Comment on Past the Event Horizon by normanbatesmumfc.

“Regarding a future insolvency event down Ibrox way, I believe it is Section E of the SPFL rules that is relevant. However (and I apologise for repeating this), my reading is that the rules refer to Insolvency Events further to an initial insolvency event in terms of these rules . As such an Insolvency Event would be the first in terms of the SPFL rules, it would attract a penalty of 15 points (and the New Club/Old Club debate would be body-swerved)”

I believe this is the main reason for the ridiculous haste in league reconstruction, which has taken us from 1 league of 12 and 3 leagues of 10 to …… 1 league of 12 and 3 leagues of 10. There was no real consultation or thought went into the rapid reconstruction and I have always wondered why. Obviously the move to 1 league body is a step in the right direction but the lack of reshaping of the leagues coupled with the “once in a lifetime” threat of not agreeing, left me very suspicious of the logic, (or lack of) for the change.

Think Copland Road tweets said Puma was a 5 year deal.

Note the criteria is 3 years membership NOT mean having 3 years audited accounts – a common misperception that has taken on the” a cockroach is invulnerable to a nuclear strike” legend that keeps it alive no mater how many times it is nuked by quoting Article 12″

Was this very problem not the main driver for the Sevco Friendly Accomplices’ determination to transfer the dead cheating clubs membership, circumventing this possible hiccup?

“now, the recent ASA ruling stated that the SFA had confirmed Sevco had received the SAME membership from RFC and therefore had CONTINUING membership

if that is what the SFA really believe – and appear to have confirmed publicly to the ASA, then we may well have an interesting summer should Sevco “qualify” via the Scottish Cup this year.

interesting times indeed.”

Part of me would like to see Sevco victorious in the Scottish Cup, (courtesy of a few honest mistakes of course) with a hurting vanquished Hibs as runners up. It would be priceless to see the SFA contorting/ignoring/changing rules where possible, or summoning Mr Bryson for clarity in their case to propel the Sevco into Europe. Failing that using the old “discretion” get out clause.

I’m sure Uefa would turn their customary blind eye and the desired outcome achieved……only to be trumped by an appeal by Hibs to the courts. Nothing would please me more than see the governors of our game squirming under oath in a witness box at the sustained questioning of an untainted lawyer working for truth and transparency.

I can but dream…………

AND, the beeb also described Celtic as Scotland’s biggest club!
While we know this to be true, the Klan will be raging.

The ‘Scotsman’ has a wee piece reporting that if Cataluna ‘secedes’ from Spain, and gets kicked out of La Liga,  the Catalonian sports Minister thinks they could get into the English premier league.Arsene Wenger, though, opines that ” We have to invite the Scottish clubs before we go for the Spanish”Who’s been biting his ear?

My understanding is, historically Catalonia included parts of South Eastern France, where many inhabitants of the border towns and villages see themselves as Catalonian, rather than French.

Therefore a more suitable “home” for an exiled Barcalona team would be the French League. Unless of course, money is more important?????????????

Despite the blatant need for a thorough review, with proper retrospective punishment and re-setting of results, for me as big an “issue” is the fabrication of continuity.

Not looking to open up the OC/NC debate again, but the upcoming Sevco v Celtic game at Ibrox on Saturday week may open up an opportunity to put this lie to bed for ever.

I am not sure what the Celtic allocation of tickets would be for this game, but say 5,000. Now the match will be promoted and tickets sold on the false pretence of Sevco being the historic cheating club born in 18 canteen rather than the true birthdate of 2012.

My question is, would it be possible for a group, (the more the better) of fans attending/buying these tickets, to go to a “small claims” court and request reimbursement of the ticket price based on the legal status of the club being falsely promoted?

There are many in the game and associated organisations, for whom the lie suits their agenda. However anytime this nonsense has come in front of proper legal scrutiny, it has been shown to be the sham we all know too well.

We know Sevco would not settle out of court as they are desperate for cash and of course are “no surrender peepul”. I’m sure many fans across the country would be only too happy to crowd-fund the challenge. Could this be one option to finally debunk the myth????

Time for a statement from Celtic supporters association.

To all those clubs, who fail to support Celtic’s demand for an extensive review and restoration of integrity to the Scottish game. Don’t expect the support of Celtic fans at your stadia in future. Why should Celtic fans support spineless, gutless boards who prefer to turn a blind eye to blatant corruption rather than join in the fight for truth, transparency and justice.

You’re going to reap just what you sow.

Oh and while I’m logged on, I thought I’d add my tuppenceworth to “Brown-toe-flick-gate”.

Anyone who has played the game will know, Scott Brown could easily have avoided his foot making contact with the Hamilton player’s face. So should he be given a ban for the offence? Yes. However I’m sure the compliance officer is only too aware, any ban could be appealed and it would be very difficult to prove the minimal contact was not accidental.

In other words, I believe he would win his appeal and because of this there will be no action taken.

I am not a big fan of Scott Brown as an individual, but realise he has the physical attributes to make him an integral part of the Celtic team. A bit like Leigh Griffiths, he often lets himself down with silly impetuous antics, which detract from the positives in their games. I also believe he will feel he has unfinished business with Neymar, (as possibly does Lustig) and a bet on Scott Brown to be yellow-carded in the match is as near a certainty as you will get. I only hope the red mist doesn’t descend in which case Celtic could well be facing and already Herculean task, playing with a man short.
