Give them an inch,,,

What a four weeks, and what a finale.
But there was no standing ovation, rather just mere head scratching in this case.
There was however an immediate ‘That it?’ from headquarters, oozing confidence.
And as predicted the idiots who still write for the on it’s knees ink and paper industry had to take a side pretty quick and pretty decisively, they didn’t disappoint.
Yet it’s not even the most important dossier out there.
It is the one that wasn’t ignored though and what a difference that makes as we are able to see from our own front row seats.
A month it has dominated the news before even being produced and everyday the snowball rolled it grew a little, which was supposed to lead to yesterdays avalanche.
More like a mouse roar.


The internet has made everything so transparent it’s beautiful. It’s simply a matter of having the actual facts open on one tab, and reading the bullshit on another whilst comparing the two. Of course the key is getting the 100% verified official facts first.
Then it’s easy to sit back and see who is full of it.


Admittedly the virus has exposed many a crack in many a system being an out of the blue unprecedented event. I mean a bat in China has rippled to civil war in Scottish football, surely that’s never happened before?
The wise man might have seen these former friends falling apart but I didn’t, at this stage anyway. That’s its over the root of all evil is zero surprise to me.


As Tims we should sit back and love it, yet it’s that serious our landscape is wobbling.
I guess the only thing now is to see how deep the rabbit hole goes, how bitter it will get, and my own query how will fuzz react if non Tims are the target of the klan.
Of course,Sevco and their fans and allies haven’t given up on this just yet. Various social media sites are suggesting that the dossier asserts that the SPFL broke its own rules by paying out prize money when they did to the lower division clubs. And that the TV deal which largely funds the SPFL probably won’t be paid in full for a truncated season-which is only right and proper,of course-which could lead to serious financial complications for the SPFL. £10m worth of financial implications,in fact.


The suggestion is that if the SPFL goes bust as a result,then those clubs would be forced to repay that money as it was wrongly allocated. Few would be able to afford that of course,which would probably lead to a compulsory winding up order.

There’s the wishful thinking scenario,and here’s mine.


Firstly,if our season is 80% complete and the TV deal is £25m,then the TV companies are only due £5m. Secondly and far more importantly,the SPFL is owned by its 42 members. As such,THEY decide on the rules. The rules are that prize money is paid out at the end of the season. The end of the season is considered to be when all games have been completed and finishing positions declared-or whenever the SPFL,at the direction of the clubs so decides.


The SPFL asked the clubs to vote on ending the season. The clubs voted YES. Therefore,season’s end has been lawfully declared. End of action. More grasping at straws from the huns as they pursue their scorched earth policy to destroy Scottish football.

We have come to expect no less.

Shit article as usual ?.

Vg bud. As ever.

I think Awe Naw and I ( a combination of the Whitburn Spur and the Easty Bash) will be chucking an article your way over the next few days. Give ye a day off. The article is basically about wanting Mahe suspended. Can’t reveal the detail yet but we will be sending a ‘dossier’ soon. We have a whistleblower . Naturally that whistleblower needs to remain anonymous so we will not be revealing your name. ?

Thanks for the response yesterday evening on season ticket refunds, renewals.

McCaff -CCB , noted your points too. Thanks

On the ‘ refund’ situation , two points

1. On this current season, yes, I can see the sense in the options. Return it, keep it, charity. Whatever.

2. My main point – Next season? My understanding is this. Happy to be corrected.

– IF, obviously a big IF , but not without some possibility, there was NO football next season, Celtic will have collected upwards of £30m from supporters. That money, will be gone by April 2021 or sooner. Paid to players, and possibly directors, on salaries.

Are you all happy to hand over your money now, with no guarantee from the club as to what will happen should the above scenario become reality?
If they turn round as tell fans, “should there be no football next season there will be NO refund” , fine. You know what you’re buying into.

Will they tell fans that the £39m in the bank will be eaten up prior to the supporters money being used?

No I’m my opinion. That £39m? Wtf is it for???

It’s not player purchases. We know that. It’s not for a rainy day, cos you’ll never get heavier rainfall than we have now? What is it there for?

May 8, 2020 7:10 am

I don’t think I’m betraying a confidence by pointing out that the above article wasn’t a solo venture by myself,bit of a joint venture as we dance round the endless permutations of that hun dossier. MAHE was correctly advised by our pro bono professionals to leave it alone,as there was a strong possibility that there was a devil in the detail. That The House of Hunnery was up to its usual Machiavellian tricks. Give them an inch and they’ll take a bloody liberty!

Hence the wishful thinking scenario,and mine. Which I believe is closer to the truth.

