    Great player. Talks a good game. Terrible manager.

    New structure coming for the Eredivisie

    Apart from dropping 2 teams, I don't see what's different.... The Dutch league already has playoffs for UEFA places and relegation. As for suggestions of spreading out funds - the funds go to the biggest clubs because we draw the most supporters and TV audiences. We also need the funds to compete in European football at a higher level, increasing coefficients. Spreading our already scant TV deal more evenly might well improve the smaller clubs (and I'd be for that to an extent) but there's no way we should be bankrolling the likes of Motherwell or St Johnstone who can bring 5 figure crowds to Hamdpen for semi finals but struggle for more than a few thousand at a regular home game.

    https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/av/scotland/45778670 3:30 in... Motherwell thuggery still being tolerated by referees. Carl McHugh of Motherwell with a forearm smash on Declan Gallagher (the wee arse that was winding our players up at the end last week.......what a shame), splitting him open a belter. Despite the victim being a cretin, it was only a yellow card. Then in the next highlight there he made a bad tackle, studs up right over the top of the ball which he got a second yellow for. Another one that could easily have been a straight red.

    Ryder Cup

    They don't strike me as team players. Or perhaps it is the case that with a larger pool compared to GB&Ireland, Europe is too strong for the US. Maybe if they expand it to Europe v US/RoW or re-jig the format it could be more interesting.

    They paid £9m because he scored 2 goals against a defence of Tav, Martin, McCrorie and Halliday with Alnwick in goals, and one against Alves and Bates when they were down to 10.

    The guys a fantasist. From the old woman at the Dakota before every game to the Rangers fans in the Clyde Tunnel. “I’ve met Rangers supporters and, in the main, they have been very good. “I remember sitting in a bit of traffic in the Clyde Tunnel. There was an incident which meant all the cars were stopped. “I saw this guy coming out of his car in a blue top and I thought, ‘Here we go’. “But he said, ‘I just wanted to say thank you for coming up to Scottish football. I’m a Rangers supporter but you’re a breath of fresh air up here’. “So I thought, ‘Right, get me out of this tunnel quick!’ No, it’s been great. “But the biggest is probably an old lady Patsy, who is in her 70s. She stands outside our hotel for every game we play whether it’s raining, whether it’s snowing, covered up with Celtic gear. She wears her Brendan hat, her Brendan scarf. Her son came up to me not so long ago and said ‘Thank you so much, you’ve given her a new lease of life’. That makes me as happy as picking up a trophy.

    They started playing when they went back to their 1 up front shape (65 mins, when he took Edouard off). TTS has got a dilemma between keeping the system that works for them and pissing off either one of his best striker or their £9m ex PSG club record signing striker, or changing to something that doesn't work for them to give them both a first team place.

    Hah Beaton had a yellow card out ready to book him and he kept going, changed it to a red. Embarassing night again all round for them. They're struggling big time and better teams are going to do them like Killie did, hopefully starting with dolly on Saturday.

    Dunno about that but they do mute mics to avoid offending listeners.

    Ryder Cup

    Right enough. Point stands though.

    Ryder Cup

    Probably the right pick with his experience and at home he's going to get the crowds going, as he always does although it's possibly one of the most diversely European Ryder Cups ever - with it being held in France with a Swedish captain it will be interesting to see how up for it the crowds are. You have to go back to when Seve was captain and more than half the team was European to see something similar in the makeup of the team but it wasn't the same electric atmosphere back then.

    And 120 minutes at full pelt in the bag for both. Just a shame that sheep are away at Celtc. Hibs have St Mirren away, not an easy game for them.
