The kind of Armageddon that buys you a meal, takes you to a show & onto a nightclub

738

As far as Armageddons go, this one will surely be known as the Amiable Nursemaid of all Armageddons.  The kind that not so much wipes everyone out, but buys them a meal, then takes them to a show and onto a nightclub.

Sky has renewed their deal to cover the Scottish Premier League after Our Man sorted them out yesterday.  They will show a handful of Scottish Football League games as part of the deal, a nice quid-pro-quo for SPL clubs for their annual contribution to the lower leagues.

Delicious irony: those SFL rights are worth more to each SPL club than they are to any SFL club.

Chief harbinger of doom, Neil Doncaster, will, on the one hand, be relieved that there is still income to pay his wages.  On the other hand, he must surely be embarrassed at the spectacularly in accurate scenario he portrayed to SFL clubs, and to several people in the media.  Did he embark on a flamboyant bluff or did he simply not know what he was talking about?

Remember, why we are here in the first place… Our good causes this year are The Haven Centre in Blantyre, Oscar Knox Neuroblastoma Appeal, Martin Chambers Ecuador Trust and Aberdour Primary School Parents’ Association.

We have already distributed over £2000 thanks to the sale of a Joseph Gormley painting back in April. We have two further fantastic paintings by Joseph; one of Scott Brown and one of Henrik Larsson. We also have a wonderful signed Neil Lennon print by the artist Gary Brandham.

The items are being raffled on ebay right now for the price of a £1 ticket. Winners will be drawn at the CQN Open on Friday night. There will be further raffles and auctions on Friday night with some excellent golfing and other sporting activities been donated by the Celtic family. Perhaps the pick is a limited edition canvas print of John Thomson, donated by the John Thomson Memorial Committee. There are only 22 of these in the entire world, representing the 22 years of John’s life.

This is a unique opportunity to win three great pieces of Celtic memorabilia, items which would normally be pushed out of the reach of most people at auction. Tickets cost £1, buy as many as you like, but participate. This is what your club is all about!

    Absolutely

     

     

    I wonder if Ian Black and Goian think they’ll be in the SPL next season now?

     

     

     

    HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

    The Orcs are also having great difficulty with the concept of incorporation.

     

     

    The Concise Oxford Dictionary:

     

    “incorporate – Unite (in one body; combine (ingredients) into one substance; constitute as a legal corporation.”

     

     

    Somewhat inconveniently puts paid to the recently developed concept of club and company being separate entities. The fact that the moribund club has the words “Rangers Football Club Ltd.” above its gates really ought to have been a clue.

    Maybe you were just lonely in the mid 70′s and found two/one guy with similarly bad tastes in music to yours ?

    I admit to the awfy music taste …

     

     

    Your antenna is wonky however, I suspect your mind is made up. Anytime you want to meet for a sensible chat over a beer let me know. I drove home to Glasgow this morning to catch up on some business.

     

     

    If you are around City tomorrow lunchtime or Thursday or Friday/Sat happy to clarify.

     

     

    I don’t expect you to apologise but at least hear the story

     

     

    Like I said I have no knowledge of RF ..please be clear about that.

    I don’t get how Newco can afford to sign anyone? Who is bankrolling them? I also don’t get how liquidation rules would permit the close associations to the oldco in terms of names, assets etc. Where are the creditors in all of this?

    I just cant dismiss a lifetime of writing as a propagandist like you can.

     

     

    I am difficult to reach as I do not live in the UK

     

     

    Why can you not share this piece of information that will instantly change my opinion of Ewing Greaeme entire body of work with the tens of thousands that read CQN and that E has defecated upon daily since he got such a job ?

     

     

    If it involves you and sex I do not want to hear anyway and it is probably not appropriate for a CQN airing

     

     

    If you think that it is ok because it is his job then I will not tolerate such outright offensive hun thinking. Certainly would not waste a nano second of my time to hear adolescent tosh like that.

     

     

    believe me if you would like to prevent E from being perceived for the rest of his life from 90% of Scottish football supporters as a journalistic Murray Rangers gimp …. you really got to try a lot harder.

     

     

    Which is only fair no ?

  8. Neil Doncaster is a solicitor, albeit one with an M.B.A

     

     

    In MY experience, lawyers are very comfortable differentiating between ‘Commercial’ terms (i.e. something with numbers in it) and ‘Legal’ terms (i.e. words and stuff) in any contractual drafting. They will quite often have little to do with financial matters. Perhaps our Neil is uncomfortable with the numbers

    Rangers new owner Charles Green faces company name problems

     

     

    By Martin Conaghan HAS Chris been fired ???

     

    BBC Scotland

     

    BBC Scotland has learned that Charles Green’s Sevco 5088 company is not currently permitted to inherit the name ‘The Rangers Football Club’.