If we think about The Prince,we also have to think about people in history who played his part to the full. The scheming power behind the throne. Probably the most prominent of those are Thomas Cromwell,then Talleyrand,Metternich and Bismarck. None of them interested in supreme power because they knew it could never be achieved,only in projecting,protecting and controlling the power of those who had it.

Though each of their places in history is assured because of their deeds,all of them died as failures. Mainly because their overlords finally removed them from position. Those overlords may have rued those dismissals.

So bang goes the hun Machiavelli theory. They don’t have the wit and wisdom of The Prince,nor of his real life characters. They’re a big blustering billyboy bullyboy box of buffoonery bound for bankruptcy. And they know it. And it hurts them so badly.

It hurts me too,of course. I’ve got a bloody stitch in my side from laughing,and I can’t even go outside for a decent attempt to walk it off.

May 8, 2020 7:25 am


Glad you went to A&E yesterday,but that’s it for you mate. No venting your spleen or bending over to do someone a favour. That could pop out any time. Dae whit yer telt!

(Hark at me,never done the above. CCB and ATOB are only two on here who could attest to that. There’s a helluva lot more. So don’t do as I do,do as I say!)

More than happy to post the article for you,old bean. Grateful,in fact. With any luck,we will post it for a weekend article for maximum effect.

Re the season tickets. I don’t have a problem with fans paying up for next season as that is the accepted method. I’ve raised concerns for years on CQN and now here that we were being railroaded into paying for a product unknown as we didn’t know who we were likely to sign over the summer,nor who we were likely to sell. But heyho…

Now of course,the reality is somewhat different. As above but add in that we don’t know if we will even be able to watch any games,even if they are played! Difficult,but I think I’m right in saying that the rights of the buyer are protected,and that if no product is available then a refund is applicable.

For that reason,I expect a refund of £52 this season for the hun matches and another of 3x£30 for the unplayed games this season,and similar to apply for next season. I also expect our “warchest” to be used before supporters funds,as they are ringfenced.

Having said that,an explanation from someone who is highly paid for his services would be nice.

Here’s another thought that’s been whipping around my head .

Now that the ‘dossier’ has been unleashed, and with the exception of a couple of questions that need answered, and no doubt will be answered, it amounted to pretty much nothing, as alluded to in Bobbys article today.

What will the huns do next?

Attention will now turn to administration. What if?
The pressure will be ramped up on the SPFL now to ensure there are NO penalties. No points deduction.

There exists a real possibility that EVERY club, bar one, will file for administration.

Now if that materialises, in every division except the top one, whether or not a 15 point deduction is applied, is a moot point. The level playing field would exist . Everyone has the same deduction.

It won’t come to that though, because it’s absolutely certain, a vote for NO penalty point deduction will be carried.

So will Celtic file for admin? No. Not with £39m plus in the bank, and £30m to come from supporters. So £70m in the bank as a starting position. That will last a season. No doubt.

The huns? They’ll go into admin at the first opportunity. Why wouldn’t they?

So we could be facing a scenario whereby the ‘best run club’ in Scotland is effectively the only one punished. Instead of being 15 points clear we will start on the same number of points as everyone else.

In effect, that bank stash will see us as the only club punished.


May 8, 2020 8:00 am


I raised that possibility before,that the huns are viewing a crisis as an opportunity. I’ve thought a bit about it since.

That’s the good thing about a site that doesn’t rely on inside info or leaks. We do opinions,our take on things. We don’t do the I’ve been told,or I’ve heard stuff. Our stuff is only as valid as anyone else’s!

I reckon that most of the SPFL would agree to it in principle. Why not? The alternative is not pleasant. Ayr Utd,for instance,could end up with finances that Whitletts Vics up the road would guffaw at. But it brings back into play the scorched earth scenario. And this time,for the huns.

We know that Sevco is bust. We know that they have run at a perennial loss,and even soft touch SoftBank gave up on that eventually.

But let’s look at the assets and liabilities of Sevco in such a situation. Losses were covered by loans from third parties and from directors/Club1872 etc. The latter were converted into confetti equity,shares in a worthless company. I’ll deal with the former in a minute.

There are also outstanding liabilities due to court cases,the most prominent being with SDIR which has been decided. Only the amount,c£10m,is yet to be declared. Ideal Sports and Hummel will probably be another £5m,plus Memorial Walls,another £1.1m plus costs. Who knows what else,plus any tax liabilities-and don’t put it past them as Whyte did it too. Took them for £9m in six months,remember?

Also footballing debts. Outstanding transfer fees. All of the above take precedence over shareholder funds. And as creditors,they are owed more than any directors loans-because they have been converted to shares!

Additionally there is the Close Bros debt,which is secured on virtually everything which isn’t nailed down. Apart from Ibrox Park itself,and that’s only because they couldn’t find the deeds.

