Reiver, that’s a good point.  They (The SFA) blank you even when you supply your real name & address.  It would seem that by and large they only want to engage with ‘member clubs’.  There’s an Americanism word that has come into vogue in recent years, you hear it all the time in politics & business etc.   Stakeholders.  It would seem that this hasn’t fully caught on at the SFA.  Shareholders of member clubs, fans of member clubs don’t count.  They obviously don’t Stakehold enough.

Football without fans……..

Sorry Ian no disrespect intended.

John Clark,  I have a solution for you.  After the demise of The Night Manager series,  I was wondering what could replace the Sunday night slot for me.  Lo and behold Auntie comes up with Undercover.  You will love it.  And it’s breaking new ground.  Gripping.  A Bafta nominee next year if I’m not mistaken.

It will get the leetle grey cells back to normal (a la Monsiour Poiret). SP.

BTW forgot to mention, a wee bit off topic, sorry.
But lets face it it’s late on a Sunday night so no new footie stories.

“MARK WARBURTON’S side were seconds away from clinching the sought-after promotion back to the top-flight but a 94th minute goal postponed the party.”

(Daily Record, Alan Clark).

As I mentioned this morning Alisdair Lamont’s piece on the BBC proves that it is possible to write an article about TRFC without mentioning the ‘return to the premiership’ or ‘demotion 4 years ago’.
As we can see in the opening sentence of the Daily Record article they find it impossible not to mention ‘the return’.

They want us to ‘move on’ but continually antagonise many fans by resorting to this type of reporting.  It’s cheap and sensationalist, which we could expect from the tabloids but the so called quality broadsheets are equally as bad.

It’s quite simple really, make no mention of demotions or returns. Why can’t they just focus on a Title Win and Promotion from the Championship?

Dom16,  Was thinking about Christmas decorations today.  I took mine down.  Most neighbours have done the same.  Nowadays with the huge build up to Christmas from November we are ready to put it behind earlier than in the past.  It used to be customary to keep decorations up until 5 Jan. ‘Epiphany Eve’ or ‘twelfth night’.  It’s good to see them go up but good to see them put away for another year!
(Merry Christmas).

Historical / hysterical January transfers:
Jean-Alain Boumsong (Rangers to Newcastle £8m, 2005)
This was a strange signing on many levels, with Newcastle paying Rangers £8m for Boumsong’s services just a few months after he’d been available on a free.

The Newcastle manager?  G. Souness! 21

(Think he received an EBT after it)

Just dawned on me it might be easier to just disable the thumb down button rather than introducing a LIKE button. 


It Is Better To Offer No Excuse Than A Bad One
The thumbs down misuse mystifies me.  It happens often.  I wish we had a simple LIKE button with no dislike option.  You either vote for a post in a positive way or scroll past.  I know it would sacrifice the option of registering a strong disagreement in points of principle, but worth it I think. 

It would take away the perverse satisfaction of these trolls.  Besides, our great posters are very able to counter any dubious posts with logical counter arguments. (Which can then be LIKED)
