Please someone (EJ) correct me if I am wrong but were Hearts under Romanoff not serial offenders with regard to tax and paying players wages. As far as I am aware the wee tax case was the first time the old Rangers came to the attention of HMRC.

I note that the BBC are reporting that Buckie Thistle could be in line for a points deduction due to an alleged ineligible player. Unused substitute Callum Murray was listed in the squad for Saturdays game against Fortmartine United. I do hope they have Sandy Bryson on speedial

Hmm, seems the wee Rovers did not use the Bryson defence in this case. if they had then they would probably still be in the competition.

In all seriousness though, the whole thing stinks to high heaven. One rule for some and a different rule for those who don’t pass the sniff test.

I note with amusement the following lines in the story

“Rangers chairman Dave King has announced further investment of £1m by 44-year-old Julian Wolhardt.”

“The fans’ group did not state the value of its investment in RIFC but King, on the Rangers website, said that Wolhardt and Club 1872 had “each made a £1m investment in shares”.”

Silly me I thought that for it to be an investment then the club would receive the proceeds from the share sale. Unless of course its an investment in MASH holdings. Words are very important.


Small Price to Pay?
Well Jimbo, I do hope theres enough left in the Jambos kitty to buy a new pitch. Looks like the builders have been parking the JCB’s on the current one.


Small Price to Pay?
Two football news stories caught my attention today. 
Having been rumoured all day, Raith Rovers formally announced John “Yogi” Hughes will take over as manager until the end of the season. This followed the termination of the contracts of the previous management duo immediately following Tuesday nights defeat at home to Morton. The conduct of the BoD at Starks Park has been professional this week with regard to the managers position at the club.
Compare and contrast this with the omnishambles on the southside of Glasgow where we have a BoD issuing club statements saying their management team have resigned and we then have said manager saying, no he hasn’t. All of this just a mere 48 hours before a game which could define their season.


Small Price to Pay?
Ooh, its back. Maybe not enough investment into their bandwidth provision. All these journos and supporters desperately trying to read the statement that Mr Warburton doesn’t know about.

Just refreshed my page. Its desperately slow. Just got a connection timeout error. The little raspberry pi in IT must be in meltdown.
