  • OPINION: J’accuse!

  • OPINION: Positive first impressions

    OPINION: Expectation. A good or bad thing?

    Expectation! A good or bad thing? Personally, not so sure. It’s not something us Scunny fans have become accustomed to for the best part of our Iron supporting years, is it? More

  • OPINION: Humble Pie

    I doubted the players and the management would have time to turn things around and we would finish outside the play-offs. I asked them to prove me wrong and they did.

  • OPINION: Five steps to securing victory at Rotherham on Wednesday

    We’ve all been before, haven’t we? For the ninth successive time since our first appearance in the play-offs way back in 1988, Scunthorpe United have failed to win our 1st leg in a play-off semi-final.

    Last season, at the zenith of our goal-scoring prowess, before the post-Christmas fall, if I had whispered the words, “Murray Wallace at left-back” softly into your ear on the terrace, you’d have turned to me in disgust and told me to fornicate hence. Though I say this today, and it is an accepted reality. Yes, our Murray, perhaps the best centre-back currently plying his trade in League One, […] More

    The Downward Spiral Of Scunthorpe United

    If you talk to older fans – you know the ones I mean – those who were regulars in the re-election days of the 70s when crowds were barely 1,700 at the OSG, what will so many of them tell you? More specifically, what will they tell you about the contrast between then and now? […] More
