Doncaster Newco proposal doesn’t get the votes


An SPL general meeting today passed several less-significant Financial Fair Play rules (pay your taxes and players) but did not approve a proposal from chief executive, Neil Doncaster, that a mechanism should be introduced to parachute a Newco into the top division in Scottish football for the first time in history.

It would have taken 8 votes to see this controversial proposal pass, which it clearly didn’t get.  The SPL reserves the right to vote a Newco in at any point in the future, but those hoping to buy the assets of Rangers were not issued a ticket to the SPL today.


Perhaps connected to the above matter….  The SPL board will this afternoon consider issues relating to allegations Rangers rigged the system for over a decade with dual contracts.

There are too many permutations for me to digest these developments with any accuracy. At first pass, the news appears to be on the upside of what I was expecting earlier in the day.

  8. It begins to tell,


    ’round midnight, midnight.


    I do pretty well, till after sundown,


    Suppertime I’m feelin’ sad;


    But it really gets bad,


    ’round midnight.


    Memories always start ’round midnight


    Haven’t got the heart to stand those memories,


    When my heart is still with you,


    And ol’ midnight knows it, too.


    When a quarrel we had needs mending,


    Does it mean that our love is ending.


    Darlin’ I need you, lately I find


    You’re out of my heart,


    And I’m out of my mind.


    Let our hearts take wings’


    ’round midnight, midnight


    Let the angels sing,


    for your returning.


    Till our love is safe and sound.


    And old midnight comes around.


    Feelin’ sad,


    really gets bad

    I would say yes it is genuine, having a friend like d&p who needs enemies? I can’t imagine many out of the future picture having any incentive to help D&P keep the old picture concealed…

    HMRC are not even interested in them not paying their PAYE/NIC what makes you think they will be interested in this

    Tried to reply ages ago but couldn’t get onto the site for some bizarre reason. I think the following may answer your question:



    What kind of substances induce this kind of hallucination?



    The absolute most bizarre:


    AMBIEN 2000



    A typical hun spiked with Ambien 2000 in the water supply of their Luj will experience VERY intense, VERY crazy and wild hallucinations and dream-like surroundings- even on a small dose of this crazy jungle juice. One of these yahoos had been spiked and was on his computer when he started seeing the words kind of flitter around: “THE UNSEEN GREEN HAND IS TICKLING YOU!”. Then he looked at his stuffed orange monkey and it was GRINNING and rubbing its hands together (which most huns always seem to think is a forshadowing of the craziness that is about to ensue,”hold on to your hat, muthaf***er!”). Anyway, this monkey became his best trip friend and was named Nacho, and would later vaguely recall (he remembers about 20% of the experience) walking around his sectarian ghetto with the monkey strapped around his neck, as they talked to each other about Bill Werbeniuk’s giant y-fronts as a tent for midgets.


    He would talk to two headed plant people, plants with pistols, the tree god Agent Green… he would see lions chained up… and eventually… in all honesty.. became a ‘superhero’ like figure in his own world. He eventually could control his hallucinations, and so the hun thinks to himself ‘I want to see the titanic!’ and magically an ornate golden gate appeared, and people would come into focus behind the gate, with the titanic in the background.. The mad hun was watching everyone board the titanic!


    His fellow hun friends, a few of them, tell him how he called them and say how they were in the room with him, how they were about to go on a blue red and white rollercoaster. But he does not remember any of these events. Nor does he remember why he would wake up with his bed shifted out from his wall, waking up between the two on the floor wearing a union jack merkin.


    He would slide into open eyed dream-trances… and would suddenly find himself, for example, on a galleon ship with Britney Spiers as a Pirate… he was some sort of slave, and he was throwing spears over this wooden wall…this is what happens when you spike an Orange luj with Ambien 2000.






    If the prescription centre is closed and they are having problems withdrawing from their methadone then such behaviour can be even more bizarre:


    There is a story of one particular Broxburn ned hun who had woken from a buckfast/tramadol stupor he went to the prescription centre to find it locked. His head literally felt the size of a small child’s marble. After a time his hallucinations were so fierce he thought there were soldiers downstairs who were working for Opus Dei; so he locked himself in his room, didn’t show up to sign on for his giro, and somehow ended up with a big “X” on his chest made from metallic tape- he had also wrapped duct tape around his head that he called his “magic helmet”- later he was found shouting to cops in the street that: “Its to keep the Kafflick aliens oot ma nut!”.

    Jobo ….where are you, ya we shoite…..!!!?

  14. Neil canamalar Lennon hunskelper extrordinaire on

    they can track assaults on tinterwed


    with the new phone laws they can also find


    who gave the orders


    phone conversations are now kept on record


    select your usual suspects whittle it down


    the more they struggle the tighter it gets



  15. The thing to realise about shortbread sports tv and wireless is that there an entrenched clique of rangler supporters there who use every oppotuntiy to skew rangler news (positive spin) and Celtic news negative spin. Its been like this for years now. Some some reason I listen to their sports bulletins everyday and they operate to a biased agenda. They are one of the more extreme factions of the SMS.


    A couple of exceptions are Richard “nice guy” Gordon and Jim “Spencie” Spence.


    Mark Daly is outside the clique but hes not in the sports department . Hes a serious investigative reporter.

    It’s bad enough that this whole ragers thing interferes with my family life but it’s not on when it starts to interfere with my sleep.


    Is it too much to ask that promised emails appear at the promised time.
