Review of Scottish staff frees Apr21 DB

Post by Here2Win79 »

Inspired by Derm's quote that there were 10k staff to be pruned from the DB I took a look at those out of work in Scotland. Like Mrs Thatcher in her pomp, I have dismissed many from the breadlines and consigned them to the abyss

Have also focussed on likes / dislikes as we all know that feeling when an unlikley managerial appointment happens, like when David Moyes takes over Liverpool, or Rafa Benitez... wait a minute. Anyway, it's a bit more tribal up here and there are very few players from one side of the divide likely to pop up as coaches on the other side, so their likes / dislikes are important.
