Newco place all bets on null and void

254

Yesterday’s extraordinary outburst by Newco chairman (and bus provider to Celtic) Douglas Park, calling for the suspension of SPFL chief exec Neil Doncaster, and solicitor, Rod McKenzie looks like achieving nothing more than making the most bitter people in the land even more acutely afflicted.  Dundee failed to get their vote through on time, then asked the SPFL for time to reconsider their decision.

Be under no illusion, Newco’s objective, is not to finish the season on the field of play, it is to have the entire league campaign scrubbed from the record books.  They failed to win the League Cup Final, lost to Hearts in the Scottish Cup and fell apart in the league after the winter break.  They do not want Celtic to win the league if the season is called now and they do not want the season continued into what should be next season’s calendar.

They cannot stop Celtic on the field of play so they want to try to do so through a scorched earth policy that could burn the Scottish game to the ground.  No one knows more than Douglas Park what lies ahead for Newco, bringing the entire edifice of the game in Scotland down with them, may make the pill less bitter.

This is a dysfunctional football club that is using its significant media influence in an attempt to subvert the football authorities.  The country has enough paranoid fans prepared to fantasise like this, we cannot have our game controlled in this manner.  We cannot have our game hijacked by a dysfunctional club that survives on media influence and has never make an operational profit in its existence.

    Think their end game is to create chaos, deflect and tarnish 9 in a row. Not sure there is a way out for them. If Doncaster remains in position as expected, they will look foolish. SPFL holding firm as it stands.

  4. Did I read that right?

     

     

    The manky mob’s proposal was not competent, so the SPFL offered to help them put together one that was?

    Lady on SKY NEWS there says wearing a mask is a cultural thing.In HONG K. people wear a mask if they have a cold or a cough TO PROTECT OTHER PEOPLE.

     

     

    In YORK people with a cough or cold sit at the back of the number 4 bus and SNEEZE over everyone sitting in front of them. No tissue or hanky .Don’t even wipe on their sleeve.

    When all this N&V foolishness is over ….

     

     

    ….. I’d suggest the SPFL needs to have a strategic rethink of its relationship with BBC Sport Scotland.

     

     

    Don’t know the exact numbers but, for almost universal radio access plus a weekly TV highlights package, BBC are paying chump change.

     

     

    In some quarters such a rethink will be spun as spite.

     

     

    Let’s be clear – a small ragtag of unmanaged, out of control Sevco supporters at Pacific Quay are peddling a line (unabated) which is damaging the reputation, the brand and the value of our league.
