the phrase fool me once, shame on you, fool me twice, shame on me comes to mind

The actual full 12 inch version of that statement is

” fool me once, shame on you, fool me twice, shame on me, fool me three times, WATP”

They may score 3 in the time between this post and the end of the game (possibly with some assistance) but this result v the 2nd bottom team in the division at home isnt doing anything for the last remaining Spiv

Ally will want to know if the new FD takes sugar and milk in his tea.

So Tom English is giving up his job for voluntary redundancy

Here is an idea Tom, go out on Sunday all guns blazing, you know like Jim Traynor did.

However do it without the Rangeritis chip on the shoulder that Traynor did.

You know the truth, you know the absurdity of everything that has happened these last 30-36 months or so. Lay it out for all to see.

Yes you will get pelters from Sevconia that you are just a tired old Rangers hating Irishman, but you will get a lot of people who believe that everything that comes from the pen of broadsheet journalists is true, finally seeing the information laid bare that very few people get to see who don’t go looking for it

Look Back to Look Forward
There was a tweet sometime back from an account that asked the question:

Would you buy a Scottish sports daily newspaper?

I replied that their chance of success might hinge on whether they report the facts in the Rangers story or the sugar coated PR drivel every other paper came out with

They never replied.

John Clark Meets “The SFA”
BD. The bookies do not gamble on who will win and do not calculate their odds on that assumption. It is simply a calculation reached on the the basis of how much has been wagered. If you want your team to be favourite, just pop into the bookies and put a few grand on them, because that is the only thing it reflects.


Bookies price up the chance in their opinion of something happening, subsequent wagering will affect price moves to an extent. Ie if one bookie has taken enough of one team they will duck under the others to ensure those wanting to back that team will go elsewhere, but the prices reflect the chance of success far more than how much money is taken 

If any price is ever even remotely wrong, algorithms will point it out to the big syndicates and it will quickly be taken and the price will correct quickly.

Two wrongs and a right
Brentford have accepted a bid from Leeds United for Toumani Diagouraga.Rangers have been desperate to land the Bees midfielder this month, but have so far failed to meet his price tag.And Leeds have jumped to the front of the queue for the Frenchman after agreeing a fee with their Championship rivals.Diagouraga is one of the longest-serving players at Griffin Park but is in the final 18 months of his contract.

Two wrongs and a right
Off the top of my head I cant remember a live lower league match that didnt involve Rangers, or an Edinburgh derby in the 3 and a bit years of coverage. (Not incl the Alba coverage, just Sky/BT)

Was Falkirk v Hibs the first?

Two wrongs and a right
Real Madrid and Atletico handed 1 year transfer bans starting after this one.

The Record and Evening Times will report that if either wants Waghorn, they have 17 days to do so
