I’m glad we have some Celtic to think about. Some Fitba’. That’s why we are all here, right?
I was beginning to think that all we had to be bothered about was spleen bursting laughter, death and taxes. Tomorrow on the slope of Easter Road we will have THE CHANCE to go to our 15th league win in a row. How could that be devalued?
That’s for tomorrow.
We have seen some sinister actions from those involved in the demise of R*ngers in this and those who are now claiming a vested interest in a lean but not so mean punishment for the club. Up first were publicity seekers and narcissistic politicians.
Shona Robinson – The Minister For Sport And Commonwealth Games – and the self styled President Of The Greatest Wee Country He Has Lived in Alec Salmond BOTH ADMITTED discussing the R*ngers situation with Duff and Phelps and the HMRC. Both stated they have put pressure on HMRC to come to a soft agreement (HMRC have been known to reach Sweetheart agreements in the past BUT…..late last year this caused a ruckus in the Right Big Hoose).
This was just another case – I thought – off politicians waffling on about things that they canny influence. Everyone does this. I have been talking for weeks about helping Kate Perry get over her split from Russell Brand (A chicken tikka fae The Spice Of Life, two litre bottle of Irn Bru – diet of course – a DVD of Top Gun and the music of The Wonder Stuff…it’s a sure fire winner!) but I know that for all ma bravado it’s basically a waste of hot air.
David Cameroon also commented. Aye, he would eat a $hit sandwich and blow a giant panda for votes up here.
As we learn more aboot Whyte and the way he seems to have structured the club any hope that some humility would come over them was lost when we find out that they ATTEMPT to still sign Fat Boy Coosan ALL with the administrators blessing. Jesus H Corbett.
As dinner ladies, jannies, admin staff and toilet ducks are preparing to sign oan they want to gie a washed up mercenary a bumper contract (in real terms when looking at their predicament). DON’T THEY LEARN?
The administrators seem to have been seduced by the superiority complex that exists around this institution. A word that has been devalued and over used this week. Airdrie were called an institution when David Murray attempted to put them out the gemme in 2000 for an unpaid £30,000 (see @_thecelticblog for details) and we have heard ‘talk’ of a ‘worldwide institution’ despite the clubs own findings showing differently (think Newcastle with a few supporters clubs in Northern Ireland and North America).
If anything this week has further strengthened R*ngers image as the establishment club, which is ironic considering that HMRC are firing the bullets into the wounded corpse.
Now, FIFA don’t take kindly to interference in the game they govern. No Sir, there has been precedent set. Do you think we need to let the SNP know this? This letter from – SHOCK! HORROR GULP! – seems to make it clear that Shona Robison’s office and presumably HER know! (thanks to @beebhoy7 for the tip).
We really need to let Stewart Regan, Shona Robison, Alec Salmond, UEFA & FIFA know what these charlatans are doing will damage the whole Scottish Gemme. Get e-mailing. It’s free unlike posting a letter first class, which is Craig Whyte robbery.
My friends at the Celtic Network ask me place the Say No To Newco logo on the site. I like helping out friends though my stance over the punishment if – REMEMBER they haven’t yet – they are found guilty of financial doping has changed.
I was adamant that they shouldnae be allowed back in the SPL. My ‘take’ that administration seems cheap and easy has slightly been tempered if – as Fat Eck says – they have pay the taxman back in full over a period of time. This would financially cripple them for years, which would be fun to watch and the Bankrupt Bounce they are experiencing just now would soon disappear as they struggled to feed the greed of the xxxxxlers.
Liquidation would see a Newco. They would need to apply for a license either in the SPL or the SFL. I was all for them going to Annan and East Stirling and that was all I was willing to accept.
Well, they cling on to their honours like a baby and a comforter. It’s became fairly obvious that short sightedness has seen any sense or feeling of guilt not be felt. They are quite happy to be seen as cheats, get favours and forgive the licentiousness of one chairman and the criminality (supposed) of another as long as the five stars remain.
Losing that could be the ultimate punishment and kill the Newco before it gets off the ground. What they want is full quarter pounder meaty, grease dripping, cheese & bacon topped, double decker R*ngers and instead what they are getting is a burger on a pan loaf.
When your stomach is used to gluttony an empty plate will see you attempt to find something more filling.
That still sounds like Utopia to me.
I’m off to find out what price the first goal at Ibroke today being a penalty.
