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.

    I was in Chicago a few years ago as well as part of a bus trip so didn’t have a great deal of time to fully explore it. You have however got the millionaire row, where all the posh shops are, you have State Street and there is a marvelous park with the big shiny polished bean and 2 massive statues that spit water out at periodic intervals. We also saw The Jersey Boys at the famous Chicago theatre. The only down side when we were there is that Thems were playing in a Uefa Cup final (how did that happen) and then the following day Tommy Burns passed away. Still a great place to visit though.

    What’s this about Stuart McCall winning manager of the year? Didn’t he lose a cup tie to some third division mob?




    That result went a long way to him getting manager of the year!

    Mick, just walk up and down the street like everyone else, loads of places with entertainment from blues, rock & roll to big bands, go into the ones that have music that you like, some are free some have a cover charge, Budweiser had a stage that was free, lots of bars on the street that slide open their windows and you don’t even have to go inside to get a beer, there is a lot of drinking on Beale Street on Fri/Sat nights. If you like music and beer you will like Beale Street. Good luck and enjoy.

    Not to judge the book by the cover, but Frazer Wright has got a face like Kilwinning on the 12th of July.



    Or possibly even uglier.



    Billy Urquhart must have been his mum’s milkman.

    Cheers again for the info. Staying at the Hilton at near Grant park so I think that’s close to the polished bean and the wife has the shopping earmarked as a must do.




  12. Who?



    Who is there to take the step


    To bring the hammer of justice crashing down


    With the weight of all this evidence


    Surely, someone could be found



    Who is there who will make a stand


    To bring a light into the dark


    Take the weight upon their shoulder


    Surely someone, will step up to the mark



    Who is there that is not corrupt


    To bring the whole thing to a close


    With the weight upon their conscience


    Surely, someone out there knows

    SPL Trophy in Ticket Office Tomorrow til Friday,you can have your photo with it as long as you provide the camera,looks FOC.

  14. i noticed OGR gettin a bit of stick in the last day or 2.



    solution is simple



    if all he is going to say is things like ‘wednesday should be an interesting day’ then he shouldnt bother



    if a story does break we will hear about it anyway without his hints.



    it keeps everyone happy, he avoids attention which he stated he would prefer not to have, and some cqners can get on with their daily lives without constantly hassling him for more info

    Thanks for the info. Won’t be there for the weekend mid week visit. Big on beer and music so looking forward to it. It’s the wife that has always wanted to go to Graceland so she is really up for it.

    They’d probably have an open top bus parade with representatives from the Armed Forces and claim it as some kind of world record if one did.
