Comment on THAT Debate, and the Beauty of Hindsight by Cygnus X-1.

Yesterday and today, I was at the High Court, having received a jury citation, unfortunately, it wasn’t for the Craig Whyte trial, but during a break,I had the pleasure of complimenting Mr Findlay, on his performance to date, he was modest and said “long way to go yet”….
I also had a look around the crowded foyer, for a few of the denizens of this place, but didn’t feel comfortable, walking up to total strangers, offering a funny handshake and saying “SFM, are you a member”14
I think for occasions such as this, we need t-shirts or badges, maybe a secret code word-:)

THAT Debate, and the Beauty of Hindsight
It’s perhaps instructive to recall from a football perspective, that RFC had two £4m strikers in their ranks, from 2008-2011. Kyle Lafferty was the other one, whereas my team and every other club in Scottish Football didn’t.

Today we learned in court to seal the Jelavic deal, RFC borrowed money from Ticketus, which wasn’t disclosed in the accounts. Isn’t that a sporting advantage, especially when they knew the wolf was at the door, and the entire Murray edifice, was in the process of collapsing and they couldn’t possibly repay this debt, if it was called in?

Lindsay Herron is indeed a man, and is alive and kicking. In charge of Rangers Media for a time, as well as, writer & broadcaster of all things blue nosed.
Like Chris Jack, Keith Jackson, Richard Wilson et al, he is one of a type of Scottish Journalists, who would be best described, as fans with typewriters. Unfortunately, most of his and their current output, with regard to the Ibrox based entity, would now fit the description of fantasy writers, quite delusional fantasies, if truth to be told

Thank you for posting this link, it is quite a read. Quite incredible, DCK’s approach in this matter, he simply cracks on and does what he wants, and when requested by the law, to explain his actions, he ignores, obfuscates and denies his involvement.

It’s difficult to resist the temptation, to indulge in Freudian Psychology, and wonder what drives him to behave in such a fashion, bearing in mind, that his reputation has already been traduced by the South African Courts?
It beggars belief, that any business would want King, within a million miles of their club, excepting of course, the average mug punter, fuelled by the propaganda of the daily SMSM, that he had a warchest ready to take on “Timmy”.

Where will King end up, prison, skint, a pariah, or living it up in Africa surrounded by his wine collection sipping a glass laughing at those idiots back in Scotland?  

I know what my money is on

It Is Better To Offer No Excuse Than A Bad One

Yes, the continuing myopia that characterises the unthinking element of that support. I can’t think of one reason, logical or otherwise, why King would waste another thin dime on that business, pre-supposing of course, that he has been doing that previously, because with him, one never actually knows?

What was clear from my friends’ reactions last night, and the discussion, which ensued, is the decision by the COS, has a similar feel to the days of administration, and the CVA being rejected, it feels seismic?  

It Is Better To Offer No Excuse Than A Bad One
This is an annual post for me. Was out last night with all my friends, and we’re split down the middle between Celtic & Rangers fans. My RFC friends have been very quiet for some time, there’s been general chit chat about football, but nothing, repeat nothing specific about the travails of the club currently operating out of Ibrox? It’s just too painful for them to discuss….

Last night was different. I prompted the conversation by asking “who’s getting a Xmas bonus then & selling their shares at 20p”?

To a man, all three said yes, the sooner the better. All had purchased a £500 package of shares in the IPO, as a way of giving their “club” some much needed revenue, after Green assumed control. For all three, it was an emotional investment, now however, they’d seen events unfold, and coldly realised this was the best deal they were going to get, and have absolutely no problems, of selling them at the first opportunity

I don’t know what this says about the wider supporter base of smaller shareholders, but if it’s a pattern, then Mr King might have a big dunt in his £11m?  

Who Is Conning Whom?

As Celtic are the only member club, thus far, to ask the SFA, to re-examine this issue, and should your deduction prove to be true, what are Celtic’s options at that point?

Can they take it further, presumably to Uefa, or even a judicial review? Would the Res 12 group on Celtic’s behalf look to promulgate this further?

Could it be, that if what you say might happen, actually happens, does that open the door to Celtic potentially going “all guns blazing”?

I would certainly welcome that…;

Who Is Conning Whom?
So, it seems that there is great online interest in this potential CW book? Is it a Hitler Diaries episode or the real thing?

6 years ago, I would’ve been salivating at such a product, but now, after everything that’s happened, I must confess, that my interest has completely waned, given that simply, we know more or less the full story?

However, one outcome would change my thinking, and that is, if such a book shines a light, on the collusion, and corruptness of the SFA, SPL, & all the nefarious individuals, involved at the time, including the clubs, and hopefully leading to the removal of these individuals, and significant structural change, in the way that Scottish football is governed.

Indeed, if CW can be the catalyst of this type of change, then perhaps, he is the John the Baptist figure, that we’ve all been longing for, and he can rest assured that I’ll be spending quite of a bit of my children’s Xmas present money on his tome.

Enough is enough

I nearly choked on my Crunchy Nut Cornflakes, when reading Cluster’s suggestion. Can you imagine the meltdown of the Bearmacht, if the SFA moved lock, stock & barrel into the new CP Hotel, when built-:))

Unseen Fenian Hand indeed, but would potentially deliver such top comedy, as to be seriously considered
