Is it just an attempt to try and raise their own journalistic profile by writing insults that they know will offend a large number of people or do they really have these awful opinions about women’s football?

Lets face it… A lot of people would not have heard of Tam Cowan before today’s article that suggested the stadium in which Scotland women’s National Team played their World Cup qualifier should be burnt in order to cleanse it…

IF I had my way, today’s Premiership fixture between Motherwell and Ross County would have been cancelled.

That’s because Fir Park should have been torched on Thursday in order to cleanse the stadium after it played host to women’s football.

There has been many of these articles ‘popping’ up which do little than hurl abuse at the women’s game and those that participate

(although Tam Cowan says he) is not having a pop at the people taking part. Just the other week, I bumped into a couple of women footballers (I’ve still got the bruises to prove it) and they were honestly two of the nicest blokes I’ve ever met.

A lot of these are written by journalists that do not actually follow the sport and the lack of knowledge is embarrassing.

So here is the today’s article:

IF I had my way, today’s Premiership fixture between Motherwell and Ross County would have been cancelled.

That’s because Fir Park should have been torched on Thursday in order to cleanse the stadium after it played host to women’s football.

Why do they still persevere with this turgid spectacle? And why was it allowed anywhere near Motherwell’s hallowed turf?

Admittedly, I’ve not seen a lot of women’s football – just a few little snatches – and I’m not having a pop at the people taking part.

Just the other week, I bumped into a couple of women footballers (I’ve still got the bruises to prove it) and they were honestly two of the nicest blokes I’ve ever met.

But no amount of politically correct claptrap could force me to say I enjoyed a single second of that guff at Fir Park on Thursday night.

And those of you who disagree must be telling porkies.

Quite frankly – and at the risk of getting a slap from my old pal – I found it about as aesthetically pleasing as Joan Burnie’s full frontal pic in yesterday’s paper.

BBC Alba must be scraping the bottom of the barrel if they’re now broadcasting this tosh live.

Aye, give me an hour of some dreary Highlander reciting poems about the fishing industry – in Gaelic – any day of the week. Incredibly, the game was live on telly AND radio!

I can only imagine they were looking for the pundits to swell the crowd (if “crowd” isn’t too strong a word).

I initially assumed it was a closed-doors game. I haven’t seen Fir Park so quiet since Harri Kampman was in the dugout.

If women’s football is so good, where the hell are all the supporters? Surely even the most fervent fans must agree it’s time to chuck it?

Face it, folks, nobody cares about women’s football. There was barely a thousand inside the ground, shocking for an international in ANY sport, and I guess putting the girlies head-to-head with Emmerdale and Eastenders was a bit daft.

For anyone remotely interested, Scotland won 7-0 and Bosnia-Herzegovina were utterly dire.

I honestly think they’d struggle to take three or four goals off St Mirren.

This was a Group 4 game and the Bosnian team looked as if they’d just arrived in one of their vans.

Did you see their goalie? She put the baws into Bosnia (although on the off-chance she reads this, I hasten to add I’m only kidding).

Editor’s note: Folks, we would like to point out Tam is a professional funnyman and what he has to say should be taken with a large pinch of salt. Also, his views are not necessarily those of the Daily Record as a whole. If you wish to complain, his email address is tam.cowan@dailyrecord.co.uk

    It’s probably a Freudian acte manqué, Gina. It’s because Eugénie Le Sommer won’t play today, so you don’t want to think about this game and be sad ;o))

    The main thing is your article, and it strikes well :o)
