Purely out of interest, is Eddie Connachan related to Dennis?

Re: League Fixtures

The English League had a more systematic approach to compiling their fixtures, see Simon Ingles' superb history for details. And it doesn't surprise me in any way of the SPFL's bungling. What idiots. I remember seeing a picture in a book from the early 1970s showing how the Football League worked o...

Re: League Fixtures

I had noticed that, and all four away the previous week. It begs the question, has either event happened before?

This was done with the Lanarkshire Cup in the late 70s/early 80s.

Re: "The [Insert Dignitary Here] Kicked-off"

I think this was as you say “ a ceremonial thing ”. I think Baseball has a similar thing today especially to open the season. Indeed. Still goes on in baseball today, and not necessarily only to open the season. Celebrities are wheeled out for the most tenuous of reason, including cross-promotion o...

League Cup Semi Final Attendances

Have these been published? Particularly curious about the Celtic v Ross County one where there was talk of a boycott.

Re: Henry & Moses McNeil

Another example of a 'misleading' birth certificate was Bernard Breslin of Hibs. His father was illiterate and signed the certificate with an X, so the name was written down phonetically by the registrar as Bracelan. As someone who has spent many hours going through the Records Office in Edinburgh,...

Re: Lowest away attendance

Slightly off-topic, but a number of years ago, a preseason friendly saw Newcastle United making the trip north to Berwick. BR laid on a special, which was greeted at Berwick by a significant turnout from Northumbria Police including dogs and horses. The ONE passenger who alighted was somewhat honour...

Re: mystery photo

Ad in the background is for "Firestone Pneus" tyres, which appears to be of Portuguese origin.

Re: Island Clubs in the Scottish Cup

At the risk of stating the obvious, Canvey Island done well in the FA Cup in recent times. And following last night's 1-1 draw at Mansfield, Concord Rangers too. Well done the Beach Boys. Wouldn't it be nice if they could win the replay? God Only Knows if they will... Canvey Island is, of course, t...

Re: Scotland v England

Despite the 60,000 capacity at Celtic Park I see the attendance is confirmed as 49,526? This makes it the first sub-50,000 crowd for a Scotland v England game since the 'extra' game in 1972-73 to mark the SFA Centenary, 0-5 in bad weather on a February midweek. Just trying to jog the memory - was t...
