  1. I remember a certain Director at Aberdeen previously commenting the the two arse cheeks were like ‘ladies of the night’ lifting their skirts to any league that looked attractive to them.
    It seems that they are both perfectly willing to pimp out their kids as well!
    Shame on all the clubs that allowed this to happen.
    In my opinion it undermines the integrity of the game in this country just as much as the proposed European Super League did down south.
    It sends out a message that only two teams matter in this country (though many would argue that has been the case for years when you look at how the authorities and media pander to them)


  2. "If I am ever asked,” Boris Johnson once wrote of ID cards, “on the streets of London, or in any other venue, public or private, to produce my ID card as evidence that I am who I say I am, when I have done nothing wrong and am simply ambling along and breathing God’s fresh air like any other freeborn Englishman, then I will take that card out of my wallet and physically eat it in the presence of whatever emanation of the state has demanded I produce it.”

    Is this the same Boris Johnson who would rather ‘die in a ditch’ and assured the DUP that there will be no border in the Irish Sea!

  4. I am pretty sure it is designed to facilitate compulsory ID cards being introduced.
    If you don’t have a passport or drivers license the Govt will provide a free ID card so they can’t be accused of discriminating against people who can’t afford either of these.
    After a while it gets rolled out to the rest of the population and no one protests because it also doubles as a Covid passport.


  5. The Conservatives had once been wiped out in Scotland by the Westminster FPTP system.
    The PR of the Holyrood system allowed them to rebuild a representation here to levels where they are now the second party.
    If only Labour would realised that Independence may allow them a similar way start to win back their previous levels of support.
    Waiting on another U.K. Labour government for a chance to implement there policies looks like a non starter.


  6. I think the game here could thrive without them.

    You would have a number of teams starting the season believing they could win the league rather thinking finishing 3rd was successful.

    Fans will come out to see successful teams actually playing for something. I have seen a bigger crowd at East End for the Pars playing Raith when both were going for promotion than the Pars got against the OF the following season.

    The only thing that could spoil it would be if they left colt teams.


  7. Sun reporting now the English Big six want Rangers and Celtic to create a British Super League

    The only difference would be that fans of other clubs up here would be out protesting to make sure they left and had nothing more to do with the game up here, no colt teams left behind.

  8. A sidenote in all this, Boris Johnson apparently clearing his diary to attempt to stop this is utterly ridiculous given he didn't show up to COBRA meetings about COVID in February last year 

    He’s looking to shore up his vote in the ‘red wall’ seats in the North of England.
    Expect a few embarrassing photo opportunities with him in the press soon.

  9. I am finding it rather tiresome with all the pundits and some politicians talking about greed having suddenly taking over the beautiful game.
    As someone who had been going to football since the late 70s and can remember a time in the 80s when football fans (probably more so when I lived in England) were treated with contempt by the media and society in general (think asylum seekers or Islamic fundamentalists these days)
    Football sold out to TV in the 90s and those chickens are finally coming home to roost.
    Those same people complaining about the ESL have been strangely silent previously as the majority of the teams in the ‘best league in the world’ became play things of the rich from all over the world. It was only a matter of time till something like this happened.
    In a way it is sad that the likes of my team Aberdeen will never likely play and beat teams like Bayern or Real again, but that has probably been true for a good many years now anyway.
