    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

    Thanks EJ. Was just about to post that. 

    interesting parallels with EBTs I think. Just as well Scottish football doesn’t have millionaires with spare cash to “co-invest” with players in property deals. To busy funding the day to day operations of their football companies

    I too listened to snippets of Monday’s Sportsound. Quite amused of the shock and horror by McIntyre and Preston on the DU situation. 

    lmagine my surprise to catch BBC Scotland news tonight with another piece interviewing the “owner” of DU. Nice linkage with Hearts under Romanov. No mention of any other clubs operating at significant losses or having previously went into liquidation. I wonder why?

    LUGOSI 20th October 2019 at 09:08 '..The Note follows a Hearing on 31st May 2019 and you can see why it took four months to produce. The Note is particularly interesting, to me anyway, when after disposing of the arguments put forward by the Appellants the Sheriff proceeds to arguments which were not put forward. ' +++++++++++++++++ I have just read the Note. Not ever having been even a law student never mind a lawyer, I nevertheless found it relatively easy to read and extremely interesting, particularly the Sheriff Principal's scrupulous explanation of 'judicial knowledge' and the potted histories,and of how he justifies drawing on 'judicial knowledge' in arriving at his judgment.


    its a fascinating read. Closes all sorts of doors to appeal as well. Almost as if the Sherif anticipated that would be coming. 
    as an aside Im told Sherif Reid is very good to work with and not the usual “public school educated” lawyer.
