Gazette notice ready. An Ibrox Insolvency event will take place before March. Voluntary Liquidation and asset sale 100%.

Re the above – I did not read this in the literal sense, more as a “the writing is on the wall” sense, i.e. I don’t believe there’s literally writing on the wall (other than “Craigy W wiz ere”) but that what’s being intimated is a “certainty”.

Not personally saying it is a cert, but just looking at the statement from another perspective and it ties in with the tone of Phil’s recent blog posts.

Merit in that hypothesis but now I’m wondering if the press release was to put pressure on the Easdales to progress this.

If they don’t then “look, some big boys didn’t do it and ran away, not our fault”.

I can’t claim to follow the discussion re the lack of a deed of novation (can’t access sound files presently which would no doubt help!) but I previously noticed the following in the published clumphany accounts:

“On 14 June 2012, Sevco 5088 Limited entered into agreements for no consideration to legally reassign its beneficial interest in funding placing letters held and to novate the trade and assets purchase agreement with RFC 2012 plc (in administration), to Sevco Scotland Limited (now The Rangers Football Club Ltd).”

Does this help or hinder the current thinking?

Podcast Episode 1
Very recently in my work role I’ve bore the brunt of a media outlet printing outright lies and the misrepresentation of various facts.

The result of this is that a number of years work to change public perception is now seriously damaged.

The article in question was littered with a handful of facts in order for it to gain some legitimacy and inflict as much damage as possible.

Whilst unrelated to the round-ball game it’s struck a chord with me in light of the re-emergence of the Charlotte questions.

How is it that headlines bearing no resemblance to the story they link to can be printed without any semblance of fact yet information with clear links to well-known events are ignored?

I’m not asking for the regurgitation of the information simply, as many others have outlined before, the use of the information in asking questions?

In my own example a similar tact was taken – no questions asked in order to find the truth, instead quotes requested so that they can be misused to back up the original negative intent, strategically placed as if to give the stamp of approval to the lies that precede them.

Is anyone on here a journalist? I’m truly stumped and despondent over what would lead to this sort of behaviour. Is there no moral compass whatsoever or is there just an agenda of destruction, of anything and everything?

And if so, why bury the Charlotte stuff?

The Offline Game
Dropped in to see the latest thoughts on SFM and nearly had a fit when the banner across the top of the page read “Over 200 documents available”.  I thought the Panama papers, Charlotte Fakes’ USB drives, and an SFA laptop had been hooked up to SFM.Imagine my disappointment when I realised I’d misread it and it was an advert for “Over 200 documentaries”.

Whose assets are they anyway?

It’s a good time to be an Ayr United fan. We sit proudly at the top of Division 1 and could be heading back to our rightful place (the Championship). If things go the right way, we could win the 2002 League Cup which we were cheated out of 4-0. If only the Ayrshire Cup was still on the go, we might be heading for a glorious treble!

It could have been worse.  So much worse.  Had Murray been given the green light in Ayr we could have been sitting very uncomfortably on the outside of all this looking out …

Redistribution of Football Income – The Human Dilemma
Apologies if this has been posted before. I’ve not been able to dip in and out of the blog for a while now.

Some time ago someone mentioned a possible consultation on extensions to the Freedom of Information Scotland Act. By chance I’ve just seen that this has been open since June (!) but closes tomorrow.

I’ve not had time to read the document but I thought I would share in case anyone wishes to suggest that transparency in our ‘national game’ is something that should extend the Act to the SFA.

On football’s misguided battle against illegal streaming

There are some relevant points in there about offering a package from source that hasn’t been wrapped up in annual bloated subscriptions that come with useless guff.

If you look at NFL Gamepass and Watch AFL those are models that will put each and every game you want in HD when you want or are able to watch it with a lot more content. During the seasons you would struggle to watch every game, show and documentary. Never mind the historical stuff. I don’t think the costs are unreasonable either yet people still complain that it costs money.

Re the article above, saying that you “like” to do something and therefore “have to be illegal” is a stretch of logic on a Brysonesque level.
