Re conjecture of TRFC’ future – on the assumption King does not make an offer , the future would seem to be open for a wealthy group of RRM to step up & buy King’s shareholding & work with the Easdales – there are a lot of wealthy people who have supported the club in the past through Club Deck Boxes , sponsorship etc , people like Jim McColl (I know he is now not interested in investing but might change his mind if working with people of a similar mind) or Billy Walker ex Burn Stewart Distillers who sold out for approx £75 m a couple of years ago . 

A new group with the Easdales could possibly re-negotiate a more productive deal with Ashley & keeping him on board at the same time – set up the club/company on a more sure-footed basis with transparency & honesty (for real this time) & work with Club1872 – then again I’m sure someone has thought about this scenario before looked at the numbers & ran a mile !

AJ @ 15.05 – reduced PR outpourings – maybe that cost (PR) is being deemed expendable at the moment (isn’t Traynor closely aligned to Murray/King axis)

Re : King/Takeover Panel Decision

In to-day’s Times , Michael Grant asked DK for his reaction to the decision – his response included “I would have to make an offer & there would have to be 50% acceptance of that offer which means Ashley , the Easdales & Club 1872 would have to accept . I think the chance of it being accepted is really remote . I think it is pretty much a non-issue .”
There is no mention of an offer being prepared other than a quote of “I have to think what I want to do about it” , he ends up stating “I have to decide whether to appeal it or not” . 
I understand he has already appealed & the judgement was given on his appeal on March 13 , so really not much further on as to what he is going to do but time is not on his side , April 12 will come soon enough .

Homunculus @ 12.23 – thanks for that – I am surprised , will be interesting to see the uptake on “his” offer .

Re: Managerial Appointments @ the Rangers FC

I would expect Robertson’s position to be under review after 3 farces in the space of a year more or less .

Re : McInnes

Well,well,well – a sensible decision on his part I think – wonder what affected his decision – had a look “under the bonnet” & didn’t like the look of it or the Govan tribal stirrings re Docherty – as Phil would say “developing story” – makes the Level5 media campaign look pretty silly .

Re McInnes/Rangers

This situation reminds me of 1983 when the mighty Glasgow Rangers approached Jim McLean to take over from a failing John Greig – everyone in the media then assumed Jim would go (he was offered twice the salary he was getting at United) he went up the marble staircase had the interview & to his eternal credit told them where to shove it ! (This was after the job was offered to Alex Ferguson first of all who also knocked it back ) – two v.successful managers of “provincial” clubs similar , in a way to McInnes’ situation to-day .

Difficult one to call (for McInnes) but his reputation would be enhanced if he stays at Aberdeen I think & the risks of Ibrox (financial/ownership) are considerable .

Enough is enough
Re JJ – I know he is not everyone’s favourite but I think credit should be given to him/her for the contribution to The Rangers’ debate over the past week in particular .
The COPFS revelation of the Whitehouse contribution to the inquiry was quite stunning in its content & to-day’s input from his CFA with regard to the Rangers’ accounts is also stimulating .
Anyway , I’m sure Homunc will be giving me a thumbs down for this !
And , as a counter-balance as a DUFC supporter I’m still awaiting JJ’ story re an American takeover to be confirmed !

Enough is enough
