  1. Terry Hurlock Loyal liked a post in a topic by The Dude in Rangers Propose League Change (Inc "B Team")   
    The Lowland League chairman mentioned last week that it  had been discussed but there had been little support for it. It appears something has changed that the proposal is out there now.

    Club can control their workload, their diet, their recovery and every other aspect of their day to day development. Out on loan, you're at the whim of another manager doing what is best for his club rather than the loan player. 
    If they want to try someone in a new position they can't exactly phone the club he is on loan at and demand they play a right winger at left back this week.

    Because we can keep players together as a squad and play with the same tactics as the first team - it makes the transition to the first team easier.

    I'm no here to slag off guys that donate their own time and effort, free of charge, no matter how much I disagree with them.
    I just dont waste my time listening and let them get on with it.

    I said back in March that Rangers and Hearts will say a lot without actually doing a fucking thing and was called allsorts for it. All bark and no bite.

    Budge is even more toothless than Robertson. If she was going to launch legal action, she would have already. She was never going to but it sounds good and keeps the donations rolling in as she gets to play at running a fitba club using everybody else's money.

    Most have been able to use the furlough scheme and have guys playing for token amounts every week. Its the clubs where guys are making their living full-time without making life-changing sums that are really struggling (your Dunfermlines, Hamiltons, Hearts etc)

    You stop jumping on that bandwagon as well.
    I am quick enough to criticise The Dude, in this instance he has a point.

    Clubs giving it away to season ticket holders (rightly) means there's no additional revenue generated. Farcical.

    Sky have limited each club to only stream games to the same amount that bought season tickets the previous season. Which means everyone having piss ups at a season ticket holders house. Farcical to enforce.

    If he done what McGregor does 90% of the time there would be riots in the stands 😂

    I love Big Wes for his penalty save against Lego Muncher, but I just CANNOT listen to more than 3 seconds of Simon Ferry's junkie sounding voice.

    Think of it the other way... Why would they be so desperate to avoid breaching any of the new contracts? There couldn't be a cash flow problem...

    If only the club applied the same logic towards the fans.

    You’d be better looking at Simunovic. It’s highly unusual for celtic to let a player who can get them a decent fee contract expire like that. They’d normally trigger an extension in order to then sell them, even if for a smaller fee. See Sinclair last season as an example. 
    Not suggesting celtic have any kind of immediate financial problems, because they don’t. That being said, they’ll be impacted as much as anybody else. Their business model relies on 2 things... firstly, Champions League qualification. If that doesn’t happen then they will sell a player or two to make up the difference - see Dembele & Tierney last two years. 
    The challenge they will have is that nobody knows what next seasons Champions League looks like in terms of qualification, monetary value etc. Secondly, nobody knows what the transfer market will look like so they don’t have the certainty of being able to sell somebody like Edouard. Added to that, the timing of qualification & transfer windows is also uncertain. 
    Interestingly, it provides us with a potential opportunity if our investors are in a position to perhaps go a little further & if we can somehow manage to get the £20-25m share issue going it will give us a huge advantage in the transfer window when a lot of clubs will need the cash. celtic will not be able to spend much on players until either of the scenarios (CL football or sales) occur. 
    Our ability to do that is also uncertain given our investor base will all have their own challenges to deal with at the moment

    Nothing concrete but there seems growing chat about it beyond Rangers forums etc.
