    Managerial Merry-Go-Round

    Good move by SFA. They're certainly getting one of the best managers in the SPFL. They're removing one of their most outspoken critics from the scene. They're also removing from Kilmarnock probably the one manager who might eventually have challenged the Glasgow duopoly. (imho) Disappointed to be honest.

    Ha, Ha, Rescinded! I blame Sixties.

    Ibrox latest...

    Believe Sevco have released a statement regarding the SFA's decision to investigate the incident.

    Ibrox latest...

    Never saw the match, haven't seen the incident. Tend to disagree that they will come up with a 'no case to answer' if it's as blatant as many are making out. From the very beginning of this season referees have been making 'honest mistakes' during Sevco matches, almost always erring to the benefit of the Ibrox club. It took some ludicrous decisions during a Glasgow derby to finally force some retrospective action by the SFA on one of their players. Such actions have had to be applied on numerous occasions since and the SFA are now under scrutiny by clubs who want to see rules fairly applied accross the board. A small number of managers have stuck their heads above the parapet. It is too late applying retrospective action when one club is amassing results which ultimately deprive other club(s) European football or get clubs knocked out of Cups. (Kilmarnock keeper sent off - later rescinded because Sevco player conned the ref.)

    Is Scottish Football truly incompetent?

    Me? Paranoid! Assuming that the plan will be implemented it's fairly clear that there have been discussions taking place for some time concerning an initiative that would help sevco resolve some of its financial problems thus avoiding an administration event. I mean they do seem to keep throwing money into the furnace. I believe it is no coincidence that the Ibrox club was the first to resign from the reserve league. The thinking being, look, we need to keep stripping the other 10 clubs in the league of their best assets to ensure that we can at least get to 2nd place each season. At the same time the reserve players bench on matchdays is only so long and we cannae fit all the newly acquired assets in so... hows about we ensure that the players that can't get in the squad on a matchday at least get regular competitive games in the Championship. This would also help with further loans from south of the border as we can promise that their players remain match fit. Of course the fans over the other side would never wear it if it was only sevco so... to keep the numbers even we'll have to include the other half of the divide in the equation. Look at the way the championship attendances would increase due to picqued interest in games against the OF even if they are their reserves. More money for the OF which will ensure the financial gap gets wider. What's not to like unless, of course, you happen to support one of the other 40 clubs in the SF leagues. What happens when OF colt teams assume positions 1 and 2 in the championship as they do in the premiership. How long would fans keep turning up to support what would be nothing less than a 'fix' for the benefit of the OF.

    Player Contracts + Transfers

    For Johnny B (Lincoln v Tranmere Rovers) A very entertaining hard fought nil-nil game in which James Norwood did look the most likely to score however, Lincoln have one of the best, if not the best defensive unit in League two. Norwood had about 2 x reasonable chances and 3 x half chances two went wide one went over and the other two were well saved by the keeper - Matt Gilks. To be honest Lincoln could well do with somebody like Norwood themselves in League-1 next season as the goals have all but dried up towards the end of this season. I'm not sure they can afford him though. Attendance: 9,658 (920 Tranmere supporters)

    Tranmere picked him up on a free from Forest Green who also picked him up on a free from ?? Current value 45k. On current form probably attracting some interest from Div1 or Championship clubs. Will give him the once over on April 22nd when Tranmere visit Lincoln.

    Other games on the go

    There must always be these Glasgow derbys' because without them Scottish football simply could not survive - allegedly. So say the media, the SFA, SPFL, the establishment, probably most Scottish club boardroom personnel, etc. etc. https://www.footballscotland.co.uk/spfl/scottish-premiership/scott-brown-celtic-rangers-charged-16075555?fbclid=IwAR3tudN_R2a4zt6JmUBE0l_k2w4PFOXaPQaVIHWJVioK-fZ5p_txrv4F7sA Wonder what BBC's Football Focus take on it will be, now that one of their famous sons is part of the permanent disgrace. Och will they even bother.

    Scotland's shame

    Saints Response: https://jamesdornanmsp.files.wordpress.com/2017/10/sl109-54207468.pdf Some very valid points IMHO and... at least the club responded to the survey - robustly! (To use a term frequently employed by the current ibrox incumbents) Very telling - those clubs that are the major source of the problems refused to respond at all.

    Saints vs Livi - 9/3/19

    Some good points there S-DT. Isn't it ironic that in a season where there has been good investment in the playing staff and a general consensus, by the support, that we have the best squad in years - the club can quite conceivably end up in its lowest position in the league for a number of years.

    Scottish Football

    Are you not missing the point TS in regard to the unique situation prevalent in Scottish football. After that debacle at Ibrox the other night I've linked an article by a current/former SNP/Saints FAN which, although it is from 2010, is even more relevant some 9 years further on. Clearly the current Ibrox entity cannot be allowed to fail as heaven and earth is being moved to ensure that they are ably assisted in their quest to collect a first trophy or league title. http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport1/hi/scotland/9196192.stm Briefly he says... "Yes, referees are entitled to support a team. They may support one of the two big teams. "But when Rangers or Celtic come to McDiarmid Park I would like to know what teams these referees are supporting. "And, if they are Rangers or Celtic supporters, I'd prefer they didn't referee a match between St Johnstone and one of the Old Firm."

    Tantamount to 'match fixing' in my opinion. They are desperate to win a trophy to justify the expenditure on players. By whatever means.
