    I see that JJ has been on the case of Club 1872 being diluted by the latest loan conversion wheeze at RIFC. It would help his case, and his calculations, if he had used the share totals following last year's share issue rather than those from the last share issue


    Thats a pity he was so sure he had got that one right and without a source to blame for the error this time it can only be a matter of time before he resigns and closes his site.

    In football, like everywhere else in the capitalist world, a sale takes place when a commodity is worth more to the buyer than the seller. A football agent’s job is to stimulate the process.
    The Turnbull situation is no different to tens of similar scenarios played out away from the public gaze.
    Turnbull’s labour is probably worth more to others than to Celtic. Nothing unusual there except that the public acceptance of the bid puts pressure on either side.
    The figures being talked about here are (from my information) way over the top – double in fact – but my own advice to any young guy in David Turnbull’s position would be to leave the influence of the the hushed-up sectarianism report, the 5WA, and the pound-shop corruption behind.
    Go to a place where the game is as fair as it can be – and the very best of luck to him wherever he goes.


    Hang on a minute. In the first part of your post you explain how the pricing method within a capitalist market works but further on you are surprisingly able to say "The figures being talked about……. are way over the top".

    It is merely the price the market has set for the services of a largely unproven youngster with enormous potential. Norwich were prepared to pay £25k a week. Celtic could only afford £12k. Such is the way of the capitalist market when buying labour. It may be unaffordable for Celtic but its not "over the top" its simply the market rate that DT is able to realise for the sale of his labour.

    I can understand why you are disappointed Celtic lost DT because as a Motherwell fan I'm also disappointed. That disappointment may be tempered slightly because it appears he may be on loan with us until Xmas before flying off to join the Canaries. That makes sense as it gives him time to get more games under his belt. My understanding is that Celtic weren't able to meet that requirement and it was a factor in DT's decsion.

    Anyways good luck to the lad and I look forward to him being Scotlands best player for a generation.

    I can't say for sure but I believe it was felt that such a move would only serve to play into the hands of those who want to undermine the status of the women's game.


    If the proposed change was made it would only have taken goals out of the game. Who wants that?

    And if men are taller now than a 100 years ago when the goal size was set. Is there not a case for making them bigger?

    If only there was a tenacious group who were dedicated to questioning authority to improve the game.

    Wasn't there more than one Ibrox disaster. Was this memorial rembering the deceased of both?

    Celtic’s Questions to Answer
    I'm guessing they've put in place some funny structures to "mitigate" their overall tax liability on the loan players.

    Celtic’s Questions to Answer

    That was my first thought too. They have a crippling wage bill and therefore an onerous PAYE liability.

    As PAYE is dealt with in real time these days it doesn't take HMRC long to pick up non compliance.

    Best keep an eye on the Glasgow Courts for enforcement procedures.

    I ruled out an attempt to rescue the reputation of Oldco on the grounds that raking over the coals only highlights the fact they were tax cheats.

    Some time ago I took on the onerous task of having my ears assaulted by SuperscrotesBoard on Clyde 1.

    This was because nobody else on here actually listened to it except J. Clark Esq who listens to everything that is going on in Scotchlandshire be it on the radio, in the courts or in the shareholders shenanigans.

    But be that as it is my underlying and solemn promise was to report back to the Bams with any juicy titbits that I may have gleaned from ClydeScroteBoard.

    Well tonight I heard Shug Keevins talk about a Rangers player called Murray Loss. I thought to mysef – well Shug code it as you must but it is received and understood. Nice one. He said it again. And I thought he had actually grown a pair.

    Third time though after the break he had been corrected and he pronounced the name with the Spanish "th" on the end.

    Otherwise the show was a great big suck up to the Old Firm and at times I thought I would vomit.

    However, I did learn from Craig Beattie that as an angry young player at Hibs Scott Brown once stood on Neil Lennons foot.

    I think there would be serious issues for Directors of RIFC if they knew  the accounts would not be signed off yet were arranging for club 1872 to invest 500k , it really depends how desperate they are or if they believe they could spin their way out of it .


    I agree that there could be serious issues but I doubt they are the type where spin would get you out of it.

    In the same vein there must be the same question mark over the reliability of the half year to Dec 2018 numbers if the full year results produce substantial losses.

    An investor could have seen the reported half year profit and the upbeat message for the full year and thought: "you know what I'm going to get on the blower to that matched bargains geezer and see if I can't scoop up some shares in the holding company of the engine room subsidiary". Imagine his disappointment when the results for the full year are released!

    At times Sportsound might as well be recorded in a Rangers supporters club. I no longer listen. 


    If you think that's bad spare a thought for the Superscoreboard listeners on Clyde 1. It's gone completely downhill ever since Big Deek Johnstone "retired".
