“Rangers” supporters give more money to spivs.

Cut them some slack!

The Rangers fans are constantly pilloried for not taking action so at least now they are trying something, I understand the arguments against this action but at least they are starting to get that they hold no control over the future and must do something to address that.

Misguided or too late in the day, at least they are active.

Has anyone considered that Eco might actually be pjz with massive split personality issues?


Not sure about that Smugas, Eco seems like a “onesie” sort of guy….. Especially with Pjz…..

TU 40 TD 6
I never worry one way or another about the TU/TD Count……


Unfortunately the rest of your comment negates the start Eco, if you had just posted the above, it would have had a lot more impact!

Just my opinion…..

I have to say, I am totally at a loss to explain the involvement of The Easdale brothers. If taken at face value and the loan is actually interest free and with no management fee, they are effectively losing money on that 500k.

What would prompt a non-Rangers supporting individual to give a company that owns the club, this level of funding? There are many wealthy Blue blood Rangers supporters out there, if they do not pony up why would anyone else?

What does he know that they do not?

Are the Paul Murrays of this world not as wealthy as stated? Are the accusations true, that they do indeed have a deep love for the club but even deeper pockets and arms like dinosaurs?

Alternatively, could just be a simple case of them all being “spivs” and only willing to spend to accumulate, directly or indirectly through the club! Just to be clear, I have no problem with that just as long as they are open about it and it would appear to me that nobody at Rangers since Lawrence Marlborough has been that open (his plan to bring Rangers back to former glory before selling it on) or in it for the good of the club and fans.

To Comply or not to Comply ?

Let me word this better so it makes sense!
In my heart of hearts I think it is a new club.

Jimbo, that is just Whataboutary, why bring Hearts into it? They reached an agreement with creditors and exited Administration, with history intact!  09

Time for Scots Government to Take Bull by the Horns
With last night’s result and news that The Rangers are paying out more more on another new signing today, we have to question the finances over at Ibrox.

Let us be clear here, last night’s result could happen to any of our teams competing in European competition this or the next years, In fact, we have seen this many times just over the last years. All this crap about being beaten by a ‘bunch of nobodies’ or a ‘team no better than my local pub team’, any team can beat any team on any given day, that is, or at least, that should be football and sport in general. I am always nervous when going into Europe and I will be the same next week, no matter the team, stick 10 men behind the ball and wait for a freak breakaway in the second half of the game is a tactic (quite rightly) used by smaller teams since the invention of the sport.

The real problem in my opinion is that some teams are spending based on future earnings that are not guaranteed. It is ok to speculate based on your attendance figures, based on sponsorship and other incomes that also fluctuate but are at least pretty predictable over a season, we should not however, budget based on qualifying for a specific tournament. When they do not qualify for that tournament, it create issues that can lead to the club finding other ways to cover that shortfall, and in some cases, adopting practices that would be deemed as unfair. This is exaggerated when competing in Europe as the sums involved are pretty substantial.

This is not new, David Murray did it, Craig White did it (even trying to buy someone while in Admin), Charles Green did it, and now the current crop of custodians of the Ibrox club are doing it.

We have rules that govern the sport, they are there to ensure both teams play only with 11 players each, that only the goalie is allowed to touch the ball with hands, to ensure that only players who are eligible to play for that team are on the team-sheet for that specific game, to ensure that players or teams are not disadvantaged by persistent or aggressive fouling or when the ball goes out of play that the game is stopped.

These are basic, universal rules invented to ensure fair play on the pitch, every organization plays by these rules, even if some have different perceptions of what is meant by aggressive.

However, some go further, some organizations adopt strict rules to ensure the clubs and leagues are financially sound, that no individual team can do what they want to buy success, legally or illegally.

So the real question is: Why are Scottish clubs (via The SFA) resisting this?

THAT Debate, and the Beauty of Hindsight

Take the blinkers off UTH, it was not a post about politics. It was an attempt at humour because the headline has the term ‘GERS’, nothing to do with The Rangers but is very relevant taken in the context of this whole charade.
I never even read the story, I just saw the headline on ‘Newsnow’ and thought “Wow, a game changer”, until I saw what it was really about.
For record, I saved the screenshot as a picture so there would be no automatic link to the political story.

We have all been waiting for this acknowledgement for years….. The best ones are usually the ones that you cannot make up 10

Looks like DJ is on message: extracted from his ‘ESJ’ column today, with my highlighting;
“…The fans have stuck by the manager and the team through bad runs before and they have enjoyed most of the football that has been on show in the last couple of years. But that goodwill only lasts so long and they need victories now.
I do think it is a must win on Saturday, not just for Mark
Ironically, this comes only days after the same man told everyone on air that Chris Sutton was ridiculous to state that Mark Warburton must win the next two games or his jacket is on a shoogly peg. It’s hard to defend the guy sometimes, as likeable as he might be….
