Touch Line Data

David,

I just had a look at the Sky pae you linked. It looks like Sky have struck a deal with Touch-Line Data Systems of Glasgow, as the layout is similar to the stats on the Touch-Line website: www.touch-line.co.uk

Old Firm Referees

Hi David, the forum idea is great. Since the last old firm game I have read a lot about using non-scottish referees at future matches.
