That’s Yer Dinner Oot.


Last night, Alex Thomson published a transcript of a letter to the Boards of Directors of the Scottish Football League member clubs from David A. Longmuir, Chief Executive of the SFL.  Here is a link to the blog post.

The first part invites the member clubs to make themselves accessories to a fraud. They will be asked to give their consent to a proposal “that the Scottish Football League Members agree to admit Sevco Scotland Limited as an Associate Member and agrees to permit Rangers F.C. to play in the League during Season 2012/13.”
There’s a somewhat fraudulent aspect to this since the club called Rangers FC is insolvent and in the process of being liquidated.  The application for Associate Membership is being submitted by Sevco Scotland Limited.
In Section 1 of the Scottish Football League’s Constitution And Rules, we find that the Scottish Football League is defined as an “Association of football clubs” and that “Associate Member means a football club however constituted which is admitted to the League pursuant to the provisions of Section 2 of these Rules.”

Associate Members of the Scottish Football League are supposed to be football clubs.
But Sevco Scotland Limited is not a football club.
It never has been.
Look, here is its record:  P0 W0 D0 L0 F0 A0
See?
Sevco Scotland Limited doesn’t play football.  It’s not a football club.
So it cannot be admitted to an Association of football clubs such as the SFL.

In 1985, Sean Connery, Christopher Lambert and I made the movie “Highlander.” I noticed that in the released version of the film, Mr Connery and Mr Lambert had all the best lines and were very much the focus of the audience’s attention. This goes some way to explain why my own performance as the nose-picking peasant in the background of the 15th century McLeod village has been largely overlooked by the critics, even to this day.
Nonetheless, I have more right to be nominated for an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor than Sevco Scotland Ltd has to join a league of football clubs.

In December 1979, I was in the audience when Paul McCartney and Wings recorded a jaunty little ditty called “Coming Up” in the legendary Glasgow Apollo theatre. A few months later, I was working in the United States of the USA when the version of “Coming Up” which was recorded in Glasgow topped the US charts.  On discovering that I had notched up my first American Number One hit single, I was able, without a word of a lie, to impress my American colleagues with the revelation that I was on “Coming Up”. It is admittedly difficult to distinguish my applause from the thousands of other people’s but I care not a jot.
I’m closer to being a Beatle than Sevco Scotland Limited is to being a football club.

So this should be a very short meeting.
As soon as the first proposal is rejected, the rest becomes a dead letter.
Except for this bit:

“A buffet lunch will be served at the conclusion of the meeting.
Kind regards,
David A. Longmuir
Chief Executive, SFL.”

If the SFL club representatives treat themselves to an early lunch by handing the pseudo-Huns their dinner, they will do more than simply preserve the integrity of their own league. They will send a clear message to the frauds, the cheats, the bullies, the criminals, the hypocrites, the cowards and the cynics that they’ve had their day. They will demonstrate their recognition that Scottish football fans have opened their eyes to the corruption which has been covered up for so long. What has been seen can not now be unseen.
With one voice we have condemned those whose craven complicity has allowed that corruption to eat into the essence of our game. The root cause and source of that corruption is on a life-support system which the SFL representatives are perfectly entitled to switch off on Friday.  For the sake of the fans, for honesty, for football and for justice, there is only one correct choice to make.
Pull the plug.

Bon appetit!

  1. Henry, you may not have got an oscar but you get our thanks for thought provoking pieces. Keep up the good work

  2. Superb article Henry! The spread of this cancer in our game by those in authority is more malignant than benign. No one really knows just how far and wide this filthy corruption goes or where it really stems from but there is one thing that is now a certainty . . .the ‘Jeannie’ is out the bottle and there’s no putting it back. Everyone in Europe has witnessed one of the biggest corruption cover-ups ever to pollute the Scottish game unfold and develop before their very eyes. Their underhand gerrymandering and sheer arrogance has been breathtaking to everyone concerned. Doncaster, Regan and Longmuir have been and still are complicit in their bias desire to ride roughshod over every rule in the book to bend over backwards to accommodate an organisation that is not even a football club never mind the fact that it doesn’t meet ANY of the criteria for entry into ANY SCOTTISH FOOTBALL let alone one of the top positions. You can only shake your head in wonderment at just how far these three football fascists will go to get their way! Will they threaten to put the start of the season back to January next year if their demands are not met? Will they threaten to go on strike if Sevco 5088 are not allowed into Division One. Will they impose sanctions on any club that does not allow Sevco 5088 to choose their own referee on match days? Where does their corruption end? This must be getting near to the time where Scottish football clubs hold up their hands and declare: enough is enough! Time for a vote of no confidence against there three stooges. Time for men like Turnbull Hutton to come to the fore and sort this out once and for all.

  3. Hear no crime,see no crime,speak no crime must go this week Henry or UEFA are goin to tell us all to get stuffed !! This is corruption at its highest .Hope B. Quinn is havin a word now
