ECA, Interpol, another day at the office for Scottish football

1327

Pleased to see the Club recognised for CelticLive, the stadium WiFi and content imitative by the European Club Association.  Anything which builds our profile at the ECA is welcome.

Today’s Telegraph assures us Newco Rangers chief executive, Graham Wallace, is set to  leave the club with his plans to raise £4m at a pending share issue still in the balance.  The newspaper further asserts the club is a “toxic brand” and is trying to secure an emergency loan from Newcastle United owner, Mike Ashley.

The club, which informed the Court of Session on Friday that it had only £1.2m cash left, and last night informed the Telegraph it was losing £1m per month, requires vastly more money than the £4m they are struggling to raise in order to finish the season.

Some credit is due to the Daily Record for their splash with photo and leader, “Rangers director Sandy Easdale and a criminal wanted by Interpol tried to negotiate an Ibrox bailout yesterday”.  They are reporting two years after Paul McConville’s blog initially broke the news of said Interpol-interested character, Rafat Rizvi.

Rizvi, who can take refuge in the UK as we don’t have an extradition treaty with Indonesia, is allegedly wanted for corruption, money laundering and banking crime, denies the charges, which he has already been convicted of.  He should fit in quite well.

As we said at the weekend, irrespective of short-term events, the long-term fundamentals remain unchanged.  The only thing to be decided is which of the characters hovering around the carcase will get to pick on the bones.

All credit to Sir David Murray.

    A Yes vote will be no hinderance to Celtic and other Scottish clubs joining a new league structure – if and when regionalisation is sanctioned the land border with England will still be there as far as I know;)

  4. PMQ’s has turned into a Scotland love in by Harriet and Hague,is anyone going to actually ask a question?

  5. Kilbowie Kelt will vote YES on

    They have tried to FLATTER us.

     

     

    They have tried to CAJOLE us.

     

     

    They have tried to BRIBE us.

     

     

    They have tried to THREATEN us.

     

     

    Finally, they are trying to FRIGHTEN us.

     

     

    They seem not to realise that has been SCOTS who have dominated their military, their politics, their commerce, their engineering,.. indeed every facet of their greedy Empire for over 300 years.

     

    That last tactic is the one which will finally open the flood gates.

    Good to see Philvis reclaiming his podium.

    I think you’ll find that the so called threat is being espoused by the no coalition and people like Ernie.

     

     

    There is no such threat.

  7. Apologies for carrying over.

     

     

     

    “once in a lifetime” “once in a generation”

     

     

     

    I agree Ernie. These two statements do have a tinge of incoherence about them.

     

     

     

    The trouble is(for you), is that the man you attribute them to only said one of them.

     

     

     

    Or maybe you heard a caller on the geordie Galloway phone in pretend to be eck and say both.

    Do you need the name of a top hand surgeon to help with this seemingly permanent condition of yours?

    Welcome back ole philvis

     

     

    Kings, the ole better together ‘campaign’ must be in bad shape right enough…

  10. Tooting Tim Top Tip:

     

     

     

    Food stuck in the throat? About to resort to the heimlich manouevre?

     

     

    No need. Just listen to a recording of today’s PMQs.

    PM starts #indyref Edinburgh event at Scottish Widows. Closed to public. Down the road @AlexSalmond poses for selfies on street

  12. Better Together declaring NHS is safe, while today announcing that they’re being backed by Lord Leitch. Chairman of BUPA. Haha, this whole thing is an elaborate documentary by Armando Ianucci. Got to be.

  13. It really is breathtaking to think that two years in Sevco are STILL losing a figure even near £1m a month.

    I’m heading out so it’s a bit unfair to leave you with a question but…. Hey Ho…

     

     

    Be honest now!

     

     

    In regards to your response to any interest shown by Westminster based politicians, do you not have all sides of the argument covered by a closed-thinking response.

     

     

    If the WM politicians show an interest in the Scottish Independence referendum, they are:-

     

     

    Only trying to keep the oil to themselves

     

    Desperate to turn the tide of the Yes momentum

     

    Butting into our affairs

     

    Breaking the Purdah rules

     

    Convincing Nobody

     

    Displaying Squeaky Bum Syndrome

     

    Dodging PMQ Time

     

     

     

    And if they butt out or show little interest, they are:-

     

     

    Not bothered about us

     

    Taking us for granted

     

    Frightened their presence will be counter productive

     

    Hiding from a debate with Alex Salmond

     

    Hiding behind Jim Murphy & Alisdair Darling

     

    More concerned about PMQ Time than about the Referendum.

     

     

     

    There is, frankly, nothing they could do or say, because ears are shut, eyes are closed, and we have our responses ready to cover why, whatever way they jump, they are still dead wrong because they are not True Scotsmen, and we’ll be the judge of that racial and/or cultural purity, thank you very much.

     

     

    Got to go now. I will catch replies later.

  15. Wow thats it I’m changing my mind,if only I had realised just how wonderfully brilliant and fantastic the UK is I would never have contemplated a yes vote,everything is going to be brilliant.

    Its all too little too late and obviously the wips have been busy,vested interests can sharpen minds.Did you see this wonderful commitment to Scotland before the yes vote became a reality?

     

    Naw didnae think so.

  17. Kilbowie Kelt will vote YES

     

     

    12:05 on 10 September, 2014

     

     

    Sounds like you think the Scots are genetically superior to the English.

     

     

    Which is pretty much where the SNP started from.

     

     

    Mind you it wasn’t the English they wished to differentiate themselves from back then, it was the Irish.

  19. Hhmmm…..takes a day out after spending toooo long trying to get a straight reply/answer from Ernie and I see Ole triggerfinger has returned.

     

     

    Welcome back Philvis, you staying long?

     

     

    Bit coincidental timing though……have you got wee Davie coming for tea tonight?
