No to Newco Day


Despite of the most intense lobbying and doomsday predicting from chief executive, Neil Doncaster, SPL clubs have “overwhelmingly” voted ‘No to Newco’, finally rejecting the bid by one of Charles Green’s Sevco companies to form a team and gain access to the SPL.

This is the conclusion of what only last month looked like an unlikely grass-roots campaign which left several reluctant clubs with little choice but to accept the wishes of their supporters.

Neil Doncaster’s position is compromised after his ‘there is little difference between a CVA and liquidation’ campaign, as he contorted to win support for new rules which would make it easier for him to meet revenue targets.

The right conclusion has been reached.  Well done to all.

  1. What a day! Never thought there was enough balls to go around to make this happen.



    What an opportunity there exists for Scottish football right now. I hope there’s a real leader out there to grab the opportunity for a fair system and make decisions for the benefit of all sides.



    I hope Celtic play their part in this rebuilding – their part is to help lead. They need IMO to do so in a very diplomatic but firm way. The other teams are still the opposition to be beaten but the relationships may just have changed.



    Cheats almost always get found out. Once the corpse stops spasming perhaps it’s followers will even reflect on what’s gone on – wont hold my breath though.



    Anyone know what happened to the 2 USofA guys from the ex-team? Not seen it reported if they’ve given Sevco the GTF?

    Climbing up on Solsbury Hill


    I could see the city light


    Wind was blowing, time stood still


    Eagle flew out of the night


    He was something to observe


    Came in close, I heard a voice


    Standing stretching every nerve


    Had to listen had no choice


    I did not believe the information


    I just had to trust imagination


    My heart going boom boom boom


    “Son,” he said “Grab your things,


    I’ve come to take you home.”


    [ Lyrics from: http://www.lyricsfreak.com/p/peter+gabriel/solsbury+hill_20107506.html ]


    To keep in silence I resigned


    My friends would think I was a nut


    Turning water into wine


    Open doors would soon be shut


    So I went from day to day


    Tho’ my life was in a rut


    “Till I thought of what I’d say


    Which connection I should cut


    I was feeling part of the scenery


    I walked right out of the machinery


    My heart going boom boom boom


    “Hey” he said “Grab your things


    I’ve come to take you home.”


    (Back home.)



    When illusion spin her net


    I’m never where I want to be


    And liberty she pirouette


    When I think that I am free


    Watched by empty silhouettes


    Who close their eyes but still can see


    No one taught them etiquette


    I will show another me


    Today I don’t need a replacement


    I’ll tell them what the smile on my face meant


    My heart going boom boom boom


    “Hey” I said “You can keep my things,


    They’ve come to take me home.”

    Gordon Smith on still talking about rangers & saying they´ll be the only team to win all the divisions ha ha ha.


    On a More sinister note he says there´s going to be a lot of animosity to other clubs from rangers supporters & they will also boycott all away games.



  5. It is a battle won Ghirls and Bhoys, we have will have a few skirmishes yet as ‘die toten Hunnen‘ and the axis forces of MSM / SFA regroup and put together another cunning plan to speichern sie die Hunnen. (Save the Hun)

  6. A couple of points



    1. How can Dundee be conflicted over what League the newco gets into in the SFL. They or Dunfermline will be getting promoted no matter how they vote!



    2. C’mon The Spartans!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Unorthodox No to Newco Day celebration.


    Off out with Michaelis, the local fisherman, sailing the Aegean line fishing for sea bream, snapper or possibly even tuna. No alcohol on board, too dangerous, but I will wel remember the day the stared to be gone for real.




    British airways came through with luggage so alls well in Super Sammi land.

    There will always be a Rangers in the top division in Scotland.



    Rangers are Scotland.



    The SFA The SPL The SFL are Rangers



    We are the people



    When you cast your eyes upon the skylines


    Of this once proud nation


    Can you sense the fear and the hatred


    Growing in the hearts of its population



    And our youth, oh youth, are being seduced


    by the greedy hands of politics and half truths



    The beaten generation, the beaten generation


    Reared on a diet of prejudice and mis-information


    The beaten generation, the beaten generation


    Open your eyes, open your imagination



    We’re being sedated by the gasoline fumes


    and hypnotised by the satellites


    Into believing what is good and what is right



    You may be worshipping the temples of mammon


    Or lost in the prisons of religion


    But can you still walk back to happiness


    When you’ve nowhere left to run?



    Andif they send in the special police


    To deliver us from liberty and keep us from peace



    Then won’t the words sit ill upon their tongues


    when they tell us justice is being done


    and that freedom lives in the barrels of a warm gun…..BANG BANG YOUR DEAD

  10. What Wiggy forgets is that whoever this Sevco mob are, the team formerly known as Ragers are deid.



    When their poisonous support sang “no-one likes and we don’t care” .. they were half right. .. No-one likes them but they sure are caring now.



    Let them rot in the hell they made for themselves.



    Have a lovely hun-free day all, back to lurking!

    ” Everywhere….”


    Hahahahahahahahahaha !!

  18. i just wonder how the vote would have went ,if it was the cardigan, mc Coll ,parks that had control of rangers , rather than charlie green

  19. thomthethim CQN (genuine) Badge Wearer on

    I take it that Green’s helicopter has been stood down until next week, when it will be on 24 hour stand-by to visit SFL chairmen.



    Surely after the SPL issue their invite to Club12, Doncoyote’s involvement in this scandal will be over.



    It will be Longmuir and then Regan’s baby then.

  20. Gordybhoy @ 14.44,


    On the contrary, if Killie’s chairman has made an about-turn under pressure from their fans that shoiuld be acknowledged & the club should not be boycotted. The biggest positive in the whole shambles has been the willingness of the fans of other clubs to stand up for the rules of the game, whether they like or loath Celtic. There’s no need to create new enemies or new enmity – we already have enough of both.
