Comment on In Whose Interests by StevieBC.

    J.j you're right, and with funny handshakes all round.


    But, after all these years, and after Craig Whyte's deviousness…


    You would think/hope that someone would be covertly recording EVERY conversation they have with the SFA/SPFL senior management?

    Interesting analysis by JJ on the feasibility of a Morelos Transfer to the EPL:




    Fair play: JJ can indeed produce decent articles.


    Every Bampot should read it: valuable insights to the whole 'player's work permit' process.

    The SPFL's annual report to 31 May 2019 has just been published by Companies House…


    Can't say I took much notice at the time of the appointment,

    but how prescient that the TRFC MD – Stewart Robertson – was made an SPFL Ltd. Director, as recently as July 22nd. this year?


    In Whose Interests
    Forget about the dwindling support for the Scotland team…


    it looks like the players don't want to be involved either.


    And who can blame them?

    J.J it's 'simply the best' confirmation of King being a shadow director: coming from Gerrard, no less.

    The long list of dodgy precedents / bending of the rules by the SFA is guaranteed to come back to bite them.

    It might take an outsider like the SMSM dubbed 'Mad Vlad' to enter Scottish football: someone who will just not take their nonsense – and just might rag doll the SFA through the courts?

    And I'd pay good money to see that…

    Lugosi, that awful joke deserves a straight red!  broken heart


    The unfunniest joke I've heard today is that an Eton/Oxbridge type from a privileged background,

    who studied classics and dead languages before sliding straight into a political career,

    is somehow the PM – again – of a country which prioritises political correctness, social inclusion and diversity for the general population, in our daily lives.

    Yet our head of government is a member of the 1%.  

    Not terribly representative…  heart

    PM, yes I did notice that 'coincidence' with Klopp's extension.

    I genuinely think that the rookie Gerrard has done better than expected with The Rangers so far.

    He's never going to get the player budget at Ibrox to match his ambitions though.

    And, IMO, he's going to have to over achieve – like Alex Ferguson did at Aberdeen domestically and in Europe – to be considered a candidate for any of the EPL top jobs.

    Mibbees Gerrard has other ideas…  indecision

    OK, call me cynical but…


    we've seen the PR game played many times before in the media: release bad news when there is a planned, major event which will attract all the attention instead.


    So, today being all about the Election results – it would be ideal to quietly slip out some disappointing company financials, or news that a senior figure had left their organisation immediately ' to spend more time with their family', etc.


    Likewise – why would you choose to release really good news on a day like today?


    The Rangers web site and the SMSM are reporting today that Gerrard has now signed / extended his contract by 2 years, to 2024.

    Yes, over the last week or two there has been PR chat in the media that he could extend.

    So, when he has agreed a new deal you would think the news would be released to attract the maximum, positive exposure for Ibrox – like some day next week?

    Mibbees our resident, Hearts Bampots can add further…


    but, I hadn't heard of their new German manager Stendel, before now.

    And it seems that Budge took her time to get her preferred choice.

    On the face of it: a brave decision to try a new direction?


    Are the Hearts fans generally in favour of the appointment?

    [Can't say that I've seen too much coverage in the SMSM…]
