The Whistle Blower

The Whistle Blower

My exclusive news that Kenny Miller was not ‘rested’ but subject to an enforced absence due to his ridicule of ‘Banger’ Caixinha’s training methods has not gone down well at Auchenhowie. Who would have thought that they hang on my every word? Slim Shady Traynor would like us all to believe that the team are […]

A Coordinated & Totalitarian Agression

A Coordinated & Totalitarian Agression

Avid readers of our site will know that I am occasionally indulgent of my taste in music. The Villagers, Alexa Melo, Porno For Pyros, Jane’s Addiction, Lianne La Havas and yesterday Paddy McAloon who penned, to my mind, one of the greatest albums of the twentieth century, Steve McQueen. If one looks at some of the […]

The Incessant Sectarian Soundtrack

The Incessant Sectarian Soundtrack

“The incessant sectarian soundtrack, from the away stand, leaves a lot to be desired.” The quote in italics is from an article in The Daily Record (real tax-evaders write for The Record) apropos the Partick Thistle v Rangers Lite SPFL fixture on Friday. The incessant sectarian soundtrack could also be heard at last night’s League Cup […]

Two Years Of Discovery

Two Years Of Discovery

Today is the two years anniversary of The Sitonfence Speakeasy. A site where the only agendas are the truth and righting wrongs. Injustice, in all its many guises, is anathema to me. In jj:passim Be Still My Beating Heart I highlighted organ harvesting in China. Falun Gong is a Chinese spiritual practice that combines meditation […]

Accelerated Payments

Accelerated Payments

As we have seen with the odious tax cheat and Daily Record correspondent, Barry Ferguson, HMRC armed with court cases in their favour are aggressively pursuing the tax evaders. However Ferguson, who knew that he had evaded tax on ‘cash-stuffed envelopes’ to the tune of £2.633,000, effectively put himself into administration by declaring himself bankrupt. […]

The SFA – The De Facto clearing house for malfeasance at Ibrox.

The SFA – The De Facto clearing house for malfeasance at Ibrox.

Stewart Regan’s compromised SFA is implacably opposed to a review. Regan knows that the SFA was the de facto clearing house for all manner of malfeasance at Ibrox. No-one has any doubt that a revolving door existed between The Blue Room and the Sixth Floor of Hampden/ Park Gardens. This has resulted in the SFA bending […]

The Propaganda Model

The Propaganda Model

Avid readers who have followed my two years of discovery will recall an article predicated on the narratives of Naom Chomsky who is unequivocally one of the greatest philosophers of our time (jj passim: Manufacturing Consent.) His seminal books with co-author Edward S. Herman have been a tour de force in critical thought leadership. The […]

Peter Lawwell – The Man With The Golden Gun

Peter Lawwell – The Man With The Golden Gun

I have been one of Mr. Lawwell’s fiercest critics. Mr. Lawwell is the Chief Executive of the one pre-eminent football club in Scottish football. The other, Rangers, went bust under a cloud of debt and tax evasion. For many this was karmic justice. For others a £250,000 fine, for subverting Scottish football with the modern-day […]

Learnings Difficulty At SFA

Learnings Difficulty At SFA

One of the most surprising takeaways from the Celtic v PSG game was an overriding sense of schadenfreude in the SMSM. There were those who compared the gap between PSG and Celtic as analagous to the gap between Celtic and their Scottish rivals. There was a palpable sense of ‘how do Celtic like it when the […]

The Pantheon Of The Corrupt

The Pantheon Of The Corrupt

Shakespeare’s tragedy, Romeo and Juliet, features a feud between the Montague and Capulet families; a feud that ultimately led to the star-crossed lovers’ demise. It spawned the phrase ‘A Plague on Both of Your Houses‘ which continues to resonate to this day. There is no feud between the houses of Ibrox and Hampden. The SFA and […]

Regan’s Checkmate

Regan’s Checkmate

The following is an extract from an Auldheid article:   Nota Bene: During the initial meeting, prior to the AGM in November 2016 at which agreement with the PLC was reached to adjourn the resolution, we were advised by Celtic PLC CEO Mr Peter Lawwell that if we provided a “silver bullet” he would fire […]

The Duel

The following comment is from long term contributor to this site, Auldheid: ” Celtic are the other club who wrote independently to the SFA (about 8 weeks ago). That followed the SFA announcement on 5th July when the SC ruled on ebts. The advice given to Celtic last December when Res12 was passed over to them was to […]

Walking On Hot Coals

The compromised corrupt cabal that is the SFA were warned in advance of Ewing Grahame’s article in The Times. Darryl Broadfoot, who now works for a two-bit third party PR operation – Frame – is the account manager to the SFA. As opposed to drawing a salary he now issues fee notes.       […]

Squeaky Bum Time For Regan

Squeaky Bum Time For Regan

Ewing Grahame, The Times, September 7, 2017 “Celtic have not given up hope of the Scottish Football Association agreeing to a judicial inquiry which would examine fully the roles played by the game’s ruling bodies before, during and after the financial implosion of Rangers in 2012. It is understood that, while the SFA have yet […]

Get King

Get King

There are those who categorise my pursuit of Dave King as an exercise in casual invective. Allow me to disabuse one of that notion. There is nothing casual in my approach. My attacks are surgical in nature. They are designed to inflict as much reputational damage as possible. James Traynor – the squatter at Auchenhowie […]

Despite the consensus to deal with the […]

Yours is no disgrace

Yours is no disgrace

Yesterday’s international results seem to have buoyed those who turn up at Hampden to watch an inferior product manufacture improbable failures. In making this sweeping statement it would be remiss of me to add one caveat: the Celtic core of the team are far from inferior. However Celtic have a team that combines the Scotland […]

Encounters of The Third Kind

The following is an excerpt from a comment that was posted on our board this morning: ” Regards the financial situation, I believe Dave King when he says loans are needed again. The loans from the Park family in particular have kept the lights on at Ibrox these last few seasons since King and former […]
