Expensive specifics

I think it is fair to say that Mr David Cunningham King is not too popular among the Sevco High Command today.

Yesterday morning there was a Churchillian conclave immediately before the AGM.

From that sit-down emerged an agreed script.

Essentially it was to be as ambiguous as possible in terms of finance, language and timescale.

Instead, Dave felt the need to make specific promises rather like the President in Bananas.

Of course, once the South African based convicted criminal was at the lectern the rest of the High Command were powerless.

The most specific item on the non-agreed shopping list was the re-development plans for Ibrox.

He also went seriously off-script apropos the manager.

The agreed scéal was that he was to say that they had indeed made a mistake with Pedro.

Consequently, they were going to take their time and get it right this time.

Instead, he got all specific again, including that the target might well be currently under contract.

Which, of course, means compensation.

Mr King also told the AGM that there would be funds available for the new manager.

However, this contradicts the accounts which stated that there would be no net spend on players in the year ahead.

Moreover, the statement that he made yesterday about negotiating a new retail deal had them chortling in Shirebrook.

All in all, it was another day where Mr David Cunningham King uttered cheques that other will have to cash in the real world.

    I wonder what Smotherwell will moan about today,hopefully;the result.

    Thanks for the update Phil.?HH

  2. Phil; this has been King’s MO all along. Agrees to something and then writes cheques with his mouth that the other directors have to pony up for. He knows that at last minute they’ll always stump up.

    The key question now is at what point they finally say “were out”!

  3. Nice reference to Bananas – one of my favourite films. In one scene the newly installed president receives his weight in horse manure from each of the local townspeople. There’s certainly tons of horse shit coming out of the stadium that John Brown played for. Oh aye, and it was definitely a stonewall pen v Motherwell. End of.

    1. Isn’t it strange that people have started calling a penalty a “pen”. I know what it is, it’s another bloody football cliche.

  4. Media have said more money for the new manager, more money to do up ‘ the stadium John brown played in’. Funny how not one of them will ask king and co the real question where is it coming from. Oh wait BFDJ has just back the media up ‘ they say rangers don’t have money but I can tell you it will be found to back the new manager’s – beware Timmy sevco are back .

  5. Does it really matter what he says Phil?

    No one in the media will pull him on any promise or statement that he makes.

    You can take that to the bank.

  6. Can your Rugger chap explain how Resolution 10/11 will work now that it has been passed ?
    Who will be the beneficiaries & likely losers in this 3 shell trick ?
