May I take this opportunity to wish all contributors and their families a very peaceful and joyful Christmas and prosperous new year…and I raise a glass to those dear friends who are no longer with us in person but most certainly in spirit…god bless to one and all…

Merry Christmas

I can’t put it better than that!

Time to put the pitchforks away, enjoy some family time for a few days, and also remember those who were close to us.

Merry Christmas

Forgive me. I’d forgotten about Luther!


He was a good player, scoring 27 goals that year. Lineker was 2nd with 26.

As long as you didn’t forget your wife’s Birthday in 1983, as I did, your forgiven!

Alas, it is not confined to football. But the biggest problem is that there are still people prepared to pay preposterous amounts of money to turn up. Usually to be treated like sh!t when they get there.
cf. £70-odd to see Rush at the SECC. Bad enough if you live in Glasgow, but anyone else has travelling and possibly accommodation costs on top of that.
I paid £5 to see them at Ingliston in both ’81 and ’83 (both nights!).

I also spent £17.50 to go to the Reading Festival in ’83. For the entire weekend. Including camping.

1983 must have been a quiet year football-wise!



Ah! 1983! Apart from the obvious wind up to Angus and Aberdeens most glorious and most well deserved night ever in Gothenburg, I think you know it was far from quiet!

It was also the year of:

Bob Paisley retiring with a League and League Cup double for liverpool

Jim McLean won the Scottish Premier League for Dundee Utd

Kenny Dalglish was voted both England’s Writers and Players Player of the Year

Charlie Nicholas was voted both Scotland’s Writers and Players Player of the Year

Lutther Blisset being top goalscorer in England

Aston Villa won the European Super Cup beating Barcelona 3-1 on aggregate

And more importantly, it was the Year of:

“And Smith must Score!!!!!!!!!!!”

Ah! 1983! I remember it well!

Looks like we are holding the fort tonight!! Good time for reflecting on the whole Shebang from start to now.
Minty is a shrewd operator. Thinking back to the time prior to the quid being handed over, there was a period of negotiations which went on for weeks. He called it “Due diligence”..Then fired in the “Duped” claim.
Not much thought went into that line. CW however has remained loyal where Minty is concerned. When it all busts the dam we will find the truth.

auchinstarry ,

It was strange that SDM took a long time before claiming he was “Duped!” Was it not just after the old RFC went into liquidation, and after Craigy Boy failed to pay the NI and VAT? After the S$£t hit the fan? When people started to question the actual relationship between SDM and Wee Craigy?

I think at that time our famous Knight of the Realm felt vulnerable to public criticism, or more relevantly Bear comments, and came out with his famous “Duped” comment in order to deflect.

It’s also actually quite intriguing that said Knight of the Realm is reclusively hiding away in France away from the Scottish Public gaze!

If I were a true Knight, I would be standing up in my brogues with Dignity and defending my corner, not cowering away in an EBT paid Chateux in France!

Duped My A$%e!

The Sat Nav was switched on when Murray flogged to Whyte for £1. It’s been a hell of a road trip, but like I said, it must be documented somewhere?

Waiting till Jan 2015 for a verdict, or sorry, start of the procedure?

Aye Right!!

That’s 11 months away

It certainly is or more.
As I realised today that’s the way it works.
Everyone (if you have the money) Gets their day.
Its the law.


It’s not Tough, it’s sad, The Law, that is! 🙁

However, JC @11:36, spot on!

Absolutely brilliant description of the history and present situation of this farce so far.

Someone might have said “A weeks a long time in Scottish Fitba'”

Why are we concentrating on a case that is going to be heard in 11 months time?

Some of the CF stuff looks genuine, some of it looks like propaganda. I’m not sure what to believe of it, but I am sure that many Lawyers are going to make a good living out of it over the next 11 months now!

I think we should start looking at the short term here rather than to next January!

Just a thought!

Re above posts on 5088:
Is it not obvious that Mr Green hasn’t actually gone away yet?


Exactly what I was thinking, Bangordub !

WTF is going on here? There have been 2 years to investigate this scam, yet 2 years on we’re seeing the same protaganists come and go as they please. The only constant seems to be AM!

I bet AM has a few stories to tell?

The whole scenario baffles me beyond belief,

I panic each month trying to pay my mortgage, but it seems to me that a bunch of suits are taking the absolute mickey stripping a football club bare to it’s bones!

Green’s time at Sheffield United proved he was a a chancer. Maybe this time he has learnt his lesson’s and now knows how to carry it out properly?

