Arsenal should sign up a load ay them Cologne supporters oan a permanent basis.


Might actually huv an atmosphere at thir games fur a change.

They put the Arsenal supporters to shame, Laird, even if half of them weren't supposed to be in the stadium!  ;)


Kick off wis delayed fur an hour cos ay "safety concerns".

Probably issuin' protective earplugs tae the Arsenal support cos they urnae used tae them kind ay noise levels.

Arses well & truly felt in the Champions League last night.

Thought we showed PSG too much respect n' didnae get stuck in enough.  Also we played too open a style n' shoulda jist gone ultra defensive.

Totally outclassed tho'

Only highlight fae a Celtic perspective wis Neymar gettin' booked fur divin'.

A phenomenally talented laddie, but a despicable, classless little pr1ck ay a human bein'.  A fact highlighted by his refusin' tae shake hands oan the final whistle.

Ah wouldnae shed any tears if somebody ended his career wi' a leg breakin' tackle.  (After he's smashed some goals past Anderlecht).

Books and other printed media / Memphis 68: The Tragedy of Southern Soul

New Stuart Cosgrove book noo available tae pre-order oan Amazon.  Follow up tae his Detroit 67 Motown/MC5 book - which wis a great read.





In the 1950s and 1960s, Memphis, Tennessee, was the launch pad of musical pioneers such as Aretha Franklin, Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, Al Green and Isaac Hayes, and by 1968 was a city synonymous with soul music. It was a deeply segregated city, ill at ease with the modern world and yet to adjust to the era of civil rights and racial integration. Stax Records offered an escape from the turmoil of the real world for many soul and blues musicians, with much of the music created there becoming the soundtrack to the civil rights movements.

The book opens with the death of the city’s most famous recording artist, Otis Redding, who died in a plane crash in the final days of 1967, and then follows the fortunes of Redding’s label, Stax/Volt Records, as its fortunes fall and rise again. But, as the tense year unfolds, the city dominates world headlines for the worst of reasons: the assassination of civil rights leader Martin Luther King.

Stuart Cosgrove, originally from Perth, was a fanzine writer on the northern soul scene before joining the black music paper Echoes, as a staff writer. He became media editor with the NME and a feature writer for a range of newspapers and magazines. In 2005 he was named Broadcaster of the Year in the Glenfiddich Spirit of Scotland Awards and in 2012 he won numerous awards including a BAFTA and Royal Television Society award for Channel 4’s coverage of the London Paralympics 2012. He is the author of Young Soul Rebels (Polygon, 2016).
