Cant believe you see no offence in that photo , going by all the previous comments regarding the post 

Stop deflecting tell us where he is and why he’s not in the UK 😝

Think we ‘know’ RsM well enough now to know it wasn’t intended that way, but you and sortmeout enjoy your woke superiority love in.

The thing that bothers me is that Bangala has already been to Somerset, as in this picture 🤔

I'm unsure of how visas work but surely with the fact he's already been would speed things up? 🤔

He can come in as a tourist as an EU Citizen for 90 days but can't work. He wouldn't get a visa under the normal process I believe but can apply through the exception or exemption process, can't remember the term, that allows individuals such as him to move to the UK to play football.

I apologize if I caused offence, that obviously wasn't what I was seeking to do.

I was implying that I'd take Bangala at Ayr just now by any means necessary. With the mention of Dinghies, I thought it was funny at the time. Of course, this was in no way in support of what *that* post said and was merely meant in jest. I have removed the post and again I apologize.

Would that be different for say a Celtic or Rangers? Would they, being bigger teams, get over that hurdle quicker?

Yes because the better the player the more likely they are to be accepted. There is a whole points based system that the Home Office uses which counts international minutes and leagues played in. Can also apply for a governing body endorsement from the SFA I believe although I think that requires the player to have played internationally.

I don’t see how Bangala fits any of these criteria tbh so I don’t actually know how they’re going about getting him a work permit.

ETA: Just looked it up and found there is an exceptions panel for folk that don’t meet the original criteria so I’d imagine that takes longer and is the reason for the delay.

Ah, so I guess that's how previous foreign players we've had have had to go through 🤔 Alain Horace came to mind.

Nothing like a bit of casual racism on a Friday night to deflect from our woes on the park.

The Bangala situation is frustrating at it would be interesting to know if Mathie and Bullen would’ve pursued the deal if they knew how long they’d have to wait for him. There’s really no blame to be attached to the club here as they’ve done everything asked of them AFAIK. The issue for the player himself is he’s done zero ball work with the rest of the group so there’s a bit of catching up to be doing and secondly, the situation has put a fair bit of pressure on him given how long we’ve waited to see him. I’ll be content if he can add something to our midfield that we didn’t already have and it’ll be interesting to see where he fits in. Hugely frustrating situation all round but it just ties in with everything else that’s been going a bit wrong recently.

Naw, remember how good it used to be having EU passports and freedom of movement?

No love in whatsoever , in the context of the post the photo was inappropriate, if you want to know why he’s not here don’t think I am the person to ask

Perhaps they might view it as a charitable or emergency request if the league cup results continue. Thankfully scottish independence hasn't happened or the majority of our summer signings would be stuck in Gretna waiting for the border guards to let them through

We can also confirm that we have ended our previous agreement with Clydeshore, who have operated the burger vans in the North Terrace for many years.

Good news indeed, although why the club felt the need to email that (along with other stuff) at 8 in the morning is a bit much.

That’s completely on them

There’s no way of knowing with this kind of stuff though. My point is if they had the chance to do it all again, would they?

Anyone laying blame at the feet of the club for this situation is miles off it.

tbqh the only problem I ever had with the burger van was back in the day when it inevitably ran out of pies at about 14:45, but even that got sorted. Obviously now the club is big and fancy it can't be doing with having a literal van parked on an embankmenk selling cash-and-carry Capri-Sonnes smuggled over on the ferry, but that makes me a little sad.

Who is to blame then? State your agenda.
