From the Daily Record article
“For years now the Rangers fans have been labelled as fractious.”

How very true, they still are really.
They are factious as well, but that’s another story.

About 500 million of them are fictitious. Is that what they meant?

“Questions, though. Do the Rangers support really have the collective stomach to hold the pillow over the head of their club?”

Do they have the brain to realise that precedent tells them another debt-free head will soon follow, anyway? Campbell will see to that.


Past the Event Horizon
If I were a Rangers fan, I’d be concerned that my club’s holding company’s chairman gives the impression he wouldn’t recognise Ibrox if it passed him in the street. That statement was as tragic and ironic as it was hilarious. Agree with Smugas – it’s all a bit obvious and public isn’t it? On the Ibrox sale denial, would Ibrox be “sold” to RIFC plc or is it just an inter-group asset transfer? (That sounds like I know what I’m talking about).

Question for you all.
Who will we see first in December ,Santa or CO.I know who my monies on.

One of the above will appear at the cup draw tomorrow. He should have a red face and say “Ho, Ho, Ho” but will actually have a brass neck and be thinking “Dough, dough, dough”.

Any membership of secret organisations must be resigned and anybody found to be disregarding this edict, removed from office immediately.

An admirable suggestion but I can’t see how that would work. The SFA test would involved the question “Are you a member of a secret organisation?”‘, to which the answer would always be “no” (although that’s probably debatable). The subject may be able to produce a letter from the organisation they definitely weren’t a member of, confirming the same (which may, helpfully, include the date they absolutely didn’t join). If this later proved to be (I believe the current word is) “inaccurate”, then the Bryson rule would apply. I think that’s where we’re up to in this nonsense.

Is it possible Mr King repeatedly “jets in” to Glasgow simply to reduce his tax liability in South Africa? Even better if he does it publicly and takes back a Daily Record article of said “jetting in” as evidence of where he’s been. All this ‘Rangers’ talk could be just a smokescreen.

Thanks, LTL (and Easyjambo, earlier). I attracted a lot of TDs for my (mainly rhetorical) question so can only assume folk thought I was questioning John’s work, which was certainly not where I was coming from. It was just my clumsy way of paying tribute. I know I wouldn’t be able to produce what amounted to transcripts of proceedings with additional, helpful comments – not with my handwriting and attention span. I can’t help thinking that if this kind of detail was available at the FTT, our collective flabber might not have been quite so gasted at the outcome. Thanks to everyone who took the time to attend and report back.

I’m a D but verging on double D these days.

“… I suspect he may be doing a “Craigy” whilst scribbling for effect…”

Cross my heart and hope to die, scouts’ honour, no electrical or mechanical gizmos or gadgets, morse code, carrier pigeons or woolly bees have been employed in my reporting from the UTTT! Only my pen and Poundland £1 A4 wide-ruled refill pad! And a strong desire not to fall asleep from boredom, by keeping busy!

Didn’t doubt it for a moment, John. I seem to have acquired several TDs I hadn’t bargained on but glad you were on the same benign wavelength. Sir, I salute your indefatigability (and eye for a stationery bargain).
