As for Hibs being punted out of Europe in favour …

Comment on The Offline Game by StevieBC.

As for Hibs being punted out of Europe in favour of TRFC: despite the continuing corruption emanating from Hampden over the years, this would be a step too far / too public, IMO.  
But I’m sure it’s being discussed / encouraged as a possible option by those whose aim is to do everything possible…
“for the good of Scottish football” !  22

However, the totally mental TRFC statements, [TWS & TBS, (c) Tris 2016], and the supportive and biased coverage from their lapdogs in the SMSM – perhaps betrays the level of desperation in Govan?

Mibbees a Euro route was what King was banking on to help buy some time to stabilise the ship – and to try and get Ashley off his back?  

Looks like Hibs have gone off script – after a very long 114 years – and have ‘disrespectfully’ messed up RIFC’s/TRFC’s financial planning !

CHARLIE_KELLYJUNE 8, 2016 at 17:32 … The SFA are actually aliens who helped fake the moon landings or something…
==============================
I think there is a consensus that any alien life forms found on planet Earth would be of a significantly more advanced level of evolution and intelligence.

…which most definitely rules out anyone on the 6th floor at Hampden.

Mibbees the blazers are not “alien”, but they’re definitely estranged… 09

I read about the lines for buying ST’s at Parkhead.
Don’t know how reliable this Twitter account is, but it’s quoting 50K+ ST’s expected to be sold.

If that is correct, then the gamble to push the boat out for a decent manager has already paid off for CFC ?

But will PL interpret this increased interest as validation that the game is ‘moving on’ – and further rocking of the boat in Scottish football is not necessary – well, from his perspective anyway ?

And PL’s financial/management reporting should keep Desmond satisfied / detached ?

Just watched the 81 seconds clip of Regan re: Res.12 advert etc.
I watched it muted, to observe his body language.

Regan looked tense, [IMO], lots of blinking, a bit of shifting about in his seat…but unfortunately the eagerly awaited ‘scratching of the nose’ didn’t happen: must have had his hands clasped together, just in case.

And he seems to have lost a fair bit of hair on his napper since his appointment !

At least the adverts have pushed the SFA to make some sort of public response – even if the Scottish football fans are not at all convinced with the SFA’s version of the ‘truth’.

Well done again to the Requisitioners: they’ve proved to the the SMSM that they’re not just your average Internet Bampots !

Just a wild idea…

But, what if King declared himself bankrupt?
[Well in a court recently, he did claim he was ‘penniless’].

Of course anyone who knows of the glib and shameless one would assume King would have assets hidden, or in his wife’s name – a la wee Bazza?

Would bankruptcy effectively kill off the TOP sanctions?

At this point it seems that King’s reputation is ruined in Scotland – and with the bears and even with the SMSM?

King’s time is up playing charades as ‘the Rangers saviour’, and he must – you would think – be thinking about preserving his remaining wealth as he approaches retirement…?  09

Mibbees after 20 years of failure, the national team and the SFA don’t deserve a dedicated, national stadium?

And Hampden is simply not worth keeping as a football venue for mainly sentimental reasons, IMO.

CO, I think Phil’s scoop about the manner of Nicholl’s appointment deserves a: Wow Just Wow!
It displays how dysfunctional the management structure at Ibrox has become, and you would think, it is a massive red flag.
[Apart from having no cash.]

I also have my fingers and toes crossed that in 2018 my £20 bet on TRFC finishes bottom 6 comes in – with the help of an Admin. event.

[Thanks to fellow Bampots for the tip: interestingly Sky wouldn’t accept a £50 bet for a 150/1 long shot…]

All the best for 2018 Bampots!

And just have to add this headline from the esteemed DR, so it must be true;

“Bluenoses out of joint as Rangers pub to be turned into gay sauna’s bar”

Couldn’t possibly comment on the article…but a couple of sentences did jump out as sounding familiar;

“…Annie Millers was one of Glasgow’s most hardcore Rangers haunts and it was a real shock for a lot of fans when it closed last year.
A lot of drinkers were hoping that someone might rescue the pub so it could reopen as it was before. This definitely won’t happen now…

Guessing it’s quiet as the Bampots have been out watching the footy…or getting dragged around the shops by their better half for the sales ?!

Wife told me last night about the Dembele ‘sale’.
Immediate reaction was that it was nonsense from the SMSM.

There ‘could’ be some truth in it: e.g. an off-the-record tip from either CFC or Dembele’s agent, perhaps to simply instigate a bidding war ?

But, my initial reaction to any big story is to always doubt the SMSM’s veracity: the lamb munchers were exposed a long time ago…and it’s a surprise that the DR in particular is still on sale in hard copy format. 

If he is sold for X millions, how will the SMSM / Level42 spin that as ‘bad news’ for CFC…and bad for Scottish football ?  22
