Bravo on the the Perth gathering. Glad it was a success.

Regarding Gerry M. of SSB, I felt he was and is, mostly, an ok host. I saw the exchange with Auldheid, but Gerry is not planning on rocking any boats. More’s the pity. Journalism is dying on its feet. Paid propagandists have taken over and will write any story, promote any cause, for dosh.

A let-down from both Gerry and Hugh K. is the way they’ve talked down the Petrofac in the past week. Here’s a sponsor for Scottish football not attached to betting and gambling and Gerry was clueless as to what Petrofac actually did, while Hugh referred to the tournament as a mere ‘bauble’. With that kind of media backing, why would a sponsor embrace the game? For everyone outside the top tier the Petrofac is surely a cup clubs and their fans value and really want to win.

I noticed Molde started with 9 Norwegians, 1 Finn, and 1 Swede. More or less a team of native Norwegians from a home-grown setup. I think I counted 5 Scots in Celtic’s starting line-up, I’m not sure if any of them came through Celtic’s own ranks. But it did strike me once again, as it did after Malmö away, that Scandinavian teams appear to be getting more value for money via their wage bill and in-house coaching. 
This concludes the voting of the Danish jury 02

The Case for a New SFA.
‘Gotcha!’ Woodstein, as a young American waitress said to me the other day.

Kind of embarrassing for the legal eagles to lose a case to his type.

Otherwise amazed to find an HD stream from the Sports Direct Sevcodrome on something called Sportsnet World which is part of my subscription. Not a huge crowd. Seems a pity the Falkirk v Hibs match wasn’t chosen. More of a contest, you’d think.

Latest: Bairns 0 Hibees 0; 5-Way Sevco 5088/Scotland 0 Tony Macaroni Arena XI 0 🙂


The Case for a New SFA.
@easy, that John Stevens character’s account is live. Bizarre type. I have him blocked but unblocked to check. Strikes me as someone who lives on a street draped in union flegs and a photo of the queen over the mantelpiece 🙂

I have noticed when I split a log, it can be rotten inside, and all the slaters pour out?

Indeed. It happens. Otherwise you’ve lost me.

Btw, I referred to and posted your DR image & neepheid’s letter (with a mention of TSFM) on twitter. Clumps picked up on it, among others. So bravo!

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.
