The Scottish Cup Final riot 1980. Scenes of mayhem engulfed Hampden as Rangers lost to bitter rivals Celtic, in a 1-0 Scottish Cup final defeat that ended in scenes described by the legendary Archie MacPherson in his own unique way " This is like a scene now out of Apocalypse Now...We've got the equivalent of Passchendaele and that says nothing for Scottish football. At the end of the day, let's not kid ourselves. These supporters hate each other".

Raymond Colin Wilkins 14th September 1956 -4th April 2018.Yesterday the football world lost an absolute Legend and Gentleman as Ray ' Butch ' Wilkins sadly passed away. The one man I could watch all day on TV as his knowledge of football was second to none. One of a limited few pundits I'd never mute the TV for.

The statistics make ugly reading for Eddie Jones and England rugby fans. Three Six Nations defeats in a row for the first time since 2006, a first defeat at Twickenham since October 2015 and England’s lowest ever Six Nations finish. It would be fair to state that Jones has a few questions to answer ahead of this summer’s tour to South Africa and next year’s World Cup.

An Ode to Alan Hudson on ZANI

Written by
Walked on Water and Glided on Grass

A football genius of balance and grace,
Self-styled icon and playmaking ace.
Midfield Guvnor with a talent so rare,
Would light up a match with his guile and flair.

1978 FIFA World Cup TM on ZANI

Written by
The 11th staging of the World Cup TM was held in Argentina in 1978. The competition logo was based on the signature gesture of former President Juan Peron i.e., a salute to the crowd with both arms extended above his head. The design was had been in 1974, two years prior to the military coup in 1976. And whilst they tried to change the competition's logo, the design was already broadly commercialized and merchandise had already been made. A forced modification would automatically trigger a litany of lawsuits. against the country, and so the government dropped their objections.
