Uefa’s Nations League, a competition too far

369

There is every chance you do not know if tonight’s Czech Republic – Scotland game is competitive or a friendly (it’s Nations League, so somewhere in-between), but, like me, you will be concerned that during European qualification, several Celtic players will take the field against the remaining Czechs who have not tested positive for Covid.

This disease has an incubation period of up to 14 days.  The Czechs have lost their first team due to infection and we now roll the dice hoping there has been no cross-contamination around Czech football circles in recent days.

Nothing about this is right.  The Nations League should have been one of the many things we have sacrificed due to the pandemic.  It required international travel and sporting bubbles to be mix.  What happened to the Czechs following their win over Slovakia on Friday will have consequences for both nations and for clubs across the continent.  I know the SFA are far from competent at most things, but the issue here lies at Uefa.

    Yip – he too.

     

     

    And at least one Labour politician was not slow to demand that Rangers were the wronged party when they won a battle (not the war) in a Scottish court. How did this turn out Brian?

     

    “Angry Labour MP Brian Donohoe, secretary of the Rangers Supporters Club at Westminster, said the tribunal ruling raised questions over the role of HMRC in damaging Rangers.

     

     

    😊seem to recall Brian(noo retire’t) was backed in Parliament by Gregory ‘staunch”Campbell and another mp, I think it may have been the then livi mp(happy pose in sash etc) or another 6county mp.George Galloway was countering😊

     

     

    He added: “This disastrous case has led to a position where Rangers are languishing in the third division. That will not be forgotten. The fans will not forgive HMRC for that.

     

     

    😊I agree it will not be forgotten..you trigger in me that HMRC actually tweeted they did not loose the case.due to the misinformation forwarded to obfuscate by fans/meeja poodles😊

     

     

    “There has to be an in-depth examination and debate about the role of HMRC.”

     

     

    😊it would seem him we have have backing here for an extensive public enquiry 😊

     

     

    Donohoe said the fact the taxman had not won “a single case” against a football club showed there was “something fundamentally wrong” with HMRC’s approach.

    So, I call on Brian Donohoe to demand an in-depth investigation and debate about the role of the Scottish Police and CPS.

     

     

    😊 agree jim.away of to do some digging.

    This JHB troll has pulled the wool over the eyes of a few posters on here. All the fool them. I will not give the troll anymore oxygen.

  6. I’m expecting Bojo to make a statement to the nation tonight cancelling Man U and Man C games this weekend – it’s only fair

    😊that’s it fella,get them back in the fold soon.

     

    it is a worry with all the covid and quarantine laws.just get them back in sound and ready to pull on the hoops.

     

    that may sound selfish,but there is a story behind the Czech team events as it looks like the club pulled rank as they have champions league coming up.Czech champs I mean.😊

    I am glad they are out from a Celtic point of view.maybe not from a Scotland one tho but as I think everything bout this fixture I just ask why is this happening?

     

    it seems an experiment in risk and sadly we will wait to hear of first test fail.fear it’s bound to happen.

     

    have you renewed at the vale?

    My son has a box at the Vale – costs about £6k plus Vat for 8 people. Lost 5 games last season with no offer of refund or credit. They’ve been pushing him to renew so he’s asked them their policy for closed door games – apparently they don’t seem to have one – he’s still waiting a reply. The first couple of games will certainly be without fans.

    It looks like it is you and I against the Scottish establishment and their supporters – approximately 4,300,000 (taking out the Tim population) : 2.

     

     

    There odds are not fair.

     

     

    I suggest that they get another 5,700,000 on their side to balance this up!

    Oh naw there’s two of them. Mike & Bernie Winters CSC

     

     

    Two different blog names doesn’t always mean two different posters!

  11. LBGT a word please,

     

    I accept you who criticised me, you are entitled to an opinion after all, BUT,

     

    why does society not promote with the same zeal how badly our mental health is run and how quickly, when some poor soul with a massive mental problems kills someone, he is branded a demon etc. If more or the same effort was given to these poor souls and helping them then it has to be.

     

    I’m more concerned for them than I am for the LGBT lot, who can look after themselves.

     

    Thank you and good night
