New Year Fundraiser Ended

Target: £1000
Raised: £863.31

We first want to say a huge thanks again to those who contributed to keep the blog going.

We didn’t quite get to our target this time, but hopefully we can get to summer – thanks to those of you who once again came to the aid of our wee community.

We are not gonna go on about how valuable and unique SFM is. If you are still on this mailing list, the chances are that you are in no need of convincing. What we would say is that although the injustices of the past ten years have largely been accepted as the norm by the media, they have been in no way accepted by the majority of football fans – largely due to platforms like this having both the voice and the audience to ensure that accurate information is not strangled at birth.

We are, as always grateful for your continued support.

After ten years of existence as a non-partisan website and blog (relatively unique to the soccer blogosphere), SFM is still one of the most influential and informative sources of news and analysis in Scottish Football. We still strive to get an honest account of the affairs of the game and to hold the powers at Hampden to account.

In those years we have cast a spotlight on the errors, inconsistencies and deliberate misinformation peddled by the MSM on matters related to our national game. We have helped to expose succulent lamb journalism – and we will continue to do so.

However, of late things have gotten a little critical fund-wise, so if you value the resource that is SFM, we always appreciate some help to keep us afloat. Our costs have gone down a bit over the last few months, but we are still around £1200 short of where we would like to be.

SFM content or participation is not hidden behind any paywall, and there are no ‘Subscriber-Only’ bonuses. The truth has to be available to all of us regardless. That is our our overarching aim.
