Towards a More Professional SFA

Have we all to wait and put football governance on the back-burner whilst listening and reading the sheer junk that is spouted in the hope that The Rangers, any Rangers will soon get it right?  

Don’t be ridiculous.  No, we’ve just to turn a blind eye as they get falsely issued a euro licence, turn another blind eye as they leverage future income potential to grab competitor’s players and then all join hands and hope, for the good of Scottish Football, that they get into the group stages of something and then we’ll all live happily ever after.  Apparently.

Phil’s latest more than suggesting that the 16m revenue used to derive the 300k profit needed some “soft” assistance.

Not so much a statement, more a base attempt to S**t stir.

see latest Herald effort on Sports Direct for details (based on the first two paragraphs that I can see anyway).

I think that certainly in recent years, it would be much more accurate for it to read…

"When you pull on that jersey you are not just playing for a football club, you're playing for a PLC"

Sorry, me no understandy…

I thought the separation was an accepted given now no…?

Fergus McCann v David Murray
You have to remember Menace the “being out” and the positive test are not necessarily related.  As I understand it, Players 1-4 can be out and player 5, who is within just one of 1-4’s training bubble can test positive for the fan to struggle. 

Fergus McCann v David Murray
Agreed wottpi.  Aberdeen in a way actually called their bluff and said ok we’ll play.  The approach now seems to be that we’ll all simply avoid there being a repeat rather than address what I personally think is inevitable at some point.

and FWIW I still wouldn’t agree with giving “them upstairs“ executive powers to do what they deem fair.  They negated that possibility a long time ago.

Fergus McCann v David Murray
The issue would have been (I think) how does the SPFL order a game to be forfeit if “the offending side” is standing there ready to play? 

What will happen if for instance in the hypothetical match City versus Utd, 4 of City’s players and families are pictured in Dobbies having lunch in close proximity and the pictures hit the Rags websites?  Or, as is perfectly possible, 2 from each side?

i assume that’s the purpose of tomorrow’s zoom call with managers and captains.

Similarly I’m not sure on what grounds the SG could act.  They can order the postponement, as they did, not the forfeit.

and of course, if City happen to be top 5 premiership and Utd are part time, is it even fair to apply the play or forfeit rule?

Fergus McCann v David Murray
Absolutely Homunculus, particularly the last line. Which is what I suspect will make it completely unworkable.
