Chinese Coronavirus threatens Dundee Utd game

Arbitration is finished, Hearts and Thistle lose their case which finally cements their relegations with no £10million either :lol:

 

Not strictly true. Arbitration continues while they assess expenses and costs which hopefully they conclude fall firmly at the door of Hearts and Partick, then the SFA follow it up with a substantial fine (well, if they won't consider expulsion).

I'm in two minds. Part of me thinks that, OK, Hearts and Thistle have been unlucky - they haven't been treated badly, nor have they been treated arbitrarily, but there's still an element of luck in all this. Now they've been told they have to take their medicine. I do think it falls to them, regardless, to shoulder the costs that have arisen from all this. But I'd like to think the SFA will call that punishment enough and make any additional punishment a slap on the wrists.

On the other hand, the two clubs have behaved disgracefully, and there needs to be a real consequence for trying to upset the judicial process in the way that they did. A punishment, then, is merited.

 


Now before Gavin goes, I'd like to ask him one more question.

Fair enough. Lets hope they are made to cover the cost

I'd happily settle for that cunt Leslie Deans being impaled on his own trumpet.

He came out with a stoater today in the Hootsmon:

What league would that be then, Leslie?  The Eeeh-bah-gum Evostik Dog & Duck Leagues (North) where the likes of Sam Ramsbottom is actually considered to be 'not bad'?

Best Edinburgh comedian since Happy Howden.

Saw a lot tweeting the club directly, myself included, asking who’s on the Twitter duties to no reply. 
 

That photo got a good few replies to asking what grounds they were able to get in on

You've got to give him credit somehow, for having the brassneck to keep coming back and shoving himself into the limelight shamelessly, without a care in the world about what anyone else thinks.

I can't help but think that if he was a random local yokel who stacked shelves, wore G-Star Raw clobber, had bad acne and smelt of pot noodles whether anyone would entertain him for such things.  He has an Aled Jones thing going on, he gives off an innocent young boy done good vibe but he's a real manipulative person.  Worth a watching.

I miss pot noodles a wee bit. Obviously you get all manner of instant noodles and ramen over here, and the variety in especially the Korean stores is unsurpassed, but you can't beat a cheeky chicken and mushroom. In conclusion, Callum's oily, insinuating manner is perfect for the easily-flattered like the current Morton board.

Claims he wasn't on duty for the club, but he knows what he's doing even just by managing to be there last night.

If he was there on media duty for his own site, where's his coverage? Nothing there post-match. Not even a Tweet about it during or after the match (other than being tagged in that Des McKeown one).

Almost as if he wanted to hide the fact he was there, going as far as tweeting about other games despite being at Cappielow.

Now why would he want to conceal that fact if he was attending in a capacity as an independent journalist to write about the game, rather than doing something which would get him a huge backlash from the public? Just as an example of course, something like doing the job of someone who was made unemployed when the furlough scheme ended, having scabbed that employee while they were furloughed in order to promote his own podcast, while furiously denying he had any intention of finding a permanent position with the club?

Chris McEleny has been giving it tight to Des McKeown who was there on media duties, but didn't specify exactly what those duties actually were.

I think some of what's been said about him has been a bit overblown, but he's made his own bed for the most part and people are entitled to be a bit irked about some guy who, by his own admission, isn't a fan, and who has made himself unpopular being able to access games for reasons unknown (and also for his own blog) when nobody else is. Perhaps if we all just start a wee football blog we'll be allowed to go along?

There was some wee guy there from “Not The Old Firm” covering it as well. Which to be fair, he has, but that’s basically a fan blog.

I used to have press accreditation for UEFA and FIFA and it wasn't as hard to get as you might imagine. The "issue" is that, much like with "scouts", you'll just get people going along to random games but not "working." But of course they are "working" because getting in to a game for free and watching it is research, plus you're meeting people so it's networking. Nice work if you can get it.
