Many posters here are wondering why the Sevconians are concentrating their efforts on a land deal and a bank lending facility of a club not in their division.

Simple answer is – they have all fallen for the great liquidation lie.

This lie depends on many people to spread the message – the SFA, the SPFL, SMSM and their own Supporters organisations………

That no matter what happens, there will be a team in blue from Govan competing in the CL in the near future….

Liquidation is recoverable. Maybe even repeatable. Its merely shedding debt you don’t need or want. Its only fancy accounting language that no once cares about. Financial institutions know what they are doing and are in it for the long haul. These institutions will gift the money in the same fashion they have been doing for last 30 years. They want to invest to have Rangers back in the CL and recoup their money then. There is not a great gulf between where they find themselves and where they deserve to be. And despite the rest of Scottish football, there will always be a Rangers………..

Only its all a lie,

Lies and nonsense have not been swallowed so well since the invention of the Chinese Fortune cookie message,

To have people think that BDO are investigating an unknown holding company that is not Wavetower and is not apparently the same entity whose name is on the gates of Ibrox as – Rangers Football Club Ltd.

Since the Liquidation lie depends of the Then, Now and Forever, why should anyone who is a believer in this be worried about any possible shortfall in their accounts?

What is the worst that can happen? A 15 point or 25 point deduction? So what? A loss of points was the only punishment they got last time……….

However somewhere along the road they got relegated for no reason……………another lie!

The biggest issue facing Scottish Football is the Liquidation Lie.

Until it is stopped, there can be no interest by the TRFC fans in the shenanigans going on…..nor any reconciliation with the rest of the footballing world.

Big fan of the Bundesliga – SFA could do a lot worse than try to copy them instead of EPL – and I especially like the last paragraph of the article for some reason!

Bundesliga posts record turnover due to Champions League

The German Football League has said the Bundesliga’s 18 first-division clubs have secured record profits and revenues during the past season. The all-German Champions League final was a major driver.

The top-flight German football league secured record turnover of 2.17 billion euros ($2.96 billion) during the 2012-2013 season, the German Football League (DFL) announced Tuesday.

Last season’s turnover figures meant growth of 4.4 percent over the previous year, when the league topped the 2 billion euro mark for the first time. It is the ninth-straight season the Bundesliga has posted record takings.

DFL Chief Executive Christian Seifert added the Bundesliga clubs also logged record operational profits of 383.5 million euros.

“The Bundesliga is succeeding in the split between top level sports performance and economic rationality, especially compared to others in Europe,” Seifert said.

“Thanks also to the further increases with the media contracts that take effect this season, the league is on the road to extending its position as the second-strongest earning football league in Europe behind the English Premier League,” he added.

The increase of media money ensured it was the biggest revenue stream, with its 28.53 percent of the pie taking it past advertising. Advertising revenue also grew, however, as did merchandising.

While the Bundesliga saw a drop of an average of 2,000 spectators per match, it still remains the world’s best attended competition.

“This had mainly to do with the makeup of the league and with seven clubs playing in stadiums with a capacity of under 30,000 seats,” DFL President Reinhard Rauball said via release.

The success of the Bundesliga also meant good news for the state, as it received a record amount of 850 million euros in tax revenues from the clubs.

Interesting that instead of encouraging the young team playing for Hearts, Ryan Stevenson decided to go to Ibrox to watch a game – no issue with players watching games, but surely it must be when your own team is not playing?

Given that he nearly joined the Sevco team along with Templeton, would make me wonder what is going on if I were a Hearts fan……………

Davylotion – plus Lee McCulloch suddenly came out in the press about there being no gap between SPFL and Div 1 (and I assume the Championship) in between.

Is he trying to say that this is why there is no reason for a paycut or pruning of the squad and is in full agreement with Dave King?

Or is it inadvertently setting the scene for the view that if he is correct, then why can these players not go all the way to SPFL top tier without any more signings given that they have an unbeaten run in an allegedly SPFL top tier standard league?

Jack’s messages tend to be not well thought through!

This portion interested me in the TRFC ST blurb.

“In addition, a limited number of value season tickets will be introduced, seeing the lowest adult price at Ibrox in more than 10 years.”

Having worked for ticketing pricing/accounting in a major US airline – I think they are using interesting similar tactics.

