    Comment on We’re Gonny Need Another Baw. by Ex Ludo.

    ClusterOne@21.50 yesterday 

    And the second season of honest mistakes continues unabated. It didn’t take Glen Kamara long to settle in. Whose turn will it be to collapse in a heap this weekend?

    We’re Gonny Need Another Baw.
    Tam Cowan on Off The Ball asking listeners to spare a thought for poor wee Alfredo Morelos who scored 4 goals but his achievement was overshadowed by the controversy surrounding the game. I don’t believe it was said tongue in cheek. More likely trying to move things along. No discussion of Kamara’s simulation and how the outcome of the game was affected by this. Poor wee Alfredo.

    Bordersdon@11.25

    So we’ve had countless numbers of foreign players, a whole raft of non Scottish coaches and managers including the national coach, a fair number of foreign owners and major shareholders (and now the Americans are here there will be more to follow), international sponsors but as far as the SFA are concerned there will be no non Scottish referees in Scottish football.

    Is it just me or are the SFA about 100 years behind the times? Or is there a darker reason ?

    Its been said before that the clubs are the SFA and the SFA are the clubs. So where is the problem?


    We’re Gonny Need Another Baw.
    BBC Scotland’s morning news programme provided a short report on last nights game at 08.23. Their sports reporter Phil Goodlad read the report which featured commentary of Morelos scoring his fourth goal. No mention was made of Kilmarnock’s penalty claim or the simulation leading to the red card or even the fact that Kilmarnock were reduced to 10 men. This was followed by an interview with Pat Bonnar from Valencia. He was asked to comment on the sectarian chanting directed towards Stevie Clarke. Pat Bonnar gave a typically neutral reply.

    A show of support for Stevie Clarke from the other managers would no doubt be welcome however a clear statement from his own club would have much more impact. One thing is certain, the Scottish media won’t.

    That's a shame about the wall case. The folk down Ibrox way are usually more guarded when it comes to walls.


    Celtic’s Questions to Answer
    I was quite pleased to find out HMRC Media had a Twitter account. Who knew? Unfortunately I missed the forensic analysis of The Rangers Tax Case which formed part of ClydeSSB yesterday evening. I’m sure it left no EBT unturned.


    Celtic’s Questions to Answer
    Perhaps through a trusted Medium TRFC have consulted with Mary Shelley who has given them a few ideas. If the new club Sevco is about to shuffle off it’s mortal coil then why not use the good bits from Sevco and reanimate the old club. Hey presto, Frankenstein FC. Their could of course be a problem because having “stein” anywhere in club  name might cause some consternation in certain quarters. 

    Seriously thought this Times article is a huge squirrel ergo it’s a huge smokescreen for a major issue concerning TRFC/RIFC.

    Pretty decent analysis provided by JJ in that piece. One can only hope that Hugh Keevins and Alex Rae find the time to read it too then perhaps they might rein in their gushing praise of Senõr Morelos and his majestic progress to the playing fields of England’s green and pleasant land.


    In Whose Interests
    And so it rumbles on. SFM has been pointing out the deficiencies in the way Scottish football has been run since it’s (SFM) inception.

    SFM and the numerous and varied contributors would be at fault if they chose to focus on the behaviour of only one club and ascribe all of the problems manifesting themselves today as solely the responsibility of that club. 

    Whilst it is certainly true that RFC was the catalyst in all of this, the lack of leadership and the furtive behaviour of many of the other actors in this drama has poisoned the environment. A period of glasnost and perestroika is sorely required as well as perhaps truth and reconciliation.
