Good Afternoon,

I wonder how many Glaswegians and others ever dropped in to a basement licensend premises in Glasgow’s Renfield street called…….. “Fouquet’s”? (my edit)


BRTH…as one of many of your many admirers on this blog, may I commend your research as exemplary…would that the MSM devote a millisecond to such detail, dare I say there would be no need for this site/blog…nor would TSFM be necessary.

Mille de chapeaux monsieur!

‘.Tomorrow is our wedding anniversary …’

May it be as significant and joyful to you and the Mrs as the wedding day itself was.


JC…thank you indeed for such a touching sentiment.

My friend, at my very sedate stag night said with the utmost wisdom :” it is not the getting married that is difficult…it is the being and staying married that is difficult.”

OT but thank you.

About the The Scottish Football Monitor
The main “raison d’etre” of the States of Jersey and its “financial vehicles”, is that being a tax haven, or more accurately a secrecy jurisdiction, allows mainland based companies, like MIH, to set up covert and secretive trusts, shielded by Jersey law, which cannot be forced to disclose information, just as under the Swiss banking laws of confidentiality.

Murray, and his “professional” advisors, knew exactly what they wanted to do from day one.

The fact that they could do so is aided and abetted by the UK Government, and in particular, the City of London.

On your blagging rights, can I suggest a good QC? ( see my post of 15.08 this afternoon) broken heart


JC (ok I will stop!!!), you are defaulting to type here…acting as the “barrack room lawyer” as that miscreant poster described you the other day…

Then again, you have probably spent far too much time in the courts over the years on behalf of the site…laugh

There was a poster under the name ‘ Essexbeancounter’ who never let anyone forget that fact,jimbo, always referring to John Clark(e).

I do hope he is alive and well and looking in occasionally.


He is indeed alive and well and looking in constantly JC(e)…many thanks for your kind thoughts…especially after all these years…how many did you say…?…Eight?
I would remind all bloggers that I still have blagging rights to the John Clark(e) moniker from all those years ago…devil

Nice to see Hoopy and NR Cat1 re-appearing and posting…is this a harbinger of some cataclysmic or administration event?

We’re Gonny Need Another Baw.
Just logged on to state that "earlier reports of my death" have been greatly exaggerated…I have been lurking in deepest Essex and  not missed a single blog or post, especially from my old literary mentor John Clarke(e) and fellow "beancounter" StevieBC…and all the other regular posters/suspects.

My day has been marked with the announcement of the death of that TRUE sports writer and PROPER journalist Hugh McIlvanney…RIP

His piece in The Observer on the death of Jock Stein moved me to tears, and not just because I had paid £3 for a hard copy of the paper in Menorca…I would love to find that article again…

StevieBCDecember 22, 2017 at 18:29Guess that the CoS result could /should trigger a couple of events in the short-term;– King resigns from RIFC & – the auditors Campbell Dallas ‘do walking away’ ?You would think…?  +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++Their reputation is on the line. I would think ICAS practice regulation are keeping a close watch on this one._______________________________________________________
ICAS Practice Regulation only get upset when recalcitrant, (no, not “concomitant”) members, like me, fail to return meaningless checklists or forms in time.
Please believe me…I have “got form” in this area…. 01
Only when a serious complaint from “members of the public” is received, would any notice be taken…and minimum action result…
Please remember, that ICAS members, at least 20 in number, have been involved in this whole RFC/MIH/TRFC/TRIFC omnishambles over the last 20 years or so….and….yup…a big fat zilch from the “public”…
I rest my case….

“….(the phrase I had used was taken from a description of Falstaff in ‘Henry IV’ ( apologies, Essex, for a the reference to Shakespoke. Nice to have you back, btw!)…”
Good morning JC(e)…I was wondering when you would resurrect my old “bete-noire” Shakingspeare…19
Delighted to see that you are all the others are still banging away at the shame that masquerades as governance in Scottish football…
