Life is inherently risky. There is only one big risk you should avoid at all costs, and that is the risk of doing nothing.

Sage words and they have clearly been taken on board by many of today's football bosses.

Phil Brown has decided to take a chance by applying for every job going, meaning his aim of making Partick Thistle the third force of Scottish football may be on hold.

Jimmy Calderwood is like the kid in school who put their hand up to answer to every question, while shouting 'me, me me' just to let you know he's there.

Everyone knows when John Brown is in the building and he's not a happy man. Assistant referee Andrew McWilliam is in his sights for failing to spot Gary Mackay-Steven had ran the ball out of play.

Hibs may be through to the Scottish Cup semi-finals but there was only one real talking point from the clash at Rugby Park.
