“Help!” is the promising subject of Simon McMahon’s email. “Only one show in town in Scotland today, Rob, and it’s at Tannadice where Scottish Championship leaders and renowned big-game bottlers Dundee United play Raith Rovers, a point behind United but with a game in hand. Failure to win today would see the destination of the title move outwith United’s own hands for the first time this season, with only a handful of games left to play. And they’ve only themselves to blame. Inconsistent home form, an inability to settle on a best XI from a manager who has been consistently tactically outmanoeuvred by others with far fewer resources, loss of form / confidence at key moments, one point from nine against their only rivals for the title.

“Yet for all that we[hang on, weren’t they ‘they’ a minute ago – ed.] should still be miles clear. But we’re not, and another season in the Championship could be a live possibility at 5pm. Or we could be favourites again. For the last three months, both United and Raith have appeared to be actively trying not to win this league. But one of them will, and we should be a lot nearer to knowing who at full time today. As you can probably tell, I’m all over the place. Like United’s defence recently. That it’s come to this. Football, eh..? It’s not the despair... etc etc”

Talking of Scotland, because it’s all one place, the title of the new Arab Strap album is giving me untold joy. (NB: link contains emojis, and adult language)
