Don’t mention the (boardroom) war

1004

With financial projections which provide entertaining reading, Rangers International promoted director, Walter Smith, to the position of chairman.  Smith immediately proclaimed, “Unity among the directors is vital”, although he was not asked about the forthcoming EGM where fellow directors Malcolm Murray and Chris Morgan face dismissal, while a third director, Charles Green, suggested he was going to resign by today, but has not got around to filling out the form yet (does this guy have ‘form’ when it comes to filling Companies House forms?)…..

They don’t do unity very well.

The only show in town is season ticket sales; for all clubs.  Maybe Celtic should appoint Martin O’Neill to the board for a few weeks to allow the newspapers to provide some bluster for those who more convinced by headlines and sound-bites than strategy?  Perhaps not.  Let’s stick to plan.

Lisbon Lion in Ayrshire, send reinforcements!

Willie Wallace will be at Waterstons in Ayr from 1-3pm this afternoon, get along (with camera) if you can.

Tomorrow Willie will be at the Celtic Superstore from 12-2pm before going to the Celtic Shop, Clydebank, from 3.30-5.30pm.  Get out and meet the man.

Great to meet so many people at Waterstons, Stirling, last night. The store sold out of Willie’s autobiography. There was actually a queue of people waiting to enter the store at one point.

Just a few days left on the auction for the signed Messi strip, a magnificent piece of football memorabilia. Keep an eye on it here.

    I mentioned briefly yesterday the absurdity of appointing to chair the board of a listed company a man who possessed absolutely no credentials for the role whatsoever.

     

     

    The Chairman of the Board in a plc acts to serve the interests of the shareholders and ensure sound corporate governance, matters which are mutually inclusive. No sooner is he appointed than he comes out with this to exemplify the folly of the appointment:

     

     

    “Rangers, this club and our fans must always come first.”

     

     

    Wrong. Your Shareholders must always come first. That’s the law. That’s the job.

    He is putting the shareholders first, if he didn’t pander then the credit column would be pretty bare and that would be no good for the shareholders. It’s like having a sign behind a shop counter saying “the customer is always right”.

    Good to have you frequenting these shores again more frequently-and even handing out sushi tips!

     

     

    How is life at the mo-wish you all the best with the ventures you referred to earlier.

  8. Just read Leggo. Frightening that not so long ago he was given space to have a (slightly) watered down version in MSM. However, his analogies to WWII are not only reprehensible but extremely poorly constructed.

     

     

    As much as D Day involved a lot of scarifice the Nazis were already on retreat from the Russians and the linking of the Cardigan to Montgomerty is accurate only in error. While given a short term bosot to morale the battle in the desrt was no more than a skirmish that had no great affect on the war as a whole. Just like Wattys appointment.

    You look back and see Fergus catch Farry with the smoking gun and you realise he was the man.

    Walter:

     

    “When you leave a job at 63, everyone assumes that it’s because of your age”.

     

    “It doesn’t necessarily mean that I am going to retire.

     

    “If the right opportunity arose elsewhere then of course I would consider it.”

     

     

    I guess the right opportunity didn’t arise……

    Kosecki and Tonev are right footed left wingers. They are completely diiferent type of players. Kosecki is very similar to James Forest.

     

    I don’t want Kosecki to leave my Legia, don’t care if Tonev leaves Lech or not. Maybe even better if Tonev stays with Lech

    Monaco has been a football anomaly before. Monaco used EU legislation to get opp Collins at a bargain basement price although the club played in a non EU state. Now the French league appears to be saying – If you want the benefits of playing in France you’ve got to pay French taxes.

    Fergus was almost always right.

     

     

    Unfortunately,as he had no intention of staying longer than five years,he had a bit of latitude.

     

     

    He could,at the time,deal with the here and now. Our current administration have to think longer term.

     

     

    Not easy,to be honest,given what they are up against.

     

     

    But I would LOVE to see Fergus take on the current cabal ruining our game out of sheer self-interest and fear.

This morning I repeated the excercise except todays ball refused to go into the hole. Why are some balls obliging and others total barstewards.

    Dear SFA

     

     

    You are alleged to have harboured deep suspicions that Craig Whyte was “a shareholder in disguise” at Sevco. You were assured he was not and let the club set up by Sevco take part in Scotland’s professional football set-up.

     

     

    It turns out your suspicions were well founded and the assurances you received were false. Craig Whyte himself has gone to the trouble of preparing more than 300 pages of documented proof that your suspicions were correct, that he was involved. He has shown this documentation to a national broadcaster.

     

     

    So, what now?

     

     

    At what point does sticking your fingers in your ears and going ‘lah-lah-lah-lah’ cease to be a viable option?

     

     

    ………………………………………………….

     

     

    I have just borrowed your letter and emailed it to Stuart Regan.
