Quote of the day

SFA Chief executive Gordon Smith on the cost of tickets for the Scotland v Argentina game tonight:
"The highest price is £35... which is for the best seats."
"It's a lot less than the Take That concert tickets and the stadium will be full for that over two nights next year."
Did he just compare the lure of seeing possibly one of the world's greatest footballers manage his country for the first time with four has-been 1990s boy band singers (who, granted, make some excellent music)?

I mean, one is overweight, unfit and forty-something, and can't sing or dance...

Ha ha - very witty!

I couldn't find an email address for you so apologies for the following having a complete lack of relevance to the this post but I thought it might interest you. I've just received this link (via the work-distracting medium of Facebook) from one of my US friends

It speaks for itself really...

The real question is how Argentina could appoint a crazy maverick like Maradona when America won't even vote for John McCain. I tell you, we're living in a world of fools. Once a drug-taking cheater, always a drug-taking etc. Everything changes but you eh Diego?

But he's obviously a popular choice with the Argentinian fans. After years of beautiful football but no tangible results, could it be magic now?

His tumultuous first weeks in charge suggest its a hell of a gamble. If the legend doesn't emulate his World Cup success we'll soon find out how deep is their love.

PJ - very good. I've been saying similar for weeks. Not so much that is why he got elected - there are plenty reasons - but that the media made it a one horse race.

Sam - economic genius and Take That lyricist. Is there no end to your talent?
