  1. An article full of conjecture with nothing to substantiate it. He claims that players such as the '35 million rated Dembele' is in the final year of his contract - when in fact his contract runs until 2021. The Co-op loan is a red herring which means nothing in the bigger scheme of things. They had somewhere in the region of 38 million sitting in their bank as per last accounts, they could simply pay it off or punt a player. Fuck me, they've made roughly 20 million plus over the last two seasons just with sell on clauses. Worst case scenario, they have a board with real, serious money who could drop 17 million and not blink - where as we had a board needing a fans group to stump up a million for 1/2 of Ashleys shares. That Co-op loan means fuck all and I don't see why folk get concerned about it. Then there's this belief that without CL revenue that Bheast FC are fucked - they're not. Their whole business model is based upon SPFL and and cup fixtures / revenue - they don't factor in European money in their running budget. They have a self-substantiating business model which if the push came to the shove then they could off-load their highest earners or Desmond would simply open his wallet. DLP is now clutching at straws and rapidly becoming our own version of Phil-4-Names - something I've told him personally after his last blog about the supposed C1872 loan for shares. Either back-up the claims or say fuck all.

    * The Generic Laugh at celtc Thread *

    Spiers on McGlone: These are just some of a number of plugs he gave for his bigoted mate McGlone's failed Sellic magazine in the pages of the Herald. But you see, Spiers whilst on his anti-bigotry Rangers campaign went somehow very quiet when asked to pass comment on McGlones cartoon sketch called 'The Dirty Orange Bastards' - very selective is the Odious one

    * The Generic Laugh at celtc Thread *

    True story and one I've mentioned on here before. Around 2001/02ish, McGlone was expelled from the marital home by ra wife. Homeless Matt accepted an invitation from ra Bhoy in Corduroy to share Chez Spiersy for several blissful weeks. The oddest of odd couples was a symbiotic relationship. During McGlone's five year tenure as a columnist on Ra Sellik View, he ran an end of season poll - continued over from his 'zine, 'Ra Alternative View'. One of the categories (and I'm being serious here) was - 'Most Objective Journalist on matters Sellik' - The Paedophile Apologist won this award from the readers of Ra Sellik View five years in a row. I can only imagine a well practised Matt provided Spiers with the required amount of jobby jabbing. Bottom sex provision to a bottom feeder for accommodation. A somewhat botanical 'Summer of Love' if you like

    Ha ha. Fat Matt 'cokehead' McGlone. I spent years mocking this cunt to the point I thought he was going to actually end it all If a guarantee could be obtained that he was house trained, he would make an interesting pet.

    Honest Mistakes

    They were far from random HMRC employees: Michael and Anne Lynch - both holding positions of seniority. Derek and Arlene Sugden - Derek head of debt management and Arlene assistant director (friends of the Lynchs). Robert Bruce Kilpatrick - supervisory or management position within HMRC. All on Twitter (most accounts now deleted or locked) - use of H*** and orange bastards aplenty. A few accounts inextricably linked to people involved with the Charlotte Fakes account. Anne Lynch on the wine taking a screenshot and inadvertently posting her works email account containing the subject matter headline and recipients. Michael Lynch tweeting one night that 'Hector the Tax Inspector' was about to visit Govan again...they turned up a week or two later. HMRC took the 'we can't disclose what actions were taken' stance - which is understandable.. but had that been us tweeting Fenian Bastards or leaking info then our doors would have been going in at six in the morning.

    The Sleeping Giant

    Kinda hard not to mention them when stating about their allocation being cut and their dominance about to be challenged. Just to add, it's not a VB article but simply a post by one of their members.

    The Old Lady - FF

    'The Old Lady of Edmiston Drive' has been on the go a lot longer than that jumped up prick sherbrook_loyal has been going to games. Surprised he could remove Dingwalls cock from his mouth long enough to make a post. Speak about letting a wee bit of admin privileges go to your head
  12. Not the survey involving the Union Bears where 2500 or so replied stating they were interested, they also mentioned doing a survey on related costs etc etc. Have tried looking for the outcome of that but can't find it anywhere. As an aside, safe-standing would have been an ideal project for the RFFF monies.
  13. How long does Bheast FC 'safe standing trial' last for as they've already had it shut down on a few occasions due to behavioural issues. Wasn't there a stipulation made which stated that no other Scottish club would be given permission until their trial period was concluded?
  14. C1872 were supposedly conducting a survey into this as one of their projects, but that will no doubt now be shelved

    JD Sports to become official retail partner

    First hit on Google throws up: https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/40358177 As for the payment to SD, it was in the annual accounts - 3 million to SD with around 1 million due back in dividends.

    It was two posts relating to one occasion and where I explained that I would like to see the same set-up that King previously mentioned where ST monies would be held in an escrow account. So, back to the current discussion or do want to continue diverting (which is the norm for you)?

    JD Sports to become official retail partner

    When he was in a position to do so. He was no longer in that position when C1872 and JW bought out his shareholding.

    Coming from someone who couldn't take a comment in context and ignore the prior and previous posts about it. Still, ignore the subject matter and divert - it's what you do. Maybe Spin City has your log in...

    JD Sports to become official retail partner

    Ashley had around 8% - so he was nothing more than a minor shareholder. He had no influence or powers to call an EGM etc. As for fan ownership, how's that working out when they're about to see their holding diluted* which equates to their members donations being literally pissed against the wall. *unless they use the projects monies to maintain their shareholding (members about to be consulted apparently).

    JD Sports to become official retail partner

    There were no options available to us, the fact of the matter is that Ashley played the good-guy (and King like a fiddle). If he decided to 'stick' then nothing would have changed. Do you honestly believe that Ashley ever gave us a second thought / lost sleep at night over a few unsold tops? The one question that has went unanswered is why did C1872 see the need to spend a million on buying out 1/2 of Ashleys shareholding when he had zero power and no voting rights. He was a minnow in the bigger scheme of things - his shareholding was completely unrelated to SD and the retail deal. C1872 buying him out had absolutely nothing to do with the SD deal despite what some would leave you to believe. Just saying...

    Was wondering how long it would take for the usual suspects to appear Regardless whether we got 10p / 25p or a fiver a shirt - the fact is that the boycott hurt us more than it did Ashley. To think otherwise is being naive in the extreme.

    What's the new retail deal and how much is it worth?

    JD Sports to become official retail partner

    ...and now? SD is probably one of the largest if not the largest sports outwear shops on the high street. If they do choose to be our outlet of choice, do we boycott them again - at the detriment of the club (again)?

    JD Sports to become official retail partner

    Spunk a million of C1872's members money to buy 1/2 his shares - then the club enters into a further 1 year deal with him...yet it was seen as some masterstroke from King You couldn't make it up.
