Comment on Spot the difference? by Billy Boyce.

jambocol1874 re: Raith Rovers selling tickets directly to TRFC fans. When I have bought a ticket for the away support end at Kilmarnock and Mothwerwell etc I have completed a form with my name and address on it. I presume Raith Rovers would adopt a similar procedure of recording the purchaser and seat location. Wouldn’t it then be a simple task to pass on this paperwork to the police and/or offending supporters’ club?

There is an air of huge expectation regarding events down Edmiston Drive way tomorrow. (I wonder if I will be able to sleep tonight?) What I am looking forward to is not the proceedings from the Homebase gazebo on the pitch but the celebratory press conference afterwards.

This could be Jim Traynor’s finest hour and the point at which his PR firm really takes off. Are we to see Dave King and his entourage being rushed to Level 5’s Blythwood Square HQ in order that the new Ibrox supreme can speak to the nation? Naturally, the gentlemen of the press will be attending strictly by invitation, with award-winning journalists given pride of place to “grill” the incoming Messiah.

That’s the London Stock Exchange confirming now that the Rangers egm will indeed go ahead as scheduled.

Ashley’s “punishment”

A Disciplinary Tribunal convened last night in accordance with the Judicial Panel Protocol to consider the following case:

Alleged Party in breach – Michael Ashley

Disciplinary rules allegedly breached –

Disciplinary Rule 19: Except with the prior written consent of the Board: (a) no club or nominee of a club; and (b) no person, whether absolutely or as a trustee, either alone or in conjunction with one or more associates or solely through an associate or associates (even where such person has no formal interest), who: (i) is a member of a club; or (ii) is involved in any capacity whatsoever in the management or administration of a club, or (iii) has any power whatsoever to influence the management or administration or a club, may at the same time either directly or indirectly:- (a) be a member of another club; or (b) be involved in any capacity whatsoever in the management or administration of another club; or (c) have any power whatsoever to influence the management or administration of another club.

Outcome – Mr Ashley was found in breach and a fine of £7500 was imposed.

Disciplinary Rule 77: A recognised football body, club, official, Team Official, other member of Team Staff, player, match official or other person under the jurisdiction of the Scottish FA shall, at all times, act in the best interests of Association Football.

Outcome – The alleged breach was not proved.

Sorry, the Sunday Mail extract I posted (above) omitted the Mark Allen article – now attached

Does anyone else suspect that  Mr Allen may see his future elsewhere.
—————————————-
It looks as if there is a whispering campaign against Allen within the Blue Room.  The Sunday Mail article (attached) suggests Mark is getting his retaliation in first before he becomes the next club official to ‘resign’.  Even the Herald feels the need to give its tuppenceworth on his role in this latest saga.  I wonder who has suddenly turned the spotlight on the esteemed Director of Football?

Does impecuniosity trump concomitant?

” Given the circumstances put forward by the respondent in support of his supposed impecuniosity they are of no significance. His impecuniosity is entirely self-generated….the Trusts have been willing to provide money for the purchase of Rangers shares when the respondent wished them to do so. Now, suddenly, when the respondent does not wish to comply with the terms of Rule 9 the Trusts no longer are willing to provide any money. “

As an aside it is obvious Lord Bannatyne wants things off his desk before the festive break.
————————————— 
If indeed His Lordship promulgates his judgment on Friday 22nd then I for one would be highly suspicious of the baffling delay in doing so.  Lord Bannatyne was required to make a comparatively simple ruling on whether he “may” or “must” decide.  It is not as if he was tasked with safeguarding the constitution of the realm.  Even sending a felon to the gallows would not entail the length of time this matter has sat on his desk.
 
With the recent flurry of activity down Ibrox way, I wonder if Lord Bannatyne has deliberately waited until certain moves have been completed so that any ‘cold shoulder’ process against King becomes superfluous.  Time and truth will tell.

Sour grapes or just some mischief making?  I heard on Radio Scotland’s sports slot this morning that Chris Jack is reporting there’s more to the McInnes appointment saga than meets the eye.  Apparently, progress talks even got as far as Derek selecting the Ibrox side for the Ross County game on Saturday.  Has the Concomitant King instructed his PR guru to stir the pot?
