OK. and my point is taht the BBC never misses an opportunity to critise Brexit. Being an independent sovereign country means we are in control of our own borders, unlike the EU idea of a loose confederation of interdependent  states. However, I think bona fide people should be able to come if there an employer needs them to do a job.

I agree, they should be able to, the problem is right now, they're not. There are way too many hoops to jump. Mostly because Brexit has left this chasm yet to be filled with proper process and directives as yet and we're pretty much in this limbo area where Scottish teams are fighting in a reduced talent pool due to red tape and more interest from other areas too.

If we’re looking at Norwegians, what’s the problem. Norway isn’t an EU country, I could be wrong though!!

Put up quotes where I "never miss an opportunity to praise Brexit" - I'm waiting for you to justify that piece fo fiction:

... you never miss an opportunity to show that you're an arsehole.

I asked a question, not made an assertion. Thus, a posting of an example is neither appropriate or necessary.

On the other hand, your statement necessitates evidence, which is sorely lacking.

ànd why not. you dont live in the uk tx but in a very racist country. those who blame brexit for everything are utter cretins.

I find this kinda amusing, given Bulgaria’s somewhat dubious racial credentials, but am not really sure how it even applies. I’m neither defending the U.S., nor stating a position on BREXIT (remain, if you wish to know), but rather noting the impact on the ease of signing players for Scottish clubs. The impact is clear and evident, and due to BREXIT, that is undeniable…but that doesn’t establish a position on it.

Sorry, can we just have some clarity. Is It Joe Biden, Brexit or the BBC to blame for us not signing  anyone? 

 

I’m blaming Val, no, John Sim, oh hell, Nicola?

None of them - it's Dario's fault 😉

One thing I’m sure he’s not guilty of.

Actually, you are, but not for the reason you think. Norway is associated with the EU due to its association with the EEA, and that ties back to Norwegian participation in the EFTA, a competitor to the EEC.

They participate in a common jobs market with the EU, so the same rules apply. Regardless, once outwith the EU, all signings follow the same documentation rules.

They require a work permit to come and play here which isn't easy to obtain, as do EU nationals now who up until recently did not.

They are all suffering under much the same regulations, with just a little local flavor added. The biggest difference is many English teams are signing players who easily reach 15 points due to International action or playing history, whilst Scottish, Welsh and NI teams don’t have the dosh for that.

Nail on head, the further down the leagues and footballing nations you go the more difficult it will be for clubs to get work permission for their players.

QUOTE "And you never miss an opportunity to praise BREXIT, eh?"

Where are the opportunities I didnt miss? Put them up.

You don't half slaver some pish. And if you don't like our politics stick to Biden and Trudeau and f**k off.

So, let’s look at my quote. Read for comprehension, please…note the question mark, note the absence of the word “have” after you and the use of miss versus “missed”, which shows present versus past tense in the phrase…that’s that.

The suggestion that noting that you took a position on BREXIT, and commenting on your position, is somehow not acceptable because I’m not resident in Scotland is, well, unique. And a poster with your history of rabidly foaming pish opinions (examples abound, and no one wants to see them again) is well qualified to adjudge slavering pish, so I’m disappointed you made an error here.

Have you opined on the Dunfermline or Falkirk threads recently?

Which isn’t a terrible thing for our younger players, in the longer term. It may be a problem for the quality of the leagues for some time, though.

Your typical load of wooly waffle. I SAID f**k ALL ABOUT BREXIT - GET IT?

So, ONCE MORE, WHY HAVE YOU ASSOCIATED ME WITH BREXIT???  - and if I were pro Brexit  I have to justify it to you?
