I know it’s not nice of me but just can’t help commenting on TRFC s result today. Well done Forfar.

It will however be a test for Mr McC and the TRFC / RIFC Boards. Is it just a one off bad result or a sign for the future? Will a Board want to pay him and maybe some of his staff off? Big sum there, plus the replacement salaries. Or will the Ranger’s man just walk, accepting that he’s not up to the task, putting the club’s needs first (but they dont do walking away or so they said)

All in all, a great afternoon, and my team also won, COYR! No armageddon in sight yet.

So CG is back as a consultant!

It’s not clear (to me at any rate) if its TRFC or RIFC that he’s back to as a consultant..The club? the company? the club company? or the company that holds the company of the club? or the club of spivs that holds the companies that hold the club?

Strange also that no questions were asked (or answered?) about how much he is getting paid for his services.

hmmmm….what’s that noise? I think I hear the bullshit detector going off…
Anyhoo, happy weekend, football fans! Now we have real football to pass the time as well as the excruciating delights of TSFM and the quest for truth.

Interesting reading in CF’s latest.
The draft business plan from 2010 is great stuff. Was this the latest source of accounts?
Some other gems ..
from their SWOT analysis, here are some of the “threats”…
-“Rangers Supporters Trust/Follow Follow and their agendas” (yep, some “threats” there all right)
-“Scottish Media – negative publicity for brand” (where did this come from?? wasn’t MH involved then too?)

And in their plans they add..
“Glamour Friendly when out of Europe” (some accurate foretelling of the future there.)

And of course not forgetting the estimates for roof repairs (3 year old costings, and three years worth of deterioration later)- around £150,000, not to mention the implications and time it would take now during the season rather than pre season if its at all urgent, and it seemed to be at the time according to their H&S survey.

Remind me…what were the SFPL going to publish from club’s returns/information for their licences?

It Is Better To Offer No Excuse Than A Bad One
Homunculus –
where’s your Xmas spirit?
Personally I’m waiting for the MSM commenting that poor Mr King has suffered enough so the TOP, the courts and the rest of us should all just move on.
We all know that:-
1 coals should not be raked over and 
2 everyone needs a strong “rangers” – else the sky might fall on our heads (is this the first Asterix reference on the site?)

Who Is Conning Whom?
Sorry for straying into club territory here, but as a dons fan, I think DM has been seriously damaged by all this and that’s why I think a disrepute charge against TRFC is appropriate.
However – if he has no intention of leaving, as he and the chairman have said, then he’s been seen to fail under the pressure. When he could have used the same attacking tactics against TRFC as other teams have and succeeded, instead he’s looked like a rabbit in headlights, minimising our strengths. Constant selection changes also seem to weaken the team, and DM now appears damaged goods not able to deliver when really necessary against our main rivals. 
Given these failings, why would TRFC want him?
I feel sorry for the guy but he should have overtly said he’s not interested during the lifetime of his contract – or until AFC sack him. At least one dons fan site has rumours that the players think he’ll leave (and take some with him later- McLean?) and he’s lost the dressing room. 
If he does stay he has work to do to regain trust. 
If he goes, well the trust was obviously misplaced, and DM will be seen in the same light as Ryan Jack, or worse.
If this was a cunning plan by an opposition team, then a disrepute charge it is, or should be – and bad show DM for falling for it and not commiting to AFC more strongly much earlier.

Who Is Conning Whom?
Well said JC,
If he does leave to a club he’s spectacularly lost two back to back games to, after weeks of media / pr pressure, then questions should indeed be asked, but of whom?
The SFA will never charge TRFC with bringing the game into disrepute over this, although it should.
AFC could have put him on leave but that could have led to DM claiming constructive dismissal, and left AFC with no compensation. It’s all very murky.
There’s no point complaining to the media about their constant bias.
What are the rules about “tapping up” managers? I’m sure if there are any, there willl be considerable scope for discretion by the SFA and burden of proof issues.
Us dons fans however are rightly suspicious that something ain’t right, and although we can like every other team blow it on occasion and often against glasgow teams, the recent selections and tactics dont show DM in a good light if he does leave – “suspicious” will then not be the appropriate word we’ll be using though…

Who Is Conning Whom?
good analysis, can I add that the timing of the Brechin game in the cup possibly helped rush through this rotten deal.
Who played Brechin indeed. If they had taken more time to consult and negotiate their wheeze it might have worked out better but in my view it was all about keeping up the pretence that Sevco were indeed RFC and this couldnt have held up if the cup game didnt happen.
What was required therefore was the invention of the ‘conditional membership’ to allow a non football club to play in the cup, thereby giving them access to the leagues. Cue the renaming of the club and hey presto! IT IS RANGERS AFTER ALL!

Enough is enough
Hirsute has just nailed the name of the next & subsequent teams out of Ibrox – Metaphysical Rangers FC.
Also wonder about the timing of Ernest’s appearance and arguments – setting the scene / rehearsing arguments for the next transformation? Well done JC & Auldheid etc for your patient replies.
