Will Sevco now be cited for the klan’s karaoke in Warsaw?

It was entirely appropriate that Sevco issue a statement today after the announcement by UEFA of sanctions on the club for the racism of their fans.

Racism at Ibrox 2019

I just received this prompt reply from the Media & Public Relations people at UEFA: Dear Phil, The UEFA Control, Ethics and Disciplinary Body (CEDB) has announced the following decisions: Match: UEFA Europa League first qualifying round second-leg match between Rangers FC and St Joseph’s FC (6:0), 18 July in Scotland Charges against Rangers...

The Green Brigade and the end of the world

These are strange times. The British government seems to be comfortable with their contingency plans deal with medicine shortages and bread riots.

Tom Boyd and the SFA

In the summer of 2012, the world-class administrators on the 6th floor at Hampden were in a state of panic.

What will be the dénouement at Celtic this season?

These are strange days at Celtic. Of course, it is normal for there to be a dip in form through a season.

Mr King seizes the opportunity provided to him by Celtic

I think it is fair to say that Celtic’s shambolic implosion on Tuesday has been very helpful to Mr David Cunningham King.

Why Sevco’s hinge factor might be at Parkhead

Napoleon liked his generals to be lucky rather than merely skilled at commanding troops in combat.

Trouble in Paradise

Last night the SPFL champions were 11 minutes away from edging past a club that operates on a fraction of Celtic’s budget.

Good news about a good guy

I was delighted to learn this morning that Darren O’Dea is heading back to Celtic.

Resource wars at Croker and Ibrox

At an undisclosed location on Saturday, I believed at halftime that Mayo would finally do it.

A conveniently green Squirrel

N the aftermath of the scenes at Rugby Park it did seem to me like a very timely story if you were in the deflection business.

BBC Scotland and the Ibrox klan

When I read the most recent statement from Club 1872 I immediately dismissed it as a squirrel.

KT and Morelos

Kieran Tierney is a professional footballer. Both words in that designation have equal importance to working out what he actually does for a living.

Why Sevco might finally be a dead duck

I think it is fair to say that it will take more than the usual crayon creation from Club 1872 to extricate Sevco from a situation of their own making.

Statement O’ Clock is not on the money about the battle with Big Mike

Apparently there is nothing to worry about. This expensive and long-running legal battle with Ashley is no biggie.

Soothing statements and hard facts

I just spoke to my Shirebrook guy. Let’s just say he was rather dismissive of the most recent statement from the Sevco High Command.

Asking for a Fenian

Yesterday my thoughts turned to someone who was taken too early from us on Planet Fitba.

The Sevco High Command surveys the ruins

In the aftermath of the court ruling yesterday, the Sevco High Command went into a dignfied conclave.

Boris, Mr Bean and Sevco

Unless there is the mother of all electoral upsets within the Conservative and Unionist Party then we already know who will become Prime Minister of the United Kingdom.

General Ashley wins again in the High Court

Yesterday morning I touched base with my Shirebrook source to gauge what he expected later in the day from the High Court in London.

President Trump and the Ibrox klan

It is the classic trope and often heard anywhere that the xenophobic virus is out of the bottle.

Boris and Dave

As I recently reported there is at least one sane voice in the Blue Room.

Stenography and geography

So, if tonight Celtic progress instead of Progrès then the champions of Scotland will be heading to Estonia and not Macedonia...

Chevrons and signing on fees

It could be said that Mr Let’s Go has received something of a large Filip with the arrival of his new defender.

A brief communiqué from a busy writer

As I told ye all, this week was set aside of the Word Mines and I’ve made some progress, but more to do.

One city and two different realities

As I have stated here several times recently the financial reality at Sevco means that players will have to leave the building.

Transfer budgets and home truths at Sevco

Just what is a “marquee signing” in football? Does that term change from club to club? Perhaps so.
