Sorry to see you go Reiver. Your energy and comittment will be missed.

I can understand why you may feel TSFM has a Celtic bias because any criticism of Celtic is pounced upon pretty quickly by certain posters and mimimised. I’ve had some experience of this in the past for raising some questions about Celtic’s comduct in the SFA debacle and the silence surrounding their role in previously stitching up Scottish football in collusion with old Rangers, not to mention they too operated an EBT scheme (admittedly only for one player and it was closed down pretty sharpish and HMRC were paid what was due)

However, I can understand the reaction from Celtic fans on here when they come to the defence of their club because that tit for tat mentality has been part of the “Old Firm” psyche as long as I can remember. Its hard not to get all defensive when that’s what the norm has been because you always feel you’re being challenged by “the establishment”.

The anti Irish stuff you mistakenly got involved in which led to your leaving was clear trolling by Motor Red. He was on some kind of wind up and from what I read of his posts it had a clear agenda that was a negative emotional reaction to Celtic having Irish heritage and not Scottish. It was silly talk really but obviously thinking like that still exists. For the record my great granparents were from NI and Eire. I’m proud that two people from across a divide were able to come together.

Cluster One, I doubt BP would have a confidentiality clause, but you never know! Seriously though, if McClair was forced to have a cc, what inference can we draw from that? It can only mean that the SFA is worried that he could make them look incompetent, no?

In my experience, if the parting of the ways, in a professional environment, is not really mutual them it is not uncommon for there to be a Confidentiality Clause as a condition of the pay off.

I doubt he’ll be saying much about his time at the SFA but reading between the lines something is clearly not right betwen the SFA and the clubs and their respective “visions” for the advancement of the game in Scotlandshire.

In the meantime short of a plan for improvement our national teams and clubs continue to get battered in Europe. There must be a way out of this. Please, someone tell me there is.

It’s interesting that almost all of the statements about where the money goes from the sale of merchandise says that profits are donated to the relevanrt benificiaries. There’s a lot of deductions before one ever gets to a profit.

If Lion brand is selling goods without the permission of Help for Heroes and using their brand for pecuniary advantage and then the proceeds hit Club 1872 and then onto the Club are the proceeds not derived from crime and should the Police be investigating?

I’d estimate King’s exposure as between £2m-£4m.
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
I’d estimate it at 12 months in the pokey.

BOGS DOLLOXDECEMBER 22, 2017 at 21:00 There must be institutional investors who would grab the 20p because they need to make some sort of recovery on their initial investment.I bet there are a few individual investors who are a bit cheesed off with Dave. ————– Is there anyone left who may have 1p shares from the start? 19p profit right there
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
Didn’t the 1 pees later buy in for the same number of shares at a higher value thus making their average price paid much higher?

It’s a no brainer for the non emotionally involved at 20p.

Just one thing that confuses me.
If people are claiming that the shares are currently trading at 27p, it’s a nonsense but just for the sake of the question.
Do they think that if they double the number of shares available then they will stay at the same price.
It’s a share in a business ffs, surely if there are more of them issued then each one is worth less (or worthless in this case).
So let’s say here’s the scenario. You have shares in a business worth say 14p each. The business is making losses, every year. It’s £16m in debt, and admitting it’s going to lose more this year, and next. Predictions are of the business being £23m in debt, at least. It’s also a toxic brand, operating in a field (pardon the pun) which traditionally does not make money.
Someone comes along and offers you 20p for your shares, no questions asked, no haggling, a straight 20p a share.
You knock this back … really.

Bogs Dollox StevieBCDecember 22, 2017 at 18:29Guess that the CoS result could /should trigger a couple of events in the short-term;– King resigns from RIFC & – the auditors Campbell Dallas ‘do walking away’ ?You would think…?  +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++Their reputation is on the line. I would think ICAS practice regulation are keeping a close watch on this one._______________________________________________________ ICAS Practice Regulation only get upset when recalcitrant, (no, not “concomitant”) members, like me, fail to return meaningless checklists or forms in time. Please believe me…I have “got form” in this area…. Only when a serious complaint from “members of the public” is received, would any notice be taken…and minimum action result… Please remember, that ICAS members, at least 20 in number, have been involved in this whole RFC/MIH/TRFC/TRIFC omnishambles over the last 20 years or so….and….yup…a big fat zilch from the “public”… I rest my case….

Is it possible to complain anonymously? Or is it necessary to leave the country soon after complaining about “accounting concerns” ?

This is like fending of HMRC in the days when 1872 was a club.

Back then the chat to the HMRC was “Look guys can you hold off for a bit from chasing the Wee Tax Case liability because new owners have taken over and we need some time to sort it all out – youse will get your doh!”
I recall the Daily Record often insisted Mark Warburton was a really smart guy.
