Ah so Spiers returns …..

He’s on the Radio Clyde phone-in tonight. I’m not too familiar with it but I listened to the one from the 30th today – on me iPod – while strolling a North Zeeland beach wae the dug. It was heavy going at times but there were also some very clued-up callers.

An opportunity to ask some pertinent questions?

Have I missed something but can anyone answer the following?

1 What was the name of the club that was given conditional membership of the SFA on 27th July? Rangers FC Ltd still have membership (it has not yet been transferred) and did not change their name to RFC 2012 until an EGM on 30th July. Sevco did not become The Rangers Football Club (SC425159) until 31 July? What will the official records show were the participating clubs in this SFL cup tie?

2 What club were the participating players registered with and when did this take place?

3 Have the SFA now provided FIFA with an answer to the question of withholding international clearance to players? Have they provided the necessary clearance as the players appear to be registered with their new clubs?

4 If Rangers FC Ltd held an EGM did the majority shareholder vote? Why would the majority shareholder vote for a proposition that would facilitate a name switch if this vote was against his interest unless of course The Rangers Football Club Ltd are honouring the contract with Ticketus and removing any potential personal liabilty?

Those are some questions!

Do you think the SFA itself actually knows the answers to all of those questions? Or is it just bluffing and muddlng through?

Barcabhoy’s twin posts this morning on RTC read more as a blog than postings (as someone astutely pointed out). Impressive stuff.

They could be a very fitting intro blog for this continuation of the Internet Bampots.

Agree in holding off a wee bit before settling on a name. Some great suggestions outwith the main three. Spoiled for choice.

Plenty of time though, since RTC lives on.

Scottish Football Corruption seems more than appropriate right now.

PS The main thing is to Toupee the brains from RTC onto the baldy heid of the newco 🙂

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.
