No not really, fans don’t count.  It was just a topic of the day, watching football in Baltic conditions.  I was thinking of the time I went to see Arbroath V Airdrie (believe it or not!) at Gayfield.  Not the coldest but very windy and rainy, the North Sea behind us.  It got a mention. A day for the Bovril.

AllyJ,  BBC pundits complaining that the new stand at Tynecastle is too cold where they sit!  Don’t tell me your club didn’t install central heating?

JC,  I was following on from the decision of the Football Fans for Judicial Review Group.

“There is not a case in law to force the SFA to comply with even a perfectly reasonable request which is in the best interests of the game in Scotland.”

Now admittedly their remit was a broader one than Res. 12.  So I guess on a narrower brief with a different QCs opinion it might still be possible to take at least the SFA to the COS.  I especially see the case for loss of earnings to Celtic and subsequently the shareholders.  But what do I know?

There is nothing in what you say that I disagree with, you probably know that.  Going through the CAS route might not be ideal but it might be a worse case scenario.  I’d happily through the book at the suits in Hampden.  Humiliation at a ‘real’ court would be too good for them.

Dom16,  Was thinking about Christmas decorations today.  I took mine down.  Most neighbours have done the same.  Nowadays with the huge build up to Christmas from November we are ready to put it behind earlier than in the past.  It used to be customary to keep decorations up until 5 Jan. ‘Epiphany Eve’ or ‘twelfth night’.  It’s good to see them go up but good to see them put away for another year!
(Merry Christmas).

Historical / hysterical January transfers:
Jean-Alain Boumsong (Rangers to Newcastle £8m, 2005)
This was a strange signing on many levels, with Newcastle paying Rangers £8m for Boumsong’s services just a few months after he’d been available on a free.

The Newcastle manager?  G. Souness! 21

(Think he received an EBT after it)

Just dawned on me it might be easier to just disable the thumb down button rather than introducing a LIKE button. 


It Is Better To Offer No Excuse Than A Bad One
The thumbs down misuse mystifies me.  It happens often.  I wish we had a simple LIKE button with no dislike option.  You either vote for a post in a positive way or scroll past.  I know it would sacrifice the option of registering a strong disagreement in points of principle, but worth it I think. 

It would take away the perverse satisfaction of these trolls.  Besides, our great posters are very able to counter any dubious posts with logical counter arguments. (Which can then be LIKED)
