Whereas calling yourself Blue and posting only pro-Rangers stuff makes you and your posts the paragon of impartiality? We all have our biases. I am man enough to acknowledge mine. By your choice of your name you are man enough to acknowledge yours. So having done that, why not take the arguments that are put forward and judge them on their own merit? My antipathy towards Rangers is, I feel unconnected to the question of whether or not the current company set up has anything to do with David Murray.
Your first sentence automatically labels everything else you post as the words of a bitter and twisted person venting their feelings on the only outlet that will still allow him to do so. 'Nuff said.

http://www.accountancyage.com/aa/news/2354744/hmrc-loses-rangers-ebt-appeal In March this year HMRC additionally lost the FURBS case in the supreme court. They will most likely lose this one too, the whole thing has been a waste of time,effort and tax payers money .... You watch too much TV through your anti Rangers specs FootyFan
I may well be better suited to footie boards - I have never tried to hide my antipathy towards all things Rangers and am enjoying their fans' discomfort. However - and this is not the old club/new club debate - there is no doubt that in 2012, the old company died and a new company was formed by a consrtium fronted by Charles Green with the stated objective of buying the assets of the old company and running a football team called Rangers. Whether or not you believe the club continued, the company clearly didn't. The new company could have structured itself to run on whatever business model it wanted. It could have opted for a "build slowly and consolidate" model; it could have opted for a "secure promotion using the minimum resources possible" model; but instead it went for the " spend big and you'll be big" model. It's not necessarily the wrong model - there were customers to be kept on board and arguably, the old team had been bigger than all the teams in its division bar one, so the claim that the best division was the one with Rangers in it was not as nonsensical as it might have first appeared. But, the problem was that the Consortium did not have the team/company’s best interests at heart. Theirs was not a fault of overweening ambition or building castles in the air. It was that they sought to bleed the company dry by raising money on flotations and through customer revenues, and taking off as much as possible into their own pockets through unnecessary and unconscionable contracts. By all accounts, the more successful the team or the business, the greater the bleed to these “investors”. I can’t see how David Murray’s stewardship of the old company was even remotely equivalent to the current regime. Murray borrowed beyond the company’s means in the effort of creating a European super-power; and then tried to avoid paying bills/taxes to keep the lights on. Charles Green’s lot just look like asset strippers. Oh, and I don't live in Glasgow.
I suspect that you are more suited to the footie boards up there. Your tedious oldco/ newco is beyond tedium. And you cannot follow a logic path. Have a cup of tea and a lie down, chap, this board is meant to he for investors. Not folks with a chip on their shoulder. I have an early start in the City so signing off. No doubt you have Glasgow welfare benefits to collect tomorrow.
RE: Being Prudent
David Murray has never been involved in this company. How can he be responsible for the mess it is in?
