Missing Organ Grinder


It took a late goal from Anthony Stokes to secure Celtic’s win at Tannadice in August.  That led to a five match unbeaten run for Dundee United, which ended two weeks ago at Pittodrie before Inverness knocked 10-man United out of the League Cup on Tuesday with a 120th minute goal.

Jackie McNamara has stabilised his team and they are likely to finish in the top three this season, but the defeat on Tuesday, which led to a storm of controversy over the behaviour of Nadir Ciftci, will be a major challenge ahead of United’s trip to Celtic Park.  The champions should win comfortably.

There was little glibness evident in The Herald’s sombre interview with Dave King, published this morning.  Despite apparently getting along famously with antagonists on either of Rangers International shareholding, he was unable to reach a deal, perhaps because he didn’t speak to the Organ Grinder behind the club playing in Rangers colours.

Indeed, neither King, nor anyone else trying to oust, or do a deal with, the current board, knows the ultimate beneficiary behind Blue Pitch Holdings et al.  Is it you?  It’s not me, but I suppose that’s what everyone is saying right now.

That question, is the only show in town.

King wrapped up his comments to The Herald by saying “Over the last two years we have all witnessed the destructive value when individuals, who should be putting the club first, advance personal agendas through the media in an attempt to influence the most important stakeholder in Rangers Football Club – the fans”.

Self-awareness is a rare thing.

Mr King is 100% correct on the destructive influence those who have divided his new favourite club have had.  Without the modestly self-named Blue Knights causing ultimately unproductive havoc, Charles Green’s consortium would surely not have over-paid and under-charged, leading to the situation King believes could lead to administration.  The question now for those on the outside is, do they have the votes, or are they just peeing on the Broxy Bear Burgers?

    can you post please.

  5. What about each morning with a cut off time of 11 a.m., we run a book on Podium chasers?



    It would be difficult, though, to prevent collusion.

  6. I loved Peter Lawwell’s response to the question of potential conflict of interest re the Lying King’s fit and proper test.


    My reading of it was that it was ambiguous enough to


    a) question Campbell Ogilvie’s obvious conflict and


    b) lay open the question, “what conflict of interest would the Chairman of Celtic have when discussing matters concerning a new third division club who could hardly be construed as a rival of Celtic?”




  7. I think King and Rangers deserve each other, couldn’t give a monkeys if he gets the gig.



    I AM however interested to know what way Campbell Ogilvie votes in the process to smooth the Lying Kings entry into Ibrox.

    Three match ban for an offence deemed punishable by the ref with a yellow card.



    Then Fabregas got involved. I do hope for a schadenfreude moment with that yin.
