  1. I would agree, it will be decided by what the TV companies want the EPL to do. Scotland will have no choice but to follow suit.
  2. The fate of this season and the format for next season will be decided by the TV Companies who at present have the sense to keep quiet whilst they wait for the Covid 19 situation to begin to settle down. Once they see the future a bit more clearly they will soon lay the law down. He who pays the piper calls the tune! The football authorities on the other hand are running around like headless chickens making contradictory statements at every available opportunity. They are clearly unaware that most of us think they are clueless and in that sort of situation it is better to say nothing than to speak up and remove any possible doubt. Luckily more important matters are in the hands of two ladies who know what they are doing, Nicola Sturgeon and Catherine Calderwood.
  3. Would not try to compete with you in the memory stakes Hoodlum, you are damn good. A few other names spring to mind, Mc Fadyen, Walker, Hodgson, Lachlan but maybe a wee bit later. Neither Ewan (Ernie?) or Archie Baird took prisoners that was for sure. I remember a game when ian Rodger was sent off for going in hard on the keeper. Least he thought he was sent off, the opposition defenders were trying to give him a doing and the ref. broke things up and told Rodger to get up the park. Rodger thought he said off and left and the ref. did not notice. Happy days - keep safe.
  4. New investment put "on hold". That is likely to be a euphemism for cancelled especially as most of this new money was supposed to be coming from the Far East! Bit like the letters we all get from energy suppliers and insurers which cheerfully tell us charges have been revised, ie increased.
  5. Great summary Hoodlum. I was only 10 when he left. I know he was fast but I don't really remember that, what I do remember was the excitement that used to build when he was straight through on goal. He never seemed to miss but he probably did!
  6. Great stuff, still no sign of the double decker bus that seems to have hit the United keeper at both our goals!
  7. Bit like the old joke about the Murray Royal patient who asks to see a visiting professor to try and prove he is completely sane and has been kept in the Murray for 20 years unnecessarily. The prof conducts an hour of rigorous tests and becomes convinced the guy is right. He promises to raise the case with the authorities and walks away only to be hit a stunning blow to the head by a brick. With blood everywhere he turns to see the guy standing there with a smile saying "you'll not forget now"?
  8. Seems Brora have had a change of heart and now say they fancy the step up. Bet League 2 treasurers are not quite so keen.
  9. Highland League have ended their season early and awarded the title to Brora Rangers although mathematically they could still be caught, A decision that won't please a certain Glasgow team. Might not please Brora either since they have made it clear that they do not wish promotion to the SPFL.
  10. With respect m'lud Day 1 - Blame the kaffliks and lock doon Day 2 - Blame the kaffliks and ........
  11. Latest from Ayebroke - decide the season on the basis of the league positions at the halfway point. Guess who would top that table? But only if they beat us in the game they would have in hand!!!!
  12. With Traynor I think the correct phrase is - do you think he could do a job on Saints!
  13. I wonder if Sevco are also the club demanding that the season be declared null and void. Anyone care to guess what Sevco would be saying if they and not Celtic were sitting 13 points clear at the top of the league?
