Quantcast

Ashley could fulfil Tarantino vision

948

Did Dave King honestly say there would be a “forensic investigation” before newco, under his control, would repay Mike Ashley’s £10m loan?  This, before the second tranche of the loan, which the club will need to meet payroll, is paid, and while Ashley could acquire an array of property and IP assets by simply not transferring the money when expected.

Unnecessarily provoking the source of short-term finance your club is dependent on is a bizarre tactic.

If it is indeed “the end” for the current newco board, as King promises, said board have a matter of weeks to secure whatever assets they can for those who have previously invested in the club and provided loans.

The crux of King’s comments are reported as:

“Would we pay [Ashley] immediately, I don’t think so no. We would complete a forensic investigation.

“If David Somers’ indication is correct that there has been some malfeasance then it is possible that the club would have a claim then I would attach the money and make a claim.

“If any individuals behaved improperly then it is important that they are held accountable.”

There’s a scene in Pulp Fiction when an unfortunate predator, “Z”, is informed that some African Americans are about to “Get medieval on his ass”.  We don’t get to see what this means but stay tuned, between now and the EGM, Mike Ashley might just provide a demonstration of what Tarantino had in mind.

Remember, Ashley is not at Ibrox because he fancies being the next David Murray.  He is not interested in the godforsaken world of having to run a football club in Glasgow, he’s happy to allow others to carry this burden.

He may well allow King to ‘win’ the EGM, but the spoils of victory will be very much on his terms.  Trying hard not to imagine Paul Murray in a leather mask now.

Today is World Cancer Day.  This disease has taken too many from the blog already, not to mention millions across the globe.  There is a lot of good news, though.  Progress is being made, but many in the developing world need access to simple preventative treatments, methodologies and information.

The preventative message still needs to get through to a great many in the developing world, before it’s too late.  Here’s a video outlining where the battle is at the moment:

    I know it’s a bit rich coming from me,but I thought Paul Murray’s face WAS made from leather.

     

     

    Certainly looks as though it’s been tanned once or twice.

    Was the james mcclean move a possibility at all ?

     

     

    Whats latest with commons… ?

     

     

    Hard call for board. Id like to see him stay but not sure about 2years.

     

     

    Seems unfair but i do feel its a tough call for the board.

    Hi Paul67,

     

     

    When are you going to change the Blog name to ‘TRQN – The Rangers Quick News’? Or perhaps ‘OFQN’ might resonate better with you?

     

     

    It seems to me that far too many of your articles are about that team from the Championship. I wouldn’t dare to make assumptions about the Celtic Support in general or indeed about CQN readership in general, so I will speak solely for myself here, and hope my thoughts resonate with more than a few CQN readers.

     

     

    I have to say that other than hoping that their Club/Company dies, never to be reborn, and sinks with everything that is bad about them, I am not in the least interested in reading about them. It is frankly boring and repetitive and nauseous… Thank God there are lots of good CQN’rs on here who just want to talk about the Celtic!

     

     

    Yours in Celtic,

     

     

    TB&F.

  14. Dave King outlines the future for Sevco, speaks of the interests of transparency and vows that nothing will be swept under the carpet. The task, he says, will be similar to that of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission in South Africa.

     

     

    Judge Southwood:

     

    “We saw King testify in chief and in cross-examination for four days and are unanimous in finding that he is a mendacious witness whose evidence should not be accepted on any issue unless it is supported by documents or other objective evidence. It was remarkable that King showed no sign of embarrassment or any emotion when he conceded that he had lied to the Commissioner in a number of his income tax returns. In our assessment he is a glib and shameless liar….As his evidence progressed it became clear that he has no respect for the truth and does not hesitate to lie”

     

     

    Can’t think of a better man to head up the Commission.

    I’m not ‘au courant’ with business practices in these days of Trump Golf Courses and Sir Alan Sugar Tv Series…

     

     

    But is it common practice to bit the hand that feeds you more than once? – especially when there’s no other food on the immediate horizon?

     

     

    Indeed Warren Buffet has it better…

     

     

    ‘Indeed, if you aren’t certain that you understand and can value your business far better than Mr. Market, you don’t belong in the game. As they say in poker, “If you’ve been in the game 30 minutes and you don’t know who the patsy is, you’re the patsy.”‘

    Do you remember Lorimer’s from the late 70s?

     

     

    Ushers by another name.

     

     

    Their lager looked like heavy,their heavy looked like Guinness,their light looked like your worst nightmare.

     

     

    All undrinkable.

  17. Proudbhoy, expect Commons to stay, no info on McLean.

     

     

    GlassTwoThirdsFull, aye, very good!

     

     

    When the game enters the Latin Quarter, they’re really in trouble.

     

     

    BOBBY MURDOCH’S, I hear you.

     

     

    Truth_Beauty, aye, I know. So few rules on what you can write about on this place. Good job, too.

    Kris’ game has never been about pace,it has always been-with us,at least-about playing regularly and when he does that he does the business for us.

     

     

    Look at the way he made the space for the goal on Sunday. That wasn’t pace,that was quality.

     

     

    Btw,you’ll gather I watched the highlights someone posted!

    To be fair, Truth_Beauty, wasn’t commenting on what could be written, more on how many times it has been written por cierto

  21. BMCUWP

     

     

    I do remember Lorimers. Was there not also a Robert Burns Ale at that time. Dreadful stuff as well I think

  22. What King says to the public via the media should be taken with a pinch of salt. His Private conversation with Mike Ashley will be quite different- I reckon it would have gone like this:

     

     

    Now I’m the king of the swingers, the jungle V.I.P

     

    I reached the top and had to stop

     

    And that’s what bothering me

     

    I want to be a man, man-cub, and stroll right into town

     

    And be just like those other men

     

    I’m tired of monkeying around

     

    Now don’t try to kid me, man-cub, I’ll make a deal with you

     

    What I desire is man’s red fire to make my dreams come true

     

    So give me the secret, man-cub, clue me what to do

     

    Give me the power of man’s red flower so I can be like you

     

     

    Ooh-bi-doo, I wan’na be like you

     

    I want to walk like you, talk like you, too

     

    You see it’s true, an ape like me

     

    Can learn to be like you, too

     

     

    Now don’t try to kid me, man-cub, I made a deal with you

     

    What I desire is man’s red fire to make my dream’s come true

     

    So give me the secret, man-cub, clue me what to do

     

    Give me the power of man’s red flower so I can be like you

     

     

    Ooh-bi-doo, I wan’na be like you

     

    I want to walk like you, talk like you, too

     

    You see it’s true, an ape like me

     

    Can learn to be like you, too

     

     

    Break it down boys, break it down boys, break it down

     

    Break it down boys, break it down boys, break it down

     

     

    Now I’m the king of the swingers, the jungle V.I.P.

     

    I reached the top and had to stop

     

    And that’s what bothering me

     

    I want to be a man, man-cub, and stroll right into town

     

    And be just like those other men

     

    I’m tired of monkeying around

    You see it’s true, an ape like me

     

    Can learn to be like you, too

     

     

    Can learn to be someone like me

    Hi Paul67.

     

     

    Thanks for the reply, and the gentle reminder :-) that even slightly(?) provocative contributions like mine at 12:55 are always welcome on the Blog. :-)
