Georgia 1-0 Scotland 4th September attendance

Why? It is not possible losing against Georgia. Why our National Team did not a shot on goal during the 90 minutes? I hope that in Scotland it is possible to find soon some players who are better than who have worn the blue shirt last night. I would like always to see players proud to wear the blue ...

Re: Johnny Russell

Snuff, I do not know how old are you. I am about 59 and I had dictation at Primary School too. A surreal silence accompanied the hour of dictation. I remember, yes "good old days". During those years surely excessive severity toward the students, but now the education is gone. Please let me know cle...

Johnny Russell

Hi, When Johnny played for Scotland on November 2014 I registered him in my archive as Jonathan (Johnny) Russell. Many of you maybe have seen his name on my pages of Scotland matches on Rsssf. I always use first and last name of the players and occasionally the nickname if it is necessary to identif...

Re: Friendly Scotland v Qatar

Yesterday I sent a mail to the Scottish FA to clarify the doubt. They replied to me this morning :

" Morning Gabriele

Official attendance recorded by the Scottish FA is 14,270.
Hope this helps.

Best wishes
The Scottish FA "

So I think that 14,270 is clearly the right number.

Re: Switzerland vs Scotland in 1948

Hi Alan,

are there some news from the Mitchell Library about the Swiss subs Bickel / Tamini ?
Did not yet you went there?

When it will be possible, please let me know.

I think that the sub was at H-T as Andy explains with his reply, but if you can see some other sources...

Thanks to Andy who told us that their name changed to Third Lanark AC in June 1903. Unfortunately, it is not yet enough.....I...
