EU, Make Yourself Useful !

Isn’t it time for the EU Trade Commission to step into the FIFA mess. They have proved resolute and diligent against the likes of Microsoft, Google and mobile phone companies in the name of protecting the interests of EU citizens – so now it’s time for the big one: FIFA.

Here we have an organization of global importance being run like some Chinatown crap game for the benefit of a gallery of shady chancers. It’s time to turn over the table and start again. First target must be the mockery of democracy, when one country, one vote has transmuted into one country, many bungs for the lucky few “administrators” who’ve caught the gravy train.

It’s time for the EU to insist on good governance of FIFA in order to operate in the EU – from which FIFA draws much of its revenue. They should also be pressuring UEFA to man up and reform their support of a corrupt regime. UEFA could fatally wound FIFA at a stroke by leaving and going its own way and boycotting any World Cup hosted in a country that does not have basic human rights – currently all future planned World Cups.

Maybe, our own fine government could take a break from bullying the disabled and disadvantaged to pick an adversary that requires courage and conviction to achieve a noble goal.

I used to devour John Le Carre’s novels – eagerly awaiting the next in the Smiley series. The only thing you could trust was that you could trust no-one and no information because the more you thought you could trust them the more you were probably being manipulated. So the only approach was to assume one person and maybe a few facts were broadly believable and then build a scenario around that – then compare It to all the other possible scenarios and try to divine some approximation to the probably truth – without ever fixing anything as entirely reliable. Brilliant mental exercise, but no preparation for this particular circus. After two year’s exhaustive training we could probably all get jobs as intelligence analysts.

I think that would have been more of an issue if this had happened last season when TRFC were still up against part-time opponents.
=======================================
Agree – but better late than never – there is still some dire football still to be had – especially with Ally in charge. Firing him would be a another big step away from the oldco – and far from cheap.

There needs to be (approx) 30,000 paying customers inside Ibrox to make it a viable proposition on match days.
===========================================
Now so many have taken the momentous psychological step of not renewing their ST, the quality of football and on-going governance will be judged every two weeks.. These are uncharted waters for those who expect unquestioning loyalty and sustained gullibility. Suddenly fans are customers, who have preferences, opinions and options that must be taken into consideration. For example, if the UoB could persuade most of the non-renewers to stay away for just one match, they would immediately gain the undivided attention of the board. Interesting times indeed.

Mods – you’ve been very busy pruning comments over the past day or so. How would you describe the reason for that.

erm, moderation?

y4rmy – totally agree with your recently deleted comment – fancy a quick pint – and maybe a few slow ones ?

There is also no evidence of Rangers not having a plan,we just don’t know what it is,again we just cannot presume there is no plan.

===========================

I can !!!


Why We Need to Change
Ironically FFs attempt to create FUD around PMG’s output and rebuild King’s reputation as Messiah and doer of financial miracles has solicited a number of well reasoned responses on several topics from several contributors. Collectively they lay out the many mine fields between here and fully funded bear nirvana.

So FFs achievement is to clarify for any undecided ST buyer that it’s a choice between a blind faith gamble of £411 on the word of a tardy, absentee, convicted criminal or paying at the gate. As FF has advised several times “we need to wait and see”. I suggest potential ST buyers take his advice and keep their options open. There could be an Xmas treat in it for the kids.

So you are retracting “I believe all unsold shares can be bought by DK.” and acknowledging it is an extraordinaty claim or day dream
=======================================================================

No sir,all unsold shares can be bought by DK,it is a fact not an extraordinary claim.

=========================================================

So you know King’s resources are adequate to do so and/or he is minded to do so. Or are you saying “I believe all unsold shares can be bought by DK or any other current shareholder with the resources and will – because that’s how a rights issue works but no one has yet stated any intention to do so.”. In which case you are saying nothing of interest.
