The Man from D̶e̶l̶ ̶M̶o̶n̶t̶e̶ Dundee says Yes!
Yesterday seen our club of choice put both hands on the trophy and we await the nod to formally lift it. The big decision came back with a thumbs up to ratify the deal and begin the kerfuffle that to be fair needs to happen. Hell will break loose and a head or two might roll, a club might die again due to financial mismanagement again, but at the end of the day there was only one team that could have been given the league trophy full stop, however much that might upset some.
We weren’t getting beaten on the field of play, and now we wont be beaten off it, so ultimately justice will be served as far as we are concerned. Our rivals have been unable to string two domestic wins together yet this decade, they hadnt a hope in hell of catching us. At Christmas after THAT win many would have said otherwise but they blew it bigtime, with Lenny coming onto a winning formula at our relaxed but top notch winter training camp while they had a second rate holiday without star striker which lead to a finger pointing fest and even different aircraft seating zones.
We should all be glad this horlicks of a situation the governing bodies have created is coming to a close fairly soon, after the big big meeting of the biggest on the 23rd I believe. We all knew they were incompetent but they have shown it to the entire world now, have made an enemy of the nations second biggest club, and have put the worst people in the entire footballing setup in charge of the group looking at reconstruction! Never interrupt your enemy eh. And its certainly not the case that the enemy of my enemy is my friend, not with these clowns.
One gets the feeling the Dee chairman just knew this was his moment to get his name out there in the annals of Scottish footballing history. In fairness, his vote does have the potential to become seismic, and perhaps held the power of life and death over some clubs by releasing vital funds. His lengthy ‘defender of the game’ statement even took a dig at the games many conspiracy theorists, which is kind of ironic as he has unwittingly unleashed a wave of his own.
Yes the bears aren’t happy, they were totally convinced that Stevie would hand Lenny his head on a platter, with dignity of course, but this is seen as a Timmy plot. We even own the lawyer apparently. The calls for an independent inquiry into this, that and everything will grow into hysteria, and we will no doubt hear plenty of Asterisk talk.
The governing bodies have left themselves wide open with their confusing process, and will be the perfect deflector shield for the Ibrox boardroom and Stevie himself will always cling to THAT victory and will probably stick his chest out and claim to the world that ‘I never lost a full league to Neil Lennon!’.
I find it hilarious and somewhat reassuring that they couldn’t muster the votes they needed in what they believed was their own back garden. The papers will still claim they are top dogs of course even though we have the proof otherwise.
A major fall out between Hampdump and Ibrox had to happen someday, and it was always going to be about money or European entry, or both. One day corporate laws were actually going to need adhering to, and then personal allegiances ( and nipple and knee pledges ) would clash with fiduciary duties leaving someone high and dry screaming. This scrap really needs to happen for the entire game to move on, not just a skirmish but a full on dog fight. Theres no time like the present, theres no distractions in the way of international jaunts or cup finals, there is zero excuse plus the nation is watching.
If another death is the price, so be it.
If it cleans out both buildings, even better.
We take this opportunity to officially congratulate Cove Rangers, Raith Rovers, and Dundee United for their successful campaigns and look forward to Tannadice trips once again in the future. The above is by Mahe. As usual the email address is email@example.com for any guest contributions.
