Twopanda

I was being somewhat facetious in selecting Scotland as potential World Cup winners…
=======================================================================
IIRC, Scotland was as good as a World Cup winner – if for only a very brief period in fans’ heads…back in ’78 !
When Ally, [no – the real manager], promised to “bring back a medal at least”.
And when the squad had a victory lap around Hampden in an open top bus – before flying out to Argentina.

OK, we all fell for the hyperbole – but it was great fun…to start with.
16 long years without any World Cup mania in Scotland…but at least the SFA blazers never miss the Finals ! 👿

The real nightmare is this
The Spivs get 75% control and milk TRFC forever
=======================================
‘Nightmare’ ?

Karma ?

Depends on who you are asking.

what’s the chances of this leading anywhere

A LEADING Rangers fan has reported Ibrox investor Sandy Easdale to the financial authorities over alleged insider dealing…
========================================
It might lead to a drey…for another squirrel ?

Insider dealing is a notoriously difficult and expensive charge to prove.
In the great scheme of things, as we are dealing with a piddling little company, it’s going nowhere.

It’s either a deliberate/agreed squirrel – or Dingwall could be taking a significant, personal risk, IMO.

Either way, doesn’t change anything: TRFC is still gubbed for the long-term. 🙄

Roddy on the money.

Mmm…I don’t quite understand the purpose of this article.

He states the bleedin’ obvious: Deloittes could easily do walking away if the board doesn’t get it’s act together.

I could interpret this piece as simply Forsyth having a personal pop at Jack Irvine – and that doesn’t add anything at all.

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
