If only I could translate every post that bitches about the SFA/SPFL into signatures we would be well past the next action trigger of 5000 by now but writing on comments sections seems to be more about looking clever than being effectual for most.
I think you will find that most of the posts are the same people posting multiple times. We might have to accept that within the vast majority of the Scottish football supporting public there is not the appetite for involvement in a campaign to right the wrongs within the governing bodies? Evidence also shows that through their inactivity the clubs are not minded to take action. A bit glass half empty I know but realism also? I admire your tenacity and wish you success however.
ps I have signed the petition!

John Clark Meets “The SFA”

From Michael Gannon in the Record-
VALENTINE’S weekend and Peter Lawwell is standing outside the door in the rain clutching a bunch of drooping flowers with a box of Milk Tray under his arm. Unfortunately, the Champions League isn’t interested. She’ll just grab the bouquet and the choccies and slam the door in his face. Celtic have got the lovey-dovey eyes for Europe’s elite competition but it’s looking increasingly clear that it’s out of their league. It’s the same for all the diddy nations. Once proud clubs like Ajax, Dinamo Zagreb and Anderlecht, the old aristocracy is being left looking like a drunk uncle at a wedding after the wife’s left him.
The Record talking up Scottish football, as per usual. Let’s switch the current league positions of the teams, and replace the word “Celtic” with “Rangers” in this article. Would it, could it, ever be published in the Record? In my humble opinion, not in a million years. Others might care to speculate why that is so.
Aye I think it would by the way (wee weegie intonation!).

Anybody sat in the South stand at Pittodrie during January with a Northerly, or worse an easterly firing in from the North Sea? Now that’s cold! Fulham indeed!
I’m thinking Gayfield must be up there for the coldest ground in the country?
Scottish football needs a warmer Arbroath!

Sorry tried to hold my tongue but no, I have to agree completely with Bill1903 here
Wholeheartedly agree with Bill1903 and Tayred. Grew up in the north east and now live in the Borders and sectarianism has never really been an issue. Some funny hand shakes though 04 03

Even having done that, I would not have a clue on the correct value of a TRFC/RIFC share, yet every man and his dog of the blue persuasion can confidently assert that the value is not 20p but 27.5p. 
Can one of you clued up guys remind me what the basis of the 20p per share is?

Homunculus December 21, 2017 at 20:07Yes but have you amortised those values EJ.========================Just keep an eye on the Cash Flow next year.
Aye cash is King or king. They will limp along until season book time (45k of them = circa £18m netto?). With Sevco having that kind of budget, whilst not being able to challenge Celtic, we are back to a duopoly rather than a monopoly. They really are f**ked if they want to be top dogs anytime soon. But the bears don’t want to hear that.

Who Is Conning Whom?
BallyargusDecember 6, 2017 at 09:29Another cracker from C Jack in the Herald,”It is understood that the Gers opted to do the honourable thing and wait until after the Premiership double-header with Aberdeen last week before making an official approach for the Reds boss.” 
I know, I saw that earlier! Some of the stuff spouted by Chris (union) Jack these past weeks has been beyond belief.
My take on the saga is that it stinks, stinks to high heaven! The SMSM, including and maybe particularly the BB effin C, stated from day 1 that McInnes was the preferred candidate so basically doing Sevco’s dirty work and destabilising Aberdeen. I believe D McInnes has been “sleekit” as BILL 1903 says and does not come out of this well. His body language over the past weeks has sent messages.
We really are in a no win position. If we try to hold on to a manager who no longer wants to be at the club that will end in tears. I have no problem with him leaving and, as posted here a few days ago, always thought that would be the outcome, but the whole way in which the thing has been handled, as I say, stinks.
I hope that when we move for another manager that if that is someone who is in a job currently that we do it properly with respect for all concerned.

There seems a certainty amongst some Aberdeen fans on Twitter that McInnes is off to Ibrox early next week. Apart from everything else connected with this, should it happen, I hope the Dons fans demand that the compensation is paid in full, upfront, or at least prior to McInnes’ first match in charge of TRFC.I think it would be hard for Milne to claim he had no choice in the matter if he allows a club that has stalked his manager to pay for the privilege by instalments. If TRFC cannot afford to pay the compensation up front, the SFA should refuse them permission to register him (if managers are registered) or ban him from the dugout until such time as the compensation is paid, with Aberdeen having no say in the matter.At some time the game’s governors have to say, ‘show us yer money!’ and refuse to allow a club with successive going concern matters raised in their accounts to deal with other football clubs unless it pays up front.
I am one of these and have been from the day Pedro was shown the door. Nothing we can do to stop it but why the delay?, why the statements from Milne and McInnes? The title of this blog could be applied to the saga.
The uncertainty must surely have had an impact on the morale of the team and the manager’s motivation! 1 – 0 down at home as I write.
I hope we get every last penny of compo and yes up front in full.
