Ryan thanks for the response.
Great to finally get some views.

One of the main things that strike me and I am sure many others wonder, is what do you think the reaction will be if it was to take another four years to get back to the top, and it could well take that long if CEO Wallace were to wield a big axe

As you imply because of the SDM years a sense of entitlement has surrounded the club and the reality of the situation may not have struck home. If Rangers fans are not happy with the performances just now what is their reaction going to be if its gets a bit tricky in the championship next year.

How many will buy into the ‘hard struggle back’ and are they convinced that this is what the current board want?
One thing many of us on here got wrong was the fans reaction and the amazing turn outs at Ibrox so far. Do you get the feeling the current crowd level is sustainable if prices go up but the performances are similar and next year the results don’t come?

From my point of view they really have to get up to the Premiership ASAP or it could be a mini Leeds / Porstmouth situation.

I see Guidi is up to his usual approach.

Shout down fans and callers for not having any facts to back up their comments and accusations but totally failing to come up with any of his own or even a hint that he may be trying to get any by investigating the dodgy dealings down Govan way.

What a waste of space.

Far better if he took the Alan Rough pundit’s role of admiting you know nothing as opposed to pretending you have some ‘inside’ info.

Just a further thought.

The Bears are all talking about wanting and needing investment yet here we have the Easdales and Laxey putting money into the club but wanting it back ASAP along with some form of interest and security.

Am I correct in saying that at least some of Laxeys money went into the club and thus onto the park from their early buy-in to the IPO but the bulk of there share ownership have just been trades between shareholders?

IIRC the Easdales buy in came after the IPO therefore none of their money has found its way onto the park as it was all just more horse trading bewtwen shareholders post IPO?

Therefore with the CEO still needing to implement the cuts he has spoken about on numerous occassions, when will the Bears see the investment that they are seeking for, improvements to the team, the scouting system, the stadium, the redevelopment of Edmiston House etc etc etc when the two ‘big players’ seem to be ‘takers’ rather than ‘givers’???

Being that it has been confirmed that two property assests of RIFC are being used as security for loans given by two shareholders does that add weight to the Sons of Struth position that other shareholders may be a bit hacked off.

Even though some say the assets may not be worth much would other shareholders/investors, who are now looking at 27p per share as opposed to the 70p they paid, not have fancied a wee punt in that direction, whereby arrangement fees, interest payment or shares could be gained along with the possibility of default on the loan hovering in the background?

Indeed. And that was my other thought.
Even if Mark Allen does a good job T”Rangers wouldn’t see any cash for any upcoming talent (internal or bought in)  for a god number of years.
To date a good few lads showing talent have been allowed to leave to keep the lights on.
At present the only prospect they have is McRorie who I think has stepped up and performed well when asked.He certainly has confidence and could develop into a decent centre back playing with the likes of Souttar for Scotland.

I am sure the thought will have crossed other’s minds but will say it anyway.
Celtics ‘free money’ from the VVD  transfer is more than T’Rangers stated  loan requirements to keep the lights on for the next year or two.
Thats the size of the gap between Celtic and the rest of us.

Thought that may be the case but was wondering if someone would be trying to get ahead of the game.
