Re: 25/10/1975 line up requests

I made the decision to throw all my copies of the Rothmans yearbook in the bin last year after posting on here if anyone would want them for free. This book would have had all your line-up answers! Sorry I can't help with with the info you need.

Re: Scottish Football Almanac 3rd Edition 2016/17

The latest edition of the ‘Scottish Football Almanac’ 2016/17 popped through my letterbox yesterday. The author Andy McGregor has to be congratulated for producing such a magnificent and detailed book, which will be the football bible for the season ahead. For every senior club, either 3 or 4 pages ...

Re: NLS Visit 2016?

Hi guys,

I am waiting for final confirmation from Ian Scott regarding the NLS visit but should find out next week for sure. He needs to make sure that other staff members are available on the day. I will post ASAP.

Re: Football criticism

I forgot to mention that Celtic thrashed Arthurlie 7-0 in the following seasons Scottish Cup, so got their revenge.

Re: Football criticism

The defeat for Celtic the other night was a truly shocking result but maybe not the worst in their history. The 1897 Scottish cup defeat to Arhutlie is surely right up there.

Re: Euro 2016

Amazing result for Wales tonight! Heading down there for a weeks holiday on Monday, should be a great atmosphere for the game on Wednesday. I quite fancy Wales for the final now, I haven't been greatly impressed with Portugal. The longer this tournament goes on the more I am wishing it is the 'year ...

Re: NLS Visit 2016?

20th August is better suited for me now. I will get in touch with Ian Scott at NLS to confirm date. If there is anything specific anyone wants to see on the day then please post here and I will pass it on to Ian. As well as newspapers there may be an opportunity to request books that may be of inter...

Re: Euro 2016

From what I have saw of the tournament so far it has been to a high standard. I have been delighted to see the progress made by the 'smaller' nations such as Iceland and Albania. The 2020 Euros should be even better with the games spread throughout 13 countries and even if Scotland don't qualify the...

Re: Another 'missing' Scotland internationalist

Another 'new' internationalist, that's a great find Andy! When I did the research for my Scottish Internationals archive at the RSSSF I admit to using a Rothman's football yearbook as my initial research and built it from there. Bear in mind that in those dark days most research was done at a librar...
