St Mirren, St Johnstone etc. Hopefully Dundee's new stadium will have a bit more character.

Who did you play for?

posted on 18/11/19

Got to experience El Classico with Messi and Ronaldo at their peaks. Not a great atmosphere at The Nou Camp though. Would rather go to Celtic v Rangers (Can someone get me a ticket please?)

posted on 18/11/19

Went to see Lossiemouth one time, only time I’ve ever seen a linesman turn round and argue with a guy in the crowd, called him a fool - it was probably the highlight of the match. Gone to Abbey Park to see Kilwinning a few times, a bar in the ground? Yes please!! Apart from that, all the usual suspects Scotland wise. Like Dunfermline for an away day because the rake in the stand is so steep.

A few teams at youth level. Stoke probably being the best at the time before my injuries ruined my career. Played at Eastligh Town, Winchester City, Northwich Victoria as well.

Went to Swansea v Villa on a pre season friendly yonks ago at the old Vetch.

We had a tiny defender called Alan Wright who tried a shot from outside the box that ended up heading to row Z.

My mate shouted "Useless bastirt" during the quietest moment of the whole game.

All the nearby players and most of the crowd looked up and Wright hollers back "Shut it you fat cwnt"

Everyone in stitches and to be fair to my mate just put up an apologetic hand.

When I was at Dunfermline on the opening day of the season I had an unconscious guy at my feet for most of the first half as he fell down the steps and landed on his head. Right by my feet so had to be treated there as they couldn't move him. Not as steep as Tynecastle though. Or the Mestalla which I've been to but not for a match.

It has become more and more apparent recently that I really have quite a remarkable ability to remember incredible amounts of completely useless inconsequential football related trivia.

Alan Wright nearly joined Rangers;

'JUST five days after walking out of Rangers’ pre-season tour of Germany, full-back Alan Wright has joined Middlesbrough at their training camp in Spain.
Wright was released by Aston Villa at the end of last season and was offered a trial with Rangers. He quit their training camp in Germany early, citing family reasons'

I remember that.

Despite being only 5'4" he was a quite decent player at the back.
