Bawsman @ 12.51

I only saw bits and pieces. Agree with what you say. England go for physique. They have always said, “a good big’un is better than a good little’un.” They miss the point that the good little’un is likely to be better balanced etc. The physique advantage evaporates more or less in late teens. The English still don’t get Messi, Iniesta, Puyol, Cannavaro, and don’t mention the Maradonna etc. etc.

As you say It takes the right people, hard work, and some investment. That will straighten the skew introduced by DM, paid for by others.

Unless you’re talking cricket, in which the team that’s in sends two batsmen out, and they are in, until one of them is out, when (s)he comes back in, and another one goes out to replace him (her). The person who has just gone out is then in, and stays there until out, when (s)he comes back in to be replaced by another (copyright I can’t remember who).

And so it goes. It’s a simple game. Didn’t Regan or Doncaster come from a cricketing background?

“Rangers men seem always certain on the rules but when it comes to the principles and moral values such rules were intended to convey, they appear to have lost their way.”

That sums it up exactly. How can they find their way back? They, including associates in SFA, SPL. SFL, UEFA etc., need to start with an admission that they’ve misread the map at some point, and go from there. I believe the rest of football is ready to accept that.

But there is, in my opinion, and I believe that the fans of any other club in Scotland would agree, no way that any guy who supported Celtic in his youth would have become a Murray creature.
I would agree, but then there was 007.

And the reason given for the non-punishment of Bougherra was that they had spoken to the referee who swore that at no stage had he felt threatened. So the new yardstick for judging the offence became whether the official felt threatened.

I think you’re giving me too much credit, but I’ll take it!

Taking a leaf out of Goosey’s book, I predict that when people can no longer deny that limited liability club is company is club, they will switch the emphasis to Team. It’s not the club that wins games they will tell us, it’s the team on the pitch. Right, so maybe the club’s dead, but the team lives on the same as every other team. Sure players have died, retired, been transferred, but that’s the same for all teams.

At last they’ll have something that’s true for every club that operates a team that consists of players on the park. But don’t anybody mention unregistered contracts.

Comment Moderation Thread
I believe you do on the whole a very good job scanning, moderating and so on, to produce a first class blog, frequented by excellent contributors. But could there be times when you need to reassess your input?

You deleted a post of mine. No big deal. You’ve deleted better posts than that. I asked you why. You gave as the reason that the point I made is debatable, and many would argue most definitely against it.

Not true and you know that. That is not the reason your post was removed. I await your apology

These are grounds for censorship? Do you actually believe comments are inappropriate because they are debatable and that people would argue strongly against them? On a blog on Scottish football, and in its current state?
Can you be serious?

Greenock Jack,
You claimed that PM got unfair criticism on here. Not having seen any, I asked you for examples. You come up with one only, that P. Murray is not leadership material, and then you say you agree with it! You’re not making sense.
