It seems we owe Dundee Hibs £100 thousand. Hope we stiff those bastards.
Be a shame to leave it unused.....
And you wonder why other fans might have a bit of a dislike for you?!
It's because we are the best in Scotland.
Nul points, perhaps phone a friend?
Of course, thats why only 17,000 turned up to last weeks cup game.
And shame fc have a full house every 2 weeks.
No but they have more than 17,000. Best fans in Scotland was your claim
Dont worry, when they go into administration you will be able to buy that "best fans in Scotland" title.
Im sure he stole it from some other club anyway.
I'm trying to get my head around a couple of things. Maybe someone can help me out.
The timing of the move to go into administration just seems weird. It's only a few weeks after we found out that Whyte mortgaged the season ticket income (for what was it? 24million?) and hot on the heels of the Jelavic transfer which I would hope was conducted on a "gies the money up front" basis.
I know Whyte had mentioned previously that there was a big gap between income and expenditure and it sounds like they had been fucking around a few creditors all season but surely they should have had the cash to cover short term expenses?
Then I saw this:
The bit about 2 minutes, 10 secs in is a little intriguing and maybe the full story will be out by tomorrow morning. But is he hinting that HMRC was about to move to replace Whyte as the prefered creditor?
For those that don't know. When Whyte took over the club he made sure that the 18million he put in to clear the LLoyds TSB debt made him the preferred creditor and therefore 1st in line to get his money back should the club go into bankruptcy. That made his takeover a win-win. Either they win the tax case and he owns the club having paid a quid and all he's done is made a simple loan to the club that he could pay himself back; Or they lose the tax case, he gets his 18mil back and gets the fuck out of dodge leaving someone else to pick up the pieces. It sounds like a good gamble doesn't it?
So is it the case that HRMC just scuppered his big plan and the creditors that he was talking about protecting today was really just himself? Does this administration protect his money while clearly just hanging the football team out to dry?
Just in case it's not clear, it's this part of the statement that I'm talking about:
So basically he's going to try to get his money back before HMRC can get their hands on the clubs assets?
Can't see him being safe to walk in public in Scotland let alone Glasgow if he tries that.
And what about those games where they never provided the attendance?
Christ mate, your club is in danger of going under, certainly going into admin and the guy at the top is, at the very least, manipulating it for his own advantage.
And you're arguing about whether Celtic had a few more thousand fans at a cup game?
Breaking just now -
HMRC is going to steam in today and not allow any more time!
Welcome to the blinkered world view of brother anchorage. No matter what Rangers do on the state they are in ra Sellick are much worser by the way so theys are.
Will I be able to keep my post count and will I have to change my name to anchorage2012 ?
Looks like a lot a companies will be getting stiffed as a result of your cheating. That's effectively what admin is about.
Happily football debts take priority so we should get this money. Even if we don't, this situation is massively more of a disaster for Rangers than Dundee Utd, so you hold onto these little comforts.
You have seen the light brother and are saved. Shame fc will always be worsererer and Rangers betterer cause it's true n'that. I wonder if all the titles shame fc won when they were fiddling the gate money and the young boys will be taken off them, tax is tax.
I will still wake up tomorrow a supporter of the most successful club in the world.
Hold onto that one too.
It's getting spicy over at the court of session!
Rangers FC"Most successfull club in the world*"1872-2012*awaiting recount secondary to league titles accumulated from financial doping
Ok, the count is in. That was an exhausting minute and a half.
So if Rangers have been cheating on their taxes for 10 years, that means there are 5 league titles that are null and void. Celtic would clearly then be awarded them, meaning that the league title count would then be Rangers 49 vs Celtic 47 which means that in 3 years we will then become the world's most successful club and still be watching our team playing football rather than gazing longingly at the Tesco's where our club's stadium used to be.
I guess we need to start planning another party in 3 years!
And we are still ahead of shame fc. We really are the greatest. WE ARE THE PEOPLE.
