Goian goes for nothing I think under clause from TUPEing. I honestly dont think the money is there to pay them all for 5 months til January.

Has he got the £500,000 back from Burke + Hare yet? And are they still after him for the rest of the sale price?

Edit for : Mon the FIFE

I thought the ones that tuped over have accepted they are now contracted to Sevco/newco/Rangers, so they would be due a fee. Rangers still seem to think they are due money for the ones that did blow town.

Lee Wallace's girlfriend and family were in Foxton's Bar in Glenrothes today and she was bleating about how Craig Levein has it in for him as he wasn't picked for the Scotland squad. She kept going on about it until another diner mentioned that if he played for a big club in the top division that might change. She then changed her moaning that it's u fair that they are traveling up on the morning of the game up to Peterhead then asked where Peterhead was! She was a classy bird.

The ones that TUPE'd took with them their contracts which when they took the pay cut (feck you Jig :angry:) had sell on/walk away clauses inserted. Goians was zero iirc.

The walkaways they would argue are due them but I think the Davis money that was paid by Southampton resides with the SFA at the moment.

Whatever, I think they'll get something for them. Won't ruin my day if they don't.

In a way, he's at the perfect club for such an approach. The fans only want instant success because they're mainly thick and inadequate. For these reasons, they're also incapable of examining what he's doing or worrying about its viability.

It is a gamble, but not a personal one. He's gambling with the money and the club of the stupid.

They deserve him.

You're right. There does actually appear to be some kind of logic there, but for him rather than for the club.

He didn't come here to run a sustainable club that can grow organically into something bigger. He came to make as much money as possible, quickly. The way to do that is to attract big crowds, then sell up. It is a gamble for him, but his personal investment hasn't been huge, basically because he doesn't have huge wealth. If it goes tits up, he'll live with that ok. If it goes well, he might make decent money.

Green could make that the title of his book. :)

It looks like that: the BBC knew at 5.10pm that the kick off over 2 and a half hours later was getting delayed laugh.gif

AAAARRRGGGHHHHHHHH! !!!!!!!

Right, I have tried to be fairly level headed and rational and contribute concisely and sensibly to these pages whenever I felt I had something worth contributing.

And that is why I stayed away from the keyboard yesterday: I was so, so raging when I heard the radio pumping out all that garbage from Murray, McCoist, McLeish and every other Rangers apologist, about how they did not accept anything wrong had been done, how no one can strip them of titles, only punishments they accept will be considered etc, etc, bloody etc!!!!

But today has tipped me over the edge. I am sick bloody fed up of this club riding roughshod over every sense of fairness and justice; ignoring the consequences and sanctions arising from their years of mismanagement, cheating and possibly criminal, probably negligent actions.

Tell me how, someone, anyone, tell me how they can possibly justify signing all these players on ridiculous wages for the third division? And not only that, tell me how and why they should be allowed to when they still owe tens of millions of pounds to God knows how many individuals and businesses and football clubs!!

It is bad enough all these other poor companies having been shafted by them, but what about all the football clubs still being owed money? How can McCoist be allowed to bring in players when they are still owe money to other clubs? I thought all those debts had to be paid? Have they been?

And what is the point of this transfer embargo? If it doesn't start til the end of the month, then every other club in the country has one as well!! Nobody else can sign between September and January, what punishment is that to Rangers!! Why on earth was the transfer ban not instigated from the date the SFA panel or whatever it was handed out the punishment?

Rangers and the vast majority of their fans are kidding themselves they are the victims in this whole shoddy saga. The reality is they have and continue to be treated with kid gloves and favorably by countless individuals in the media, whole media organisations and many of the powers that be in football.

I have always treated both sides of the horrible divide in Scottish football with equal ambivalence; I really couldn't give a monkeys about either of them. I support Forfar and always have and always will. But they way Rangers have acted and been treated - and I have no doubts whatsoever Celtic would have been treated every bit as differently from any other club in Scotland had the shoe been on the other foot - has left me totally sickened and totally despising everything that the former Rangers did represent and continue to do so.

Rant over. Sorry

Err, I think you're supposed to say " FORFAR TIL I DIE ! " nowadays . ;) Even the 3rd div fans are doing it.

After they pay it back (aye, right) they won't see it again. It was a loan.

Technically they worked in exchange for a loan.

Is that legal?

Who mentioned the Truck Act a while ago?

The EBTs however were supposed to take bonuses out of the tax system. The money was due to the players/staff but the idea was that they could get the money as a loan, invest it to make a profit and pay it back before getting it again when they retired to some tax haven where it wouldn't be taxed at all. An easily understandable scheme in companies where executives stay for many years but a total nightmare in the world of football where players change club and country on a regular basis and it can be almost impossible to recover money which is due. It also explains why Souness could be given a loan 10 years after leaving the club but this would imply that EBTs existed at Rangers many years before 2001. His EBT would have been put in place while he was still employed by the club but he did not request a loan until many years later.

Mainstream Corporate Media (controlled by some of the wealthiest men on Earth) + Football Clubs (controlled by some of the wealthiest men on Earth) + Corporate Bookies (controlled by some of the wealthiest men on Earth) = Shysters Paradise.

The Shysters Paradise serves as a major distraction dividing and distracting the proles permitting the shysters to scam until doomsday.

So did every game they played at Ibrox in the SPL get delayed when 50,000 turned up for them? Of course, they all had Season Tickets then whereas now their bags of pennies need to be counted. Barrs will be delighted to have so many empty bottles returned to them. :lol:

What would be a sensible guess for the weekly wage of this lot?

You must be looking at around £60,000.

£60,000 X 52 = £3,120,000

On top you have other players and coaches + the running costs of the ground and MP.

Is that the complete list of Sevco Season Ticket holders? :P

Edit: Why don't you just try ¨

Presume this game is a sell out.

Have just driven back down from the gym and spotted 4 Sevco fans in full regalia outside a pub.

Given that we are only about 3 mile from Castle Greyskull I can only conclude that they tried but couldn't get in.
