Re: Dutch Football 1981/82

Didn't realize at first it was Wikipedia but the seasons on offer looks like it was transferred to an Italian site on World football as I had already tried Wikipedia with no success and as I said on the last post RSSSF.

Re: Euro 2016

I was watching the Northern Ireland V Wales match, when the commentator was musing over the referendum result and made a comment about how the subject of one international team for Britain might raise its ugly head again, and he said it would mean the end of international football for Northern Irela...

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

I had a Scotsport or Scottish Football Book when I was a kid in the mid 1960's and it had a photo of Sugar Ray Robinson kicking off before a Rangers V Dunfermline game at Ibrox . IIRC John Lawrence the then chairman and Scott Symon were also in the photo, on the park . I'm pretty sure Robinson, had ...

Re: Who would you classify as the big Scottish clubs?

Taking my scale, I think you could say the same about a few other countries as well and I'm not comparing our clubs with other countries clubs but I'm saying what if you asked a Spaniard or an Italian, my take on Spain would be Pool 1 Barcelona, & the two Madrid clubs, Sevilla & Valencia . Pool 2 Re...

Re: Who would you classify as the big Scottish clubs?

To me there is only 5, Rangers, Celtic, Aberdeen , Hearts & Hibs, a few years ago , I would have added both Dundee teams to that but I feel they have downsized in the last few years . Both old firm members and Edinburgh clubs have upped the capacity of their stadia in the past few years, or in Heart...

League Cup Final

Who would have thought or even dared wager a few short years ago , that The Scottish Cup & The League Cup would be sitting in the boardrooms of Highland clubs at the same time. Thats what makes the game, that it is.

Partick Thistle reserves 1966/67

I'm just getting round to filling in a few details in my records on reserve team football and it seems the Jags 2nd X1 played 4 Reserve League fixtures, on consecutive nights, between Monday 24th of April & Thursday 27th. Can anyone verify this? If they did, I'm assuming they must have leaned heavil...

Re: Stewart Kennedy Dunfermline Athletic

I'm pretty sure he was the goalkeeper in a league cup section game I attended at East End Park in 1970 when rangers put 6 goals past him.

Re: Jimmy Hill RIP

He certainly was a trail blazer, his 1970 World Cup studio panel was a huge success, but I have never been impressed with the 3 points for a win that he successfully lobbied the Football League to adopt and the rest of the world followed suit. He wasn't a popular figure with the Tartan Army, but yes...
