The penny share seems to be dropping in the Penny Arcade on FF.

However, they don’t seem to understand the distinction between TRFC LTD and RIFC LTD, looks like a hard fall for many is still on the cards.

Sympathy I have none


Well said Scapa , I too , have a sympathy level of zero .

Too many of Ra Peepil prefer to think that TRFC LTD + RIFC LTD = RFC 1872 . That kind of tunnel vision is what is killing the newco , killed the old co and will continue it’s self harming ways until a shiny new Tesco sits on Edmiston Drive . They’ve been warned for years it was coming , hell mend them .

Eco’s forensic obsessing is entirely within the spirit, ethos and history of the blog. It’s why we come here!


I’ll second that . Eco’ s posts on the ”land deals” have been gripping . You’ve got to admire the forensic ability on show .

Is it a likely scenario that Mr Whyte’s return , is anything to do with the mooted ” sale and leaseback” ?

If he still some how has the deeds(personally , I think he has) , surely he’s the only guy that can sell , or should I keep my conspiracies theories to myself ? 😉

If the Whyte knight is indeed returning , is it possible that he will have in his possession…
A – a small voice recording apparatus and
B- the deeds ? 😉

My interpretation of the ST stand off is this.

GW – so Mr RFC lawyer, what we need you to do is provide a letter of undertaking that the fans can have the stadium and training ground

Lawyer – you mean a security?

GW – Jeez no, don’t be silly

Lawyer – Ah I get your drift, something a bit more flowery, pandering to the masses and all that. A cosmetic promise to do something sometime..

GW – Exactly.

Lawyer – Right I’ll need the deeds.

GW – Ah…………
GW- ….. Mr Whyte isn’t returning our calls .

Lawyer – Craig or Thomas ?

GW – Neither .

Lawyer – I’ll get my coat , have a nice day .

Don’t be surprised if the pre-season glamour friendlies/charity games at Ibrox start within the next 7-10 days.
El Galacticos ? Milanese giants ? What could be a more appealing and glamorous friendly for the sleeping Glasgow behemoths ?

Linfield . 🙄

“Armageddon? What Armageddon?”

It’s perfectly obvious what Armageddon they were meaning.
The Armageddon of one club, and one club only.
Not much has changed, it’s just watered down a wee bit.
I now await next season’s flying circus in the knowledge that the Championship is the bestest, hardest league in the wurld.
Whilst scrolling down the page , your last two lines looked like an Ibrox press release at a glance . Just as well I double checked 🙄

News to me but I’m tied up with the Brooks/Coulson trial so not really staying on top of the tax thing. Would suggest Mr Baxendale may have other reasons to do a midnight flit, never seen any suggestion he is in any way liable for how EBT scheme operated at Ibrox.
Somewhere, deep in my rusty memory banks, I seem to remember seeing somewhere that Baxendale’s very strict guidelines for operating the EBT scheme weren’t followed at Rangers. I could well be wrong but perhaps someone else might be able to identify a possible source for my memory fragment
Was the pornographer not quoted somewhere as saying ” I can build you a vehicle but I’m not responsible for how you drive it ” , or something equally facetious ?

Jean Brodie

We observers have a choice. Focus on what is on offer or on what is not.

Work with what is there or what is not.

Encourage or criticise.

Prolong or end.

Our move.
Our move ? No .

The next move is required by either the perpetrators or the governing bodies . The ideal statement from the SFA should be something along the lines of ……..

Singing of song X = Closed doors next home match .
Repeated singing of song X = Closed doors next 5 home matches .

This should apply to all “banned songs” , for all teams . You could , by this method ,eradicate it in one season . If you behave in an exclusionary manner , expect to be excluded . It’s well into the 21st century , enough is enough .
