Exactly. An 8mm camera wired up to an old analogue tv coupled with a Betamax VCR could do the job. Save a fortune.
Sounds up to the job – as long as you can prevent any LNS interference .

I agree C.H. I’m not a lawyer, just an ordinary guy who hopes never to have to turn to lawyers or courts to get a fair deal but recognises that lawyers and courts are a necessary part of civiliation. Now if LNS had been sitting bewigged on the bench in court, I would have been inclined to tug my forelock and say “Yes m’Lud” and accept his decision as, like Judge Judy’s, real and final. However, he wasn’t bewigged and wasn’t sitting on the Bench. He was, as I see it, wearing the hat of an expensive lawyer addressing a taxing question for clients paying him to get them of the hook. Now, I’m not suggesting the noble lord was being unscrupulous or dishonest, he was – as I see it – just doing what lawyers do. He solved a problem with neat and plausible legal argument.

Seems to me that complaining to the Beeb about Chico Young tripping over his mouth would be like complaining to the circus that the other Chico kept tripping over his feet!

I would have thought the simplest and most likely explanation for McCoist’s behaviour and outbursts is that his back is against the wall and has been so for some time. Denied a blindfold, he can see the firing squad lining up. His only hope is to appeal to the gallery, shout the things they want to hear and decry those they want to hear decried. What you are seeing is someone in panic. I can’t bear to watch……..

i obviously remember the celtic players well but alan gordon, jim o’rourke, arthur duncan, alex cropley, pat stanton etc….

And not forgetting the most underrated footballer in Scotland in the 60′s and early 70′s.
One, Alex Edwards (Dunfermline and Hibs)
Have to agree with you, but Brownlie, Blackley and Schaedler have to get a mention too. On their game, the Hibees most devastating attacks invariably seemed to start from the back. Have great memory of the cup semi-final replay where “Turnbull’s Tornadoes” played the Gers off the park only to be (sadly) thrashed by Celts in the final. But then, revenge in the Drybrough Cup Cup, as I remember! Matches between both clubs have provided great entertainment over the years and I hope the Hibees make a game of the final this year.

I only wanted the first couple of minutes where Dan McPhail repeats the word “Furtive” a number of times–

Worth watching the whole way through, all the same. There’s a familiar and not irrelevant ring to the story: PC Plod sits blissfully on the evidence incompetently ignoring the crime committed right under his nose and the perpetrators getting off scot-free.

Another idea worth considering, Smartie but perhaps there’s room and a need for more than just one approach. I suggested the red card idea, because I think it’s a course of action that many, perhaps most, fans might be inclined to support. It would have the benefit of being cheap and easy to organise. Supported by a strong and clear statement of what it represented, I don’t see how it lacks clarity of purpose. It would be a clear statement to the footballing authorities, the media and home viewers that the paying supporters are angry at the way the game is being run and that the corrupted management of the game must be sorted out. Surely that is a message worth getting across!
