SheepWatch Update 191919

In Phil’s latest piece he states that a “hack at a national title” had an opinion piece inserted under his name – when the hack didn’t write it – or agree with the content ! And he only found out after the event.

A tough call, but what action should a SMSM journalist take in response to such devious, dishonest tactics ?

Yes: according to Phil he’s keeping quiet to protect his job.

Agreed, it can’t be easy at all making a living as a print journalist these days…but whoever the hack is, he has sold his soul, and presumably he could expect more ‘ghosted’ articles appearing under his name in future ?

Are the hacks now being removed from their ‘copy/paste functions’ on behalf of PR companies ?

A timely reminder of Pillar no.4 of the SFA’s 20/20 Strategic Vision;

“Respected and Trusted to Lead.”

The Hampden blazers couldn’t organise a kickabout in a football stadium…  🙁

Two wrongs and a right
Redlichtie – if it is an option, then Warburton should indeed really be talking to NUFC, to hedge his bets that he won’t have any warchest funds to buy anyone.  
But it seems that Ashley has recently let personal feelings affect his judgement wrt TRFC ?

But a massively overhyped – “better than Messi at the same age” – young NUFC loanee could be just the type of squirrel required down Govan way…  🙂

Two wrongs and a right
“…As Warburton attempts to bolster his attacking options, the will-he-won’t-he saga involving Michael O’Halloran’s transfer from St Johnstone rumbles on. Whatever the outcome, and whoever Rangers manage to bring in during the January window, Tavernier is adamant that any newcomers won’t just march straight into the starting line-up.

“Like everyone who comes here, he [O’Halloran] is going to have to work hard and try to get into the team…”
Well, according to The Herald and a TRFC player – it seems that the St.Johnstone player simply doesn’t have a choice… 🙁

Just a wild idea…

But, what if King declared himself bankrupt?
[Well in a court recently, he did claim he was ‘penniless’].

Of course anyone who knows of the glib and shameless one would assume King would have assets hidden, or in his wife’s name – a la wee Bazza?

Would bankruptcy effectively kill off the TOP sanctions?

At this point it seems that King’s reputation is ruined in Scotland – and with the bears and even with the SMSM?

King’s time is up playing charades as ‘the Rangers saviour’, and he must – you would think – be thinking about preserving his remaining wealth as he approaches retirement…?  09

Mibbees after 20 years of failure, the national team and the SFA don’t deserve a dedicated, national stadium?

And Hampden is simply not worth keeping as a football venue for mainly sentimental reasons, IMO.

CO, I think Phil’s scoop about the manner of Nicholl’s appointment deserves a: Wow Just Wow!
It displays how dysfunctional the management structure at Ibrox has become, and you would think, it is a massive red flag.
[Apart from having no cash.]

I also have my fingers and toes crossed that in 2018 my £20 bet on TRFC finishes bottom 6 comes in – with the help of an Admin. event.

[Thanks to fellow Bampots for the tip: interestingly Sky wouldn’t accept a £50 bet for a 150/1 long shot…]

All the best for 2018 Bampots!

And just have to add this headline from the esteemed DR, so it must be true;

“Bluenoses out of joint as Rangers pub to be turned into gay sauna’s bar”

Couldn’t possibly comment on the article…but a couple of sentences did jump out as sounding familiar;

“…Annie Millers was one of Glasgow’s most hardcore Rangers haunts and it was a real shock for a lot of fans when it closed last year.
A lot of drinkers were hoping that someone might rescue the pub so it could reopen as it was before. This definitely won’t happen now…

Guessing it’s quiet as the Bampots have been out watching the footy…or getting dragged around the shops by their better half for the sales ?!

Wife told me last night about the Dembele ‘sale’.
Immediate reaction was that it was nonsense from the SMSM.

There ‘could’ be some truth in it: e.g. an off-the-record tip from either CFC or Dembele’s agent, perhaps to simply instigate a bidding war ?

But, my initial reaction to any big story is to always doubt the SMSM’s veracity: the lamb munchers were exposed a long time ago…and it’s a surprise that the DR in particular is still on sale in hard copy format. 

If he is sold for X millions, how will the SMSM / Level42 spin that as ‘bad news’ for CFC…and bad for Scottish football ?  22
