Is this the designer 'fans rep' look - unkempt, unshaven, jacket collar upturned against adversity?

Fuck that.

He doesn't speak for anyone I know.

This no mark is a burbling arsehole seeking attention like a big wean. Renewals are always at this time. Bring it forward furry and let's see how many supporters put their hard earned money into your pie in the sky trust (sic). Dave King doesn't even want to be associated with it. WATP

I'm sure you get about 4 weeks from renew issue to cut off date no matter when they come out.

So this will be in keeping with previous seasons then. I can understand some people wanting to wait till after the review comes out but was wondering why I'd seen so many saying about the lack of renew time when I thought it was about normal.

It's usually into Mid June. They came out this time last year.

Can remember when it went into July and the public sale wasn't until the start of August. Of course that was when we had debt of 20 million , overdraft facilities and were punting millions of pounds worth of STs to Ticketus.

I do not see a problem with this statement. I have saw a lot worse.

As he said let's see what Mr Wallace's 120 day review brings?

He's suggesting renewals are out early (untrue). He's saying that there isn't enough time to digest the 120 day plan if its out next week (pish). He still seems to believe fans will get season tickets without giving the club money (deluded). Other than all the main points of what he said its all perfectly reasonable!

Which is a fair enough but you can rest assured that no matter what the review says, he will put a completely negative spin on it

Correct mate. The ring pieces cant be seen to lose face. I wonder how much ST money will be diverted to their mates businesses to run and finance this proposed scheme? Will organgrinder Dingwall be participating in the scheme?

No point giving unnecessary hits, load of pish anyhow, here you go.

RANGERS fans could bring forward plans to set up a season ticket trust fund after prices for the 2014/15 campaign were revealed yesterday.

The Light Blues have sent out letters to more than 30,000 supporters to renew their season books for next year as Ally McCoist's side look to make it three-in-a-row and clinch their return to the SPFL Premiership.

But doubt remains over how many fans will give their cash to the club this time around after months of wrangling between the boardroom and the terraces.

The Rangers Union of Fans have backed a plan by former Gers director Dave King that would see money placed in a trust and only given to the club when assurances have been given by the under-fire board, with a proposal to ring-fence Ibrox and Murray Park knocked back earlier this month.

Chief executive Graham Wallace has yet to reveal the details of his 120-day review and Union of Fans spokesman Chris Graham told SportTimes: "We stated that we would give the board time to put the review out, in line with what Dave King said.

"We will now have to discuss how we move forward based on the fact that the board have put the renewals out ahead of the review and whether we have to take action ahead of that review.

"We have been working on the Season Ticket Trust in the background but took the position that we would give the board the chance to put forward their plans.

"The renewals coming out before the review means we will need to decide over the next couple of days how we proceed and whether we need to bring that forward.

"The idea of securing Ibrox and Murray Park is something we are very focused on and feel it is an important thing to do.

"This move by the board doesn't give people confidence in terms of the financial position and we would like to secure the club's two most important assets. It is still something we want to do.

"But it is hard to make any informed decisions until we see the review, which is why the renewals coming out at this time seems very odd."

After selling around 72,000 season tickets for the Third Division and League One campaigns, Rangers have made an early push for punters' cash as fans continue to worry about the financial picture at Ibrox.

Some supporters will see the cost of their briefs rise by 25%, but Graham admits it is the timing that will concern the Light Blue legions.

He said: "With the renewal date being May 6, assuming the review is out next week, it doesn't give people much time to digest it and make a decision. It all appears to be very rushed and that obviously leads to speculation as to why the board are trying to get the money in so early.

"I don't think there is a great surprise there is a price increase or that it is that much of an issue. Prices were always going to have to go back up prior to getting back into the top league so there wasn't a huge jump from one season to the next.

"The way it has been rushed out and the renewal deadline coming so soon is disappointing."

The words of dave,....

How advanced are the plans over a trust for season ticket money?

"I have not been involved in those plans. All I have said to them [the fans' groups] is that, while I think it is a very, very big ask to say to Rangers fans 'please withhold your season ticket money', it may become necessary. But other than that I have not been involved whatsoever".

Perhaps the union of fools will roll out the RFFF template, so successful in the past. :rolleyes:

Ok - unelected fans "spokesman"

That better?

Not really, so far as I can tell he speaks for an organisation, union of fans or something like that. I think that's what the article says but I did get bored reading it.

Am I wrong to presume he only speaks for fans in his group?

Does anybody know how many members it has?
