For anyone from the media to declare that he doesn’t have an hour of his time to do research, as simple as reading a document, is quite extraordinary in it’s lack of awareness of how it paints him as a ‘professional’.

What struck me was the fact that he was in a discussion with a customer, or at least a potential customer. in a conversation being viewed by thousands of potential customers on a public forum.
It seems to me that this “journalist” has lost all sense of where, in the end, his wages come from. Someone takes the considerable trouble to research a story and hand it to him on a plate, and his reaction is simply  a downright rude put-down. And this from someone in an “industry” that is currently circling the plughole. Small wonder the SMSM is heading down the drain.

Sorry folks, I got it wrong. The reference to JJ’s alleged sister is still there on John Stevens’ blog. Here is the relevant paragraph-

He also claimed that he came from a Rangers family and had a Rangers background. But that also appears to be a lie as below you will see his sister smiling at a visit to Celtic Park

This is followed by a link to the woman’s facebook profile, giving full details.

I am posting no links to this utter filth, I just truly hope that this woman does not suffer as a result of this degenerate moron’s actions..

I hope that John Stevens’ (@pzj_1) identification skills have improved since his last effort just 3 days ago.
I had a look at John Stevens (PZJ1) blog yesterday.

The most loathesome aspect of this repulsive reptile’s so-called outing of John James was the posting of a  screenshot from the facebook page of a middle-aged lady from Greenock, alleged to be the sister of “John James”, giving her full name and surname, her place of work, a photograph of her, and a comment to the effect that the photo of his sister sitting at Celtic Park “smiling” was proof positive that JJ is in fact a closet Celtic fan. The photo was of her sitting alone in a stadium with green seats, whether CP or not I have no way of telling. She was, of course, smiling for the camera.
I have just seen that this part of his blog has now been edited out, but I really hope someone has kept a screenshot. Utterly contemptible vermin, that is as high as I can rate this lamentable excuse for a human being.

Can it really be the case that the last post on here was at 2.00am? Or that there have only been 2 posts since 7.42pm last night? Both by Causaludendi? What’s going on?

It seems that Broadfoot’s amateur hour PR ploy of leaking a 5 year old confidential letter from Celtic to the SFA has spectacularly backfired. Now it’s all out in the open- and having first broken confidence themselves, the SFA cannot complain about that.
Celtic’s 5 year restraint, in keeping their dealings with the SFA confidential, cost them a lot, not just my season ticket money, but  doubtless the money of a few others besides, plus, and more importantly, the erosion by many others of their faith in the club they have loved all their lives.
Now Regan is staring at the abyss. As I posted yesterday, even the leaking of Celtic’s 2012 letter would, in itself, finish him in any normal association. Can he now do anything other than resign? He faces pressure from the SPFL for an enquiry. He faces a Judicial Review which could extend to all shenanigans going back 10 years and more.
Even his own Compliance Officer, who I assume is a solicitor with something to lose professionally, will shortly be opening a few rusty old filing cabinets in Ogilvie’s old room. I was going to say look under the carpet, but that really is a stretch for an internal enquiry.
On a personal level, I can now resume my relationship with CFC, happy in the knowledge that my club were not ignoring the corruption, but challenging it in a professional manner. That feels very good indeed, believe me.

If it is correct that Celtic’s 5 year old letter to the SFA was leaked to The Times by the SFA’s former employee and current PR guru, Mr Broadfoot, presumably as the opening shot in a “divide and rule” campaign, then the SFA have some serious questions to answer.
Is that how a competent governing body treats one of its members? A leak of private correspondence? Really? Celtic should kick up such a stooshie about this leak that the instigator (and you can be sure that Broadfoot is only carrying out instructions) is identified and booted out of Scottish football.
There are clearly individuals within the SFA who think that they can act as they like with total impunity. They have learned nothing from the Farry episode. It’s time they were taught a lesson once and for all.

The Rangers Tax Case was seen as a test study into EBTs in football, and many media outlets think this is the tip of the iceberg, particularly in England. Surely the SFA should consult with their cross border counterparts on what actions may be taken? Arsenal have already settled an EBT case for their title winning year, so if we are applying the logic Rangers should have titles stripped because they were using illegal means of paying their players, surely Arsenals league titled should be taken away? And what if a number of other big fish in England are found guilty?
All English clubs involved either already have, or very soon will, reach settlements with HMRC. Nobody is going to court, because they aren’t stupid enough or arrogant enough to assume that they can win in the face of the facts, just because of who they are.
It was open to Rangers to correct matters by being open and honest with HMRC, and paying up, but firstly they didn’t see why they should, and secondly, they had no way of paying.
The fact that Rangers evaded more tax than they could subsequently repay just highlights the industrial scale of what went on at that club.
If the English clubs involved  took it a step further, as Rangers did, and concealed EBT payments from the FA, or had undisclosed side letters as part of players’ contracts, then of course the FA should take action.
The footballing offence is not tax evasion as such, but false reporting to the SFA of payments to players, and failure to lodge correct player contract details with the SFA.
What the SC judgement blows away totally is the “no sporting advantage” reasoning of LNS. Other clubs could not save on PAYE by using the EBT payment method. That is now an established fact.  
I’m pretty sure that industrial scale tax evasion could, in fact probably should, also lead to footballing charges along the lines of “bringing the game into disrepute”, but it will be snowing hard in hell the day that the SFA take that line with any club playing out of Ibrox.
