    So, what was the point of the statement? 


    In simple terms the SFA were keen to head off any criticism that Livingston's decision to close their Academy was the result of the implementation of Project Brave. However, it is actually the third club after Clyde and Falkirk to stop their investment in youth football in the last three years. Whether or not those closures are directly related to Project Brave, funding is an issue for community based clubs.


    I understood that  UEFA monies distributed to league members as a result of teams progressing in European competition was mandated for developing youth football? Will this mean that Livingston will not benefit next year?

    Watching Hearts v Celtic and enjoying a game of robust challenges and also some decent passing. A little disappointed with Naismith. I get his enthusiasm and admirable determination but it was demeaning of him to stand over and berate a prone player after kicking him up the erchie… twice. Other than this incident it has been tough but in the main fair.  Berra looks serious.. Hope its not a season killer for him.

    Re the union bears march. I think they just enjoy a good nature ramble.

    It all seems a bit too contrived to me. The JPDT should just consider the case and hand down a decision which if not in favour of RFC then RFC can appeal to CAS arguing that the ruling body were not competent due to the five way agreement.Together with which version of RFC has questioned the competency in the first place? Is it RFC(IL) or TRFC…and again TRFC agreeing to accept RFC footballing liabilities in the five way makes this very messy indeed.

      Does anyone know the answers to the following in terms of the rules:

      1. Whether players playing for Scottish clubs can be wholly or partly owned by a third party?

      2. Whether players playing for Scottish clubs can have their wages paid in part or in full by a third party?

      3. Whether a third party can benefit financially from the sale of players playing for a Scottish club?


    It's interesting insomuch as a player contracted to a club and wholly owned by that club might be less prone to external influences on his game play and attitude. I accept that agents can still agigtate and speak to 'their' player but this is less binding than ownership per se.I think the EPL are dead against it but how effectively it is policed I dont know.You might try contacting the SFA at registrations@scottishfa.co.uk..I understand they are striving for transparency at every level.

    The heinous part is the original text of your post. To sit in a pub with a few friends and pass such comment might be considered dislike but to take the time and effort to compose and then post your vitriol takes a special kind of dislike, the sort of dislike that might well be seen on other forums. well done you for going the extra mile.The greater good you ask ? See here for an example .https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wui-PNqJrxs  I have checked back through the thread and I cant see any reference to club allegiance, Did I miss something?

    No pardon required .its not rocket science . just a simple attempt at validation which will now escalate typically into righteous indignation…oh wait .Seriously you ignore my anology to dislike of a carbonated soft drink and motivation for posting ! I have no doubt at all that you 'dislike' Neil Lennon. That much was plain from your original post. It doesn't make it ok because its on a football forum, all it does is offer succour to people who would like to find a reason ..and you help the mindset. This is not an attempt to shut down debate but I do  believe that your post is unhelpful and not conducive to the greater good.

    Not so DBD, my gripe is with the underlying validation of hatred.You and Highlander think its ok to 'dislike' Neil Lennon and seem to search for vindication by saying he irritates you..To post on a forum trying to justify such an attitude is disingenuous. dislike of irn bru doesnt make me post comment …if I really really hated irn bru…then mibbees.

    Can I be the first to say that my dislike of Neil Lennon stems not from any anti-Catholic, anti-Irish sentiment linked to the pseudo-religious politics of his homeland, which I couldn't give a flying fu*k (or pound coin) about, but from the snarling, aggressive, antagonistic player he was and the pugnacious, greeting-faced and argumentative manager he has become.

    I don't like irn bru but generally don't feel motivated to post about it.
