Just had an interesting football conversation with a long time Celtic supporter
at 09:15 16 Nov 2020

And one time amateur footballer who played to an reasonable level (including against Charlie Christie, Ryan's dad). Insightful perspective on Paul Lambert's time in Glasgow before he went off to be a European champion...

Lambert was not the most popular squad member it seems, which probably comes as no surprise, but as an attacking midfielder was seen as very effective. But what really succeeded was his partnership with Neil Lennon, because Lennon covered for him. Lambert made mistakes and Lennon didn't. This rings a bell with me concerning assistant managers too.

Someone who had to sort out a big mess left by their predecessor warns on Brexit
at 10:06 10 Nov 2020

No, not Joe Biden...or Paul Lambert. John Major is saying that 'Brexit set to be more brutal than anyone expected'

Not my side of the political spectrum, and I do not always find what he says helpful, but you have to admit that he has been at the helm and knows what is involved in British and International political affairs.So this quote is especially sobering:

'Because of our bombast, our blustering, our threats and our inflexibility - our trade will be less profitable, our Treasury poorer, our jobs fewer, and our future less prosperous'.

The team has not won a match for a very long time,
at 09:06 27 Oct 2020

something that has helped them achieve cult status...Most in the town have no interest whatsoever in their football team...The disparity of wealth in the league could not be greater. The top teams buy players for transfer fees up to £40,000 while FWFC players receive a £20 match fee and a likely loss by a similar number of goals. There is a win bonus, but in recent years it is not something the club have ever needed to pay, perhaps mercifully for their meagre accounts. Average match attendance, at one of the rainiest but most scenic grounds in the country, is 60-70 people. This occasionally includes the odd football fanatic who has travelled hundreds of miles to see 'the worst team in Britain'

Also a bit sweary in places, actually really fecking sweary at times. And actually a quite good documentary about grass roots semi-professional football:

Emmanuel-Thomas started as one of a front two for Livingston yesterday
at 13:16 26 Oct 2020

They lost to Rangers , he missed an open goal.

I think the commentator gave an exasperated sigh after using his JET (and those are the three letters on the back of his shirt) nickname as he watched him lumbering forward to get there too late to join in an attack. But he did last until the eighty fifth minute before he was substituted, Jermaine Defoe only managed sixty five...and scored the second Rangers goal on sixteen.
