Comment on We’re Gonny Need Another Baw. by Bogs Dollox.

(I don't know.)   And as an aside, I had a few wee bets on the TRFC v Killie game.  I thought it would be a close game, but sending off a goalkeeper in only 25 minutes following a highly contentious off the ball incident changed the game completely. Whether a red was justified or not, I think everyone would agree that the ref's decision materially influenced the outcome of the game.   My perspective is: why bet on games at all when the results are not solely dependent on the teams’ performances? [Agreed, betting is a mug’s game, but you have to have some vices…]  



    Not if your a Scottish referee it's not.

    Last night I was listening to Fraser The Blazer, the players union rep. He says that every player in the PFA is against the plastic pitches.I am too. 

    We should do what the Dutch Eredvisie top teams have done and fund the wee teams to replace them with grass. In Scotland only the SFA & SPFL and Celtic have the real money but the others could chip in according to their means.

    Thoughts please.

    I'm sure that many Rangers fans will see that result as a great success and a vindication of King's m.o. of stalling the regulatory processes at every turn.


    Don't always make that assumption. I speak to many Rangers fans these days and they are either scunnerd with his inability to deliver the glory days again or they just don't go and have no interest in a "Scottish Football because it is shite" and have moved over to the EPL (this I think was a trend anyway)


    Acceptances for 18.9m shares with the old share base would have easily met the 50% threshold, so the gerrymandering has saved him around £3.78m, offset against the legal and other professional costs incurred in avoiding compliance for so long.


    Those legal and other costs would have been the thick end of £2.5M. So for money he can apparently afford to spend or was skint he has put himself before the Scottish Courts as a confirmed Liar. Does he really believe the judges don't talk to each other and that his card isn’t marked?

    I think what Williams is trying to say is that the undertakings are not legally enforceable.

    You are deluding yourself I'm afraid DB if you think there will be an insolvency event.


    Thanks for that but I'm not delusional. The numbers speak for themselves. It's only a matter of time.

    Whether its caused by the Sports Direct claim or not making the Europa group stages one year it will happen. All they are doing is kicking the can down the road.

    To my mind its not a matter of where the money come from.

    Its more a question of why pay that for a 22 year old with no proven track record?

    Of course I seriously doubt he cost anything like £7m. The upfront payment will be out of the Euro money. The other instalments won't need to be paid because if he performs with his feet and not his fists he could be sold into the over inflated English market to a Championship team but only if that happens before the inevitable insolvency event.

    Sorry to bang on about this.

    But there is no way the Williams XI did not disgrace themselves in Denmark.

    The third charges story is not true.



    One has to ask onesself why it's not true. I find it hard to believe they went a full 90 minutes without singing their old favourites.

    I see the Record have binned the freelance reporter who created the false article. This is new for the DR. In the past they would have signed creatives like him up on the spot. If their new policy is to terminate untruthful reporters then the sports desk is going to be a mighty lonely place to be.

    ======================Some reasonable points made especially the one about Sevco looking a lot better on the pitch.
    However, with the budget stretched to breaking point already you haven't figured in the Sports Direct compo claim. It could be hefty or manageable if SD agree to spread it against a new merchandise deal but I sense this might be personal for Ashley and he will turn the screw.
