yes except by Charles Green’s calculations (500 million fans worldwide), 0.02% of the support amounts to 100,000 people…


That should get their petition read out in parliament 😀

Dad, why do some titles have an * beside them?

Well son, its like this……………
Is that why the club shirt has five asterisks on it?


Even Patrick Moore struggled to explain those 5 stars 😀

Is diversification not what got Hibs into trouble a few years back.

Page 10 of the prospectus says

“should the Company receive funds from the Offer, the Directors have identified other potential investments that would go beyond the Group’s strategy in the next 12 months, but which could further enhance revenue opportunities”

Missed that bit.

At a time when all sensible businesses are divesting of non-core operations they are looking to add to their empire. A wise man advised me years ago, “eat in restaurants and sleep in hotels, not the other way round” Generally businesses that stray from their day to day activities end up losing a lot of money.

I can’t believe that any institutional investor would back this horse unless there is some serious discounting going on behind the scenes. Max Bialystock is alive and well.

Very good, amigo.
A question arises, however. Who are the Easedales? Where did they fit in? Where are they now?
Counting the profits from the tenders that they have been awarded since they went “high profile”. Their “investments” in RFC were a small price to pay.

Succulent lamb is not only served to journalists.

If the club cannot be punished then it stands to reason the SFA has the responsibility to prevent the identified group from attending similar events…either by playing behind closed doors or witholding away tickets…

Within 2 games it will stop…that is how easy it is…unless of course you support racism.
When the offence takes place at an away ground, in addition to a ban on the travelling support, the offending club should be fined an amount equal to or exceeding their ticket allocation for their next away game. This money should then be given to the opposition as they shouldn’t suffer from the drop in revenue due to a ban on the travelling support.

The old Celtic Park did indeed have a Rangers end…………That was (like Hampden) the covered end 👿
The Rangers end at CP was covered in 1967. The Celtic end was first covered around 1958 – although it did not extend all the way to the front of the terracing.

If I was Kenny Macdowall and I wanted to get the hell out of Dodge with my full entitlement I’d leave the 5 loanee’s out of any future squads. 😈 😈

So no one in the SFA thinks the sectarian singing at the Sunday semi final needs investigating?? Really? It was heard in over 50 countries apparently. Do rules not apply to TRFC?
(Serious question actually, no laughing at the back)
The SFA will, as always, do nothing. Police Scotland have already stated that the VAST majority of fans were well behaved. However, if you break down the numbers, you have 50,000 fans attending. Split 50/50 gives you 25,000 per side. 20,000, or 40%, of one side behave appallingly. That means that 30,000, or 60%, behaved well. Seems like an overwhelming majority to me. Of course an old cynic like me would say that this was abusing the statistics but who cares about me when the truth can be so easily distorted to suit.
