I don’t understand enough about the insolvency laws so I cannot really comment on the decision regarding Hearts; I would however hate to see them leave the league.

What I don’t understand is why the meeting was called in the first place as Hearts (the club) have not given any indication that they have a problem, are The SFA going to call a meeting every time a shareholder of a club has problems or am I just totally misunderstanding the situation?

I’ve stayed out of commenting on CF’s leaks thus far, but I’ve had enough

I am sure I speak for many when I say, shame that you reached that point where you had to speak up. Especially when making statements like “printed in every newspaper” when referring to CF’s tweets or documents.

You may be bang on the money about the intentions of CW but you ruined your point by starting with the same line we would normally expect from a phone-in host or American Policeman…..

“Move along please, nothing to see here”

If the material came from CW’s personal collection then it could have been either supplied legally (by CW or his wife as both had access to his computer and phone at home) or obtained illegally (Hacking or…. a recent female visitor to his place).

If however it came from Strathclyde Police then it could only have been obtained illegally (Strathclyde Police have not so far requested or confiscated the hardware required).

BDO falls into the same category as Strathclyde police.

Not me, I am extremely disappointed and although I would never ask or encourage anyone else to do anything negative towards their club, I am also thinking of calling it quits in respect to funding. That will not only save me on the shirts (3 per season now), Sky package and other assorted merchandising costs, the money saved on flights, hire cars and other travel will save me an absolute fortune.

I always thought I would rather be poor and enjoy everything about my club, now I am seriously thinking that it is not worth it anymore. I will always be a fan, maybe just not a supporter. I was just always of the belief that you cannot truly say you are a fan unless you are contributing as a supporter, and maybe that will lead to me being less of a fan. The fact they are eroding my passion for the team and sport is the most disappointing factor of all.

Let me word this better so it makes sense!
In my heart of hearts I think it is a new club.

Jimbo, that is just Whataboutary, why bring Hearts into it? They reached an agreement with creditors and exited Administration, with history intact!  09

Time for Scots Government to Take Bull by the Horns
With last night’s result and news that The Rangers are paying out more more on another new signing today, we have to question the finances over at Ibrox.

Let us be clear here, last night’s result could happen to any of our teams competing in European competition this or the next years, In fact, we have seen this many times just over the last years. All this crap about being beaten by a ‘bunch of nobodies’ or a ‘team no better than my local pub team’, any team can beat any team on any given day, that is, or at least, that should be football and sport in general. I am always nervous when going into Europe and I will be the same next week, no matter the team, stick 10 men behind the ball and wait for a freak breakaway in the second half of the game is a tactic (quite rightly) used by smaller teams since the invention of the sport.

The real problem in my opinion is that some teams are spending based on future earnings that are not guaranteed. It is ok to speculate based on your attendance figures, based on sponsorship and other incomes that also fluctuate but are at least pretty predictable over a season, we should not however, budget based on qualifying for a specific tournament. When they do not qualify for that tournament, it create issues that can lead to the club finding other ways to cover that shortfall, and in some cases, adopting practices that would be deemed as unfair. This is exaggerated when competing in Europe as the sums involved are pretty substantial.

This is not new, David Murray did it, Craig White did it (even trying to buy someone while in Admin), Charles Green did it, and now the current crop of custodians of the Ibrox club are doing it.

We have rules that govern the sport, they are there to ensure both teams play only with 11 players each, that only the goalie is allowed to touch the ball with hands, to ensure that only players who are eligible to play for that team are on the team-sheet for that specific game, to ensure that players or teams are not disadvantaged by persistent or aggressive fouling or when the ball goes out of play that the game is stopped.

These are basic, universal rules invented to ensure fair play on the pitch, every organization plays by these rules, even if some have different perceptions of what is meant by aggressive.

However, some go further, some organizations adopt strict rules to ensure the clubs and leagues are financially sound, that no individual team can do what they want to buy success, legally or illegally.

So the real question is: Why are Scottish clubs (via The SFA) resisting this?

THAT Debate, and the Beauty of Hindsight

Take the blinkers off UTH, it was not a post about politics. It was an attempt at humour because the headline has the term ‘GERS’, nothing to do with The Rangers but is very relevant taken in the context of this whole charade.
I never even read the story, I just saw the headline on ‘Newsnow’ and thought “Wow, a game changer”, until I saw what it was really about.
For record, I saved the screenshot as a picture so there would be no automatic link to the political story.

Looks like DJ is on message: extracted from his ‘ESJ’ column today, with my highlighting;
“…The fans have stuck by the manager and the team through bad runs before and they have enjoyed most of the football that has been on show in the last couple of years. But that goodwill only lasts so long and they need victories now.
I do think it is a must win on Saturday, not just for Mark
Ironically, this comes only days after the same man told everyone on air that Chris Sutton was ridiculous to state that Mark Warburton must win the next two games or his jacket is on a shoogly peg. It’s hard to defend the guy sometimes, as likeable as he might be….
