Re: Record story on Wallace. Clearly a placed come and get him story with price tag attached. So by my reading they need 1.4 million to survive until ST time. Desperate stuff.

Indeed it is, I was always under the impression that when you have a fire sale, you can’t be too choosy about how much you get for your unwanted stock……
I would guess that Wallace is stock they would like to hold onto but it’s the unwanted stock on the daft wages they will find very hard to shift. Thus Wallace being one of the few sellable assets.
Not heard anything about the return of Whyte but nothing would surprise me any more. I think we are becoming numb as to how ridiculous things have become. The General Clutchers desperate last stand in the battle over little Westhorn is just amazing. If you take a minute out and ponder over what this omnishambles has evolved into.

I noticed this reply on the latest Thomo blog. I’m sure I’ve heard this name somewhere before 🙂

Craig Whyte tried this line with a Scottish tabloid a couple of days ago but they weren’t gullible enough to use it.

Give it a rest Alex and get on with some real journalism.

The introduction to Tom English’s piece this morning:-

LAST summer, when Ally McCoist’s request for nine new players was granted by his then chief executive, Craig Mather,……………..

Especially if too much money was paid to those nine players. Say for instance we pluck a number of say 15% over the odds paid. What would be the ramifications this year 🙂

So Ally does his calculations on the bag of a fag packet. I never even knew he was a smoker. Anyway it seems that decisions taken a year ago are hurting the club financially to this day. Ally is not to blame because speculators did it and ran away. I find it strange that the old CEOs wouldn’t ask the manager for his opinion on the cost and length of contract that should be the going rate for the players that were signed last year. But that couldn’t have been the case otherwise a manager who decides a player on the shite side of average should be paid several thousand pounds a week then surely that manager would have to shoulder some of the blame.

Not posted for a while but keeping up to date. Had a strange one today. Thought I would log onto Traynors level 5 twitter account, despite never having tweeted them or read any of their tweets I found I was blocked!
I don’t post on any fan sites and my twitter user name is different to my username on here. Very strange. Anyone else had anything similar with our PR guru?

When you have the gold of Sierra Madre in the pipeline why would you even start to worry about having badges?

Just flying back from Augusta and got quite a relieved call from Mrs Spieth. She was so worried that the first year her son won the tournament old wag Dermott would break tradition and speak with the DR. She added, “I heard that mr Desmond was going to speak with Euan and I almost ran onto the 17th fairway to tell Jordan to shank it into the trees. Can you imagine the embarrassment of winning the tournament and being overshadowed by the big interview” “well right up until the cards were signed it was touch and go, the sweat was running down my shuck” she added. Then she got word the interview was a non starter. “The ghost of Old Tom Morris came up, grabbed me by the arm and said, “don’t worry hen I have it on authority that he ain’t gonna speak” “well that was that and I could concentrate on Jordan’s shots coming down the 18th “. “Phew”.
