Comment on The Case for a New SFA. by parttimearab.
Interesting analysis from UEFA on the state of the Scottish game
Lots of detail and will want to look at the original report
Still as Neil Doncaster is delighted with the findings my initial suspicion is that we’re ******
As the qualifying campaigns come to an end in the middle of the rugby world cup I wonder if there is anything our football authorities could learn from other sports and indeed other national football associations
Football seems to be passing us by!The technical side of the game is beyond us.
On the technical side of things there was a wee interview recently with Ryan Gauld who explained that one of the things he needed to improve in order to break into the Sporting Lisbon first team was the technical side of his game……
Anyone who has seen Gauld play would agree that he is one of the most naturally talented young players to have emerged in Scotland in recent years.
We are years behind almost every other European country in this respect and it will take a gargantuan effort by the governing body and the clubs to turn this around.
Do they have the inclination and willpower to effect this change?
The Case for a New SFA.
Before non payment it would be likely that an approach would be made to HMRC for a deferral (for 6 months say).
Hector does have previous in this respect having agreed a deferral with Calum Melville 6 months prior to Dundee FC’s most recent administration (and with no security or personal guarantees).
Unlikely to be acceptable? Well maybe, but if your told there’s no way your getting paid if not…..
Would have to be run past the SPFL too…less of a problem I suspect.
Most unlikely but you never know….and money is going to have to come from somewhere IMO.

JohnJames is stating as a fact that the Dundee Utd players have been told that they are going into administration on Monday. I really hope that he’s got this one badly wrong
How can I put this – complete and utter pish – like most of his output

‘The Rangers’ I’ve often wondered how Charles Green got away with such a miniscule change to the name. As I understood it, under the phoenix laws any new business arising from the ashes had to have a significantly different name so that it could not be seen to go into liquidation, shed the debt and start again unharmed, name intact
IIRC (and it is a while ago now) permission was sought (by CG) from and granted by the liquidators BDO.
Perhaps someone else who kept notes or has a better memory than me might confirm this?
The Causes of Crime
The whole thing smacks of poetic justice you might say…
“Water, water, every where, And all the boards did shrink; Water, water, every where, Nor any drop to drink.”

Wrt Ranger’s reported desire to see strict liability brought in.
The cynic would suppose that they know the other clubs are dead set against it so it makes them look good while they know it’s never gonnae happen…
Even if it turns out that Phil is correct and the Scottish government will insist they’d still look better than the others and if it’s inevitable they’ve nothing to loose.
TBH I’m struggling to understand how it could be tacked onto ground licencing without local authorities rather than the SFA becoming responsible for enforcement and sanctions which I truly doubt they’d want involved in.
Finally you’d hope they’d simply decided it was time to put a cork in the choir’s gob for their own benefit and that of football and Scottish society as a whole – well a man can dream, can’t he

I note that while the panel rejected the…error…over the designation of the club (cough) they suggested that the SFA might want to tighten up on that in future
I assume the charges against Rangers were dropped as the consideration of Hibs covered the same ground?
