Rangers File Counter Claim against SDI

Route 55

All of this is looking very promising. All the arguments we are putting forward look very hard to pick apart. Ashley is going to have to come up with something special.
Fucking hate that fat rancid cancerous bastard Ashley, using our club the way he has in his little millionaire spats.
No surrender mr King.

And you have so called left wing socialists that are cheering him on. The man is a horrible employer of the working classes who wouldn't be out of place in a Dickens story.
And the MP for the constituency where SDIs HQ is located is the so called “Beast of Balsover” who just lets this modern slavery carry on for a few free lunches.

Without knowing the first thing about the various laws involved in this debacle, I genuinely can't think how SD have a leg to stand on here given that they're trying to push through an agreement with another party who is openly hostile and a customer base who wouldn't be interested in buying from them. What possible reason could they have for doing this other than bad faith?

I haven’t read the op or most of the rest of the thread but I’m very sceptical about anything to do with Ashley, so can someone clear a couple of things up for me?

1) how has this latest news came to light

2) why would DK allow anything that is likely to help our cause to be leaked on the internet

Sorry if it’s all been explained in the thread already!

These are the publicly available court documents submitted to the court ahead of our next round of battles.

1. Rangers lodged the appeal yesterday it looks like
2. Anyone can access the documents - they’re on a public source. It’s not a case of leaking.

Nope just do his fucking job he's employed for.

Look after his constituents, rather than ride the gravy train. Honestly every fucking single politician should be offered minimum wage, watch the thieving bastards jump ship one after the other.

The only reason they are doing that job is for the money and expenses. they couldn't give 2 fucks about their costituents at all.

The lords, Mp's, Msp's give them minimum wage then watch how much they care about their policies and constituents.

Wullie Rennie the Lib Dem bellend over here got in power with pledges to do this that and the next thing. First year in power?

Highest expenses in Scotland, claimed nearly £23k alone in expenses.

MSPs claim more than £16m in expenses for first time

Of the five party leaders, Lib Dem Willie Rennie claimed the most in expenses, with the North East Fife MSP billing the Parliament for £22,710.95 over 2017-18.

Next was Patrick Harvie of the Scottish Greens, with the Glasgow MSP claiming £20,089.14, followed by SNP leader Nicola Sturgeon, who claimed £13,005.47 in expenses for her role as MSP for Glasgow Southside.

Scottish Conservative leader and Edinburgh Central MSP Ruth Davidson claimed a total of £10,738.65 over the year, while Richard Leonard – who was elected Labour leader in November 2017 – claimed £9,003.88 as a Central Scotland MSP.

Ken Macintosh, who is the Scottish Parliament’s Presiding Officer, claimed £18,155.29 in 2017-18 for his work as an MSP for the West of Scotland region.

WTF! Patrick Harvie claims over 20K in expenses. What does the little weasel do? What kind of carbon footprint does his expenses equate to?
We'll be left wondering. None of the useless Scottish media will be investigating. That's for certain.

Their salaries are bad enough but, I’m led to believe their pensions are solid gold.

Ashley’s billions might not be cash in the bank.
Of course, King’s money may well be tied up in South Africa!
Most billionaires are paper billionaires where most of their wealth is tied up in company's and shares, this is part of how their wealth is calculated, the wealthiest person on the planet is the guy who owns Amazon, most of which is valuations of company worth.

By your definition Newcastle should be one of the best teams in the world.
What's that got to do with what I said ? The people who own Man city are far far wealthier than Ashley and put hundreds of millions more into Man city than Ashley has into Newcastle, Liverpool have spent far less than Man city and Liverpool are current European champions and sit at the top of the English premiership, moral of the story and answering your question,quite clearly money doesn't buy you success.

Ken McIntosh is a fenian bastard. Him and his pal Murphy.

Can’t believe he claimed £18k in expenses and gets a £108k salary!

I’m greatly encouraged by the simple fact that 113 posts in we haven’t had anyone tells us what %^*& up the board have made of this which suggests to me the tide in this case is turning

The thing with King is no one really knows how much money he has or doesn't have.

Without him we x would be dead and buried now with Ashley pushing everything

For that we should be eternally grateful.

Rumours for years have been the amount of money he has invested in trusts and other business outside SA is similar wealth to Ashley partly why South Africa watch him very closely now

I dunno if it was just reading in to things based on the AGM but if King is really needing to attend to his business in SA as he described, my thinking was that he feels there's a reasonable short time before a conclusion is reached with SDi or he wouldn't have agreed to stay on in that role.

I think there was a comment along the lines of "we thought we'd reached an agreement at one stage" too which suggests things are getting there (allowing for Ashley being a duplicitous lady's front bottom)

Hopefully it's concluded before too long.
This is my view also - here's hoping. DK is a match for anyone.

I would love it if it came out Dave could buy and sell MA in a heartbeat.

Man City and Barcelona aren't current European champions.
Are you seriously suggesting they're not amongst the best teams on the planet?
I note you completely avoided the fact that City currently hold all 3 major trophies and are the only side ever to win an English treble.

For as much as I'd like to be as wealthy as King, I'd take fatmans wealth over DK's ;)o_O:)
For some reason its actually very difficult to find out what King's net worth is. Not that i'm overly bothered, the job he has done in restoring our to club to where it is now is beyond reproach.

If i had to take an utter guess i would suggest that Jabba the village has wealth well in excess of Kings, bear in mind though Ashleys wealth is paper wealth (as is most incredibly rich peoples) its all linked to the SDI share price.

Not sure what's new in all of that as it largely reads like what we've argued previously without any great success, but presumably something is different about it.

Doesn't strike me as big news or particularly positive or negative. Just procedural.

While the argument we wouldn't have bought from SDI flies for us as fans, and is fairly rock solid in our minds, I'm pretty sure it doesn't carry the same weight in the courts and has been discussed before. It's ultimately largely speculative from their POV.

Common sense would dictate that fans wouldnt buy from SDI, seemingly common sense is now a thing in the legal world...
