A Sanity Clause for Xmas?
I note the following from the world’s greatest sports reporter.

“KJ: But Scottish football is not in a good financial place right now. There must have been other more obvious options?”

Is it not the case that Scottish Football has not been in a such healthy financial state for decades.

One has to agree that if you are looking to throw borrowed money at the game to achieve success and try and compete with the likes of the EPL, La Liga, Bundeliga then we are way way behind. However is that ambition actually healthy in itself?

When considering a country of 5.3 million people and the manner in which the game has changed over the last thirty years that should not be our aim.

Our aim simply should be to develop the best local grass roots talent available and if and when they break into the professional ranks they can get a sound footing in an SPFL that is known for playing exciting, intelligent & modern football and when teams play in Europe the opposition (regardless of the size of club) know they will have to be on their toes to beat one of our teams.

For those with the talent and ambition then they can head off elsewhere to further their career, make big time money and hopefully put on the dark blue jersey of their county.

If teams like Hamilton Accies can achieve what they have done on a relative shoe string then anything is possible with the right approach, a bit of innovation and getting rid of the Doom Mongers and Armageddonites who can’t see the wood for the trees.

King’s Statement

“Additionally, I will have to deal with my reasons for staying on the board and trying to impose some level of governance during the Whyte era.”

And remind us how that turned out? It would appear that trying to run or influence a plc operation from the other side of the planet is not a strong suit.

Yet another reason for the current board to tell him to sling his hook.

Serious question. Why would the majority of hard working directors and chairpersons of other clubs want this guy anywhere near the game.

When will fans realise that those ‘inside’ football these days have very little or nothing in common with the fans who help pay their wages be that through supporting teams or buying and watching the media.

Regardless of whether a legend or not these guys very rarely see things from the fans point of view.

For that we are left with the likes Jim Spence, Cowan & Cosgrove and the occasional contribution from the odd enlightened journo from time to time.

Otherwise why do you think web bampottery and the blogosphere is so well attended!!

Indeed. And that was my other thought.
Even if Mark Allen does a good job T”Rangers wouldn’t see any cash for any upcoming talent (internal or bought in)  for a god number of years.
To date a good few lads showing talent have been allowed to leave to keep the lights on.
At present the only prospect they have is McRorie who I think has stepped up and performed well when asked.He certainly has confidence and could develop into a decent centre back playing with the likes of Souttar for Scotland.

I am sure the thought will have crossed other’s minds but will say it anyway.
Celtics ‘free money’ from the VVD  transfer is more than T’Rangers stated  loan requirements to keep the lights on for the next year or two.
Thats the size of the gap between Celtic and the rest of us.

Thought that may be the case but was wondering if someone would be trying to get ahead of the game.
