Comment on Reflections on Goalposts by No1 Bob.

“RANGERS Football Club was yesterday given the go-ahead for a multi-million pound development to include a hotel and shops near its Ibrox stadium.
It is hoped the development, reportedly costing 350 million, will breath new life into the run-down Govan area of Glasgow.
Glasgow City Council yesterday agreed to transfer the land to Rangers. The club chairman, Sir David Murray, will now look for partners for the development.”

“agreed to transfer the land to Rangers” I don’t know about others but this reads to me like a gift. Perhaps even a state aid gift!

The Reserve Bank for SA has published these guidelines. Different rules apply to overseas investments for individuals and company’s. If Dave decides to invest then the amount will be governed by how he structures the investment.

One thing is for sure. The SA tax authorities will be all over any investment like a rash making sure everything is above board.

So River and Mercantile Asset Management LLP bought 1.7m of the approx. 2.5m shares that were sold on Friday.

My questions are this – who sold, why did they sell and was the sale linked to the departure of Brian Stockbridge?

Podcast Episode 5 – Hibs Takeover ?

Tonight of all nights we should remind ourselves that Barry received the second highest EBT totalling £2.5m. Only Sir Dave got more.

Any sympathy that I had for Legia evaporated into nothing this afternoon. Their call for ‘sporting integrity’ is nothing short of blackmail and is a poor attempt to cover up their own failings.

Only one team is responsible for the position that Legia finds themselves in and that team is Legia.

Or Ilegia as they will forever be known in my house.

Ally has spoken. “It’s not my fault”

The Way it Works
In the absence of a Bryson Interpretation of the UEFA rules Legia should point out that it was The Company that owns the club and not the club itself that broke the rules.

The Company decided to play the player. The club received no sporting advantage. Any punishment should be handed to The Company and not the club who, as we all know, have been punished enough.

Ring ring. Ring ring.
