    Superb idea.

    The last two have only been one season wonders.

    I have a friend who was a director at Albion Rovers. He did a lot of work touring Lanarkshire schools and spreading an anti sectarian message. He took kids to Auschwitz to show them where sectarianism can lead. Chizzy was with Rovers at the time and my friend took him along to a few events to help out. He assisted with some of the talks and even though he was with a diddy club, the boys in particular would be quite impressed by Chizzy's message. One day whilst leaving one of these anti sectarianism events, Chizzy's phone went. The ringtone? A well known Ulster folk song extolling the virtues of an item of regalia which once adorned the head of the singer's household.

    Beanie has a half sized guitar there. Just saying.

    The problem is that the price they paid for the club was on the basis of the club moving. They are undoubtedly going to be looking for an exit that gives them the highest compensation. They’ll definitely not get anywhere near what they paid or what they’ve paid since for planning matters, publicity etc. There are several scenarios which would threaten the future of the club. I expect we’ll know pretty soon what they plan to do as I don’t imagine their appointment of a new director is for no reason.

    Ian Wilson and Peter John Steede are now the only two directors according to Companies House. There has been mention made over several years of others' involvement, but these are parties who wish to remain anonymous. I’m not even sure if it is only two others unless that has been stated.

    Brabco news. Chris Stainton has left the building.

    Just got this delivered via my EBay purchase. It replaces the one which I lost in 1976.

    It would have been Gilbert Lawrie's birthday today. Only his late wife Fiona came before Dumbarton FC in Bert's affections.

    This was from two current players and a fairly recent retiree. They all seemed to agree on the point.

    RE. Beanie. I heard a chat on Sportsound yesterday between Darren O'Dea, Scott McDonald and Tam McManus. One of them - I think it was McDonald said "Ask any footballer that hasn't had the pre-season and they'll tell you that it makes a massive difference to their fitness"

    I enjoyed both the Paddy Boyle and Mark Docherty ones. Just off to listen to Rory Loy.

    The Peter Steede pictured is also the only person involved an a £100 company called Key Introductions (I'm not making this up)
