Allyjambo 25th January 2016 at 1:07 pm #Saw this on twitter and it would appear the bears are moving from a ‘buy our way to success’ model to one of ‘WATP so we will win the SPL with whatever journeymen we sign’!
“8m8 minutes ago Why are the media so desperate for Rangers to overspend. Are they worried we sign a team of English bargains and cruise the SPL next year?”

AJ,

The first question that popped into my (cynical) head was who authored this tweet? Could it be a Level 5 or similar softening up of the bears for the realisation that no-one has been or can be signed?

Unfortunately so untrusting have I become that ulterior motives are sought in almost anything Govan-related.

And did Private Eye not call her “Mariella Brastrap” at one point? Shurely shome mishtake?

Two wrongs and a right
Tris,

I’m not sure if the writer quite grasps that this is not a site set up to provide the world with the wise sayings, and at times intolerance of alternative viewpoints, of one particular person e.g. JJ.

I believe that what we provide is a broad church (can I say that?) that brings experience and knowledge to bear on whatever issues arise.

The articles are a useful starter for discussion but within a very short time are overtaken by events and related discourse. This is moderated but in my experience posters are pretty well free to express any view they wish. Unlike other sites however SFM is not a forum for personal attacks or intemperate language thus hopefully encouraging everyone to participate.

I’d also suggest that the writer in question be invited to submit his or her own article for constructive discussion. Perhaps other posters would like to see such rapid-fire articles become a feature of SFM. Let’s talk about it and see if it is feasible.

(Whatever) Scottish Football needs SFM. 


Two wrongs and a right
In PMB’s latest news from the word-mines there appears this intriguing snippet :

“Indeed, the storyline for this transfer window could not get more engaging for the audience if they had Mr. Warburton quietly sounding out Newcastle United for some loan players.

Of course, that would be preposterous…”

From my past experience PMB tends to take great care in how he words his pearls of wisdom. I found it extremely interesting that he spoke of “Mr. Warburton” rather than RIFC or TRFC.

If indeed such a thing had happened, surely Mr. Warburton wouldn’t act without sanction from above? Perhaps they are all great pals again.

Otherwise it would suggest that Mr. Warburton is either becoming extremely desperate or somewhat semi-detached from his lords and masters.

Doubtless all will be revealed as we approach deadline day and the warchest is burst open….

PS Is The Herald onto this yet? Mr Lindsay, are you looking in?

Perhaps we should send the SFA to Iceland on a fact finding mission.

JIMBO, You should have stopped at the word ‘Iceland’.

EASYJAMBOJUNE 11, 2018 at 18:26A simpler way round the TOP ruling is for Club 1872 to use their funds (subs + any loans) to make their own offer to BPH, Margarita, and the Easdales shares at 20p a share.If accepted, that would probably be enough to avoid King receiving sufficient acceptances to exceed the 50% threshold.Club 1872 would in effect be pre-empting King’s offer, by proxy.  ========================================
It would also mean that none of the money donated by it’s members would be going to the PLC instead it would be going to “enemies”.
Would even King be that blatant in giving two fingers to the support.
========================================
Isn’t that what happened before with the MASH/Ashley shares?

Scottish Football needs some good investigative financial journalists at the moment….

The question that springs to my mind is what are the shares worth and how have they been valued?

Claiming that this is a fantastic opportunity for fans without actually presenting any evidence to back that up seems inordinately reckless bearing in mind the past financial histories of the current and past clumpanies.

Hopefully a reasonable synopsis :

Action is underway by BDO against the Former Joint Administrators who have not responded to queries as hoped. A claim of £28m was issued on 9 February 2017 and litigation is ongoing.

A claim has been made by The Rangers FC Group Limited (previously known as Wavetower, owned by by Worthington Group). Craig Whyte was formerly a director of this company. 

Henderson & Jones who are a specialist purchaser of claims and litigation from insolvent companies, has been appointed as a director of Wavetower and continues to pursue the claim. 

BDO have previously rejected this company’s claims but legal action continues over what is understood to be an increased claim of £18m.
