this is interesting (sic) - free lift and a ticket  (not free) for Brighton v Crystal Palace tomorrow; will be my first top flight English game for about twenty five years; already done the Amex for a championship game v Rovers (first game when it opened, so another sell out) but might be amusing to get a feel for the whole 'M23 derby' thing;

experience dictates that Palace fans are c***s, so will definitely be supporting Brighton - hoping for much venom, seethe and riotous disorder from all concerned;

deary me - don't believe the hype, that's all I can say after this early afternoon bore-fest; the football was fairly poor - maybe mitigated by very strong winds - but the much vaunted atmosphere was absolutely non-existent (as was my phone which i left at home, hence no pics); palace fans made a bit of a row and let off a smoke bomb after they scored (wooooh !) but no more so than any other visiting fans at any other run of the mill league game; home fans were piss poor to be point of being embarrassing; no venom at all, very little seethe, minimal riotous disorder (some hoardings outside the ground got manhandled by palace fans, a bit) but there wasn't a hint of menace from either set of fans - there was more angst with drivers vying to get out of the car park after the match; absolutely no way this deserves a place at the top table in any sort of sensible list of the most intense local rivalries

nice ground; very good access - exceptional, in fact, but shit football and the fans were just slightly wanky bystanders who failed to get properly invested in proceedings from either perspective - lamentable, uninteresting fare on and off the pitch - boooo !

Going to Copenhagen this weekend, so will be taking in a few games.

Tomorrow I'll be going to FC Roskilde v Kolding IF, which got moved from Roskilde's ground with a 6pm kickoff to a 3pm kickoff at a ground in Copenhagen, very strange. Saturday I'll be going to Hellerup IK v Frem and then Sunday I'll be taking a trip to Malmo v Eskilstuna.

Upper Annandale 1-3 East Fife in the Lowland Development League at New Tinto Park last night. Good competitive game, a late third from the Fifers sealed the win.

Development League or not, what's the point in this being played in Glasgow?

The Upper Annandale under 20s team are Glasgow based. I'm not really sure on the reasoning behind it.

do leith athletic and Edinburgh uni play on the same pitch or is it same facility,different pitches?
Adjacent pitches. Edinburgh University play on the grass stadium pitch at the bottom of this photo, Leith play at the fake plastic pitch further up the complex, just adjacent to the hockey pitches.

The Uni ground has became one of my favourite grounds to visit. Where else can you watch a game beside a biscuit factory, a train line and a volcano? Lovely home baking too!Screenshot_20200308_141153_com.google.android.apps.maps.jpeg

Rayo Vallecano v Elche in the Spanish Segunda Division.

If you find yourself in Madrid and Vallecano are at home then I’d definitely recommend checking them out - it’s dead easy to get to from the city centre. I really enjoyed my visit today. Their ground is quite old school, and has probably seen better days, but the lack of polish appeals to me with these things. It all felt like an authentic football experience.

The game was a good one too. Vallecano easily the better team in the first half And went in 1-0 after a penalty for handball, but Elche were like a different team after the break: fast, counter attacking football that Vallecano struggled to deal with, and crosses that caused havoc whenever they swung in.

Finished 2-3 to Elche. Absolute howler from the Vallecano goalie for #2. Vallecano had (a bit harshly) a guy sent off for a trip at 1-1 (that’s the aftermath in the picture), and there were a couple of good ‘handbags’ instances - about half the players involved in one just before half time.

And it’s lovely and sunny here. Around 20 degrees. Feels a long way from the Glasgow I left yesterday morning.

A great way to spend a Sunday lunchtime.

Glasgow Women 6-1 St Mirren in a friendly at Petershill yesterday afternoon. Was like a training session for the SWPL2 side for the first hour, with the Buddies coming into it a wee bit towards the end. Decent entertainment.

Perhaps not the most exciting but heading to Blackpool v Sunderland on Saturday afternoon.

 

First time heading to Bloomfield Rd and first time in Blackpool for years.

 

Looking forward to it. Any recent experiences of the place and/or decent pre match pubs?

Stay away from Yates at the seafront. This is good advice at the best of times, however there is a ticket-only event on for Sunderland fans featuring some 'entertainer' called Wee Phillie, whom Sunderland fans largely agree is an absolute danger to society. Take a look at this photo and judge for yourself..

I've got tickets for Barcelona-Leganes a week on Sunday. Not overly confident of it being played in front of a crowd though.
