It's the Scottish Football Association that is going to ban heading for kids aged under twelve - not the Scottish Government.

If it gets kids to learn how to skilfully move the ball up the pitch, keep it on the grass and not resort to aimless punts to hopeless target men then that's good. 

There have been quite a number of cases of former Scottish football players suffering from dementia in recent years and doctors strongly suspect frequent heading of the ball was responsible. So that's why it's under the spotlight here.

Good move. Sure look at what heading a rock hard frozen dirty Mitre Multiplex has done to me.  I don't know who I am.

Agreed.

I might do it myself.

I think people do. It may not interest everybody but that doesn’t mean itnwont be worthy of discussion for the next few weeks.

What is it with this forum and telling posters something isn’t worthy of discussion. It’s always happening.

I certainly do, as do many others. It is also very much in the relevant thread, so why read it?
Greed has won, big finance has won. Whatever small role elite clubs still play in the local communities from which they grew is dwarfed now by their position as global brands.

Genuine question - Not fishing here or anything. 
Well the obvious answer is yes as ideologically I am very much to the left of the Labour Party, but I strongly believe in uniting the left. As Brendan Behan said about Irish republicanism, the second notion is the split and that echoes the divisions on the left that must be healed. This is especially true in a two and a half party system.
Those on the left of the party are willing to embrace people to the right of me in the party in the hope of building a better society. It is interesting to remember that even the most left leaning of Labour MPs never personally attacked Blair when he and the liberals hijacked a socialist party for their own ends, but I think of it happens again, particularly with the likes of the  toxic Phillips, there should be a split. 
There is no point in becoming a watered down version of the Tories. Blair proved it and I don’t think it can succeed now. The global zeitgeist tells us that the centre won’t hold. Labour May be a ‘broad church’, but that doesn’t and shouldn’t include liberals.

RLB comes with with a clean record which is much harder to criticise or spin and with less experience to resurrect the past. I also Feel if elected she won’t lurch from disaster to disaster for the first two years which created much of the media coverage itself between 2015-2017.

Rebecca Long Bailey extends the list to six. Given that the consensus is that she is the closest to Corbyn, and the manner in which the leader is selected, she will undoubtedly be a proper challenger.

Even if she is part of the Corbyn machine, she carries little or none of the baggage he did so she won’t have to deal with that in the same way if elected.

Apparently the new LP leader will be announced on the 4th April.

Rayner launches her bid for Deputy Leadership today. I’m actually slightly surprised she isn’t going for the leadership.

Shocked

What does OBE stand for?   OFAH Bloopers in Episodes?

Only Bloopers Epidemic. 

Watch out for a future plothole and it turns out to be MBE instead.
