From RM … how to quickly double the money you extract from simple bears:

“No biggie . . . but i went through the online payment there to make a £500 payment, when i got to the end it said ‘payment was unsuccessful, please return to Rangers website’ (or thereabouts)

so i did it again, this time it took me to the final page and payment was accepted, all good.

just checked my bank there and it looks like it took £1000 (fly bassa Charlie) but my email confirmation is just for £500 (confused), don’t mind if it ends up being £1000 but i’d like some sort of confirmation.”

Is there any evidence that he made this ‘promise’?

Mr Green (6 June 2012):
“We will be taking Rangers forward to better days and one idea I put forward today is my plan to rename Murray Park.

‘Following discussions with the supporters, we will be asking season-ticket holders to vote on whether to rename Murray Park either the Moses McNeil Academy or the Davie Cooper Academy. We will be asking supporters to vote when they renew their season tickets.”

I thoroughly believe that Mr Green timed this share issue very deliberately. As said before, he’s far from being a stupid man business-wise.
———
based on what? his string of highly successful, international businesses that touch our lives daily?

No.

or a string of insolvencies, liquidations and asset stripping operations?

Yes.

He may be smart, but who benefits from his smarts? the employees, small shareholders and customers of Sevco?

None of the above.

I cannot believe that Mr Green felt morally compelled to organise the share sale for the week before Xmas simply because he promised it’d be before the end of the year.

When he actually “promised” this, I’m not sure. In August, he said in the Herald: “We are hoping to announce our plans in the next couple of weeks, which are on track for it being done before the end of this year.” Mr Green voiced his flotation hopes as he unveiled a major merchandising joint venture with billionaire Newcastle United owner Mike Ashley’s Sports Direct retail chain.

Meanwhile, Rangers Megastore appear to be selling replica kit at half price across the board. I wonder why only the Away and 3rd kits have the five stars on them?

The share issue will obviously be a “success”.

The figure to be raised has always been quoted as £20m. With his “institutional investors” (whatever/whoever that means) having apparently coughed £17m, and this morning’s fan figure quoted at £3-5m, then that figure would appear to have been reached.

Of course, Mr Green must have had a good idea all along that he’d be able to use that £17m figure.

He knew all along how this was going to pan out. The share issue to fans is nothing but a smoke screen designed to keep those of blind faith onside, whilst raising a relatively unimportant few quid on the side.

For an effective claim to be made it should be forceful and expeditious.

Trite comment: Try telling that to many 1970s TV presenters.

Real comment: Evidence gathering can take a long time, particularly where co-operation is not forthcoming. Justice is operated by heavy, slow-moving wheels.

A little light relief from the lad Mohsni (unfortunately “not a big name like Spanish Archer McCulloch”), talking in the Daily Record:

I thought the poor fellow was simply a rubbish fitba player, but he appears to also be a marble or two short.

(P.S. Split infinitives, I love ’em. Use them whenever I can – it’s a nonsensical “rule” of grammar. 🙂 )

🙂 Surely you mean a Saniner? I spent many a happy summer day at Sanine beach, having walked over the hill fae Portsoy. Brilliant gun emplacement and tank traps. There was a great summer cafe in the old Church hall (I think it was) with a juke box and everything!

Upthehoops – I’m afraid that you may be taking a Glasgow-centric view there. I have a couple of excellent Irish friends here in Aberdeenshire. The only problem at all people here have with anyone of Irish descent is, dare I say it, when they’re part of the travelling community.

Danish – I also grew up in the East End. The East End of Portsoy. I assume that’s where you meant? 😉
