    Betfred Cup 2018/19 Dates

    Spartans and Edinburgh City - always like to see us playing teams we haven't played or have rarely played before, like Annan and Brora last season

    Eintracht Frankfurt

    Personally I'm a bit fed up with the EPL. I enjoy watching the games from the Bundesliga on BT sport much more. Far more competitive, far more attacking and way, way less diving.

    Incomings and outgoings.

    Armstrong will be chased by a good few teams in the championship I would think. Might end up back at Blackburn.

    Eintracht Frankfurt

    I would be hugely excited about seeing the German Cup winners play at Rugby Park. Much more interesting than another English team.

    Would you rather

    I was quite happy to see Livingston and Alloa winning. If a team finishes second bottom they should get relegated. Play-offs should be for the teams who finish towards the top of a league. I'd even prefer to see the old system of straight up and down as that is the fairest way to measure a league season but I can see the excitement that the play offs bring and it also reduces meaningless games during the season as well.

    12 best goalkeepers in Scotland right now

    Tavernier is good coming forward but the stats for him that would make more interesting reading us the number of goals Sevco have conceded down his side of the pitch. He frequently gets caught out of position and he is poor tackler. A decent wing back but not a full back to be played in a flat back four. There are very few Sevco players I would take over a Killie player at the moment - probably the fewest in the past 50 years. You mentioned Dorrans - there is no doubt he has been a good player but at Sevco he has been largely ineffective because of injury and poor form. Murphy, Candeias and McCrorie are about the only other three but none have been consistently good this season. Arfield might prove to be what they need in the middle of the park to stop getting hammered by Celtic.

    SPFL relegation / play offs

    If Livi go up then it's on merit. If a style of football works for the resources that a team has available to them then fair play to them for using it effectively. Hopkin has proved himself to be a very astute manager.

    So true. Irony is lost on them. They have absolutely no sense of self awareness

    Incomings and outgoings.

    His debut in the 2-0 win at Celtic I think.

    Europa League Final.

    Didn't remember the PSG victory at all. For a country that has won the World Cup and the Euros their record at club level is very poor.

    He's only 19. He has plenty of time before he needs to think about leaving.

    Europa League Final.

    An absolute stroll for athletico. Incredible that in 2018 the only European trophy ever won by a French team was the one that Marseille bribed their way to in the 90s.

    Incomings and outgoings.

    Indeed. When Robertson was 19 he was playing for Queens Park.

    Incomings and outgoings.

    Still very young and looks to be very happy where he is as he has just signed a long term deal. He is a fan playing and winning trophies for his team - isn't that what most youngsters dream about? There will be offers for him in the future, if they allowed the same person to win young player and player of the year I'm sure he would have won both. Best young player to emerge in Scotland for a very long time.

    Still a chance of Europe?

    That's pretty much it. The SFA have had to be dragged kicking and screaming to even investigate the matter, they just wanted to sweep it under the carpet. The fact is that Rangers, as they were then called, should never have been awarded a licence for that season, that is an undisputable fact. Either the SFA knews the facts and chose to ignore them or the previous incarnation of Sevco were more than economical with the truth. The court case showed that the tax bill was not 'in dispute' but in fact had been conceded and was outstanding. Compensation should be due to those clubs who suffered as a result of this incompetence / dishonesty (and I know which these I think was far more likely)
