“I’d like to see strict financial fair play but on the other hand there has been a recalibration of finances within the game since Rangers liquidation and exit from the top flight.”

I know that the vast majority of the SFM community are fully aware that there is no period after liquidation, but this sentence would certainly have benefited from one!

I fully agree with the points raised about the disconnect between the various UEFA departments and the undeniable truth of the demise of RFC(IL), but these UEFA web pages, especially this one:
will continue to be seized upon by supporters of the team currently playing out of Ibrox as evidence that they are regarded by UEFA as the same club. To be honest, it does make for a very compelling, evidence-based, argument.
The problem is that we are currently being presented with two opposing versions of reality, both emanating from, effectively, the same source.
I know which one I believe, and it’s not the one that “the people who are” will rely upon to argue their case, especially since my preferred version is currently only referenced in a letter reported to have been received by lawyers representing a group of Celtic shareholders but, as yet, not in the public domain while their preferred version appears on the European governing body’s website.
If, as Fan of Football suggests, these pages can be edited Wiki-style then someone with the appropriate skills need to get on that straight away. Alternatively, The Taxman Cometh’s original suggestion that clarification needs to be sought from UEFA needs followed up ASAP.

Am I alone in thinking that it’s not entirely outwith the bounds of possibility that some of the teams in the bottom half of the league, post-split, might have an additional home game against The Rangers? Unless, of course, their finances improve dramatically, their signing policy takes a turn for the better, or their other cheek, the SFA, up their game on their behalf.

Launch of SFSA Fans’ Survey

Absolutely superb, Highlander.


If that doesn’t illicit a response, nothing will.

I’ve never been a fan of the “multiple copy & paste” complaints procedure. In my opinion a single, well written, thoughtfully constructed and respectfully presented correspondence from a genuinely concerned and passionate “customer” is more likely to get a response than a barrage of identical complaints.

If the “head honcho” of every SPFL club which has suggested that there should be nothing done about the decade(s) of systematic cheating, or hasn’t commented at all about the issue, were to receive this email from one of their fans it might generate some boardroom discussion or, better still, move them to elicit their own fans’ opinions and issue a statement.

If one fan from each of the clubs represented on this forum contacted his/her club using Highlander’s email as a template and then posted on here that they had done so (to prevent other fans of the same club from duplicating, and thus reducing its effect) it might produce a very positive result.

Clubs may not know that their fans are angry, or why? Highlander’s email explains it – in spades.

Good Try Mr. McKenzie

THE RANGERS NIL? WHOMISSEDTHEPENALTY? JJ didn’t have to do much research, the article in question was posted on here yesterday, from PMGB’s twitter.

JJ is scathing in his critisism of SFM, Sergio, and often forgets to acknowledge his sources. 
I was being sarcastic.

Good Try Mr. McKenzie
I note, with interest, that John James’ latest offering leans heavily on an article in the Guardian from 2012. He is to be commended on his research.
