Green: Scottish football effectively is Rangers and Celtic

910

Charles Green told TalkSport, “Scottish football effectively is Rangers and Celtic. I mean, there are many other clubs but everyone has to acknowledge that that’s a fact.”

No, no, no, no.  No.  This is not a fact, it is not even a credible opinion.  Instead it is deeply insulting to dozens of teams who conduct their business properly year after year. I have to ask, does he want this project to fail? He is effectively saying – Vote for this plan, you are irrelevant, we are all that matters and this suits our purposes.

It was this erroneous attitude which led to predictions of Armageddon this season.  Instead, the long-suffering clubs who have paid their bills, while others put money which should have gone to the tax man towards buying fooballers, are enjoying a rebirth.

Green added, “Scottish football needs Rangers back at the top and Rangers being a vital part of European football. That’s where we’re trying to get them.”

This is a great season for the SPL.  Financially responsible Hibs, who lost the Scottish Cup final to irresponsible Hearts, are top.  Celtic, with their manageable, low, debt, have just beaten Barcelona in the Champions League.  Aberdeen have their best team in years.  Attendances are up for most clubs.

Before adding, “The Old Firm is the world’s biggest derby.  That’s what world football wants, what broadcasters and sponsors wants, to see those games again.  God willing we’ll see that in the years ahead.”

“The Old Firm” is not the world’s biggest derby, it’s not even Glasgow’s biggest derby.  It doesn’t exist anymore.  As for it being “what world football wants”!  Oh dear.  World football has better things to concern itself with, and don’t bring God into it!

The authenticity of the “Rangers Football Club plc” slideshow presentation which appeared last night is not confirmed, but I hope it’s genuine. It is, literally, fantastic. Notions contained therein that provide for “colts” teams and league reconstruction which “could see Rangers progress faster through the domestic league structures” bring it into perfect alignment with the Scottish Football League plans, which earlier this week Charles Green revealed would be presented today.

I also loved the first point on the summary page, “Profitable business model using prudent assumptions”, despite no mention of future costs, or revenues, in the presentation. Nice that they have confirmed revaluations of property assets at £79m, a fraction of the value the assets were disposed for in the summer.

This will not end well.

The Andrea Kearney Fund have a signed Celtic jersey available for auction on eBay. The fund, in memory of Andrea, assists families of women who are diagnosed with cancer while pregnant. Since Andrea died, aged 41, four years ago, over 50 families have been helped.

You can keep an eye on the auction here.

  1. Good morning CQN

     

     

     

    Kilbowie Kelt and Wiipaddy Simeone’s cafe fond memories

     

    Of cider ice lollies they were the days

     

    Before catching the Parkhall bus up the road from OHR

     

     

    Keep the Faith

     

     

    Hail Hail

  2. Apparently the articles on PmcC website that are missing is a technicality.

     

    There is also nothing on the site about injunctions and it is still open for posts.

     

     

    On the tax front, whether it is corporation tax or any other tax there will always be businesses who want to pay £0 tax, its a way of life, if they are allowed.

     

    There is a club/company in Scotland who did it for years and some people think that for the benefit of the country they should be allowed to continue, and continue with the good bits of their history but not the bad!

  3. !!Bada Bing!!

     

     

    We are responsible for what we post.

     

     

    Personally I would love CG to take out an injunction agaist me, but unfortunatly I don’t have any info that would make him do so :<(

     

     

    Guys like Tommy say waht they want, it's the truth they can't handle.

  4. Re: Charles Green suing the internet.

     

     

    That would not at all be the work of a desperate man who has gambled everything on a dodgy share issue.

     

     

    In no way can Charles Green be described as an irrepressible fabulist, a thimblerigger, a corner boy, or a big-faced bumclown.

     

     

    Sheffield United fans will testify to Green’s business acumen, his honesty, and his benevolent intentions.

     

     

    Charles Green is a handsome and urbane man who makes Cary Grant look like an elderly Yorkshire chav.

    I would say so. If nothing else where am I going to get my daily fix for Celtic chat if the site is closed down for a time?

     

     

    We need to be mindful but when you don’t know what you can and can’t talk about it is a minefield.

     

     

    Perhaps this should be in the New Article.

  6. It is ALL bollox.

     

    All we ask for is a bit of honesty, some integrity, a semblance of dignity.

     

    Instead we get what we get and it just leaves a sour taste.

     

    Way too much of it. I’ve given up. Back to just sitting back….what will be, will be. Nothing I say ,do, or think will make a nano-particle’s worth of difference.

     

    They can all go hang. I just hope we do well in our endeavours, even with all the handicaps we start with.

     

    The rest is an interminable struggle against shysters, hucksters and conmen in every walk of life. A corrupt and rotten system, prey for the most mendacious.

