140.000 strips on way from Thailand, due this week, even Hummel no idea how we can sell or when, Ashley refused to give past sales info, so just a guess on quantity.

Agree0 Disagree20

The Mike Ashley wants to do one! Wee fat person!

11 Aug 2018 20:13:31
It’s been said before we have a real problem with Ashley as I have a feeling he is holding us to ransom on the shirts and he won’t let us sell them unless we agree to his terms! 😭😡🇬🇧.

11 Aug 2018 20:27:56
Take him to court again for that’s what I say. and if we win it could be bye bye fatty. must fall into restraint of trade category. must.

11 Aug 2018 21:08:09
Don't understand disagree, but heh, anyway we haven't a stockpile yet, and aren't available yet, due to the late award of contract. Told would be available on line from Hummel, don't know how that would work.

11 Aug 2018 21:28:31
Does anyone have any genuine info on when we can get our hands on the new strips the lack of information on it is really frustrating.

11 Aug 2018 21:43:41
Surely there will be a time constraint for his bid. He can’t just not bid therefore stopping all the strip sales.
I think JDs bid has to be matched or bettered, it’s only at that point Rangers decide who to go with!
Even if SD match the bid it doesn’t necessarily mean they will win the retail contracts.

I could be wrong but that’s what I’ve heard, please correct me if anyone knows better.

I hate that fat greedy barstool I hope some one kicks his lady parts down an alley!

I don't know why companies like House of Fraser would allow him to bail them out A good company that has been tarnished and will never be the same Anything that arseh**e gets his hands on have gone to put!

A bit like the football club Newcastle Utd they have been a dying club under his stewardship! Suffocating them and the fans not only continue to go the the games and feed that erse but also buy new shirts Why? He doesn't exactly fund the Club well

Gone are the days where Newcastle broke the record transfer fee for a player on three separate occasions:

Faustino Aprilla, Alan Shearer and Michael Owen

The plot thickens

Total joke of a club these days!

{Ed0333's Note - I’m not sure I should let this post slide but you have a point so I’ll edit the rude bits.

Win? The old owners fu@ked us for money not Ashley. White and co bought us to liquidate us and sell us off. they are the criminals. They should be in jail. Boil my blood the c@#ts.

11 Aug 2018 22:30:26
Yately1, Ashley can't dictate terms, however it seems whatever deal we have with our new distributor we have to give him the opportunity to match it, that's why we lost the court case and have to pick up his lawyers bill, it's still a real mess as we've given him 3 million to get out of old deal, these are not rumours, these are facts ( sadly )

11 Aug 2018 22:48:52
Listen, previous regimes agreed to bring in Ashley and sports direct, the current board came to a deal with sports direct to end deal early under the conditions that they got a chance of sales and distribution of new kit, the board in there wisdom decided to try n cut them out and cost the club over £500000, who’s to blame for this, the current rangers board, these are facts not rumours or hear say but facts.

11 Aug 2018 23:36:23
Cant believe we still have folk on here having a go at the board and dave king. We've come a long way and this is just another wee hurdle we'll have to jump. All in good time peeps.

11 Aug 2018 23:39:25
Southend Rangers - Ashley hasn't shafted Rangers? Are you having a laugh. Explain why we can’t buy strips now or why we made 5p in every pound SD made.

Stevie 198! So you were part of the negotiations with SD? You know the complex legal arguments the current board have had with the fat man?

What a load of rubbish. How can anyone stick up for Sports Direct or Ashley. The current board have done everything to get this piece of rubbish away from our club. They wanted DK jailed last year.

11 Aug 2018 23:47:00
I’m not interested in who’s to blame we’ve all been over it so many times DK haters DM haters CW&CG used us and abused us escorted money from us then sold that deal to MA&SD set us back a decade and all the while the sfa and there fit and proper panel let it all happen.

{Ed0333's Note - can someone fill me in on what’s going on here? Last time I checked on Scottish football Graeme souness was Rangers manager.

