    Hopefully not revealing any sensitive information here - I think it has been covered in podcasts and interviews over the last couple of months. There are 12 regular guests on the podcast right now, split across Glasgow and Edinburgh. The TV show is a distinct entity from the podcast, though it is inspired by the podcast. When the pilot was made, Craig Fowler picked the four people who he thought would do the best job on the couch, and I think pretty much all of us would have agreed with the line-up. The very best podcasts the Terrace does are the lower league ones with Craig Telfer, Craig Fowler and Shaughan, and Joel is the most knowledgeable about the Premiership as well as bringing a certain comic quality. The BBC really liked the pilot and therefore wanted to stick with that same line-up every week. Almost everyone else has been involved in the VT side of things at some point or the other. I'm sure we'd all have loved to have been sitting on that couch, but it would have been difficult for me and several others to balance it up with work commitments anyway. At the end of the day, you can't argue with the quality of the programme which has been produced, so I think the decision on the line-up has been totally vindicated, and I think everyone involved in the Terrace is delighted with how the show has been going.

    Look on the bright side Falkirk fans. If you guys do end up going down, think of the crowd wanks you'll be able to have in League 1. You'll be happier than a pig in shit.

    Thank you very much for the comments and feedback about the show over the last few weeks - it's great to read it's struck a chord with supporters and we're delighted with how it's been received so far. We're still learning as we go and trying to make each episode better than the last. Working on the show has been the best fun I've ever had in my life and I'm delighted to have the chance to continue up until the Scottish Cup final. We hope you keep on watching until then!

    Didn’t realise Scottish football had this high a volume of jammy wearers watching it. Shithousing is a part of the game at all levels. If anything, it’s one of the more entertaining elements of our game. If the behaviour on display yesterday was enough to justify violence, the cities of Barcelona and Madrid would’ve each looked like current day Syria in the Pepe/Ramos days. On Brown, a Ranger player - I think Jack - had a wee clipped heels effort on him early doors and he literally laughed it off. The fact that he has the last laugh 95% of the time is less to do with Brown being some kind of super-villain and more to do his club’s main rivals being a gang of perma-raging losers who pretty much never turn up for a big game. The only morally questionable aspect of all this, is deliberately targeting a literal simpleton to wind him up. I wasn’t complaining when McGregor smashed him 5 mins into our last game v Rangers though.

    Why at lower league games do the commentators apologise for some old boy swearing but 45000 singing f**k the pope is fine?

    c**t at Motherwell barged into me while simultaneously saying sorry, so he could get on the train ahead of me. I was too tired to react, but, I did take great delight in telling him to get off my reserved seat he'd decided to plonk himself on. Instant karma.

    We have a weekly email quiz at my work. One question was "what country is the football team Getafe from?" Colleague (female) put Iraq. "because of colonel Gadaffi" She is entitled to a vote.

    '"The decision to part company was not an easy one, especially given Alex’s status as a Scotland Hall of Fame member, earning 77 international caps, having played in three World Cups and taken charge of the national team for two spells," said Maxwell.' Sums up everything wrong with the folk in charge of our game. Who gives a f**k how many caps he earned, or whether or not he's in our 'Hall of Fame', he was a pish manager and oversaw arguably our worst result ever. Get him to f**k.

    Horrendous entitlement and arrogance from the Sevco fans. Absolute scum. They are hate and fans of almost every club would be utterly delighted if zero Sevco fans ever set foot in their ground again. They however think that they pretty much fund all of Scottish football and that clubs would die without them. That of course won't ever happen and they were the ones who died. They say they don't care no one likes them but its one of the things they all care about most in the world. Thick, disgusting, bigoted cretins. I despise them.

    ‘Shite like eyemouth’? Cmon to f**k mate thats not what our club is about? Regardless of the fact we’re not going EOSL ‘shite like eyemouth’ said we were welcome last year, that takes a bit of decency and it should be shown back to them?

    Before Dunblane, schools were pretty open areas and our high school was a throughway to and from the local college. We were deep into a high stakes game of jingles, ten bob game, serious stuff. We all have that one mate who is a man before the rest of you and ours was Big Jack. Sound guy and very good amateur boxer. He and I were last two in and were walking up to the wall to check who's coin was closest and would lift the lot. Before we got there, two bams, probably 19 or 20 year olds, heading to the college cut in and lifted the money, walking away laughing. Being a wee c**t with a big heid, I did f**k all, but Jack went after them. "Haw that's my money ya p***k" One guy just laughed, but the other got noised up and came at Jack. Before he got close enough to grab him, Jack stepped in and landed an absolute beauty of a punch to his jaw, swiftly followed by a flurry of punches before he went down and out. His mate tried to have a swing at Jack, who just ducked it and one punched the boy who landed on his arse. Absolute scenes ensued. The headmaster had been nearby and seeing the gathering crowd came over and split it all up, told the two guys to be on their way and lead Jack away to his office. Apparently he said that whilst he could not condone gambling, nor fighting, he was pleased to see Jack sticking up for his friends against "a couple of wide men". Instead of punishment he just asked Jack to promise he would never ever hit any of his classmates (or he would kill them), to which he agreed and that was that.

