I know Fozzie posted the Heralds take on this earlier,but here is the Daily Ranjurs version.....slightly different,with a bit i will quote that has got me curious.

Charles Green bought assets worth £110m for just £1.5m

[/left][/font]

Now excuse me if i am picking this up wrong,but the quote in that story has me wondering.Do they mean he will lose his £2.75m if he loses the battle to keep the players,or does he no longer have to pay it as he isn't getting what he was purchasing.If its the latter then the takeover basically has only cost him £1.5m

I love the quote in that article about their 'valuable car park'. Now, if anyone knows that area they will know that there's ACRES of space between the Govan stand and Govan road lying derelict. The old tenements of Iona Street and such-like have been demolished and nothing is being built on them.

Absolutely delusional that the Albion car park is valuable. Shocking piece of 'journalism'.

I was worried the proposal would be dripping with diamonds and gold, far too good to turn down and integrity would be out the windae

Having seen it, its just a joke and very easy for chairmen to say take a hike.

Again, are they really trying?

Is it possible that Regan and Doncaster have already been given the golden handshake to be the fall guys and are being told to make it look like they're doing everything they can to get Sevco in, while in reality all along they've actually been deliberately pushing people the opposite way?

A giant ruse where Rangers/Sevco are allowed to die and Hughie Green gets to walk off into the sunset and build an Asda at Ibrox, and the SFA and SPL etc have plausable deniability if everything does go tits up without them?

Clyde have made another new statement this afternoon

"The Board of Clyde Football Club has received the papers in advance of tomorrows SFL meeting and will consider the Heads of Terms supplied. We continue to have the same fundamental concerns about this process, however the overriding concern is a point which we have made to the SFL.

We have received absolutely no information on the organisation Sevco Scotland Ltd whom we are being asked, and encouraged, to vote straight into the top division of the SFL under resolution 2 and possibly into SFL3 under Resolution 1. We have no business plan, list of directors, details of ownership, statement of capital adequacy or any proposals relating to the provision of any similar information in the near future. David Longmuir has clearly stated that he will distribute all the information he has got or is able to distribute.

Whilst the notion that there is a leap of faith to be taken in terms of some of the matters, there can be no leap of faith with something as fundamental as knowing who is being admitted to the league. The very fact that there is no information of any kind being made available on this company undermines the authorities efforts to direct the new entrant to SFL1. It is actually impossible for any member of the SFL to make an objective assessment of the proposals under Resolutions 1 and 2 and could be seen as irresponsible to support either proposal in such a void of information.

It is our hope that some credibility can be introduced to this process and we would ask that whoever holds information on Sevco Scotland Ltd provides a full and detailed pack to David Longmuir in order that, even at the eleventh hour, the SFL clubs are given reason to support any Resolutions that they might wish to vote on. We have to assume that the SFA and SPL hold such information otherwise they would not press so heavily for entry to SFL1.

If a leap of faith is to be taken, then in the current circumstances it will be taken blindly and the only logical outcome of taking that kind of risk would be to enter them to SFL3, where, should any subsequent issues arise, they will be contained within the lowest league rather than disrupting the top flight of the SFL.

The other matter that is entirely outside the gift of the SFL is the need for the SPL clubs to confirm that, contrary to what Neil Doncaster stated on their behalf, the SPL will meet its obligations to the SFL under the Settlement Agreement."

It seems a fair point. Theyre just highlighting that the SFL are being asked to vote in a Club which nobody knows anything about. So presumably SFA, the governing body, will be able to give Longmuir the required information so a reasoned decision can be met? If not, that's why theyre being asked to take a leap of faith & there's a case to say theyre being very generous that they might consider it, but only for Division 3. So that if this new Club cant complete their fixtures or whatever, at least it wont be a league higher up. Really, any doubt, shouldnt be any league

I hope the SFA and SPL recognize the massive favour theyre getting if they are voted back in without required info !

Another fucking wonderful statement from Clyde.

Best bit for me is the part in bold.

That second statement from Clyde is incredible. What on earth are the clubs voting for, when so little is known about Vichy Rangers (had to use it, best name for them yet)??

If they have not then why is there a discussion? Someone has applied to the SFL on Sevco's behalf, whether it be Hughie Green, Cockwomble, Longmuir or Regan an application has been made and proposals have been attached to that application.

You must have read on here that Sevco might still be smuggled into the SPL. An application to the SFL would get in the way of that. Sevco have not, yet, applied for entry to the SFL (I think).

Couldn't it more likely be that SPL clubs themselves can't agree on what to offer? Not all SPL clubs want expansion. Not all SPL clubs want fairer voting. Not all SPL clubs want reduced income. Maybe it's caused innertia.

4.A working party will be formed, including three representatives from both the SPL and SFL, to devise a new structure for the senior professional game in Scotland.

Ooh....yes please!

:1eye

FFS, this has to be the most ironic development yet.

Yes, yes, we'll vote for a proposal that forms a working party consisting of the corrupt bawbags who've been attempting to screw us for the last couple of months.

Genuis! Why didn't I think of that...?

The clincher: being asked to vote for a club that doesn't yet actually exist and without any transparency as to whether they can fulfil a season's fixtures and obligations.

On the 12th of July, Rangers did die.

While I agree your scenario would be more likely, could mine be possible? Would it surprise anyone? They could then take the credit if it worked out well, but pass the blame to the fans for "holding them to ransom" if it didn't.

Come on Brechin, if you're planning on voting yes then just come out and say it. The more time I get to plan which Highland League team I'll be watching more the better.

Thusfar, only Quislingmuir have officially confirmed they're 'Yes', IIRC.

If you want to join in getting your message across have a look at

http://honestyinsport.weebly.com/

For those who feel strongly it would be good if they sent E mails to the SFL offices, with copies to SFA and SPL saying what we want. The heading needs to be for "For the attention of Brechin" or whatever. A separate email for each club chairman!

Use your own words for the email if you want.

I have chosen videos which demonstrate honesty to be attached to the email to make sure they get there ok. If we can get a few thousand emails going it should be significant enough to make them pay attention biggrin.gif

If you belong to a club forum/board please post a link up there. The more who can hit them over the next 24 hours with emails and files the stronger the voice.
