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.

  3. Forest mates,lived there for 7 years,telling me as far as they know,Mc Kenna on around £ 50 grand a week at Forest,+ bonuses.A lorra lorra dosh for our scummy neighbours.£ 100,000 per week for Silva.

  4. Cowan and Gosgrove really rewrote history this afternoon. Bemoaning the deid team’s antics they mentioned the refs strike, suggesting that there might be another. They failed to inform that the ref who had occasioned that strike had been found out to be a cheat and a liar. Then they went on to recall how the 2 they had spoken to recently, both with Catholic sounding names, had affirmed that the refs didn’t act with bias, conscious or not. Sure their former boss was found to be a bigot and when he was forced out, they found him a promotion. Only in dear old Scotland…

    McCoist is looked after in the Media,they must be all Huns in these sports departments




    The Fat Gardener continually REPEATS himself, and the constant ” ABSHOOTLUTEY” etc etc does ma heid in.



    He NEVER DISGAREES with anything the main commentator says.



    The WORST Co commentator…EVER.


    Lee Dixon and Jermaine Jenas ( and others ) are also CRAP….But McCoist beats them all.






    … the refs didn’t act with bias, conscious or not…




    😁Being conscious of being unconscious 😉

    Canny be doing with prks celebrating winning tackles




    Playing to the gallery. Imagine Danny doing that. He’d have been like a perpetual clapping seal.

  11. Zero movement from celtic since the transfer market opened. Had lots of time to sort out transfer targets but no, the time to be busy in the background was months ago, busy in the background my arse, the folk running out club are a pure joke.



    Seriously pissed off with celtic, can’t be arsed with the excuses anymore. Guys getting paid a small fortune to tell us how difficult it all is

  12. Lawwell/Lawwell putting £60M at risk—- what a surprise. Are they caught in the headlights and afraid of blowing another £20M.



    The manager has given the gruesome twosome their homework and as Stephbhoy67 said targets should be in place. They need to deliver after Manager, Team and Fans won the last 4 critical games.



    Lawwell/Lawwell will be judged after this window is over. Third time lucky after the previous 2 shambolic windows.

    You post a negative post which isnae that new for you and 22 minutes later buffalo bill reiterates it wtf all we need now is the northern lights scheidt master with his words of wisdom or should I say lack of.

  14. If Brendan canny win the league with the players that he has already said he is happy with then he needs to be hunted!



    Then again Brendan`s other face started all of his mental chess p#sh after we slipped on a few banana skins…”Oh `we` need to get the quality right this time…and other guff…”



    The PLC need emptied 29 years ago when wee fly man Fergus did the dirty on the Rebel Consortium ensuring that we would need hand outs from fans with no arse to their troosers six months doon the road after wee sleekit McCann sacked Luigi and gift wrapped the next 3 league titles to the huns…oh but `we` canny look at it through those brutally honest lenses says the Tonetine Tim types of Father Thyme travelling grifters with all thur fairy stories and other inane claptrap.



    Clap The Board Clap The Board fkn lol

  15. I’m fine.



    Last night we took our dog Maple on her first train trip into town to go to Babbity Bowsters where she was the centre of attention.



    Today she was on the beach at Troon on the most perfect winter day you could ever get.



    Tomorrow’s adventure is still to be created

  16. Phil further arguing the case for making SFA accountable after reporting James Dornan had cleverly used R2ngers own complaint re transparency/accountability to wider advantage..






    Good to see the SFSA getting a mention as making SFA accountable via oversight, as is being legislated for in England , has been an objective of SFSA following their own Fans Review of Scottish football.



    Is football governance fit for purpose a good target to work towards, or if achieved would it give us sfa to moan about?



    Choices , choices.




    Nice one on the Maple adventures. Had some good hikes with the dog last week. One of which was in light snow but he had his big bhoy jumper on.

  18. You can check out all the possible signing targets you like leading up to January.Means nothing .Getting the player to sign on the dotted,is the hard part.As I have said before,if they are any good,their agents phones will be red hot.Why would they jump at an offer,not even into the first week?.


    Is that too difficult for some to comprehend.
