Brace your self for Newco in the SPL at your expense

As celebrations are in full swing not only within the Celtic support but supporters of other SPL supports we may all be left feeling a bit deflated as we stand by helpless and watch SPL clubs vote RFC Newco into the SPL.
Paul Brennan of CQN  who has been along with some others at the forefront of getting the truth out about RFC has today warned of the carrot that could ensure that an rfc Newco drop straight into the SPL . A offer to vote in favour of a share of gate receipts at future SPL fixtures.
This will certainly ensure that the ‘gang of 10’ will vote to transfer the shares from the deceased RFC to Servco 5088 the company set up by Charles Green which will buy the carcase of RFC 1872 for £5.5m.
Call me a pessimist but I can’t see these clubs knocking back the chance to take half the gate money when they play Celtic at Celtic park. Celtic will become isolated in this instance unable to vote down such a proposal. Many of these clubs will receive more money for 4 trips to Glasgow per season than they will from the lousy TV deal which exists.
Now this may fail or the proposal may not make the table but I doubt it.
Four years ago I stopped going to SPL away games as I see these clubs as bloodsuckers who live off the back of the large Celtic and to be fair RFC support. This season for the first time in 25 yrs I am not in a position to renew my season ticket. If this goes ahead and we have the combination of a share of gate receipts and a Newco is parachuted into the SPL then I wont feel so bad.
I intend to subscribe to Celtic TV’s premium package and buy my Celtic merchandise straight from Celtic. At least that way I know my money is going straight to Celtic and not the rest of the SPL.
I was hoping to include some quotes from Paul’s article today but at the time of writing it looks as though CQN is suffering from server overload.

  1. As someone said on another Blog…its a JFK day today. Of course they are currently scurrying around in their underground tunnels trying to get to the light. But unfortunately for these rats the light will give them no relief.
    They have no idea how determined a creditor HMRC are. This a monster of an entity which only wants one thing the country’s money and they know that there are assets which can be realised to the creditor’s benefit.
    I predict that Green’s Gin Palace will never open its doors.
    As for clubs getting their hands on our gate money…so what…this is the price of lancing a boil which has been growing in our history for far too long.
    Lets look at the ‘what ifs’:
    What if…A Newco gets voted in. It will be a wounded club from the start with no financial clout. Fines…restrictions…loss of players they cannot afford to pay….an oaf for a manager….no Europe for 3 years [at least..remeber UEFA aint done yet]…loss of gate money. Most importantly forever [well in my lifetime] ridiculed by all and scorned by any player worth his salt whom they choose to approach.
    What if…BDO do unearth dirty deeds at Tesco Park…then we are talking about the potential bankruptcy of ALL directors of the former Rangers Football Club as HMRC and other creditors pursue legal action against them all.
    Oh my word…what carnage…and it will be from the top of the SFA too. Jeez these guys must be bricking it tonight.
