Morelos 3 Match Ban


Recommended Posts

Utterly bizarre and more than a bit depressing. What's the point of all this?

 

Faced with a behemoth league next door (Liverpool have just posted profits of £125m, and that's for a year in which they spent £66m on their keeper, Alisson), Scotland's football brains don't try to develop innovative features which might allow it a little bit more of the pie - such as the not exactly revolutionary concept of seizing on big tickets for all they're worth -  it goes for the business model which is presently seeing newspapers dying and the High St fighting for survival: stick to what worked years ago and hope the modern world goes away. Brexit on a football pitch.

 

Well, online shopping isn't going away, and digital media isn't going away, and the EPL isn't going away. A tired old methodology of negatively focusing on the Old Firm, and only one half of even that, is likely to be as successful as someone setting up a pigeon post to compete with email.

 

How many players have we seen down south who have been touted well above their actual abilities? Hunners. Gascoigne. Rooney. Robinho. Elano. Veron. Shevchenko. That lad at Man U with the Serbian name and played for Belgium. Does it matter that they turned out to be pretty good but not all that? No, because it was all about the sell in the first place. The only sell we do is self harm.

 

This lack of foresight, of ambition, of progressive thinking, is nothing new, and it's no more feeble and pathetic than it's ever been, But to see it happen yet again, when Gerrard - an undreamed of feast for the surely starving world of Scottish football - is around the place, boy it gets you down. He doesn't get a free pass anymore than anyone else does, and nor do his players, but to see so many intent on not just killing the golden goose but burning down the entire farm while they're at it is grim.

 

I wonder how many people under 30 are even interested in Scottish football anymore. Why would they be?

Could VAR change that?

When working properly then it should really do away with the need for a compliance officer. Every situation has then been looked at by at least 3 referee's

VAR will undoubtedly be used to further consolidate the entrenched bias against Ranger. Like every other "safeguard" in Scottish football, it will only ever be as good or bad as the people who operate it ... and we know for sure what their allegiances will be.

If you have people like Steve Conroy on the panel then you could be right. The Sellick FA will make sure they have their pawns on board.

I wonder what the media reaction will be if Defoe now goes on a goal spree while Morelos is banned? Could they yet end up shooting themselves in the foot?

Or will there be a campaign against Defoe by the media mafia .
