“I’m genuinely interested as to how these two figures are arrived at – who would be in a position to explain it, I wonder?”(Angus1983 at 09.04):

I am too. Maybe I am naive – certainly slow on a Monday morning – but to my mind ‘attendance figures’ are just that. A record of numbers present. It beggars belief that, mindful of the recent report on the Hillsborough disaster, clubs and the Police should have differing figures for attendees at football matches. In the event of a major incident (God forbid), should they not know about the thousands enjoying CG’s hospitality, for instance?
An air flight may be sold out but, if some passengers don’t turn up, it is surely the number of passengers actually travelling that the airline should record?

As I say, I may be naive, but I find the discussion on money laundering and figures massaging stimulating and suspect that somewhere in there lies a truth.

Thanks to the wonders of modern technology I can, in one day, still hear my auld maw laughing at The Vital Spark; and now, via my satellite dish, watch Alloa v Pars to a totally unintelligible commentary (not unlike Icelandic played backwards). Ye cannae beat it. Who needs the Europa Cup when ye can go teuchter

Chust sublime.

The Real Battle Begins?
From Charles Green’s statement:

“The last thing we as a club want to do is to compromise security arrangements for any match.
“I therefore appeal to all fans not to travel to this match and to Dundee United not to sell tickets to Rangers supporters.”

In other words “Please,Rangers supporters, stay away – I don’t want my investors to know what they are buying in to just yet.”

The rest of the statement is not only disgraceful but surely worrying for the SPL, the SFL and anybody concerned with the future of Scottish football as a spectator sport.

As hilarious as Chuckles latest insane ramblings are, I really wish someone from Celtic would, in the politest possible way of course, tell him to shut it and stop bringing us into his wacky schemes.


The ramblings are indeed hilarious and insane. Be patient, obonfanti88. There is more hilarity (and insanity) coming up. Think of a possible exclusive from Leggo or CG, maybe even the DR: ‘Chuckles foray in Scottish football was sponsored by PL with endorsement from Paul McC. and RTC.” .
Ridiculous, I know, but ….. what the hell, enjoy the ride.

A condom manufacturer decides to provide condoms in different sizes to suit different physiques, …………..


The diaphragm was also provided by condom manufacturers in different sizes. I have heard the experience of a mismatch described as “like throwing a banana up a close”.

Sorry, TSFM, but maybe a thought for those who wish for the return of the Old Firm.
