As the crane hired to lift me from my holiday sun lounger creaked to a halt ensuring that I was steady enough to stand before proceeding for another 3 course lunch (that I didn’t need or even want) I noticed that Jane Lewis was outside ‘The Big Hoose’ on the plasma hanging behind the bar.
As this was national news I knew something big had happened. My phone was securely tucked away in the hotel safe (I decided that I didn’t want to be disturbed apart from the usual family needs – 3 year olds constantly want ice creams in hot countries it seems) I had already spent my 2 Euro daily internet allowance, which was only allowed for betting on Euro 2012 purposes and not checking SPL nonsense so I decided to forgo lunch, get my phone and spend a further 2 Euro.
It was worth missing a 3 course gluttony on the scale of ego’s in the Edministon Drive padded seats for. Ding dong. The witch was dead.
The pantomine was over. The reaper was no longer behind them. All the lies, mistruths that lead to false hopes and some astonishing over-flinching by some obsessed Celtic fans was over. The internet bampots had been correct all along.
Charles Green from that point has been like a door step salesman trying to get you to switch energy supplier. It’s a painless switch to Newco FC he claims, just sign here, we will do the rest and remember nothing CHANGES just days after stating that a failed CVA meant the end of Rangers history.
Green doesn’t have his problems to seek and his task to convince former fans of Rangers to transfer over to Newco FC wasn’t helped by his hamfisted attempt to win favour by asking for suggestions for the renaming of Murray Park and then Walter Smith stating that Green should sell him to him and his consortium while knowingly letting out the attack dogs. With the timely leaked story that McCoist was thinking about walking away the dogs had been poked with a big stick.
Add to that the fact that Newco FC doesn’t have a license to play football, doesn’t have a league to play football in, could face crippling sanctions before Newco FC even kick a ball, doesn’t have any players, doesn’t have a sponsor, doesn’t have a kit deal and basically all it has is a stadium and a training centre then you have more problems your average Greek bank.
This is all done to the constant drone of the media and Rangers fans stating that the club has been punished enough and some clemency should be shown. For once they have a point. The point is completely misguided by misinformation they are being fed. It’s like feeding a kid Brussel sprouts. They know they don’t like them, they know that they don’t want them but they are eating it anyway knowing that all it’s good for is hot air.
Newco FC can’t and shouldn’t face punishment for the club formally known as Rangers crimes. They have nothing to do with Rangers FC and any decent lawyer or even a quite crap one could shot holes in any punishment should they choose to contest what the SPL/SFA dream up for them. Any real time punishment isn’t now possible so today’s announcement that the SPL investigation into dual contracts has been delayed is no surprise. It’s not a big conspiracy it’s just delaying the grave robbing.
So, Monday will see the SPL chairmen meet to discuss Newco FC. If the SPL chairmen want to punish Newco FC then the only option open to them is not to vote them into the SPL. If the SFA want to punish Newco FC then the only punishment open to them is to refuse a license.
The misinformation comes from that we are being told we need to give Rangers FC a break and not punish them further. Aye, well they are dead anyway so it’s all Brussel sprout induced hot air. A waste of time.
The newly found fans of Newco FC seem to want goodwill shown on their new club. Problem is that Newco FC have no reason to get any goodwill. They have no history or record to confirm what they will bring to the table.
They want to ride roughshod over Dundee, Partick Thistle, Falkirk, Raith Rovers or Morton who all could lay justifiable claims, backed by hard evidence, of what they bring to the game and show the scars of years of hard work to get that evidence. The SPL are going to be asked to vote on plans that are based on mibbees and what if’s.
As one murky chapter closes another opens that brings all 38 Scottish league clubs into the equation. It could also see us showing our hand in things don’t settle the way our CEO wants. England again has been mentioned but that is another bucket of sick that I don’t want to drink at this time.
This isn’t the end it’s just the beginning.
