Champions League quarters spring no surprises.

Panyee FC

Inspirational video about a football team in Thailand. Although it also serves as a bank commercial it seemingly tells the truth about the team. Wouldn’t like a nail or skelf up those barefeet and sliding tackles would be out of the question, . Thankfully their pitch is astro-turfed now

Strachan starts against Estonia

 In 2014 football will truly return home and Scotland has about as much chance as the Vatican City of making it. An awful start to the qualifying campaign sees us languishing at the bottom of Group A, 2 points from 4 games and 8 points of the pace. It has been a hideous start and […]

Strachan is favourite to succeed Levein

Ina glowing testament to how popular the Scotland job is, every possible candidate is without a job after being punted in the last year.

Diego Maradona in his own words

On the doubters and nay sayers;

“To those who did not believe: now suck my d**k – I’m sorry ladies for my words – and keep on sucking it. I am either white or black. I will never be grey in my life. You treated me as you did. Now keep on sucking d**ks. I am grateful to my players and to the Argentinian people. I thank no one but them. The rest, keep on sucking d**ks.”

On Scotland ;

“It was nice to get my first goal here in Scotland and it was very special. I feel great. I’m very happy to be back here after all this time and I’m proud to be heading the Argentina national side.
“I’m very much aware of how popular I apparently am in Scotland. It’s nice to see that I have made people happy and if I could do it again then it would be marvellous.
