Phil’s latest.something about mega-repayment rates and faux-admin.
Phil being explicit that RIFC/TRFC dignified chaps have been passing the begging bowl around The City, without much luck.

If this had been splashed all over the DR, [I know], then would the SFA / SPFL wake up and be seen to be taking an active interest in the Ibrox club’s ability to see out the season ?

The SFA & SPFL are allowing the reputation of Scottish football to be trashed yet again, and by the ‘same club’ !

How will the media outside Scotland view the goings on at Ibrox if/when TRFC finally hits the wall ?
They might regard the Scottish top league as a joke of a set up.  
And would they be wrong ? All because of one ‘bad apple’.

Opportunity to bore begins!!!…

Thanks for sharing that information BP: you make us accountants look positively exciting!  19

…I’ll get ma calculator…

The Causes of Crime
If I was being very cynical…

With so many ‘bad news’ rumours floating about Ibrox just now, there is still one action which could provide a bit of breathing space for TRFC.

If TRFC wins on Sunday then they will have some extra cash inflow, some bragging rights – and mibbees some leverage to extort favours from the Hampden blazers…and especially if the TRFC Board expresses some doubts that TRFC would survive until the League Cup Final kicks off – at the end of November ?

Can’t imagine the SPFL would want to risk scrapping its flagship cup final because one of the teams has gone bust ?  
How embarrassing would that be for Doncaster – and also for Regan ?

Only one wee problem though…TRFC has to – somehow – win the game on Sunday…  09

The Causes of Crime

1) Phil’s latest article suggesting that RIFC/TRFC is in relatively advanced negotiations about renting Hampden.
If correct: shirley any club wanting to rent Hampden must be acceptable to the majority of senior clubs ?
Hampden is after all, the spiritual home of Scottish football.
Any club allowed to rent the stadium must uphold the best values of Scottish football…you would think ?
If TRFC is allowed to call Hampden ‘home’ – even if only for one season – then the game is well and truly fffff…, erm, busted, IMO.

2) Phil is again confirming that the MD, Stewart Robertson is ‘AWOL’.
To me, this is the first tangible validation that the Ibrox dam is teetering on collapse, [i.e. can’t hold back all the water ! 14 ]

It Is Better To Offer No Excuse Than A Bad One
Just a wild idea…

But, what if King declared himself bankrupt?
[Well in a court recently, he did claim he was ‘penniless’].

Of course anyone who knows of the glib and shameless one would assume King would have assets hidden, or in his wife’s name – a la wee Bazza?

Would bankruptcy effectively kill off the TOP sanctions?

At this point it seems that King’s reputation is ruined in Scotland – and with the bears and even with the SMSM?

King’s time is up playing charades as ‘the Rangers saviour’, and he must – you would think – be thinking about preserving his remaining wealth as he approaches retirement…?  09

Mibbees after 20 years of failure, the national team and the SFA don’t deserve a dedicated, national stadium?

And Hampden is simply not worth keeping as a football venue for mainly sentimental reasons, IMO.

CO, I think Phil’s scoop about the manner of Nicholl’s appointment deserves a: Wow Just Wow!
It displays how dysfunctional the management structure at Ibrox has become, and you would think, it is a massive red flag.
[Apart from having no cash.]

I also have my fingers and toes crossed that in 2018 my £20 bet on TRFC finishes bottom 6 comes in – with the help of an Admin. event.

[Thanks to fellow Bampots for the tip: interestingly Sky wouldn’t accept a £50 bet for a 150/1 long shot…]

All the best for 2018 Bampots!

And just have to add this headline from the esteemed DR, so it must be true;

“Bluenoses out of joint as Rangers pub to be turned into gay sauna’s bar”

Couldn’t possibly comment on the article…but a couple of sentences did jump out as sounding familiar;

“…Annie Millers was one of Glasgow’s most hardcore Rangers haunts and it was a real shock for a lot of fans when it closed last year.
A lot of drinkers were hoping that someone might rescue the pub so it could reopen as it was before. This definitely won’t happen now…

Guessing it’s quiet as the Bampots have been out watching the footy…or getting dragged around the shops by their better half for the sales ?!

Wife told me last night about the Dembele ‘sale’.
Immediate reaction was that it was nonsense from the SMSM.

There ‘could’ be some truth in it: e.g. an off-the-record tip from either CFC or Dembele’s agent, perhaps to simply instigate a bidding war ?

But, my initial reaction to any big story is to always doubt the SMSM’s veracity: the lamb munchers were exposed a long time ago…and it’s a surprise that the DR in particular is still on sale in hard copy format. 

If he is sold for X millions, how will the SMSM / Level42 spin that as ‘bad news’ for CFC…and bad for Scottish football ?  22
