Comment on Launch of SFSA Fans’ Survey by StevieBC.

When back in Glasgow, I always take my wife and kids to SPFL games.
I also buy my kids tops etc. each season.

No more.

Done with Scottish senior football.

Quote from the TRFC MD, Stewart Robertson.

”Rangers is a modern, balanced and fair football club. It is crucial all fans appreciate they are representing an institution that has been in existence for 145 years and it is their duty to enhance and protect its reputation…”

Think Pedro must have slipped him some altar wine into the MD’s coffee… 15

Unintended consequences and all that…

If crowdfunding is initiated for a JR, then the expectation is that fans from many / most [?] senior clubs would contribute.  Who knows, even some TRFC supporters might contribute, but for different reasons ?

And this coming together for a common cause could generate more goodwill amongst the fans of all clubs…but it could also further entrench the division between TRFC fans and everyone else.

The SFA, SPFL, and the clubs want us all just ‘to move on’ for the good of the game.

Yet their continued inaction has forced this proposed JR as possibly the last resort before a fans’ boycott.

When will the penny drop amongst the Hampden blazers that ‘moving on’ requires input from themselves?
They can’t simply instruct the fans to forget everything that has happened in recent years.

Alternatively, frustrated fans could choose to help themselves to ‘move on’ by supporting a JR.

And regardless of what does or doesn’t happen: TRFC will always be a negative influence on the Scottish game, IMO, and there’s b*gger all we can do about that, [self-inflicted liquidation aside].

As a rule of thumb, the roof trusses are only capable of holding the sarking and tiles. In modern kit houses, even the joists in the roof are barely capable of taking even the load of flimsy flooring. This subject to a safety factor of 1.4-1.6….

BP, that roofing info went right over ma heid !

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…]

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
