Just out of curiosity, is there any connection with the Scotland Roseberry colours and Partick Thistle/West of Scotland? Also, Richmond RFC in London and Richmond Aussie Rules team wear these. Anyone know of a connection?
What about 3 points for a win, 2 for a score draw, 1 for 0-0? I thought it might make the shier teams try for at least an opening goal rather than shut up shop from the start when the big guns come to town. Any thoughts?
Oh they were real all right. Drew Cochrane in his centenary history of the Ayrshire Juniors says the club (originally Glenbuck Athletic) took the name because many locals joined the 11th Hussars and villagers started wearing hats like the Hussars. The 11th Hussars were nicknamed 'The Cherrypickers'...
You`re right. They think it makes them sound pretty dam` tough. You never hear of a football or Rugby club called "BLUEBELL" or "PRIMROSE" anymore. If anyone remembers the 1960s radio series "THE NAVY LARK" they`ll know that Leslie Phillips (sub lieutenant) played for a side called the "GOSPORT GAD...
Neutral countries did play some international matches but even these were heavily influenced by wartime events. Sweden played several games v Denmark, Finland, Hungary, Germany & Switzerland. Presumably they travelled mainly overland and under guarantee. Their last wartime game was away to Hungary ...

Just out of curiosity,, which was the fourth Glasgow ground capapble of housing 60,000 spectators that Bob refers to? Firhill. Pre-war the capacity was as much as 70,000. The ground record is 54,723 for Scotland v Northern Ireland in 1928-29. In 1939 total capacity at the six Glasgow league grounds...
Is there not a similar story at the moment with Andrew Driver of Hearts? He's been brought up here, accent and all, but is chasing a place in the England U21 because of the "gentlemen's agreement" thing.
I'm sure for a few years they had a Scottish version of Shoot. It had a different cover and the posters were of a more Scottish slant. The rest of the mag was the same as its English counterpart. I think this was in the 1990s. There was definitely a different Scottish cover in the summer of 1986. J...
To me it's reminiscent of the 1984 competition, which (I am sure totally coincidentally) was the last time there was no UK and/or Irish participation. Scandalously, there was (IIRC) no live coverage in the UK until the semi-finals. As a 10 year old and having only been interested in the game for ab...
He came damn close to saving Hibs from relegation. I can't remember if it was a draw or victory needed against Dundee United at home on the last day, but we were in front at one point, needless to say losing in the end, 2-1. For his flaws, he gave us the Joy of Sauzee, and Latapy.
