Comment on Tangled Up In Blue by Stephen O’Donnell (Book Review) by Ballyargus.

    Although he is oft maligned on here I think JJ has something to say today. It's a pity that in our wee best nation nothing of this story is printed.

    Is anyone who reads on here the least bit surprised that no-one in the MSM has asked the Michael Stewart question? 

    I think they'll keep him for a year and then try and punt him to the English Championship and hope to get their money back and the buyer will pick up the rest of the payment owed. In other words a glorified loan deal.

    Does anyone know if the headlined book,"Tangled Up In Blue", will be released in ebook format?

    Sport and Football in particular has always been sponsored by unworthy companies.  We've had cigarettes, drinks and gambling all as sponsors. The people responsible for bring in advertising revenue need to try harder to interest less controversial companies in their product.

    Looking at the videos of the crush outside Rugby Park there at least 6 police officers on horses that seem to be just moving about on the peripheral of the small crowd. I seem to remember that they used to separate a crowd into orderly lines for entry into the turnstiles thus avoiding any crushing. I wonder why they didn't here and why there does not seem to be any blame attached to the police.

    It appears to me that Bordersdon was specifically referring to the weekend and not some past even, "Anent the crowd behaviour at Rugby Park at the weekend…".

    Everybody has a past and all sorts of unsavoury happenings whether for football clubs or individuals could be found and quoted.
    My point being than when the Rangers are mentioned doing wrong Celtic has to be brought into the equation with the 2 cheeks quotes. If anyone has a criticism of Celtic and /or their supporters, and many of them are no angels, then criticise them by all means but don't tag them onto someone else's bad behaviour.

    Here we go again with the two cheeks. You sound just like the media, if Rangers have to be condemned for something Celtic have to be brought in to even things up. If you have something to say about Celtic and it's supporters then say what you mean. Don't use the two cheeks as it has no relevance here. Celtic supporters, including the Green Brigade, did not break down gates to illegally enter a Football Stadium nor did they enter the field of play, and certainly did not jump on a roof covering and endanger lives.
    So if you have a point to make re the GB then state it plain and simple and I'm sure many (including Celtic supporters) will agree with at least some of your criticisms.

    I wonder if someone who is au fait with Twitter could ask McFadden what he meant. You never know he might reply with a sensible answer. Either way it would give us a clue to his integrity. As a well known blogger states,"For the avoidance of doubt," I don't do twitter.

    Just watched the entertaining women's game England v. USA.
    Thoroughly enjoyable.
    But, still not sure about VAR.

    I agree very entertaining. With regard to the penalty incidence, I think that if the ref has to take more than 30 to 45 seconds to reach a decision on VAR then the original call should stand.
