Some Rangers fans, while rightfully basking in the sunshine of the flying start their team has made to their second tier campaign, have also been casting a cautious eye on off-field events.
You have to wonder what this mob's particular endgame is? Are they so blind that they cannot see that a potential repeat of the fall of their old club could be on the cards?
Or is wanting full marble-staircase platinum cards with tie and blazer included, their ulterior motive?
Whatever, a wake-up call must be heeded lest pressing the snooze button for an extra five minutes kip could see Rome burn while they sleep.
Because the Holding Company Vehicle (sic) that Dave King, who in 1976 showed solidarity with his fellow man left Scotland to take the Apartheid rand of South Africa, owns is not running with a light tank of petrol.
It is running on fumes.
King's reign over Ibrox since the great March putsch has been given an extraordinary amount of grace and leeway by the official scrutinisers.
Nothing wrong with that. While myself and others have been sceptical from the start, there is an argument that someone should be given a window of opportunity to prove themselves.
Wipe the slate clean.
Demonstrate in the here and now what you can do.
Leave the criminal convictions (all 41 of them) and various contradictory statements made by you in the past.
Over to you Dave.... prove the cynical bloggers wrong.
Unfortunately, it seems the sceptics had been onto something in the first place. Because those who gave King some time are showing signs of losing patience.
Like finding out the last-ever owner of Rangers 1872-2012 had gone from being a billionaire to trying to strike a funding deal with Ticketus, it appears that unfulfilled promises of big investment from King have not gone down well.
While King sits in his palatial home in the Transvaal admiring his 30,000 plus bottles of vintage wine, his 'tweede luitenant' Paul Murray has been scouring the globe looking for 'guid honest Rangers men' to provide investment in the form of 'soft loans'.
North America has been tapped and while ears were receptive to Murray's plea, it is understood that no one was willing to whip out the chequebook and leave a deposit in Paul's paper cup.
With wages to pay, stadium repairs to perform and PR company bills to pay, cash is needed - especially as the key to Dave King's 'north of £20million' warchest appears to have gone missing.
Lest we forget the big elephant in the room - and he has been mentioned once or twice on this site before.
Remember King's bluster last March about how he was going to make the Ashley problem go away?
Renegotiate the loan?
Drive him out of Ibrox once and for all?
Challenge him like he's 'never been challenged before'?
It hasn't happened. King has been heard by Ashley's people and like Murray and his paper cup, he's come back empty-handed.
He doesn't have to.
Even without the court cases taking place involving the last Holding Club Vehicle FC (RIP) Craig Whyte and Rangers 2012 FC founding member, the gallant pioneer that was Charles Green, Ashley would still be waiting.
After all, this guy is a genuine billionaire with wealth off the radar - he can afford to sit back and let the Boer usurper hoist himself by his own petard.
But at some point, Mr Ashley will be round to say "fun's over lads, now where's my money?"
Which will be tricky because by December, others will be wanting their cash back too.
As King's new acquisition revealed on its own website.
That warchest which King bragged about needs opening soon.
However, he boasted about a lot of things back then:
King and the Anthill Mob of the world famous Albion Road carpark said they would apply to join an alternative share marked, ISDX, which would be rubber-stamped very soon.
Months later, we're still waiting for that Earth-shattering event to happen.
You can see why some fans are getting a bit nervous.
The previous incarnation were top of the Premier Division when it began to disintegrate from within.
This club is on course to being promoted into the top flight for the first time in its history.
Yet once again, off-field events are conspiring to ruin the fine work done on the pitch.
No doubt a sub-culture of the new club support will rant and launch smears towards messengers who point out that certain financial issues need to be resolved very quickly.
Indeed some volk have recently been making Eugène Terre'Blanche look like a boy scout such has been the wild-eyed tirades that have been launched towards the messengers of bad, but vital, news.
But they insulted, abused and smeared when their old club ran into trouble and look what happened - it died and the cry was "why didn't anybody tell us?"
Weapons-grade stupidity from these 'fan groups' if ever you saw it.
You're being told again and unless your 'Eerste Minister van Newco', one David Cunningham King, can put his money where his wine-cellar is, history could well repeat itself.
Because standing idly by in 2011/12 allowed Rangers to die.
And that's something you should not forget.
