How’s the match ticket/match programme for a contender for most reliable indication?!…
===================================
Thanks for that BB, but the publicly available info. was discounted at the time.
It’s the team sheet details which are significant: but I’m guessing we will never find out.

Thanks for that it brought back memories for me of how I used to try and hit the ball with the outside of my foot to get that curving pass like Beckenbeuar, never quite managed it…
=========================================================
bb, as a teenager totally besotted with football I learned a highly effective way to curl and spin the ball by accident.

One day I ‘borrowed’ a volley ball from school and took it home. I quickly realised that it was great [light] for bending the ball outrageously – and for flicking the ankle when striking the ball to put even more height/spin on the ball.

Eventually the skills learned where then relatively easy to apply to a normal match ball.

Volley balls are not great in windy conditions because of their lightweight – and use on a gravel pitch just destroys the ball quickly.

But in all seriousness, for a young kid, using a volley ball is a great, additional learning tool – as a normal match ball can still be too heavy – and frustrating – for a youngster to develop these eye-catching passing/shooting skills.

And that’s my football tip for today, thank you very much… 🙄

“THE Rangers supporters trust fund goes ‘live’ tomorrow…

Gers fans can now pledge their cash if they wish…”
=========================================
As an impatient, pedantic Bampot – I can’t wait until tomorrow !

As we have discussed previously, I still can’t believe that this Trust idea is doable.
But is the use of the word ‘pledge’ the key ?

Like when they have TV charity telethons, pledges are made to donate – but these pledges are to create the initial ‘Total Raised’ – but they aren’t always followed up with the actual monetary donation ?

Is the initial phase simply to collect ‘pledges’, [not money], to force TRFC into co-operating with DK ?

…and is the timing of the ‘go live’ on the same day as IA’s court case just coincidental ?

Celtic v. Rangers in Dubai…
=======================
In a word : bollox !!

That’s the fluffiest tailed squirrel we’ve seen in quite a while though. 🙄

Just a wild idea…

But, what if King declared himself bankrupt?
[Well in a court recently, he did claim he was ‘penniless’].

Of course anyone who knows of the glib and shameless one would assume King would have assets hidden, or in his wife’s name – a la wee Bazza?

Would bankruptcy effectively kill off the TOP sanctions?

At this point it seems that King’s reputation is ruined in Scotland – and with the bears and even with the SMSM?

King’s time is up playing charades as ‘the Rangers saviour’, and he must – you would think – be thinking about preserving his remaining wealth as he approaches retirement…?  09

Mibbees after 20 years of failure, the national team and the SFA don’t deserve a dedicated, national stadium?

And Hampden is simply not worth keeping as a football venue for mainly sentimental reasons, IMO.

CO, I think Phil’s scoop about the manner of Nicholl’s appointment deserves a: Wow Just Wow!
It displays how dysfunctional the management structure at Ibrox has become, and you would think, it is a massive red flag.
[Apart from having no cash.]

I also have my fingers and toes crossed that in 2018 my £20 bet on TRFC finishes bottom 6 comes in – with the help of an Admin. event.

[Thanks to fellow Bampots for the tip: interestingly Sky wouldn’t accept a £50 bet for a 150/1 long shot…]

All the best for 2018 Bampots!

And just have to add this headline from the esteemed DR, so it must be true;

“Bluenoses out of joint as Rangers pub to be turned into gay sauna’s bar”

Couldn’t possibly comment on the article…but a couple of sentences did jump out as sounding familiar;

“…Annie Millers was one of Glasgow’s most hardcore Rangers haunts and it was a real shock for a lot of fans when it closed last year.
A lot of drinkers were hoping that someone might rescue the pub so it could reopen as it was before. This definitely won’t happen now…

Guessing it’s quiet as the Bampots have been out watching the footy…or getting dragged around the shops by their better half for the sales ?!

Wife told me last night about the Dembele ‘sale’.
Immediate reaction was that it was nonsense from the SMSM.

There ‘could’ be some truth in it: e.g. an off-the-record tip from either CFC or Dembele’s agent, perhaps to simply instigate a bidding war ?

But, my initial reaction to any big story is to always doubt the SMSM’s veracity: the lamb munchers were exposed a long time ago…and it’s a surprise that the DR in particular is still on sale in hard copy format. 

If he is sold for X millions, how will the SMSM / Level42 spin that as ‘bad news’ for CFC…and bad for Scottish football ?  22
