I'm sure you have the figures, but in 1986 Hibs defeated Celtic in the Scottish Cup at ER in front of 24k. A few weeks later Hibs went to Darkheid in the league and the crowd was just 20k. Celtic went on to win the league that season. I think your analysis is spot on: have they really permanently ch...

A couple of early observations, Old Firm attendances have never been higher. Is it because there is so little chance of any other team winning the league? Also, once another team does win the league, that will surely end the high attendances at the Old Firm. Rangers attendances are not as solid sinc...

Hibs squad is quite interesting, and never contained even an approaching all scottish contingent. This is because we had the Frenchman Beuzelin, the Irishmen Shiels, Morrow, Murdock and the Englishmen Murphy, McDonald, Hogg, Antonio Murray, Craig Rocastle, Mark Venus and Simon Brown. Throw in the Fr...

France have a system whereby they are only allowed 19 over 20 year old players, no? That would be a good way of getting round legislation, would it not? The thing that I really like about French football is the "league tied" bit. That is you can't play for two sides in the same division in the same ...

See the Rangers attendances.

Did you take the offishul figures or the real figures?

Was it not the season before last where attendances were given as nigh on 50k when there was about 10k in the ground?

How many countries are members of UEFA/FIFA that are not "countries"?

I'd guess that 25 years ago, only the home nations were the only non proper countries, but that has changed in the period since.

If Denmark won the Olympics would it mean the end of the Faroe Islands? Can't see it myself.

I'll send a link to this page to Andy Mitchell at the SFA. He'll correct the archive if it's wrong. Mistakes happen, and it would be good if Mr Mitchell could post here. Erich, of course had a german father, so whilst I have no doubts that the information you have is correct, I would also be none t...

OK, you can argue whether 'Shire and Stenny are in the 'west' but this will always be a problem once you opt for regionalisation. I'll miss out your other points, and come back to them, but this has not proved to be a problem with the East Superleague. The bottom three drop out: if it's 3 fife team...

There would be no more junior sides capable of a league existence and all the dross would have gone. Is 42 teams too many? If we had just 32 "senior" teams would that make a difference? What useful purpose do East Stirling serve? Albion Rovers? They might move between the 2nd and 3rd divisions...wh...
