Green is new to this environment and will be given a reminder about future conduct.
McCoist is not new to this environment and will be given a reminder about future conduct.
======================
Think you maybe correct about Green: suspended punishment ?

But McCoist ?
Will be very interesting so see how he is treated – and especially as it has recently become public knowledge that the Police had allegedly foiled an arson attack at Raith Rovers.

I think a lot of people – myself included – ‘absolutely’ believed that this was an all time low by McCoist – and he showed total disregard for the safety of others – and their families.

He is a disgrace.

Will the SFA seriously misjudge the public mood yet again ?

Looks like the Sevco fans are planning to turn up at Hampden tomorrow to support Green, [per RM].

Also some suggestions to voice their displeasure at Regan… 🙄

Should they not be cheering Regan ?!

Well I suppose any pressure on Regan can’t be bad ?

‘In the first instance, Regan could jettison Ogilvie to try and avoid a vote
——-
Unfortunately, Regan is just the monkey. CO is the organ-grinder! Remember, Regan is just a hired hand, his bosses are the SFA Board. It’s more likely that Ogilvie would throw Regan to the lions ( and what about that daft story about the Essex ( non-beancounting) lion) tosave his own skin.
===========
If that is indeed the reality – then Regan is even more unaware/stupid than I thought !

So Ogilvie will leave only when it suits his own, personal agenda.

Perhaps to take up a UEFA post as someone else suggested earlier ?

And then Regan will be left to take the flak before he is turfed out ?

Regan must have low career expectations post-SFA.

‘StevieBC @ 20:11

I don’t know the mechanics of the vote, but the clubs should, in my opinion be able to call the shots with all of this….”
——
…So, if , for example, the wonderful Turnbull could talk another 9 SFA members into requisitioning an EGM to slate Regan, then useful moves might begin to be made to effect a more general clear-out of existing office-holders of the SFA…
================================================

Exactly: even if Sir Turnbull simply made it known in the MSM that he was canvassing support amongst fellow SFL Chairmen, then that might be enough to instigate SFA action.

In the first instance, Regan could jettison Ogilvie to try and avoid a vote…

It Is Better To Offer No Excuse Than A Bad One
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.


It Is Better To Offer No Excuse Than A Bad One
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
