Despite reporting on a match in Paisley, Chick came on air about ten minutes after the match had finished in Edinburgh to state “this is a sad, sad day for Scottish football”. Aberdeen reach their first final in circa 15 years and he couldn’t get in quick enough to dampen the high spirits of Dons fans.
Clearly, as we all know Chick is a “reporter” with an agenda. A permanent embarrassment and frequent disgrace!
It Is Better To Offer No Excuse Than A Bad One
Radio Scotland were asking for sporting highlights of the year tonight.
Hats off / chapeau to the practical joker who succeeded in getting this one read out – ‘Rangers scoring the winner at Partick Thistle in April, with the crowd going bezerk, and the team securing a return to Europe’
Added irony was thrown in by Kenny McIntyre who read it out without any irony!
This was immediately followed by another highlight which was Derek McInnes saying thanks but no thanks to Rangers.
The producers are clearly trying to lead McIntrye towards comedy to get some listeners back.
Who Is Conning Whom?
So we’ve now had about ten hours to digest the belter of a statement from Dave King & co. last night. Their arrogance clearly knows no bounds.
Anyway, if only wee Stevie in IT was a Dons fan – he might have chosen to edit the statement before publication. Something along the lines of;
‘We endorse that position because moving to a brand new club like The Rangers is a big step with concomitant () risk, driven by the unrealistic expectations of the senior management and the fans, and the non existent resources available to meet such expectation’
Okay, it’s maybe not nearly as amusing as the original statement, but it’s definitely 99.9% (©Kris Boyd) more accurate.
Time to Ditch the Geek Show
Who on earth, at the BBC, deemed it appropriate to commission a full interview with Graeme Souness?
His relevance and his personal interest in todays game in Scotland is negligible.
The only thing Graeme Souness is interested in is Graeme Souness!
The only pertinent questions that could be asked of him are the circumstances of his EBT, and how David Murray conducted his cheating in Scottish football through the late 80’s and early 90’s (pre EBT’s) but somehow I think these are areas the BBC won’t venture towards!
Time to Ditch the Geek Show
A quiet weekend for Dons fans like myself but I’m sure we will all be hoping Motherwell cheer up a rather bleak Sunday in the north east today.
The highlight of my sporting weekend actually arrived early – Friday morning, driving to work to be precise. Super salary McCoist happened to be on Talksport radio with Alan Brazil and for some reason they started talking about car boot sales. Alan enquiries of Ally, ‘have you ever been to a car boot sale?’, to which Ally says no but then Brazil comes in with ‘I thought that would have been right up your street – all that tax free cash in the sky rocket!’
This was followed by a lovely moment of radio silence as the producer tried to get some impromptu adverts on.
From Mark Daly’s BBC documentary, there were 15 EBT recipients never identified. I wonder if Ally had his nose in the trough too?!
The Vice Closes
So having long since given up on the SFA ever doing the right thing or the ‘national’ broadcaster ever providing some fair and balanced coverage of the national game, at about 3.45pm yesterday, I put it on, for 5 mins, purely to get the half time score at Murrayfield.
Was Chick Young on level 5 funded or tax payer funded commission to state ‘it’s armed forces day today at Ibrox’?! He must have said it about 5 times in his HT ‘analysis’ before I gave up on finding out the Dons score.
And on this armed forces day nonsense, who covers the costs of this? Tax payer, club or company? Surely a club/company that requires £4million by month end can’t be throwing money at this?
With regards to Stewart Milne, Bill1903, he has always been out of touch with his own supporters, but appears now to have taken it to an entirely new level.
