* Hot on the heels of Jonathan Meades' televised tour of such Scottish 'football coupons' towns & the recent associated blog post, today saw the occurrence of the most romantic & glamorous fixture in that country's Irn Bru League Division Two programme &, quite possibly, all of British soccer, at least to those of us of the particular disposition that intrinsically favours the obscure, small town & small time over the bloated, branded, absurd monstrosities of the game's higher echelons (essentially football that knows its proper 'back page' place, as mere distraction, in the order of things cultural): Stenhousemuir versus Cowdenbeath, names of such fabulous, alternative grandeur (almost as an afterthought, the result was a 2-0 victory for the visitors, the mighty 'Blue Brazil').
