Bigger questions loom than reconstruction

1092

We now know that Craig Whyte met Neil Doncaster and Ralph Topping, directors of the SPL, in London in October 2011 and informed them of the likelihood that Rangers would go into liquidation.  Whyte’s plan, to start a Newco and have it parachuted into top flight football was only taken seriously as a result of these three having a head start on everyone else and doing some preparatory work.

Charles Green has no such plans.  If he loses Ibrox, becomes embroiled in IPO-related troubles or fails to bridge the gap between money-in and money-out, an unplanned liquidation could follow with a potentially protracted period where physical assets are moribund and playing assets and other staff are released.

The SPL and SFL would do well to consider ‘what next?’ when they hold separate meetings next week.  The century-old ways are gone, things will never be the same again.

I’m really pleased the aforementioned Charlie issued an apology for his offending comments, even if he did so under duress from the SFA.  This kind of rhetoric has taken control within football in some European countries.  Once the door is open it is hard to close it again.

    ‘David Murray and those guys went to the same schools and have the same posh accents and taste for finery.’

     

     

     

    Which schools did they go to?

     

     

    Masterton and Goodwin were at state schools, as was Murray after he left Fettes when his father went bust.

  3. well thanks the lot of ye :)

     

     

    for getting me so excited that rangers would implode today

     

     

    truly this site is fuelled by rumour, inneundo, half truths, half lies, outright lunacy, conspiracy theories and pure madness when it comes to the huns

     

     

    wouldnt have it any other way

    Given what is occuring over at Barad Dur, there will shortly be a face off between the Non-Execs and Green/Stockbridge.

     

     

    If the non-Execs prevail – green is given his jotters – there will be a chance for Sevco to reset their course and come through the storm.

     

     

    If Green prevails – meaning the non-Execs resign – my guess is that things could get quite messy rather quickly.

    Don’t be expecting goal line technology in Scottish football anytime soon – the word from the top is that it’s too expensive. #BBCSport

     

     

     

    they have other things to worry about right now

  7. Regarding UEFA and the huns historical results, they don’t print results of teams outwith the top league. If you check Dunfermline, it shows that their last result was on the same day as the huns. The difference being that Dunfermline were relegated from the top league.

    You can of course get a full refund – aye-right

  9. So it could come down to which friends Chuck has given the most shares to in a vote?.

     

    Or is there a vote by others before it gets to share holders?.

     

    No way do I see Green or Whyte leaving themselves being open to being VOTED out

    As luck would have it there’s a similar printing error in the rangers shares prospectus

     

    “The value of your shares may go up”

     

    Has now been deleted.

    TBB,

     

     

    Even if Green is voted out, isn’t the whole existence of Sevco/The Rangers threatened by the legality of the Whyte/Green transaction?
