Comment on THAT Debate, and the Beauty of Hindsight by jockybhoy.

IIRC if a loan is received to a company doesn’t it appear on both sides of the balance sheet? As cash in the assets but as a liability in loans liable? Now the interest would make the liability higher than the loan under normal circumstances but if the loan is interest free it’d just be equivalent. Why would anyone do this? As has been said the requirement is for short term cash, the presence of longer term liabilities is apparently of little consequence. Unfortunately, as we know, these liabilities add up over time, until the straw breaks the camel’s back…
I am sure my fellow Essex boy EBC can steer me right on this.

BTW these lessons apparently unlearned down Ibrox (and indeed Hampden) way…

I wonder how much will be due to NewGers players in terms of bonuses for qualifying for Europe? If they do fall at an early hurdle in the Europa League then that may leave them further out of pocket, given costs incurred and low prize money…

THAT Debate, and the Beauty of Hindsight
NAWLITE: ” wondered how many of those types of result it might take before TRFC* fans decided it was better to admit that they were a new club and therefore couldn’t be expected to be competitive. “I seem to remember stating my preference along these lines back around the phoenixing of TRFC.

I’d probably reference the classics – comparing the Roman razing Carthage and salting its earth versus&nbsp to the punishment of the Greek titan Prometheus getting his liver eaten on a daily basis.

Who Is Conning Whom?
“Take away non-reoccurring expenditure like stadium repairs and Sports Direct compensation and add historical retail profits plus some extra football prize money” – so take away actual costs and add hypothetical revenue and hey presto the books will balance!

With financial acumen like that, you should be on the NewGers board!

The Vice Closes
After these distressed assets, only of use to a football team, actively playing in a professional league, were bought, there were immediately revalued:
“Revaluation increase on land and buildings is put at £33.98 million in total, though the club also notes if those properties were to be sold at that value the tax bill would be £7.8 million.
…Finance director Brian Stockbridge said: “A revaluation process was undertaken during the period; Ibrox stadium and Murray Park were revalued at £40 million, and intangibles (brand and er history? JB) were valued at £19 million on acquisition.”
Administrators of the oldco Rangers, Duff & Phelps, sold the “intangible” assets to Green’s consortium for £1.” Source:

Arguably the fact that it was sold to a football team who could make use of the facilities there was a greater value than £4.5m that wasn’t realised, but that may be being churlish.
What we do know is that all the assets of worth were bought for £5.5m and that included everything, property, brand, history, fixtures and fittings, seemingly playing contracts (people are assets too – I’ve been sold in my time! JB) as well as prize money apparently owed to the previous entity…
For the full breakdown I refer you to the sadly missed Paul McConville site:
its clear the assets were hugely undervalued when sold. 

The Lost Voice of the Armageddon Virus
Hasn’t Chris Sutton also said Alves is going to Ibrox? He probably was tipped off by someone and obviously King’s statement was well crafted. Annual PR overdrive.
Remember what they say “loose lips sell tix”

Small Price to Pay?
Finloch: “Rangers are in a box just waiting the for the lid to be closed when liquidation is complete.”
Aha! The old “Reverse Schroedinger Cat Conundrum” – either dead or alive until the box shuts. Love it. I am using that next time I speak to an intelligent death-denier.

The Day I was on the Scotland U-23 Bench
Ex Ludo – no worries, 2 hrs behind where I am anyway… maybe I am a half full kinda guy – maybe I filled in the gaps in the article with what I “know” to be true. I was pretty much chased off CQN for being too “board friendly” many years ago… hence my concern that some Celtic fans seem to almost want to prove the board wrong under almost any circumstances. They demand we give x, y or z a fair hearing but go into discussion with their own club with preconceived grievances and axes to grind.

I support Celtic – our board have done well for Celtic, therefore I support our board. A Pyrrhic victory over some , effectively esoteric point, means little to me in the balance of things. I know this puts me at odd with many of the luminaries on here, but in football as in life, i take the wins where I can get them…
