Not sure Ashley or anyone needs to be that smart.

The problem is that for a number of years the situation down Govan Way has been so desperate that anyone with half a brain and a bit of spare cash could work a deal and dictate conditions in their favour.

Must say that given the timing of the open offer then Wallace going now doesn’t seem the best.

However Keef did mention in his interview to Easdale that Wallace might be on the King side of things as opposed to Ashley.

Say what you like about King but I do think he would be trying to make sure money was put onto the park if he had control.

Ashley on the other hand has a different angle.

If Ashley is set to do some kind of deal, then those and such as those won’t Wallace hanging around trying to do his job of either implementing the needed austerity or securing ‘soft investment’ that the club really needs.

As discussed previously my view is just enough money being pumped in at the required time to get into the premiership. Ashley then has another Newcastle on his hands in that he can just keep a loyal following on side enough to sell them kit (with a stranglehold over all merchandise and advertising operations) and on the basis of the occasional flurry into europe.

Geniuses the pair of us 🙂

Won’t be holding my breath until we see more.

The title of the blog posted by Phil Mac on twitter looks like one he did a few weeks back so it may not be anything new, just Phil’s way of saying he feels he has got it right, before the MSM, once again.

I am sure the matter will be cleared up shortly.

Phil Mac tweeting his web hosts are rebooting his site, back up shortly.

A bit of procrastinating at work led me to this from last year.


“The story goes that Ashley snapped up the club (Newcastle) from the Hall family with a view to selling it quickly at a huge profit to an already identified buyer – a deal known as a “flip” in City speak. “But the deal never came off,” laughs one familiar with the negotiations. “And what do you call a deal that goes wrong? An investment. Newcastle’s become a very costly investment for Mike.” Not that Ashley will sell out on the cheap to avoid the abuse and grief he gets from the Magpies’ faithful. “He will never sell that club at a loss. It’s just not in his make-up,” says the friend.

Ashley seems more cautious these days. He was recently overheard telling Bhs and Topshop tycoon Sir Philip Green, whom he calls Emp – short for emperor: “I don’t do risk any more, Emp.”

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.
