No worries.

I tend to give a nod to the original post by putting in the original tag so that people can refer back to see what the thread is related to.

I’ll try and make more of a distinction between general comments on a  topic  and direct replies to avoid any confusion in the future.

I know you didn’t and I never said you did.

I take your point but isn’t that to the heart of the matter.

Celtic have and will have a monopoly, as far as the eye can see,  in ensuring they get every single penny the Scottish game has to offer them for their successful achievements.

I have no problem with that as a lot of it is down to history and Celtic have done nothing dodgy to be in that position. However for heaven’s sake lets not hear any more complaints about not having any domestic competition and how that then puts them at a disadvantage in European competition.

The Scottish game as whole is in a destructive cycle where it looks like no-one will ever be able to make up the gap.

Celtic and everyone else has to just acknowledge that’s the way it is or people have to be willing to come up with some way of redressing the balance.

Maybe Celtic could tell some folks to support their local club instead of glory hunting, stop taking players like Scott Allen out of the Scottish game and then having them out on loan or warming benches. Agree that if they make the Champions League group stages they will not take the previous season league winning cash prize and redistribute it to the other clubs. When they sell Dembele on for £40m do they really need an extra £3m or could all the other premiership clubs better use circa £275k for domestic player development or simply pass it on to Project Brave .

Maybe the above is from left field and certainly would cause trouble when the aim of a Plc is basically to look after yourself and stuff the rest but it is going to take something like that to provide any sort of redressing of the balance.

As I say its either that or we all just shut up and accept where we are – and that includes Celtic being hamstrung by being a big fish in a small pond.

With regards to a few posts being placed re T’Rangers defeat at Tynecastle  I remind everyone, including Ryan, that it is accepted by all and sundry that Scottish Football needs a ‘Strong Rangers’.

Therefore who are we not to be concerned and discuss the implications of a poor result that could be seen as potentially being the undoing the world as we know it. After all it is the career for a future England manager, England Goalkeeper and a £6m Leipzig wunderkid that are at stake here.

I have paid my money here so was fully entitled to post about the game on Wednesday, even gloat at the result and the manner in which Hearts played, but I resisted the temptation as I am acutely aware the wheels could easily come off at Fir Park tomorrow.

Last night the radio shows seemed to do the usual, concentrate on T’Rangers being defeated first before looking at Hearts. It is just the way it is and always has been.  

If the MSM actually started to focus on good play and achievements as opposed to failure then we may actually start getting somewhere with the game in this country.

As for positives,  at Tynecastle last night the main truss for the new stand has been erected and now towers above the old stand. 
(Pictures and video on the Foundation of Hearts twitter page for anyone interested.)

It is impressive that the architect Jim Clydesdale future proofed his design of the other three stands so that the truss simply sits on the existing tower structures at each end of the ground.

A significant and visible sign that progress is being made off the pitch by Ann Budge and her team and hopefully Cathro and his team can match that on the pitch as well and kick on from Wednesday’s result.

Indeed. And that was my other thought.
Even if Mark Allen does a good job T”Rangers wouldn’t see any cash for any upcoming talent (internal or bought in)  for a god number of years.
To date a good few lads showing talent have been allowed to leave to keep the lights on.
At present the only prospect they have is McRorie who I think has stepped up and performed well when asked.He certainly has confidence and could develop into a decent centre back playing with the likes of Souttar for Scotland.

I am sure the thought will have crossed other’s minds but will say it anyway.
Celtics ‘free money’ from the VVD  transfer is more than T’Rangers stated  loan requirements to keep the lights on for the next year or two.
Thats the size of the gap between Celtic and the rest of us.

Thought that may be the case but was wondering if someone would be trying to get ahead of the game.
