Brutalism and Basalt

The title of this post isn’t mine. The photo within this post isn’t mine.

So without further ado I would like to thank @ruralkeith for tweeting out this picture of his two recently purchased Mugs.

Netherdale, home to Gala Fairydean Rovers, and Easter Road, home to Hibernian.

Netherdale and Easter Road Mugs

It looks like it was an absolutely smashing day down Keith’s neck of the woods.

Thanks, Keith, for letting us use your picture. It’s much appreciated.

Home Sweet Home – Meadowbank

There’s no place like home

They may currently play at Ainslie Park but it ain’t their home. Meadowbank Stadium is Home.

It’s been called home to quite a lot of other organisations and events along the way. Two Commonwealth Games (1970 & 1986), Meadowbank Thistle until 1995, Rugby games, Concerts (I saw Radiohead there a while back), and of course Edinburgh City.

From the Hedge to the Band Stand – The Football Pink

The guys over at The Football Pink have today published an article written by @TheMarkGordon about us, Scottish Football Stadium Prints.

I had a very nice chat with the thoroughly lovely Mark last week regarding Scottish Football Stadium Prints. Among other things we discussed my process, my motivations, and Football Fans love of their home ground pies.

You can read the article by clicking this link. I hope you enjoy it.

And if you don’t already, I would highly recommend following @TheMarkGordon and of course @TheFootballPink

The HOME Ground Collection

Finding and celebrating the things that make Scottish Home Grounds Special

The mission of Scottish Football Stadium Prints is to find out directly from the fans what they think makes their home ground special. Hedges, Ship building cranes and the Highest floodlights in Scotland.

We take those thoughts and ideas and put them into a series of prints covering all 42 senior football clubs in Scotland. As much research and effort goes into producing out Berwick Rangers’ Print as into our vision for Celtic.

Home pulls together all our efforts and catalogues them into one book.

The Rock (No, not that one)

not the Nicholas Cage movie Either.

The Rock (or The YOUR Radio 103FM Stadium for sponsorship purposes) may not be the largest of Stadiums but goodness me is it in a pretty special location. With the Dumbarton Rock towering above it and the the River Leven, feeding into the world famous River Clyde, within a stones throw away makes for pretty epic surroundings.

Strategy and content provider for Tifo Football@AFHStewart, sent us in this picture of his recently purchased Dumbarton t-shirt.

Anyway, thanks Alex for sending in your picture.

Brechin Mug

You are never a mug for supporting Brechin

It’s been a tough season for Brechin Fans but it’s never a mugs game. We knew it’d be hard going. We are part time playing in a predominantly full time league. And the long term sustainability of the club has to come before staying in the Championship (that’s my tuppence worth anyway).

It’s been great so far visiting some new grounds. Even if the results haven’t gone our way.

Finally, Mugs are available and they looks pretty darn good. If I do say so myself.

Thanks to the happy customer for sending me this picture of their newly delivered mug.

7 years ago today

Mayhem in the Coo Shed

It’s been 7 years (was it really that long ago!?) since I experienced the greatest feeling I’ve ever had at the Glebe. Equalising, with just 12 minutes to play, against St Johnstone in the quarter final of the Scottish Cup.

I was stood down behind the goal where Rory McAllister prodded home the goal that would take us to a replay. And the place went MENTAL! Never felt anything like that at the Glebe before or since.

Being at Recreation Park, Alloa, to watch us win promotions was pretty special, and really hits the spot, but for pure emotion nothing will beat that goal.

And what a night out afterward!  Steamboats!

The bigger the better – Tannadice Park

This print is now available in a size that is nearly as big as the Floodlight above the Jerry Kerr Stand.  It’s massive.

And your Wife, Boyfriend, Girlfriend, Husband, whoever, would definitely love it if you bought it and put it up in the livingroom. Probably best to do it while they are out and surprise them when they return.

Look at it. It’s spectacular.

A Happy Gable Endie

Montrose fan @cd_smith15 sent us this picture of his Links Park print. He actually bought two. One for his wall and another that he hopes to get signed by the Montrose players to then be auctioned off for Charity.

All the best with that and hopefully you raise a good deal of money for your chosen charity.
