I wonder where Rangers would have finished if they could have afforded Shankland for £4m in January.
The amount of chances their forwards missed in the run in was pretty criminal.
You are, of course, assuming that Shankland would have hit the ground running in a new team. Not always the case.

Lammers was rubbish at Rangers but apparently has been excellent on loan.

Slightly biased Jambo but I think, looking at his options Stephen Kingsley would be a good option for Clarke in Germany
He can play left and right of a back three or wing back, good defense in the air, quick in attack and on his day very good at set pieces.

I wonder when the last time 2 goalies went into an international squad both from the same club? Can't be that common (if it happens)

We play football here with a slightly smaller and pointier rugby ball, a clock that winds down rather than up,
and helmets which are as much weapon as protection.

What's more, our ball still has actual laces as if it were 1900.

In American football, chronic traumatic encephalathy is the FORTUNATE result
in as much as paraplegia is always on the table.

I got caught up in watching it for a twenty year span because we had Tom Brady
who was incredible to watch,
but now I've forgotten about it since our team blows chunks.

Unfortunately, though, our Boston baseball team is horrific as well.

We have your kind of football too,
but it's not big time sports entertainment like the Premier League.
It's a popular youth and school game more than anything else.

See also Theo Bair. Totally rubbish, lost and looking out of his depth at StJ…then transferred and rattling them in for fun at Motherwell…well until it mattered and his pen was saved by the sensational Dimitar Mitov…

And on Mitov…without whom StJ would have been dead and buried in the play-off if not automatic relegation many moons ago. How the heck do we hold on to him. Hopefully the new owner has been sweet-talking him.

Scottish Cup final.
Let us hope that whoever wins does not go on the rampage in Glasgow once again.
Police/SPFL/Glasgow Council and common sense should dictate that they 'celebrate/wreck' their own back yards

Horrible game to watch, not a great advert for our game.

Celtic manage to grind out a win somehow. Another double so I’ll have a few celebratory beers tonight.
