Sevco Fans Want Scottish Football To Fail, But They’ve Forgotten They Play Here Too.

Another day, and another lot of Sevco celebrations, this time because Thistle have joined Hearts in their legal bid and The Daily Record is talking about how much money may be payable in compensation to the clubs if they, by some miracle, win their cases.

But as I said the other day, all this celebrating fails to take some things into consideration which really ought to be obvious, even to the stupidest amongst their supporters. The first of these is that any delay to the campaign will impact on them directly, in a way which other clubs are not exposed to.

Yet over on their forums, this does not appear to have sunk in.

Basically, many of them want Scottish football to fail.

There’s just one itsy-bitsy problem with that, as far as they are concerned; they still actually play football here too. Any negative for the game is a negative for them. Any settlement Hearts and Thistle and others actually secure comes out of the shared revenue pool which they also get paid from.

They are wishing hardship on themselves as well as everyone else.

Right here is one of the ways in which these clowns are similar to the Brexiteers; they are so consumed with wanting the world recast into the shape of their fantasies and dreams that they have completely overlooked the damage it will do to them.

Or maybe I’m being too generous to them; perhaps they do realise and just want to watch it all burn down.

That, to me, has always been the thing that marks them out from us.

If they thought torching their own club was the only way to stop our steady march towards ten in a row they’d do it without hesitation. Look at the way they embraced the global health emergency when it started; the deaths of tens of thousands of people were only a means to an end.

And they still believe that somehow they’ll ultimately “win” this battle; look at the ridiculous headline on The Record’s Hotline, the section of their newspaper dedicated to people who actually pay them money for the privilege of looking stupid; it reads, “Hearts winning court case will leave Celtic with Nine in a Row merchandise they can’t sell.”

How this conclusion was arrived at – it certainly wasn’t through utilising brain-cells – is not explained and the paper has no interest in helping out.

Last season is over. The clubs voted for it, including Sevco itself.

Nobody is going to reverse that; even Hearts don’t object to titles being decided, they only want relegations to be stopped. The whole thing is bizarre.

But bizarre is where these Peepul live. It is how they see the world.

In the 1951/52 season, SFA chairman George Graham tried to stop Celtic from flying the Irish tricolour flag over Celtic Park, leading to a bitter stand off between him and the club. Which Scottish club backed Graham over his stance?
