I downloaded a cracking wee application for my iPhone a month or two back called iFooty. Crap name but cracking wee bit of software if the wife has dragged me and the kids somewhere when the mighty Well are away to the Dons or Caley Thistle etc. It grabs the BBC live text update and refreshes automa...

Hmm - if I can find out about the Swedes I'll let you know... Bob is a decent footballer who some have taken to quite warmly. I still can't believe that he is playing for us. Sometimes he offers something in the middle of the park and avoids yellow cards. Other times, such as the home tie against Na...

I can't comment on BBC Alba and the Challenge Cup sponsorship as I have no knowledge of it apart from your post above but what I actually wonder is what Willie will get for his Scottish Cup deal. I can't see a wealthy businessman stumping up £2M over two years so that the Scottish Government can lab...

My reading of it was that Willie was stumping up the £1M each season for the next two with the branding rights going to Holyrood.

How very magnanimous of the big man....

Does Boyd really think Burley picks him with no intention of playing him? What sane manager would waste one of his squad positions in such a way? Clearly Boyd is simply intoxicated with an inflated sense of his own worth. He might better ask himself why it is that three top managers have all decide...

I disagree strongly with Kris's decision plus the manner in which he's had it announced.

Same went for Weir when he pulled the same stunt.

Abject. Totally abject.

Conceding two sloppy goals (esp the 2nd) from freekicks.

Bob Malcolm - appalling display.

Total lack of shape when we ended up with 4 strikers on the park and no central midfield.

Sorry - rant over.

Yes - a bleak performance by Scottish clubs all round so far.....

Heartily agree. "Plucky" & "brave" my a***. All 3 Scottish clubs have been awful. I can only suggest Paul Mitchell was trying to be kind ito the Doonhamers in his commentary on Tuesday. One fluky long range effort was virtually all I could see to their advantage. The best thing to say is they weren...

I don't know about that but it sounds more plausible that for each of the finals we have qualified for we had red socks.

However, that's by the by - I can assure you than none of the other red socks had swirly navy line designs.
