tie them to the rails and let the train run over them.

I was more thinking about them getting pelted with rotten eggs, etc, as they walk south.

Well I suppose it would cover up the stench!

Moving on.

More than ever we need our board, and those of the other 10, to be bold and make sure they are holding firm and are not going to capitulate when they meet on Monday. Call it D Day if you like. Dundee or Dunfermline.

After the majority of the SFL clubs refused to be Donkeyaster and Reekin's patsies the SPL chairmen need to show the same resolve and make sure the hangover of the past few months is put firmly behind us.

Once again the Dons are first to put their heads above the parapet here asking their fans to get behind their team.

Our board should issue a statement, NOW, before any vote and assure those fans waivering that they are not and are steadfast and sure in their belief that their is life after the demise of the Glasgow giants.

I believe Milne has earnt the right to ask that question of his fellow supporters. Our current BoD including 10000 Hours might be too embarrassed and will no doubt be having their secret meetings to discuss what blah-blah bollox they're going to dump on fans next....and the punchline will be give us more money. Shull, I'll pay for 10000 Hours taxi back to ayrshire. Just go and pick them up.

Good news from Hampden is that BBC Scotland's Brian McLauchlin says that Dundee Utd chairman Steven Thompson and St Mirren chairman Stewart Gilmour have told him there is 'no chance' of Rangers being catapulted back into the SPL.

Interesting take on the whole saga here :

I think that it may well be time for Wee Eck to get off his arse and do something useful.

"Wee Eck", as you call him, has no mandate to interfere in footballing matters. If the executives of the SPL can't do the job properly, which is becoming clearer by the day to being the case, then that is the problem of the SPL. Donkeyasster should fall on his sword and a more effective replacement should be found who wouldn't sell Scotland's footballing crown jewels for a song with ridiculous get out clauses attached.

I`d have Adam Crozier , no nonsense approach , just a thought.

We, as a club, have benefited in a number of ways from having spoken out and making our position clear on a number of issues. Like other clubs, we were the subject of targeted circular letters from fans groups and other interested parties giving us their views on what was required to be done within Scottish Football. In addition, however, our clear stand struck a chord elsewhere: we suddenly found football fans both in this country and overseas, making tangible contributions in a variety of innovative ways. Players have been sponsored, our mascot too, donations have been made to the Club, strips purchased, season tickets purchased by fans of other clubs – simply to make a donation! Cheques have been sent to us, pledges made to attend games at Stark’s Park during the coming season……it has all been a bit overwhelming. We therefore look forward to welcoming all fans – supporters or otherwise – to Kirkcaldy this season.

Finally, the club and I have now received in excess of 400 letters and emails over the past few weeks. Whilst a real effort was made to respond individually – certainly at the beginning – the sheer volume of mail received has now rendered this pretty much impossible. So, therefore, let me thank everyone who took the trouble and interest to write and get in touch. Your support, financial and otherwise, has been inspiring.

Now THAT is how you do it! Pay attention, SG & BoD.

From the Scotsman:

THE Scottish Football Association has released a statement clarifying its position on Rangers following the acceptance of Charle’s Green’s newco into the Third Division.

The release confirms:

• The SFA has the power to transfer the one-year transfer embargo imposed on the now liquidated Rangers to the newco

• The governing body has requested further information from Sevco, the company which now owns Rangers, to satisfy the SFA’s fit and proper person test

When will the Scottish FA consider Rangers application for membership?

Now that the Scottish Football League have made a conditional acceptance of Rangers FC in Irn Bru Division Three we will now consider the club’s application for membership transfer this week.

How can Rangers be considered for membership when they can’t provide four years’ financial statements?

Sevco Scotland Ltd bought Rangers Football Club PLC’s share in the SPL and membership of the Scottish FA as part of their acquisition of assets. Under Article 14.1, Sevco Scotland are requesting the transfer of the existing membership of Oldco. This is different to an application for a new membership, which generally requires four years of financial statements.

When will the Appellate Tribunal be reconvened?

The Scottish FA has been in dialogue with Rangers FC in respect of the outstanding disciplinary sanction. The decision of the Court of Session to set aside the 12-month registration embargo was complicated by Rangers FC’s administration and subsequent request from Sevco Scotland for a transfer of membership of the Scottish FA. Again, now that the club’s status has been confirmed by the SPL and SFL, we will consider the award of transfer once Rangers FC satisfy the necessary criteria.

Will Rangers’ original punishments be transferred to Newco?

The Scottish FA Board has the power to transfer membership under Article 14.1, which states:

“. . . Transfer of membership will be reviewed by the Board, which will have the complete discretion to reject or to grant such application on such terms and conditions as the Board may think fit.”

Will Ally McCoist be subject to a Compliance Officer Reference for his comments about the Judicial Panel?

