SFA CEO, Stewart Regan’s last public statement exactly one year ago.

The original is still available on the SFA’s website:-

http://www.scottishfa.co.uk/scottish_fa_news.cfm?page=2550&newsCategoryID=36&newsID=9731
_________________________________________________________________________

Updated version:-

“Rangers have been part of the fabric of Scottish football’s history, but due to liquidation, can have no part in its future prosperity.

“The Scottish FA must act with integrity and with the best interests of the game at heart.
This will, however, require root and branch reform in which major redundancies will be
necessary.”

‘…Against this alliance…’

Could you put that to music? Has a certain ring about it, and we could do with an anthem.

I couldn’t – but I’m sure James MacMillan could.


Scottish Football and the case for a Bismarck!
TRFC, the MSM and the SFA stand together

a fortress of corrupt corporate governance.

.
Against this alliance

we stand together

supporters across the land

astride our internet steed

a force of integrity against it

for the soul of the game.

.
This is the way it is.

I won’t say one club because that club died, and a new one was formed by new owners. So it clearly isn’t the club. Logically then it must be the support they are biased in favour of, as they are the common factor between the old and new clubs.

Chipmonk, prior to Administration on 14 Feb 2012, The SFA favoured Rangers Football Club but I doubt they viewed the club as it’s component parts but rather as a whole.

I’d be very surprised indeed if the SFA has since changed it’s view.

Q. What does Scottish Football and the Scottish Referendum have in common ?
A. They share the same media.

However . . .yesterday, the Sunday Herald declared itself in favour of Independence
which leads me to say;

HOUSTON – WE HAVE A PROBLEM

Q. Can the Sunday Herald be a ‘Nationalist’ Paper on the front pages
while at the same time be a Unionist paper on the football pages.

Can the Sunday Herald say on the front pages – The Emperor has no clothes,
While on the football pages say, in unison with every other paper in Scotland – The Emperor’s new clothes!

(For those who have been away on business or holidays for the past two years – The Unionist club, RFC(IL) went into Liquidation in 2012. A new club was formed thereafter.
No mainstream media outlet in Scotland will say in public that that is the case.)

Writing in today’s Guardian on the theme of ‘The Third Scotland’,
(the piece is reproduced in Bella Caledonia)

Gerry Hassan, in para 5, says

“Glasgow Rangers FC, Scotland’s dominant and most successful club blew up, faced liquidation and is now working its way up through the lower leagues”

There ongoing silence on their plans to tackle the consequences of past poor governance and future proofing is puzzling.
Even a statement that they are aware of serious issues of trust and honesty besetting the game that they intend to address would be a start.
___________________________________________________________________________________

Have those in charge at Ibrox and Hampden had a Road to Damascus conversion experience recently?

Might I suggest, Auldheid, that it’s already too late for ‘issues of trust and honesty’.

The shocks, surprises and headlines of the future
are being created today behind the scenes and in complete secrecy.

Their silence is a sign that they are busy.
That includes being busy about things they wish to keep secret.
Like finding the cash to pay their bills – if indeed TRFC’s bills are being paid.

The awarding of the 2 cup semis to Ibrox is significant not only in itself
but also as a pointer to what else the SFA might do to support TRFC financially.

I wouldn’t be in the least bit surprised if ‘ The ongoing silence on their plans to tackle the consequences of past poor governance and future proofing’ continues well into the future.

As for the implications for Scottish Football in an Independent Scotland . . . . .


An Honest Game? Convince Us.

In my opinion only the chairmen of the clubs can rid the game of the compromised and the corrupt.

In my opinion only the FANS can rid the game of the compromised and the corrupt.

Only a united and organised nationwide fanbase – including Scotland fans –
has any chance of forcing reform at the SFA,

and that by means of staying away from International matches as a first step
and then Cup matches,
and so on till the SFA cry ‘enough’.

Is it going to happen ? I would love to think so, but I don’t believe it will.

For that reason the SFA and Sevco will stand all day every day
and continue to piss on the fans, just like they’ve been doing for decades.

The Chairmen aren’t going to sort this – not in a hundred years.


Scottish Football: An Honest Game, Honestly Governed?

If Scottish Football is as corrupt as some on here obviously think it is, I have to ask myself why they bother with it.

C,
Corruption can be sorted so as to enable the re-emergence of the beautiful game – which the fans love.
