(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.

    In football, like everywhere else in the capitalist world, a sale takes place when a commodity is worth more to the buyer than the seller. A football agent’s job is to stimulate the process.
    The Turnbull situation is no different to tens of similar scenarios played out away from the public gaze.
    Turnbull’s labour is probably worth more to others than to Celtic. Nothing unusual there except that the public acceptance of the bid puts pressure on either side.
    The figures being talked about here are (from my information) way over the top – double in fact – but my own advice to any young guy in David Turnbull’s position would be to leave the influence of the the hushed-up sectarianism report, the 5WA, and the pound-shop corruption behind.
    Go to a place where the game is as fair as it can be – and the very best of luck to him wherever he goes.


    Hang on a minute. In the first part of your post you explain how the pricing method within a capitalist market works but further on you are surprisingly able to say "The figures being talked about……. are way over the top".

    It is merely the price the market has set for the services of a largely unproven youngster with enormous potential. Norwich were prepared to pay £25k a week. Celtic could only afford £12k. Such is the way of the capitalist market when buying labour. It may be unaffordable for Celtic but its not "over the top" its simply the market rate that DT is able to realise for the sale of his labour.

    I can understand why you are disappointed Celtic lost DT because as a Motherwell fan I'm also disappointed. That disappointment may be tempered slightly because it appears he may be on loan with us until Xmas before flying off to join the Canaries. That makes sense as it gives him time to get more games under his belt. My understanding is that Celtic weren't able to meet that requirement and it was a factor in DT's decsion.

    Anyways good luck to the lad and I look forward to him being Scotlands best player for a generation.

    I can't say for sure but I believe it was felt that such a move would only serve to play into the hands of those who want to undermine the status of the women's game.


    If the proposed change was made it would only have taken goals out of the game. Who wants that?

    And if men are taller now than a 100 years ago when the goal size was set. Is there not a case for making them bigger?

    If only there was a tenacious group who were dedicated to questioning authority to improve the game.

    I see that JJ has been on the case of Club 1872 being diluted by the latest loan conversion wheeze at RIFC. It would help his case, and his calculations, if he had used the share totals following last year's share issue rather than those from the last share issue


    Thats a pity he was so sure he had got that one right and without a source to blame for the error this time it can only be a matter of time before he resigns and closes his site.

    Wasn't there more than one Ibrox disaster. Was this memorial rembering the deceased of both?

    One for the lawyers. Do Bonnyrigg have any legal case they could pursue.

    Effectively they and the other clubs who lost their bond money have been the subjects of a scam.

    It cannot be acceptable that the rules can be changed retrospectively as it's contrary to natural justice and legal convention.
