A week for leaks


This seems to be a week for leaks.  I hear one club recently refunded two investors to the tune of £500k each.  Don’t worry, it wasn’t Celtic, and I hear the club involved are one of the most financially secure in Britain.  I also hear the national broadcaster rejected a former presenter’s request to return to the fold.

Still nothing from the SFA, who were responsible for issuing associate membership to Newco Rangers, on the leak from the club’s board meeting that the Association expressed alarm that earlier information had leaked from chairman, Malcolm Murray.  Mr Murray recently instigated an investigation into the relationship between Craig Whyte and Charles Green, the nature of which could invalidate Newco’s associate membership.

Far from being alarmed at leaks, the SFA should be keen to see full disclosure.  Reports suggesting otherwise are alarming.  I am sure the SFA president has already demanded openness and clarity…….  Relax, standards of corporate governance at the SFA are as high as ever.

I am also sure the leak from Newco was not a shot across the SFA’s bows, providing a glimpse into what looks like some murky conversations which people at the Association could have much to lose from being exposed.

    Big swee



    If someone took offence at walkers comments and drapped the nut on him … should he just expect it ;)

    With regards to your last paragraph;



    In simpler terms, the SFA are worried the details of the ‘5 way agreement’ will become public knowledge?

    You should just rename the site “week o’ leaks” Paul. Or is that copyright?






    Or if you’re from the islands “Wik o’ leaks”.

    I remember John Peel sarcastically opining that Horace Silver’s best choon was – Rikki Don’t Lose That Number .

    Victor Feldman’s flapamba (a variant of a marimba) introduction to the song (opening the album) is cut from the original ABC single version. The MCA single reissue (backed with “Pretzel Logic”) includes the flapamba intro but fades out just before the actual end of the track. The introductory riff is a direct nod to Horace Silver’s jazz classic, “Song for My Father”.



    -lifted from Wiki/EWLM/EWTB.



    The sound of the ole flapamba is of course, just one of the many lustrous hues in ole Dick Byrne’s musical palette.



    That and ‘sound of cat being run over by nun on bicycle’.

    The janny Mather is coming under increasing pressure over all these leaks. In a statement today he said:


    “Peepul calling into question my janitorial skills are bang out of order! I was previously principal janny at Murray Park, I frequently had to deal with blocked lavvies and all sorts!


    At the moment I’m involved in a high level inquiry into who keeps peeing in the handbasin and I’m also opening a file to find out who didn’t flush the shunky in the home dressing room, mind you it took a fair few goes, I thought I was going to have to take an axe to it!


    So don’t tell me I don’t know what I’m doing”


    The best paid newspaperman in Scotland was locked in talks.

    There are only a handful of presenters/reporters on Clyde and Shortbread and they rotate them round.



    Jabba did present a phone in show on Shortbread on Saturday nights.

  11. “Prior to joining the Glasgow club, Traynor was employed by the Scottish newspaper the Daily Record. He was also presenter of BBC Radio Scotland’s football-based phone-in show Your Call.”

    The only Brian I have heard of connected with them is Brian Stockbridge



    The guy who mentioned a 100 mil turnover at Sevco



    “It would be nice to get to £100m…and it could go beyond that point,” said Stockbridge.

  13. Jabba presented Your Call on a Saturday night and Press Call on a midweek night for Sportsound.

  14. The Boy Jinky on

    Crushed nuts



    I used to work in a factory in Polmadie ( sipsini is still there now)



    We had a gents washroom with about 10 cubicles and same number of sinks and urinals



    An older guy was employed as the attendant … and he had a famous chopper / jobby axe.



    He often had to wield that axe to dipose of a ” U Bender “

  15. commentators and summarisers covering football are ,with a few obvious exceptions, terrible. I have the sound at a level where i can just hear the crowd noise but can’t make out the commentator. At half time i turn it over .

    Polmadie is the place to go if you want your train washed.



    A euphemism I’ve never heard before. I may use that next time I’m on the pull..
