    Brexit Negotiations

    Peter Oborne (ex Telegraph political chief) exposed what he's saying is a group of senior political journalists (inc Kuenssberg and Peston) who have become willing participants in No10s propaganda machine. Shovelling on whatever No10 "feral smear merchants" supply, without interrogation of the information. Who knew?

    Allocation reduced for Semi?

    Yes, because it was a game everyone thought we would win and neither of the ugly sisters were involved.

    Sunday attendances are always a good bit lower at tynie than Saturdays and I’m talking about bums on seats. Last Sunday was a good example. Lots of people have other commitments on sundays.

    Levein’s time is up...

    I just can’t see him walking somehow. If he goes it’ll be because his contract isn’t renewed or he is sacked. All in my opinion of course.

    Levein’s time is up...

    No he won’t FFS why are people struggling to see what’s staring them in the face?

    Hoping to buy in a group so waiting until mates can afford tickets after they're paid on Friday. If the allocation had been likely to sell out I'd have bought my tickets already.

    No idea re Damour. medicine is never an exact science especially joint injuries. Are you sure there isn’t a break/get out clause in the four year deal? I have no idea but suspect there will be something. Insurance would be involved as well if it’s a career ended.

    dutch & belgian leagues to merge

    It would be the apocalypse for us if the OF left. We wouldn’t get a TV deal with Sky or BT if the OF left. Not a chance. Not for millions per year. Maybe a public broadcaster might chuck us a few 100k a year to share between us if we were lucky. There’d be no big company sponsors. Why would Ladbrokes or Diageo for example pay for sponsorships when nobody’s watching? Revenue for us would go down at least 70% from what it is now. We wouldn’t be able to operate at the level we do now with different youth levels, a woman’s team and all the staff we have paying £10 quid an hour. A kid at 16 gets the chance to sign pro terms for Hearts for 100 quid a week, a top team wage of 800-1k a week in a Post non-OF SPFL or, alternatively go and work as a tradie for £25 bucks an hour or get a degree as a Lawyer and earn £400 an hour. No-ones going to be picking football. All the good kids would be off to English clubs straight away, like they do if they come from Wales and N.Ireland and we’d have nothing to produce or sell to keep an Academy open. It wouldn’t even be worth having it. The bigger clubs left with the bigger operating costs would suffer the most, us in particular. For the rest of the clubs that make up the league, they would become Part Time. Hamilton, St Mirren etc.. pay about £600-£1k a week for first team players now, if they lose 60-80% of their revenue, they’d be paying £200 quid a week, who‘d want to work for that a week? It’s not even worth the hassle. All the Pro’s would be offski to England or abroad to make a living. So even if we could offer a full time profession, other SPFL clubs could not and we need them. Fans wouldn’t pay to watch Sunday league standard crap when the two biggest Scottish Clubs with all the best Scottish players were playing EPL football. Future generations would support Rangers or Celtic. You think 12,000 people a week would pay £25 quid a game or £400 quid a season to watch a bunch of part timers booting shite out of each other? Come on man. I don’t like the OF but the fact is that without them and the interest and revenue they generate, Scottish Football is ****ed financially. That is the unfortunate reality.

    No. She can fire him at any time. He can resign at any time. Either could be independent decisions. However she is certainly giving him until Xmas, if not longer, based on recent comments. By that time most of the injured list will be back or nearly back. However if we lose to Celtic Hibs and Aberdeen over the festive period I suspect he will walk.

    Brexit Negotiations

    The reports of Cummings banging the table today demanding a 'GE now' when Corbyn and his oppo were proposing a more realistic timetable for the passage of the Brexit bill is absolutely priceless. They've no idea what to do next and the Cummings/Johnson losing streak has put the fear into them. Labour aren't guaranteed to agree to calling a GE either. Its probably not all panning out how he imagined it in his dreams 🤔

    Levein’s time is up...

    That was a while ago, Sept int games, when his previous appearance had only been three weeks before. And it’s not a niggly hamstring that’s the problem it’s a recurring knee issue. Has also had a minor hamstring strain but nothing serious. Knee is the concern and getting another opinion I believe but could be back soon or might not.

    Extinction Rebellion

    Now who's stuck in the 80s Frank...a leathering for causing someone to make alternative travel plans and be late to work for one day? Really? Just to be clear, I don't support XR and think a lot of their actions are stupid but I do support their cause. Even if I disagree with their actions, I can't support violence against them for inconveniencing people's ability to earn money. Next time I'm stuck in roadworks on my commute should I jump out and leather the workers? Oh I forgot that's okay for them because their doing it to earn money.

    Surely the decision is for one of them - Ann Budge - not “both” of them. Very odd situation.

    Champions League 2019/20

    If Ajax are sitting on the pot of cash that they are rumoured to be on, over £200 million, then perhaps they should consider spending some of it on players who have a spine, can tackle and don't spend most of the game trying fancy flicks that achieve nothing. Chelsea played okay but half their team must be visiting the hospital as they spent most of last half hour rolling around on the floor claiming injuries when anyone brushed into them. Their captain was a particularly good example of running about trying to get the ref to book players from Ajax. When exactly did players become the cheating pussies that we saw in that game. Guess Chelsea deserved the win because they at least tried to score instead of faffing about with square passes. Very disappointed with Ajax.
