    We’re Gonny Need Another Baw.
    Apologies for the downtime folks. Sadly we have lost all comments made on Saturday as we had to restore the site from a backup made at 5.00am on Saturday.

    Hoping that things will settle down now.

    I have arranged to do a Podcast with David Low next weekend – AFTER Dave's Deadline Day. I have also arranged to do a more in-depth interview with David on the 25 anniversary of the McCann takeover – particularly with regard to if and how the whole episode had any impact on the wider game in Scotland.

    The fans without scarves thing is nothing new of course, but still shocking to see. Kudos to FWS for presenting the facts – particularly the bit that highlights the failure of our national team to qualify for any international tourney since The Cheating Years began in earnest.

    The SFA and its satellites are utterly corrupt. Nepotism, cronyism, amateurism. No meritocratic behaviours or procedures of any kind – even when it comes to what goes on in the field of play. Run by third rate lawyers on behalf of fifth rate blazers. And the lawyers and the blazers know this

    No accountability. No shame. We have long been a laughing stock to those south of the border who see us as their pound-shop doppelgangers. They no longer even bother to laugh.

    Ridicule has lost it's novelty.

    Like Bill 1903, I wish Steve Clarke well in his new post. I do think he has more of the required skill-set than any other declared candidate, but I am a bit disappointed that his words about the SFA appear to be rather empty.

    Like most involved in the football industry and it's dependent satellites, the bottom line has seen him siding with (his words) the 'amateurs' at the SFA.

    I doubt there will be any more political utterances from him from now on. Not the first false prophet in the Scottish Football Testament – and likely not the last.

    Don’t see how Clarke, who has been lauded for speaking truth to SFA power, can avoid a hypocrisy charge if he takes the job. For that reason, I hope he doesn’t.

    It would appear then that UEFA's investigators have actually carried out their task correctly and with integrity. An integrity that contrasts starkly with that of the SFA's investigators, whose function was to cover up the wrong-doing that took place.

    It seemed odd to me that if high profile clubs could be taken on by UEFA, the RFC situation could be ignored, but perhaps it is the obscurity and scarcely significant status of Scottish football abroad that has allowed the corruption here (both the fraud itself and the subsequent cover-up) to go past unnoticed.

    They will no doubt be looking to take credit for the womens' achievement – even though none is due to them.

    Won't stop the passports being looked out of course …..
