Time for Scots Government to Take Bull by the HornsIn the aftermath of the recent election and whilst those of us who voted one way are still hoping that our way continues to count, the horse trading has begun.

Funding: August Appeal Under Way!

We have sent an email to all subscribers with details of the appeal, and we hope you can help.
And once again we would like to thank everyone who has donated, and to everyone who continues to subscribe.
If you would like to help us in our task, please visit our donations page and make a donation or subscribe – small or large. You can send money quickly and easily via PayPal, or transfer directly to the SFM bank account.

SFM is an online community whose members are drawn from fans of all Scottish Football clubs.
Its overriding goal is to see sporting integrity restored to paramountcy in Scottish Football.
To help achieve that SFM will seek to ask the questions that the mainstream media consistently fail to ask of the authorities, who in turn consistently fail to govern the sport in accordance with their own rules.
SFM is funded by donations from its members, and has no links to any football club or other organisation.
