Who would have thought that an article about “the songbook” would have brought such a considered and polite debate? My grateful thanks to McCAFF for penning the article,and to all who argued their point of view with such passion and fortitude,and all without once crossing the line. The art of diplomacy is not dead,though sadly neither are the sectarianism and racism endemic throughout Scottish society.
As a particularly ugly example of this,it seems that Morelos is on a wee charity trip to Colombia. At least he isn’t using money raised to take his pals and his son on a white water canoeing jolly,although I’m sure the relevant charities were eventually delighted with the money that came their way as a result. Not that I recall much about the latter,mind-maybe I was otherwise occupied. Anyway,some scumbag sent a tweet to the journalist assisting him on this venture,telling her that she will be “six foot under” if she ever sets foot over here.
Needless to say,this moron has handily chosen a handle which ties him however tenuously to our club
Now,I don’t do Twitter,but I did try to find evidence of other tweets from this account. To no avail. Perhaps someone on here,one of The Twitterati,might have better luck. Either way,I’m sure that if Police Scotland ask Twitter for details of the account,the company will be only too happy to oblige. Can’t have their good name being dragged through the dirt,after all. Perhaps the Colombian Embassy in London might be interested in protecting one of their own citizens and bringing this scumbag to justice? Must be pretty boring for them just now,what with their house guest long gone. Ironically,he could probably have tracked the guy down for them!
So over to Police Scotland,then. I expect no stone unturned on this one-and if no culprit is identified,that will itself raise some interesting questions. I’ll leave you all to speculate on that one!
In other news,the huns seem hell-bent on poking a tiger with a sharp stick,having once again asked for a deferment on the case between themselves and Mike Ashley. I’m not sure that they have thought this through,and it seems to be another example of short-sightedness,of a short-term gain guaranteeing more long-term pain.
Let me explain. Next season gets underway in less than six months time. They have already been told that the final year of the Hummel deal cannot be exercised,and that Ideal Sports cannot sell their retail merchandise. They will need time to negotiate with a new manufacturer and also with a new retail partner. With SDI lurking in the background,I’m not so sure that any manufacturer will be interested. Apart from the risk of losing their investment,they wouldn’t want to risk losing the goodwill of the largest outlet in the UK. And rival retailers will certainly look at how much merchandise was shifted by Ideal Sports and reckon they might be better off agreeing to sell OJ Simpson’s new range of hand fashions. I would despair if it wasn’t so funny,except that I reckon that both Mike Ashley and Judge Persey aren’t quite so amused. This could run and run,even while the huns have nowhere to go. Can’t even appeal to a Scottish court,the poor sods.
Which brings us back nearer home,and the advent of the beginning of the next part of the season. Dropping a mere eight points in our first twenty games wouldn’t normally be viewed as not good enough,but we are in a very strange title race this season,as you know. I’ll deal with that nearer the time,on Wednesday prior to our league match away to Kilmarnock. It looks like we will be heading into the tie against Thistle on Saturday its only one new player on our books. At least Patryk Klimala is a striker,and one who looks the part on the dreaded YouTube clips. He will feel at home on Saturday-his old club,the Polish Jags play in similar colours! It makes good sense in my opinion to throw in a match fit and eager young fella against lower league opposition,giving him an hour or so to advertise his worth. Over to you,Lenny. The depth of our squad is frequently hailed as an advantage-it’s time to use it wisely.
