Comment on Two wrongs and a right by tykebhoy.
Homunculus the short answer is Starbucks and Amazon have never got as far as court proceedings mainly because they have been exploiting legal loopholes. Remember also that Whyte was signatory to and Withey and Grier as advisors at the time were at least party to the Purchase Agreement a contractual document in which it was promised the WTC would be paid after the sale.
Two wrongs and a right
Another thought on O’Halloran given that the Record are criticizing the mighty TRFC losing out to a basket case like Leeds (paraphrasing by me but the basket case is the Record’s irony free description of Leeds).
I haven’t seen it but apparently O’Halloran caused the home defence a few problems at Celtic Park yesterday. I’ll leave aside the fact almost anybody could cause Ambrose defensive problems. Did he just ensure that TRFC will be gazumped again should St Johnstone blink.
The statement in the TRFC accounts was a little ambiguous but I took it as they need to make a modest profit in the January window to assist with the additional £2.5m that was identified as required to trade until season book sales kick in again. To my knowledge the only departures from Ibrox this window are a loan player going back to his club and one of the young squad players going out on loan. No incoming transfer money then. Did O’Halloran make himself more valuable than “the Penalty King” who along with perhaps Tavernier are the only TRFC players likely to garner a fee well into the 6 figure mark? If so he priced TRFC out of the market should St Johnstone decide to cash in which I don’t think financially they need to. I guess St Johnstone now have to make a decision as to whether yesterday’s performance was a “come and get me” and if they retain the player will he just sulk for the foreseeable future. If they think that they will need to offload to the highest bidder which I don’t think will be TRFC.

Re O’Hallloran. The Celtic purchase and loan to Hibs is a non-starter not because of any tug-of-war reported but because there is a limit of 2 players between Scottish clubs and Stokes has joined Henderson as Celtic loanees at Hibs.
However the tug-of-war is interesting. Rumour has it that O’Halloran and TRFC have “in principle” agreed terms. That’s an interesting one given that unless a player is in a position to sign a pre-contract agreement (last 6 months of current contract) then an interested club must first agree a fee with what would be the selling club before even talking to the player and/or his agents. You will note that David “Bumble” Lloyd has already blasted TRFC/RIFC over lack of etiquette on the pre-contract signings of two players from his Accrington Stanley but this goes well beyond etiquette if the O’Halloran rumour has any truth in it.
which in the opinion of the Board is most suitable for the occasion.
Is that a rewording of the SPFL and SFA favourite “get out” of discretion. If NDP is sold out, with additional demand,would that prove the discretion to be flawed?

On the companies house share allotment document. Although it doesn’t state “working days” shirley any processing is manual and therefore the 5 days exclude today, yesterday and possibly Friday? That would also rule out tomorrow and Tuesday from the count.
On the JP Jenkins page re RIFC. I am pretty certain that the 50,000 trade is earlier than October and is the most recent. Regardless I don’t think the recent trades changed in October and definitely haven’t in November and December. It should be noted though that JP Jenkins will only likely report trades done through them where buyer and seller are originally unaware of each other. Private purchases/trades can happen without going through JP Jenkins if the purchaser knows independently the seller wants rid. The MASH/Mike Ashley sale to Barry Scott/Club 2012 did not appear on there allegedly because the sale price was inflated as part of the deal to renegotiate the retail deal. Any purchase of shares by AJ from DCK or any other board member would similarly avoid the need of the middleman JP Jenkins.
Small Price to Pay?
The SFA “get out” is the claim they have no jurisdiction over the chair of a PLC that just happens to own a football club. I think the English FA can teach them a thing or two about that. Birmingham. Leeds and Blackburn being recent examples.

It looks like Nottingham Forest may start rethinkinking their interim appointment
FWIW My take on last night’s statement is rhat it was pulished by someone known to have had prior access to the website. As PMGB might say “Peace be upon him”. I can’t believe the CEO had any part in it and for that reason I suspect we may see a real resignation soon which may also be joined by 2 of the 3 bears. This has all the hallmarks of a “Glib” production with Gilligan and Murray minor riding shotgun. There may be some High Level obsfucation in attempted damage limitation but I think the damage is now well and truly done. Not even a RRM would give up current gainful employment to pick up the poisoned chalice.
Good Try Mr. McKenzie
I’m with Cluster One’s response on the Radar asking serious questions.
I think you are correct Zadok is only heard from the group stages.
I don’t think it is only Miller but Wallace himself who will be retired long before, if ever, an entity playing out of Ibrox will be anywhere near CL Group stages or even qualifiers.
