I believe that was the game during a stoppage Tommy Gemmell chased a german player all round the pitch to thump him…

No that was the away match – and Helmut Haller the recipient of the TG toe-ender.
The Hampden match was a bit frustrating throughout after wee Gerd scored. High point was Bobby Murdoch’s screamer just before the end. I wonder if there is a video of that goal anywhere. Probably my memory has inflated it’s beauty?

Ryan, for some reasoon I always thought we lost to Germany in a qualifer for the 66 World Cup but it would seem it was Italy. Interesting that the team everybody else humped we didn’t which has always been a commom feature for scotland IMHO. Another thing I didn’t know was that Stein apparently took over as caretaker manager after our failure to qualify for the World Cup.

Stein took over as caretaker manager after Ian McColl left – during the 1966 World Cup campaign. Scotland had just two games left, both against Italy, and had to win both to qualify.

They won the first game at Hampden with a John Grieg goal set up as Jim Baxter picked him out on an overlap.
They lost the game that was televised in loads of schools, including my own and DP’s, by three goals to nil.

Stein’s master stroke that day was to play big Ron Yeats (“My God! Look at the size of YOU! You’re a MOUNTAIN!!” © Bill Shankly) at centre-forward.

A reasoned, well-evidenced argument on a topic that has been, and has continued to be, a pre-occupation of this site since its inception and its getting the “don’t engage please” treatment. “Let it pass”. The impudent attempt at offering an alternative narrative i presume you’re referring to there? Oh dear.

And you wonder why this site has the reputation that it has?

Have sent you a mail regarding the Counsel’s Opinion matter. Let me know when you receive it.

Everyone else
I thought John should have a first look at the advice I have received. Will post later when JC has had a butcher’s.

TSFM certainly doesn’t have any locus to sue. I think that, as others have said, the value of such a move would be the confidence and credibility we would gain from having counsel back up our viewpoint – or the credibility and humility we would have thrust on us if counsel contradicts our consensus and we publish that regardless 🙂
It would also be good to direct counsel not to simply advise in accordance with our own preconceptions.

I don’t know the disclosure requirements for AIM, but one thing we have learned from this situation, is that AIM are about as effective a constraint to poor practice as a chocolate teapot, and as vigilant a watchdog as a dead sloth.
My suspicion is that a line of credit has been obtained in return for the deeds of Murray Park.
The money changing hands here is not Murray-esque, so although the ‘buy now-pay later’ ethos may be alive and well, the degree is less severe than in the past.

Looking forward, even the sums talked about in any rights issue or subsequent shares issue (moonbeams or otherwise) are modest in relation to the ambition. As an optimist, I suspect that Rangers fans are beginning to wake up to that.

If so it may be that some of the fan groups will start to resist the Murray/Green moonbeams approach and try to instil a greater sense of realistic expectation amongst the Bears. I certainly hope that is the case, because it will be a significant and welcome development for their club, and the start of what will hopefully be a reconciliation across the whole spectrum of the Scottish game.

On other matters which have been discussed of late, I think it is now beyond doubt that someone somewhere is putting cash into TRFC. It seems inconceivable that a company which urgently needed a million and a half quid weeks before ST renewals were announced would be in a situation where the burn rate had slowed to zero, thus requiring no cash top-up.

Subsequent ST renewal money is already £1.5m light due to the loan. Whilst helping with immediate cash flow, that could not justify the recent player acquisitions (which are absolutely necessary to ensure promotion in a league which is more competitive than they could ever have feared), especially given that the quest to recoup some cash by unloading already overpaid players will likely prove fruitless.

It seems certain, and a ‘Chic Young’ confirmatory nod has been dispensed in our direction, that cash has been made available by interests who are violently opposed to the scuttling of the ship.
We are trying to find out more info on whether or not the input transactions(which would inevitably show up as loans) will be visible to shareholders.

I am fairly certain that any shareholder request to open the books would be problematic for the TRFC board.

We can certainly be sure of one thing. TRFC is not running on air, or credit from a bank. They MUST be getting money from somewhere. I suspect that the silence is due to what measures they will be forced to take to pay it back.

I think I we would be happy to do what you ask. I have absolutely no idea of the cost of such a venture, nor whether or not it would be money wisely spent.
Campbellsmoney has been absent of late, but his input might be useful – as would the opinion of any other legal types.
Counsel’s opinion, whatever it turned out to be, would be the basis for a blog, or podcast where we could help to inform as wide an audience as possible. I will investigate further and keep you all in the loop.
I don’t want to solicit any contributions right now, but I will report back on the likely cost and viability.

I don’t know why we are getting all hot and bothered about the Big Production number surrounding the Championship. We are talking about the 2nd, 3rd and 5th best supported teams in the country. The standard of football on offer is secondary to the box office appeal of those clubs.
Can’t blame the TV companies for wanting to sustain their sub levels.
