Interestingly another Twitter user spoofing reporting from court mentioned Lord Turnbull as the presiding judge too
Lord Tyre is presiding over the ‘other’ case. The one that was held on Tuesday and pushed out to November
The Case for a New SFA.
I have to say, I thoroughly enjoyed the gathering yesterday evening, even though, like Yakutsuki, I had to leave a tad early. With a projector and screen set up, I thought BP had a slide show in store for us, but he didn’t need one. The discussion was engaging and interesting. Nice to put faces (and names) to names.
Thanks to Ryan G for the suggestion and to BP for working to make it happen and to everyone who was able to attend. I’d bet that the next one will be way busier.

FC United of Manchester leading the way again. Just like the living wage

I think he mentioned a ‘deal could be done with the SFA’ but reality is a newco newco has to seek admiitance to the SPFL over again. Or would the other 41 clubs agitate to parachute a newco newco into a higher league?
One would imagine that, should a newco newco be created, any admittance to the SPFL would have to be subject to a playoff against the lowland/highland team that would otherwise be playing the bottom placed League 2 team.
It would hardly seem reasonable to do otherwise. 🙂

If 50% of the people have to take up the offer then how does that defend the position of small shareholders, which is the point of the rule as I understand it.
It’s not 50% of the people. It’s enough shares to take the concert parties holding to 50%+1. If they already have 35.5% or thereabouts, it’s less than 15% of all shares; about 24% of the shares out there that they don’t already hold. He will undoubtedly try to stiff Margarita/Blue whatsisname etc by trying to claim they can’t trade their shares, so that could end up in court again
Enough is enough
I’d like to see statistics regarding the ground covered by the various players last night. I lost count of the number of relatively tight TV shots where 3 or fewer Celtic players were ‘covered’ by 8 or more outfield Bayern players. They were everywhere

I wonder how DK’s legals satisfied themselves that they would get their fees? Is it the practice for QCs to ask for money up front? Or will King be able to claim on the ‘directors’ liability’ insurance cover?
John, I think PMG has blogged that he asked the RIFC board to cover his legal expenses and they said no. As for Director’s liability, I’m not sure it would cover this

Alisdair Lamont not at court today
Hopefully someone else will live tweet it. If I had known I might have gone down there myself, being unexpectedly at home
