    . [img]smileys/thumb-up.gif[/img] Agreed. I'm half way through it and I'd highly recommend it. Not just just his opinions and obs on what happened in his career but his approach to coaching and management is very interesting.
    All right Mister, let me tell you what winning means - you\'re willing to go harder, work longer and give more than anyone else - Vince Lombardi

      The 'New Years Honour list' is drawn up by the UKgovernment. Mind seeing as GB is a scot it's probably a fix anyway.





      Ah yeah I know the list is compiled by Her Majesty's Government but the award is presented by QE2 and entitles the recipient to use a title of The British Empire by royal decree.

      Agree regarding good old Gordie looking after his own.[img]smileys/smile.gif[/img]

        Just to nitpick if that's the case then it's QE giving it, there never was a QE1 of Scotland previous to the current one.
        Did you play in the Garden of Eden?
        Were the goalkeeper\'s gloves to you tossed?
        For it seems to me you\'re the reason,
        You\'re the reason why paradise lost.
