Mr Green and his invidious meetings


Information leaked from Charles Green that he is due to meet Celtic chief executive, Peter Lawwell today.  I’ve no idea if it’s true (sooo many wrong steers from over there) but, if accurate, it puts our man in an invidious position.  Mr Green appears generous when reviewing the success of meetings.

At his infamous ‘Blood on their hands’ press conference, would-be-pope-of-Ibrox, Brian Kennedy, told us “HMRC will not agree to a CVA until the very last minute”.  Why would they?  We believe Green has offered £8.5m but he has spoken about having raised £20m.  If HMRC are negotiating at all (and I have my doubts) they will want as much of that £20m as possible, and I’m sure they will, as Mr Kennedy suggested, wait until the very last minute before agreeing to anything (they won’t, b.t.w.).

None of this matters to Mr Green, he can say HMRC told him they’ll scrub the debt if he paints the Blue Room pink and no one can contradict him.  He is likely to be looking for some comfort from Mr Lawwell but I am sure he will be told that Celtic are unable to support any measure to parachute a Newco into the SPL (after his CVA fails, which it will).  Mr Green, who is also trying to maintain the support of the backers needed to commit cash by Friday, will almost certainly emerge from the meeting uttering words like “constructive”, “helpful” or maybe even “very positive”.

He is wasting his time.  Words like “sobering”, “alarming” and “downright obstinate” might be closer to the truth.

    sorry for the delay, the answer is you , as the first shot fire in the air. you’re no longer a threat and the second best will try for the best shot, if he succeeds, game over. If he fails, the best shot is going to bust a cap in the ass of the guy who shot nim.

  13. FC SION, docked 36 points this season after dragging both Celtic and Uefa into a complex legal battle, made sure of staying in Switzerland’s top flight by winning a relegation play-off yesterday.




    The club lost the second leg 1-0 away to second division runners-up Aarau but held out comfortably for a 3-1 aggregate win.



    Sion would almost certainly have finished bottom of the table after the penalty but were saved when Neuchatel Xamax were kicked out of the league in January for a series of financial irregularities under Russian-born owner Bulat Chagaev. Neuchatel officially finished bottom of the 10-team standings, the only direct relegation spot, giving Sion ninth place and the chance of a play-off.



    There was still controversy as Aarau protested over the presence of Sion’s Serey Die, even though he was handed an eight-match ban two weeks ago for slapping a ball boy in the face.



    The Ivorian appealed the decision and, under the competition rules, was allowed to continue playing until the hearing takes place, which might not be until next season. After beating Celtic to seemingly reach the group phase, Sion were kicked out of the Europa League this season for fielding players they had signed while subject to a Fifa transfer ban.



    Neil Lennon’s side took their place, but the club’s volatile president Christian Constantin then took the case to a civil court, defying Fifa and Uefa statutes, and Switzerland was threatened with an international ban unless action was taken against Sion.

    Two questions should be asked.


    Who is John Martin?


    What are his credentials?
