Real football

Good 'ol Motherwell... last day of the season, losing 1-0 at home to Celtic with 2 minutes to go, Celtic are on course to win the league. Two minutes and two Scott McDonald goals later, we've won the game and handed the title to Rangers.

It's a pity either of those teams and their glory-hunting followers had to win again this year (particularly the one managed by Alex McLeish, whose mis-management broke up the best team Motherwell ever had in recent times, and then did much the same at Hibernian), but it doesn't half feel good to have screwed it up for one of them :) With a bit of luck, maybe some of the droves who flock from here over to Scotland every week to watch Celtic and sing their sectarianism-inducing songs will finally realise that they'd be much better off diverting all that disposable income towards their local teams in Ireland instead, and then we'd all be happy.
