A week for leaks


This seems to be a week for leaks.  I hear one club recently refunded two investors to the tune of £500k each.  Don’t worry, it wasn’t Celtic, and I hear the club involved are one of the most financially secure in Britain.  I also hear the national broadcaster rejected a former presenter’s request to return to the fold.

Still nothing from the SFA, who were responsible for issuing associate membership to Newco Rangers, on the leak from the club’s board meeting that the Association expressed alarm that earlier information had leaked from chairman, Malcolm Murray.  Mr Murray recently instigated an investigation into the relationship between Craig Whyte and Charles Green, the nature of which could invalidate Newco’s associate membership.

Far from being alarmed at leaks, the SFA should be keen to see full disclosure.  Reports suggesting otherwise are alarming.  I am sure the SFA president has already demanded openness and clarity…….  Relax, standards of corporate governance at the SFA are as high as ever.

I am also sure the leak from Newco was not a shot across the SFA’s bows, providing a glimpse into what looks like some murky conversations which people at the Association could have much to lose from being exposed.

    Would the ‘presenter’ be a certain Mr McCoist?



    And would the ‘fold’ be a return to setting the weekly Mastermind questions?

  3. I forgot to put a full stop at the end of my podium post….so here it is>>>>>>>>>>>>>.<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<

    “Relax, standards of corporate governance at the SFA are as high as ever.”



    Like the juxtaposition of “Relax” with the rest of the sentence!

  5. ‘and I hear the club involved are one of the most financially secure in Britain.’

    All this leak stuff is very interesting, but when are we going to hear of Celtic’s plans to get us out of this league? The club will fail to meet our expectations while part of this contemptible set up. Drive the agenda Celtic, take the lead, and make it happen.

    Ahhh thank you for that.



    The second part of the question still applies though :-)

  11. I was in a bookshop in Chicago when they were wrecking Manchester. My mate sent me a text just after 3.00 Chicago time telling me all was well, they had been pumped and the fans took the defeat with their customary good humour and grace (maybe not). Of course the joy at them being humped was short lived with what sadly happened on 15th May 2008.

  12. Big Swee walks on with Neil Lennon on

    Having just got back from a rare weekend down in Totness, I watched the match and have to agree that the assault on Lustig certainly merits a closer look as it could have seriously injured him. It seems very clear on the replay there is intent and indeed it was commented on as such.



    What I found more disturbing was the attitude of Andy Walker who is fast becoming the equivelant of Craig Burley IMHO. Spouting nonsense in regard to the assault and saying Lustig should expect it etc.



    Clown of the first order with statements like that.

  13. You should just rename the site “week o’ leaks” Paul. Or is that copyright?








    Ffs,don’t let RIEPERMAN know!



    He’s an exceptionally hospitable fella whose hospitality damn near killed me on Saturday.



    I recommend his company to one and all…..

  15. one million going back to investors , that leaves 24 million in the bank . Unfortunately for them thats pence.
