Comment on Accountability via Transparency. by ThomTheThim.

    I see that UEFA and FIFA are investigating the FAI, Football Ass. of Ireland, on their practices and governance  over the activities of their CEO.Would  that they had a look at the SFA in a similar way.

    Thanks to all who responded and shed some light into a situation where light was required, on my part.

    If the SFA are involved, then it must be questionable.

    Borussia…., Bill1903,


    Thanks again.

    If visiting fans is not a consideration, then the main concern appears to be the threat of promotion or relegation, should the new guys be eligible for promotion. Fair enough. 

    I can understand other top league clubs wanting a competitive league for their colts also.

    It makes the decision to scrap the reserve leagues strange.

    It also raises the question as to why top clubs have youth development programmes at all.

    They could invest in feeder clubs, where young players can be developed and the sponsor club have first option on the player.

    Effectively, that is what all Scottish clubs are nowadays, with the voracious monster across the border.

    Not sure of the SFA's rules, then who is, but, as I understand it, UEFA hold the home club responsible for any fan issues, citing inadequate stewarding measures.

    Given things which have happened recently if no action is taken by the SPFL, or indeed the Police then we are as well assuming they can now do what they want with impunity. 

    That will only get worse.


    Both the club and their fans know that they can act with impunity.

    It has been proven time and time again.

    Scottish football is in a Post Apocalypse era, since 2012, where an uncontrolled organisation and their marauding followers create havoc within the corridors of power and in the country at large; spreading fear of retribution on anyone who stands in their way.

    Perhaps those prominent, successful and highly moral supporters to whom Mr. Reid alludes, knew exactly what a morally corrupt organisation RFC were and had no intention of sullying their reputations by association.

    At no point does he mention the cement that bonds those high achievers, i.e., Freemasonry.

    I watched a game the other day where Waghorn(pen) was playing.

    At that level he looked a hard working, useful player.

    However, what was most noticeable  was the absence of any hint of the over physical stuff for which he was best known at Ibrox.

    You can take a choice of whether his new manager has taken that out of his game or it was a side of his game he was encouraged to use at his previous club ; like Cousin, Hateley and Morelos.

    When questioned about Alfredo's "commitment", his manager said that he "plays on the edge and you don't want to take that from his game."

    In my honest opinion, he plays, not on the edge, but over the top, to a place where rules don't exist.

    Ten in a row means absolutely nothing to me or fans outside of Celtic and Rangers.


    As a Celtic supporter, 10 in a row means absolutely nothing to me either….at this time.

    If we reach 9, then it will.

    However, it is the fear of 8 that is driving Sevco to what, in any honest environment, would be the brink of destruction.

    They are not thinking of 10. The clear need is to win this season's title and, wishfully, the CL money they assume they will get.
