Surely we’re not going to start bringing Independence politics into this?
I’m a firm unionist but not fussy as to the politics of our national manager.
It’s results that count.
A unionist is just as much a Scot as any independence supporter!!
You believe it's a region, not a nation, THAT'S what counts.
No financial regulation, no corporate governance, no enlarged divisions, no summer football, no single ruling body, no new cash, no integrity. Behold the 'bright new dawn' for Scottish football,

Utter balls. Politics has zero to do with it unless your one of these folk who has a chip on your shoulder about it. As long as the manager gives 100% and gets results that’s all that matters. Personally think MacLeish the wrong appointment but not because heis a unionist. On this arguments basis Fergie at his peak wouldn’t have been good enough. Utter nonsense

Who cares? I wanted independence but I’m not going to damn McLeish because he has a difference of opinion. Good luck to the man
Im damning McLeish after the c*nt ditched us when on a high last time around. How he and Smith could still be considered suitable for the Scotland job really does beggar belief. Akin to battered women who keep taking their violent fella back.
If you're committed enough, you can make any story work. I once told a woman I was Kevin Costner, and it worked because I believed it.

Great result for Wigan and Jay.

On another note here is an interesting article from David Weatherston.

Pretty harsh. Thought it was a decent insight to some of the things that footballers deal with that us fans don’t take in to consideration.

MASSIVE opportunity for JR, getting a huge club at exactly the right time.

He dodged a bullet, in Ipswich, & looks to have landed a club that he COULD take to the Premier League, within 2/3 years, should he nail it.

If he can get them rolling, with promotion the season coming, it would give him a season down South to assess players in the divisions around him & form a team capable of challenging for a place in the top division.

Just wondering what you meant by dodging a bullet reference to Ipswich - a Championship club with a good record of giving their managers a chance to build up successful teams. Sunderland may be a bit bigger but if he doesn't get them straight back up next season he will be out.

Ominous, as seems those who go to the Pars in recent years do pretty well against us.
Also saw that Aird is off to Dundee United

Peter Grant gone to Plymouth. Best of luck to the guy, but he was never the same player following his knee injury.

Paul Watson to Dundee Utd on a 2 year deal :shock: thought he'd be off to team like Ayr or Raith.
