  1. CD3 about half way between penalty box and half way line (great view of all the pitch) was £560 last year. Add 5%.
  2. Good spirit second half. Should have taken a draw. No criticisms of any player for second half performance. Tav error was only really bad point but apart from that he had a good game and helped drag us back into it. Kamara very composed coming in in that atmosphere and looks a decent player. Worral is hopeless. Constantly giving the ball away and should have done better at first goal. Goldson not the player we thought he was. Morelos - what can you say but he probably has to get out of this league for his sake and ours. Next season he will get another batch of reds if he stays. No question about it whether they will be deserved or not.
  3. I noted that the Celtic commissioned independent consultancy into the crush has been done by Fairhurst Engineering. Seems to be a link to Bath Street Holdings and from there to Pacific Shelf. Who’d have thunk it? https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fairhurst_(company) https://beta.companieshouse.gov.uk/company/SC159839
  4. They look good in Scotland because they are permitted to kick opponents all over the park. Take that out their game and they are bog standard at best.
  5. Aye but that’s not the law in Scotland Pete. I don’t have to be a gangster to assault anyone. A slap in the face or back if the head is sufficient. As you say we will see.
  6. Didn’t miss him. Watch his left elbow on the first contact as he’s kicking out.
  7. He assaults Tav. As he kicks the ball and possibly intends to hurt Tav in that action his left elbow simultaneously connects with Tavs head. Go on Twitter and freeze frame through the sequence. Tav pushes out an arm to defend himself and the thug connects weakly with Tav again. Assault every day of the week in Scots Law. No one is suggesting it’s GBH but that’s not the point.
  8. Good points raised there. Working together is vital given the unprecedented attacks on the club, fans and players.
  9. Alfredo looking on with intent. Double Red.
  10. My hazy rather drunk recollection is the guy was trying to kick through the ball and use that momentum to sneakily kick Tav at the same time and then try and square up to him. I saw it as an attack and it nearly started a rammy in the pub I was in between me and a Hibs fan. So these incidents don’t just affect the immediate environment but they can lead to knock on effects. It’s grossly irresponsible journalism to describe it as anything other than an attack. When the BBC described the Cup Final as exuberance and failed to nail the guy who hit Wallace with a golf Brolly they are complicit in setting an agenda of violent attacks on players being acceptable behaviour, which other fans then mimic. It’s clear that Rangers players are deemed acceptable targets by many fans and the standards applied in the media to incidents involving Neil Lennon, Steve Clarke and Scott Sinclair are different to those standards applied to what is now a lengthening list of Rangers players who have been attacked. Now some on the BBC have condemned it, others are ambiguous and the usual suspects say nothing or apply weak editorial standards. BBC today said they couldn’t talk about it as an attack as it was a police matter. That is bollox. They rightly condemned the Lennon incident by the Hearts thug as an attack whilst the police were investigating it. It always amazes me incidentally that stick insects think they would get the better of a professional athlete in such circumstances. If Tav has leathered him he would have got a red card (true it’s in the rules) and he’d probably be facing a charge. He did well to hold back.
  11. Accusing folk of being boring and hardly worthy of your attention but doing it in such a long winded post doesn’t reflect clarity of purpose but it sure does show a fine sense of irony. We now are lead to believe he knew the petition was useless except to stimulate debate amongst fellow Bears. If you feck something up it’s usually better to hold your hands up, identify the error and either fix it or learn for next time rather than attack your target audience. Its a pity because a petition handled properly was a good idea. James Dornan is one of the last people who should be sitting on a panel of elected MSPs trying to eradicate sectarianism. Apart from anything else he’s thick and not competent to do the job, in fact I’d question his competence to do any serious job.
  12. First 45 minutes we were brilliant and even breathtaking. Seen a lot of negativity but keep putting pieces in the jigsaw and we’re absolutely going in the right direction under SG.
  13. Appeal: I contest this decision of the BBC not to release the information I requested. The information is not held for the purposes of journalism, art or literature as claimed by the BBC but is held to ensure services are provided in a cost effectivemanner as specified in the BBC charter (see below) and to ensure that the public services on offer are accessible to viewers listeners and other users. Unless we know how much money is allocated it is not possible to establish reasonable accessibility for BBC licence holders. If Rangers games for example are not covered but Celtic games are (which is the case due to the BBC boycott of Rangers) it is reasonable to assume that the obligation to service listeners, viewers and users in a cost effective and accessible manner is not being met. The BBC in not disclosing the requested information are therefore confirming that either they do not have the information (therefore fail the cost effectiveness measure) or they simply wish to withhold the information because it reveals an imbalance in expenditure (therefore fails the accessibility measure). I therefore repeat my request for the information withheld by the BBC. Extract from BBC CHARTER. GENERAL OBLIGATIONS 61. Making the UK Public Services widely available (1) The BBC must do all that is reasonably practicable to ensure that viewers, listeners and other users (as the case may be) are able to access the UK Public Services that are intended for them, or elements of their content, in a range of convenient and cost effective ways which are available or might become available in the future. These could include (for example) broadcasting, streaming or making content available on- demand, whether by terrestrial, satellite, cable or broadband networks (fixed or wireless) or via the internet.
  14. BBC Response: Thank you for your request to the BBC of 07/03/19, seeking the following information under the Freedom of Information Act 2000: The information you have requested is excluded from the Act because it is held for the purposes of ‘journalism, art or literature.’ The BBC is therefore not obliged to provide this information to you and will not be doing so on this occasion. Part VI of Schedule 1 to FOIA provides that information held by the BBC and the other public service broadcasters is only covered by the Act if it is held for ‘purposes other than those of journalism, art or literature”. The BBC is not required to supply information held for the purposes of creating the BBC’s output or information that supports and is closely associated with these creative activities. Yours sincerely, INFORMATION RIGHTS, BBC Legal
  15. Dear Sir, Please can you advise me how much of BBC Scotland budget was allocated to cover ‘away matches’ in the group stage Europa League matches involving Celtic and Rangers in football season 2018/19? For example how much money was spent on fees to subcontracted staff, hotel and travel expenses including subsistence, overtime, additional broadcasting costs for technical and operational necessities, hiring of equipment or facilities. I do not need the figure broken down by expense type but an overall total sum of money or budget allocated to those matches will suffice.
