New post from Phil…….any idea who George Angus is anybody?


Main Hypothesis 1 (as cited by others above):

George Angus was CG placeman and his removal is a sign of major shake up and TRFC finally entering the sordid world of professional management by financially astute individuals. In which case expect more bloodletting soon.

Alternate hypothesis:
Could it be George Angus that was leaking high levek information to PMG, and has he been rumbled, and taken outside for a cigarette in the sunshine?

Third hypothesis:

All of the above.
I guess we will know soon enough!

Ernie, I was going to cut and paste the Leeds thing from the BBC website, but you beat me to it. What I can’t get is how these two paragraphs can make sense when viewed together…
“Cellino, who owns Serie A side Cagliari, was initially denied the opportunity to purchase Leeds by the Football League after being found guilty in March of not paying import duty on a yacht in Italy.” and
“The independent QC has concluded that Mr Cellino’s recent conviction in the Sardinian court did not involve conduct that would “reasonably be considered to be dishonest” based on information available to him at the current time.” So he’s found guilty of avoiding tax, but can’t be considered dishonest?!?!
To be fair to the Football League it looks as if they were trying to do (what, from my limited knowledge of the case, is) the right thing, but an independent QC has decided Cellino IS a fit and proper person, despite the guilty verdict. I really don’t get it.


I would imagine that all that would be required for such a judgement is for Mr Cellino to cite other examples of even more dishonest individuals who were deemed FPP and claim legal precedent.

Where could one possibly start looking for such examples I wonder?

Do the SFA not understand how badly damaged their reputation is and how critical it is for them to be seen to act transparently in an impartial way?

“Are they stupid, incompetent or contemptuous of supporters”?

All of the above.


And corrupt.

Here’s why the TOG report should desperately concern every fan of Scottish football. Here is why this is not some Celtic obsession.Let’s (for the sake of argument) leave the events of 2012 behind us and all move on together arm in arm with a spirit of cameraderie and good natured competition, come one, come all, TRFC fans and allcomers… hail fellows well met…Wind forward a few months to April 2017. Its been a mixed season on the park for TRFC and a very bad one off it. Legal bills, unforeseen costs and some straw breaks teh camel back. Another insolvency looms, but the board so thi scoming and a CVA looks possible this time.o among us has any confidence that our administrators would act without fear or favourIt could happen. But… oops… an insolvency means a points deduction. And a points deduction might mean relegation. Who upon reading  the TOG report could have any confidence that our adminsitrators would not intervene unfairly to prevent such an occurrence?Who among us (CFC fans probably excepted by virtue of league strength) can be sure that it would not be our club – who played by the rules that should apply equally to all –  that was unfairly relegated instead? Why would I turn up for an alleged sporting contest where this very possibility was even countenanced?Not I!

Good stuff!
I’m still catching up after an enforced absence due to family circumstances, but glad to be able to get back to this.
And so – in summary – where do we find ourselves today?
Well to buy a ST – or even a match ticket, or not? That is the salient question.
And the answer is – for me – overwhelmingly : Not.

And Why?

The game is conspicuously rigged. And rigged by the very people who were charged with keeping it honest.

And we are being kept in ignorance of this fact.

And Kept in ignorance by the actions of the very people who should be charged with keeping us informed.

Its all gone a bit North Korea in Scottish football.

So its perhaps not surprising that fans like me will be ‘heading South’ so to speak.

Shame. There’s alot to like about ICTFC.
If they could only find an honest league to play in, things would be rosy indeed!

Whose assets are they anyway?
There is a way forward. 
A new rangers logo. 
An rfc crest 
Cheated. (Sorry) 
That would circumvent the mash ip issue, reconcile Scottish football. 
It’s not the desire to punish former rfc fans (hail fellow John james, well met) that motivates me. There but for the grace of God and all that. No time for the knuckle draggers. But without a blatant nod in the direction of the cheating that was tolerated hitherto, games a bogey for all of us. We are here to compete against ranjurs. On a level playing field. We lose fair and square so be it. But when you tilt the park until you are sure to win, as you did for a decade, be sure to keep your nadgers out of range! We are not kicking you when you are down. We are pulling you by your exposed scrotum back into the real world from a mental illness that had consumed you and hurt us. The appropriate response is gratitude. Hint.

The Case for a New SFA.
Viz top tip:
Are you a Scottish sports journalist or fan of Ibrox club struggling to understand the meaning of the word “liquidation”? 
Simply Google ” Redcar steelworks”.
Then grow a pair. 
And stop insulting the intelligence of everyone else in the world and spare a thought for some genuine victims who were not the architects of their own downfall. 

The Case for a New SFA.
EPL pricing out fans.
It Will not end well.
Economics 101
Addicted die hard fans are already deserting the Bollinger of Stamford bridge for the Buckie of lower league outfits. Have you seen the price of an EPL season ticket?
And all it takes is one EU or TTIP legal challenge and TV money is vapour! 
And what does that leave?
Unpaid bills and dishonoured contracts.
