    I think you are right

    He was already in the SFA as some kind of youth dude capacity but the 19s have been added to his job

    An excellent player/coach and importantly person.

    In life you get the honour to do eulogies, I can still remember the one he gave to his best mate Tommy Burns.

    I was reading an article on BBC Sport about Swansea appointing Graham Potter from Ostersunds as their manager.
    I knew that ex-Hamilton boss Billy Reid was Potter's assistant manager at Ostersunds, but then another name on their coaching team caught my eye.
    Apparently the Swedish side had a recruitment analyst named Kyle Macaulay.
    I was vaguely aware of that name being the same as an ex-Dons player around the time of Steve Paterson's reign, and a hazy recollection that he might have been Paterson's nephew.
    Turns out this is the same guy who didn't really make much of an impression at Pittodrie, but seems to have forged a career elsewhere in the game.

    Leicester are leading the race to sign Norwich midfielder James Maddison, 21, with the Canaries likely to demand over 20m for the 21-year-old Englishman. (PA)

    Shame he was never on our books, good luck to him though.

    Thatcherite market forces min. Two generations on, it's the trading norm. Even "progressive" political parties' economic policies are governed by it and its premises.

    The mountains of non-money sloshing about inside fitba is the perfect microcosm of the reasons why we were ****ed over by international capitalism in 2008, but failed to drag it up a lanie and administer a firm, fatal shoeing when we had the chance.
