Re: Rangers v Celtic

Who would have thought before a ball was kicked this season that Rangers would be 16 points ahead of Celtic at this stage (all be it Celtic have played three games less) of the season. Rangers have played 21 games and Celtic 18 but the table doesn't lie, Rangers are there on merit as they have been ...

Re: Rangers v Celtic

This crazy 2020 season is about to get crazier. No spectators at Celtic Park for the upcoming clash due to Covid 19 restrictions and pubs closed until at least 25th October! So for once all the mayhem will be taking place away from the stadium. Think that the authorities will be extremely nervous ab...

Sam Draper (Essendon)

Really glad to hear that young Sam Draper finally makes his debut for Essendon tomorrow evening v Brisbane Lions. He has been touted to do well and no doubt his debut would have come sooner if it was not for suffering a ruptured ACL in May. I remember Sam as a teenager playing 'proper football' (soc...

Read with interest about people's opinions regarding the Coronavirus outbreak and what should happen if the plug is pulled and the season is prematurely ended.
