    A new word enters the SFM lexicon. Hat suitably doffed.

    Accountability via Transparency.
    Replying to Bordersdon and Paddymalarkey from earlier today. I didn’t see the McKenna article at the weekend however it appeared on my Twitter feed and I note that the estimable Fr. Stone has retweeted it. Assuming it’s not a clever spoof account then it’s pretty worrying that if you believe that the liquidation of Rangers 1872 didn’t happen then you’re one of us.

    The acid test of patriotism.

    The IOC have recently opened a new HQ in Switzerland at a reported cost of £120 million. It’s very nice and environmentally friendly. I would not be surprised if FIFA get a bit jealous and also build a shiny new symbol of wealth and power sponsored of course by whoever wants the World Cup Finals the most.

    There’s quite a bit of cash involved in this deal.

    I read this morning on one of the more entertaining Celtic facing websites that Rangers* may have fielded an ineligible player (Alan McGregor) in their EL qualifier yesterday evening. The honest mistake apparently is that although Mr McGregor is listed on the squad list he wasn’t a development player for his present club. I’m not concerned because I’m fully confident that the SFA will have the matter in hand.

    That boxing promoter lad would be Mr Barry Hearn. He spoke at the SFA’s inaugural convention a few years back. Was there another one? 

    I don’t think his advice was what the SFA wanted to hear though. From a Tom English article 

    “If there was any doubt about it then he disabused folk right from the get-go. "I'm not an expert on Scottish football," he told the assembled cast of chairmen, chief executives and committee men and women of all kinds. "Listening to your [financial] figures, doesn't seem like you are either."”

    Companies House is a familiar source of information for many on here. The quote below is taken from an article in today’s Guardian newspaper (online). It casts doubt on the checking systems of Companies House.

    “In theory, the introduction of the PSC rule should have prevented the use of a British shell company to anonymously commit financial crime. Don’t worry though, because it didn’t. Here is the secret: no one checks the accuracy of the information you provide when you register with Companies House. You can say pretty much anything and Companies House will accept it.”

    Nostalgia ain’t what it used to be. There’s a wee reference to Charles Green at top right on the page threatening to take players to court who refuse to sign up to his “ phoenix club” How did that work out for him?
