some pretty serious punters on other bb's getting in this morning. Just saw that Tenby Deckchair over on sharesforum topped up this morning. Must go and ask him why? Perhaps it's just that last week's drop has made them very cheap?

Yep. Guess the Vida situation has raised two concerns. One among investors wondering if the same could happen here. And others worried that GOAL might be about to splash out on buying too many of Vida's (13) sites in haste, incurring debt in doing so.. Acquiring that number of sites one by one over time would be good news. Being compelled to take some or all in an immediate job lot maybe not so good. Depends on whether they are easily and quickly made profitable, or whether they require extensive effort and investment to do so. The story yesterday was: Vida calls in receivers after £30m Murray sale A SCOTS Five-a-side football company has plunged into administration just a year after Rangers chairman David Murray sold it for £30 million. Vida Sports Limited, which runs a centre in Livingston, is believed to have racked up huge losses since severing ties with the Murray International Metals supremo. Thousands of five-a-side players across the country have been left in limbo and are unsure if their leagues will continue to operate. Bosses at the Edinburgh-based firm decided to call in the administrators in a last-ditch attempt to save the company, which is thought to have run up debts of around £15.5 million. As well as its centre beside Livingston FC’s Almondvale ground, Vida has complexes in Aberdeen, Dunfermline, and Paisley plus nine other sties south of the Border. Colin Dempster, of accounting firm Ernst and Young, has been appointed as the joint administrator and is trying to find a buyer. He said: "It appears this company tried to expand too quickly. "Its roll-out strategy appears to have been too aggressive with not enough attention paid to the core nitty-gritty of profit and loss. "In saying that, we’re hopeful of a good quick sale preferably from one of its major rivals." Each new Vida complex is estimated to cost at least £1.6m and there are also state-of-the-art gym facilities at four of the centres. Companies who could be interested in taking over the sites include PowerLeague and Goals.

Award for Parkdean chairman Jan 31 2005 By The Journal (icNewcastle) One of the most successful business leaders in the North-East has won a prize in the Quoted Company Awards in London. Graham Wilson, chairman of Gosforth-based Parkdean Holidays, beat off some high profile competition to be named as Non-Executive Director of the Year. While Parkdean has flourished under Mr Wilson's chairmanship to become one of the top holiday park operators in the United Kingdom, it was his work with Goals Soccer Centres, based in Hamilton, Scotland that won him recognition on this occasion. The operator of five-a-side football centres has enjoyed a meteoric rise to prominence, culminating in a stock market listing at the end of last year. Goals price has now reached 117.5p, almost double its 62p price when floated. Mr Wilson, 51, was recognised for helping with deals and contracts, for encouraging good corporate governance, and contributing to strong financial performance. Such well known figures as Lord MacLaurin of Knebworth, chairman of Vodafone and former chairman of the English Cricket Board, were also nominated in Mr Wilson's category. He said: "I was delighted to win, but as much for the guys at Goals as for myself. "The company has been a real success story. "I joined the board in January 2002, and it's gone from six to 12 centres in that period. "They are going to open a centre on Teesside in the spring. "If you get the right business, with the right management, and with the right story to tell about future prospects, the City is gagging for stuff like that. Mr Wilson said he had contributed a knowledge of the City to Goals, as well as experience of dealing with venture capitalists and other facets of City life like financial PR. He is no stranger to award wins after Parkdean was named Company of the Year in the Tyneside and Northumberland Business Awards last year.

Have been watching these for sometime as I've bought shares in the company (GLD) that supplies their software - what's good for the Goose.............:- Gladstone MRM shoots a winner Goals Soccer Centres, a new generation of all-weather floodlit 5-a-side soccer venues, are rapidly expanding having already established 11 centres nationwide with plans in place for 9 more over the next two years. "Goals Soccer Centres develop, operate and fund next generation soccer centres across the UK on school, Local Authority and private sites. Up to 60% of the booking times are made available on a free of charge basis to local schools and community groups" comments Bill Gow, Goals Soccer Centres. Gladstone MRM began its relationship with Goals Soccer Centres 3 years ago with the installation of Clubman NT and has recently upgraded Goals to MRM.plus2 in all 11 centres with plans of installation in the proposed sites. "We chose Gladstone MRM because of its good track record In both the public and private sectors with its well recognised and highly functional product. We were seeking a company with whom we could form a long-term partnership and have the ability to contribute to the development of areas of the product specific to our business" Bill Gow, Goals Soccer Centres. Goals has experienced the advantages of upgrading to MRM.plus2, in particular, gaining the opportunity to implement MRM.datamine and MRM.analyser. These products are now playing an essential role within Goals Soccer Centres to provide bespoke reporting and up to the minute information to manage their facilities, chase outstanding payments, and manage their pitch bookings. "We use MRM.datamine to automate the billing for arrears and final demands. When a payment is due, MRM.datamine automatically mail merges customer details into Microsoft Word to create a bill. If the payment is not received, a bill reminder is created and if necessary, a final demand. This has given standardisation across the whole operation, has reduced administration time, improved accuracy and has resulted in customers paying bills on time" Bil Gow, Goals Soccer Centres. Goals Soccer Centres have greatly benefited from the faster processing capabilities of MRM.plus2, particularly important to Goals where on Monday morning, they consistently experience a high volume of complex multiple bookings. This has allowed reception to give a better customer service during these busy periods. Goals Soccer Centres are currently liaising with Gladstone MRM's Business Analysts in order to incorporate their functionality requirements into the future development of MRM.plus2. They are also planning to centralise their data through thin client technology in order to further benefit from reduced administration costs and protect their data. 6 July 2004 (UK, Australia, Ireland)
