I inadvertently stirred up a wee bit of a storm in my post this morning by suggesting that Aberdeen FC might lay claim to be the third biggest football club in Scotland.
Correspondents Jimmy Jehosophat and Adullamite (whom, it has to be said has a vested interest) derided me and said that the Jam Tarts (aka Heart of Midlothian FC) were in fact the third “biggest” club.
I have checked some sources and found this site which does indeed list Hearts as third in points total behind the Old Firm. However when we seasonally adjust the fact that the Jams have been in existence since 1874 and the Dandies have only been around since 1903 then it would seem that Broon’s army have several games in hand!
I notice the Sons at number 20 which is pretty much what I expected.
