    Comment on Bad Money? by StevieBC.

    Headline from The Sun;

     

    "12TH MAN? Rangers appear to have brought the number 12 shirt out of ‘retirement’

    David Fowler 11 Jul 2019, 15:19

    RANGERS appear to have brought the No12 jersey out of retirement. Gers announced in 2012 that they would dedicate the number to fans who supported the club through administration and liquidation…"

    ===================================

     

    Number 12 jersey for Club 12 ?

    Bad Money?
    Clickbait headline in the DR;

     

    "Rangers thumping Marseille while Celtic drew with Rennes has given Ibrox fans reason to believe – Hotline"

    =========

    Jeezo!

     

    Yes, because meaningless, kickabout friendlies – where the objective is not to get injured – is a reliable indicator for the season ahead.

     

    May as well avoid inconveniencing any of the other 41 senior clubs – and just handover the Treble to Ibrox now…

    enlightened


    Bad Money?
    When the Rangers liquidation process has been completed…

     

    will there be a huge, celebratory party at Ibrox – for screwing over its creditors including HMRC?

    …or will there be radio silence at Ibrox and across the SMSM?

     

    In which case, IMO, all other Scottish football fans should have a date marked in the calendar…

    to celebrate the demise of the biggest cheating club in Scottish history.


    Bad Money?
    Can't imagine TRFC is bothered about any potential admin / registration errors.

    Bryson will be on the case to generate some original BS to baffle UEFA, if required.

     

    And this 'potential' transfer for TRFC of a player supposedly rated at c.£4M to £4.5M is curious indeed.

    From what the Internet Bampots know as fact – from the prior years' RIFC/TRFC accounts, the current Close loan, the lawsuits piling up etc. – TRFC doesn't have a 'proverbial pot'.

     

    The SMSM copy/paste information in this case seems a bit more specific.

    So, how is TRFC going to spin this?

    Player was simply greedy in his personal terms?

     

    IF TRFC actually buys a real player for c.£4M I will have to just give up trying to understand what the hell is really going on with the Ibrox finances.

    Ex Ludo,

    yes, more obscene flaunting of an organisation's wealth – for the benefit of the blazers at the very top of their particular tree / trough.

    And this seems to reflect the increasing likelihood that the only sports on the planet which can be regarded as honest are those played at true, amateur level

    …without the malignant influence of money and business to distort the basic principles of participation.

    wink

    Shirley, Gerrard's advisers are frantically searching for a new club down south?

    He's had an OK rookie season – and his stock could be as high as it can ever get with TRFC.

     

    He is limited to Bosmans and loanees to improve his squad, and deliver silverware.  Even a highly experienced manager might struggle to satisfy Ibrox expectations with such meagre resources.

     

    CFC is spending £3M+ on a teenager with a lot of potential, (…has he actually signed yet?).

    TRFC simply can't compete with that level of investment.

     

    If Gerrard doesn't get his team to overachieve next season, he will be unceremoniously booted out of Ibrox.

    I'm guessing his contract would have a break clause after his first season?

    Now might be his best/only opportunity to jump on the managerial merry-go-round down south?

    StevieBC@10.52 https://twitter.com/heavidor/status/1141934617546633218?s=21 Never mind the millions landing at Firhill, it’s all about the “big data” analytics.

    =========================

    Ah, but Ex Ludo, I fear that these investors could be onto plums.

    Yes, Big Data and continuously tweaked and refined algorithms, variables and weightings does have a place in sports – as proved in the States.

    But, in this scenario with Patrick Thistle, I would suggest that NO algorithms could account for the vagaries of Scottish football.

    Outright corruption, fixed cup draws, dodgy refs, 4 penalties for one team, inconsistent refereeing decisions, inconsistent disciplinary decisions, etc…

    Too many outliers in Scottish football. 

     

    And just what would an Americans make of the SFA or SPFL?

    They would be taking the blazers to Court on a very regular basis, and exploiting every dodgy precedent set by RFC/TRFC!

    Headline from The Mail;

    "Partick's new Moneyball owners could have seismic implications for the Glasgow club.

    • it could turn the world upside down for Thistle fans
    • Partick Thistle are in talks about a takeover with a billionaire-led consortium
    • Entrepreneur Chien Lee already owns French side Nice and English side Barnsley
    • The implications for the Glasgow club could well be seismic long term
    • They are not Sheikh Mansour but will bring highly-desired stability to Firhill

    Hmmm…

    A billionaire… interested in buying a financially strapped, Scottish club…?

    cheeky

    Ha!

    Absolutely, Ex Ludo.

     

    VAR has indeed confirmed that Lawwell had actually moved several yards away from the biscuit tin whilst negotiations were in play with Turnbull's agent.

     

    Lawwell was booked for timewasting, had to retreat 10 yards nearer to the tin, and negotiations were restarted.

    Or not. enlightened

     

    Jeezo, IF this is true and CFC IS back in for Turnbull…they better get him signed this time!
