Spoiled Child FC have their Trump Jan 6 moment


The SFA issued a statement yesterday afternoon in response to Newco’s comments implying inappropriate action by the VAR adversely affected them during their recent defeat to Celtic.  It addressed three matters:

The Newco penalty claim was a “Subjective handball… that the VAR did not deem it a sufficiently clear and obvious error”.  The VAR did not claim the incident was not a penalty, just that it did not meet the “obvious error” threshold.

Notwithstanding the subjective nature of the above decision, it goes on to say that at the meeting, “There was an overall consensus that the incident could not have led to a penalty kick being awarded in any event”.  So we all agree, no penalty!

The statement concludes by attempting to chastise Newco for their behaviour and its potential consequences, “recent incidents in European football that have compromised the safety of match officials”  They failed to mention incidents in Scottish football last year which led to two prosecutions following a Newco complaint against a referee from a similar ethnic background to Saturday’s VAR.

Newco is like a spoiled child.  Not getting its own way results in a tantrum, where no reaction is off the table.  They are not adults, they will not learn, if anything, they have set a new level of behaviour they are compelled to repeat.  The SFA statement will have no restraining effect.

As always, it is not the nutters around the boardroom table who do the real damage.  They simply inspire the (genuinely) tiny percentage of violent and dangerous individuals, who now feel a reaction is justified.  Newco are Team Trump, this is their January 6 play and we all know it.

This is shameful behaviour from a shameful football club.

  1. Paul The Spark on

    The Huns are on a roll. Hamilton have now had to apologise after calling them The Glasgow Rangers on a social media post. What an embarrassment 😂

  2. Back to Basics - Glass Half Full on

    This headline made me laugh out loud.



    (To be fair – it reflects the mood of a couple of posters on here yesterday)



    “It’s the 7th of January and all we have is rumours of players moving to Celtic. What’s going on?”



    … Or as I prefer to view the situation …



    “It’s the 7th of January.”

    Crossroads is probably my favourite Clapton / cream track. Also like Cocaine a lot.



    At the other extreme, Crossroads was probably one of the worst pieces of TV ever made.

  6. Watched all of the Mr Bates v the Post Office drama.


    Every emotion experienced, incredible what they were/are being put through



    The people lying, covering up mistakes and ruining ordinary people’s lives… As BRRB would say……




  7. bigrailroadblues on



    The second solo by Clapton is incendiary. A magnificent guitarist.




    Aye indeed.

  8. Good morning all from a -4 Garngad.



    Willie Collum saying prayers/mass should have no bearing on his ability to do his refereeing.





    Of course huns will make it all about his religion not like he is in some secret, funny handshake institution or naybe he is.


    Not like he was in a loyalist pub.


    Not like he follows a sectarian walk every 12lf.



    Watch the outpouring from supposedly non biased pundits and organisations.



    Back to work mañana boohoo.



    Going to try and stay off the drink for 1 full month. Help.

    Watched it last week and credit to the Tory MP featured (Arbuthnot) – something you don’t read on CQN.


    It never ceases to amaze how long it takes government to sort these things out – unless it’s for their mates.

    Good points re Huns and Orange order, Masonic connections etc.



    Off to the golf…..been cancelled for the past two weeks owing to rain !



    Cheerio for now.

  13. Just read Jacksons take on the Scum uproar.Dear God,it really defies belief.Especially on 2011,which he somehow manages to get into the story,sympathising with them.

  14. The Post Office scandal.Wonderfully scripted and acted.Television at its very best


    Shameful does not even clone close.

  15. GENE



    Good mornin.


    Agree about your Tory comment.



    There’s only ever been one Tory I could listen to…..and believe he was a good guy



    Rory Stewart!



  16. The Post Office scandal is a disgrace and embarrassment to the UK.



    These senior Post Office employees/directors/ceo where/are plain liars and they should be prosecuted as a matter of urgency and stripped of any honor’s/pensions etc.



    The sub postmasters should have all charges dropped immediately and a public apology made to them stating that all convictions are herby quashed.


    I would go as far as to say that each sub postmaster should get at least 1million pounds in compensation, at least.



    D :)

  17. David 66,



    And every establishment figurehead connected with the scandal investigated with the same vigour.



    Civil Servants, CEO’s, Government ministers and not least Post Office lawyers who knowingly prosecuted innocent people.



    This has been covered up for years as innocents were hounded some to death.



    And some on here question why we believe in ” conspiracy theories ” and don’t trust the establishment.
