Versus Wales

In recent games, Scotland and Wales don't seem to have set any pattern in grounds used for consecutive internationals.

He also started yesterday's piece in the Herald by stating Burley "will pay the ultimate price" if we don't win both games. Really? I wonder, will it be gas, injection or firing squad?

Various Wimbledons and Clydebanks

After reading the question about Wimbledon here; http://www.guardian.co.uk/football/2009/jul/15/footballers-second-jobs-trivia ...I got to wondering if any teams have played Clydebank, ES Clydebank, East Stirlingshire and Airdrie United.

Just to show the big papers can do it too. Check the final sentence of "Cruyff's Dumb move" which contradicts my 1985 Pannini collection: http://www.guardian.co.uk/football/2009/may/17/seven-deadly-sins-pride-part-two Or the sadly incorrect closer on "Romanov's permanent revolution: http://www.guard...

What was the story behind Hibs using Hampden?

Why do all scottish national teams play in Dark blue, or are there any that don't?

The first rugby international was March 1871, football in November 1872, and I doubt there was a Queens Park relationship to the rugby team (looks blue to me). http://www.madras.fife.sch.uk/archive/fpbiographies/cluniesrossteam1871.jpg On differing colours how about this natty 20/20 cricket number? ...

On the theory that Queens Park made it to a semi in the future, would they have to play at Ibrox too?
