Taking on the auld enemy?
By some strange synchronicity, only six days after I wrote in Sons View about what a good idea it would be to revive the Home Internationals, or at least Scotland versus England, the BBC announces: "Scottish Football Association chief executive Gordon Smith will look to resurrect a fixture against England should both miss out on Euro 2008. It would be great to have it, even if it was on a biannual basis," he said. "It's something that we would look at." Of course, the premiss is not a very encouraging one. England versus Wales next year, thank you. Then we can talk.
