This, of course, is all part of the Grand Plan dear reader.
Consequently, it is unnecessary for The People to fret about all of this merchandising stuff.
I’m sure it is a sure sign of a well-run football club that they are in dispute with their replica kit manufacturers and their retail partner.
It’s all in order as this excellent statement demonstrates.
This will be taken care of by a board of directors who have an amazing amount of hands on experience in this corporate stuff.
Of course, if the chaps in the Blue Room want out of the deal with Sports Direct, then they know how much that will cost their Holding Company Vehicle.
Indeed the details of that sum were broken on here last year.
Until then the notice period has still over six years to run.
There is, of course, a rather substantial invoice that is due to be served on the Holding Company Vehicle at Ibrox.
It is for all of that unsold stock from last year you understand.
Once more the specific quantum was revealed here.
It is in the region of £370,000.
Now I think it would be especially unfortunate if it were to arrive at the same time as a VAT demand for the Season Ticket sales.
Perhaps then the difference between ‘Gross’ and ‘Net’ will have some significance for one particular entrepreneur in the Blue Room.
Although this Puma story was a breathless ‘exclusive’ in the Daily Radar today you dear reader were already aware of what was coming down the pipe.
I’m happy to keep you informed with lamb free coverage apropos the ongoing calamities at the malformed creature created by Charles of Normandy in 2012.
Of course, I can only do so with your continued interest and support.
So, for the avoidance of doubt, any replica kit not sold this season will have to be bought, at full retail price plus a handling charge, by the Holding Company Vehicle at Ibrox.
Therefore, the ‘success’ of any proposed boycott of this merchandise by The People will only increase the bill that will be delivered to Sevco around this time next year.
So, big Sports Direct invoice for LAST year has yet to be sent to Ibrox.
I expect it will be soon.
The unsold kits THIS season will form part of a hefty invoice NEXT year.
If there is a Grand Plan I would wager that it wasn’t hatched in the Blue Room.
