The Scotsman ‘Rumours’ quoting The Scottish Sun, [my highlighting] :

“…Rangers could make a £1.2 million bid for Brighton winger Jamie Murphy next month…”
============

And so it begins.

Rangers could make a £X million / billion bid for SPL / EPL / La Liga player ‘Billy Bob’ next month.

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…]

I know I shouldn’t…
Extracted from Derek Johnstone’s p!sh today, with my highlighting;

“…It is a huge call for Derek to make and it is a slap in the face to the Rangers board after they took six weeks going through the process and then made a move for him on Tuesday…”
===============================

And just what was that ‘process’ Derek ?

Shirley, the recruitment process would only really have started when TRFC had handed over the contractually stipulated GBP1M: to open talks with McInnnes ?

Or, it took six weeks of relentless PR pressure – via the compliant SMSM including Derek himself – to unsettle and intimidate Aberdeen Football Club ?

Yes, on every Level, it looks like TRFC has got its tactics massively wrong wrt to appointing their new manager.

Even if they were sure they would get McInnes, they could at least have instructed the SMSM to copy/paste ‘rumours’ that a high Level, alternative manager(s) was also being considered ?

Just to hedge TRFC’s bets, so that if for any reason McInnes said “Naw”, then TRFC could then spin that McInnes was not in fact their first choice – or some such BS.

[It seems like the standard MO when a club is linked with a player: they communicate that they have other players to consider for the same position, so its not a negative PR story if the player doesn’t arrive at the club after all.]

And…TRFC / Level42 have had several weeks to plan for all possible outcomes.

Mibbees they just aren’t sharp enough to plan any better ?  22


Who Is Conning Whom?
Mibbees this manager shambles will produce an unintended consequence for the Blue Room?

It should now – finally – be clear to the bears that;

– the SMSM is crap, and is just an unpaid PR outlet for TRFC
&
– King and co are incompetent and the club has no cash.

And it’s a poor show that their youth coach is left to carry the can in the meantime.


Who Is Conning Whom?
Bloody long-winded TRFC statement, just to say;

“We’re still looking.”

Mibbees King will write a letter to Santa insisting he has been a good boy all year, and not told any lies either – honest! 😉

And top of his pressie list could be an accomplished manager / magician who can pull the title out of the hat with no money?


Who Is Conning Whom?
Could TRFC just sell the manager’s position to the highest bidder?

Would make a great stocking filler for a bear this Christmas?
