Re: Rangers v Celtic

Ranges Vs Celtic game will decide the title, at Ibrox - how exciting! With all respect, I don't think so. Celtic have won both league games v Rangers this season yet trail them by two points. Celtic will drop more points as they are not firing up front and are always prone to leak soft goals. Range...

Proposed Blue Cards

IFAB will surely go one step to far if they are to officially bring the 'Blue card' to the table and introduce it to the professional game. This would prove a huge own goal for the game in my opinion. How many stoppages already and yet they are trying to introduce a system that will swallow up a hug...

Re: EPL 23/24

Serious question. Why was Maupay's goal not disallowed for offside against Ivan Toney? When Flekken kicked the ball, Toney was at least five yards off, runs back and blocks the defender who would normally have just headed it away. How is that not interfering in play? Serious answer- Yes, Toney did ...

Re: Rangers v Celtic

Very brief opinion before the game today at Celtic Park: Rangers are the form team in Scotland at the moment and new boss Clement has instilled confidence and belief in his players. They seem a more solid unit and though they are hardly unbeatable, my team may find them a hard nut to crack. Though C...

Well done Killie. Great result for Kilmarnock and a bad one for Rangers. Must say I am not a fan of Kilmarnock's playing surface but their famed pies make up for it. ;-) Knocked off Celtic last weekend too. Yes, and from all reports it was fully deserved. Well done Killie(from a Celtic man).