    Lennon wants him to do it. Lawwell wants Lennon to carry on like a fanny. The same hierarchy of scummy behaviour and intentions exists in their blue reflection. This shit sells to its intended recipients. The thick, low order bigoted scum who follow them. Its why strict liability will never exist here. Its why no genuine attempt whatsoever is made to deal with sectarianism or fan behaviour by either club. Its why the Green Brigade and the Vanguard Bears are pandered to. Bottom line is, the business model of both of these clubs and the lynchpin of their commercial success is fuelling the fire of hate and intolerance of the other. That will never change.

    It says something for an extraordinary level of ineptitude in performance that we opened with a doubleheader against Kazakhstan and San Marino and are on course to emerge with negative GD.

    I think it's unfair to pin this on Rangers and Celtic, and 100% right to broaden it out to a problem in Scottish football. For example, last season against Hearts in the cup at Fir Park, tense game, players niggling at each other, fans getting rowdy, and then McHugh pops up with a last minute screamer, almost the last kick of the ball getting it right up them to send them crashing out and us to Hampden. Walking out the ground and a group of 4 Hearts "fans" who had obviously targeted me and my mate as Motherwell fans, came straight towards us and said "How do we get back to the carpark at the Civic centre from here mate?". Obviously we're not for backing down so we started pointing the finger going "just head down there til you come to the crossroads mate, turn right and then go as far as you can. It's right across the road from there you can't miss it". At this point he actually taps me on the shoulder, right in front of the Old Bill and says "Cheers mate, all the best in the semi". I looked right at him and came right back with a few verbals that I'm ashamed of now, but at the games you're just not thinking with the same brain. Something along the lines of "better wipe the tears away before you drive!". And we all just walked away chuckling at what had just went down, and how close it had all came to utter carnage. But that's just Scottish football for you, and I don't blame the fans. I'm not really like that but you change as a person for those 90 minutes.

    Why? Scotland overwhelmingly voted to remain, I want them to support a new ref or revoke. No form of brexit benefits Scotland.

    TBH I find it quite apt that the SFA, from the very top, with all of the possible solutions available to them to put in place positive and lasting change in non league football, have picked the worst "solution" they possibly could have to push to proposal. 0.25 promotion places to each of the longstanding pyramid feeders, 0.5 promotion spots for the incoming juniors, which includes a bunch of teams that can't even be promoted based on the pyramid rules, with two league's covering the same geographical area and 50% of the feeders running a separate disciplinary system based on making money to pay the wages of the only person that seems to benefit from this. It is an abomination of an idea which needs to get in the fucking sea. The answer here has been so simple from the off even a half competent leadership at the SFA could have got it over the line. West comes in at Teir 6, North of Tay in a new league (as the ERSJFA have already proposed) until the boundary question is answered, get ERSJFA and EoS round a table to agree a controlled merger that doesn't negatively impact any clubs from either association even if that needs another transition season of all in conferences at Teir 6 to work out Teir 6, 7 and 8 places the season after. Clear plan of who goes where needed on performance so everyone knows what they are playing for. Job done. In any normal walk of life, the role of the SFA here should have been that of arbitration, to mediate all sides who, naturally, would be looking out for their own interests, in order to get the right solution. Christ even a workable solution! It appears they have picked a side, and the side they've picked is the one who declined to enter discussions at the outset 5 years ago and up until a few clubs broke ranks in the East were openly disparaging about the pyramid they now want to force their way into on their own terms. This could end up an absolute clusterfuck that in the end only really benefits one man. And the frustrating thing, as with most things in Scottish football, it's been made so much harder than it had to be. It's clear both Junior and Senior want some solution, which is a start. Doesn't seem to be much in the way of negotiation or concession on either side though. Concession from each for a fair solution should have been Maxwell's role. Not pushing the agenda of one side, regardless of which side that was.

    It's been nearly three fucking years now and some people still think that there is some 'ideology' underpinning the government as opposed to 'just cling to my job for as long as possible and stop my party from imploding'.
