re my take on the Telegraph piece .
To fail to put in place a rule that prevents any club from overspending their way to a title only to suffer an insolvency event in the full knowledge that a Scottish Football boards discretion can still allow promotion is wrong and another step towards the downfall of our game .
There could possibly be instances where clubs may suffer such an event outwith their control but IMO that is not and never should be a reason to leave the rule (open to pressure commercial or fan base ) to any board .
Put the rule in place and let the unscrupulous egomaniacs know Scottish football is not a platform to have their 15 minutes of fame

Re Telegraph article
That about does it for me ,our game is now a sport in name only and the rules now in place are nothing short of a CHEATS CHARTER . 🙁

Dear Mr Bankier
If, as has been stated Celtic have yet again failed to move the Res 12 issue forward in any meaningful way after yet another AGM then I am left with the conclusion that the club is complicit in what has went on in 2011/12 . Also with the way DK is running the new club over in Govan ,it may not be long before they need another financial helping hand .If so can any Scottish football supporter be confident that those in charge of our game (clubs too) will not provide a revenue stream with the laughable excuse that it's for the good of the Scottish game . It looks very much to me that this issue has shone a light into something club chairmen and the SFA/SPL don,t want the paying supporters to know about . The way the Res 12 issue has been dealt with by Celtic and other clubs leads me to believe that they are all involved in a cover up .

Dear Mr Bankier
Could it be that it was just a coincidence  Scottish football witnessed the year of the "honest mistakes"2010/11 , knowing what we know now ,I have my doubts .


It looks like ragers 1872 's only chance of existence was CL revenue and the only way of having a chance of CL revenue was as league winners . If that were the case ,why would the SFA deny them the licence .

What if  the perilous state of the finances over in Govan led to decisions being made in order to give a lifeline to a club who died anyway due to circumstances outwith their control (FOOTBALL RESULTS OUTWITH SCOTLAND ) .

Could it happen ,who knows ? but the delay in investigating the issue properly does nothing to ease supporters doubts

With that in mind ,how likely is it that sevco 2012 will meet the FFP criteria for next season .

Some have mentioned that they think the regular rants from statement o'clock for the most trivial gripes are more of the distraction plan to keep people's eyes of the real issues over Govan way .


What if ?,,,,,,,

a new club that had to abide by the rules of FFP would not be able to realise their high risk business plan .


the club tried to circumvent the FFP rules by say ,inflating other costs ,say sponsorship or maintenance costs that could then be used to pay wages they could otherwise not afford ,would that be breaking the FFP rules ?.


I am sure though if a club  spent say ,over 4,5.or £6m on maintenance people would notice it ,you could expect maybe heavy machinery ,major works lots of workmen on site ,work possibly staggered over an extended period as to avoid disruption to customers .


Then again I know nothing of building costs or plant hire so maybe there could be expensive  MAJOR works done with behind the scenes . Although if it were my club ,I think I would be shouting it from the rooftops as a good news story of my commitment yo upgrading my ground
