Newco’s potential investor


Just a short one while we await the Uefa meeting to breakup.  I see the press have caught up on the information I left on CQN on 11 March about the potential investor in Newco.  Then, I wrote, “If [The Sun) had even given us something like, ‘A fan, originally from Paisley, who made his money in the Far East’ I would have thought their information was possibly on a par with mine.”

A month ago, Newco were the only club in Scotland facing a financial crisis, today, almost all are, but Newco’s situation is acute.  No Paisley-born-boy-did-good is going to change that.  There’s lots more going on here than I can write about or that others will.  Good luck to Stuart Gibson, if he signs that P.G.

Oh, and their new PR man, goodness!

  3. I know it’s obviously his own money but if I was invested in a fund managed by Mr Gibson, I’d be seriously questioning his professional judgement right now.

  4. How come aw these potential investors take so much time to sign……?


    ……how come……… this “investment” seems to take soooooo long to get over the line……………….aw these mega-bucks, hunned-up benefaktors who jet in take so loooooong to land??????Then take aff…..ooot quick-style.

    Very good stuff Pablo.



    Mind boggling levels of mischief likely being discussed.



    Am coming round to thinking that Administration regs will be relaxed.



    Furthermore, I believe that this totally unscrupulous club will simply stop paying staff and creditors and blame it on Coronavirus.

  8. King is playing the Sevco Supporters,renewals are due ,nothing in the Cupboard,along comes a investor in Japan putting millions into the club,Honestly when are these supporters going to wake up to the people that are running there club,


    Happy St. Paddy’s Day to all.



    UEFA……kicking the can down the street? Into the summer……



    …….that would mean no incongruous asterix polluting the space beside our name in the history books.



    Happy days……hopefully.



    But just don’t trust UEFA after the Rapid Vienna fiasco of 1985….I was there.



    Just reading The Quiet Assassin article about this on CQN still makes my blood boil to this day.

  10. I haven’t read back so perhaps this has been mentioned already.


    35% of the Valencian team and staff have tested positive. Apparently all are asymptomatic.

  11. Oh, Paddy dear and did you hear


    The news that’s goin’ round?


    The shamrock is by law forbid


    To grow on Irish ground


    Saint Patrick’s Day no more we’ll keep


    His colours can’t be seen


    For they’re hanging men and women


    For the Wearin’ o’ the Green



    I met with Napper Tandy


    And he took me by the hand


    He said, “How’s dear old Ireland


    And how does she stand?”


    “She’s the most distressful country


    That you have ever seen


    For they’re hanging men and women


    For the Wearin’ o’ the Green”



    Then if the colour we must wear


    Is England’s cruel red


    Then sure it will remind us


    of the blood our martyrs shed


    You may take the shamrock from your hat


    And cast it on the sod


    But ’twill take root and flourish there


    Though underfoot ’tis trod



    My father loved his country


    And sleeps within its breast


    While I that would have died for her


    Must never so be blessed


    Those tears my mother shed for me


    How bitter they’ve had been


    If I had proved a traitor to


    The Wearin’ o’ the Green



    But f at last our colours


    Should be torn from Irelands heart


    Her sons with shame and sorrow


    From the dear old isle will part


    I’ve heard a whisper of a land


    That lies beyond the sea


    Where rich and poor stand equal


    In the light of Freedom’s day



    Oh Ireland must we leave you


    Driven by a tyrants hand


    And seek a Mother’s blessing


    From a strange and distant land


    Where the cruel cross of England


    Shall never more be seen


    And in that land we’ll live and die


    Still wearing Ireland’s green

    are Bingo Halls and social clubs having to close their doors in UK ?

  13. P.G. ? Parental guidance …that’s what the Sevco support needs …oh wait a minute …! 😱😜

  14. From the BBC website … I smell 💩



    Rangers chairman Dave King says he does not intend to sell his Ibrox shares but has confirmed plans for a share issue.



    King announced at the club’s AGM in November that he would step down from the helm after five years in charge.



    Reports on Tuesday said Far East real estate tycoon Stuart Gibson is set to lead a multi-million pound investment in the club.



    “I am not selling any shares,” King told the Press Association.



    “As I said at the AGM, we will raise new funds.



    “No existing shareholders are selling.”



    The South Africa-based businessman owns a 25.58% stake in Rangers held by his family firm, New Oasis Asset Limited.



    The Daily Record reported on Tuesday that Gibson is “on the verge of ploughing millions into Rangers and becoming the most influential figurehead in the Ibrox boardroom”.



    Rangers announced in November they would need £10m in investment before the end of the season after announcing an annual loss of £11.3m.

    The Association of British Insurance has put out a statement saying standard business interruption cover – which majority of firms purchase – does not include forced closure by authorities



    smiley hope our insurance was something better than “standard” thing




  16. Euro 2020 postponed until next year with the qualifiers to be re-arranged for June



    Assuming the plan is to squeeze all the national league matches in around this time as well

    I haven’t read back so perhaps this has been mentioned already.





    35% of the Valencian team and staff have tested positive. Apparently all are asymptomatic.







    I posted this link to the story earlier.





    The suggestion is they were infected when playing Atlanta in Italy last week.



    Well done UEFA.

  18. Hi Paul67,



    Yes, as soon as I read the piece on Stuart Gibson thought of your chap from Paisley.



    Interesting new PR man, then this story unfolds, only for DCK to state he’s not selling shares and he is going to be sticking to the November AGM plan of raising new funds.



    As you are suggesting that things are much worse than appears on the surface, it suggests there is a civil war at Ibrox.



    Big question then, who is David Grahram actually working for!?



    Hail Hail

  19. A Happy St Patrick’s Day to one and all. May he watch over all of us in this time of need.



    I am not any good at downloading and send on things to others, so sadly I cannot share with others the beautiful image of the Archbishop of Milan standing on the roof of the Duomo facing the Madonnina, Milan’s famous statue of the Blessed Virgin, and praying for all afflicted by the Corona virus. Among his beautiful words are these, ” In these times of apprehension, suggest kind words of encouragement to us. In the hours of solitude may we show our concern for those who are suffering. May our gentleness and our smile demonstrate our caring. Fill our decisions with wisdom. May no one be so anxious about self and indifferent to others. May no one feel excluded or abandoned.”
