What a palaver to get in here: I suspect TSFM was only wanting to get Charlotte in by the advice offered above.
And I’m sure the forensic manner in which many contributors examine materials will have led them to believe the same, that is TSFM is most certainly Scottish, with a slick turn of phrase for the ladies. ‘Hen’ indeed! 😉
(btw, this is yet another test)

Move over Charlotte Fakes, I’ve got hold of a copy of an email purportedly from Charles Green to Craig Mather with the subject title “Ibrox, list of enemies”
Don’t know if it’s genuine, but it looks reliable to me>

Any Mods on here to advise? Can I cut and paste onto here?
I’d have to suspect that you shouldn’t put them up here, as that would cause those who run the site problems.
Maybe put them on dropbox, and post surreptitious links elsewhere? Or wait until someone with more savvy than me comes on to advise? 😉
The Existence of Laws
Regarding Rangers and their charitable leanings, remember this from Green concerning his side’s Scottish Cup tie at Tannadice:
“It has been decided by the board that any proceeds from gate receipts due to the club will be donated to the Prince and Princess of Wales Hospice Brick by Brick Appeal and Erskine charities via the Rangers Charity Foundation.”
I wonder if the proper amount of cash reached these two causes…….

Not been on here for a while, but some sterling work being undertaken.
When I’ve nothing to say, I’ll say nothing, but feel I should comment on ‘Biscuits’ Preston and the wee bit of criticism he’s had here.
He was playing a trick, having a joke, when he made out Warburton would have succeeded in the Perth tie. It was his personal parody of fellow commentators, one in particular.

I was driving past the ancient city of Stirling in the heart of our cradle of independence last night, having had an interesting day at Gleneagles. Anyway, I digress; my young companion turned the radio to a station which I was informed was Clyde 1 and it had a “good football phone-in”. I thought, what the hell, lets see what its like (not very good). They had Mark Burchill on and one caller asked about Livi taking the SFA to court to have the 5 points they were deducted returned to them in light of “the director having won their case”. I must admit I was unaware of any court proceedings involving Livi or any director of the club. Mr Burchill said words to the effect that he was aware of talk on the subject but would concentrate on winning at the weekend. My question to the super sleuths on this forum is this; is there any case in the works that might result in Livi being given a lifeline.
Livingston were deducted five points for defaulting on tax payments in season 2010-11. I think another club too were defaulting on tax payments around about that time, but don’t think the newish SPFL chief executive Neil Doncaster has had much to say about that.
This is what Doncaster is quoted as saying regarding Livingston: “The tax default and reporting rules are an integral part of maintaining a fair league competition.”
The caller might have been confused.

So, regardless of the joke fine, what sanctions have been put in place should Ashley continue to be involved in any way with TRFC outwith the rules of the SFA? Or do the SFA consider that the price has been paid by TRFC to allow Ashley (or anyone else who already owns another club) to be involved in the running of the club?
Livingston will have paid their £5000, but they were also given until 10th April for Neil Rankine to dispose of his share of Livingston and East Fife (which he denies having).
It’s noted that the SFA has not instructed Mike Ashley to dispose of any shareholding in the Ibrox club or Newcastle for that matter.

Jim Spence reporting that Dundee Utd have paid out 25% of £6.3 in recent transfer fees to unnamed parties as commission fees. Interesting turn of events and fans groups are asking questions. Do our resident Arabs have any more info about this?
There will be people better positioned than me to comment, but the BBC article is misleading in that 25% of £6.3 million is almost £1.6 million, while the fans’ groups are wondering about a sum under one third of that, a still not unsubstantial half a million pounds.
I assume payments to players, agents or other clubs (such as Queens Park) would explain the other £1 million.
What the affair suggests to me is that, as ever, it is difficult for clubs with limited amounts of fans coming through the gates to compete for success in Scotland, and also that Stephen Thompson, who I understand has not always been held in high esteem by sections of Dundee United’s support, has lost the confidence of the biggest supporters’ groups.

Livingston / Neil Rankine ruling published.
£5,000 fine and a registration ban. May be indicative of what sanctions will be placed on Rangers when their case comes up on 16th April.
I wouldn’t take that as a measure, as, and please correct me if I’m wrong, Livingston were deducted five points and fined £10,000 by the SPFL for failure to pay tax on player bonuses during the 2010/11 (Scottish Football League) season. The club themselves volunteered this information to the SPFL, which contrasts with, say, shredding evidence.
The SPFL is, of course, just 21 months old.
While the five points deduction and fine were not SFA sanctions, I’m still trying to discover if the old Ibrox club ever lost any points for failure to pay their debts to the government, before, during and after season 2010/11.
Don’t think they did………….
