Quantcast

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.

    Victor, I hope will stay another season. He is just a kid really.

     

     

    Efe will become ever more important to Celtic, IMO, we huv a real brammer there.

     

     

    I know you like to sell high, you may be right.

     

     

    I think Efe was brought in with Victor in mind and I hope that Mariga signs up soon.

  6. Confirmed news from Bulgaria and Russia.

     

    Aston Villa want Ivelin Popov, Bulgarian International who plays now for Kuban Krasnodar. Ivelin Popov ready to move to Birmingham.

     

    It’s not clear if Popov is first option before Tonev, or Villa want both players.

     

    Popov is attacking midfielder.

     

    Bulgarian media say that Stiliyan Petrov stands behind both candidates for play at Villa.

  8. The world of finance which I inhabit is infuriating. Not content with being fairly soulless compared to other ways of paying your bills, it seems to consistently fail to learn from its mistakes. The Chairman of RBS was a career scientist (McKillop, albeit a very successful one). Given that I can barely understand a bank P&L or balance sheet (there’s a lot of funky terms on there compared to your bog standard company), I would be interested in how McKillop found that experience. Now we have an ex-FOOTBALL MANAGER becoming a Chair of a LISTED company and a career civil servant (Evans) joining the Board of HSBC. FFS. I would hope the fund managers holding shares in Rangers are raging.

     

     

    Any Bear lurkers, I am unavailable for a Board position at Sevco. Don’t even ask.

    There is no direct quotes from Stan in any media outlets in Bulgarski………..lazy journalism me thinks.

  11. Just paused in work to imbibe some liquids, and took a read at old Leggo’s blog.

     

     

    Jaw-gaping incoherent triumphalism over Watty’s shoe-in as token Tap Hun.

     

     

    Many bemused thoughts sprung to mind as I wandered brow-beaten through his slaughterhouse of the English wirtten word.

     

     

    Most of them in keeping with his grasp of prose; singular, repetitive, slang – ‘Whackjob’, ‘Lu-lu’, ‘Rocket’, ‘Whackjob’, ‘Imbecile’, ‘****wit’, ‘Whackjob’…

     

     

    Still, a read of the pish-stained old alky’s mind-babble does give you a yardstick on the average mentality of the Penny Dreadful.

     

     

    We should not be worried. Ever. It’s the blunt of wit leading the blundering.

    Paul, you’re wrong, all is well with Sevco, Leggo tells us today, I guess he wrote this while listening to the stirring strains of Rule Brittania while memories of the infamous Hugie Green, flag waving, jingoistic televised speech brough a tear to his eye:

    ————-

     

     

    Reading that linked article gave me a pain in the head ! No wonder Rangers and now The Rangers have been run so badly if that guy is the ‘Paul Brennan’ of their support.

     

    =========================

     

     

     

    There is a phrase in there – ‘Trust Walter’ – that sums up everything about ‘The Peepuls’ attitude.

     

     

    So long as they have some mythical legend to figurehead them, some dyed in the wool Rangers Man, it’ll all be OK.

     

     

    NEver mind that ‘Sir’ Walter of Cardiganville (MBE EBT) was the ne who spent the money that could have saved their very existence in 2008, never mind that he only ever beat Celtic to titles when he was outspending them, never mind that he ‘walked away’ when he knew it was all going belly up, left them with the poorest playing squad ever, never made any real inroads in to developing a decent youth system, turned a blind eye to the financial stupidity – no, encouraged the financial stupidity so he wouldn’t lose to Celtic and so on and so on… he’s never chaired anything, never ran a business, never ran a raffle…..

     

     

    Never mind because he’s ‘true blue’. It’ll be all ok now.

     

     

    Well, unless Walt has seen the error of his ways and orders Sevco to slash costs, move out of Ibrox until they have a chance of Euro football and sell Murray Park then it isn’t going to be OK.

     

     

    Leave them to it.

     

     

    Doomed I tell ye, they’re all doomed…….

    It would be funny if it weren’t so sad and pathetic.

     

     

    Mind you that could also be an apt description of one of our dual monikered posters on here who I find equally depressing.

  15. Right are we getting Doc to start a list for CQNers who are planning on heading down to Greenock Celtic Supporters Club on Thursday 13 June for the Q&A with Willie Wallace and Brogan Rogan Trevino and Hogan?

    If I’m not mistaken, sportline.bg is one of the best sources.

     

     

    Not sure about it being a good source Zbyszek, there’s a few sport orientated newspapers here that i read, and all that is being said is Tonev will decide this week.

     

     

    The opinion of the locals that follow Bulgarian footy here is he’s possibly heading to Werder Bremen.

     

     

    Make of that what you will -)))

    Hi Kojo

     

     

    Ive actually seen this guy playing when he was with CSKA, and ive got to agree with Zbyszek when i think he said he’s nothing special really.

     

     

    Could have got better moving to Lech, but not for me ………………sorry.
