Would that be the same members of the public that pay to spin the turnstyles, and in turn, your wages?……..Bad show wee man !….Bad show.

CO, I’ll be generous and suggest that the national team manager has the same respect for Scottish mainstream sports media as people on here do.

Indeed UTH 07:14 – the list below from another film investment LLP could just as easily have been on the front page. Maybe not as high profile as the one used but the story printed smacks of agenda. And it’s not an agenda against all highly paid people who engage in aggressive tax avoidance. 

Barry Ferguson
Derek Whyte
Paddy Connolly
Dale Gordon
Gordon Durie
Darren Jackson

wottpi @ 17:29, you’re right, my gripe was with the media. Lee answered the question pretty clearly in his cameo appearance

As someone said on Sportsound last night we all know that Rhodes and McCromack have been sold for higher transfer fees than Chris Martin. We know they have consistently scored more goals than him throughout their careers. We all know that Griffiths (CL and Europa cup Experience) can score and S. Fletcher seems to be gaining a bit of form again. Nothing against the lad but Chris Martin seems no more of a candidate for an international striker than any of the aforementioned.

wottpi, from what I heard on that programme, there was no analysis by Kenny McIntyre or any of the studio panel as to why Chris Martin was chosen for the role against Lithuania, although there was plenty of proramme host led knee-jerk reaction about the result and an apparent determination that Strachan (no need to even bother using the man’s forename apparently) must go . There was a stunned silence when Steven Pressley was brought into the discussion and provided a cogent rationale for the tactical choice and suggested that Lithuania’s defensive set-up (sitting deep) would not be ideal for Lee Griffiths. The listener who raised the transfer fee figures may have got his facts right but he didn’t address the question either. My quibble isn’t with him though, it’s these so-called journalists and/or a BBC Scotland editorial choice to go for the provocative tabloid approach without any intelligence being applied. From what I heard, Steven Pressley, Stephen Thomson, Chic Young and Barry Ferguson weren’t comfortable with this and reasonably wanted a wider examination of why Scotland’s national teams (Anna Signeul’s charges excepted) struggle to qualify for major championships. Not surprisingly, the logical conclusion for all this was that those on the 6th floor at Hampden might have something to do with it.

I seem to recall that part of Dave King’s settlement with the South African Revenue Service was a  requirement that Mr King’s family repatriate business assets held overseas into South Africa. Has anyone any insight into how this sits with NOAL being BVI-based?

EJ, I’ve no cause to doubt you or Hearts directors or the company auditors. It’s a fact though that people will speculate on these matters, often getting things completely wrong, intentionally or simply through ignorance.

blu December 20, 2017 at 11:16 There is an element of truth in Tangoed’s assertion about the need for transparency though – I’m sure there’s plenty speculation on Jambos Kickback as to the identity of the mysterious benefactors. ===================== There is indeed plenty speculation on Jambos Kickback about the benefactor(s).
A couple of well informed posters have all but confirmed that the money has come from partners in an Edinburgh investment company.

EJ,
I’m sure that you and others closer to the club will have a very good idea who these people are but as long as the club is asked to keep their identities private there will be speculation and aspersions cast from the east of Edinburgh and further afield.

I’ll decline from commenting further, the majority of members here seem to think it is acceptable to conjecture that Hearts are being funded by the proceeds of crime.

For the avoidance of doubt Homunculus, I agree with your challenge to Tangoed – his subsequent response confirms it is simple speculation, possibly mischievous. My question was more focused on what might be considered as money laundering, tangential and less important than your challenge.

Homunculus, I don’t think that money laundering was referred to by Tangoed, no doubt they’ll respond to fully explain.
