Mr Green and his invidious meetings

739

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.

    I think they do it to encourage women to participate and get involved in the charity

     

     

    I know a number of women who have done these runs because they enjoy the spirit in which they are run.

     

     

    There ate lots of runs every weekend for men to participate in for charity.

     

    It is also a great way of highlighting issues such a breast cancer.

     

    One in ten women get breast cancer.

    “Very basic CVA production for idiots.”

     

     

    “I am going to put £Xm into the CVA pot.”

     

     

    “Mr Duff & Phelps need £Xm to pay their fee’s.”

     

     

    “This means we are going to give all you creditors £Xm to split between you.”

     

     

    “The value of X is the problem Mr Green is having. A bit hard to convince people of a ROI in Scottish football.”

     

     

    The value X is indeed the problem…

     

     

    They put £Xm into the CVA pot. D&P need £Xm to pay their fees.

     

     

    X – X = 0

     

     

    This means there is £0 left to split between the creditors.

  6. Mr Green : “Hello Peter…I’d like to involve you in a dubious set-up and then misqoute you to the yellow press.”

     

    Mr Lawell : “GIRFUY & GTF!

     

    Door slams in Green’s face. Done deal.

     

    If only I was P.L.

     

    But I’m not.

     

    But it’s what I expect from him.

    i have already apologised for using that terrible word “prick”

     

     

    what was my 2nd one deleted for?

     

     

    you seem to be in the know, so i will ask you instead of asking the guy that runs the site

  17. James

     

    I was going to respond to you last night when you had read Michael Grant’s article in the Herald. However, I thought better of it, and today they are piling on to you. I will try to be more gentle and extend my apologies if the benefit of age and 60 years of supporting Celtic falls on deaf ears.

     

    Your passion for Celtic is obvious.

     

    What you lack is LOVE.

     

    Love is unconditional.

     

    Love does not expect a return.

     

    Love does not impose a certain acceptable, for you, behaviour.

     

     

    Instead of exerting your gifted Clydeside inspired oratory on beating up the object of your passion, look for ways that you can accept the club warts and all, faults and failures.

     

     

    Good health Kojo

    I think.you.will find that the Race for Life is only one of many ways that they raise money.

     

     

    Have a look at their website.

     

     

    ………….

     

     

    But their radio advert states they need everyone to join in as every penny counts. So excluding half the population is just down right dumb!

  20. SFA Articles of Association.

     

     

    “35. Club Licensing

     

     

    ”Clubs in full or associate membership of the Association or in membership of an Affiliated Association or an Affiliated National Association, as the case may be, shall comply with the requirements of the Club Licensing Procedures.”

     

     

    Shall comply. Not much dubiety there, is there?

     

     

    SFA Club Licensing, Part 1, Section 1: Introduction and Scope

     

     

    “1.1 National Club Licensing (Part 2) applies to SFA Member clubs and UEFA Club Licensing (Parts 3 and 4) applies to Scottish Premier League (SPL) clubs.”

     

     

    So SPL clubs are covered.

    ————

     

     

    The point of the extension seems to be to allow the Huns to find an accountant who is trying to get rid of his practising certificate and sees signing their accounts off as the way to do it.

     

     

    All seems rather pointless as do the SPL rules when you read this:

     

     

    ‘The SPL board has the power, contained within rule A2.7, to relax the criteria when it deems it applicable, stating: “The board may in its absolute discretion waive, relax or grant a period of grace in respect of any club’s or candidate club’s requirement to comply with any part of the membership criteria and/or rules A2.6 and H6.1.’

     

     

    Why bother having rules?

    Paul67,

     

    My apologies if I have contributed by my caterwaulings to making the process of thems’ demise any more difficult or problematical. I trust our CEO, if he has to meet thon Greenman, will simply tell him that they have made their bed; they’ll have to lie in it.

    “Till There Was You” is a song written by Meredith Willson for his 1957 musical play The Music Man, and which also appeared in the 1962 movie version. The song is sung by librarian Marian Paroo (Barbara Cook on Broadway, Shirley Jones in the film) to Professor Harold Hill (portrayed by Robert Preston) toward the end of Act Two.

    You may or may not be a male appendage but you are arrogant, disrepectful, manipulative and joyless!

     

     

    Because you are soooo intelligent, you knew that post would create many negative reactions justifying you thundering back full of vitriolic passion which, in turn, would create more hostility to your views.

     

     

    Result: anger, discord and lots of attention for the mighty intellect!

     

     

    Meanwhile, you hide under the cloak of being a Celtic supporter!

     

     

    Having fun, now?
