An offering from a “paranoid lunatic”

Pretty much any time referees become a hot topic in Scottish football, the second film I did gets a mention and I get some new torrents of abuse and support.

Uncle Francey

Why is it Celtic means so much to you? We all have our own stories and here’s mine.

24 hours in the world of fake football

I’ve had the guts ripped out of me in the last couple of weeks so excuse me whilst I spill the last remnants of them all over this page.

Memoir out now-£8

My new memoir is out now. Just £8, you can get a further 15% off at the checkout by using the code ONEFIVE.It’s the story of the three books that became films and all the nonsense in between...

Sweet FA

It’s great when club football comes back, right? If, like me, international weeks bore you, it’s magical when the club games appear on the coupon once again.

The Unsung Hero

A word or two about Nir Bitton. Yesterday at Ibrox proved, once again, what a class act he is.

When history was made

Tuesday night was probably the most surreal game I’ve seen at Celtic Park since the Partizan Belgrade game 30 years ago.

The best things in life are free

As the dust settles on another big sale from the club, minds turn to tonight, Cluj and European progress.

Throwing the book at you

I’ve written (counting my new one) 14 books. Of those 14 books, three sold a lot more than other ones did that’s for sure.

The Front of The Bus-A Memoir

Well, I finally finished it. The book that was derailed by, first, mental health issues, and then a tsunami of hate that John Beaton kicked off on December 29th, is finally out my system.

The Cup

Diminishing the importance of the Scottish Cup is like, for me, saying lunch isn’t that important.

Football, Bloody Hell.

Whilst I am not a huge fan of the “Champions” League, the two games last week were absolutely incredible spectacles.

Bradley John Welsh

I remember Jackie Stewart talking about George Harrison and saying “I was close to him and had a great relationship with him-but I bet another hundred people could say the same” That thought crossed my mind when I read the outpouring of grief as news filtered through of the passing of Brad Welsh.To say I was stunned is an underestimate.

Do fans have a shelf life?

It was only yesterday evening that I became aware of another incident of stuff being thrown at a player, this time at Fir Park on Sunday.

Can you ever forgive me?

Richard Pryor once said “Forget about Racism, it’s hard enough just being a person” Like you, and everyone else apart from the stewards and police, I saw the bottle of Buckfast thrown at Scott Sinclair on Saturday.

Brendan Rodgers

Tuesday was among the strangest days of my life. I got wind something was happening with the manager on Monday night and had conformation when I got up early on Tuesday morning that he was gone but still I was in a state of disbelief.

There’s only one Jim Traynor

Like a bad penny arcade, Jim Traynor appeared from nowhere last week (fresh from Level 5 disappearing) to launch a tirade against the BBC, Referees and pretty much anyone who attacks the Sevco support...

Domestic Bliss

I’ve done a lot of thinking about Celtic since last Thursday’s game against Valencia.

The Hype

As focus changes from defence of The SFA to destruction of The SFA because, finally, two Sevco players were punished this season, it’s important to keep wading through the lake of lies...

It’s deja vu all over again

As Yoga Berra once said “” A year ago, I went for a few pints in Leith, blissfully unaware of the dark forces working against me.

Why a memoir? Well, it’s not to make money that’s for sure.
