Looking in today’s Dundee Courier it would appear that football Armageddon is still a little off…

“almost 3000 supporters travelled from the city of discovery to Kilmarnock …”
“a capacity 14200 crowd in tannadice in 11 days time, a remarkable attendance for a Sunday lunchtime fixture being broadcast live on TV…”
“…good news for the tangerines when their season ticket tally reached..4775, comfortably exceeding the number sold at the same time last year”

Looks as though the MSM will get a really bad crick in their collective necks looking out for the football apocalypse.

I was particularly taken with Billy’s statement that;
“I can see that there was maybe a small advantage for the club..”


he is either incredibly devious or incredibly stupid, I can’t quite decide.

I notice that sky and espn will be showing a combined total of 60 live Spl games plus 15 “rangers” games per season.
That should help put bums back on seats in our grounds don’t you think?

Small Price to Pay?

JohnJames is stating as a fact that the Dundee Utd players have been told that they are going into administration on Monday. I really hope that he’s got this one badly wrong

How can I put this – complete and utter pish – like most of his output

‘The Rangers’   I’ve often wondered how Charles Green got away with such a miniscule change to the name.  As I understood it, under the phoenix laws any new business arising from the ashes had to have a significantly different name so that it could not be seen to go into liquidation, shed the debt and start again unharmed, name intact

IIRC (and it is a while ago now) permission was sought (by CG) from and granted by the liquidators BDO.
Perhaps someone else who kept notes or has a better memory than me might confirm this?

The whole thing smacks of poetic justice you might say…

“Water, water, every where, And all the boards did shrink; Water, water, every where, Nor any drop to drink.”

Wrt Ranger’s reported desire to see strict liability brought in.

The cynic would suppose that they know the other clubs are dead set against it so it makes them look good while they know it’s never gonnae happen…

Even if it turns out that Phil is correct and the Scottish government will insist they’d still look better than the others and if it’s inevitable they’ve nothing to loose.

TBH I’m struggling to understand how it could be tacked onto ground licencing without local authorities rather than the SFA becoming responsible for enforcement and sanctions which I truly doubt they’d want involved in.

Finally you’d hope they’d simply decided it was time to put a cork in the choir’s gob for their own benefit and that of football and Scottish society as a whole – well a man can dream, can’t he 09

I note that while the panel rejected the…error…over the designation of the club (cough) they suggested that the SFA might want to tighten up on that in future 12
Bit late 10 

I assume the charges against Rangers were dropped as the consideration of Hibs covered the same ground?
