The purpose of Kings last visit?

Wouldn’t  it be ironic if King had a cosy get together with the current President and Mr Regan to discuss the probability of a forthcoming administration just as Whyte did in October 2011.

I wonder if Campbell and Stewart still have sleepless nights about whether/when Craig plans to release the recordings …..

So here I am listening to national radio Sevco, sorry Scotland, hoping to get an update on events at the courthouse today. Nae chance, not a single mention.

A decent piece of  diversion from the novice Sevco PR dept with their 4.30pm statement. The real facts of the day get discussed in a courtroom and all our national broadcaster can discuss are the inflammatory words of a convicted South African criminal.

Re Tony at 8.00am

Aye Tony, that was the reason given in the MSM at the time right enough so it must be true21

Whose assets are they anyway?
Well as Friday’s go in this saga, yesterday was fairly quiet considering the pace that was set earlier in the week but I think next Friday will be a different affair altogether given Charlie and his highly paid teams appearance in court.

Anyway now that the cheatery of Rangers has, as we all know was the case, been confirmed, there’s always a constant nagging in my mind as to when it all really began. Let’s not forget Murray took over at Ibrox in 1986. Did Derek Ferguson not  recently mention on radio that Maurice Johnston received a rather sizeable amount paid directly into a Swiss bank account to convince him to sign for the old Rangers in 1989? If there’s any fact in this, I would suggest Murray was more or less at it from the outset. Why did these top English players like Butcher, Woods, Steven and Gascgoine really come north of the border? The golf and fishing? Souness was the manager of course and he got an EBT despite not working at the club when they were in use. You couldn’t make it up!

I also think of the comments of Hugh Adam in 2002. Surely he wasn’t referring only to the contracts of Flo, De Boer and Moore at that stage? 

The old Rangers won nine titles in a row from 1989  – 1997. I’d be astonished if all these weren’t tainted too. If what Derek Ferguson said live on the Beeb is factual, there’s two for starters!

It Is Better To Offer No Excuse Than A Bad One
Radio Scotland were asking for sporting highlights of the year tonight.

Hats off / chapeau to the practical joker who succeeded in getting this one read out – ‘Rangers scoring the winner at Partick Thistle in April, with the crowd going bezerk, and the team securing a return to Europe’

Added irony was thrown in by Kenny McIntyre who read it out without any irony!

This was immediately followed by another highlight which was Derek McInnes saying thanks but no thanks to Rangers.

The producers are clearly trying to lead McIntrye towards comedy to get some listeners back.

Who Is Conning Whom?
So we’ve now had about ten hours to digest the belter of a statement from Dave King & co. last night. Their arrogance clearly knows no bounds.

Anyway, if only wee Stevie in IT was a Dons fan – he might have chosen to edit the statement before publication. Something along the lines of;

‘We endorse that position because moving to a brand new club like The Rangers is a big step with concomitant (09) risk, driven by the unrealistic expectations of the senior management and the fans, and the non existent resources available to meet such expectation’

Okay, it’s maybe not nearly as amusing as the original statement, but it’s definitely 99.9% (©Kris Boyd) more accurate.

Time to Ditch the Geek Show
Who on earth, at the BBC, deemed it appropriate to commission a full interview with Graeme Souness? 

His relevance and his personal interest in todays game in Scotland is negligible.

The only thing Graeme Souness is interested in is Graeme Souness!

The only pertinent questions that could be asked of him are the circumstances of his EBT, and how David Murray conducted his cheating in Scottish football through the late 80’s and early 90’s (pre EBT’s) but somehow I think these are areas the BBC won’t venture towards!

Time to Ditch the Geek Show
A quiet weekend for Dons fans like myself but I’m sure we will all be hoping Motherwell cheer up a rather bleak Sunday in the north east today.

The highlight of my sporting weekend actually arrived early – Friday morning, driving to work to be precise. Super salary McCoist happened to be on Talksport radio with Alan Brazil and for some reason they started talking about car boot sales. Alan enquiries of Ally, ‘have you ever been to a car boot sale?’, to which Ally says no but then Brazil comes in with ‘I thought that would have been right up your street – all that tax free cash in the sky rocket!’

This was followed by a lovely moment of radio silence as the producer tried to get some impromptu adverts on.

From Mark Daly’s BBC documentary, there were 15 EBT recipients never identified. I wonder if Ally had his nose in the trough too?!

The Vice Closes
So having long since given up on the SFA ever doing the right thing or the ‘national’ broadcaster ever providing some fair and balanced coverage of the national game, at about 3.45pm yesterday, I put it on, for 5 mins,  purely to get the half time score at Murrayfield.

Was Chick Young on level 5 funded or tax payer funded commission to state ‘it’s armed forces day today at Ibrox’?! He must have said it about 5 times in his HT ‘analysis’ before I gave up on finding out the Dons score. 

And on this armed forces day nonsense,  who covers the costs of this? Tax payer, club or company? Surely a club/company that requires £4million by month end can’t be throwing money at this?

With regards to Stewart Milne, Bill1903, he has always been out of touch with his own supporters, but appears now to have taken it to an entirely new level.
