Re: SCOTTISH CUP

Hibs goalie Williams was Captain. Ledley handed the Captains arm band to Paddy McCourt when he came on so i assume he was given the band by Brown?

Re: Andrew Watson (Scotland 1881-82)

Is there any merit starting a Charitable Foundation in the same way as the "Arthur Wharton Foundation". www.arthurwharton.com There is even a book by Phil Vasilli however at the time of writing in the late 1990's Andrew Watsons existence was not known.It is still worth a read though http://www.amazo...

Re: McCoist, Rangers & the Treaty of Versailles

Very interesting parallel. I wonder who the Adolf Hitler figure will be fighting against the "Diktat" punishment?

Re: Roddy Forsyth

The quality of so called broadsheet journalists leaves a lot to be desired. I saw Patrick Barclay at the Aye Write book festival and his lack of knowledge of football and Scottish football was shocking.

Re: What have the SFA got to hide?

I doubt very much any politician would survive after the past few days Ogilvie has had. However being the closed shop "gentlemans club" that the SFA is he will survive this fiasco.The only hope in this case is that UEFA will force the SFA to act in the same they they forced the Swiss to penalise Sio...

Scotland v Germany 1936 - Nazi Salute!

A Life Too Short:The Tragedy of Robert Enke

Just got this and think it will be very interesting and also extremely sad.Almost exactly 2 years since he tragically took his own life. Hopefully this will give an insight into what was going on inside his troubled mind.

Re: Killie Til I Die

I will get mine tomorrow. I intended to get it last week but my we boy was sick en route to Rugby Park and we got there just in time. He recovered pretty quickly and forgot all about his sickness as the goals went in!
Irrelevant I know but did I see there is a players strike in Spain?

Re: Tontine Park
