Aberdeen versus United was deemed too large for Tynecastle.  Can’t recall who was in the other semi 07

Joking apart, I would actually query why the Celtic County match has to be at Hampden.  Does that not give either club an advantage over the duo fighting it out at Tynecastle?  Is there not another stadium big enough for what one would assume would be the biggest semi final attendance? 

And further joking apart at least finally we have some common sense being shown – that two semis on the same pitch on consecutive days in Scotland in winter is asking for problems.

Apologies but trying to keep lid of understanding on several pots at the moment.  Phil hints that a senior administrator had boobed by being involved in the F & P discussion whilst conflicted.  JJ then elaborates by inferring that his wife had RIFC shares.  Is that correct?  I remembered that CO’s wife was involved, but was it not to do with owning RFC plc (oldco) shares when he joined hearts (or possibly when he left to join the SFA).  Tell me my mind is playing tricks and that he had the wherewithal to keep the hell away from RIFC shares.  Please!

Take that back – it was the St Johnston cup semi 13-14 that was at Ibrox, the new firm semi 14-15 was indeed at Hampden.  I was even there 20 

Point on same pitch two days still stands though!


Whose assets are they anyway?
Sorry, just to add to the above a quick check on Paul McConville tells me that 13th June was the creditors meeting at which the CVA was voted down.  14th June was the onward sale to “Sevco.” Interestingly, the popular media reported it as something along the lines of “the business and assets of the club…”now pass to the sevco consortium (Charles Green) or words to that effect.  The “official” (and suffice it to say Paul had a picture of Chemical Ali on a dusty roof next to the link) RFC statement said “the Club and assets now pass to the sevco consortium” and then in a side note highlighted Greens involvement with Sevco Scotland and not 5088 as previously reported.

Therein’s the difference as claimed, but no-one seems to be able to say what the difference was!

And just to add – how far ahead of all of us (and particularly me) was Paul in all of this?

All I’ve read on a number of blogs tonight is people blaming James Traynor or Chris Graham for that appalling statement from Sevco. I don’t believe it was either of them. The statement has a number of petty digs at McInnes very similar to the petty digs in previous statements aimed at Celtic, Dundee Utd and others. And we know who the author of those statements was. David Cunningham King.

Now anyone reading that who isn’t interested in the facts would read that as the reason given (by McInnes or Aberdeen) for McInnes refusing to join TRFC. No one, and certainly not Aberdeen or the man himself, has actually given his reason for not joining TRFC, and the only suggestion that the job might have been too big for him has come from a representative of TRFC, a source that clearly didn’t think it was too big for him until he turned it down.

Shame the compliance officer is clearly so busy eh!

You mean up sticks i.e. resign and move on the strength of a 7 figure Dave King IOU.

Concomitant ewe reds…

Ok, permit me just one from the Twitter sphere and meme land on this delightful evening.

”…Derek McInnes has shocked 99.9% (source Kriss Abacus Boyd) of Scottish Football and turned down a move to Ibrox.

Rangers have appealed the decision…”

as you were.

Just in case you missed it Auldheid.  Kenny Macintyre on Sportsound just now (defending the media’s role in the McInnes saga),

”when a journalist uncovers some facts they report them.  That’s how it works.”

Thought it would be a good opener for when you do tiffin with Tom.  They really are beyond contempt.