11 Aug 2018 23:49:49
Loyalist, I respect your opinion but are you telling me Ashley is not calling the shots when we can’t release our strips to the fans? There is something going wrong here and King has to tell the troops🇬🇧😭.

12 Aug 2018 00:29:58
Ashley is a rat.

12 Aug 2018 07:29:21
You're right yately1.Something has gone wrong and the board or more personally stewart robertson (the invisible man), has to correspond with us the lifeblood supporters, by telling us some news regarding when we are likely to be able to buy our new hummel kits! What must hummel be thinking of this mess, they're now embroiled in? We don't and i know they can't tell us all the ins and outs, due to legalities, but they can surely break their silence, as they told us transparency was everything,
but giving out some sort of statement, regarding this shambles!

12 Aug 2018 07:38:25
Yately . how does king have to tell the troops. We have to box clever here and the way king came out and announced we had littke money for transfers (rather than the 39 mil people were expecting ) was a master stroke. and kept the vultures at bay. I beleive he is playing the same waiting game with fatty and it’s just a process we have to go through to get rid . Pointless showing our hand to the fat one . He is presently scrabbling aboutbtryingbto find out a bid that he can match because the court ruled in our favour that it couldn’t be disclosed. That must have dented his evil plan and he is sitting now trying to infuriate to find out. We need to be strong this time and trust the chairman . KIng and co has done a wonderful job to date getting the fat one out the board room . this is step two . Be patient my friend we are on the rise again no question.

12 Aug 2018 08:25:21
Fair play Mols and Coop, we just want the best for the club and we are certainly on the up. Can’t wait for today and enjoy! 😀🇬🇧.

12 Aug 2018 08:35:14
Yeah, let’s tell the fans all of the complexities of the current stand off!

There will be confidentiality clauses galore in the contracts, we will have legal arguments that only our lawyers and board should be privy to but in general, businesses do not do their dirty laundry in public.

Let the board do their job - they will ensure that we get the best outcome possible given the circumstances and we will be told what the situation is when it is resolved.

It’s the real world out there boys and even Rangers have to live in it and abide by the rules!

12 Aug 2018 09:42:00
Ashley is undoubtedly a fat prick. BUT the current board and especially dodgy Dave do have questions to answer. 2 weeks into the season we still can't buy strips! Why go to court if its written in a contract that SD got to match any merchandise deal? What's happened to the share issue? Am pretty sure we can't have a share issue until dodgy Dave offers to buy everyone's shares (another court case) . On the park things are looking good, been impressed by SG and his signings. Off the park? Crazy as f*ck!

12 Aug 2018 12:48:13
Listen dangleberry it’s Dave King that’s made it happen so I for one will show the man a bit of respect instead of “ want usevthe word dogey “ some dogey post from a dogey supporter. King and the board work fir and have worked fir nothing my dogey friend since day one to try and get this club back on an even keel and you are moaning sbout strips ha unbelievable.

12 Aug 2018 13:18:27
Well said MOLS couldn’t agree more
Its all negativity with some people.

12 Aug 2018 13:48:18
We've been crying out for our club to conduct our business behind closed doors since the end of the Murray era. Now we're doing it and some are calling for "transparency" give it a rest, when there is something to announce you'll hear about it.

13 Aug 2018 10:23:25
Ashley is the one holding this up, he won the court case so now he either has to match the bid from JD or whoever or let us go. If he matches the bid then I believe we have to stay with SD as our retail partner, the only way we can move would be if he refused to match another offer. Jist of it is, he won the court case what, 2 weeks ago now? So he is stalling on making an offer for whatever reason he has.

All of the above regarding the contract with SD and its permutations are just hear say because no one outside of either board (RFC and SD) knows what the deal actually stated and Ashley will have confidentiality clauses all over any current/ new contract so the RFC board will never be able to tell us anything without being in breach of contract and costing us more money in a court room.

End of the day, we will be looking at a better kit deal in terms of how much we make from every shirt. Unfortunately that may mean we have to continue business with Ashley but our board must ensure there is nothing in the new contract that will leave us with Ashley bending us over a barrel, like a 7 year notice to leave.
