit of supporters.
In either the last interview (or the one before) he said that he had been in talks with PH to renew a deal but then the break due to Covid-and that he would be looking to resume discussions.Am I the only one to remember that-or maybe some people didn't see that? I wouldn't think with this news that this would now be likely to happen though do you? Who knows in the future though? If Huddersfield Town have been assured that their isn't a problem then I think it's highly unlikely that SFC will have one? If their was anything to tell SFC supporters I have no doubt that Ian Kyle wouldn't be backward in coming forward to say so.
Absolutely no need for any statement to be made as far as I'm concerned.
Big fuss from the anti PH brigade as usual.

That is my recollection as well, that the contractor paid as he was responsible for the faults

Regardless of the current situation with Pure I don't think we've any right to expect PH to renew any sponsorship. If he does, great, but we should always be prepared for the need to seek alternatives.

Sponsors come and go. The only problem we might have is if Pure were paying us way over and above what we might be able to replace it with.

Phil Hodgkinson's 3 year deal at the time was generous to the extreme in my mind, and I certainly wouldn't have been expecting anything further in the future.To hear then in one of Ian's interview's that he would be looking to pick up talks after Covid, to me was a pleasant surprise, but as I said I would be amazed if anything develops now with the "admin" news.
Some of the reaction on here is so predictable from some who have probably stopped watching the football club along time ago.
I'm more concerned with matters on the pitch- that we can get a fit Connor Woods up and running on a regular basis to get the team further up the league.

share your perspective yellowfever, Liam did say that Connor is recovering ok and we will also have JB back for Leamington assuming no further postponements, along with Russ Benjamin and George Newell coming back into the frame in the coming weeks.

Things are looking fairly good for making progress upwards I think. Every club in this league can give you a nasty bite, but we've gone toe to toe with all the top sides so far and have a chance to get some wins under our belt before 2022 arrives.