     

    Sic transit gloria mundi, and all that pretentious ‘hey, look at me…I can quote more bollox in a dead language’ stuff.

     

    I despise all the ratbags, everywhere, who have brought us all to this sorry state of affairs.

     

    Despise them with a deep and sincere loathing. And somehow I have to trudge through day after day of all this.

     

    And it’s going to get a whole lot worse before it all just collapses in on itself.

     

    Meanwhile, back in Dodge, Chunkles just goes on and on and on until he finally gets to swan off with whatever it is he’s after, leaving a steaming pile of rot behind him for the rest of us to deal with.

  8. On Twitter, huns saying Sevco going after other site’s bloggers.

     

     

    I wondered when I first read it if the small print on the first page of the presentation might be some kind of honey trap for said bloggers. It says something like “it is forbidden that this presentation and contents be divulged other than to those who it is aimed at.”

  9. See what I mean? I read back, and there you go: Chunkles would like to shut us down, because that’s just the low cunning rat he is : the epitome of all that’s wrong with society today.

     

    He is to football, what sugar is to teeth.

  14. paulsatim is neil lennon, THE EXILED TIM

     

     

    I was actually going to say that.

     

     

    The note on the presentation is a bit stupid as everyone is a potential investor even if you are more likely to swim the Atlantic then invest. So who is it not aimed at?

  15. The bottom line is that the huns are being taken for a ride and the stupid

     

    c*nts want to stop the only people that are telling them the truth.

     

     

    stupid,stupid, stupid huns.

  16. So the huns are going to serve injunctions against sites that are ‘anti-them?!’

     

     

    Stupid, stupid, demented desperate zombies!

     

     

    It is us who should be serving injuctions against their rancid sites!

     

     

    Hunbelievable!

     

     

    HH!!

  17. Souness and Smith validating Green this week, although The Cardigan went to great lengths to distance himself from the day to day running of the club.

     

     

    It would be idle gossip to say that pressure was put on them to come out publicly and back Green after Sevco were passed on some interesting paperwork from Duff&Duffer…

  18. The note on the presentation is a bit stupid as everyone is a potential investor even if you are more likely to swim the Atlantic then invest. So who is it not aimed at?

     

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

     

    It wasn’t aimed people that don’t smell right, people that wear brown brogues, people that don’t wear an apron on occasion, you, need I go on!!

  19. So, in the interest of fair play (non-existent), justice (it is what you can afford), transparency (don’t make me laugh) and general whataboutery ( the way of things,aparently), why has no one shut down FF, or say, even for a nano-second, publically questioned Chunkles random financial utterances re. Bigotry Inc. every time he opens his yap?

     

    Btw, you get around things (and this is the cunning stunt type world we are forced to inhabit) by not using real names etc.,. but everyone knows who you’re referring to. Not actionable then.

     

    And this is what we are reduced to, in a world where ‘honesty’ is a devalued, scoffed at, word…naive at best.

  20. It would be idle gossip to say that pressure was put on them to come out publicly and back Green after Sevco were passed on some interesting paperwork from Duff&Duffer…

     

    —————————————-

     

    D &D would not have to pass anything to Green, Green ran the show of RFC(IA) for quite some time before purchasing the assets, he would be well aware of everything.

  21. Once Green starts chasing after bloggers then you know they are in a **** storm.

    Our 6:2 and 5:1 wins against the Darkness( and a few others at Celtic Park ) had some of the following tunes as the players left the pitch

     

    U2 ‘The Sweetest Thing’, U2 ‘Its a Beautiful Day’, ‘Perfect Day’ ( Various Artists not the Lou Reed version)

     

    I loved the humour of that one… ‘Oh Its such a perfect day , I’m glad I spent it with you’

     

     

    A work colleague ( who always managed to get tickets for the FoD end at CP) mentioned that he had to doff his cap to our DJ who always managed to exact the last bit of pain out of their defeats at Paradise.

     

    Of course most of them didn’t hear it as they were probably already dismantling our toilets.

    I would love to but I dont want on the Chuckles hit list. Put it down to coffee break gossip and we will see what develops. ;0)

  24. ” I may not like what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it.”

     

    Was that Zola, Voltaire…. who said that?

     

    Whatever…..there is another decent notion being ground to dust before us.

     

    Chunkles is a totalitarian dimwit…only what he wants to be said, can be said. Whatever he says is truth, is truth. And he’ll cravenly twist the law to achieve his petty aims.

     

    A cretin. A slackjawed dissembler. A predatory creep.

     

    Just wait ’til the zombies wake up and realise how badly he’s humped them.

     

    Will they march on Yorkshire to rip him, limb from limb?

     

    We can but hope.

    P.S. I wonder if Charlie’s alleged anti free speech actions would have anything to do with Bawsmans post yesterday – the one that reckoned the FTT findings would be avilable next Monday?
