Comment on Two wrongs and a right by The Cat NR1.

upthehoops 25th January 2016 at 11:46 pm #I don’t think anyone will be genuinely surprised at what has happened with the latest SFA shambles. I assume they will actually confirm the next ground they select is available for the chosen date. Despite my dim view of them I did also assume they would have done just that with New Douglas Park. However let’s not lose sight of the fact it is way down the list of SFA wrongdoing, especially over these past four years. 
=============================================
It may be way down the list, but it is symptomatic of the ineptitude of the SFA.
It strikes me as being bizarre that there was such a long time between the original announcement and the Hamilton statement. Has anyone in the press sought to discover the reason?
The statement released by the SFA on Friday seemed unnecessarily long and detailed, given the usual silence that emanates from the bunker. If only they could issue such a lengthy and detailed statement to clarify the status of the club purporting to be Rangers that currently utilises the facilities vacated by the former club of that name.

Well that’s put the cat amongst the budgies.

“Tom English: Rangers recruitment, Dundee Utd struggles”
Another Tom English cracker.
“It can not all be about youth, though. If it is indeed the Premiership for them next season then you’re reminded of King’s view that they must light some kind of fire under Celtic’s rear-end right from the get-go. They would not have to take the champions all that close to the wire, but they would want to be competitive for second.
Losing to Celtic would be palatable as long as they were not bested by Aberdeen, Hearts, St Johnstone, Ross County and Inverness into the bargain. It’s not in the DNA of Rangers fans to stoically accept such a state of affairs.”
.
The reference to the Brentford player further down is hilarious, and deja vu from Scott Allan in the last transfer window.

tykebhoy 10th January 2016 at 4:16 pm #Just a thought have sky shot their goldenchild in the foot by allowing the bbc to show what was on paper the tie of the round being the clubs occupying 2nd and 3rd spots in the league.  I watched the game at Tynie last night on the “cooncil telly” and I think it probably matched it’s on paper billing.  Meanwhile Sky show a 2nd tier team host a mid table 3rd tier team.
I’ve seen estimates suggesting 20,000 were in Govan, although from the couple of minutes I watched I think that may be optimistic.  Would the walk up have been much bigger had the match not been televised and is that loss in revenue matched by the tv money?  Sky also chose Celtic at Stranraer which looks to be a capacity crown and was probably more likely to have an upset given Ambrose in defence and a goalkeeping debut.  Had Sky paired this with the Hearts v Dons  then I suspect the BBC may have chosen something other than the Ibrox match.
=========================
I thought that BBC Scotland had first dibs on live Scottish Cup coverage?

Mark Warburton would surely be  shocked at the lack of maximum respect shown to the cup holders, and I would have thought that Stirling Albion v Inverness Caley Thistle was of far more interest to the neutral than Sevco Scotland at home to Cowdenbeath. Having said that, it doesn’t fit into Sky’s paid up membership of the liquidation survival cult, and there was a classic example in the commentary of the Stranraer v Celtic game as Ian Crocker managed to shoehorn a reference to “The Old Firm” into his narrative.

It’s nice to see that the BBC is carolling from the SkySports songsheet in the above article.
“OF” mentioned twice and some top level liquidation denial thrown in for good measure.

Any chance of this happening in Scotland?

What do the various Rangers have to show for their loans fundamentally hee haw I believe. Nothing has been done to build potential long term income streams via improved facilities or some other projects. It seems that the assets have declined in value and future fixed costs are likely to rise in the form of deferred maintenance. There may be a baldrickian plan and opportunity available for some rich tax pauchler but I do not know what it is -perhaps some advice should be sought.
===================================
I suspect that rather than one of Baldrick’s cunning plans, they will go with the tried and tested Earl Haig’s underpants over the head and pencils up the nostrils. And we all know how that ended up.
It wasn’t the admininistration and liquidation to end all administrations and liquidations though. Deja vu?

Using EBTs incorrectly in order to reduce your tax was never a “loophole” it was classic tax avoidance.
Tax avoidance is not and never has been perfectly acceptable as some people would have you believe. That is tax management.
Tax avoidance is using a legitimate scheme, incorrectly, for a purpose which was never intended.
Investing in an ISA is tax management.
Using an EBT to receive contractual payments is tax avoidance.
====================================
That’s heading into tax evasion territory.

And if they can do that without our contribution..” _____________ But fear not! The 4-year-old club will get a bob or two from the friendly with RB Leipzig in January, and, the rumour mill grinds out, a lucrative sponsorship deal from the owners of that 7-year-old club, none other than Red Bulls.it.  Possibly even a buy-in!
============================================================
Would they bring out a special OrangeBull to mark the occasion?
 
500M potential worldwide customers could generate a huge turnover, and with the club/company/engine room subsidiary getting 1p cashback for every 1,000,000 unit sales of OrangeBull that could solve the funding plan (or is it business plan?) gap almost overnight.
 
I’m sure Neil Patey would confirm that to be the case.
