Re: Neil Brown

So sad, I too have consulted his site many times for info, will be sadly missed by us , and dare I say ,programme editors up and down the country for his stastistics . I hope his research is not lost , but the loss to our football family cant compare to the loss of his own family.

Re: Predictions for Season 2015/16

I don't think I'm alone amongst a broad base of various club supporters that would like to see a sixteen club top division, maybe not for the reason Doncaster would want, but for the overall benefit of professional football in Scotland and I don't think by adding Falkirk or Queen of the South into t...

Re: Jimmy McGill

Coming from Milton myself, there was an error in saying Scaraway Street was in Partick in fact it is in Milton and Jimmy did live there .There were no single ends in Milton as it was a post war edge of the city housing estate as Drumchapel & Easterhouse was.

Victory Shield

I see England are not going to compete anymore in the Victory Shield as they think it has outlived its usefulness as preparation for under 16 English footballers. So sad .
