Comment on We’re Gonny Need Another Baw. by Jingso.Jimsie.

    Re my post at 1608:


    My reference to the SFA's JP should refer to Section 13, not 14.

    This article on Etims, by Derek Crowther an ex Ref, is quite revealing.'


    I have no formal contact with Scottish football, referees etc., but that article confirms exactly what I thought is the current situation/process/reality. Sad, isn't it? 

    We’re Gonny Need Another Baw.
    Re Ian Maxwell's statement that there are '22 FIFA officials' in Scotland: there are actually 23 such officials listed on the FIFA website. Who knew Scotland had a FIFA-rated Futsal referee? I didn't!


    His statement is also slightly disingenuous in that of his 22 (presumably-proper) fitba' officials, 5 are female (1 referee & 4 assistant referees) & not usually tasked with male professional games. In fact, not one of the 5 (22.7% of the FIFA contingent) has an SPFL appointment in the coming week.


    NB. John Beaton has 2 Premiership games in 6 days. Somebody's keeping him sweet…

    I also note that Bachmann’s red card has been rescinded. I await Kamara being cited, but won’t hold my breath.

    From SFA website;

    "Notice of Claim | Daniel Bachmann, Kilmarnock FC Friday 22 February 2019 Player: Daniel Bachmann, Kilmarnock FC Match: Rangers FC v Kilmarnock FC on Wednesday 20 February 2019 Competition: The Scottish Cup Offence: A2 – Violent Conduct Claim: Wrongful Dismissal Fast Track Tribunal Hearing: Friday 22 February 2019"


    Well, with the SFA CEO's recent, staunch defence of Scottish Refs, I'm guessing this ridiculous red card will be upheld?


    However, if a red card is rescinded is there AUTOMATIC demotion or action against the ref? (I don't know.)'



    Firstly, if Bachmann's red card is rescinded, then Kamara must be guilty of simulation as per the SFA's JP Section 14.


    Secondly, you'll never know if a referee is suspended or demoted. Confidentiality, don'tcha kenmailsurprise

    In Whose Interests
    @ Cluster One 15th September 2019 at 20:43:

    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'…
