Comment on Dear Mr Bankier by Cluster One.

    Brazilian premier league soccer club Atletico Mineiro has launched a fan token dubbed “GaloCoin,” Cointelegraph Brazil reports Friday, Dec. 14.

    The GaloCoin is named after Atletico’s mascot, a rooster (“galo” in Portuguese). It is based on Footcoin — a platform that allows to launch utility tokens on the Ethereum blockchain. The GaloCoin is tied to the national fiat currency exchange rate and is equal to one Brazilian real.

    Atletico’s token will allow fans to purchase game tickets, official apparel, as well as participate in discount programs. To use the club’s cryptocurrency token, one has to buy at least 50 GaloCoins (equivalent to approximately $13).

    Utility tokens are steadily increasing in popularity among soccer teams.
    The changing face of football.

    I read that earlier, it was like the sort of thing you would read in a fanzine.

    “Gerrard ‘s strategy was the more dramatic. And the braver. A respected academy coach at Anfield following his retirement as a player, Gerrard knew a huge section of Liverpool’s support would push for him to be the club’s next manager.”
    Reads more like a warburton you snooze you loose. Article.

    The cashless society and cryptocurrencies in general are a bankers dream which is why they should be avoided like the plague.
    A great informative post, thanks for that.
    And sorry for the late reply.
    My earlier post to a reply was more tongue and cheek, hence the crossbar challenge way to make a few quid.
    But i am always happy to be pointed in the right direction.

    I’m struggling to think of a RRM (ex-player or manager of RFC/TRFC, as it may be time for the Boards of RIFC & TRFC to ‘circle the wagons’) who would be qualified to be (or would want the position of) DoF at Ibrox.
    “He is a man of vision who has achieved great success with Manchester City’s Academy. He has excellent contacts in football but also the business world and he will be a great asset to Rangers.
    “We said we would not rush into an appointment as we wanted the right candidate and we feel Mark is the best man for the job. We look forward to working with him closely in the years ahead in what will be an important role at the Club.”
    Big shoes to fill whoever gets the gig and there first job will be to try and offload a few at ibrox.Maybe they are just taking their time not to rush into an appointment as they want the right candidate. Who would take it though?

    I have to admit I love a good conspiracy theory, especially when at a loose end on a Sunday night,
    So it has not escaped my notice that some theories on Mark Allen’s surprise departure from Ibrox are emerging on social media.
    The bigger surprise that i have not seen asked is will he be replaced?
    Down ibrox way they like a good comparison and a link to some name that they have no hope of getting over the ibrox threshold.So far no link to anyone, very strange as this gets the smsm free reign to link the ibrox club to anyone and everyone and fills the back pages.

    We all know the importance of the message regarding sporting integrity. But without other content to engage Scottish football fans, this message will never get across.

    Where are the League tables? Where are the links to match reports, fan websites, relevant news stories, the SFA financials, the SPFL website? Just for a start. I could go on. And on.

    If you build it, they will come. As Confucius said.
    Here is a link to how the ibrox saga was reported (and some not reported) at the time.(2012 to still updating)A lot of scrolling back, but my God some of the things you forget.If the SFM can use it, very happy to oblige, if it is of any use to readers.
    Hope it works.

    But you can be sure they will do everything they can to protect their own share of the gravy train that comes from being a senior blazer at the SFA.
    Good post.
    And in that part is what is wrong with the whole of scottish football,protecting their own part of the Gravy train.
    In 2012 and before part of that gravy train looked to be heading to the buffers, when that happens the wagons are circled to protect the carriage.
    Lies and dammed lies are produced to protect ones easy life. Even if it damages the game they are men’t to protect. With the mindset if i do a favour here, it does not matter if it goes wrong as someone will do me a favour down the line.
    What we need is a clear out.
    And what we need is transparency of who does what, how much they are costing the game, what they do for their money, how many freebies do they get, what they have done on a monthly basis to improve our game. And a low down of expenses by each individual.
    But as we know these things will never happen as no one in authority wants to upset the gravy train.

    Can i just say.
    Congratulations on your 2019 Summer Appeal.
    Rod Petrie.
    We weren’t shown up by UEFA gers rap.
    He claims the action from Europe’s governing body has
    INSPIRED our football authorities to be tougher in tackling the scourge of our game.
    The uefa rap was for one clubs racist behaviour, but Petrie want’s to lump every club with it.
    Petrie added Why would the SFA be embarrassed?
    Jesus! You should be embarrassed as UEFA have shown you how you should have got off your lazy backside and taken action years ago.
    But no embarrassment for the SFA. No not at all this happened in a competition run by UEFA. I expect this kind of racist behaviour never happened in a competition run by the SFA?
    Petrie . Equaliy we look to the SPFL to take a similar approach.
    Does he want the SPFL to close parts of stadiums were racist singing has been heard? he does not make that clear.But he does pass the blame.
    Petrie… We welcomed the statement that came out of rangers….REALLY?
    We would have welcomed a statement from the SFA at the time, not a bleeding blame piece from the SFA in a paper weeks later.
    But Petrie added he is not going to run away from it….Fecking hell you just blamed everyone but yourself.

    Ps. sorry for some of the bad language
