1) Urge my club to request an EGM
2) Clarification of NewClub status in the eyes of UEFA & SFA with regard to history & license type
3) Restructure leagues without the ridiculous splits, 1 up, 1 down 2+2 play-offs
4) scrap the SPL, there is no appetite for Scottish football outwith historical old firm past matches beyond Scotland, get rid of tv deals, football back to 3 o’clock Saturday. If you want to see your team go and watch them. Highlights are sufficient (we coped with it for 30 odd years inc competing in Europe)
5) vote of no confidence in ogilvie et al
6) install new SFA President & Chief Executive & Board with a rotating presidency among the board with a fan representative from each league forming an oversight committee
7) install a 3 strikes and you’re out policy for all clubs with respect to bigotry, sectarianism & racism from fans
8) ask SFA to create a fans forum & blog to provide unbiased football news trumping the MSM


9) Fairer price for product through the turnstiles.
10) Have option of terracing (like Germany)

Just heard on SKY stock market today state that Sevco shares are worth 76.05p. An increase of 1.05p .

Can somebody please explain.

Oh dear the smsm will be working harder than Santa’s elves trying to make this news from verdict of TAB sound as good news for the bears in Govan.

So are we saying basically they cheated we know and there is nothing that we can do.? 

Enough is enough
It is shameful and embarrassing that after RFC went into liquidation (all the papers published this event on the actual day it occurred) that they are considered or portrayed as the same club by the SFA and the smsm. This would not occur in any other country as there is no team that have such a biased smsm backing them as well as a compliant SFA  and we can all guess why. It IMO is not fear, RFC had an absolute embarrassing long term policy of not signing players of a certain religion and our SFA and smsm were well aware of this as it was no secret in fact it was upheld as a tradition of this club. Silence. Shameful does not cover it. There has always IMO been throughout history more members / ex directors of this club in high positions in the SFA than any other club. No balance. I would also  add that IMO the smsm has always throughout history had a very unbalanced high number of supporters of this club (although some actually insulted our intelligence by claiming to been supporters of clubs outside Glasgow) embarrassing.  Succulent lamb was no surprise it was expected.  The traditions of RFC seems to be IMO widespread within our SFA and smsm past and present.  Why has there never been an open discussion by SFA and smsm concerning, newco/oldco, Craig Whyte Trial, Dave King’s tax history in SA, Mr King’s fit and proper decision, possible LNS revisit due to new info, SC verdict on ebt’s, soft loans, ongoing concern in accounts, names of investors in new Ibrox club, Takeover Panel , the real role of Mr David Murray in the downfall of RFC, Offshore Game Report and on and on. Shameful but expected. It cannot be fear alone that these issues cannot be addressed in a balanced way. Our SFA and smsm have no shame and will always protect and promote this new club with all it’s traditions and values, which seem to have been carried over from the old club. I will always refer to them as a new club as liquidation actually took place of the CLUB.  Shamefully I actually did buy papers on that day,not bought any since I may add. 

Enough is enough
Edinburgh Tax Network on 14th Dec an address by Rt Hon Lord Hodge on SC decision concerning RFC.  Details below.  get in first as there could be a stampede from our smsm for front row seats
