Now , First Things first … I AM NOT a usual UK Flag Waver . Me Politics and Religion generally preclude it , but that don’t mean I’m not proud of where I come from . I am . I always was .  To be honest , whether I like it or not – and I don’t , I’m getting to be an O-G .. Cool as I am – and I AM   btw .Nevertheless , shit has changed since I was a Kid . Like , a LOT .  In the last few days , with us having a once in a lifetime opportunity of a GB Home Olympics , we have  Bellends  Casing Becky Adlington – I see You Gobs***e Boyle , and now today , this odious worm on Twitter to Tom Daley .

Yesterday , I heard a debate on the radio upon the fact that 700,000 Olympic football tournament Tickets remain unsold , or were as of  July 18 , 2012. This has subsequently given me pause for thought on the matter .

See ..???  Here we are , Mid-July , the Kids broke up yesterday . For most of us in the current economic climate it genuinely IS a Grind . Moreover , Season Tickets are expensive and the Season starts in a month . Then there’s a the Summer events , Cricket ; I myself usually attend at least One Home Test Match a year , The Open , Many travel to spectate , and of course the Olympics themselves .

Upon initiating the idea of a Website with My Partner , THT , first our previous incarnation and then as of yesterday , this one , we agreed that we wanted various catergories of stuff . One of the ones I felt most adamant about was the Football Icons catergory .  Of the ones completed to date , Bill Shankly and Jock Stein are among the most memorable to me , personally . They are of course both Scots . Indeed , were friends . To that list we could easily add Sir Matt Busby , The HS , Denis Law ,  Sir Alex Ferguson amongst others . Most of them had either consecutive or concurrent careers . This would suggest the strength of Football in Scotland at all levels . It was truly a land of plenty . Juxtapose this with the contemporary situation in Football North Of The Border and it would be a very stony heart , or that of the most rabid English Patriot , to not feel even a semblance of pity .