In order to get advertising going you designate the minimum no of seats as Consumer Watchdog will allow at a low price – say out of 350 seats you have 10 seats available for 200 while the rest are 300 – 500. You can now advertise the famous = prices start at only 200 – when in fact there is zero chance anyone outside of the 10 (which are sold via favoured outlets for commercial gain) will have a chance to get the for sale ones – they are then hooked into buying the other ones. This is favoured heavily by low cost carriers. And now seemingly football clubs!

Newcastle owner Mike Ashley plots move to buy Rangers and take them back to the Champions League

The controversial Toon owner could uses his billions to rescue the ailing Scottish giants and restore them to their former glories

Great Scot: Is Mike Ashley set to go north of the border?

Newcastle owner Mike Ashley is ready to buy Scottish giants Rangers and bring back their glory days, reports Alan Nixon in the Sunday People.

The billionaire businessman, who already owns seven per cent of the Ibrox club, dreams of taking Rangers into the Champions League in the next two years.

But the 49-year-old has no plans to offload Newcastle – bad news for Toon fans who are desperate to see the back of him.

Yesterday members of the Mike Ashley Out Campaign held an open-top bus protest through the city centre before the game with Manchester United – they are fed up with Ashley’s stewardship of their club, claiming he runs it as a financial exercise rather than a sporting institution.

Owning two clubs in the same competition is forbidden – which could give Ashley problems should both Toon and Rangers qualify for Europe.

Ashley knows there is money to be made from the loyal Rangers supporters, as fanatical as Newcastle’s.

For all their current financial problems, Rangers could still be a money-making machine in the right hands.

I’d be pretty p!ssed off if the rumour that Celtic have fined Griffiths is true. It just backs up the lunacy at the SFA…


Nearly…….the fine by his employers makes the follow up charge by SFA even more nonsensical

Celtic had every right to slap him on the wrists – he should not by his own conduct blemish the reputation and good standing of his employer. Hopefully he has learned that he is now in a real fishbowl and cannot be seen to be doing this stuff when everyone and his uncle has a phone with video etc ready to send and post it all over the internet.

However, for the SFA to then become involved is nonsense – which is why Celtic are defending him on that – basically saying we have taken care of it and there is no need for a double punishment…………

I for one am not at all unhappy with Celtic for their stance so not sure why you are “pi$$ed”

Scottish Football: An Honest Game, Honestly Governed?
Ok here is something to consider………Goosey has got me thinking………….

SDM said CW duped him – everyone including me guffaws……..but what if……….

What if DK was the man that was supposed to take over the Marble Staircase but his issues with SARS meant he could not and the timing of this could not have been any worse since now SDM had no more time to delay until DK was free due to Lloyds now demanding their money back as well as his crumbling MIH empire………

So they find someone who will be the figurehead until DK can move in and take over…………

Jack built CW up thanks to Keef to be the billionaire – MH were SDM’s boys doing the favour….so they built him up because it suited their agenda to have him accepted. SDM also ignored Bain and Johnstons warnings – SDM also put CW in touch with Ticketus – seemed all very friendly indeed between SDM and CW.
During the CW reign, DK was not only getting financial reports on a continuous basis but also was the only one not fired or forced out – and as soon as Admin happens, in flies DK………….

DK was an important piece – and thinks he is owed after his 20 million gift to Murray Sports…….

But what if for once SDM was telling the truth……

What if DK was supposed to be the Loving Cup toaster in waiting……….and CW was supposed to be the foreman meantime………..but decided instead to go with his plan to get Ibrox and Moses MacNeil Park via a quick administration……….which backfired when Charles and Imran reneged on their promises………..

According to our late friend Corsica, CW, CG and DK were amongst a select group in Zurich for a wee chat………. now why would DK want to be doing that……….the others we know why, but DK?

Could it be that Lord Cardigans last minute attempt was an attempt by SDM to get the assets safe until DK was back in the ring once his SARS troubles were over……

However, CG and his band had already got visions of mansions in France and despite their Rangersitis, saw the possibilities of their bank balances increasing substantially.

DK was left without his promised position at the head of the Peepil and has been trying to finagle a way back in ever since……..

Maybe for once Murray is telling the truth……….and he was indeed duped……… was DK.

Some things start to make a bit more sense if you go along those lines…………