From what I’ve read tonight, I suspect something is brewing in the background. I don’t think it’s going to be pleasant for Rangers Fans though!

BTW, I noticed earlier that Mr Wallace was also a director of Garrion Security. That surely must set alarm bells ring down Govan way?

I’ve got a big question to ask.

Can anyone supply a Family Tree starting from the players upwards?

I’d like to know who the players Daddy is, and who his Daddy is, etc. Who actually is responsible for paying the wages?

Which “Company” actually has to foot the bill each month paying wages, NI and VAT?

I’ve read and learnt a lot on this blog about how companies operate. I’ve heard a lot of debate on how good HMRC, BDO, etc are. I’ve heard a lot of debate on how HMRC, BDO, etc are incompetent as well.

What I do know is that the SFA and the newly crowned SPFL are probably the biggest Idiots ever to go along with this scam.

Let’s face it, they were caught between a Rock and a Hard Place! Damned if they do, damned if they don’t!

Unfortunately, they choose the Long and Winding Road!

It should have been “Penny Lane”

The result?

Rangers now think they are Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds!

Really interesting debate tonight re-SSB. I agree, Keevins really does seem to be sticking the boot into Celtic for some reason.

Respect to Frankie though for doing the Johnstone Burgh 50th Anniversary Scottish Cup Winners thing. Gang Forward The Burgh!!

Ah! Keanie Park, good memories. I’ve got a really good soft spot for Johnstone Burgh.

Really interesting debate tonight re-SSB. I agree, Keevins really does seem to be sticking the boot into Celtic for some reason.

Let’s get some facts on the table.

Cup Ties are what they are, Cup Ties! It’s a one-off game, winner takes all, etc.

The fact is, both Morton and Aberdeen have defeated Celtic in one-off games, that’s how it works! Good luck to them.

Same as saying good luck to Maribor when they kicked RFC out of Europe a few years ago.

Football is a basic game, it’s 11 players Vs 11 other players. The team that scores the most goals wins!

It really is that simple, believe me!

Unfortunately, people like Keevins don’t like giving credit to the winning team, as he’d rather try and justify his living/ salary by slagging the bigger team who lost. That gives him bigger kudos, and get some of us hunting him down as if he has some sort of agenda.

He’s one of many Leeches with a Typewriter who couldn’t hit a Barn Door from 2 yards, but feels well qualified to dictate to everyone how bad football is in Scotland at the moment, according to him!

That’s the game they play in the SMSM. Keevins isn’t the only Numpty playing the game, we hear it nightly from the rest of the sychopants on main stream radio. They’re all determined to keep the divide going, as long as it suits their present careers, unless you’re a Numpty like JT who jumped from the Good Ship SMSM to the Titanic called Sevco! What’s JT doing now? That’s probably Hugh’s worry as well, BTW.

As I said, cup ties are a one-off, may the best team win.

I’m older now, but I well remember Cup finals from the past. Some were predictable, others were upsets! Funningly enough, and I don’t know if it’s just me, but I could probably tell you Cup winners in a certain year above who actually won the league in the same year. That’s what Cup Finals do!

The first Scottish Final I remember is Aberdeen beating Celtic 3-1 in 1970, I was nearly 9 years old. Derek MacKay became famous as “Cup Tie MacKay”, but my abiding memory was my hero at the time, Joe Harper, scoring with a penalty.

My next memory was in 1972, Dixie Deans destroying Hibs with a Hat Trick (6-1). He became my next hero, and I was privelaged to be his paper boy later on. He later also scored a Hat Trick against Hibs in the League Cup Final in I think 1974, 6-3 was the final score! Joey Harper scored all 3 Hibs goals that day as well, and ended up on the losing side.

I could go on for ever here, PT in 1971, Rae, Lawrie, McQuade & Bone, St Mirren in 1987, Motherwell in 1991, etc There are many more, Dundee 1973 for example.

It’s just a game between 22 players on a pitch at one time.

As I said, MSM punters like Keevins are on a Self- Preservation crusade, and at the end of the day, it’s up to you whether you want to be wound up or not by them?

Also, to finish, despite what I said earlier about remembering dates of Cup Winners rather than League Winners, League Winners deserve probably more credit, as they have gone through a whole campaign to reach the top.

Cup competitions are exciting, but it all depends on the luck of the draw, and how a team plays on the day, after all you don’t get a second chance uness it’s a draw and you get a replay.

I don’t understand why Keevins can’t give credit where it’s due to the team that wins?

As I said, It’s a simple game. The team that scores the most is the winner.

Hugh might like to look it up and grow a pair?
