  1. Willie Henderson on doing his Best 11 now and fkin Chico has just announced up front that Willie's team from his 12 years at Ibrox will hands-down beat any of the other teams from Collins / Strachan / God etc. Although they've now allowed him Lev Yashin because he played in a pishy jumped up Rest of Europe friendly match with him once.... wireless aff.
  2. Not entirely the same, but it got me thinking about when Davie Robertson, by then a fixture in the Rangers starting line-up, rather naively showed his face in the Dons end in a Glasgow semi-final in the 1990s and had to be escorted out by five-oh for his own safety.
  3. Have you seen Korean women? Such a thread would have slim pickings due to diet, genes, culture and ubiquitous cosmetic surgery. Great place IMHO TBQHWY.
  4. It's not really any surprise that Spence and his ilk have no concept that there are heaps of senior fitba clubs outside the 42 SPFL clubs. Still annoying though. Bob Crampsey would be spinning in his grave if he could see what passes for professional Scottish fitba journalism these days.
  5. https://www.pressandjournal.co.uk/fp/sport/football/aberdeen-fc/2276063/mcinnes-looking-to-reignite-the-fire-at-aberdeen/ P&J confirming it now. Yas.
  6. Round 1 of the Norwegian Eliteserien took place on Tuesday and Wednesday, in front of a select few hundred in each ground. Molde beat promoted neighbours Aalesund 4-1 away from home to start their title defence. Nigerian striker Leke James - top goalscorer in the league last season - had an eventful day against his old team - he gave away a penalty (although Aalesund missed it), scored Molde's third, then got himself sent off. The most surprising result was probably in Skien where home team Odd lost by the odd goal in three (see what I did there?) to newly promoted Sandefjord - all three goals coming in the last ten minutes of the game. The last of the three promoted teams, Start, who came up after winning a playoff against Lillestrøm, battled to an entertaining 2-2 with Strømsgodset. In Stavanger, Viking got themselves 2-1 up by the break but collapsed in the second half as Bodø/Glimt bashed in three goals without reply. Stabæk and Mjøndalen played out a nil-niller, and up in Trondheim it was also a stalemate between perennial Celtic opponents Rosenborg and Kristiansund. Sarpsborg 08 had a difficult start to the season against Vålerenga who got a 1-0 away win, although the home team will presumably be happy to put the whole "giving a contract to playacting cheat Kyle Lafferty" affair behind them. Finally, the west coast derby in Haugesund saw a dramatic finish as Brann grabbed a winner with 96 minutes on the clock, which secured a 2-1 win and three points to take back up the road (there might be a short ferry trip involved too.... ) to Bergen. The second round of fixtures is this weekend, with two games tonight and eight tomorrow. I haven't seen anything about the current cap of 200 fans being increased, but it kinda makes sense that they would play two rounds of fixtures first before changing that - it gives each club one home game under that restriction.
  7. What do you expect elite footballers to shout at each other? In-depth criticisms of the latest Banksy installation? A treatise on the role of society in the post-capitalist world? Hold it ....man on ...man on ....he's cheating ....outside you ....drop in... DON'T SINK! DON'T SINK! I don't think it changes much from pub league to world cup final TBH. The top boys just do it a lot faster.
  8. Simpsons "already dead" meme required here....
  9. He's going to be the Jim McInally of the lockdown generation.
  10. I watched the Haugesund game last night and there were heaps of folk watching from the balconies of flats which overlook one end of the pitch. There was actually a decent atmosphere - a few hundred folk can make a fair old racket. But aye, all games were capped at 200 fans - Viking for example had 100 sponsors and 100 normal season ticket holders drawn by ballot. Will keep an eye on how many are allowed in for the second round of games this weekend.
  11. Won't they just shift their games against us diddy teams to earlier in the season though?
  12. 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!