     

    Any attempt to adopt the name ‘The Rangers Football Club’ would require the approval of the liquidators, BDO.

     

    Companies House has said that a name change application has not been made by Sevco 5088, and may not be possible.

     

    The consortium claims the full company name has already been transferred over by the administrators Duff & Phelps.

     

    ‘The Rangers Football Club P.L.C.’, which has the registered company number SC004276, has not yet been dissolved, but will inevitably be liquidated due to unpaid debts.

     

    BBC Scotland can confirm that the company’s liquidators, BDO, have not yet taken control of the company’s affairs, and may not do so for some time.

     

    Continue reading the main story

     

     

    Sevco 5088 would not be able to apply to change its name to The Rangers Football Club Ltd. until either the original company is fully dissolved, a process which can take about a year to complete, or the receivers give the go-ahead for the name change to take place

     

     

    Companies House spokesperson

     

    Green’s consortium confirmed to BBC Scotland that a purchase of the assets and intellectual property of The Rangers Football Club P.L.C. has been concluded with the administrators Duff & Phelps, which includes the company name.

     

    A Rangers spokesman told BBC Scotland: “The administrators have already given their approval for the name change and the process will be completed shortly.

     

    “The company name was part of the assets of the company which was sold to Charles Green’s consortium.”

     

    The spokesman also said any regulatory problems related to changing Sevco 5088’s name to The Rangers Football Club Ltd are not currently an issue because liquidation of the old company has not yet commenced.

     

    However, a Companies House spokesperson told BBC Scotland: “Sevco 5088 would not be able to apply to change its name to ‘The Rangers Football Club Ltd’ until either the original company is fully dissolved, a process which can take about a year to complete, or the receivers give the go-ahead for the name change to take place.

     

    “From a regulations standpoint, once the receivers or the liquidators/administrators for the current PLC agree to a name change, Sevco 5088 could then apply to change its name to ‘The Rangers Football Club Ltd’.

     

    “If they apply without following this procedure, systems are in place to flag up names which are too similar.”

     

    Article 10.7 of the Scottish FA’s Articles of Association states that the name of a club cannot be changed without SFA board approval, while Article 74.2 states that a club’s name cannot be changed to anything linked with sponsorship.

     

    The Scottish Premier League has no specific regulations regarding the naming of clubs or their parent companies.

     

    Continue reading the main story

     

     

    The administrators have already given their approval for the name change and the process will be completed shortly. The company name was part of the assets of the company which was sold to Charles Green’s consortium

     

     

    Rangers newco spokesman

     

    Green’s newco continues to trade under the name Sevco 5088, which has the company number 08011390, meaning it was registered in England. The sole director listed on the Companies House website is Charles Alexander Green, and while the company may trade under any name it chooses, its legal name cannot be the same or similar to another company in the register.

     

    The ‘Sevco’ prefix is a generic company name, often used by organisations which register companies on someone else’s behalf. Sevco names can be registered in bulk through Companies House and renamed at a later date as long as strict naming criteria are met.

     

    Companies House is a government agency run by the department of business and enterprise and deals with the registration and incorporation of UK businesses. All documentation relating to limited companies, including information such as company names, directors, accounts and share allocations, must be processed through the agency.

     

    The proposed name for the new Rangers company is ‘The Rangers Football Club Ltd’. All UK companies limited by liability via shares or guarantee must end with ‘Limited’ or ‘Ltd.’ – only public companies traded on the stock exchange can end in PLC or P.L.C.

     

    Shares in Rangers Football Club were suspended from the Plus Stock Exchange on 9 January.

     

    Other companies currently registered at Companies House with similar names include: Rangers Limited, Rangers.co.uk Limited, The Rangers FC Group Limited, Rangers Football Club of Glasgow Ltd, Rangers GB Limited and Rangers (2012) Ltd.

  14. Paul67 I was wondering after reading your leader and ‘our man’ sorting the SKY deal out, do you know if we are still looking to leave Scottish Football and if so are we in discussion with another league at present?

     

     

    On another note I’m hoping to catch up with you and finally have a chat in Dumbarton at the end of the month. Thank you as well for giving Jonathan88 an opportunity re CQN Mag

     

     

    Well done to @plyons45, @swiftymac76 & @wee_kezza for all their hard work for Hoops4Hiati

    Get someone to explain that to you and the meaning of the word convenient and how both of them cannot be married into a solution that would seem suitable to your ever more visible tiny mind … unless of course you can get me Murrays private jet ? Not rhetorical btw

     

     

    I strongly suggest you do not use one of your gimp friends in explaining this to you and as you know I dont baby feed anyone

     

     

    I do think that you should be capable of describing what is so fabulous about E without it compromising any of you unless you are both romantically linked.

     

     

    I also suggest that your phoney outrage is a rouse to allow you to back out of this hole that you have dug yourself into as I predicted earlier.
