Comment on The Blind Men and the Elephant, a cautionary tale by Famous song.

I TU’d GJ’s video, so bury me if you will. OT to some extent, but the best version I saw was one where our Austrian friend has discovered Miley Cyrus has done a cover of Smells Like Teen Spirit. Comedy gold, as I believe you youngsters say.

The Blind Men and the Elephant, a cautionary tale
At the legendary Recreation Stadium, Alloa, yesterday afternoon, I would have to say that discussion of Paul Hartley centred on his desire for full time football rather than any conspiracy theories, and that we’re pleased the new chap has such an obvious pedigree. Although, Clackmannan Road is the permanent address of wait-and-see. Other topics included cup final venues (show respect for AFC and ICT fans, they may like wifi, roofing, and maintenance), and the fact that we all had Sevco supporting friends with competing levels of incomprehension.

Did I mention the football? No? Probably just as well.


The Blind Men and the Elephant, a cautionary tale
I note with considerable interest that Alloa Athletic are about to reveal Barry Smith as our new manager. Alloa legend Barry (we grant them the honorific immediately, lest we forget later on) will hope to fill the metaphorically large shoes of Sir Paul Hartley, the last man to win SFL Division 3 without losing his employers north of fourteen million quid. Where the SMSM may struggle a little is with Barry’s CV. He was Dundee manager when they were catapulted into the SPL in 2012, after Rangers resigned their place (belatedly, it is thought in some circles), having failed to agree a CVA. The resulting gap in the SFL was eventually plugged by applicants Sevco Scotland, as they were still called. How this circumstance can be squared with the Ibrox giants being shamefully relegated through the leagues by hate filled maniacs, fuelled by jealousy, hatred and fortified wine, may prove an interesting diversion.

Thanks, Big Gav at 5:53. I am a Wasp of small brain.

Humour me here, I’m a specialist in not much more than gazing out the window. One of the highlights of the RIFC Annual Report 2013 was a figure on page 25 (the balance sheet bit), for current assets, of £16.163m, as “amounts due from subsidiary undertakings”. Note 15 says this is: “amounts due to RIFC from The Rangers Football Club Ltd represents (sic) the proceeds of the Initial Public Offering less costs incurred in the fundraising. The net funds from this activity have been made available to the subsidiary as working capital.”

Try as I might, I can’t find any reference to this in the interims. All help gratefully received, preferably not involving words like simpleton.

Just the one trade today in RIFC shares, and that for only 2,000. Perhaps someone more market savvy than I would like to comment? Is it just quiet? Or suspiciously quiet?
