We are in a holding pattern at the moment. It is clear that Group took in sufficient funds to keep Rangers in business for the time being. Every time somene as said what about the share price, I’ve had a look, the price is stable, the volume of shares being traded is in relation to the number of shares, is miniscule., so really it gives us no meaningful information at all.

The WUO was hilarious, but, it is still a sideshow. Both Rangers and Celtic, barring an asteroid hit, have won their respective leagues, they just don’t yet know which league they will be playing in. It will soon be SB renewal time, which poses an issue for all the clubs, because I would not bet the farm on re-construction being sorted anytime soon. Why? because nobody is actualIy leading on this. No one has come out and said we must do A B and C, here are the reasons why, and these are the risks if we don’t. In short no one is owning and driving the change, the result being that if change does happen, it will be ill thought out, poorly implemented, and very quickly found to deliver none of its goals.

In fact, I think I’ll see what odds I can get on no change happening at all

Is it not just the usual zig – zag? last weeks zig was the very welcome strong statement on fan behaviour, which went down less well with the faithfull. This week he throws some red meat to the faithfull with some pish about moving to the promised land, and acknowledging that the performances on the park, don’t match the expectations set by the wage bill. It’s the same hockey-cokey he has been playing since he arrived at Ibrox, nothing really new.

Big Pink, 5 minutes perusing the excellent blog blow, will show that for all the double dealing on display over Rangers, our “authorities” are rank amateurs when compared to the British state. Looking to Westminster is, I’m afraid laughable.

SPL clubs leaving en masse? Frankly, I’ll belive it when I see it. If there is any substance to this rumour, it is much more likely to be a negoitiating tactic, because the SPl clubs want something. Based on the performance of the SPL board to date, I would not bet the farm on that something being anything the fans will like. Reasons for saying that?

1. Is Aunt Sally Doncaster still in place? YES
2. Has Aunt Sally Doncaster just had a very nice pay rise, no doubt for services rendered? YES

Perfectly respectable point of view. However, I suspect things like Armed Forces Day are here to stay. A lot of people in the military love their football, they do not by any means all support Rangers. So if there is going to be some sort of Armed Forces Day, then why not make it inclusive rather than exclusive?
Personally, I think the SFA saying to the military, if service personnel turn up on Cup Final Day in uniform we’ll let them in free, is a much better way for football as whole to mark an “Armed Forces Day”, rather than the perennial PR car crash waiting to happen at Ibrox.
I bet, (know) a lot of serving military types would be quietly delighted to see and an end to the purely Rangers day.

Tried to add:
How about the SFA holding an Armed Forces Day as part of Scottish Cup Final? A bit like the Lawn Tennis Association does at Wimbledon, thereby detoxifying the whole issue?

Possibly, do they use temporary seating for Forces day?

Problem with the stands at Ibrox you say?
“Nothing to see here” says the man on the level
What about that Section 89 Building warrant lodged with the Glasgow City council?
here’s the guidance notes for applying for a Section 89 

“The plans should include the type of seats (if any)which are to be used….”
