Whose assets are they anyway?

Comment on Whose assets are they anyway? by StevieBC.

Still nothing about last week’s events in the ‘News’ section of either the SFA or SPFL websites.
Going Concern about TRFC ?
HMRC win ?
Potential impact on The Championship, Scottish football, etc ?

Regan and Doncaster look totally inept.  
Even the lawyer Doncaster must be aware that ‘something’ official has to be released by the ‘governing’ bodies – even if it says nothing of significance.
And especially now that TRFC has issued a poor statement – and which references the SPFL Board ?!
No comment would imply that TRFC is running the show.  Oh, wait a minute…  09

Phil’s latest is quoting a source stating that any Ibrox plan Ashley did have, went out of the window when King appeared…and it’s now about revenge.

If that is indeed Ashley’s motivation now, then where will this take Scottish football ?

It can’t be good for King or TRFC in the short-term, and it might not be good for Scottish football in the short-term either…but it could prove to be beneficial in the long run for the game as a whole.

Don’t think I’d like to be in the sights of an angry billionaire – and the SFA better get it sorted ASAP as they/we can’t afford to be p!ssing away money on legal fees when we can’t qualify for the Euros or World Cup.  

Money which could be much better spent at grass roots level – to state the bleedin’ obvious !

easyJambo 12th November 2015 at 9:17 pm #I’ve had a look back at King’s major shareholder claim in today’s staement 
“As the one individual who was a major shareholder and director throughout the period that gave rise to the HMRC dispute”

So a major shareholder  …….. no!
eJ, are you implying that Dave King has been economical with the truth, again ?!
For the pesky Internet Bampots / Keyboard Clatterers / etc, it’s just too easy, and the fun has almost – but not quite – gone from exposing these characters as being, erm, very inconsistent.  
The Internet Archive must be a source of much frustration for all the chancers and lamb munchers involved in Scottish football.
The Bampots just might have their day wrt the SFA/SPFL/TRFC/SMSM dodginess.  
It’s taking it’s time coming, but fingers-crossed…it will happen eventually.
And when that does happen, we can then all choose to move on in Scottish football – to a brighter, positive, truthful, honest future for the game.

Whose assets are they anyway?
Can we expect a late statement tomorrow/Friday…from either Hampden or Ibrox ?

Feels like the whole RFC/TRFC saga has been ratcheted right up to level 11 in the last week or so – and something has to give ?

IMO, King is the weakest link…

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.
