  1. I just find it mind blowing and unbelievable that anyone can find it funny to mock a football disaster.....and that the media are not more on this. If this kind of behaviour was to happen in England mocking Hillsborough or Bradford the press would be naming and shaming and calling for jail time. No one should go to the football - regardless of team - and not come back and while rivalry and abuse is what it’s all about, there should be an unwritten code that shouldn’t be crossed. The abuse of Fernando also crosses that line as far as I’m concerned. I don’t recall Johnstone getting it. Maybe because he wasn’t as high profile around his condition or maybe because social media didn’t exist? Again, regardless of who you support, I think we should all applaud Fernando for the approach he’s taking, raising awareness of this absolutely horrendous disease. Along with Doddie Weir, if their efforts (in the face of disgusting abuse in Fernando’s case) can raise awareness and money to find a cure will poor excuses for human beings like that skinny runt complain if that helps one of their own? Hopefully his employers are aware of the shame that he has brought on them and take/have taken relevant action. And any bears looking to bump into him know he can be found in and around the local job centre.
  2. Classy gesture from our club. Football - particularly at the bigger clubs - has become detached from the community around than. Glad to see Rangers bucking the trend.
  3. So....apparently celtic are investigating a leak following their transfer plans being leaked online. They are apparently treating THIS as a criminal matter. The same club who don’t seem to think systematic abuse of children, trafficking said children to a paedo ring and covering it all up, paying hush money and perverting the course of justice to be a criminal matter. You couldn’t make it up.
  4. Ouch. Good point. But the point still stands.....there’s money to be made in that market. But maybe we’re late to the party.
  5. The Chinese market is massive....but they seem to be mad for the EPL. If we could corner a small bit of that market, build a support we could generate significant income through sponsorship and sales of kits. Getting kids into the soccer schools, get them to build an affinity with the club, take their Yen....
  6. I just can’t help but thinking...... Lennon has been very open about his mental health issues. I’m not going to mock him on here for that as it’s no real laughing matter and I’m sure there are many on here who have been affected by this directly or indirectly. Mind.org.uk lists the main causes of mental health issues. And number 1 on the list is childhood trauma or abuse. Is it too big a stretch to wonder if Mr Lennon is indeed a victim or has witnessed something at Crewe?
  7. Their statement has been released in the same place that c***ic released the details of their investigation yesterday.
  8. Thought the findings of the ‘inquiry’ were being released today. Or did I pick that up wrongly? More lies and deception
  9. How historical is the historical abuse? How many staff at that club who turned a blind eye are still employed there? From the tea ladies, admin staff, coaches right through to the CEO and any board members, if any of them were aware and kept quiet or facilitated the abuse they should be out. It’s the only way they can say the abuse is truly historical.
  10. Jock Stein and Jack McGinn are both heavily implicated in this issue. Jock Stein is a former employee of the SFA, Jack McGinn is a former president of the SFA. Their involvement with the SFA came after their involvement with C**tic and their cover up of and/or active involvement in abuse of children and protection and facilitation of paedophiles. It doesn’t take a genius to work out why the SFA are remaining pretty quiet on this issue.
  11. Well done to Tranmere Rovers on their back to back promotions.
  12. How can the SFA employ someone who gets a microphone and has a public dig at one of its members? I’d expect our Board to be contacting the SFA to make this very point
  13. I think the only way forward for Scottish Professional Football is to have a root and branch overhaul of the whole operation. Proper independent professional people should be brought in to conduct that review, not friends of friends, or retired officials who were part of the problem in the past. That is the only way forward, and that is the only way you have any chance of restoring any credibility with the general support of most of the teams in Scotland. ironically I totally agree with his final statement. Yet he is too thick to realise that the biggest recipients of benefits from the corrupt, old pals act system is in fact his own club. So I for one support Joe’s calls for an independent root and branch review. Be careful what you wish for......
