    Frank Haffey, a real blast from the past.


    April 1961. After the match at Wembley when asked the time a wag said it was 9 past Haffey!!

    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?
