Big Rangers Administration/Liquidation Thread - All chat here!


Recommended Posts

This bit caught my eye:

"I congratulate supporters for putting integrity and good governance of the game to the top of the agenda. The fans have done a good job, but it's now time for them to join us in 
addressing the other issues in Scottish football."

Delivered like a true politician. Oh... wait....

Groucho Marx saw this lot coming...

"the art of looking for trouble, finding it everywhere, diagnosing it incorrectly and applying the wrong remedies."

Yep lets not sugarcoat things here, it's clear that pretty much everyone seems to hate Rangers and is very much enjoying their death. I seriously doubt that a showing of humility ( how would that even work anyway, Ally McCoist crawling on hand and knee down Argyle Street while we all threw rotten tomatoes at him maybe?) would have made any difference.

And, if anyone seriously takes the view that showing some humility would have made a difference, I doubt that sporting integrity is their prime motive.

I love how throughout this whole episode all and sundry have fallen over themselves to tell us that we all need Rangers/Servco.............

Ask yourself what the common denominator is ? Yes....that's right ! they all earn a living off Scottish football and their job would be so much harder if they actually had to research who St Mirren's No 4 was or exactly what the score was the last time Motherwell faced Hibs at Easter Road !

Hopefully two things will come out of this

1. Servco FC in Division 3 at best.

2. There is a Stalin style purge throughout our sports media.

Showing humility shouldn't make a difference, as the road should have been made clear from day 1 which steps Green would have to take to field a team next season. The current clusterfuck is all the doing of the governing bodies. Of course Green is going to try to get in at the highest possible level, he only cares about the £££.

Yes, and I'm very pleased with that. It was however, nothing to do with Sevco's decision, but the SPL and their choice of TV money. I'm just glad we're getting a little justice out of our deal, and the same with Dundee United. It's teams like Rapid Vienna that were £1 million that I feel sorry for.

You can split the camps into two:

1. People who put money into Scottish football - the club chairmen/owners and us, the fans. I do not include the commercail sponsors because they are only funding something that they are getting a return from, their is nothing altruistic in their actions and they have no loyalty.

2. People who take money out of Scottish football - the 'pundits', players, managers, administrators, newpaper publishers and 'journalists' - self interest is their motivating factor.

Whilst I recognise the club chairmen and owners are under a great deal of pressure I am convinced, if left to their own devices, they would do the right thing. I believe they understand the sporting integrity issue and agree with it. The view of the overwhelming majority of the fans is well known.

So the people who take money out of the game are trying to dictate to the people who put money into the game, then criticise and belittle them when they won't dance to their tune.

Believe it or not but I've wanted the right thing done throughout for the sake of sporting integrity.

The thing that sticks in my craw is that we wouldn't even be having this conversation if the Club in question wasn't Rangers (or Celtic for that matter).

So who else thinks that tomorrow the SFL clubs will vote Yes to elect Sevco to the SFL, No to allow the SFL board to decide what league they start in (meaning it is Div 3 for them) and then on Monday the SPL chairman will shat their pants and on Monday vote Sevco straight back into the top flight?

Hopefully me thinking that outcome is likely is merely a side-effect of reading too many orcmedia threads...

I think there would be social unrest.

Lecture today to the diddy clubs from Henry McLeish. http://www.scotsman....delay-1-2406423

"We can't afford not to be able to move on after Friday," said McLeish. "Unless or until we put our house in order, a lot of people will be looking at us and saying we are not fit for 
purpose. The game is bigger than the SPL, SFL and SFA.

McLeish admits there is no hard proof of the apocalyptic figures which have been produced in recent days to illustrate the losses which would be suffered if Rangers are placed in the Third Division, but he is convinced it would cause significant problems for many clubs.

"I don't have any empirical evidence to justify it but, in terms of the research I did, there are a lot of clubs in a very precarious situation," he said. "How that would fall if Rangers went into the Third Division, you can't identify the detailed consequences.

"But there is an instinct which many people share that it wouldn't be positive for those clubs who are struggling on the margins"

But Henry was never great with numbers, except when he managed to scam, and get away with £38,000 when an MP http://www.dailymail...penny-back.html

Yes Henry we have problems of honesty and integrity at the SFA, SPL and SFL. You too are part of that problem.

Should be said that as well as the big "they've gotta vote First Division" article from McLeish... I wonder who might chair the reconstruction committee, btw?... there's also an article in today's Scotsman suggesting tomorrow's vote may be cancelled as too many clubs are in opposition.

Has that claim appearred anywhere else? Can SFL Board even do that?

Do the clubs not vote for adjournment, the board could propose it. Edited by sons superhero

Agreed.....We really do need to rid our game of these parasites. For too long the tail has wagged the dog. mad.gif
