  1. Annoying game, could have been 3-0 the other way. One of those jinx matches where every 50/50 goes against you. Three at the back doesn't help though.
  2. I've just thought of the perfect name for the club. Trigger's Broomhill.
  3. Goalie wearing white. Unusual. I think Shilton adopted it for a while and soon dropped it because it was too easy for opposing strikers to see him.
  4. ^ some of those don't look like football pitches - and the one labelled in Gibraltar is in La Linea. The ground in Gib is much more "British" with roofs over the stands. And is called Victoria Park, just to confused lost Stokies (or sailors from Irvine). The ground in La Linea was a present from Franco, because when he shut the border in the sixties, unemployment there increased about fourfold; none of the locals could do their cross-border commute. He promised international football there, which turned out to be a friendly against Finland.
  5. Talking of Cathkin Park, I love that the badge inset into the pavement is still standing proud...
  6. It's the omega point. The gap is now unbridgeable. Next phase is to drive EFL clubs out of business to remove the risk of relegation.
  7. One cannot have gradations of uniqueness, one either is or is not unique.
  8. Is this part of a subtle plan by the Scottish League? "You can have a permanent promotion place when your teams are better than Rangers Reserves."
  9. Ah, OK, thanks. Maybe someone could start up a club with a sponsorship deal from Flymo.
  10. Are they genuine kits or training tops? No badges on them. On the plus side, they seem to be trying to create unique typography for each club. Although for Valencia they seem to have given up and gone with Univers.
  11. Storer got sent off in his second match for us, about ten minutes after coming on as sub. As he left the pitch, he kicked the advertising boards so hard he broke his foot. On the plus side he spent his suspension with injury. He had a phenomenal talent though. The mismatch between talent and mentality is the greatest I've seen. Wish we had been able to sort his mind out. From what I've heard, his family made dysfunctionality look ordered. Chip off the old block.
  12. On a serious note, you've also got to find someone to play. When Sheffield FC started, the club rules expected members to buy one red shirt and one navy shirt, so they could divvy up into ad hoc teams to play each other. There was no thought of it being a spectator sport or a team becoming a representative side. So Killie may have spent their rugby years never playing any other rugby teams - just playing games amongst the membership. Plus one of the things I noticed was that Dumbreck had only ever played one game, a 1-0 defeat. Just dipping their toe in competitive action before Queen's Park put them to the sword in 1873.
