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. Superbru Donations Update



    We asked the Superbru punters to vote on where we would donate the £361 we raised from competition entrance fees. The 4 options, suggested by members were:-



    Donate the money to Kilbryde Hospice


    Donate the money to Neuroblastoma Stage 4 Go Fund Me page


    Donate the money to Strathcarron Hospice


    Donate the money equally between all 3 options.



    Of the 19 votes received, 17 were in favour of splitting between the 3 nominated charities. So we will be donating £120 to all 3 (the remaining £1 will be added to Strathcarron’s £120).



    In addition to this sum, the prizewinners have donated their winnings too (this is not obligatory so the gesture is much appreciated). So our final donations will come to



    Kilbride Hospice – £200


    Neuroblastoma- £120


    Strathcarron Hospice- £121


    The Halliday Foundation- £20



    Thanks to all that made this happen. We hope to run a Last Man Standing in the near future to raise the next set of funds but we’ll announce that when we’re ready.



    Meantime- thanks to all of you and we’ll update the next Superbru results on 24th January. Our next deadline for forecasts is January 27th at 12.30

    Smokey – lots of energy, but a bit huffin’ and puffin’.



    They’ve looked dangerous and are the better team, but have created nothing…..so far.




    Thats awesome guitar playing wow.



    I used to speak with an old pal in the early morning hours about our tastes in music, Floyd was a group he wanted me to open up my mind to and give a chance….. I couldn’t get into them, yes there are some songs I liked but he couldn’t understand with my varying taste in music why I didn’t love them……. Anyhoo the song brought back happy memories about me and him from playing golf (I use that term loose🤣) ), the pub, and at the games….. A really lovely guy with a smile as wide as the Clyde………



    A wee glass of bacardi n coke raised to him.
