I've put out an appeal for you on Pie & Bovril.

I managed to get some pictures scanned, which I couldn't work out how to post here, so I've posted them over there.

Go onto ebay and look at the trading cards/sticker catagory. You can lift the images off there. I have Ogden Tabs of R McColl, Bobby Walker, Livingstone, Alec Smith, J Drummond, Nick Smith, Jack Robertson, Neil Gibson and Harry Rennie. They're from 1902 I seem to remember. Unfortunately I don't have...

I think he'll be apologising again tonight.

Evidence of devine power perhaps?

I'm trying to remain unbiased on this issue but to me the "tackle" was out and out thuggery.

No intent? Don't make me laugh.

He managed to stay in his feet and if the referee doesn't see a lunge, you usually get away with it.

Hearts 16594 -173 The lower average was due to a cock-up in the ICT game. The game was supposed to be sold out before the match with away fans being offered sections L and M. A communication failure between Hearts and ICT meant L was left empty on the the day. Also, Falkirk had 2 sections numbering ...

What's happening to Aberdeen's crowds.

Today's "New firm" match had only 10,747.

I thought this fixture was a crowd puller.

It is true to say that supporters only want their team to win. It is also true to say that if the agents and managers are driving up the cost for signing one player, the club then has less money in the kitty to buy the next one. If found guilty, managers should be suspenpended or expelled from the g...

Bungs and tapping up

According to Jimmy Calderwood he doesn't think that managers in Scotland take incentives to take players, based on the assumption that the deals are on a lower scale in money terms. George Graham was found guilty of it 10 years ago when Rangers and Celtic were splashing out big style. Messers Flo an...

I subscribe to the opinion that if you actually buy the paper you are in effect sanctioning the awful journalism in it.

Why would the Sun let fact get in the way of a good story, when they only really want to appeal to the Celtic dummies.

They know their readership. That's all.

May question is. Did you actually buy the paper or did you scan it while waiting in the barbers?
