Lots of speculation over the weekend that we’ll see Craig Gordon in goal for Scotland and Fraser Forster in for England tomorrow night. I’m claiming the two of them as ‘ours’. Big Fraser was a great Celtic goalkeeper and professional. He deserves one last curtain call on the pitch that made him.
I see Dick Advocaat completed his work with Serbia in less than half a season after their home defeat by Denmark on Friday and is now available for employment elsewhere. The Serbs have carried some hurt after Denmark made-off with Euro 92, when one of Europe’s great teams were denied their stage by civil war. The Danes were famously on the beach after being eliminated from the qualifying rounds by Yugoslavia before war in the Balkans opened the door for them to compete in, and win the tournament.
The last thing Serbian football fans deserved was to have Advocaat lead them. The Dutchman left us with so many great memories.
Do you have Craig Whyte holed up in a safe house, as the formerly advertised Motherwell-born billionaire remains at large after a warrant was issued for his arrest on Friday? If not, he’s perhaps gone feral and living in an outbuilding.
Check your shed, look behind the bins. It might be an idea to leave some food out for him. He may be disguised, there is no guarantee he’ll be wearing his Celtic scarf and Burton’s apparel, so stay alert.
