Home Of The Brave Shows Home Of The Banter How It’s Done

Evan McFarlane highlights the digi-social promotional techniques Scottish football can adopt from MLS. Can the SPFL call upon a cast of footballing characters, club volunteers and unique match day experiences in a more effective way, influenced by the American approach? There are a lot of positive things happening on the digital side of Scottish Football…

Morton Managerial Finnish Provokes Questions About Club’s Future

Perhaps I’m biased, but for my money there isn’t a better professional football league in the world than the Scottish Championship. This season especially has had more twists, turns and backstabbing than a typical series of Line of Duty and it’s showing no signs of slowing down. Falkirk FC are of course the undisputed World Heavyweight Champion of patter this season, of that there is no doubt, but every Rock needs their Austin. Step forward, Greenock Morton.

What the hell is going on at Hearts?

A divided support, a closed section and a cup final ahead. What’s all the fuss about in Gorgie? ‘League won in September’, cup final in May and a 20,000 seater stadium nearing capacity every other week – you’d be forgiven for thinking that Hearts fans are happy about their season so far. Following another predictable…

Sectarianism in Scottish Football: It’s time to make a stand

Nobody likes talking about it. It’s a horrible issue, one I even try to avoid on Twitter altogether because it opens up a can of worms you’ll struggle to close for quite a while after. Sometimes though, it’s hard not to want to speak up. Steve Clarke did so this week, but the points he…

Scores Out Of Ten For Steven Gerrard Lighting Up Scottish Football

The winter break is over! Wipe the sleep from your eyes, knock the remnants of a James Tavernier flung snowball from your hair, briefly register the shock of Auchinleck Talbot’s giant killing triumph in the cup and strap in for the return of the Scottish Premiership.

One of the stories of the season has been the appointment of Steven Gerrard as Rangers manager. Ahead of tonight’s Kilmarnock versus Rangers clash (with added Jordan Jones flavoured spice ) two Pure Fitbaw writers had a quick WhatsApp conversation rating Gerrard’s time at Ibrox so far.

Steve Clarke Needs To Decide If Kilmarnock Are No Longer The People For Want-Away Rebel Jordan Jones

On Saturday the 5 of January Jordan Jones, Kilmarnock’s influential left-winger, signed a pre-contract for Rangers which will lead to him playing for the Ibrox club from the start of the 2019/20 season. This deal, taking Jones to Ibrox in the summer along with Dundee’s Glen Kamara, has left a sour taste in the mouth of Kilmarnock fans who have grown to love Jones’ performances in the stripes. Over the past two and a half years Jones has rebuilt his career at Kilmarnock after being released by Middlesbrough following a troubled spell at the Teesside club. However, his social media posts celebrating sealing the Rangers deal have added fuel onto the fire. Many Killie fans are annoyed that Jones seems to be thinking ahead to the summer and may lack the motivation to put in good performances for his current club.
