Extract below from VB latest piece.

Another reason to keep fingers crossed that administration v.2 is just a matter of time…
===========================

“So Mr Green, where were we?…

Instead of banishing loyal Rangers fans, perhaps you should think about banning the ESPNs of this world. The commentators passing of judgement on Rangers fans, who were only creating a bit of atmosphere at the recent Berwick away tie…”

Im truly embarrassed to be a Bairn. From Alex Smith in the Daily Record.

Smith said: “… Football used to be a way of life in this country but the days of shift workers going from shipyards and factories to the football via the pub have gone.”
====================

Well done Smith for stating the bleedin’ obvious!

Yes, times have changed.

Football is not as accessible as it used to be: too expensive, (generally), for reduced quality and inconsistent kick-off times.

Also, the fans – aka the paying customers – today have much more choice of leisure pursuits during their limited free time.

But perhaps most significant is that today people are less accepting of sub-standard service and are much more likely to say: “SFA – and Ogilvie – just stick your corrupt game where the sun doesn’t shine.”

Apologies for the crudeness but Smith should be fully aware that lack of football governance is arguably the biggest threat to the future of Scottish football.

Just a wild idea…

But, what if King declared himself bankrupt?
[Well in a court recently, he did claim he was ‘penniless’].

Of course anyone who knows of the glib and shameless one would assume King would have assets hidden, or in his wife’s name – a la wee Bazza?

Would bankruptcy effectively kill off the TOP sanctions?

At this point it seems that King’s reputation is ruined in Scotland – and with the bears and even with the SMSM?

King’s time is up playing charades as ‘the Rangers saviour’, and he must – you would think – be thinking about preserving his remaining wealth as he approaches retirement…?  09

Mibbees after 20 years of failure, the national team and the SFA don’t deserve a dedicated, national stadium?

And Hampden is simply not worth keeping as a football venue for mainly sentimental reasons, IMO.

CO, I think Phil’s scoop about the manner of Nicholl’s appointment deserves a: Wow Just Wow!
It displays how dysfunctional the management structure at Ibrox has become, and you would think, it is a massive red flag.
[Apart from having no cash.]

I also have my fingers and toes crossed that in 2018 my £20 bet on TRFC finishes bottom 6 comes in – with the help of an Admin. event.

[Thanks to fellow Bampots for the tip: interestingly Sky wouldn’t accept a £50 bet for a 150/1 long shot…]


It Is Better To Offer No Excuse Than A Bad One
All the best for 2018 Bampots!

And just have to add this headline from the esteemed DR, so it must be true;

“Bluenoses out of joint as Rangers pub to be turned into gay sauna’s bar”

Couldn’t possibly comment on the article…but a couple of sentences did jump out as sounding familiar;

“…Annie Millers was one of Glasgow’s most hardcore Rangers haunts and it was a real shock for a lot of fans when it closed last year.
A lot of drinkers were hoping that someone might rescue the pub so it could reopen as it was before. This definitely won’t happen now…

Guessing it’s quiet as the Bampots have been out watching the footy…or getting dragged around the shops by their better half for the sales ?!

Wife told me last night about the Dembele ‘sale’.
Immediate reaction was that it was nonsense from the SMSM.

There ‘could’ be some truth in it: e.g. an off-the-record tip from either CFC or Dembele’s agent, perhaps to simply instigate a bidding war ?

But, my initial reaction to any big story is to always doubt the SMSM’s veracity: the lamb munchers were exposed a long time ago…and it’s a surprise that the DR in particular is still on sale in hard copy format. 

If he is sold for X millions, how will the SMSM / Level42 spin that as ‘bad news’ for CFC…and bad for Scottish football ?  22
