Preparing to face the Old Firm
I was really looking forward to sitting down and watching the Champions League on Tuesday night but what game would I be watching?
Inter Milan v Manchester United, Lyon v Barcelona and Arsenal v Roma were all mouth-watering fixtures.
As it turned out I spent the majority of the night watching for goalflashes from Shielfield Park, Berwick.
I was hoping to travel with the squad to watch the game but a 5.00pm appointment with the physio quickly put that to bed.
I sent a couple of good-luck messages to the manager and Kevin Neilson reminding them of the two defeats we had already suffered at the hands of Berwick this season.
We were hoping for the three points and confident of getting them after a good win on Saturday against Forfar.
I spoke with the chairman at half-time and after falling behind he was certainly happy to be level at that point.
Although I'm not too sure how the second-half went, I'm sure he will appreciate the point we gained from the first of what are three difficult away fixtures.
Up next comes the short trip to Albion Rovers on Saturday followed by the longer journey to play Forfar for the second time in 10 days.
I've got my fingers crossed that I'll make the bus for that one - hopefully as a player and not a fan.
I couldn't complete my column this week without mentioning the recent headlines in the press regarding the possibility of Celtic joining us in the Third Division.
Some tabloids have even reported that it could happen as early as next season.
I must admit to being delighted to see that David Longmuir, SFL chief executive, commented so quickly.
It's easy for people to automatically believe the news that they read in the press, and I'm sure the reports would have both worried and excited people in equal measure.
Although it appears that only Celtic have been mentioned so far, the Old Firm often do things together and I fully expect Rangers to be involved in any talks.
But would it stop there?
Who's to say that Aberdeen, Hearts, Hibernian and the rest of the SPL clubs wouldn't want a piece of this too?
I read comments from the chairmen of each Third Division club and like our very own, Henry McClelland; they all seemed to take to the idea.
I do think it would be great for the Third Division, no question.
The potential for bigger crowds and greater income would be there and it would be great for the players to come up against a higher standard of footballer a few times a season.
Maybe it's because I can't see myself playing for many more seasons and I won't be involved if this move happens, but I can't help thinking about the non-league clubs with ambitions to join the senior ranks.
We've already had Cove Rangers voicing their displeasure at the speculation.
In the current financial climate we all have to be very careful and it has been well documented that there are clubs, like Stranraer, who are in trouble.
I sincerely hope they survive, but if not, will Cove be allowed to try again or will Celtic be allowed to simply step in?
I'm sure there are a lot of thoughts and opinions out there on the subject so I'm looking forward to reading and replying to the comments I'll hopefully be getting over the coming days.
