He does come across as a bit of a dinosaur on Radio Scotland's "Off The Ball" programme, advertised as "the most petty and ill-informed football programme on radio". On air, though, he is slapped down adequately by his co-presenter, Stuart Cosgrove.

Whatever humour he was trying to convey in the article, he just hasn't got the ability to get away with it. Total unacceptable.

Besides which, women's football in Scotland is at least giving us a little bit of success to cheer at the moment.

Goodison Park once hosted a women's football match between St Helens' Ladies and the famous Dick Kerr's Ladies of Preston which attracted 54,000, with over 14,000 not able to get in.

And didn't it scare the football authorities?

There was a separate women's FA for a long time.  I think that was because the FA wouldn't sanction women's matches.  Whether they had any moral objection or just couldn't be bothered I'm not sure.

 

Excellent results for the British women's teams in the Champions League yesterday, including Glasgow City taking a 2-2 draw in Belgium.

 

Big fan of Glasgow City.  Good to see some British clubs at least not be dependent on a men's set-up.

Indeed, women were banned from playing on all the FA's affiliated grounds for over 50 years.

The lame excuse was men considered women's football a health hazard for the ladies. Furthermore, the women's game was gaining in popularity, much to the annoyance of those charged with running the sport. 

 

Women's football first took off in the late 19th century, only to be ridiculed. With women shedding the apron strings to help in the war effort, as well as many men on active service, it briefly took off again. Dick Kerr's Ladies actually toured France and North America. The FA at the time were not amused and sent out a strong message to the football authorities in Canada and the US not to play matches against them. Canada didn't offer as much as a cordial welcome, although the US did play three matches against Dick Kerr's Ladies. There was a shock in store though as all the US players were men. The ladies did put up a good show, winning one match, drawing another while losing one. That was that though and women's football then declined somewhat.

No, some girl in the 70's who joined a lads team. Bless her, she was trying to play football.

My lad's girlfriend's daughter is the only girl playing in an under-elevens for boys, and quite good. One guy on Saturday shouted out to his son "Yer playing like a girl". On pointing out that Courtney was playing well, he looked rather sheepish.  ;)

Yes, City have been successful. I thought they might have been in trouble when you-know-who set up women's sides but they seem to have survived reasonably well.

Aye.  Their biggest rivals - and it's relative - seems to be Hibs.

 

There must be some audience for soccer in Glasgow that doesn't want to be connected to the gruesome twosome.

40 years ago nearly, England needed to beat Poland to ensure qualification, just 3 days short of that historic date, we have the same opportunity to screw up, without Brian Clough calling the goalkeeper a clown.

Can we make it to RIO de JANEIRO?

I remember that game. Keeper Jan Tomaceski (sp?) played the proverbial blinder.

Gillingham doing what football does best, wins them League two title, struggle this term then they sack Martin Allen. I pray Bradford have some sense and keep Parkinson for a long time.

I reckon it would will more likely that he left them.

Surprised he hasn't already gone.  This season in League 1 must be helping his credentials a bit but time is surely running out before a Championship club comes knocking,
