    The Eliteserien (top league) in Norway kicks off tomorrow, about 2.5 months later than normal. From what I can tell, there are 200 fans allowed in to each game in the first round of fixtures.


    I'll be keeping an eye on my lads, Viking, who won the cup and finished fifth in their first season back after a somewhat surprising relegation. They take on last year's runners-up, northerners Bodø/Glimt, in Stavanger - probably the tie of the first round. Champs Molde are away to Aalesund (no home match to unfurl the fleg, weird).


    Heia Viking!



    I've been looking online for info on how many fans are being allowed and how they've allocated them but drawn a blank. I've been watching some of the matches and haven't yet heard the commentary explain it. I thought the match on right now at Haugesund had maybe 250 in the stand.

    Just saw that a woman who died in California on Feb 6th was confirmed to have coronavirus. The first “official” US death from it was Feb 29th. Not beyond the realms of possibility to accept it was in the UK and killing people way before the first official death. 

    I read there was two deaths, both in Santa Clara, California well before the supposed first death. The one on the 6th and another on the 17th.

  3. STV News tonight, first of all stating 537 deaths in care homes in the past week, then after coming back from a report, saying the care home deaths have risen from 237 to 537 in the last week. Not the same thing. Really shoddy reporting. The overall total from the care homes seems to be 537.

    I thought some of the video was really good

    Where does he come from ? Strange accent ( am I allowed to say that ? )

    They're Bolton fans. Fair play to them, it would be easy to just ignore Scottish football. Seen a few of their vlogs and found them quite entertaining. Pity they seem to have chosen Rangers Mk2 as their Scottish team. And a bit of research on the Accies players wouldn't have gone amiss.

    Disappointed the BBC highlights didnt include the final whistle. I mean, 30 million pound striker Alfie hitting the bar and then the clown defenders throwing a goal in was good, but it feels like there was more to see and hear from lastnight.

    They've only got 1.09 footage up on the red button, hopefully they'll show the final whistle on Sportscene tonight. What not to love about 20,000 orcs doing their dinger?

    Rangers fans have paid tribute to manager Steven Gerrard with an eighth minute applause at Ibrox.

    The crowd took to their feet to show their support to Gerrard during Wednesday’s game against bottom club Hamilton.

    It comes following a difficult run of results for Rangers who, despite qualifying for the Europa League last 16, find themselves 12 points behind Celtic and out of both cups.

    After losing in the Scottish Cup to Hearts last Saturday the former Liverpool hero said he was going to ‘take 24 to 48 hours’ to do some ‘serious thinking’.

    But on Tuesday the 39-year-old said he was ‘ready to go again’ and was at Ibrox for the long haul.

    The eighth minute was chosen as it was the number that Gerrard famously wore with distinction during his Liverpool career.

    Rangers went on to lose the game 1-0 as they fell to 13 points behind leaders Celtic who also dropped points by drawing 2-2 at Livingston.

    Shades of our cup win in 1987 when there was applause for Chris Woods breaking a shut out record in the first half but later in the second half bottom side Accies shocked the home crowd after a Dave McPherson(Connor Goldson) blunder. Spooky.

    Also, a beaten manager who is a Liverpool legend and a stunning goalkeeping display McKellar/Southwood.
