I don’t know what to make of the JJ stuff in general. His recent posts are getting perilously close to a public trial in advance of those awaiting the attention of the courts next month. Is the idea to give the defence in the criminal cases an “out” by claiming that pre-trial publicity makes a fair trial impossible? I really don’t know, but if so, that’s a risky strategy for Mr JJ personally, I would suggest.
JJ’s motivation has interested me from my first encounter with him on the LSE share site. Is he a Rangers supporter as he claims? Is he a simple truth seeker, as he also claims? I can’t answer either of those questions, but he clearly spends a great deal of time on his blog, and doesn’t appear to solicit any funding to support his efforts. Nothing wrong with that, of course, but a bit unusual, all the same.
I see that even his most loyal follower, Gordo, (most definitely a true blue Ibrox fan) is starting to get a bit hacked off with JJ’s constant drip drip of bad news about “Rangers” past and present. But then maybe I am overthinking this- it wouldn’t be the first time!

Clearly the SFA have failed to consult Hamilton Accies before offering up THEIR ground for the EK v Celtic match. Just how bad does the shambles at the SFA have to get, before the mass clear-out begins. The clubs need to get a grip on this dysfunctional clown show urgently, and I mean like now.

I don’t think these men will take kindly to being referred to as “charlatans” ‘
I wonder whether the saintly Walter Smith is included in the list of charlatans? As a former Chairman, you’d think so, wouldn’t you?

Two wrongs and a right

SPFL season 2016/17 will also see the reintroduction of a winter break – for the Ladbrokes Premiership only – with the 12 top-flight clubs enjoying a three-week break from league games, equating to two full weekends without SPFL matches, in January 2017.

A winter break next season.

Resolution 12 & The Broken Bond
The Celtic Board have a huge shareholder majority behind them regarding any actions they take, or don't take. The Board can argue convincingly that any financial loss suffered by Celtic over the Res12 issue, is more than compensated for by the continued existence of a football environment in which the PLC makes pots of money.

That football environment is predicated upon the continuation of the "Old Firm" at any price. Part of that price (in the Board's view) is allowing the deep corruption at the heart of the SFA to continue unreformed. 

I am not an advocate for any of this, far from it. I walked away years ago, over Ogilvie's enthronement for a second term as SFA President, unopposed by Celtic. That episode, forgotten no doubt by most on here, was the writing on the wall for me.

Everything that has happened since  has confirmed me in my view that the Celtic Board have no intention whatsoever of rocking the boat. I can understand why. But it sticks in my craw, and always will. 

Honesty has no price, in my world. To say that Celtic were totally unaware of the contents of the 5 Way Agreement? Sorry chaps on the Board, but I'm not buying that one.

These days I watch St Roch's when I can. That's football for me now. A breath of clean air.




Is Regan a DIDDY?
This is worth a read on the Morelos transfer saga- apologies if already posted.

I see that Sir Walter is being touted for the Scotland manager vacancy. I can fully understand why the deadly duo of Jack and Jackson are pushing this so hard.
TRFC are (as always) in some financial difficulty, despite having a squad containing galacticos in the £8m bracket. They need to get the paper value of that squad even higher, to encourage the Real Rangers Men to come forward with donations (sorry, loans). Their children’s inheritance will seem so much safer if the club has some valuable tradeable assets on its books.
This is where Walter comes in. A few international caps can do wonders for the value of even the most pitiful dumpling. Just watch, as caps are doled out to every player in the TRFC squad who has a Scottish qualification. Look on in wonder as TRFC squad value is doubled or trebled in a matter of months.
That’s the plan, folks. Desperate men, desperate measures, and all that. Shame about the better players edged out of the Scotland reckoning, an even bigger shame for the Tartan Army, who will see any prospects of Euro/World Cup qualification go up in smoke.
By the way, I agree entirely with Homunculus regarding JJ’s latest. Whether true or not, it is a disgraceful piece.

I may be wrong but I understand the loans to be viewed as money taken from the company
I may be wrong but I understand the loans to be viewed as money taken from the company –HMRC Guide 1. OverviewA director’s loan is when you (or other close family members) get money from your company that isn’t:a salary, dividend or expense repaymentmoney you’ve previously paid into or loaned the company– please advise?
That HMRC advice relates to the common situation where directors borrow money from their company. Here RIFC (or TRFC?) has borrowed money from its directors.
