“Was it not suggested somewhere (Phil?) that any transfer fee for Lewis Macleod would go straight into Mike Ashley’s pocket to pay off his emergency loan?”

yes – he just tweeted a reminder about it this morning:

“Phil MacGiollaBhain ‏@Pmacgiollabhain 2 hours ago

Lewis McLean to Brentford for €1m?
Now remember that extra £1m Big Mike lent to Sevco to bring it up to £3m?
Well that’s where it’s going. “

Sarver says: “I think Rangers is a gem. It just needs some love and it needs to be polished.” and, apparently, its “a treasure in the community”… !!! Can I have some of what he’s been smoking?

My over-riding impression is of the dam creaking.

That’s my impression too – cracks starting to appear.. seepage turning into a trickle… hopefully when it bursts it will sweep away the existing SFA, SPFL, and SMSM with it…

A Sanity Clause for Xmas?
Three things I really like about TSFM, which IMO set it apart from most of the Scottish Football scene:

1) questioning minds – with the intellects and hearts of posters generally triumphing over the emotions that so often rule football supporters
2) fellowship – across fans of many clubs from many backgrounds
3) humour – which often has me rolling in the floor. By comparison, it is very noticeable that those who seek to manipulate our game, and the knuckle-draggers who seek to get their way through threats and violence.

IMO the primeval and aggressive element of the bears – and the similar elements to be found in many club’s supporters – represent the worst aspects of the old paradigm in our society, and we should stand up to such people fearlessly, as we expose their ignorance and hypocracy. Meanwhile TSFM blazes a trail to a new paradigm, where followers of all clubs can join together with respect for each other and for the concept and maintenance of sporting integrity – where fans of all clubs can enjoy the game without any of the sectarian or supremacist baggage of the past.

Scottish football needs a strong TSFM (and – with deference to Red Lichtie – a strong Arbroath).

From Dave King’s statement:

As much as we try and practice governance and as much as we have got a strong separation between the holding company board and the football club, which is a different company completely…

If even if Ashley didn’t care, he might sell more season books or merchandise if he pretended he did. If he wanted to be cynical about it, he could deliver the odd Greenesque ‘everyone’s against us’ speech and watch the effect on the cash registers. The fact that he doesn’t bother must be even more of a worry.

One almost gets the impression that Mr Ashley doesn’t give two hoots for the Ibrox faithful… Rather, as someone posted here earlier, it is as if he has a grudge that he is venting – like he wants to humiliate them at every opportunity (the AGM being a classic example).

I think it is genuinely only now dawning on the authorities and media that those that they have cravenly assisted into position may not actually have rangers best interests at heart…

Yes – far too late to save their situation IMO. It seems to me that, in effect, the authorities and media have both been working against the interests of ALL fans of Scottish football, including Rangers fans. Whether they have been acting out of fear, bias, ignorance, greed, self-interest or whatever, I feel sure that both the authorities and media will reap the rewards of their misjudgement in due course, as those that they have been duping finally waken up.
