  1. I cannot see the one-leg format lasting once the Covid-19 restrictions are over and fans can attend matches again, Stu. Both Equity and Money will align to demand the return to Home and Away legs and the third pillar, the Fans, will demand that this be done too ... who wants to miss out on a Euro match ?
  2. SPL (SPFL1), Sunday 16/08/2020 : Livingston 0-0 Rangers Two points dropped by Rangers from a display described on Sportsound as 'toothless'. This is hard for me to judge without having seen the game. I just hope we are not embarking on a repeat of the second half of last Season ! SPL matches, 15-16 & 20/08/2020 : Saturday 15th August Celtic v Aberdeen - Postponed, Covid-19 Hamilton Academical 0-1 St Mirren Hibernian 0-0 Motherwell Kilmarnock 1-2 St Johnstone Ross County 1-2 Dundee United Sunday 16th August Livingston 0-0 Rangers Thursday 20th August St Joh
  3. 16/08/2020 : Season 2020-2021 Euro matches (Home teams only). Fixtures and results from the UEFA website, formatting, mine. I will update all the scores in this post. Europa League 2020-2021 Preliminary Round Thu 20/08/2020 Coleraine 1-0 La Fiorita (SMR) Glentoran 1-0 HB Torshavn (FRO) NSI Runavik (FRO) 5-1 Barry Town St Joseph's (Gib) 1-2 B36 Torshavn (FRO) Sat 22/08/2020 Lincoln Red Imps (Gib) v Prishtina (Kos) : 24/08/2020 - Match Abandoned per UEFA. Tue 25/08/2020 Riteriai aka Trakai (LTU) 3-2 Derry City Wed 26/08/2020 Progres Niederkorn (Lux) 3-0 Zeta Go
  4. 15/08/2020 : That is not how I see it Dimitri, the postponements were/are justified and there is more to follow. Celtic, Aberdeen & players charged over alleged Covid-19 breaches Link : https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/53783017
  5. 14/08/2020 : This farce at Heart of Midlothian's training ground (Hull City can train there but Hearts cannot), is a result of decisions made by the Scottish football authorities. Whether 'corrupt' or not, their reputation for incompetence remains undimmed. Link : https://www.skysports.com/football/news/11790/12048720/coronavirus-hull-train-in-edinburgh-after-hearts-are-told-to-stop
  6. SPL (SPFL1), Sunday 16/08/2020 : Livingston v Rangers, KO 16:30 hours, SKY. 13/08/2020 : It is back to Livingston's plastic pitch for Rangers on Sunday. Let us trust that our winning start continues, despite what is underfoot. No RTV for this game for us in UK/ROI. SPL matches, 15-16 & 20/08/2020 : Saturday 15th August Celtic v Aberdeen - Postponed, Covid-19 Hamilton Academical 15:00 St Mirren Hibernian 17:30 Motherwell - SKY Kilmarnock 15:00 St Johnstone Ross County 15:00 Dundee United Sunday 16th August Livingston 16:30 Rangers - SKY Thursday 20th A
  7. SPL (SPFL1), Wednesday 12/08/2020 : Rangers 3-0 St Johnstone Another comfortable win, that puts Rangers top of the SPL. The goals came from Barisic (superb free kick), Kent and in the 2nd half, Aribo. However, there was still a lot of the back and sideways passing, although this time away from our box. SG in his post-match interview was not happy about this dithering play either. SPL matches, 11-12/08/2020 : Tuesday 11th August Dundee United 0-1 Hibernian Wednesday 12th August Aberdeen v Hamilton Academical - Postponed, Covid-19 Motherwell 2-2 Livingston Rangers 3-0
  8. 11/08/2020 : Celtic's Boli Bolingoli - another footballer with his brains in his boots. Due to his selfishness and stupidity he has caused the cancellation of Celtic's matches this week. Aberdeen's matches are cancelled too, following their players' breach of the Covid-19 guidelines last week. If there are any more such infringements then the entire 2020-2021 Season could be stopped, details in the link below.

  9. Good question, I thought it was and have just rechecked and confirmed it, Saturday, October 17th, 2020 (for the avoidance of doubt). All three lower divisions start on that date.
