World cup bagsies. Is it too late to pick? I was away for a few days and have tracked back but can’t find the terms of engagement, can anyone enlighten me? I’ll take Greece anyway as they appear to be unbagsied. They’ve had a shock win before and are thoroughly unlikeable; my kinda team!!
Oh, and good luck Hearts, I trust that you’ll come out of this well.

Apart from public funding which is a shame I don’t see what the fuss is about Murray Park. A Championship team can get by perfectly well without such a facility as can, and do, most Premiership clubs. End of.

Andygraham66 says “If I had a pound for every morning I woke up the Govan club would be going into administration at 7am AIM opening hours for official releases

I’d have enough for a good night out”
=============================
If I had a pound for every morning I woke up and they had actually gone in to admin I could have bought the whole jing bang aff o’ thon SDM.

The DoF plus coach/manager may have failed to deliver in the UK but it shows a level of clarity of thought and future planning for which Hearts and Ms Budge deserve plaudits. There are two reasons why. The first is that, whether or not Levein is the right man, she has obviously recognised that as a business woman she needs someone who knows fitba so probably not an ego trip for her.
The second is the whole long termism of the arrangement that we just can’t get a grip of in the UK. This appointment is being reported and discussed as if it’s the old manager/asst manager set up, it isn’t. The theory is that the DoF looks after everything except the team’s tactics and performance on the pitch. He looks after all the continuous stuff such as scouting, contracts, fitness, youths etc. Apart from acknowledging that a good manager may be a crap long term organiser and vice versa the main benefit of the syatem is that if/when the manager leaves the system continues and the next guy steps up. The clear out and rebuild every time a manager leaves cannot be sustained by any serious club; ask Aberdeen! This shows a real commitment to the future.
For some reason the UK game sees this as unacceptable for the coach as “how can he pick the team when he’s not in total control” which is ridiculous, no business hands over total control to a Manager, even CEO’s need a business plan to justify commitment by the company. As an example, interesting to see Malky Mackay has dropped his dispute with Cardiff City and the speculation that he may have overstepped the budget, this is not unusual in fitba.
Good luck to Hearts, I suspect that not only will they be ok in the chumpeenship but they will also come back to the premiership a stronger club. Also hope the DoF thing works out as an example to the others.

Bogs Dollox.  On the beeb Scotland news Douglas Fraser too explained how the 30% barrier lead to the TOP requirement with no mention of concert party.  They did at least quote the bit about how the trust appears to be able to raise funds when DK wants but it was all pretty subservient.  You could detect the fear in Fraser’s eyes as he hastily churned out that the share value of 27p meaning no one is likely to accept 20p, i.e. a fuss about nothing.  Aye right!  The shares are worth what the market will pay: for any significant trade that was diddly squat before the judgement and worse now the cold shoulder beckons.

“This person is totally destroying the site.”  That’s the general idea.  It’s concomitant with being a troll.  That’s why trolls troll specific sites that question their agenda, usually the big lie; whether it’s politics or fitba.  Editing would only put SFM on a par with the MSM.
My only response has been ignore him/her/them (it?).  I would request that those fine gentlemen on here who feel obliged to counter the troll should desist.  You are great at arguing but a troll needs only a response to keep trolling.  p.s. did I mention it’s a troll?

Graham’s uttering is typical of (concomitant with?) paid bum kissers that hang around spivs. See Tony Curtis in Sweet Smell of Success. He is trying to re start a non story on the basis that his spivs tapped up McInnes. What a tit!

Aye a fair quantum of concomitance with that quintessential SFMship is required to give the Saintees biggest fan anything else rather than the cold shoulder on a decent night out.  The misguided view that TRFC have an elevated status is founded on a sense of entitlement so the sucking up to L5 feeds and speculation is not unexpected amongst fans with laptops and EBT’ers such as Boyd, Rae, Ferguson et al.  The illuminating thing here is just how far the supposed journos have gone down the same road, with the notable exception of Chick in this case.  I suspect he may well have had an inside track which is more than we can say about any of the others.  Who knows, maybe he asked TRFC, an off the wall idea for the SMSM there?


Who Is Conning Whom?
That statement clears the air.  The SMSM clearly didn’t appreciate how much TRFC didn’t want McInnes anyway, that’s ’em telt.
