    8th when he came in last year, and 8th now on leaving... Media friendly? Must interview well.

    Diego Maradona

    Garrincha had the unnatural advantage, for dribbling, of one leg being longer (or should that be shorter?) than the other....

    Diego Maradona

    I particularly liked him being declared a National Treasure in 1961 to prevent him playing abroad, and being the cause of a couple of days ceasefire in the Nigerian Civil War, whilst everyone watched him in a Santos exhibition game... Back to Maradona....

    Diego Maradona

    The complete forward and a 3x World Cup winner. His Wiki entry is ridiculous, in a good way, but back to Maradona....

    Diego Maradona

    A sublime talent, but a rock’n roll lifestyle. Let’s face it, he was never going to live to a grand old age.

    FCM recruiting unpaid video scouts

    No different really to ‘actual scout’ scouts. Not all of them are paid. Sat next to Andy Scott once at Wycombe, and he confirmed he was between jobs at the time. He was still there though, keeping his notes and records up to date.

    Is Scottish football now completely discredited?

    I think it’s a mixture of celebration and relief. First Jocks to get to a Finals in 22 years. The monkeys can be put back in Edinburgh Zoo, etc. Some decent Scots players never made it since the last century. Comparisons with their last (fleeting) appearance await...

    Is Scottish football now completely discredited?

    Analysis on ITV last night. Marshall’s starting point is just behind the goal line, so even if he goes a fraction early, there’s a chance he’s not gone forward. Quite clever really. He also said he’d studied Mitrovic’s penalties. Always (!) goes central or to keeper’s left. Chose correctly last...

    I think if you appoint Clough, you have to take the whole package (Him + Brother + Asst. Mngr [can’t think of his name]). This must’ve limited jobs available to them in the past...
