Angus 15.58 :

If I may as a fellow ovine follower add to your Fiorentina point ?

Tonight Mura of Slovenia …

Well spotted! It seems that UEFA don’t pay too much attention to these things.

Mura is a better example than Fiorentina, in that they were evidently out of business for several months between old and new clubs – and UEFA still treats them as the same entity (and that in the face of the Slovenian FA’s decree).

Angus it seems you are at the 3rd stage of the Kubler-Ross model old son better take your shoelaces and hide them and get some prozac from your GP there’s a good lad.

Do what? Is this because I posted UEFA-related stuff concerning Fiorentina and the machinations successfully employed in getting them back to the top?

I’m not Celtic-minded, but I’m certainly not Rangers-minded, if that’s what you’re getting at. I am of an ovine persuasion, for the record (not that I’ve ever made any secret of it!).

I was pointing out that we may not expect RFC(new)’s claim to the history of RFC(old) to be thrown out by UEFA.

It was a conjecture, though not explicitly stated, backed up with solid fact.

Because it puts what may be seen as a slightly positive slant on the wishes of RFC(new) supporters in that regard, I get a sarcy comment, supported by 5 TUs at time of this reply.

Why?

It does bring to mind accusations of being Celtic-minded when anyone posts something not wholely supportive of RFC (any flavour) on RM or FF.

In other words, is this blog supposed to be objective – or is it just for RFC bashing?

Really, I’d like to know.

( Is it technically possible to scan a letter and copy and paste into the blog the way you can scan a doc and send it as an attachment in an email? )

You could scan it as a JPG, upload it to Photobucket and provide the link in a post…

The whole ‘UEFA dont recognise The Rangers’ thing.

And … further to my mention of Fiorentina, who re-constituted and fiddled their way up the Leagues from Serie C2 with help from the Italian FA, it may be noted that their UEFA page contains the history of the “old” Fiorentina …

Come on, Highlander. Are you trying to tell us that JJ and The Mensch are *different people*? 🙂

For an effective claim to be made it should be forceful and expeditious.

Trite comment: Try telling that to many 1970s TV presenters.

Real comment: Evidence gathering can take a long time, particularly where co-operation is not forthcoming. Justice is operated by heavy, slow-moving wheels.

A little light relief from the lad Mohsni (unfortunately “not a big name like Spanish Archer McCulloch”), talking in the Daily Record:

http://www.dailyrecord.co.uk/sport/football/football-transfer-news/rangers-defender-bilel-mohsni-id-3426558

I thought the poor fellow was simply a rubbish fitba player, but he appears to also be a marble or two short.

(P.S. Split infinitives, I love ’em. Use them whenever I can – it’s a nonsensical “rule” of grammar. 🙂 )

🙂 Surely you mean a Saniner? I spent many a happy summer day at Sanine beach, having walked over the hill fae Portsoy. Brilliant gun emplacement and tank traps. There was a great summer cafe in the old Church hall (I think it was) with a juke box and everything!

Upthehoops – I’m afraid that you may be taking a Glasgow-centric view there. I have a couple of excellent Irish friends here in Aberdeenshire. The only problem at all people here have with anyone of Irish descent is, dare I say it, when they’re part of the travelling community.

Danish – I also grew up in the East End. The East End of Portsoy. I assume that’s where you meant? 😉
