Alan Green on Radio 5 Live reached new lows of disdain. Decrying the game and the standard of the World Cup. Where His style once was novel is now just extremely grating. The funny thing about Alan Green is that i find him actually quite good as a pundit, say when he's doing 6-0-6. Good with the ca...

That was the Phil Anderton era, wasn't it? He was very visible in the Scottish media which is unusual for any official outwith the Old Firm. At least not without embarrassing themselves (cf. Keith Wyness). Seemed to have some positive ideas for Hearts to take them forward which is presumably why Ro...

No doubt large parts of the English media will still claim Rooney is the best player in the world, because he's doing it in the EPL. The same thing happened with Ronaldo before he moved to Madrid. The insinuation is, because they have scored 30 goals a season or whatever, they must automatically be ...

Sorry to go off on a tangent, but i was just wondering David how much Spanish you knew before you moved to Barcelona. Had you ever studied it before, say at school/college/university, or on your own? You'd have no doubt picked up a lot from your visits there and from friends i guess. How have you fo...

Football dynamo by Marc Bennetts is part guide to Russian football, part travel guide and part autobiography of the author's life in Russia. It's an enjoyable read and contains some eye opening tales concerning the corruption and racism there. I'm reading Tor! The Story of German football at the mom...

Oops. little mistake there, sorry.

It's funny you should say that David because i must be one of the few people round here who's never been to Blackpool. Always get a strange look when i tell people that. I wouldn't thank you for it either!

My God, it's changed days indeed in the place you come from. Used to be a week in Blackpool if you were lucky - and that was every second year![/quote]

Never mind anything else to do with the pros and cons of summer football (of which, i believe there are far more pros than cons), one thing that gets me almost screaming out in frustration and anger is the idea that we can't have summer football because, for one thing, 'people go on holiday in the s...

As for Kenny Clark's column, why would anyone be surprised? One of my biggest pet hates is former referees being trotted out in the media whenever there are controversial decisions. They will never ever do anything other than back up their mates to the hilt. They're just pointless, predictable colum...

'Walter' (the man with no surname) is absolutely untouchable as far as the journalists go, completely immune to criticism. As lbb said, the journalists still put forward this 'grandfather of the nation, wily old fox' image of him. A Rangers fan phoned Jim Traynor the other week to complain bitterly ...

I heard Talksport last night. Adrian Durham (an opinionated, rude, confrontational t*sser at the best of times) and Ray Houghton (a Scotsman!) were saying England had absolutely no one to fear outside Spain and Brazil. 'Absolutely no one'.. So they're immediately writing off the Germans, Dutch, Ital...

From this Killie fans perspective, watching the draw live today, i was getting quite excited when i realised there were only 4 teams left to come out and Killie and Ayr were still there! When Ayr came out at home in the 2nd last tie, i thought, 'oh, here we go, bring it on..' but no. Instead we've g...

Add to that 'on a shoestring budget', David. Another media favourite.

Sorry to go off the point slightly, but i'd say the only Scottish journalists i have any time for at all are Bill Leckie, Gordon Waddell (despite me getting into an email argument with him last Janaury, when he lazily chose to follow the sheep and become a fully paid up member of the 'slag Killie's ...