My point?

It’s back to scorched earth,mate. If they try that,it’s not admin but another liquidation. They don’t have the votes to win and they will have nothing left but a shell of a stadium. And the directors will have nothing left at all. They stand to lose more than anyone by pushing for administration without penalty. They will lose everything.

Plus,of course,their coveted place in European competition.

May 8, 2020 8:09 am

The problem with typing as you think is that thinking is quicker than typing!

I’ve added a bit re admin v liquidation to the above post. I’m fat-fingered,not fast fingered. Having said that,I didn’t touch a keyboard till 2009 so I think I’m doing not too bad.

“Much of the dossier is also outside my range of expertise. I’m a football guy and a layman, not a lawyer who can go through these matters with expertise.

While I was out shopping for essentials in Larkhall I had someone shouting from across the street asking if I’d seen the Rangers statement.

I shouted back: “Naw mate, I’ve not seen it yet.”

He replied: “It’s 200 effin pages son.” I shouted back: “It’s 200 pages? If that’s the case then there’s no chance of me reading it.”

I have to be honest and admit I don’t read books.”

James Cairney from The Herald

SO, is it a smoking gun after all? Or is it just a damp water pistol?

This was the debate that was raging in Scottish football during the build-up to the release of Rangers’ dossier, where the Ibrox club argued that “Scottish football’s credibility has been badly damaged by recent events and the resolution proposed by the SPFL Board and approved by members is seriously compromised”.

Let’s get the obvious out of the way right now: the first half of Rangers’ assertion is absolutely correct. There cannot be a single onlooker who has watched the events of the last few weeks unfold and concluded that this is an example of good governance. So much of the all-important detail has been obscured, lost, or only came to light after the resolution to conclude the lower leagues – and continue to monitor the situation in the Premiership – was ratified.

The decision to publish the results of the ballot before Dundee had cast their vote was farcical in every sense. There isn’t a democratic voting procedure in the world that would follow suit. The issue of whether or not concluding the season was the only means of releasing prize money to cash-strapped clubs was only clarified last weekend, when SPFL chief executive Neil Doncaster appeared on the BBC’s Sportsound radio programme.

Clubs weren’t given adequate time to read the 118-page briefing document and formulate a response before the vote went ahead. And when it came to the voting procedure itself, clubs were given the option to change from a ‘no’ to a ‘yes’, but not vice-versa. The grievances that clubs such as Partick Thistle and Stranraer – both of whom were relegated as a result of the vote, despite having a quarter of the season left to play – have against the governing body are legitimate.

All of these things undermine the credibility of Scottish football. All of these matters are problematic. And, unquestionably, all of these issues demand serious answers. Scottish football and good governance rarely go hand in hand, and this situation was no exception. In this regard, Rangers are right.

But is the resolution seriously compromised? It seems a bit of a stretch to suggest so. Ultimately, clubs were voting for the release of prize money. That’s all that mattered to them. Particularly lower down the SPFL pyramid, teams that have existed for over a hundred years are fighting for their very survival. Clubs are primarily concerned – and rightly so – of simply coming out the other side of this crisis intact. They needed the cash, and concluding the season was the only way to do so.

The release of SPFL funding could only have happened in theory, not in practice, as Doncaster explained. The governing body would not have been able to carry out their due diligence on each individual loan to clubs, and there would be no guarantee that it would have ever been repaid. It would be no surprise if some clubs go out of business before a ball is kicked again in Scotland and for each one that does, it would have been the SPFL that paid the price had the loans been granted. The governing body’s priority is the safeguarding of the future of Scottish football and had loans been issued without terminating the season, it would have done the precise opposite.

The SPFL board in part exists to protect the organisation’s finances, and the decision they came to was the logical one. No bank or lending organisation would issue loans with no guarantee of the money’s return – and in this instance, the result of those fiscal calculations may even have revealed that not only was there no guarantee, but it was in fact likely that some clubs could fold. The SPFL has been burned by such a decision before, Doncaster explained, pointing to the example of Gretna in the 2007/08 season.

The biggest ‘revelation’ from the dossier was the allegation that Doncaster knew that the SPFL could be liable to the tune of £10million if the season was brought to an end, due to refunds being made to BT Sport and Sky for the unfulfilled fixtures.

But isn’t this blindingly obvious? In the event that the season is concluded early, would we really expect television companies to continue to pay to broadcast matches that aren’t being played? The heads of each of the 42 SPFL clubs are all businesspeople – there is simply no way that they would not have realised this. The precise figure may have been in doubt, but the fact that a refund would be due could not have possibly escaped their attention. It’s the same story with the “substantial difficulties” surrounding league reconstruction. The dossier states that this requires the consent of the SPFL’s broadcasting partners – again, is there a single football fan in Scotland that did not know that Sky will demand four Old Firm games a season? It is a stumbling block, sure, but hardly an insurmountable one.

