Tom English just put a spoonfull of salt in his tea.

I for one have just lost my taste for him.

Why the Beast of Armageddon Failed to Show?
As a society, we have not yet fully emerged from the time when professionally qualified individuals were assumed always and everywhere to be correct in their statements and actions.

This resulted in a populace which was deferential, trusting and compliant.

Few questioned any professional, not because they were accurate and correct, but simply because they were a ‘professional’.

And so was born the myth of the professional.

However, to state the obvious, professionals are human. They are therefore flawed.

Like the rest of us, an occasional darkness will choose to wander through their mind and blind them to the truth of any given circumstance – the same truth which even the simplest minded can see at the time.

In short, even the most intelligent, the most accomplished and the most fastidious of professionals make mistakes, and dare I say it, even glaring mistakes. While the common man shakes his head in disbelief.

So may we always celebrate the gifted and the clever – on here and elsewhere – and may they rightfully enjoy whatever reputation they have acquired, but please, may the truth always be placed above reputation and profession.

The FTT was crammed full of both reputation and professional skills, but did they come out with the truth?

Meanwhile the common man continues to stand and shake his head.

When Murray and gang have finished with their celebrations over the FTT ‘ victory ‘, they will turn away from the public gaze, look at one another and engage, without a word, in a mutual understanding that the con was successful.

Not even Messrs Mure & Rae don’t know it was a con.

Everybody in the whole country knows.

When you are innocent, you have nothing to hide.

Throughout the FTT, the Murray gang tried to hide everything.

Rangers/Sevco aren’t fooling anyone – except themselves.

Why the Beast of Armageddon Failed to Show?
Success you know brings confidence.

I wonder how confident CO and his gang are that they can get a result in the SPL investigation.

With title stripping and expulsion at stake, I’d wager that even now, CO is beavering away, concocting another devious plan to reverse our expectations in February.

So I guess that we won’t be seeing or hearing very much at all from CO over the next few months.

CO and Jack make quite a team.

Soon to be disbanded I think.

Q. What does Scottish Football and the Scottish Referendum have in common ?
A. They share the same media.

However . . .yesterday, the Sunday Herald declared itself in favour of Independence
which leads me to say;


Q. Can the Sunday Herald be a ‘Nationalist’ Paper on the front pages
while at the same time be a Unionist paper on the football pages.

Can the Sunday Herald say on the front pages – The Emperor has no clothes,
While on the football pages say, in unison with every other paper in Scotland – The Emperor’s new clothes!

(For those who have been away on business or holidays for the past two years – The Unionist club, RFC(IL) went into Liquidation in 2012. A new club was formed thereafter.
No mainstream media outlet in Scotland will say in public that that is the case.)

“The media should not speak with one voice”
(Editorial. Page 3. Para.T))

Writing in today’s Guardian on the theme of ‘The Third Scotland’,
(the piece is reproduced in Bella Caledonia)

Gerry Hassan, in para 5, says

“Glasgow Rangers FC, Scotland’s dominant and most successful club blew up, faced liquidation and is now working its way up through the lower leagues”

The Lie lives on

There ongoing silence on their plans to tackle the consequences of past poor governance and future proofing is puzzling.
Even a statement that they are aware of serious issues of trust and honesty besetting the game that they intend to address would be a start.

Have those in charge at Ibrox and Hampden had a Road to Damascus conversion experience recently?

Might I suggest, Auldheid, that it’s already too late for ‘issues of trust and honesty’.

The shocks, surprises and headlines of the future
are being created today behind the scenes and in complete secrecy.

Their silence is a sign that they are busy.
That includes being busy about things they wish to keep secret.
Like finding the cash to pay their bills – if indeed TRFC’s bills are being paid.

The awarding of the 2 cup semis to Ibrox is significant not only in itself
but also as a pointer to what else the SFA might do to support TRFC financially.

I wouldn’t be in the least bit surprised if ‘ The ongoing silence on their plans to tackle the consequences of past poor governance and future proofing’ continues well into the future.

As for the implications for Scottish Football in an Independent Scotland . . . . .

An Honest Game? Convince Us.

In my opinion only the chairmen of the clubs can rid the game of the compromised and the corrupt.

In my opinion only the FANS can rid the game of the compromised and the corrupt.

Only a united and organised nationwide fanbase – including Scotland fans –
has any chance of forcing reform at the SFA,

and that by means of staying away from International matches as a first step
and then Cup matches,
and so on till the SFA cry ‘enough’.

Is it going to happen ? I would love to think so, but I don’t believe it will.

For that reason the SFA and Sevco will stand all day every day
and continue to piss on the fans, just like they’ve been doing for decades.

The Chairmen aren’t going to sort this – not in a hundred years.

Scottish Football: An Honest Game, Honestly Governed?

If Scottish Football is as corrupt as some on here obviously think it is, I have to ask myself why they bother with it.
Corruption can be sorted so as to enable the re-emergence of the beautiful game – which the fans love.
