I was just pondering on Charlotte and the varying guises and twitter accounts. When she first came to this site she was someone who happened to have a pile of emails and was going to dump then. It was as if she had bought a laptop off ebay or gumtree and to her delight discovered that it had previously belonged to someone involved at Ibrox. Since that time I think she/he has shown that they are closer to things than first implied.

Bob that is a cracker. If this did in fact happen do Sevco still own the land and having done nowt with it, why? all could be very interesting and Mr McM and his merry mob may have opened a hornets nest. I hope it is true and there is more to this story how funny would that be:)

Getting money out of SA was always difficult but I’m not sure what its like now, even in the difficult times those and such as those could move money somehow. That said I would think King would be under much scrutiny

Rigged Monopoly

As someone who competed some 30 yrs ago in The British Monopoly Championships I could have saved the Prof the need for research. I was the first bankrupcy of the morning and afternoon sessions and my God when folk got on top did they revel in it. I could have battered one guy he was that arrogant. The final was very interesting to watch as this teenager had the upper hand most of the match and he let everybody know. He revelled in every bankrupcy and anytime he was bringing financial ruin to someone, he was fanatical. In the final part of the game we were left with this obnoxsious teenager and a pensioner who had scrapped through on what he had. The former had the old guy on the verge of bankrupcy a few times but just couldn’t kill him off. He was trying to dictate what he should mortgage off to pay off his debt and which propeties he should remove houses on etc. It was gratifying to watch the tables turn as the throw of the dice was working on his behalf. The old fella won to the audiences delight. The young boy was just as the prof described. BTW a tip for you all the next time you play, buy The Vine St (the orange) properties they give you the best return on investment :). PS I suppose it is the same in any competition, there are those who play by the rules and those who like to win at all costs regardless of the rules, rules and fair play get in the way of what you desire.

Time for Scots Government to Take Bull by the Horns
The shameless one will be either making calls or taking calls from folks who just pumped in soft loans, wonder how those conversations are going. Squeaky bum time


Time for Scots Government to Take Bull by the Horns
After that result players wearing green boots are the least of his worries. Mixed feelings as this is not good for Scottish football but on the other hand they get all they deserve and we can trace it all back to SDM and the SFA for letting this basket case of a club limp on. FF will be worth a nosey tonight. Where do they go from here ?

Thanks for your response. So Ticketus made a claim with the Adimistrators of the oldco and in the court case that followed Ticketus lost. Could Ticketus not have argued that the agreement started at the end of each season for the following so therefore it existed each year. Someone must have got their arse well and truely roasted at Ticketus. At the whyte court case were the witness from Ticketus former employees. 
The gauling thing is the new shower carry on with no shame for the trail of destruction they left behind and still claim to be the same mob. Pity they couldn’t sue the SPFL or SFA for poor management of the game that cost th financially.

Occasional lurker and never posted in a long time. Just a thought after the Craig Whyte trial. The latter had sold 3 years of season tickets for Ibrox to Ticketus. I appreciate that the old club have a number of creditors but if as according to the SFA (and EUFA if you listen to a Sevco fan) the new club are indeed the old club why did Ticketus not get 3 seasons worth of ticket sales out the new club?  If I was Ticketus I would have pursued this, maybe they did !


The Causes of Crime
Going back to my earlier post how refreshing would it be if the SMSM and these TV pundits  when commenting on the January transfer window told it like it is when discussing the Sevco squad shortcomings. They may have a massive support but the reality if the finances are no better than a struggling team in the lower leagues so how can they buy in the January window, what is the answer ? I just wish they’d stop talking mince (lamb of course) and debate the fact poor financial management and purchasing in transfer market is was brought down oldcoand so how does newco survive or improve because they have champange tastes and beer money. It’s a bit like having a conversation with Lee Hendrie the former Aston Villa player who went bankrupt and asking him if he’s planning on buying a new lambourgini in January and ignoring the fact he’s skint.
