It doesn’t need complicated goal line technology. A simple system could be implemented by two cameras and a PC to record and rewind the video. Stick a video referee in radio contact with the ref and hey presto. If you want to get fancy then give each manager three challenges like they do in tennis. When they’re used up then thats it.

Seems like the obvious solution oldcourse. Tom English is a champion of this. It works for rugby and cricket, and I’m sure there’s someone at the SFA who’s heard of cricket.

A bit off topic and I know I really shouldn’t but here goes. Last night I had the stupidity to listen to SSB. I can hear the sighs and groans already. Anyhoos, as the show is promoted as Scotland’s only week day phone in for football fans why do the pundits all have views that differ from 96% of Scottish football fans, not counting TRFC fans of course. I’m getting the 96% from last years massive online poll and I’m assuming the voters still hold the same views. The show is an absolute disgrace. Derek Johnstone defends TRFC to the nth degree of ridiculousness …

I usually give the podcast a listen. You do get the odd caller who speaks sense. Last night’s was like an unofficial Ibrox podcast though. Less objectivity than usual. You got the impression most of the hosts were wearing black armbands to mark ‘oor worst defeat since Berwick 1967’. A summary of recent programmes could read: Staunch defence of McCoist, everybody wants Rangers back in the SPL, debt free, same club, totally innocent as affirmed by Mr Justice Cocklecarrot and the FTTT, unbroken history, fantastic support, Green is right, Green is wrong – they’re worse than the worst-ever team – so it cannae be Ally’s fault, players don’t deserve the jersey, we are not worthy. Celtic hugely unachieving.

Great gestures in support of the Pars from the Rovers, Cowdenbeath and Alex Ferguson …

Aye, inspirational to see such support.

Was not aware of the series of articles in The Mail on Sunday on GM. Andrew Picken seems to know his stuff.

Is this an SDM Mark II scenario?

Danish Pastry has indeed been absent of late. I will drop him a note to inform him of your plea…
Godmorgen allesammen. 
I’ve been absent without leave. Mostly following events via twitter (where I tweet far too much about issues not relevant or welcome here 13 ). Hopefully, there’ll be a theme park one day, based around these sagas, with various ‘rides’ (not all free, obviously, tee-hee).
Onwards and upwards.
PM sent to JC.

Fascinating encounter John. Interesting, too, that he agreed to meet you afterwards. 
Sadly, it appears not only the authorities, but also certain club chairmen have decided to take the path of least resistance. This corruption won’t end well. It’s just a pity not one newspaper will run the story. As mentioned before, it’s like fitba’s All the President’s Men withoot the good MSM media guys. 
Still, I reckon the SFA are worried. And the campaign to promote the liquidation lie and the same-co narrative is costing certain folks a fortune. They’re all on borrowed time and borrowed money.

Morning all? Birdsong and blue skies in North Zealand today. 
John, I posted a response to your meeting with Regan. I was auto-informed it was ‘spam’ and it wiz flushed doon the virtual cludgie 🙂 Don’t have time to re-write again. But, summa summarum – bravo!

John Clark Meets “The SFA”
Bravo JC for the interview report. Been following reaction to it. Feels as though genuine movement finally being made to bring issues into the wider public domain. JJ is making a fascinating contribution, too, and quite often echoing sentiments expressed here for the past many years. And his sense of fair play and sporting justice is exemplary. Phil is still adding some deeper insights even though he has a momentous 100th anniversary on his mind, and a piece about that in the works. 

Not posting here much myself, but so many others far more capable do that. Keeping up via twitter, etc. 
Godt nyt år and onwards and upwards in 2016 (somewhat belated).

Two wrongs and a right

Happy Christmas Eve everyone on here.
Lovely post jimbo. Brought back memories of gazing into Doig’s Toy Shop on Duke Street in the weeks before Christmas — and the gradual appearence of Christmas trees in folks windaes. Certainly cheered up the black tenements and the dreich 1960s East End in winter. Poverty was a way of life for many of us East Enders, so dreams of Doig’s toys usually remained in the window of Doig’s. Still, selection boxes and annuals were braw, and oranges and thrupney bits in yer stocking wurnae too bad either. In those days you got on with it, Christmas wasn’t hyped up as it is now. I expect children facing poverty today, and who experience a ‘modest’ Christmas, probably feel it more deeply than some of us did because of the slick commercialism promoting a form of celebration not all can afford. 

As an exile with Christmas Day on the 24th in the evening, it seems a long way from Duke Street. But your past never leaves you. I think there’s a wee bairn in aw of us still oan Christmas Eve 🙂

Big thanks to all the excellent contributors to this blog in 2015. All the best you and yours this Christmas and onwards and upwards in the new year when it comes.
