According to the BBC, George Soros, the man himself, is not involved with Charles Green, but a firm of fund managers, bearing his name, is …

… However with professional football clubs being also businesses, (well most of them anyway) there isn’t a lot sporting these days about the sport called football. It is my biggest turn off in our game and very sad indeed to watch at times.

Excuse my flurry of comments but there’s so many good posts that deserve a comment.

Fara, there is still fun in football, but it’s mostly outside the corporate rat race. I switch off at the sight of MC and Chelsea fans celebrating the bought titles, even Man U have lost me. The joy of Fergie’s reign was the generation of kids he brought through and what they eventually achieved. But the word ‘eventually’ doesn’t enter into their thinking these days.

My biggest moments last year were seeing Scotttish teams live and on the box. It’s a modest league but the more authentic. Raith Rovers and St Johnstone highlights of the year, not to mention the re-emergence of east coast clubs and the saving of Hearts. Lots and lots of positives.

The only bit where I lost the train of thought, or where it lost impact, was from point 2: “At the time of he tribunal … In their view, then, no sporting advantage had been gained.”

Do you need those 6 lines? The argument flows better and is more concise without them, imho.

Good stuff on the principle of, ‘Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.’

There’s a 7.28 audio clip link further down the page. Charles in full flow. He’d rather stay and look after ‘is ‘orses but club is one of world’s best best brands. Shades of Rangersitis.

“Still people who will invest in football but money must be invested wisely … They’re trying to do a fund raising without accounts so people don’t know what they’re investing in.”

So he’s spoken to 2-3 people. Now senses club in dire straits enough to perhaps turn up again with borrowed money (from Stockbridge’s little company?)

He echoes a lot of what Phil has been saying regarding fruitless fundraising attempts in the City and £4m not enough. Seems remarkably well-informed for someone who’s not involved anymore. Has a feeling of Charles trying to be the preferred bidder to supply emergency cash.

But what price Charles’ return? A hefty one, if the form guide is anything to go by.

Danish Pastry has indeed been absent of late. I will drop him a note to inform him of your plea…

Godmorgen allesammen. 
I’ve been absent without leave. Mostly following events via twitter (where I tweet far too much about issues not relevant or welcome here 13 ). Hopefully, there’ll be a theme park one day, based around these sagas, with various ‘rides’ (not all free, obviously, tee-hee).
Onwards and upwards.
PM sent to JC.

Fascinating encounter John. Interesting, too, that he agreed to meet you afterwards. 
Sadly, it appears not only the authorities, but also certain club chairmen have decided to take the path of least resistance. This corruption won’t end well. It’s just a pity not one newspaper will run the story. As mentioned before, it’s like fitba’s All the President’s Men withoot the good MSM media guys. 
Still, I reckon the SFA are worried. And the campaign to promote the liquidation lie and the same-co narrative is costing certain folks a fortune. They’re all on borrowed time and borrowed money.

Morning all? Birdsong and blue skies in North Zealand today. 
John, I posted a response to your meeting with Regan. I was auto-informed it was ‘spam’ and it wiz flushed doon the virtual cludgie 🙂 Don’t have time to re-write again. But, summa summarum – bravo!


John Clark Meets “The SFA”
Bravo JC for the interview report. Been following reaction to it. Feels as though genuine movement finally being made to bring issues into the wider public domain. JJ is making a fascinating contribution, too, and quite often echoing sentiments expressed here for the past many years. And his sense of fair play and sporting justice is exemplary. Phil is still adding some deeper insights even though he has a momentous 100th anniversary on his mind, and a piece about that in the works. 

Not posting here much myself, but so many others far more capable do that. Keeping up via twitter, etc. 
Godt nyt år and onwards and upwards in 2016 (somewhat belated).


Two wrongs and a right

Happy Christmas Eve everyone on here.
———–
Lovely post jimbo. Brought back memories of gazing into Doig’s Toy Shop on Duke Street in the weeks before Christmas — and the gradual appearence of Christmas trees in folks windaes. Certainly cheered up the black tenements and the dreich 1960s East End in winter. Poverty was a way of life for many of us East Enders, so dreams of Doig’s toys usually remained in the window of Doig’s. Still, selection boxes and annuals were braw, and oranges and thrupney bits in yer stocking wurnae too bad either. In those days you got on with it, Christmas wasn’t hyped up as it is now. I expect children facing poverty today, and who experience a ‘modest’ Christmas, probably feel it more deeply than some of us did because of the slick commercialism promoting a form of celebration not all can afford. 

As an exile with Christmas Day on the 24th in the evening, it seems a long way from Duke Street. But your past never leaves you. I think there’s a wee bairn in aw of us still oan Christmas Eve 🙂

Big thanks to all the excellent contributors to this blog in 2015. All the best you and yours this Christmas and onwards and upwards in the new year when it comes.
