Her name was Lyra McKee

The words are difficult today. Very difficult. Usually, that means I find an excuse to do something else.

Big Mike has a good day in court

I think it is fair to say that the folks at Sports Direct are very happy about how their court case went the Sevco High Command.

A tale of two Sevcos

It is the birth defect of the new club. In 2012 there were two Sevcos from the get-go and they’re both still around.

Inculcating credulity

In the immediate aftermath of the Off License Putsch in 2015 Mr David Cunningham King spoke of glowingly of his “co-investors”.

Another Hoopy Monday and the value of genuine journalism

Yesterday the good guys won at Hampden. The final score was: Football 3 Thuggery 0 Neil Lennon couldn’t bring himself to watch as Odsonne Édouard stepped up to take the penalty.

Bloody Sunday in the Punjab

As I have written here before there is remarkable historical amnesia among the average Brit apropos the crimes of their empire.

Difficult conversations and the Debenhams effect

I was interested to learn that the regular Friday conclave of the Sevco High Command was brought forward a day.

Barrier grief

I probably should have known that money would be at the core of the Great Fence of Auchenhowie story.

Get your tickets or miss the Rebellion!

Yes, this is Rebellion week! Mr Producer contacted me last night to tell me that the Saturday performance was now SOLD OUT.

One week until Rebellion

This time next week the cast of Rebellion will be preparing for the final performance of a three-night run at Websters Theatre.

Alfredo and Del Boy

I’m hearing that yesterday on the playing fields of Auchenhowie Señor Alfredo José Morelos Aviléz and Mr Let’s Go almost had a square go.

Broony and why facts should always be sacred

Consider this, in a football match, the captain of the victorious side is assaulted twice by opposing players.

Pyro in Paisley

Last night Celtic got the job done in Paisley. It wasn’t a stellar performance from the league leaders.

Not an April Fool prank from Sevco

If I had received this on Monday morning then I would have been immediately suspicious that I was being pranked because of the day that was in it.

Resolution 12 information on new website

The Resolution 12 Guys probably did not imagine that six years on that they would still be at this stuff.

Football Blogging Awards 2019 Finalist!

Firstly to everyone who voted for me míle buíochas! Getting this far is an achievement for your humble correspondent and I’m very grateful.

Brit for brains Brexit is now a global joke

Last night in the Fun Palace of Westminster there was a learned and respectful debate among the honourable members.

With their season over Sevco have a new PR strategy in place

I’m told that in the immediate aftermath of the match yesterday there was a new PR plan put in place at the basket of assets.

Class proves decisive as the Champions educate Sevco

In the aftermath of Celtic’s victory, yesterday much was made of the fact that Sevco were a man down for much of the match.

Un regalo de Alfredo means eight in a row

In the pre-match presser, Mr Let’s Go stated that it would be “eleven against eleven” at Celtic Park.

Misunderstandings and a secret squirrel

As I had previously reported there was a scheduled sit down between the Director of Fantasy, Mr let’s Go and the Serious professional.

Only two weeks until there is a Rebellion

Two weeks tonight curtain will raise at Websters Theatre and once more it will be time for Rebellion.

John Delaney and the SFA

In the past few day supporters of the Republic of Ireland soccer team have enjoyed a historic result.

Financial Fair Play for Scottish clubs

I allowed myself a wry smile today when I read this BBC report today: “Birmingham City will be deducted nine points by the English Football League for breaching profitability and sustainability rules.” Of course, that could not happen in Planet Fitba...

Mr Neil Cameron of the Herald

The most recent edition of NUJ’s in-house magazine, “The Journalist”, carried a short news item concerning myself.

Straight talking Stewart breaks the broadcasting rules about Sevco

As regular readers will be aware I have an ongoing interest in any outbreak of journalistic scrutiny on Planet Fitba.

Celebrating Irishness in the land where Saint Patrick was born

For the day that was in it the optics of a steward at Dens Park stating that the national flag of Ireland was verboten was not great.

Baby Doctor, a Hyundai i10 and the Corner Back of Seoul

The little one just made the bus in time. We hadn’t seen her in Dún na nGall since here GP placement in January.

Gerrard the movie

In the film industry the actors who command the highest fees those who can “open a movie”.

The toxicity business

Firstly, praise where it is due. Mr Steven George Gerrard MBE may not be renowned in literary circles for his ability to deploy a polemical flourish, but with one word he proved that he gets it about Ibrox.

A marquee signing that summer is coming

I was heartened to read that Mr Let’s Go had today uttered a word that means that summer is on the way.

Big Mike would really like his money

I’m afraid that the recent reportage of the ongoing situation between General Ashley and the basket of assets rather missed the point.
