    Scotland's shame

    The only club I can remember having its ground closed for crowd trouble was - wait for it - Huntly FC. Some supporters taking a short cut across the pitch at the end of a game allegedly pushed the referee over. Christie Park was closed for 2 months in punishment.

    Well said. Your 2nd paragraph is spot on, i had the phrase "never let the truth get in the way of a good story" quoted at me by a reporter I was complaining to about an inaccurate article. I took it further but in the end it was his word against mine.

    Other games on the go

    You are spot on. Everybody in Scottish football knows that Brown is a wind up piss artist who is way past his best and will probably move on to some easy pickings in Australia or Canada soon. Everybody it would seem apart from Morelos, Kent and Halliday who between them earn about £50k per week but between them do not appear to have the brains of a clucking turkey.

    Saints v Saints 16/3/2019

    Well you are certainly observant. That is very interesting, I did not realise Saints could tell how many were in each stand. Makes you wonder why on the odd occasion we have a big crowd they let too many into the East Stand and then have to move the excess.

    Saints v Saints 16/3/2019

    Thanks, you are well informed. I was puzzled as none of the usual sources were giving the crowd.

    Is Scottish Football truly incompetent?

    Fair point. McLeish should certainly get his cards. We have 8 games left in this Group and there is no way we are going to improve on the play off place we already have in the bank. An excellent chance for a new management team to bed itself in without the need to organise the usual meaningless friendlies.

    Is Scottish Football truly incompetent?

    To me most of the players last night appeared disinterested. Here is yet another break in their club careers where most of them are involved trying to improve their club's end of season position which will impact on wage packets. And for what? Who can believe that Scotland can earn a better deal out of this Group than that which we already have thanks to overcoming those footballing superpowers Israel and Albania.

    This is what happens when you leave Europe.

    Sevco pal says the only reason he is still there is the very fact that he is Steven Gerrard. That and the fact that he is a legend at the club the Sevco Chairman supports.

    Jeanfield v St Andrews - Saturday 2 March

    Hard lines, Swifts still look good for a top 5 finish. Am I right in thinking a place in next season's East of Scotland Premier would put them in the 6th tier of Scottish Football? Good luck anyway and thanks for keeping us informed of their deserved success on turning senior.

    Saints loanees

    I am seriously impressed Hoodlum. I would not be surprised if you could say what they were having for their tea at the time.

    A key word I heard was "unaudited".

    Scotland's shame

    Fair point but don't forget if they move south they will still be playing in Glasgow. You can just see a revised format for Sportscene, an hour devoted to the ugly sisters games against Fleetwood and Burton Albion (don't think they will get straight into the Premier or the Championship) followed by a quick 15 minutes run round "Scottish football today". Fortunately, I do not think the Sassenachs will touch them with the proverbial barge pole. Strict liability, imposed if necessary, is the only answer. There would not have been a cheap out of the Sevco boys on Wednesday if they were at risk of being kicked out of the cup.
