A week for leaks

1020

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.

    “it’s the most depressing statement he’d ever read”

     

     

    If OG’s right he might rue saying that.

    Wednesday may be interesting; it will also be sad, as it’s the 15th anniversary of the death of the greatest Celt since the war.

  9. O.G as you said if people don’t want to read your post’s they can scroll on by.

     

    Me I look out for your post’s and always enjoy what you have to say.

    Just go to Beale Street for the atmosphere. Wander about and take in the bars you fancy.

     

     

    There is a great restaurant specialising in ribs. Can’t remember the name. Ribs out of t

     

    this. World. Just ask around.

     

     

    The Civil Rights Museum is a must, and take a ride on the tram the circles the city centre.

     

     

    We stayed in the Holiday Inn which overlooks a big bend in The Mississipi. Fabulous.

     

     

    Graceland is a ‘once in a lifetime’ but never again.

  11. “Celtic are delighted to announce that the Club is to play Bundesliga side Borussia Mönchengladbach, in a pre-season friendly at Celtic Park on Saturday, July 27. This match will be included in the season book, as well as the first Champions League qualifier.”

     

     

    We’re getting our feet under the German table…

    TLWIO- Tommy Burns, 16.12.56 to 15.05.08

     

     

    There were better players, and better managers, but to me he completely encapsulated the spirit of the Club.

    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.

     

     

     

     

    Keep her out of Nieman Marcus or you will be in debt for the rest of your life..??

    agree entirely

     

     

    My point , suitably pedantically , was that 2008 is 5 years ago – not 15.

     

     

    Either that or I truly am losing my marbles. :-)

  15. iPaddy McCourt on

    Scott McDonald???

     

     

    The fat wee greetin’ face last seen waddling around a penalty area at the Riverside?

     

     

    That Scott McDonald?

     

     

    Surely a wind up?

  16. Season ticket price freeze. lol!

     

     

    £1M loss a month. lol!

     

     

    Nacho Novo, Kenny Miller & Kris Boyd. Double lol! with jelly on the top!

    Bundesliga side Borussia

     

    Mönchengladbach, in a pre-season

     

    friendly at Celtic Park on Saturday,

     

    July 27.

     

    And the club is pleased to announce

    new season and another assault on

     

    the UEFA Champions League.

     

    The team will also take in a pre-

    that this first European qualifier will

     

    also be included for supporters as

     

    part of the Celtic season ticket.

  18. My wholly unreliable contacts in London tell me to get some cash on Harry Redknapp to be the new Everton manager. Can’t see it myself but I’m told his odds came down from 80-1 to twenties. Usual disclaimer blah, blah…

    Rubicon

     

     

    No chance after the way they have operated under Moyes going down the flash Harry route would be lunacy.

  20. Dontbrattbakkinanger on

    TLWIO -yes, absolutely you’re right, apologies for sloppy arithmetic.

    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.

     

    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

     

    You are not suggesting Newco have threatened the SFA that they will blow the whistle on their joint collusion?

     

     

    Criminal.
