Where Is The Boss?

17 Jul

It has been a week or so now since Neil Doncaster was put in post. The new SPFL body has much to do.

First has to be stability to let the world know what is happening and more importantly what is planned. From the supposed big plans and high ideals from the single league body big noises to silence. It is after all not as if Neil Doncaster was new blood needing time to assess the landscape, he should at least know the landscape. If getting the big job meant that Neil would quickly establish what’s needed then he has re-established a kind of chaotic status quo.

League Football in Scotland is business wise a mess. With absolutely no assets and debt. (http://companycheck.co.uk/company/SC175364#history-tab) New company new league same old problems. Add to this the promises given to the lower 30 clubs and you get issues lots of issues.The top division has no sponsor. Are the top 12 going to steal money from Irn Bru’s successful sponsorship of the lower three divisions. Barring the soft drinks manufacturer investing more money then this option is nothing more than theft. These events mean that the merger is a nothing more than a coup d’tat and Doncaster’s corrination nothing less than a Putsh. Facing these concerns from what now must amounts to at least 70% of his constituents Neil disappears. There has been no leaks or reports if big news coming from Hampden so unless suspiciously the information seals have been reinstated at Hampden HQ the only conclusion is that Neil is still sitting in his office laughing that he has got away with it again still.

Hearts and Dunfermline are on sale with prospective new owners investing big money but with no idea what the income stream of these clubs will look like. Clarity the rescued Chilean Miners had more clarity in the days after the mine collapsed.

Regular readers will know I am no fan of Doncaster in my opinion he is some kind of puppet, a donkey but surely even buoyed by the confidence of his appointment he knows he has to at least talk the talk attempt to walk the walk instead he is hiding.

    I am still unsure why Doncaster got the job(ok we probably all know) he presided over the debacle and abject failure that was the spl turkey. Why was the position of CEO in a ‘new’ governing body seemingly only open to two applicants with one of the applicants already in charge of the money losing top tier of Scottish Football ? Surely like most other job vacancy the position of CEO for the newly formed SPFL should have been thrown open to the private sector where I am sure there would have been an abundance of highly suitable AND more successful applicants than the loser that was ‘selected’.
    Until there is open transparency in both the SFA and the SPFL I fear the worst for Scottish Football. Who elected the board of the spfl ? What has the board members all got in common (not hard to figure out).
    There should have been a major clear out of both the SFA and the SPL governing bodies and I cant help but think we missed a golden opportunity to make a clean break and a bright new dawn is even further away.

      Think that the events of this last month have only added to the theory that bad deeds are afoot.

      Thanks for taking time to read and comment

        Yep bad deeds afoot Ronny. Where is the investigation into Hearts and Dunfermline and when are they going to be fined, Sporting Integrity only applies when dealing with one club it seems.
        I enjoy your page would like to see it on a more regular basis mate .
