Re: Mr.King jetting in to chat with Pedro etc.

Dave King is just super.
Behind the tough facade, I’m sure he is a jolly, generous, and likeable chap who simply lives for his football.
However, the criticism of him is unrelenting.

I think the Bampots should back off and leave this fine, upstanding gentleman continue with his sterling work at Ibrox.

Ah’ll get ma bucket… 13

Latest ‘DR investigation’ from our Award Winning Keef;

Scottish football’s pathetic TV deal is bottom of the Euro table
A Record Sport investigation reveals the extent to which the SPFL is underselling our game as chief Neil Doncaster gets set to negotiate a new TV deal…”

Except Stevensaph had already shared his Euro leagues TV money comparison with the Internet Bampots on SFM etc,
…about 4 years ago, [IIRC].

And his eye-opening analysis was typically ignored by the SMSM at that time.

The SMSM: learned nothing since 2012, and continuing to underwhelm supporters of Scottish football.

SPFL toast new sponsor as Glen’s Vodka backs Scottish football until 2023 SPFL chief executive Neil Doncaster hailed the partnership…


I see there is some mild criticism reported in the SMSM, but Doncaster, IMO, is confirming he is tone deaf with his comments.

The game has been screaming out for Gov't. – i.e. taxpayers' – financial support due to covid, yet it continues to simply blank the opinions of its customer base / taxpayers.

I'd guess the majority (?) of fans are uncomfortable with the national team – and our clubs – being strongly associated with booze, gambling, fast food, junk food, etc.

Extract from the BBC:

shirley, Blatter wasn't planning on a return to football next year…?!


"Fifa has lodged a criminal complaint against former president Sepp Blatter over the finances of a museum in Zurich, Switzerland.

The complaint relates to the involvement of Blatter and other former officials in the Fifa museum project.

It is the latest allegation of financial impropriety against Blatter, who resigned from his post as president in 2015 amid a corruption scandal.

The 84-year-old has always denied any wrongdoing.

Blatter is currently serving a six-year ban from all forms of football."

It was a terrible advert for Scottish football: a poor game which lacked any consistency of quality play from either team, poorly refereed…


I suppose 'beauty lies in the eye of the beholder', but I thought it was a great advert for Scottish football – especially for the neutrals.

Totally agree that technically, the footy on show wasn't the best – and neither was the match officiating.

But: 6 goals, a bit of argy bargy, controversial refereeing, individual mistakes, suspect goalkeeping – plus the drama of a penalty shoot out to make history, or not.

Too many times I have watched the technically gifted EPL 'big games' where the footy on offer was high quality… but boring as hell.

At least the Scottish Cup Final wasn't a typical, dour and overly defensive 1-0 game?

As this is the Scottish Football Monitor,

well done to the Buddies for their epic, totally unexpected Cup win last night.

Likewise, it's good for the game that Ross County also progressed in the cup with their own big win.

At least one piece of silverware will be leaving Glasgow this season – which is no bad thing at all, IMO.

J.J agreed: and who knows the full impact of covid on transfer fees – and the duration of any depressed transfer market.

I didn't read the full RIFC Annual Report or the full AGM notes, so may have missed it, but;

It makes sense for Robertson to state that a couple of players need selling each year: seems to have worked OK for CFC in recent years.

But, for a cash strapped club in the middle of a pandemic with few, young sellable stars in the squad – you'd think Robertson would be shouting loud about cost cutting…

except TRFC is desperate to stop 10IAR.

TRFC should be focused on short-term cost-cutting measures to counter the immediate Going Concern risks.

To state the bleedin' obvious.  indecision

Choosing to focus on winning the SPL title rather than focusing on survival is RIFC's choice to make.

…as our incompetent SFA blazers look on gormlessly… again.

If Robertson had an improved governance body as he claims to want, then the SFA would be asking searching questions of TRFC long before now.
