Comment on Launch of SFSA Fans’ Survey by jimbo.

In the course of my career I studied finance and accounts to a basic level.  Mainly budgetary control. but I did pick up on some bits and pieces like balance sheets.  So happy to be corrected in anything I get wrong.

Charles Green did not buy Rangers as a ‘going concern’.  This is important to understand.  To buy Rangers as a going concern he would need to have bought them whilst in administration. Had he done so, he could quite rightly have claimed the titles.  It was not possible once they had begun the liquidation process.  He merely bought the assets.

Assets can have intangible aspects to them.

“What is an ‘Intangible Asset’. An intangible asset is an asset that is not physical in nature. Corporate intellectual property, including items such as patents, trademarks, copyrights and business methodologies, are intangible assets, as are goodwill and brand recognition. Intangible assets exist in opposition to tangible assets which include land, vehicles, equipment, inventory, stocks, bonds and cash..”

Nowhere ever, have I read of buying history or awards given to a now defunct business.

The guy was talking nonsense as he later more or less admitted in court.

Lets suppose Tesco wins ‘supermarket of the year’ but goes bust.  Goes into liquidation.  The assets of old Tesco are bought by Sommerfield.  Do you think they have the right to say they are ‘Supermarket of the year’?  I don’t think so.  They are a new firm.  Starting from scratch.  Even if the shops still have Tesco signs, they have new owners and will have different ways of working.

As I said last night, I can almost understand why The Rangers fans cling on to the falsehoods spread about by the media and the people at Hampden, I might have done it myself in the same position.  If I was deluded. Why is it not obvious to so many people that they have been lied to.  Can only be desperation.

Neil Doncaster on his visit to Celtic Park today to witness the opening game of the SPFL:
I just came to say “Hello”

(Neil you won’t be missed!)

Just back from the pub after watching the opening game of the season.  In the interests of the site I will say no more.  However, as the poster who exposed the drama of the delay in the opening of the new stand at Tynie, I think I should get 2 free tickets for the first game against Celtic.17171818

Think it’s November or December. I will wear my wooly scarf.

(I will not tie it around your goalposts!)

Sorry Jambos not crowing, but I wouldn’t like to be the procurement manager responsible for this oversight.

I think he/she can forget about a Christmas bonus this year.

Dom16,  Was thinking about Christmas decorations today.  I took mine down.  Most neighbours have done the same.  Nowadays with the huge build up to Christmas from November we are ready to put it behind earlier than in the past.  It used to be customary to keep decorations up until 5 Jan. ‘Epiphany Eve’ or ‘twelfth night’.  It’s good to see them go up but good to see them put away for another year!
(Merry Christmas).

Historical / hysterical January transfers:
Jean-Alain Boumsong (Rangers to Newcastle £8m, 2005)
This was a strange signing on many levels, with Newcastle paying Rangers £8m for Boumsong’s services just a few months after he’d been available on a free.

The Newcastle manager?  G. Souness! 21

(Think he received an EBT after it)

Just dawned on me it might be easier to just disable the thumb down button rather than introducing a LIKE button. 

It Is Better To Offer No Excuse Than A Bad One
The thumbs down misuse mystifies me.  It happens often.  I wish we had a simple LIKE button with no dislike option.  You either vote for a post in a positive way or scroll past.  I know it would sacrifice the option of registering a strong disagreement in points of principle, but worth it I think. 

It would take away the perverse satisfaction of these trolls.  Besides, our great posters are very able to counter any dubious posts with logical counter arguments. (Which can then be LIKED)
