I was wondering why Chuckles was prostituting himself to Five Live, Sky Sports News and the rest yesterday. Shirley he has better things to do with his time with the impending IPA?


IPO? Unless Charlie is getting the beer in!

There is brass neck and then there is Charles Green

Rangers chief Green: SPL stole our money
The last time I checked, theft was a criminal offence in this country, and you can’t usually make accusations of theft against anyone with impunity unless you can back it up. Has this “theft” been reported to the police? I thought not. And what exactly do the SPL intend doing to defend their good name (no siniggering at the back, please!)? Nothing whatsoever? I thought as much.

Now can anyone explain to me how Charles Green obtained this exemption from the laws and rules which govern what everyone else is allowed to say? This man can apparently say whatever he wants with no consequences whatsoever. It’s a funny wee country, Scotland.

The ‘I didnae come up the Clyde in a banana boat’ phrase may well, or may not, have had an originally racist meaning, but its use these days is generally taken as just a Scottish term for ‘how gullible do you think I am?

Spot on, I was brought up in Bridgeton in the 50’s, and my mother and aunties used “banana boat” interchangeably with “bike” and “watter biscuit”. There was no connotation other than total implausibility. There was only one form of racism in the Glasgow of the 50’s, and it had nothing to do with your skin colour.

Discrepancies of between 6-10k in attendances between Police & CGs figs are due to people in Hospitality etc.
Obviously a very hospitable club!

Warburton recruits another of the Brentford backroom boys-

Looks like “Moneyball” is coming to Scotland with this one. And is there anyone left at Brentford- apart from former Ibrox Wonderkid Lewis Macleod?

Scottish Football: An Honest Game, Honestly Governed?

Just saw this after my previous post. It sort of ties in with my own thoughts on where this is going.

Scottish Football: An Honest Game, Honestly Governed?
I see that the RIFC share price has been on an upward trend for a few weeks now, it has reached 30p today from a low of 24p, admittedly on thin trading.

Am I being too cynical in thinking that the share price reflects the improved chances of RIFC getting rid of TRFC once and for all, while retaining the properties? If that can be done, and soon, then the shares look cheap at 30p. If it isn’t done, then all the future holds for the shares is dilution, as cash calls are made to keep TRFC afloat.

I think the market believes the football side is about to be ditched. I can’t make sense of a rising share price otherwise.

The Wallace statement just confirms for me that in business terms he is a lightweight, and that he is totally out of his depth in the Ibrox snakepit. Loads of words to say nothing- why not take the opportunity to answer King’s questions? The fact that he doesn’t confirm that the properties are unencumbered, for example, just invites the conclusion that they are, in fact, encumbered. To my simple way of thinking, anyway.
