Is Ryan Gauld Scotland's next star?
12:00 Thursday 5th December 2019

The modern age has done weird things to football. Heck, Robbie Savage is considered a competent pundit these days. Paying £10.00 for a pie and a soft drink at a stadium kiosk is seen as normal. Another bizarre product of the collision…

Can Hamilton's youngsters be their salvation?
12:00 Friday 29th November 2019

Hamilton sign Hamilton! That was the announcement on Twitter. Your typical unimaginative football joke. If you're in the dark, the post referred to Scottish Premier League strugglers Hamilton Academical tying down 17-year-old…

From Atlanta to Aberdeen, it's a mediocre match made in heaven
12:00 Tuesday 26th November 2019

Ah, the mighty cities of Atlanta and Aberdeen. They’ve a lot in common, haven’t they? They’ve both been referenced in Matt Groening cartoons, they both have names beginning with an A and now Atlanta United president Darren…

Can Roy Keane kickstart his career in Edinburgh?
13:00 Saturday 9th November 2019

There’s a black cloud flying over Edinburgh. With both of the city’s top-flight clubs having dispensed with their respective managers, speculation is raging on who could take either hot seat. One name bandied about in conjunction…

Can Steve Clarke revive Scotland's fortunes?
12:01 Tuesday 22nd October 2019

Heedless of the rain falling in relentless sheets over the stadium, the midfielder steps up for the free-kick. The ball curls neatly into the top corner. The 6-0 rout is complete. Despite a dominant display, no one is particularly…

Can Kevin Harper inspire greater diversity in Scottish football?
17:01 Wednesday 16th October 2019

Step inside Cliftonhill stadium and you’ll be met with an anachronism. This is the home of Albion Rovers, one of the SPFL’s lowest-ranked clubs. While the tiny ground sits less than ten miles from Celtic Park, it might as well be…

Has the Well hit the motherlode with Seedorf?
12:01 Monday 23rd September 2019

Sometimes the apple falls far from the tree. When Motherwell acquired a Surinamese/Dutch winger by the name of Seedorf more than a few eyebrows rose. But this wasn’t former AC Milan legend Clarence emerging from retirement to grace…

Can Cove Rangers be the heroes Scottish football needs?
20:58 Thursday 19th September 2019

Scottish football isn't doing well. The national team is languishing and the domestic game is faring no better. Crowds are shrinking, sponsorship is drying up and the FA seem at a loss to energise the country’s footballing…

How far can Scottish teams go in the Women's Champions League?
12:00 Wednesday 11th September 2019

When it comes to European football, the Saltire isn’t the exclusive property of the Old Firm. Glasgow City and Hibernian LFC will also be carrying the Scottish flag onto the continental stage as they do battle in the Champions League…

How far can the Scottish clubs go in Europe?
17:02 Tuesday 3rd September 2019

For the second season on the run, Scotland will be represented in the Europa League group stage by the Old Firm. The disastrous campaigns of yore, including a couple of infamous slipups in such footballing strongholds as Gibraltar and…

2019/20 SPL Preview
19:00 Friday 2nd August 2019

The general perception is that Scots are frugal in the extreme. Jerry Maguire is not among their all-time list of favourite films. They will not show you the money. In truth, Scots are like any other large group. Some may be so tight-fisted…

What will become of Daniel Sturridge?
09:00 Tuesday 18th June 2019

Daniel Sturridge’s downward spiral hit another low two weeks ago as Liverpool announced he will be released at June’s end. The English striker must now search for a new club to begin the process of rebuilding what was once a promising…

How will Rangers spend their summer?
12:00 Friday 14th June 2019

Throughout Scottish football history, the domestic scene has largely been dominated by Glasgow sides Rangers and Celtic. For years, the pair would take turns in winning the division while every other side just watched on in awe... That…

Can Phil Neville find redemption with the Lionesses in France?
08:00 Sunday 9th June 2019

Gareth Southgate’s Russian redemption was a joy to watch. Since 1996 when his feebly struck penalty was saved by a grateful Andres Kopke, until around the time Eric Dier sent England through against Colombia, the Three Lions boss had…

Will China, Japan make the World Cup an Asian affair?
09:00 Saturday 8th June 2019

Female football has come a long way in Asia since China hosted the inaugural edition of the FIFA Women’s World Cup [then referred to as the FIFA Women’s World Championship] in 1991. The China women’s football team, in…
