Cough up for Killie


The SFA, SPL and SFL confirmed revelations yesterday that they met at Hampden on Friday evening and released a 126 word joint statement.  It claimed “all three parties have been involved in productive discussions for some time on the subject of league reconstruction”.

Be that as it may, you could put your house on the fact that there would be no talk of hastily-arranged league reconstruction in the next few weeks if there remained a possibility that SPL clubs would vote a Newco into the league at their meeting on 4 July.

Disingenuous: lacking in frankness, candour or sincerity.

There is no mention of subverting every rule in the game to ensure a team called ‘Rangers’ are positioned in as high a league system as possible.  The statement is completely disingenuous.  Having lost the battle to parachute Newco-Rangers into the SPL, Stewart Regan and Neil Doncaster have redrawn the battle lines.

Celtic supporters are the great cash cow that is expected to pay for the crimes of others.  It’s up to you if you want to Cough up for Killie (etc.).

    I heard from a CQNer with a contact that McGregor is next.




    (No podium nonsensew from me. I’m too auld for that. :)

  2. Cathedral View on

    Has there been an application for a new club to join the football set up yet?




  3. Margaret McGill on



    Why are Celtic not commenting? It affects the future of football in Scotland? which primarily means Celtic!

  4. Auldheid



    I think Paul67 threw in a wee comment a week or more ago that McGregor was out of contract or words to that effect. Don’t think it attracted interest at the time.

  5. Margaret McGill, the meeting happened behind Celtic’s back. Our club only heard about it from other sources, despite the fact that a Celtic director is on both SFA and SPL boards. The next stage is for the SFA and SPL to put their suggestions to the clubs. At that stage Celtic officially become involved.

  6. I have agreed with many that Celtic as a club saying nothing ion this whole matter has been correct but i fear it is getting to a time when the club will have to say something!!



    Unless they are really working behind the scenes and on a constant conference call with uefa or indeed fifa

  7. …..I thoroughly enjoyed the discomfort of the nasally challenged nose-diver……


    So many words, so much wriggling to avoid the truth, so much effort to evade the obvious………..



    If he hadn’t injured himself clogging a fellow professional he could have walked away a lot less gingerly….




  8. *THE KING VIC 67* on

    Can anyone confirm if there is a “NO TO NEWCO” demonstration at all SPL grounds planned and if so when is ours???



    Thanks in advance

  9. Get the feeling we are being lined up for the Masonic shaft. We must repel these evil forces by all means at our disposal.


    Immediate representations must be made to UEFA to articulate this injustice and highlight the corruptness of the SFA & secure our passage out where we can play on a level field. Paul McBride RIP

  10. Without the huns in the SPL what’s to stop the other 11 clubs voting through an equal share of gate money? That would nullify the effect of any boycott.



    (Any notion of disguising gate money as a club membership fee is unlikely to survive a legal challenge, before anyone suggests it.)

  11. Paul 67



    Why are Doncaster and Regan behaving in this fashion ?



    Are they being controlled by Ogilvie ?



    I could understand if they were Huns ?

    Do you know, or can you find out, who was at the meeting and can you tell us the names?

  13. Stairheedrammy on

    Its time to start drawing up our own plan in order to respond to this gerrymandering. The club needs to decide whether we accept this pro-newrangers move from their heavily conflicted SFA bretheren- or whether we make a fight of it. We have the financial power in Scottish Football, and its maybe time we started using it

  14. Paul67,



    Meetings about the restructuring of Scottish football have been taking place without the knowledge of Board members of the current bodies?



    Who has been involved in the discussions then? I would hope that employees involved have more sense than to be doing this off their own backs? At least the office bearers must be involved surely?



    But that still leaves questions to be asked about the processes involved here. Formal decisions should be taken at full Board meetings and not in smoke filled rooms.

    The equal gate money ruse will have an adverse effect on other teams as well



    I don’t imagine Hearts/ Hibs / Aberdeen want to share their gate money with ICT, St J etc who bring three men and a dug to their grounds

  16. Joe Filippis Haircut on

    Paul 67 I have been saying since the Rangers Fiasco many on CQN were to optomistic saying that they were dead.You yourself on several occassions quoted various rules that would work against them.This very afternoon Arty has taken a bit of stick for being to pessimistic however, there are a lot of twists and turns to take place in this story yet the Scottish football authorities are working hand in glove with Charles Green to minimize any damage to newco they will dump all the rules and make new ones to suit and you are begining to see it right before your eyes I have said previously every masonic and orange lodge up and down the country will be lobbying for newco and imo we cant afford to ignore what is going on.H.H.

  17. Oscar Wilde once said of the demise of one of the main characters in Dickens’ Old Curiosity Shop, “One must have a heart of stone to read the death of Little Nell without laughing.” A friend of mine has cruelly suggested that the same Wildean aphorism can be applied to the piece by Billy Dodds today in the Sunday Herald.



    Sadly he makes no comment on what he might have done if involved in a TUPE transfer as players are to Sevco Rangers just now.

    Granted, but over the piece I think most clubs would benefit.



    Maybe we could form a newco old firm with Mad Vlad to scupper the idea?

  19. Paul67



    Where do Doncaster et al have the mandate from to have these meetings without informing the members ie their employers

  20. They are not impartial to Our Perspective ….They see this as Fenian Revenge…



    Revenge it may be to some of us dear Celts.



    As Arbitrater of The Rules of Assosciation Football the very cornerstone is set on Partiality.



    It is Now Clear To Everyone that That Has Been Cast Aside in the Pursuit of hun triumphalism .



    It is of course wrong to wish Ill Will but this lot are Evil.



    lets not forget — wee Davie Murray …….and his brithers n treachury …Who tried in vain — Thanks be to Fergus —to take us OUT the Game AwtheGither !!!!

    A good turn out at CP would be good to show the SFA/SPL/other clubs that the Celtic support are together and will fight for our club and our money if need be.



    No To Newo and No To Shared Gate Money!!
