  1. On BBC TV News (not BBC Scotland) at about 6.45 pm the Sports presenter conceded that first place in the sports slot must go to Rangers in Seville, though he didn’t sound as though that was a good idea. He introduced one Jane Dougall in Seville to describe events there which she did stony faced. Reference was made to success in Barcelona and failure in Manchester. The presenter duly gave her the chance to comment on the trouble in Manchester. Dougall said:

     

    I was there. I was witness to two hundred and fifty thousand Rangers fans who rioted, it’s fair to say, in the city centre”

     

    What? She counted them? And they all rioted? One of my boys was there and he didn’t riot nor anything like it. BBC will be getting a letter in the morning. Meanwhile perhaps @26th of footcould tell me if Dougall has previous?

    Excuse my cynicism. But isn't Mr Buchan just making sure he doesn't alienate followers of the Old Firm? How many 3 bobs might his publication lose by their omission? Let's not forget the Welsh either. Terry Hennessey? 😀😁😅

    Nobody paid £M1 until 1979, Trevor Francis to Forest.
     

    Greig wasn’t unknown in England and Gemmell was still famous for his Euro cup final goal.

     

    Hennessy is a bit odd. Mike England, Alan Durban even Gary Sprake would have been better. 
     

    I don’t think CBFM was bothered about circulation figures in Scotland or Wales. Readers weren’t so touchy back then.

    Can't disagree with Caldow but it's a brave move to play him at right back

    His first game for Rangers was at right back when George Young was out injured.

     

    I had to check the stats for this. Capped 29 times for Scotland at left back and 11 times at right back.

  4. Admin, there’s a guy on here been defacing illustrious names. Ban him. Oh, wait. It was Admin that did it.

     

    Here’s the team. The defence is the easy bit, so strong that I don’t have to worry about defensive midfielders so Nobby Styles and Lee McCulloch have to sit this one out. I can run wild with attacking players but still have to omit superstars.

     

    Zoff;

     

    Caldow, Baresi, Maldini, Facchetti;

     

    Messi,

    Cruyff, Gento;

     

    di Stefano, 

    Puskas, Pele.

    Good players adapt to any surface 

    They do. I expect Uilleam ran in three tries at Millerston, converted them and took over as emergency hooker for the last ten minutes when the first pick drowned and won the strike against the head in three consecutive scrums.
