It is a well-worn adage that a sure fire way to amass a small fortune is to start with a big fortune and then invest in a football club.
That observation could have been made with the Holding Company Vehicle in mind.
Recently a senior member of the Sevco High Command was given some sobering news.
The chief financial fellow within his own company sat down with the Blue Room chap and then he gave it to him straight.
He told his boss that his “hobby” (his words) at Ibrox could no longer be funded from the resources of the company.
Moreover, he told the Sevco director that his own enterprise was “haemorrhaging clients” and that situation had to be addressed as a matter of urgency.
The Blue Room chap is now of the view that Mr David Cunningham King will never…ahem…overinvest to the extent that had been previously believed.
That realisation coupled with the news from his own company seems to have been a moment of epiphany for him.
I think this was the moment when the Penny Arcade dropped for this particular Sevco director.
It will come as no surprise to you dear reader that he is starting to favour the strategy that is currently being espoused by the peace faction within the Sevco High Command.
