I was totally underwhelmed by Regan’s comments on Sportsound at the weekend trying to justify the semi final debacle. Do the SFA not understand how badly damaged their reputation is and how critical it is for them to be seen to act transparently in an impartial way? Are they stupid, incompetent or contemptuous of supporters? I’m not sure which option is the most concerning!
The three choices are not mutually exclusive
An Honest Game? Convince Us.
Re continuity on incorporation. I think everyone would probably be happy to agree there IS continuity if the incorporation is a SOLVENT reconstruction but there would be a break if it was an INSOLVENT reconstruction. ???

Regarding history of Club/Company. Is it not a really simple principle, i.e. The history stays with the debts.
No amount of word twisting can overcome this basic fairness, which would cover the behaviour of all companies and football clubs.
Airdrie can use the name Airdrieonians, since the liquidation process is complete but they still don’t have the history of Airdrieonians, Clydebank or Kilbowie Juniors because of the debts.
They are entitled to the history of Clydebank. The current Airdrieonians are the same company as the original Clydebank.

If 50% of the people have to take up the offer then how does that defend the position of small shareholders, which is the point of the rule as I understand it.
It’s not 50% of the people. It’s enough shares to take the concert parties holding to 50%+1. If they already have 35.5% or thereabouts, it’s less than 15% of all shares; about 24% of the shares out there that they don’t already hold. He will undoubtedly try to stiff Margarita/Blue whatsisname etc by trying to claim they can’t trade their shares, so that could end up in court again
Enough is enough
I’d like to see statistics regarding the ground covered by the various players last night. I lost count of the number of relatively tight TV shots where 3 or fewer Celtic players were ‘covered’ by 8 or more outfield Bayern players. They were everywhere

I wonder how DK’s legals satisfied themselves that they would get their fees? Is it the practice for QCs to ask for money up front? Or will King be able to claim on the ‘directors’ liability’ insurance cover?
John, I think PMG has blogged that he asked the RIFC board to cover his legal expenses and they said no. As for Director’s liability, I’m not sure it would cover this

Alisdair Lamont not at court today
Hopefully someone else will live tweet it. If I had known I might have gone down there myself, being unexpectedly at home
