  1. Wages of Destruction by Tooze. On the economy of the IIIrd Reich. Some of the views/information there contravenes "common wisdom". Some cringeworthy typos or whitewashing, but on the whole an interesting read. Borys
  2. 'Mon the flying donkeys! Borys
  3. Some half measures ARE available: - gate sharing - flat distribution of TV/naming rights/ etc money. Ina SPL context - with its c. 50 million GBP turnover Celtic would still be light years ahead of the rest, while the "best of the rest" like Hearts, Aberdeen or Dundee would see their c.8-10 million unaffected (or make minmal gains). It would be the 4-5 million crowd which would gain the most. Hence it would be 2nd to 12th mob drawing closer. Which could be a Good Thing in itself. Borys
  4. These two pairings gave me a chuckle. Red dot due to fat fingers - will make good elsewhere. Borys
  5. Ain't Annan near the border, and Berwick smack on top of it? Or does Borders mean something else? Borys
  6. But do nos. 1, 2 and 4 have any bearing on Sevco? No. 3 doubtlessly would, and probably no. 5 also affect the newco, but the other three surely only are relevant for Rangers? Borys
  7. There are questions about what Sevco running costs could be. Here are some figures from a few years ago: http://www.football-finances.org.uk/spl/ A pity the site looks dead ... Borys
  8. Any help? http://www.footballgroundguide.com/scotland/index.htm Borys
  9. And the puffs would arrange themselves into satisfação and pleasing Borys
  10. Is there a chimney at Hampden for white and black smoke signals? - "Habemus newcom in tertius divisiae?" Borys
  11. SPL expanding to 16 teams over the next two seasons. Plus vague promises of play-offs, of more money for the diddies, etc. A piece of quickly thrown together, inconsistent BS. Borys
  12. Maybe the board will put Sevco in 1stDiv, which will quickly be followed by an EGM which puts the board on a train to London and shunts Sevco into 3rdDiv. Now that would be popcorn time Borys
  13. LTL is right - the whole affair is such a cesspit that gentlemany conduct can go out the window. Why should one be nice to cads? BTW - that latest blog by Thomson makes me think that Regan and Doncaster are doing wonders for the "Kick da Sassanech oot!" movement Borys
  14. Yup. The guy is fucking full of himself. Typical journalist - the sun rises only because he wrote about it. Meh ... Borys
  15. Cheapest carbonated lemonade from local Carrefour. Borys
