Scottish Government, SFA and SPFL will find evidence to start playing in Aug


We live in a political world.  With most of Europe either already playing football, training or with dates set to resume, the Scottish Government will fall in line and grant football a return on 1 August.  They will be able to cite supporting medical evidence, but, more importantly, there is no appetite to plough a lone furrow on this issue.

Covid testing kits and processes are more readily available now than a month ago, this situation will hopefully significantly improve before contact training resumes several weeks from now.  Premiership clubs must and will find the money to test, train and play games.

While Peter Lawwell has been invited to the videoconference, it has been made clear to representatives from the Scottish Government, the SFA and the SFPL that the technology does not allow him to sign autographs.

Ann Budge relentless drive to win friends and influence people continues unabated.  Jim McInally, now manager at Peterhead, said of her reconstruction plan, “It’s just not true that no club has been disadvantaged. It just shows a total disregard for other clubs.”

In a statement that verges on presidential (US presidential, that is), Budge told Sky Sports News, “My understanding, although I could be wrong, is if the situation was deemed to be sufficient of an emergency, that the board can choose to implement a change. That’s what I have been told, but it’s hearsay, I’ve not read the rules to that level of detail.”

She’s not read the rules, it “could be hearsay” and she could be wrong.  It is unfathomable how Hearts have performed so poorly under her stewardship.  Still, at least she’s charming Hearts future opponents.

    Very stylish article Pablo. Respect.



    Paras 1 & 2 serious and businesslike.

    So our CEO is neither the Messiah nor a very naughty boy but is, in fact, Scottish Football administration’s only rock star?






    Hail hail



    Keep The Faith

    Reasons to be a bit cheerful during COVID:



    1. Stewart Robertson is the Managing Director of “Rangers”


    2. Ann Budge is the CEO of Hearts


    3. Peter Lawwell is the CEO of Celtic

  7. This gave me a chuckle.






    OCCUPATION. – Burglar






    Everybody is at hame.

  8. Congrats fellow Tradamus Lampada Ron.



    BTW there’s an excellent interview with Peter Goldie on Celtic Underground, he came tae St Pats when I was there although he never taught me, his brother Frank, Science teacher, did.



    He talks well of our club and also mentions playing for Duntocher Hibs.

    Britain not getting into Greece when it reopens,no wonder with death rate we have

  11. !!Bada Bing!! on

    He lied at the briefing yesterday to suit his agenda,figures up from last week, those 2 senior ‘ medical experts ‘ are as guilty as him

  12. Bada


    Unfortunately before we went into lockdown and indeed even today we’re still letting flights land without any checks or quarantine requirements – might explain our high infection rates at the start

  13. !!Bada Bing!! on

    Gene- one of the main factors in the high death rate, not closing airports, would that not strike you as a major priority? Obviously not…

    I only took science for 3 years starting in 1961 being taught by Dan Burns then Frank Goldie.



    I was no good at science so dropped that along with history and followed a path of Spanish, French, Latln and Geography.. Mathematics and English were compulsory.




    Thanks for the congrats too.



    I have a rainbow and a little Celtic bear in my front window for the show of support for NHS and care workers etc. I have pinned the St Pat’s badge on its scarf.

    Had Dan and Froggie Kearns, only got Frank for English. took the Science Tech root which served me well.

  18. There’s been no one in the Covid-19 Ward in D&G for two weeks so my middle daughter has been returned to her own ward for nursing duties. Result.


    RON B – interesting conversation you are having with Tontine. Will ask you a question in the card you will receive by snail mail.


    What’s the score about creative accountancy over at Genk? And have you ever known a son of a world beater to be anywhere near as good…..I give you Cruyff, Weah, Pele, (a GK ffs), Dalglish, even Henk’s boy. Plenty more, I bet.

  23. I can remember my dad going on about biased commentators in the 1980s.


    Like a lot of us, I’ve been watching old game on youtube lately and I can safely say that if Jock Brown and Archie Mac commentated like that now, you would think it was Celtic TV. compared to the hurtin hun pash we get now.
