THAT Debate, and the Beauty of HindsightAcouple of weeks ago we revisited the OCNC debate. This is a useful exercise to turn to periodically, for I have noticed how, with the passage of time, new aspects have become clear as new information emerges, or some ridiculous claim is made and then debunked. (more…)
Towards a More Professional SFAWhen the Scottish Premier League (SPL) and the Scottish Football league (SFL) merged in 2013 to form The Scottish Professional Football League, the word “professional” has been accepted as applying only to the football side of the business. However, should supporters, the ultimate paying customers, not expect the administration and governance of the game...
Small Price to Pay?I think there has been an appreciable shift of opinion amongst fans of TRFC recently. Unlike the ‘invest: speculate to accumulate’ rhetoric featured in the press and by ex-players, the ordinary fans are coming to the realisation that there is no quick fix. There are even murmurings that there may never be a fix which involves their club be...
Good Try Mr. McKenzieGuest Blog by Shyster and Shyster Anyone hoping for some “on the record comments” made under oath in the Kinloch v Coral case is Court last week would have been sorely disappointed. Like many people I followed James Doleman’s tweets from Court with interest. However, it became clear very early on in the proceedings that there was to be no...
End of the Road for King?Since Dave King & Co took over TRFC a year and a few months ago, there have been, almost daily, reports of the imminent demise of the club, or King, or both. At the same time, again on a daily basis, there have been those who proclaimed the imminent ascendancy of the club to the top of the pile. Up to now I have subscribed to neither theory on the basis ...
The Day I was on the Scotland U-23 BenchIt’s been a crappy year. If you don’t believe me, look at the two lists below this piece – full of people who have left us since Jan 1 2016. Some might say in a post Brexit/Trump world they are all better off, but that is neither here nor there. In addition we have witnessed yet another year of the “black is white – new is old...
Funding: Job Done!
Our fund raising drive has ended two days early after we raised our target of £1500.
Once again, the SFM community has circled the wagons to ensure our existence beyond the end of the season 🙂
And once again we would like to thank everyone who has donated, and to everyone who continues to subscribe.
We are always open to subs and donation sof course, and 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.
Thanks once again to everyone who has helped the SFM community financially and morally over the last five years.
If even a third of our regular users subscribed the minimum amount, we would raise around £50,000 per year.
Each year, we are looking to raise only a small fraction of that – and remember you can cancel a monthly donation at ANY time.
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.
