On another matter it seems Mr Traynor has caused a bit of a rammy at Mark Warburtons presser this afternoon.You can see a small excerpt here
You can also watch the full thing on Sky News.
Oh dear.

Warburton totally undermined – in front of the SMSM and on TV – by an external PR contractor !

Feel a wee bit sorry for the guy.  

No respect shown to him by Traynor at all !  15

Phil suggesting that the stadium issues are becoming problematic,
and VAT returns issues.
Supplier invoice payments overdue.
The ‘best/highest paid’ TRFC player not playing – either on or off the field.
Cash flow issues.
A disillusioned MD.
An absent Chairman.
A seriously p!ssed-off team manager, [probably].
TRFC slipping towards mid-table mediocrity.
An unimpressed / impatient / unforgiving group of supporters.

The perfect storm ?

Shouldn’t gloat…  15

Phil’s latest suggests that the TRFC MD might be on a holiday, as he wasn’t around Ibrox today when Traynor was having his public meltdown.

Long-term sick leave taken due to the stresses of trying unsuccessfully to cut costs at Ibrox ?

Wouldn’t blame Robertson at all if that was indeed the case.

The signs of the roof caving in at Ibrox, [and metaphorically speaking as well 14 ], are there for all to see.

I’m guessing [?] the main reason that cup semi’s and finals are played at Hampden is to maximise the money made for the SFA & SPFL coffers.

It mibbees also helps – in the blazers’ wee minds at least – to justify the need for retaining such a universally unpopular and unsuitable stadium. 

In the interests of fairness and encouraging – and enabling – local kids to see big games, Hampden could be abandoned with cup games – and national games – simply rotated around Scotland, as necessary.
[Too radical I think for the bunker dwellers ?]

And based on the last 20+ years, why would anyone feel that we need a dedicated Scottish national football stadium anyway ?
The falling attendances for Scotland’s Hampden games cannot be helping SFA finances in particular ?

Just a wild idea…

But, what if King declared himself bankrupt?
[Well in a court recently, he did claim he was ‘penniless’].

Of course anyone who knows of the glib and shameless one would assume King would have assets hidden, or in his wife’s name – a la wee Bazza?

Would bankruptcy effectively kill off the TOP sanctions?

At this point it seems that King’s reputation is ruined in Scotland – and with the bears and even with the SMSM?

King’s time is up playing charades as ‘the Rangers saviour’, and he must – you would think – be thinking about preserving his remaining wealth as he approaches retirement…?  09

Mibbees after 20 years of failure, the national team and the SFA don’t deserve a dedicated, national stadium?

And Hampden is simply not worth keeping as a football venue for mainly sentimental reasons, IMO.

CO, I think Phil’s scoop about the manner of Nicholl’s appointment deserves a: Wow Just Wow!
It displays how dysfunctional the management structure at Ibrox has become, and you would think, it is a massive red flag.
[Apart from having no cash.]

I also have my fingers and toes crossed that in 2018 my £20 bet on TRFC finishes bottom 6 comes in – with the help of an Admin. event.

[Thanks to fellow Bampots for the tip: interestingly Sky wouldn’t accept a £50 bet for a 150/1 long shot…]

All the best for 2018 Bampots!

And just have to add this headline from the esteemed DR, so it must be true;

“Bluenoses out of joint as Rangers pub to be turned into gay sauna’s bar”

Couldn’t possibly comment on the article…but a couple of sentences did jump out as sounding familiar;

“…Annie Millers was one of Glasgow’s most hardcore Rangers haunts and it was a real shock for a lot of fans when it closed last year.
A lot of drinkers were hoping that someone might rescue the pub so it could reopen as it was before. This definitely won’t happen now…

Guessing it’s quiet as the Bampots have been out watching the footy…or getting dragged around the shops by their better half for the sales ?!

Wife told me last night about the Dembele ‘sale’.
Immediate reaction was that it was nonsense from the SMSM.

There ‘could’ be some truth in it: e.g. an off-the-record tip from either CFC or Dembele’s agent, perhaps to simply instigate a bidding war ?

But, my initial reaction to any big story is to always doubt the SMSM’s veracity: the lamb munchers were exposed a long time ago…and it’s a surprise that the DR in particular is still on sale in hard copy format. 

If he is sold for X millions, how will the SMSM / Level42 spin that as ‘bad news’ for CFC…and bad for Scottish football ?  22
