If we’re looking at lyrics of The Who songs, I would suggest that “Won’t Get Fooled Again” may be more appropriate than “Who Are You” when it comes to the machinations of the Ibrox franchise

You could come up with a multitude of song titles that would so fit what’s go on Govan way.
I’m watching Leeds Rhinos’ Superleague match at Huddersfield at the moment, and the players came onto the pitch to the strains of Harry J Allstars’ The Liquidator.
I know that Chelsea have used that tune at Stamford Bridge for many years, and it got me wondering as to whether any SPFL clubs use it.
I was well impressed that they still use Into the Valley by The Skids at East End Park (the late Stuart Adamson was brought up in Dunfermline).

speaking of the intro tunes for clubs – the mighty Fife always grace our presence to this classic

(Scottish Football needs a strong 60s instrumental)
Excellent tune.
I’m fairly sure I’ve got that on vinyl somewhere in the house.

I see that Platini is now being questioned about unclear payments. No doubt our lads in the MSM wil have something to say about that. However no one has had the balls to ask Souness about his EBT payment from the oldco and what that related to given he didn’t appear to be an employee at the time.
Did they ever clear up the mystery surrounding the £100K David Longmuir bonus that surfaced two years back?

You would be forgiven for thinking that Warbs had a financial investment in these players,it wouldn’t be so,would it!!!
You could also be forgiven for thinking that a large proportion of the SMSM had a financial investment in selfsame players, such is the square footage of guff dedicated to boosting their status within the game. :slamb: 👿 :slamb:

It’s nice to see that the BBC is carolling from the SkySports songsheet in the above article.
“OF” mentioned twice and some top level liquidation denial thrown in for good measure.

Any chance of this happening in Scotland?

What do the various Rangers have to show for their loans fundamentally hee haw I believe. Nothing has been done to build potential long term income streams via improved facilities or some other projects. It seems that the assets have declined in value and future fixed costs are likely to rise in the form of deferred maintenance. There may be a baldrickian plan and opportunity available for some rich tax pauchler but I do not know what it is -perhaps some advice should be sought.
I suspect that rather than one of Baldrick’s cunning plans, they will go with the tried and tested Earl Haig’s underpants over the head and pencils up the nostrils. And we all know how that ended up.
It wasn’t the admininistration and liquidation to end all administrations and liquidations though. Deja vu?

Using EBTs incorrectly in order to reduce your tax was never a “loophole” it was classic tax avoidance.
Tax avoidance is not and never has been perfectly acceptable as some people would have you believe. That is tax management.
Tax avoidance is using a legitimate scheme, incorrectly, for a purpose which was never intended.
Investing in an ISA is tax management.
Using an EBT to receive contractual payments is tax avoidance.
That’s heading into tax evasion territory.

upthehoopsNovember 25, 2016 at 07:11 “9. …and they all lived happily ever after.” SmugasNovember 25, 2016 at 07:27 “..at a cost (to them) of between £1-3 million per annum. And if they can do that without our contribution..” _____________ But fear not! The 4-year-old club will get a bob or two from the friendly with RB Leipzig in January, and, the rumour mill grinds out, a lucrative sponsorship deal from the owners of that 7-year-old club, none other than Red Bulls.it.  Possibly even a buy-in!
Would they bring out a special OrangeBull to mark the occasion?
500M potential worldwide customers could generate a huge turnover, and with the club/company/engine room subsidiary getting 1p cashback for every 1,000,000 unit sales of OrangeBull that could solve the funding plan (or is it business plan?) gap almost overnight.
I’m sure Neil Patey would confirm that to be the case.
