Scotland Away Strips: Fashion Faux Pas Or Trendsetting Triumph?

So Scotland’s new away strip has raised a few eyebrows this week. My initial thoughts? Well I like it and it’s certainly a grower. That said I really need to see it in person before making my final decision on it. I am a big fan of the Adidas kits that Scotland have been wearing […]

Standing Up For Malky Mackay

In my opinion Vincent Tan should never have sacked Malky Mackay. The Malaysian has ploughed vast amounts of cash into Cardiff City football team and as the owner he can do what he wants. But now he really needs to leave the Scottish manager alone. You can tell that Tan is just trying to deflect […]

Can Moyes Survive?

Things have never looked this bad for Manchester United in the English Premier League era. Last nights 2-0 loss to Olympiakos is another death nail into United’s season. Should the ‘Reds’ lose the return leg in a few weeks time then that could be that for them this term. For Man Utd to be out […]

Assessing Scotland’s Euro Chances

So we now all know who’ll face in Scotland as they seek to qualify for Euro 2016. Germany, Poland, the Republic of Ireland, Georgia and Gibraltar are the teams standing in the Scots way as they bid to reach a major final for the first time since 1998. The group doesn’t look that easy or […]

Footballers Fashion: COPA @ Football Nation

I am a huge fan of Football Nation. Well here is a sneak preview of the new COPA shop window in the heart of Edinburgh. I love the COPA t-shirt/hoodie showing their own version of a front page from La Gazzetta dello Sport (calling it Della Copa) . It combines two of my favourite things […]

Rumours are abound that Celtic’s Virgil van Dijk is attracting lots of interest from top clubs in England. A few of the daily newspapers are reporting both Manchester United and Manchester City are looking at the young Dutchman as they are on the verge of rebuilding their defences. Arsenal have also been credited with an […]

Scottish Fans: Community Ownership Week

More and more teams in Scotland are now being taken over by the clubs fans. The process has been made easier with bodies such as Supporters Direct Scotland giving the fans support and advice. Paul Goodwin, Head of Supporters Direct Scotland said: “Supporters Direct, as a whole, has a lot experience of fan and community owned […]

Wee Rovers Hit The Big Time!

Scottish football was a bit repetitive for those of us that grew up in the late eighties and nineties . From 1989 till 1998, Rangers were the kings. They achieved the feat of winning nine league titles in a row, equaling Jock Stein’s Celtic record from the sixties. In the same period of time Albion […]

Wenger Has To Take Giroud Off The Naughty Step

When the Arsenal team, to take on Bayern Munich, was announced at the Emirates, lots of eyebrows were raised. Gunners boss Arsene Wenger decided to keep top-scorer Oliver Giroud on the bench and started with French youngster Yaya Sanogo. I would say that it’s pretty obvious that Wenger has decided this is the best way […]

Why Man United Should Have Captain Carrick

With current captain Nemanja Vidic departing in the summer, Manchester United are on the lookout for a new skipper. It also looks likely that stalwarts Patrice Evra and Rio Ferdinand will follow the Serbian out of the Old Trafford doors.  So neither of them will be the new main man at United. If and it’s […]
