Following his humiliation in Glenrothes, Alex “the spiv“ like all true charlatans is bouncing back, not for nothing is he called the “the Scottish Jeffrey Archer” his latest scam will once again fool the sheep who follow him blindly. This time he wants to pick a fight with Westminster over the possibility of picking a British Olympic Football Team. Not content with disgracing Scottish people by excluding all Olympic athletes from his congratulations and only congratulating Scots. Athletes he now wants to humiliate us again, he is prepared to use anybody and anything to keep his profile high, and the rest of us can cringe in his shadow.

How can anyone object to a British Football Team? we already have an all British Olympic Team, and Scots. have shone in it along with everyone else, this is playground politics from ‘the spiv’ any reason to pick a fight with the “Engurlish” and he is right there. Let’s face it, when it comes to International football Scotland, as my old Da. would have said “couldnae beat Casey’s drum” that is a fact but it’s nothing to be ashamed of when you look at Brazil, Italy, Argentina and of course “Engurland” this might even provide Scots. with a chance to cheer on a team in the latter stages of a major competition with Scottish players in it, wouldn’t that be a brilliant novelty ?

Consider this, we would have 3 years and more to produce a player or two good enough to get in the team, what an incentive. A Jimmy Johnstone or a Willie Henderson or a Billy Bremner would make it worthwhile and taking part with our friends and neighbours from Wales, N.Ireland and Engurland would make for a great party, let’s go for it.

I've just watched the children in need contribution from BA Robertson & Co. about Scotland and it's Football Team and I am defiantly unrepentent I am still a fan, not even that can put me off.

Simple, because it will lead to a Brittish football team in ALL competitions. No more Scotland (or for that matter Welsh, Northern Irish or English) national team(s). Do your research on Sepp Blatter, and you'll see what i mean.

That doesn’t bother me at all, International football for the smaller nations is a farce anyway.

We already have eligibility rules on who can play for which country which render the whole thing nonsense.

There are only about half a dozen countries who can win international trophies, that’s not good enough competition.

By the same logic, the smaller clubs in Scotland should conglomerate in order to challenge Celtic and Rangers. In 10 seasons, they're the only two clubs to have won the Scottish Premier League, and only one other club, Hearts, have finished in the top two - but just the once...

Celtic and Rangers will not realize their true potential until they move to the English league.
They should do so immediately and Scottish football should then reduce the number of teams drastically.

Scotland, Wales and N. Ireland will go on pointlessly entering competitions which they will never win and more often than not be embarrassed in. That’s not sport, that’s masochism.
