    JC the thing about McGregor though is that you can't start adding Association Developed players to the squad until you have 4 Club developed players named.
    Matchday squads consist of two lists.  List A and List B.  List B can contain as many players as you like as long a they are registered to the club and elligible to play at U21s or lower even if they are a first team regular.  List A however is more complicated

    1 – 17 Completely free choices from your playing pesonnel
    18 – 21 Must have been developed by the club i.e. have been registered for 3 full seasons between the age of 15 and 21 with the club
    22 – 25 Must have been developed by a club in the Association i.e. have been registered for 3 full seasons between the age of 15 and 21 with the club and/or other clubs in the association

    If you can't completely fill 18 – 21 then you can't fill any of 22-25 and therefore have an A list squad of less than 21.  If you can fill 18-21 but can't completely fill 22-25 then your A list is 21, 22 or 23 players.

    My understanding is that MCGregor was included as one of 4 in 18-21 which allowed players to be picked 22-25.  However a former head of UEFA club licensing has said McGregor was developed by a different club.  TRFC could almost certainly have used a B list player to complete the 4 club developed A list players but didn't.  McGregor should only have been included at the expense of 1 of the 17 free choices or, with 4 club developed players named, as an Association developed player

    Oh and guess who is responsible for monitoring the eligibility of Club and Association developed players.  Ex Ludo is correct the SFA will be all over it, NOT!

    Thanks Auldheid

    Bad Money?
    scotc @ 9.11

    Auldheid would have a better understanding then me but my understanding is that UEFA accept the concept of a holding company operating the club and would not be concerned if the holding company meet FFP even if the club wouldn't.  What I am unsure out is the level of debt the holding company is permitted before it doesn't meet the FFP criteria.  I would assume it has to be a percentage of group turover given that RIFC has no revenue stream other than dilution of its own shares

    Bad Money?
    Not withstanding the fact that Hebei Fortune already having a full quota of foreign players, amongst a host of other things, made the story ridiculous, but has anybody considered that whoever released the squirrel was implying that they made an illegal approach to the player or his representatives.

    No official bid – no acceptance of a bid – no permission to talk to player or his representatives.

    Morelos rejected terms – how could he know what terms offered with Hebei not having permission to talk to him or his agents

    Wouldn't club 1872's constitution require them to vote against the Debt for Equity swap.   I know, I know.

    Isn't club 1872's only aim supposed to be to increase the fan shareholding in the club (Sic).  From memory the dilution at the last swap wasn't too great because they had also loaned but this time the dilution is around a third.


    Of course club 1872 would be able to increase their holding again and more cheaply if people are prepared to sell and they have the cash.  The market cap cold not possibly continue to stand up a share price of 20p if the proposed swap goes through, indeed the share price in the last trade in the public domain (through JPJenkins) was at 18p.

    I can never work out wether the JPJenkins site has an echo because sometimes it shows 2 identical transactions and sometimes only 1.  Anyway since I last looked two lines of 300,000 shares at 18p have been added.  If the seller voted to sell on the court ordered offer, he/she/they have taken a £6000+ hit because honest Dave bought enough time to gerrymander the vote

    every fan should know that the season-ticket revenue will solely go towards the first-team squad.

    When did Close Brothers become part of the first team squad and aren't there registration issues 😉

    Beaton awarded a free-kick for the Morelos push on Brown which immediately preceded the kick.  Taking a kick at a player off the ball is violent conduct, a mandatory red card.  Beaton  may have said he dealt with the incident by awarding the freekick and been vague about the kick.


    Steve MacLean accepted a two match ban when the referee panel agreed with the compliance officer that grabbing a player by the genitals is violent conduct.  If Beaton saw the Morelos assault on Christie he needs to explain why he disagrees with 3 former referrees that what he witnessed wasn't violent conduct and therefore a mandatory dismissal.  I don't recall him dealing in anyway with the incident.


    Only Morelos will know if he intended to rake Ralston's back.  But his body position was totally wrong for a natural occurrence.  In this instance I think Beaton  only required to believe there was intent to take action.  I belive the actipn he took was to award a throw in.  The absolute minimum that should have happened is a warning for Morelos to be careful when jumping at/over an opponent.
