David Goodwillie eyes higher level amid tough moral questions

After bringing his goal tally for the season to 25 with a clinical finish in Tuesday night’s 3-0 win at Cowdenbeath, Clyde striker David Goodwillie admitted that he still harbours hopes of returning to a higher level of football. It is patently clear to anyone who has seen the Bully Wee this season that the former Dundee United, Blackburn Rovers, Aberdeen, Ross County and Plymouth Argyle forward is too good to be playing in Scotland’s 
fourth tier.

Interview: Craig Brown on glory days and World Cup woe v Costa Rica

Where are the men from Italia 90, the Scotland team in their summer-fun T-shirts, white with blue and yellow stripes? Quite a few of the personnel involved in the dismal World Cup defeat by Costa Rica seem to have emigrated from the homeland and others have been lying low this week, perhaps in anticipation of irritating calls from the likes of me as the national team prepare to embark on a new era with a re-match against the Central Americans. So thank goodness, then, for Craig Brown, who’s painting a garden fence in Troon when I catch up with him.

Tam Scobbie: I don’t want others to go through what Mitch did

When a group of footballers met up recently to talk about their mate Chris Mitchell, the question they were all asking themselves was whether there was more they could have done to identify warning signs and get him the help he had so obviously needed.
