Rangers £21m not £2.1m???? How the fuck were they allowed to rack £21m of debt up with HMRC that’s mind blowing 

Employee Benefit Trusts, for which HMRC eventually caught up

Erm no. As stated many times. There are proper legit clubs all the way down the pyramid. You don't simply get parachuted in. Colls are 8th tier, top of. Teams at level 9 are competing for promotion, proper budgets. There's no space at level 10 any more which is where FC United popped up. Level 11 which is West Lancs League. Even then, Chew Moor Brook have more right to that spot as top of level 12 table. Maybe level 13 with Horwich St Mary's.

It's arrogant to expect any kind of special treatment over and above well run clubs.

It’ll be reet.

People have too much money to lose for us to go bump. Someone will snap us up when there’s no more time to negotiate.

We’ll head in to league one with a new owner and Nobby Nolan leading us to glory!

sorry, I didn't mean to sound arrogant- I know I was vague, but I meant that everything was in place up to around this point... NewBWFC aren't just gonna come along and be in the conference

I didn't mean you, I meant in general, people thinking we'll just drop into a league with Chorley or whoever.

a lot of folk seem to have this romantic idealism that a phoenix will rise from the ashes, be made up of local lads in pristine white shirts, play dazzling football and bask in glorious sun...

far, far from it

I think if Scotland wasn't such a one horsed race, Rangers II would still be playing Stranraer

With the amount of infighting and arguing over every last detail? It'd take till about 2030 to start.

Happy with that, probably when brexit has died down as well

Folk will believe Howard or they won't

He all but predicted this latest development

And if you now look back through his posts, you'll probably find some speculation but he's on the money far more times than anybody else

Read that when they were in the third division they still had the second highest wage bill in Scotland

And there are more than a couple of occasions where he has highlighted the ‘other’ buyer, dealing directly with Moonshift.

I’m reading that as “Basran might be the name in the press but there’s a more genuine bid that’s going under the radar (Stelios?) and waiting in the wings.”

Apologies if I’ve completely misread your comments Howard.

They also had recognised international footballers TUPEd across. Clayton's upset there's no crisps and he has to wear his big brother's boots. Any correlation between our potential destiny and Rangers end with the number of lost pissed up loyalists.

That’s fine. But you’re from a position of knowing who he is Casino, through a PM.

Until I know further, regarding his background and motives, I’ll reserve judgement

Understood them entirely, remember, money talks whereas wealth whispers

Genuine question, would clubs want a new bwfc rattling around with them?

Potential for a new club to rip up lower leagues and distort natural progression of other teams.

Would they actually be happy to be away from the potential hassle of hosting an unknown quantity, that could result from a comparative Goliath coming to town.
