  1. In my early teenage years, I played with Fir Park Boys Club . We were coached by Joe Wark and Sammy Campbell, and were part of Motherwell's official youth set-up. We enjoyed modest success, the fly in the claret and amber ointment in those days was Celtic Boys Club. National cup competitions ended when you met CBC, usually in the quarters/semis, by at least a three goal margin. Three dozen lads replete in green blazers and neckties would appear, all carrying the official CBC flight bag, desperate to pull on the jersey. Only two subs in those days, thus 13 lads stripped. Every one of the three

  2. I agree with a lot of that. The Deloitte PR stunt yesterday was a blatant attempt to wrestle back the narrative from days of negative press and collective dismay at how the SPFL have fucked this up. When even the likes of Scrote are highlighting the limited scope of the investigation (basically "look at what we show you and tell us what we want to hear") then you know there is more mileage in this. The lack of any football right now has created a vacuum where stories like this are food for hungry jounro's. It's all they have to write about. In normal times, with games going on this

  5. Browsing the ether this afternoon and chatting online with family, it seems there's growing dissent in Sweden with their government's approach to Covid19. Calls for stricter lockdown are increasing, with particular concern about the growing body count in Stockholm. There's also much talk about the high death rate among Somali immigrants - I was told this is more to do with a complete inability to comply with any advice on social distancing. The fear is definitely rising in Sweden so I wouldn't go holding them up as an example just yet. Also, it turns out the lockdown in Sweden is m

  6. I know and i've realised i have made a massive error in not including one of my favs David Speedie Although signed for Chelsea, I'm not sure if DJ played a game as Kerry Dixon and Mr Speedie played up top in nearly every game i think.

  10. Further revelations are starting to emerge about how Covid19 affects different elements of society. Last week we had the BAME crisis and now it transpires that men and women are dying from coronavirus in far greater numbers than all the other genders taken together. Someone needs to look into this before someone's feelings get hurt.

  11. I would assume it has something to do with the 'constitutional crisis' around that time. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/1975_Australian_constitutional_crisis I've had a look around and don't see anything to suggest US involvement.

  13. Why don't we have a system where Scottish politicians can run the Scottish health service? If we had a system like that then the Scottish voters could hold the Scottish politicians accountable when things went wrong in Scotland.

  15. So there was zero point in the EU being involved if it's left up to individual countries then? Little more than an EU propaganda stunt. No Neil doesn't set a time limit and I'd hazard a guess he's a lot more clued up on the matter than you or I could dream of being.

  18. Don't know Leggatt, but that is a decent XI, well as long as McCreadie was not lined up against George Best. Here is a difficult one (difficult for me, at any rate) : An XI of Scottish players who played furth of the British Isles (so no 'He once turned out for Dundalk, etc); as you said, earlier, it doesn't have to be a good side......

  21. Ann Budge seems to be telling the players to take a cut now or contract will be suspended. i wish there was an option other than a temporary wage cut but after careful consideration it is the only way for the club to proceed with financial certainty. having paid the players’ wages in full for march, i have written to them today to request the formal notification of their acceptance of the temporary wage cut proposed in order that we can process salaries next week. i remain hopeful that the players will accept for the reasons outlined above, as the only viable alternativ

  22. The scope of the Deloitte investigation is almost laughable but reality is that it will probably help the SPFL to persuade enough clubs to shelve the whole affair and get on with the crisis management surrounding C19. Hardly convincing it is not a difficult sell in these circumstances. Part of me now looks toward the existential threat coming into focus for football clubs, including our own and wonders why we continue on this route. If there was a realistic chance of getting 75% of clubs to vote in favour of a resolution for an Independent Inquiry, then perhaps but I don´t think th

  28. Another question would be: why Deloitte? I've no issue with them and believe they will act professionally. But how were they appointed? Who else was considered? What criteria were used to select Deloitte ahead of others? Again, from a reputational risk perspective, surely they could envisage being drawn into a shit storm of negative attention if they agree to perform such a seemingly skewed investigation?

  29. The Scottish Government has now set out its plan to get us out of lockdown. It's quite simple really ... we will continue to have social distancing until a vaccine becomes available. As I've been suggesting for a while, this is a disaster for our club, for the economy, but most of all for people's lives (many more of which will certainly be lost as a result of this approach). Since this is a forum about our club though, let's focus on that. If the club is able to allow fans back into Ibrox, it is highly likely to be limited. By how much? By my own estimation, consid

  30. I think Barry Ferguson was summed up when he left Rangers at the top of his game to be an average player in England and return to rangers half the player he had been. The nature of his exit from international football and his conduct during the le Guen era further enhanced his reputation as a downmarket ned.
