Hapoel threat has merit, fabrications don’t make SFA report


Hapoel Beer-Shiva delivered Olympiakos first defeat in a Champions League qualifying match in six years. The Greeks have competed in the group stage every season since, holding their own throughout the period, so getting knocked out by Hapoel was the equivalent of losing a Scottish Cup semi-final to a lower-league club.

Hapoel are not better than Olympiakos, not nearly so, but they were good enough to progress when they got the breaks. Anyone who thinks we’ll easy past them into the group stage is being ridiculously complacent.

I’m trying to avoid the nonsense coming out of Ibrox while we have more important things going on, but good grief! Please, please, have them follow through on the nonsense of ditching their legally contracted Puma strips to wear something else.

That stadium seems to be a beacon attracting stupid people doing stupid things.

You’ll note the INDEPENDENT SFA report on crowd at the Scottish Cup final recorded no assaults whatsoever on Newco players. This clearly caused some dissonance at the media organisations who reported utter fabrications after the game.

Never mind, Newco is in the same good hands which were on the tiller when their disastrous EBT plan was enacted, and the players who benefited from EBTs are front and central of Newco media coverage.

If you can’t see how this story ends, you’re not looking.

    Smoke outside and play lingual bingo.



    You win if you hear a couple conversing in English as they pass.

    Anyone in any doubt about the help this mob will get from the officials this season, only has to watch the first hour of this match. Annoying thing is Andy Walker has called everyone of the dubious decisions correctly, but refuses to join the dots…

    Not to mention the succession of free kicks in dangerous areas.


    A draw would be nice.


    Don`t want to be greedy.

  6. What is the Stars on

    Going to a bit controversial here


    Most would disagree with the “scottish football needs rangers” argument..



    However I think there is some merit in that line of thinking..



    Today they have at times made Hamilton look like Real Madrid… surely thats good for scottish football

  17. Saint Stivs says SACK THE BOARD on

    2nd rangers 1 hamilton 1.



    the media saying “shock result” ignoring completely how the 2nd-ers form in competative matches was at the end of last season.



    i will say it again, every club in the prmier league will take points off them.



    no proffesional player can look at that squad and feel inferior.



    well done the hoops