The Compliance Officer communicated with Rangers FC in mid-June to confirm that the matter has been reported and will be initiated through the normal Judicial Panel Protocol upon conclusion of the other outstanding issues affecting the club.

In what round will Rangers Newco join the William Hill Scottish Cup?

Under the Scottish FA’s Cup Competition Rules, Rangers FC as a third division club will join the William Hill Scottish Cup at the second round.

Why have the Scottish FA blocked the transfer of Rangers players to other clubs?

The Scottish FA issued a guidance note, based on legal advice and without prejudice, to both Rangers FC and PFA Scotland. Certain players have now chosen not to transfer across under TUPE regulations and, instead, agreed contracts elsewhere.

On a procedural basis, the Scottish FA cannot process an International Transfer Certificate via FIFA’s Transfer Management System where there is an ongoing contractual dispute.

Rangers FC have confirmed that there is such a contractual dispute. In the meantime, the new club(s) can request a temporary transfer from FIFA in order that the player(s) is free to play while the dispute process unfolds. This process has commenced in relation to a number of the players in question.

At the request of one of the parties in dispute, the Scottish FA, through its Articles, can convene an Arbitration Panel, with either side selecting from a list of Panel members, with the two appointees subsequently selecting a Chair of the panel. Rangers FC have made such a request to the Scottish FA.

We would naturally seek an outcome as soon as possible.

Does the Scottish FA have a fit and proper person report for the new Rangers owner(s) and do we know who the main investors/directors are?

The Scottish FA has received private and confidential documentation from Sevco Scotland Ltd relating to the above. We have asked Sevco to provide further supplementary information and will consider that information this week.

Under new Scottish FA rules, it is a requirement of the outgoing club directors to conduct a full investigation under the Fit and Proper Guidelines. Given Rangers FC’s insolvency event, it has been incumbent on the administrators, Duff and Phelps, to carry out the necessary checks on the proposed new directors, as well as our own investigations.

What is the status of the investigation into use of Employee Benefit Trusts?

This is an investigation under the jurisdiction of the Scottish Premier League specific to player registrations. The SPL have recently confirmed they have prima facie evidence but as the potential appellate body, we cannot comment further at this stage.

Heard Greene on the radio earlier saying that he felt he was being accepted as he has 'now managed to buy and live in his new house in Glasgow, after having to move from safe house to safe house' in fear of the blue vermin. He went on to say that he even 'managed to go out for a meal for the first time since May 13th.'

Is this guy listening to himself ? He obviously isn't fully aware of what he has bought into. Safe house to safe house, not able to be seen out in public. Scotlands shame just won't dissapear and Sevco really are stepping into the shoes of rangers.

Good news just round the corner for him though. Green is currently pursuing Duff and Phelps for a £500k refund he believes has been overdue to him since mid June, and now John Brown has managed to raise a whole £80,000* to buy the club off Green.

*Well he's put £40,000 of his own money in and he claims Barry Ferguson has promised to match him. Should be fun

Just to back this up - Clyde also released a press statement yesterday to thank fans from all over Scotland for their support

Welcome Support

Tue, 17th Jul 2012 10:52am

Following Friday's SFL Special General Meeting, and yesterday's statements by the SFA and SPL, there now appears to be some clarity emerging on the Newco situation.

The club believes that its stance on the issue has demonstrated the value of supporter owned clubs' governance and transparency.

As the saga developed during recent weeks, which were extremely challenging times for all clubs, Clyde FC was inundated with messages of support; both directly and through social media. These were a powerful reminder of the strength of feeling of the Scottish public towards the issue and the vast majority of them were read or monitored by club officials. It wasn't possible to respond to everything individually, but the club would like to take this opportunity to publicly offer thanks to everyone that communicated with us.

At certain times, the traffic to the club's official website was anything up to 20 times greater than the normal level.

The club is also somewhat surprised by, but extremely grateful for, the increased ownership applications, season ticket sales, requests for sponsorship and pledges of new support for The Bully Wee for the 2012-13 season. Ways that you can contribute to Clyde are listed here.

Thankfully, the football action is almost ready to begin and Clyde FC looks forward to a potentially exciting new season across Scotland's four leagues.

Leaked "news" in the daily ranger of sanctions for EBT transgressions,

http://www.dailyrecord.co.uk/news/scottish-news/2012/07/18/revealed-football-chiefs-secret-plan-to-strip-rangers-of-nine-trophies-over-ebt-tax-dodge-86908-23909684/

If the DR is now publishing acknowledgement of how naughty they have been, then the game's a bogey.

And STILL Green is trying to negotiate a place in Div 3 for ICBINR.

It was never a certainty in my mind and daily their chance is receding.

Interesting times. :)
