On this day in 1971, the Ibrox disaster happened during a Rangers v Celtic game at Ibrox. 66 fans died in a crush. Some of us remember that day, some of us may even have been there, while some of us would not even be on this earth at the time. 

We are all football fans. Nobody should go to a football match and never return home. Rest in Peace.

Wow! I know we are not meant to put much store on the thumbs up or down, but two people have given thumbs down to this post! Who on earth could find fault with a post respecting the dead from the Ibrox disaster?

================================

A bit puzzled at the thumbs down myself A.J, but there’s nowt queerer than folk as they say!

“If they move out of Hampden, the SFA are in danger of leaving themselves hostages to Rangers and Celtic,” said Queen’s Park president Alan Hutchison.

======================

I am a Celtic shareholder and if it was up to me (which it is not), I would tell the SFA here and now that Celtic Park is unavailable for any future fixture.  However I know that will not happen, but I doubt there is anything they could do to force Celtic to allow them use of the stadium.

I see, too, that PMGB is issuing challenges, in two posts, to the Ibrox based boards to issue denials of what he is telling us.

============================

I see it is alleged £800k is owed to suppliers. In my view unless any of it is due to a financial behemoth such as one of the big six energy suppliers, then we are unlikely to see any winding up requests heading towards court. It simply wouldn’t be worth the risk for any small supplier in Scotland to do that. Having said that I find it remarkable anyone is willing to extend them any sort of credit at all, or are they worried about the bully boys on that score as well?

I’m sure the SFA will want to satisfy themselves all is well though. I am also sure a herd of pink elephants takes off from Glasgow Airport at 20:00hrs tonight with the moon as their destination.

I am not a member of FF for JR Group, but I can see that a private company(or a private association of companies) can tell  enquirers into their affairs to feck off.

==================================

Therein lies the problem. I work for a private company, but it is answerable big style to its Government appointed Regulator. The SFA have no Regulator.  The media could easily take up the role and apply pressure that would have an effect, but clearly they would rather see the current stinking, some would say corrupt, state of affairs continue.

We do have one thing to thank King for. The surge in the rich variety of the English language being used by people all over Scotland is magnificent. Long may it continue.

===========================

As a Celtic fan I feel I have many things to thank him for. In fact, he truly is a gift that keeps on giving.

Glad to see Aberdeen winning tonight. Normally I would not bother unless a result one way or the other had a positive benefit for my team, however I believe a number of people feeling jilted tonight would have been hoping Aberdeen lost, and that includes a sizeable number of media people.

Barring a surprise from the Compliance Officer, it looks like the best hope is the Res. 12 cause supported by Celtic in the CAS.

===========================

Jimbo, the big fear is now they know they are free from the scrutiny of a court or indeed any scrutiny at all, they could now go the whole hog and bluff this one out as well ending with another ‘move on’ statement.

A mere layman like myself is in no position to disagree with opinion of Legal Counsel. Unfortunately it means to me the SFA can do anything, absolutely anything, and can never ever be held accountable to anyone.