Similarly, it is no secret that clubs conspired before, during and – in Dundee’s case – after the vote was conducted. Club chairmen and CEOs discuss relatively inconsequential ballots among themselves prior to casting their votes; is it really any surprise to learn that they did so during the most important vote that Scottish football has seen in decades?

Have the SPFL covered themselves in glory during this debacle? Absolutely not, and I defy you to find a single person who thinks they have acted well throughout this fiasco. Was the vote conducted to a decent standard? Again, few would suggest that it was. The real burning question at the heart of all of this is whether the SPFL are involved in a nefarious plot to further their own vague agenda, or if they are simply a poorly run organisation. All the available evidence points to the latter conclusion. Quite simply, incompetence should not be equated with corruption.

May 8, 2020 10:02 am


Good lad!

I mentioned earlier that my pal’s tipple of choice was thin on the ground,but there are five supermarkets between where I live and where he lives. And more if I take the scenic route. If I see his beer in any of them,I’ll buy it regardless. It doesn’t look good for me and him-and others!-sharing a pint,a conversation,a wee argument while agreeing as you do any time soon. Looking like six months in total,because the last time we did that was St Patrick’s Day.

Of course,five supermarkets means I might as well cut a stick when I see it. It wasn’t just his beer shelves which were empty. It was most of them. So,plan is to stock up on stuff which isn’t going to go out of date in the next three or four months while and if it is still available.

The Scottish Sun claims to have a trail of the What’s App conversations of bullying, coercion and threats. It reads like people on one side relating what others have told them that somebody else said to someone else. I have c& p’d it as best I can (love the ICT guy’s use of the word “Socialist” as a pejorative term- tells you a lot):-

RANGERS claim that WhatsApp messages between three Championship clubs show evidence of bullying.

The messages involved Dundee’s Eric Drysdale and John Nelms, Partick’s Gerry Britton and Jacqui Low and Caley Thistle’s Ross Morrison and Scot Gardiner.

Details of their claims emerged into the public domain yesterday as part of Rangers’ 200-page dossier, even as Ibrox managing director Stewart Robertson clarified that he “at no point” spoke about “corruption” – a word that was used in the SPFL statement – or alleged “bullying and coercion by SPFL staff”.

The WhatsApp messages include . . .

Drysdale: Mike (Mulraney, Alloa chairman) just phoned, raging. He is repeating what Ross McArthur (Dunfermline chairman) said that Premiership clubs will pull reconstruction talks if we block the board proposal. He also says Rangers amendment is not competent. He also irrationally says that he will

insist on a 10 way equal split of prize money.

Low: This is now bullying.

Gardiner: I hope to play against MM at a game of poker some time soon. I’d really fancy my chances now I have seen his bluff face.

Gardiner: MM has just tried to call me. I couldn’t stomach taking the call so didn’t.

Drysdale: I’ve known Mike for 15/20 years and he’s never changed – but I think we all see right through him.

Nelms: I am currently being threatened by Ross McArthur.

Morrison: I asked him to put his threats in writing and also asked would this socialist division be taken on by the SPFL?

Britton: “voting slip image” captioned Happy Easter Rod

Drysdale: Alea Iacta est, as they said in Ancient Rome. Dundee vote submitted.

Drysdale: Guys it seems, genuinely, that our vote was not received. I give you my solemn word it was sent but not received.

John now, accidentally, finds himself in a stronger negotiating position and is now being contacted by the big hitters. John asks that you trust that he will now try to use the leverage he has.

Gardiner: Seriously??

Drysdale: I’m imagining Neil will have been talking to Peter just after 5, and the SPFL not having received our vote, has led to further discussion with John of which I currently have no knowledge.

I know no more. If I have said a word of a lie, feel free to call me a liar the next time we meet. I hope you trust that I am being completely truthful.

I believe die Hunnen see the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic as an opportunity to ‘level the playing field’ in Scottish football. Realistically they were never going to be able to rival Celtic financially again. TIAR was looming on the horizon as well as Celtic reaching and surpassing the ’55’ in the near future. Sevco were, or should have been a receding dot in our rear view mirror .Thanks to PL & DD they were allowed to stay just close enough so we could read their new number plate of RFC 2012, but that’s another story. Just as some unscrupulous scum bags have successfully used the ongoing Corona tragedy for their own personal gain i have little doubt Sevco are attempting to do the same. If things go as i suspect they will we may well regret not having buried the still twitching corpse of RFC 1872 while we had the opportunity to do so.
