Leggo rips into charles green because a european super league isn't viable.... yet a mere paragraph before he's talking about the SFA & SPL going into 'nuclear meltdown' if Rangers ask a court to delay the start of the new season :lol:

i cant read his blogs on my phone, can only ever see half of it. Used to really like reading his stuff, not recently though. Seems to have completely lost it. A copy and paste would be appreciated.

Here's a part copy & paste for your perusal.

London gangs...yaddah-yaddah....dodgy agents....yaddah-yaddah....these guys are NOT the True Blue stauncher-than-you Knights, so they must be up to something.....(continued ad infinitum.....)

The wee man has been bought.

Sad really.

Rangers would be foolhardy to take the SFA to court like that. UEFA would get involved and we'd be up to our knees in brown smelly stuff.

Another Leggo rant at Green with no foundation. He's just another sore TBK loser.

RANGERS' NUCLEAR OPTION TO SEND SPL AND SFA INTO MELTDOWN-

Exclusive

RANGERS could take the nuclear option if they decide to challenge the Scottish Football Association’s year-long ban on the club signing players.

And if they do, it would send the whole of the Scottish Premier League into meltdown.

Despite what Charles Green tries to make media mugs believe, he does NOT own Rangers and he and the Green Gang may NEVER get their paws on the Ibrox club.

For the moment, Rangers remain in administration, with the only people legally entitled to speak for the club on such weighty matters as any appeal to the law of the land against Stewart Regan’s SFA, being Duff and Phelps.

There are two routes which they can go down.

1 – Rangers can take their appeal to the Swiss based Court of Sporting Arbitration.

2 – Rangers can avail themselves of the law of the land, Scots Law and launch a civil case against the SFA in the Court of Session in Edinburgh.

The trouble with both routes is that the law moves exceedingly slow. Which means that it is highly unlikely a verdict would be delivered in either Switzerland or Edinburgh in time for the new season, leaving Rangers at the mercy of the SFA judgment.

One option would be for Rangers to go to the Court of Session to seek Interim Interdict to freeze the SFA verdict until it is dealt with, either in Switzerland or Edinburgh.

But it is the other option which is the nuclear one. The one which would plunge the Scottish Premier League into meltdown and cause a huge rift on the sixth floor at Hampden where the SPL and SFA have their offices next door to each other.

It is, for Rangers to go to Court of Session to seek Interim Interdict to stop the new Scottish Premier League season starting on August 4th in order that Rangers do not suffer a disadvantage should their bid in either Switzerland or Edinburgh to have the SFA verdict quashed, be successful, but only after they had played matches, unable to strengthen their squad after having lost a raft of top players.

I’ve spoken to two lawyers and they believe that is the advice Rangers’ counsel, Richard Keen QC should be offering Duff and Phelps.

Both lawyers believe there is a strong argument to be put before the Court of Session for either Interim Interdict.

But it is the second option, the nuclear one, which Rangers may favour, as it is the one which would cause the greatest disruption and damage to the two ruling bodies in the Scottish game, the SPL and the SFA who they and the club’s fans are convinced are actively engaged in a witch hunt against Rangers.

………

AND………

CHARLIE GREEN’S been laying on the charm and the smarm with a trowel when meeting with Rangers’ fans groups this week.

His blarney moved into the realms of baloney when he spoke of his convictions that there will be a European Super League within his lifetime and that Rangers will be in it.

Unless Green reckons he’ll totter on into his late eighties, there’s no chance of that.

The talk about a Euro Super League has been around for the last quarter of a century or more and led to the European Cup been transformed in the Champions League, which has been tweaked and streamlined over the last two decades and will no doubt be subjected to further wee changes.

That is the European Super League. It’s called the Champions League.

When he spoke to supporters, Green was also desperately trying to distance himself from the big boss of the Green Gang, the leader of Manchester Quality Street Gang, Michael McDonald.

Unfortunately for Charlie Boy, McDonald is now on record, quoted extensively by Scott Burns in the Scottish Daily Express, laying out his plans for Rangers, plans which include the decidedly dodgy Paul Stretford.

To add to the mystery, Green told Rangers supporters that, on top of the £8.5M the Green Gang has deposited in a client account with London lawyers, Field Fisher Waterhouse, there is already another staggering £20M in the pot for Rangers, put there by just half a dozen of the 20 investors he claims he has got lined up.

But that all six of those big time players, plus the other 14, who have so far paid not one thin dime, insist on remaining anonymous.

But Charles Green also claimed that all 20 names are known to Duff and Phelps. That all 20 names are known to Duff and Phelps managing director, David Whitehouse.

REALLY?

Maybe David Whitehouse can be prevailed upon to release the names of the men he is going to sell Rangers to BEFORE the sale actually goes through.

Maybe the top football lawyer at Field Fisher Waterhouse, Daniel Geey, can be prevailed upon to reveal the origins of the £8.5M deposited in a client account at his firm by the Green Gang.

For following the fiasco of the £24M deposited by Craig Whyte in a client account with a firm of London lawyers as proof of funds, only for it to turn out not be his cash in the first place, this time around, only complete disclosure will convince anyone with half a brain.

In other words, unless Charles Alexander Green, date of birth, May 23rd, 1953, comes clean before his 59th birthday on Wednesday, only a half wit would fall for his charm, his smarm, his snake oil salesman patter, his blarney and his baloney.

CSA moves fairly quick and there are things called expidited process - which most lawyers would be reasonably familiar with so baically more piss and vinegar from Leggat and I hope never to run into the 2 lawyers that advised him.

Oh how he bleeds for TBK

Bosman was a player.

Rangers are a club.

A subtle but crucial difference.

What's the difference ? restraint of trade is restraint of trade whither on an individual or a company/club, so you are wrong there is no difference subtle or otherwise.

Uefa can't punish a player but can and will hammer a club that takes them on.

You seem to misunderstand the content, Bosman is a landmark in so much as his case stressed the law of the land as being far and above football "rules", if the law and natural justice has been transgressed in the case of the Rangers uefa the slimy bastards and the equally mhankie sfa would have their collective baws booted into orbit.

For that to happen it would require the club to defend itself and the interests of our supporters, the question is will the club grasp the mettle and do what is required to protect our interests.

UEFA don't go after the club but after the Association (the SFA). They will instruct the Association to punish the club but have no jurisdiction over the club themselves. They would use sanctions against all Scots clubs as a threat if the SFA failed to punish us.

Consequently, you need a watertight case in law because you will need to fight attempts at subsequent punishment. You also need the ability to use EU law against UEFA which is what Bosman did. Sion tried to fight UEFA in court but I don't think their case was that good and they were not in the EU but in Switzerland. Nevertheless, its a high risk strategy.

Well let's hope we have the balls to take them on then.

Also as I said I was only 8 or 9 at the time so not sure of the details of the case had a look around the on lawnet site which gave the details in a short article.

Bosman also wasn't the first to try the ruling either it was a Newcastle player who eventually moved to Arsenal.

Do you think we have a case with them then.

I honestly don't know.

This whole 'bringing the game into disrepute' stuff could fall foul of EU legislation because it is too vague.

But, you really need a top QC who is not emotionally involved. And even then it could be high risk.
