Comment on On Grounds for Judicial Review by jimbo.

. Here’s some tweets about the Champions League, as there are still a few misconceptions about this season, and next seasons new format.
 Radio Scotland were wrong about next season. The Champions Route is not being abolished, and qualifying will still be seeded.
From next season clubs will no longer have 20% of their national coefficient added to their total. This benefits Celtic.
 No, our ’67 big Cup win doesn’t mean we get bonus points as part of our coefficient for seeding. UEFA changed their mind on this.
 It will, however, be added to our coefficient when used to distribute CL revenue between the clubs. Every little helps.
Yes, the number of places in next seasons Champions route will drop from 5 to 4, and yes we will face 4 qualifying rounds, not 3.
Yes, the Swiss and Dutch champion will now have to qualify. In effect, there are more and better teams going for 1 less spot.
Yes, we will lose 16 points from our coefficient, due to our 12/13 last 16 appearance no longer counting in our coefficient.
That means there is a real possibility that if we’re in the CL next year, we could be unseeded in the final qualifying round.
————————————————————–
These answers were from questions regarding Celtic in particular but it gives an idea of the changes to qualifying for CL.

OOps my source seems to have got it wrong.
“Celtic last night completed a deadline deal for teenage PSG striker Odsonne Edouard, while also keeping their own first-team squad intact. ”

“RIFC : 31 officers / 25 resignations
TRFC : 22 officers / 19 resignations”(Redlichtie)

Remarkable for a firm/club only 6 years old.

I don’t have the data to back up my feelings that this is unusual for a small to medium sized business.  But I did have a look at the Celtic FC website to see the ‘lifespan’ of their directors.

Ian Bankier 7 years
Thomas Allison 17 years
Sharon Brown 1.5 years
Dermot Desmond 23 years
Peter Lawwell 15 years
Christopher McKay 2 years
Brian Wilson 13 years.

Quite a difference!

If I was a potential investor potential director, senior operational manager, partner etc etc I would be asking questions.  Like were the people who left pushed/shoved?, did they run?,  did they walk away in quiet resignation?

The directors are a bit important.  Is the need for soft loans a determining factor or relevant experience for appointment?
Conceiving and determining short to long term strategy is crucial to a firm, get that wrong and your heading for doom.
What is the strategy of TRFC?  We can forget the sound bites and anything that comes from Dave King, as has been proven on countless occasions.

It would appear to be:
‘Back where we belong’
‘Our rightful place’
‘We are the Peepul’
‘Stop Celtic getting 10 in a row’

The plan?

Soft loans & Close Brothers.

Timescales?

Now!

This season for instance, 2nd place, at least one cup, group stages of the Europa League.  Next season?  The sky’s the limit.  We think in days not months.  Months not years.

Operationally it is just as bad. Think of their PR department.  Think of everything regarding their retail operation.  Management appointments.  Asset management.  Budgetary control.

The only thing positive you might say about them is they have developed a great working relationship with the media and the governing bodies.

So all is not lost.

ps, wonder when the next change in directorships tales place.  Going by past experience, can’t be long now!

“In the short life of these two companies we have had an avalanche of appointments and resignations :
RIFC : 31 officers / 25 resignations TRFC : 22 officers / 19 resignations”
(Redlichtie)

Those figures are astonishing.  No wonder there is so much turmoil.

How can there be a viable vision, a plan, a goal, without any or next to no continuity?

Finnmccool,  I was wondering what you were talking about!  I’ve just heard our sprinklers went off unexpectedly in the 2nd half!   I missed it.

That’s what I get for mocking the Ibrox ones!  06

New pitch at Celtic Park looking brilliant.  Unlike that carpet at Kilmarnock last night!

Had a wee chuckle looking at the sprinklers in action at CP, was hoping they would remember to turn them off before the 2nd half kicked off.  You wonder why?

Well on Thursday night at Ibrox the players were ready to go for 2nd half but the sprinklers kept going.  Players and match officials hanging around looking puzzled!  Eventually someone switched them off or sorted the problem out and they kicked off.  What a riddy.  Live on BT too!  They just can’t catch the breaks these days.  Mind you they got a soft penalty in injury time.

3-0 Celtic.

That should have read his or her soul.  Can’t let eg. Thatcher be forgotten.
