Depends what cost base they’re carrying 😕

You mean it might just be the kids, a youth coach, and sandwiches on the bus? Wallace did say at the AGM that their current level of spending was too high for even the top tier.

Ok here is something to consider………Goosey has got me thinking………….

Nice to see the DK theme developed EC. Bravo. You’ve translated it into the straightforward.

He really has been a constant throughout. The season ticket plan smacks of the kind of play someone would make if he feels what’s rightfully his has been purloined.

Of course you have forgotten that hampden is not the SFAs to rent out.

Hampden is still owned by Queens Park, though operated by Hampden Park Limited.

Well that is what my memory tells me.

Correct you are Buddy! Never knew that. But if Ibrox clientele came knocking and asked for rental, would the SFA say, “That’ll be the day”? After all, it appears that they have a 20-year lease on the stadium, so maybe they can do as they please? Anyway, don’t want to Rave On about this first thing in the morning. DK may just be living in a Fool’s Paradise as LP & co hum Maybe Baby … er .. maybe Davie.

I’ll get ma jukebox.

Cheers @Phil. Informed hunches are better than what’s coming from most of the print and broadcast media.

Terrific call to SSB tonight on the hour mark on the podcast. David in Pollokshields talking about the corrupting influence of money on the game. He mentioned this with reference to the upcoming World Cup in Brazil and the reported slave labour and worker deaths in Qatar. He suggested boycotting these events. Great call.

Danish Pastry has indeed been absent of late. I will drop him a note to inform him of your plea…
Godmorgen allesammen. 
I’ve been absent without leave. Mostly following events via twitter (where I tweet far too much about issues not relevant or welcome here 13 ). Hopefully, there’ll be a theme park one day, based around these sagas, with various ‘rides’ (not all free, obviously, tee-hee).
Onwards and upwards.
PM sent to JC.

Fascinating encounter John. Interesting, too, that he agreed to meet you afterwards. 
Sadly, it appears not only the authorities, but also certain club chairmen have decided to take the path of least resistance. This corruption won’t end well. It’s just a pity not one newspaper will run the story. As mentioned before, it’s like fitba’s All the President’s Men withoot the good MSM media guys. 
Still, I reckon the SFA are worried. And the campaign to promote the liquidation lie and the same-co narrative is costing certain folks a fortune. They’re all on borrowed time and borrowed money.

Morning all? Birdsong and blue skies in North Zealand today. 
John, I posted a response to your meeting with Regan. I was auto-informed it was ‘spam’ and it wiz flushed doon the virtual cludgie 🙂 Don’t have time to re-write again. But, summa summarum – bravo!

John Clark Meets “The SFA”
Bravo JC for the interview report. Been following reaction to it. Feels as though genuine movement finally being made to bring issues into the wider public domain. JJ is making a fascinating contribution, too, and quite often echoing sentiments expressed here for the past many years. And his sense of fair play and sporting justice is exemplary. Phil is still adding some deeper insights even though he has a momentous 100th anniversary on his mind, and a piece about that in the works. 

Not posting here much myself, but so many others far more capable do that. Keeping up via twitter, etc. 
Godt nyt år and onwards and upwards in 2016 (somewhat belated).

Two wrongs and a right

Happy Christmas Eve everyone on here.
Lovely post jimbo. Brought back memories of gazing into Doig’s Toy Shop on Duke Street in the weeks before Christmas — and the gradual appearence of Christmas trees in folks windaes. Certainly cheered up the black tenements and the dreich 1960s East End in winter. Poverty was a way of life for many of us East Enders, so dreams of Doig’s toys usually remained in the window of Doig’s. Still, selection boxes and annuals were braw, and oranges and thrupney bits in yer stocking wurnae too bad either. In those days you got on with it, Christmas wasn’t hyped up as it is now. I expect children facing poverty today, and who experience a ‘modest’ Christmas, probably feel it more deeply than some of us did because of the slick commercialism promoting a form of celebration not all can afford. 

As an exile with Christmas Day on the 24th in the evening, it seems a long way from Duke Street. But your past never leaves you. I think there’s a wee bairn in aw of us still oan Christmas Eve 🙂

Big thanks to all the excellent contributors to this blog in 2015. All the best you and yours this Christmas and onwards and upwards in the new year when it comes.
