Comment on Bad Money? by bordersdon.

    Here we go again with the two cheeks. You sound just like the media, if Rangers have to be condemned for something Celtic have to be brought in to even things up. If you have something to say about Celtic and it's supporters then say what you mean. Don't use the two cheeks as it has no relevance here. Celtic supporters, including the Green Brigade, did not break down gates to illegally enter a Football Stadium nor did they enter the field of play, and certainly did not jump on a roof covering and endanger lives.

    So if you have a point to make re the GB then state it plain and simple and I'm sure many (including Celtic supporters) will agree with at least some of your criticisms.


    Not hiding mate just been very busy today.

    The real point of my post was that the media are creaming their collective knickers at the possibility/reality of a return to the duopoly fighting it out for the honours this season! So Scottish football has returned to normal. The  2 cheeks was just being a bit cheeky (could have been the bigot brothers). IMO in that respect one is as bad as the other (with the obvious exception of the fair minded people who post here). 

    ANENT the GB I personally don't think their "political" stance (however sincerely or brainwashed held) has any place in football but that is my opinion. As is acknowledged here by many all clubs have their zoomer supporters and we are no exception. I am really sensitive to being called a SSB by other club's supporters angry.

    For the avoidance of doubt I am of the John C persuasion when it comes to the big lie and ALL our clubs involvement in keeping that narrative alive.

    Bad Money?
    Anent the crowd behaviour at Rugby Park at the weekend whilst not condoning anything I'm not sure the GB covered themselves in glory? Or is that ok even it has feck all to do with football? One thing is sure this season even this early is that the two cheeks are back and the press/media and both cheeks are loving it. Plus sa change as they say!!

    Bad Money?

    As at the time stamp, the latest court loss to Ashley doesn't seem to have registered on The ET online.


    The DR has a feature on it though! Link available from BBC football "gossip".

    Bad Money?

    It's evident that activity on here has reached a new low! Is this because:

    1. Folk see no hope of changing/improving the governance of Scottish football and of ever getting a recognition that a certain cheating club, who won many Scottish football honours whilst cheating, died and a new club was created?

    2. A sense that Res 12 has been kicked so far into the long grass that it is lost?

    3. There is no expectation that the new club (see above) is in any way heading for administration/liquidation? Certainly in the past there has been nothing like an impending financial disaster to get the SFM keyboards rattling.

    Or a mixture of all three of the above?

    Of course I seriously doubt he cost anything like £7m. The upfront payment will be out of the Euro money. The other instalments won't need to be paid because if he performs with his feet and not his fists he could be sold into the over inflated English market to a Championship team but only if that happens before the inevitable insolvency event.


    You are deluding yourself I'm afraid DB if you think there will be an insolvency event.

    Anent the Kent transfer fee (there is no doubt that he will improve the team by the way).

    At the prices quoted and assuming attendances of 48,000 at all 3 home games, and taking in to account hospitality, TV revenues TRFC will NET at least £10m from the group stages to add to the cash they received for getting there. That excludes money from points gained in the group stage.

    Yes the duopoly is back!

    Since my post above I see there is a UEFA delegate among the officials:

    8 August 2019, 20:00 CET – Herning (MCH Arena)

    FC Midtjylland (DEN) – Rangers FC (SCO)

    Referee: Kristo Tohver (EST)

    Assistant Referee 1: Silver Kõiv (EST)

    Assistant Referee 2: Aron Härsing (EST)

    Fourth Official: Juri Frischer (EST)

    UEFA Referee Observer: Markus Strömbergsson (SWE)

    UEFA Delegate: Ivan Tsitovich (RUS)

    So Mr Tsitovich will be the man presumably.

    Up the hoops.

    I saw an interesting claim on Twitter this morning regarding how Rangers escaped a UEFA Charge against FC Midtjylland. Apparently the UEFA Observer was a prominent ex-Scottish Referee who is often spotted in the Director's Box at Ibrox on match days, and it is reasonable to assume he is not paying to be there. I have not named him because I have no idea for sure if he was acting for UEFA that night. 


    Excuse my ignorance but is it the referee observer who would site clubs for such things or some other official?
