On the assumption that Rangers need to continue as a “big team” you are right although there are still ifs and buts in your argument i.e. speculation. The SFA did not close down and should not have closed down Dundee, Dunfermline or Hearts just because they were broke and entered admin, the only requirement was to be able to complete their fixtures. A lot of the 41 other teams are as broke as Rangers, they just have to deal with it rather than the SFA pulling the plug.

Good post Barca. We can argue the finer points of your math (sic) but it is obvious that this Rangers could survive at a level above the vast majority of SPFL clubs. The fact that they will eat themselves because they’re nae as big as Celtic, won’t win 10 in a row and generally won’t be able to thrash everybody on a weekly basis is fun to watch but sad all the same. It’s all been said before but if they had hunkered down after admin or even liquidation and got on with survival/revival they would be much further along the road to being a decent Premiership team by now. It’s still theoretically doable but it looks like their support (including the SMSM) won’t live with that. That’s their choice: crazy.

The SFA have no obligation or duty to speculate on whether this version of Rangers will or will not live within their means next season. They (this Rangers) are entirely capable of cutting their cloth to suit and complete the next and many more seasons. Not to mention that, given the amount of ST’s they sell and crowds they get, would be better off than 40 of the other SPFL clubs who live day to day on free transfers, youths and a wage bill and running costs marginally within their income at best. With the odd exception they strive to get through each season without increasing their debt and cost of maintaining same. The fact that we (totally justifiably) cannot see this Rangers doing anything other than business as usual is neither here nor there, that’s entirely their choice and if they go titsup during the season they will have to live with the consequences. The SFA can not speculate any more than they can if they heard that Stewarty Milne will throw a wobbler and sign up a bunch of mediocre SPL tradesman at 7k a week and appoint a favourite ex striker (Joey?) on 800k a year with a business strategy that had little chance of an outcome other than going bust. Not their fault or their place to speculate. It’s up to the clubs to manage themselves properly.

Exactly. The NYT article that JC commented on was posted by me as a dig at yuppified franchise fitba, not America.

Bogs Dollox.  On the beeb Scotland news Douglas Fraser too explained how the 30% barrier lead to the TOP requirement with no mention of concert party.  They did at least quote the bit about how the trust appears to be able to raise funds when DK wants but it was all pretty subservient.  You could detect the fear in Fraser’s eyes as he hastily churned out that the share value of 27p meaning no one is likely to accept 20p, i.e. a fuss about nothing.  Aye right!  The shares are worth what the market will pay: for any significant trade that was diddly squat before the judgement and worse now the cold shoulder beckons.

“This person is totally destroying the site.”  That’s the general idea.  It’s concomitant with being a troll.  That’s why trolls troll specific sites that question their agenda, usually the big lie; whether it’s politics or fitba.  Editing would only put SFM on a par with the MSM.
My only response has been ignore him/her/them (it?).  I would request that those fine gentlemen on here who feel obliged to counter the troll should desist.  You are great at arguing but a troll needs only a response to keep trolling.  p.s. did I mention it’s a troll?

Graham’s uttering is typical of (concomitant with?) paid bum kissers that hang around spivs. See Tony Curtis in Sweet Smell of Success. He is trying to re start a non story on the basis that his spivs tapped up McInnes. What a tit!

Aye a fair quantum of concomitance with that quintessential SFMship is required to give the Saintees biggest fan anything else rather than the cold shoulder on a decent night out.  The misguided view that TRFC have an elevated status is founded on a sense of entitlement so the sucking up to L5 feeds and speculation is not unexpected amongst fans with laptops and EBT’ers such as Boyd, Rae, Ferguson et al.  The illuminating thing here is just how far the supposed journos have gone down the same road, with the notable exception of Chick in this case.  I suspect he may well have had an inside track which is more than we can say about any of the others.  Who knows, maybe he asked TRFC, an off the wall idea for the SMSM there?


Who Is Conning Whom?
That statement clears the air.  The SMSM clearly didn’t appreciate how much TRFC didn’t want McInnes anyway, that’s ’em telt.
