Over my dead body will this site be dominated by talk of the team in blue who happen to play out of Ibrox.
However, and I beg your understanding when it does happen, sometimes needs simply must.
Accounts published at tea time on a Friday generally do not deliver good news. Wednesday is day for that, dominate the rest of the week.
A Friday night release screams ‘nothing to see here, ahem’.
You will know by now they lost the guts of 15 million in one trading year, and that’s with shares being issued in lieu of debt.
Fifteen in one year for a team in Scottish football is an eye watering figure,, its the amount of total debt I might expect a club to carry, certainly not the figure of one years trading but here we are.
Almost daily Auldheid shows the patience of a saint in pursuing then updating the interested support of how ‘his baby’ is doing, yet here we are staring a new event in the face. Imagine more than one Res12 being needed ffs!
Imagine no longer, those figures scream ‘We need the league’ or more importantly the automatic Champions league spot and its accompanying riches. Something they are on target for.
That fact is out there now, and they do have enablers, just think back to 2012s honest mistakes for instance, or the different Covid standards shown recently.
And then we have Phils report they have struck a deal with the tax man.
Its happening again, right in front of us.
Our rule abiding, social taxes paying club is being pipped to the post by a debt laden entity. Again.
That’s the guts of a hundred mill the have lost to get here, Lord knows where they get it and I ain’t speculating in public.
So when Res12 originally didn’t capture the supports attention enough to make a big difference, pulling the same play again might just help open some eyes.
From afar it looks as if the support accepted a Sevco in the main because of the banter and the desire for a strong rivalry.
But asking them to accept the same again, now that would be quite an assumption.
Make no mistake that’s where we are headed, the same again. As mentioned there are deals being done to keep the wolf from the door.
‘Deals being done’.
That phrase should never ever have entered footballs vocabulary. A signed promise to adhere to the published rules of whatever given sport should be enough, when ‘deals’ start getting done you are in trouble.
What if every team who learnt of HMRC being keen to deal, stopped paying right now then asked to sit done and work something out?
They would be told where to go, prosecuted, and castigated by the fourth estate for their noncompliance.
Only one team can get away with this. Let’s not forget the then First Minister himself Alex stepped in to try and broker a truce between Hector and Stevies mob, and that tradition has just been repeated by wee Jimmie Krankie turning a blind eye not only to Covid parties ala second yellow card, but now one of her nations most well known companies playing fast and loose with Hector, again.
I don’t believe its true to state only one team could stop this, as Cowiebhoy started why aren’t Aberdeen and Hibs up in arms?
But I do believe its true if we got involved this would be easier to stop.
When I look down south I dont see deals being done. None of the big five leagues go down that route. ‘You want to play here are the rules’ seems to be the mantra elsewhere.
It’s ‘deals being done’ this time, Res12 last time, honest mistakes before that etc that stop me from bringing anyone into the fold. Great business eh.
It’s ‘deals being done’ that gets Scottish football scraps compared to elsewhere. If it can’t be a serious league it can’t demand serious money.
It’s ‘deals being done’ that will make folk decide the next generation are better off without this, and not introduce them.
It’s ‘deals being done’ that once upon a time we expected our own Club to get furious about and attempt to destroy the deal.making body from within. That was a dream.
It’s ‘deals being done’ that drives what few supporters the worst backwater league in Europe has away.
And when none of this is challenged by the leagues biggest club with its majority shareholder a very rich and powerful man, a man who is all about the money, then one simply must ask,,
Has a deal been done? Would it surprise you?
It’s transfers deals we should hear of, not social taxes deals.
This needs to end.
Enjoy the game.
COME ON YOU BHOYS IN GREEN!!!
