    i think the time for procrastination has passed. It was one thing to play the daft laddie. We now have specific date requirements which I would imagine are best met rather than coming up with an excuse v

The BBC are reporting on Rangers on TV, Radio and On-Line, on a regular basis. Here is the part of their website dedicated to Rangers. https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/teams/rangers There has been no "withdrawal of reporting" you just made that up.


    thanks Homunculus that’s what I was thinking. I was beginning to fear I was hearing things from the radio when Chic and Steven Thomson seem to be looking at TV pictures from Ibrox and providing updates to Sportsound

    Dear Mr Bankier
    Here here. Brilliant stuff from our court reporters. It’s this sort of reportage that makes SFM so special

    Usual hand-wringing crisis talk this morning. Charlie Adam and Kristoffer Boyd saying kids are priced out of football because of expensive access to facilities – which is why nobody plays in the streets anymore.
    Nothing like joined up thinking eh?

    saw someone on twitter posting an ad from Kris Boyd football camp. One week £75. Obvs a different Kris Boyd

    Nice podcast BP. 

    If only football entities listened to David Lows mantra – be the best we can be within our means.

    Where various “friendly” football matches get played is of little interest to me. 

    However this should be viewed as a competitor trying to capture market share and be dealt with accordingly. 

    The SRU aren’t doing this out of the kindness of their hearts. They need money as desperately as the SFA. The SRU commercial set up is superior To the SFAs no question. 

    That the SFA “allowed” this match to proceed is the more curious issue

    Leaving aside the particulars of the case , what is one to make of the criticisms of the legal teams, other than that as lawyers they seem to fall far short of acceptable standard in allowing their witnesses to waffle into discussing what the parties had intended their contracts to mean, when ,it seems that any first year law student by opening a text book 


    interesting thoughts JC 

    I was more intrigued by the fact that Elites lawyers requested this indemnity. Perhaps it’s just standard lawyering. But any sentient lawyer who had carried out even cursory due diligence (ie a google search!) would sense things aren’t quite right with this crowd. 

    As many others have pointed out – TRIFC relationships with its suppliers is hardly secret.

    Interesting article today by John James on the construct of Rangers European squad and their eligibility under homegrown player rules. If what he says is accurate it is surely worth a challenge by Rangers next opponents or even the ones they will eliminate on Thursday night.  Also, if what he says is accurate then it is shameful by the SFA if they are knowingly allowing it. 


    UTH – I’m conflicted by JJs output. The odd interesting piece scattered about invective and bile for other bloggers. Then the crusade type pieces against the McCanns. Alongside the password pieces, makes him a very difficult writer to like. 

    I struggle to see what seems such a simple problem being a real one for The Rangers
