    All of that is utterly irrelevant to what we were discussing regarding Brown's unprofessional and unecessarily provocative behaviour.

     

    Why take the ball of the spot? '

    ##################################

    I don't know why Brown picked the ball up when the game was effectively stopped. You'd need to ask him that. While you're at it, ask him if it was 'unprofessional' and 'unnecessarily provocative' for him to do so.

     

    However, you clearly stated that Brown picking up the ball prevented the game restarting. I outlined in my reply at 1646hrs that Brown didn't prevent a restart as neither team nor the referee was in position for that event to take place prior to Kent's lash-out under the Laws of the game. You claim that the points I made are irrelevant. I fail to see how they are.

     

    Perhaps it's better if I just leave it there & I'll discuss the matter no further.

    A little bit of speculation on my part:

     

    TRFC will appeal Kent's notice of Complaint today.

     

    Tomorrow, they will represent their defence at a hearing. The word 'provocation' will be used unsparingly. The Judicial Panel, having read all the Level Sinko froth over the last few days, will refer to the JPP Section 11.4 & particularly 11.4.2.2:

     

    11.4.2.2 The existence of provocation and whether the Party acted in retaliation and/or self defence. 

     

    The Notice of Complaint will be rescinded. Level Sinko will get a bonus. TRFC will rejoice Real football fans will shake their heads, both at the injustice of the findings, but also in embarrassment.

    In the Kent incident he withholds the ball to prevent the restart of the game…'

    ##################################

     

    The game couldn't have restarted immediately before the Kent incident occurred.

     

    Law 8 states the following:

     

    For every kick-off: • all players, except the player taking the kick-off, must be in their own half of the field of play • the opponents of the team taking the kick-off must be at least 9.15 m (10 yds) from the ball until it is in play • the ball must be stationary on the centre mark • the referee gives a signal • the ball is in play when it is kicked and clearly moves.

     

    Neither the referee, TRFC players or their opponents were in position for the kick-off. I accept that Brown lifted the ball from the centre-mark, but the ball wasn't 'live'. The referee hadn't blown his whistle. The referee (apparently) wasn't  even looking in the vicinity of the centre-spot or he'd have seen what transpired. Brown clearly doesn't prevent the game restarting at that moment because nobody except Kent was ready for the kick-off. Bain & Brown were (I think) the only two CFC players in their own half.

    I think Bobby Madden had a fairly good game yesterday. Lots for him to do. He missed what I thought was a clear penalty to Rangers and the now-infamous left hook from Kent, but overall I though he was professional and honest…'

    #########################################

     

    I won’t mention any specific incidents, but I think that Mr. Madden had a 4/10 performance at best yesterday. That's simply not good enough for a FIFA referee in the highest-profile domestic fixture in Scotland.

    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.

    Level Sinko may also be scratching its singular head over that conundrum, hence the lack of speculation in the media.

    Possibly this will be another example of how the Group Chairman is not an asset, but a liability…

     

     


    In Whose Interests
    I've just been told that Mark Allan 'Warburtoned' himself as he's expected to be announced as Manchester United's Sporting Director (Edwin Van Der Saar having declined the post) sometime next week.

    Watch this space, I think, on that one!


    In Whose Interests
    TRFC do like a Friday evening statement, don't they?

    I suspect that Allen's position became very difficult when he failed to sell any or all of Morelos, Tavernier, Grezda or Foderingham in the last transfer window.

    I also wonder how much input (if any) he had into the signing of Kent & whether that was the final straw?


    In Whose Interests
    Can't argue with what's been written by BP, but I think there's been two other events in the last thirty of years which have damaged the development of home-grown players. I refer to Freedom of Movement as enshrined in the Maastricht Treaty of 1992 & the Jean-Marc Bosman case in the ECJ in 1995.

    Scottish football embraced freedom of movement to the detriment of local, homegrown players. I'm sure everyone reading this post who supports or follows a specific Scottish team will have a tale or two of the numerous 'furrin diddies' signed because they were exotic & fashionable (and probably available on a 'Bosman'!), rather than they were better footballers than boys who had been locally trained & coached through the ranks. This happened not just in the top tier, but down the leagues as well. 

    Please don't construe my comments as anti-European or racist: I'm neither. Scottish professional football, from top to bottom, chose short-term-contract imports over homegrown youth for the wrong reasons in too many cases. Perhaps most of two Scottish footballing generations have been lost to date in many clubs’ rush to sign someone who’s played a few games in Ligue Un as a free-agent in preference to someone homegrown.

    I don't think it was a soundly-thought-out financial decision for many clubs either; it was simply  'keeping up with the Joneses' & being 'on trend'…
