A forum would shift this to a separate thread and help us focus.

For a while I thought a forum structure was the answer. But I’ve come to the conclusion that the current blog structure focuses minds on each and every issue and deals with it.

My concern about a forum structure is that last night’s debate would probably have gone on partly unobserved on a forum thread. It could have led to some pretty heated stuff being said and some major falling outs. On a forum the audience could become fragmented. And then again, who can possibly admin or police every forum thread? It would be a huge task and perhaps signal open season for trolls. There’s something healthly about the whole TSFM family working through an issue together.

Sorry OT but relevant to the last 24 hours.

Tam Cowan, I salute you.

Brilliant. And in the DR too.

More fun later:

Stuart and Tam are joined by Rangers legend John ‘Bomber’ Brown.

Some of us still think of a floating charge in terms of attacking play on a hoverpitch. So, after many months of reading about an fc, I appreciated the attempt to put the concept into plain English in your post:

“A Floating charge is like a net which hangs over the assets of a company. Unless and until it has crystallised, it doesn’t attach to any assets. Assets can come and go from the company. Assets which leave the company are no longer subject to the floating charge. Assets which come into the company become subject to the floating charge. If the floating charge crystallises, the “net” falls, and whatever assets the company has at that time may be caught by it.”

If we make the assumption as we do that the MSM want a strong successful Rangers, then are they really so daft as to be taken in by CG?

One reason why the DR was chatting with RTC on twitter could be that they want to be on the winning side. If The Sun is trying to be the new DR in cheerleading terms, and succeeding too, it’s going to look a bit daft if RFC falter again. If, on the other hand, the DR can be seen to have engaged with the main blogger who foresaw this mess they could boost their waning credibilty – especially among among blue readers. And if they can get an anonymous conversation with RTC all the better, they’ll have a free scoop, and be able to take some credit, if only by association.

Danish Pastry has indeed been absent of late. I will drop him a note to inform him of your plea…
Godmorgen allesammen. 
I’ve been absent without leave. Mostly following events via twitter (where I tweet far too much about issues not relevant or welcome here 13 ). Hopefully, there’ll be a theme park one day, based around these sagas, with various ‘rides’ (not all free, obviously, tee-hee).
Onwards and upwards.
PM sent to JC.

Fascinating encounter John. Interesting, too, that he agreed to meet you afterwards. 
Sadly, it appears not only the authorities, but also certain club chairmen have decided to take the path of least resistance. This corruption won’t end well. It’s just a pity not one newspaper will run the story. As mentioned before, it’s like fitba’s All the President’s Men withoot the good MSM media guys. 
Still, I reckon the SFA are worried. And the campaign to promote the liquidation lie and the same-co narrative is costing certain folks a fortune. They’re all on borrowed time and borrowed money.

Morning all? Birdsong and blue skies in North Zealand today. 
John, I posted a response to your meeting with Regan. I was auto-informed it was ‘spam’ and it wiz flushed doon the virtual cludgie 🙂 Don’t have time to re-write again. But, summa summarum – bravo!

John Clark Meets “The SFA”
Bravo JC for the interview report. Been following reaction to it. Feels as though genuine movement finally being made to bring issues into the wider public domain. JJ is making a fascinating contribution, too, and quite often echoing sentiments expressed here for the past many years. And his sense of fair play and sporting justice is exemplary. Phil is still adding some deeper insights even though he has a momentous 100th anniversary on his mind, and a piece about that in the works. 

Not posting here much myself, but so many others far more capable do that. Keeping up via twitter, etc. 
Godt nyt år and onwards and upwards in 2016 (somewhat belated).

Two wrongs and a right

Happy Christmas Eve everyone on here.
Lovely post jimbo. Brought back memories of gazing into Doig’s Toy Shop on Duke Street in the weeks before Christmas — and the gradual appearence of Christmas trees in folks windaes. Certainly cheered up the black tenements and the dreich 1960s East End in winter. Poverty was a way of life for many of us East Enders, so dreams of Doig’s toys usually remained in the window of Doig’s. Still, selection boxes and annuals were braw, and oranges and thrupney bits in yer stocking wurnae too bad either. In those days you got on with it, Christmas wasn’t hyped up as it is now. I expect children facing poverty today, and who experience a ‘modest’ Christmas, probably feel it more deeply than some of us did because of the slick commercialism promoting a form of celebration not all can afford. 

As an exile with Christmas Day on the 24th in the evening, it seems a long way from Duke Street. But your past never leaves you. I think there’s a wee bairn in aw of us still oan Christmas Eve 🙂

Big thanks to all the excellent contributors to this blog in 2015. All the best you and yours this Christmas and onwards and upwards in the new year when it comes.
