Andy was a fixture in the Killie team for ten years from 1962-1972 and in that time played in 320 matches (inc 3 sub) in domestic and European fo...

Re: Scottish football from abroad

Queen of the South have been full time since 2007 David. :roll: Livingston are full time. Raith Rovers are to all intents and purposes full time (they have two part time first teamers, goalkeeper David McGurn who is a PE teacher or similar and centre half Dougie Hill who is a heating engineer).

Re: Scottish football from abroad

1. Maybe I didn't explain myself too well on the first point. I'm not arguing against a pyramid system, which I would heartily endorse. But in my view the only way to get over the unwillingness of the leading junior clubs to enter such a system is to put the existing three junior leagues on the same...

Re: Scotland v Gibraltar status as an international

Given that we haven't played them yet and also given historical results against some countries at the lower end of the rankings, I'm not so sure that the absence of ranking points is necessarily a bad thing. But this also causes some difficulties for FIFA. If they refuse Gibraltar a place in the nex...

Re: Scottish football from abroad

Thank you kickersman for your thoughtful contribution. Inevitably, a response means not just explanation but also opinion. To take your points in order: 1. Yes, Scotland doesn’t need so many governing bodies. When Hampden was rebuilt, the SFA, SPL and SFL all worked out of the fifth floor - three se...

Re: Longest Gap between fixtures?

Glasgow University have played Queen's Park just once in the Scottish Cup, on Nov 9th 1878. A week later, on Nov 16th, in the same competition Edinburgh University played Hibs for the only time. That's unless there are any Glasgow Cup/EoS Shield matches which people might consider to be 1st class fi...

TOP TIER AVERAGES

I am confident that the overwhelming majority of these figures are accurate or extremely close to being so (for instance I've seen different figures for Germany but these are from the most reliable source - the Bundesliga itself). There are a few which are doubtful, particularly in Africa and some p...
