    Did anyone see this? DB23 nailed a ref in the head with a pinpoint pass out of frustration. A little unprofessional, but pretty awesome.

    Rumor is LAG has made an offer to Lampard, who set with Beckham in Wednesday's match.

    Yeah I saw it, which is why I said a one-match ban is a let-off.

    It should have been more but it's Beckham, the cash cow of MLS.

    What have I always believed? That, on the whole, and by and large, if a person lived properly, not according to what any priests said, but according to what seemed decent and honest inside, then it would, at the end, more or less, turn out ok.

    Don't know about Lampard to Galaxy. Meireles, Mikel, MacEachran, Benayoun, Ramires, Hazard, Marin, Romeu can all do what he does in one capacity or another, but I'd like him to stay as a rested-in-some-games deep-lying mid like Scholes. Provided he accepts this role, which he should.

    Good shot by Beckham. His facial hair makes him look like some kinda old West gentlemen gun-slinger.

And that's without working out what percentage is away fans not traveling.

    There's a difference between being full, and having every ticket sold.Clubs pull the trick of including season ticket seats in attendance figures even if there's nobody actually on the seat.

    Hence why Scottish football needs to be rewritten so the Old Firm forever lose their grip on the game forever. Making a more competitive league where more than two clubs win it would be great for the game, but not great for the Old Firm.

This is what has scared Newco, Celtic, the SPL, the SFA, Scottish Labour and the media; they've seen a massive fan backlash where fans would rather see their clubs and the game die in Scotland than bend over for Newco. Thats a powerful message that's been sent out.

    If money is shared equally then we'll see just how good Lennon is as a coach, and I don't think Celtic want to face that, but the cosy arrangement the Old Firm had is gone now.

    It might happen. A Celtic fan I know has told me he has full confidence in his team's ability to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory.

    In any other league he'd be facing a three match ban and a huge fine at least. As said, a let off.

    I think Lennon's a dreadful manager (he'd make a good coach) and had Oldco not collapsed last season, Celtic wouldn't have got near the SPL title, while clubs like Motherwell, Dundee United and Aberdeen might not have the same share of money as Celtic, but they've got better managers so it's going to be interesting to see what happens and whether Celtic do implode.

    Also, a mate last night told me about David Moyes press conference where he was asked how he felt about getting 20 odd million quid worth of strikers from Oldco for 5 million quid, and Moyes saying through a gritted smirk about the 'tragedy of Rangers'. He's got their two best players for 5 million quid! That's the bargain of the century.

    Either way, it doesn't look like the clubs I mentioned are struggling to fill their stadiums.

    Scotland's governing bodies have until Friday to agree a package that will persuade Scottish Football League clubs to allow Rangers into Division One.
    This is revealed in the resolution, obtained by BBC Scotland, on which they will vote as they consider the new Rangers' application for membership.
    Good God man! Why are you slapping a monkey.