  10. 10/08/2020 : Scottish League Cup, Season 2020-2021. I will log the scores for the League Cup from the 4th Round (first knock-out stage) in November. That is when the teams with European involvement, Rangers, Celtic, Aberdeen and Motherwell, all join this competition. Scottish League Cup group stage draw, matches are scheduled to start on Tuesday, October 6th. Group A - Heart of Midlothian, Inverness Caledonian Thistle, Cowdenbeath, Raith Rovers, East Fife Group B - Hibernian, Dundee, Forfar Athletic, Brora Rangers, Cove Rangers Group C - St Johnstone, Dundee United, Pete
  11. SPL (SPFL1), Wednesday 12/08/2020 : Rangers v St Johnstone, KO 19:45 hours, RTV. 09/08/2020 : A full programme of SPL matches this midweek with our game live on RTV, per Rangers' website : Watch from anywhere in the world (Including the UK/ROI) as Rangers take on St Johnstone at Ibrox. SPL matches, 11-12/08/2020 : Tuesday 11th August Dundee United 18:00 Hibernian - SKY Wednesday 12th August Aberdeen 19:45 Hamilton Academical - Postponed, Covid-19 Motherwell 19:45 Livingston Rangers 19:45 St Johnstone - RTV Ross County 19:45 Kilmarnock St Mirren 18:00 Celtic - P
  12. SPL (SPFL1), Sunday 09/08/2020 : Rangers 3-0 St Mirren A comfortable enough win today, thanks to a 1st half OG and a 2nd half brace from Morelos. One thing that bothered me though was needless passing by our players around in and about our box ... it just gives chances to the opposition. I broke off from typing this for the post-match analysis, which was followed by SG's post-match interview ... 'let's be less cute around our box'. SPL matches, 08-09/08/2020 : Saturday 8th August Hamilton Academical 0-1 Ross County Livingston 1-4 Hibernian Motherwell 0-1 Dundee United
  13. 09/08/2020 : I will continue with these Euro matches so long as there is British involvement and (from 16/08/2020) through to their Finals in this post. 2019-2020 Season Euro matches (BT Sport) Home teams only, I will update all the scores in this post. Europa League : Round of 8 one-off matches, Home teams only. Mon 10th August : Manchester United 1-0 Copenhagen - AET Tue 11th August : Wolverhampton Wanderers 0-1 Sevilla Semi-finals - one-off matches. Sun 16th August : Sevilla 2-1 Manchester United Mon 17th August : Inter Milan 5-0 Shakhtar Donetsk Eur
  14. SPL (SPFL1), Sunday 09/08/2020 : Rangers v St Mirren, KO 15:00 hours. 08/08/2020 : I have purchased this game today from RTV, £9.99 the technology works tomorrow ! I will update all the SPL results after Rangers' game has finished. BTW, SSN are reporting today that Lille's interest in Alfredo Morelos has waned. Apparently they are now interested in signing Ghent striker Jonathan David instead.
  15. 07/08/2020 : It would help if AVFC gave the full picture, I had to goto SSN for this : Shakespeare left Watford, where he was number two to Nigel Pearson, last month before the Hornets were relegated. He will join John Terry and Richard O'Kelly, who remain assistant head coaches, in the Villa backroom staff. Link : https://www.skysports.com/football/news/12040/12044590/craig-shakespeare-appointed-aston-villa-assistant-head-coach
  16. 07/08/2020 : Eight Aberdeen players have been affected by Covid-19, full details in the link below. It seems it was all Rangers' fault, if the following is anything to go by ! All eight men were in an Aberdeen bar - linked to the city's Covid-19 spike - on Saturday after the loss to Rangers. Link : https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/53682640
  17. 06/08/2020 : 2019-2020 Thread Locked for now. I will re-open it in time for the 2019-2020 Scottish FA Cup Semi-Finals and Final, which will be played on these dates : Semi-Final 1 : October 31st Semi-Final 2 : November 1st Final : December 20th, 2020.
  18. SPL (SPFL1), Sunday 09/08/2020 : Rangers v St Mirren, KO 15:00 hours. 06/08/2020 : It will be interesting to if see Rangers' new recruits, Roofe and Itten, feature on Sunday ... and will we see Morelos too ? SPL matches, 08-09/08/2020 : Saturday 8th August Hamilton Academical 15:00 Ross County Livingston 15:00 Hibernian Motherwell 15:00 Dundee United St Johnstone 12:30 Aberdeen - Postponed - Covid-19 Sunday 9th August Kilmarnock 16:30 Celtic - SKY Rangers 15:00 St Mirren
  19. Europa League Round of 16, 2nd leg, Thursday 06/08/2020 : Bayer Leverkusen 1-0 Rangers (3-1) Agg 4-1 Rangers were outplayed by a better team tonight. Season 2019-2020 ends with a defeat, but not disgrace.
  20. ... The Party Line is being followed ! Actually as a colour scheme, Black and Green (OliveDrab for Celtic) go well together.
  21. 06/08/2020 : Per the Telegraph today the EPL will restore the 3 substitutes rule and have 1st team squads of 18 players in the 2020-2021 Season. Link : https://www.telegraph.co.uk/football/2020/08/06/premier-league-clubs-vote-against-adoption-five-substitutes
  22. 05/08/2020 : SSN were reporting yesterday that Chelsea were seeking to offload several players, but Tammy Abraham was not amongst those named. Link : https://www.skysports.com/football/news/11668/12042126/chelsea-open-to-offers-for-kepa-arrizabalaga-jorginho-antonio-rudiger-and-more
  23. A previously unknown quantity to me, Mark. I had a look at the video on SSN of him at Leeds, he looked to be a creator of goals as much as a scorer, so hopefully he will continue in that vein with Rangers. I trust SG's judgement in these recruitment policies.
  24. Thanks for the reminder, from the SFA website : The semi-final fixtures - Heart of Midlothian v Hibernian and Celtic v Aberdeen - will be played on the weekend of Saturday, 31 October and Sunday, 1 November with dates and kick-offs subject to live broadcast. The final, which was originally scheduled for Saturday, 9 May, will now be played on Sunday, 20 December. All three fixtures will be played at Hampden Park. The following changes to the cup competition rules were also agreed for the remaining fixtures in the competition: • Players who have previously played for another te
  25. What was done was done, Mark. The SPL was prevented from playing out Season 2019-2020 as the EPL did by the Scottish Government, so the SPFL followed the same policy as the EFL did from level 3 downwards - average points per game played per team. Rangers wanted the SPL Season to be completed and also proposed a 14:18:18 league restructure with no relegations, but the SPFL voted this down. Celtic were therefore awarded the title, which is fair enough by me as per the average points per game formula the SPFL adopted. Nevertheless although real, it must feel to be a somewhat pyrrhic title to
