Scottish Cup: Hibs Hibs Hooray?

One year and one week on. Again we trudge to our buses, looking like the club shop has thrown up on us, ready to troop through to Hampden. Ready to watch Hibs wrestle with their Scottish Cup destiny...

SPL: Stuttering Hibs

Fifth in the league, a point better off after 26 games of this season than they were after the SPL had run it’s course last season. Hibs fans, punch drunk from their annus horribilis, heard promises in the summer of a rebuilt side capable of making progr...

Scottish football: Reinventing the wheel

12 + 12 + 18 = 8 + 8 + 8 + 18 = 36 + 36 + 36 + 34. With such simple equations are Scottish football resurrections secured. If the SPL is about to die, the dictators of the ancien regime are going to get their way before the peasants storm the castle. 1...

Rangers: Say no evil

Jim Traynor has spoken. We better all listen. His second blog as the supremo of communications at Ibrox – jolly decent it was of the Daily Record to give him his first Rangers blog as part of his valedictory message to their paying readers – hit every t...

SPL: Breaking bad?

The SPL’s winter leave of absence seems to have taken a few people by surprise. It is only a fortnight though and we’re not supposed to have a winter break as such, so they’ve maybe been trying to keep it quiet. There also seems a reasonable chance that...

Brought to book

Book Week Scotland seems as good an excuse as any to have a rummage through the bookshelves. To mark this celebration of all things book related, I shut my eyes and picked out four football tomes at random. And a varied assortment it proved to be. From...

Rangers: A hollow win

Whatever else it’s done, Rangers new life in Division Three hasn’t dented their ability to command column inches. This week it was the results of the First Tier Tribunal that dominated the media, old and new. The findings have been pored over...

Scottish football: Reconstruction rivals

“The battle lines were drawn months ago and the main players have been digging the trenches. ”But listen closely and you will hear the first volleys being fired as Scottish football edges closer, yet again, to civil war.” So spake the BBC’s Chris McLaug...

League Cup: History men?

Is the Scottish Communities League Cup moving inexorably towards a Celtic v Rangers clash. Celtic progressed to the semi final with a minimum of fuss last night, thumping St Johnstone 5-0 at home. Rangers need to make history to join them, becoming the...

SPL: Motherwell v Hibs

An acquaintance, for whom the glass is forever half empty, insisted to me last Sunday evening that Hibs would be in the bottom three of the SPL after the next three games. That is mathematically possible...

Barcelona v Celtic: An underdog’s life

Having finally cleared one long standing Champions League hurdle with their away win in Moscow, Celtic must topple giants this evening. Barcelona away is a fixture that makes most teams tremble...

Barcelona v Celtic: The magic men

Tomorrow night Celtic face the sternest test of the Champions League campaign with a trip to face Barcelona...

SPL: Dundee United v Aberdeen

According to the encyclopedic @SPLstats Saturday will be the 87th time Dundee United have hosted Aberdeen in a league game at Tannadice. In the previous 86 matches there have been 29 home wins, 28 away win and 29 draws. The insperable New Firm. They’ve...

Scotland: Strachan SOS?

An unusual consensus has settled over Scottish football. The disastrous start to the 2014 World Cup qualifying campaign has made minds up: Craig Levein can’t continue as Scotland manager. A few dissenting voices remain. Billy Dodds was one of them on...

Belgium v Scotland: Levein leaving?

Scotland’s road to Rio. A dismal football journey. We got about as far as the five year old who runs away from home and sits down under the whirligig on the back green to wait for the bus. The five year old might have shown more sophistication. It’s ha...

Wales v Scotland: On a mission

Rarely in his footballing life would Craig Levein have persuaded PG Wodehouse that he was wrong about Scotsmen and rays of sunshine. There’s nothing wrong with that. A thrawn prickliness might even be a good thing in a job where expectation so often fin...

Celebrating Scotland’s grassroots

Hard as it is I must drag myself away from talk of banners, share issues and possible Scotland starting XIs to talk about “real” football. Grassroots football in fact. A couple of weeks ago I was lucky enough to again attend the 9th Scottish FA Grassroo...

Homeless World Cup 2012: Samba beat

Day two of the second group stage of the Homeless World Cup ended in something of a struggle for Scotland’s reigning champions. Group D always looked tough and so it has proved. In their first game of the day against Ireland the Scots recovered from 2-1...

Say aye tae a football pie

Pies are close to my heart. So close in fact that I’ve fallen under the tyranny of healthy eating fascism to protect said heart. But all things in moderation...

Homeless World Cup 2012: Scotland in Mexico

Day four of the 2012 Homeless World Cup in Mexico yesterday and the tournament entered the second group stage. After mixed results in the opening group Scotland moved on to face Ireland, Brazil, Portugal, Ukraine and South Africa in the second phase. Wh...
