Joey Barton on as a sub for Burnley – and then scores!

Couldn’t make that stuff up. Sods law from a TRFC perspective, but I suppose it’s just yer luck.

Actually there is – looking at it with fresh eyes after a few months – a rather amazing outcome to Darryl’s indiscretions.

To quote from John Clark’s account of the meeting;

I referred to the 5-way Agreement, and made the point that two entities other than league or SFA representatives were signatories to that agreement: RFC (IL) and Mr Green’s new club. The two could not be one.

Mr Broadfoot said that was a matter of opinion.

I said that it was rather a matter of fact.

Amazing that from the “SFA’s” perspective that OCNC is NOT a matter of fact or article of faith, but one of “opinion”.

At the time I took that to be an implicit rejection of JC’s position, but in fact it is a rather considered failure/refusal to commit.

The SFA’s stance on Doncaster’s view then is just this; ‘that is his opinion – not in any way to be confused with a fact’.

If the SFA were really nailing their colours to the same club myth, one would have thought that Darryl, especially the light of his own allegiances (which he is perfectly entitled to hold by the way), would have contradicted John’s statement completely.

He didn’t do that.

Funny how things can seem so different after a second look.

Zero doubt in my mind that Traynor is the puller of the Keef string. In fact the DR guys as a whole (reading between the lines in conversation) are sympathetic to Traynor, hostile to Jack.

I suspect the TDs are not from SFM folk (remember the ratings are available to all manner of trolls). It is a disgusting world-view if made in earnest. A shocking way to score a point if not.

Just out of curiosity, has anyone noticed that Ernest no longer posts since we went to the trouble of creating a whole new thread for him?

Was pretty sure he wasn’t a troll too. Render me disappointed 🙂
