I'm a Rangers supporter who infiltrated Antifa. In my mind they don't play nearly enough football. You'll never work out my true identity.

Anyone know anything about Mickaël Buscher? Played for Gretna before they went pop. On trial and playing for our reserves this afternoon.

So, I checked the Prem table today, only to be met with this at the bottom of the table (on the BBC).
BBC Sport

* Note that table splits in half for the last five games of season, after which no team from the top six can drop into the bottom six, and no bottom six team can climb into the top six, irrespective of points earned.
My brain is congested with Saturday boozes, but what in the blazes is that all about!?
My apple pies go off today.

It's been like that for a good few years now. I guess with 12 clubs you would otherwise play everyone 3 times for a total of 33 games or 4 for a total of 44. Of course it results in a whole load of entirely meaningless games; the bigger clubs playing each other more often and the smaller clubs getting fewer chances of the big pay day against the old firm.

You are a moderately successful striker who has played at a high level throughout his career but now finds himself down a couple of leagues to allow him to be part-time and start up a new business outwith the game. Your team, with 3 games to go, is 2 points clear at the top of the league but has just lost its top scorer for those last 3 games with a broken ankle. Do you:

(a) Fire the team to the league title in the top scorer's absence and bask in the glory with your team mates, management and fans or

(b) Fuck off from the club at this most crucial part of the season as you want to pursue a "different direction" in life?

Gary Wales of the Rovers.

I still don't know why he's done it, but I'm fucking fuming right now.

How many weeks of the season left? Two? Three? Surely he could've waited.

Who did he play for in the top league?

Hearts and Kilmarnock so he was a bit better than those around him this season. And he's shown that.

My Killie-supporting pal at work wondered if he needed his highlights done...

Wow, that's an amazing table: 7 points between 1 and 2, 8 between 2 and 3, 9 between 3 and 10th. Well done anyway. It's a shame the second doesn't get promoted.

Cheers all. I had a wee greet at full time and a nice sing-song between the ground, Mount Florida and Central Station.

The First Division looks tasty next season. Falkirk I presume will come down, Thistle, Dundeh, The Pars, Morton, QOS, County, us, mibbe Ayr if they get thru the play offs. Proper fitba clubs and grounds. And Livingston...

Good crowds, good atmospheres, even though it'll be a million pounds each week to get in.

I fucking love Stevie Hislop - he's the middle one of the 3, inc the keeper, jumping about!

Anyone fancy joining an Anorak minileague for The Predictor?

I somehow ended up 40th last time I did it, despite knowing bugger all about football.

40th out of everyone, ever? That's good.

I'm up for it. Not too keen on predicting scores but I'll give it a go.

40th for that season. I was very impressed since I was going on uneducated hunches at best. Bloody Richard Gordon was top overall though.

Anyway...

There is now an imaginatively titled Anorak minileague you can search for. Password is thefitba
