A backward shower with few signs of advancement showing- Jim Spence throws light on Scottish media issue

Jim Spence has joined the awkward discussion following last night’s awards session for the Scottish Football Writers Association. 

It seems that the ‘entertainment’ on offer from one of the guests didn’t go down too well with Eilidh Barbour tweeting about the matter. 

Within an hour the tweet had attracted over 100 comments, approaching lunchtime on Monday over 700 replies had been made with little or no comment on last night’s award winners. 

Ange Postecoglou picked up a Manager of the Year award with Craig Gordon the players award but other issues dominated Twitter discussion. 

It seems like an old-school comedian with a seventies style Joke Book didn’t go down well with many guests, this morning the SFWA stated: 

The Scottish Football Writers’ Association apologises to anyone offended or upset by material from one of our after-dinner speakers at last night’s annual awards dinner. 

We have agreed unanimously that this will act as a catalyst to review and improve the format of our future events to make it an enjoyable and inspirational event for all. 

Almost a decade ago Jim Spence felt similarly uncomfortable with policies at BBC Scotland where the views of Kenny Macintyre, Tom English, Steven Thompson, Mark Hateley, Kenny Miller and Neil McCann shape the ‘discussions’.

    She works with a brainless bigot this does not seem to bother her.

    You only have to look at the SFA to see how backward it all is. That institution is full of unprofessional and incompetent and ancient old blowhards who have done very little of note in their lives. Fergus made inroads into shaming them for their lies, cheating and bigotry by exposing the distasteful James Farry.

    Had Fergus still been here, I am sure that he would have overhauled the whole structure by this time. Fergus was a man of principle who would have outed all the cancers that inflict Scottish Football and society.

    Scotland is indeed a backward country due to the behaviour of many of the establishment and many of those who run and support the Establishment club.
