There was one in The Scotsman this morning which helpfully listed all six trophies won by Gordon Strachan as Celtic manager which managed at the same time to claim he had won seven!

Piloti in the current edition of Private Eye`s "NOOKS & CORNERS" column discussing Tesco`s takeover of Paisley refers to the town`s football club as ST.MIRRIN`S.

And the lad himself comes out with this from the Book of Distasteful Cliches on the eve of the Champions League final - "Notwithstanding his despotic tendencies, Mussolini's efficiency is an inherent trait in the autocratic, nay even dictatorial, rule of Ferguson and Guardiola."

Darryl actually has a couple of fillers in today's paper. In his other article he says of the Laird O' Govan: "Remarkably, 31 years have elapsed since his maiden European voyage: taking Aberdeen on a Cup Winner's Cup jaunt to Hungary to play FC Marek."

Must have been some jaunt. Especially considering Marek Stanke Dimitrov (the Communist era name for FC Marek Dupnitsa) hailed from BULGARIA.

Ach, foreigners. Probably all look the same to Darryl.

Paul Mitchell this afternoon at the end of the Scottish Cup Final: "All kinds of handshakes going on." Whatever could he have meant?

Talk of "6 clubs in Europe for the first time" also infuriates me: 1968-69...

My wife, not being Scottish, couldn't understand why that made me chortle uncontrollably for several minutes.

To be fair to Darryl, let's have a look at Andrew Smith in the The Scotsman, who writes "Falkirk will this week become the 19th club to represent the country in continental competition."

They'll be the 20th.

Does he list them? Who has he missed?

Two of the past participants no longer exist of course.

No, he doesn't list them. Yes, Airdrieonians and Gretna are no longer with us but that doesn't alter the fact that both played in Europe. Omitting them from the reckoning is like not counting Third Lanark or Vale of Leven among major trophy winners. In any case if it had been intentional to leave them out then the total would be eighteen of our current clubs.

Smith may just have been taking his cue from Gordon Waddell, a Falkirk fan -

'Well, now it is. Thursday night, I'll watch Falkirk become the 19th Scottish club to play in Europe.'
