Hello and welcome to the Football CFB website.
Let me start by stating that I am not a football journalist. My name is Callum McFadden and I am a regular football fan – just like you – with an incredible amount of passion for the beautiful game.
I have set up Football CFB which stands for Callum’s Football Blog with the sole aim of producing interesting articles about SPFL clubs and the goings on within the game across all levels that fans the length and breadth of the country can – hopefully – enjoy.
I will also aim to interview various footballing personalities – players, club officials, fans, pundits, journalists, etc – in the classic Q and A style to try and provide an insight into to the SPFL and football in general.
At times, I will also produce content linked to the EFL and the Premier League in England if I feel that it is relevant to the Scottish game i.e club finances and the need for sustainability.
Football CFB is led solely by myself with the aim of connecting with fans the length and breadth of the country through the medium of good football writing. Happy reading!
GAME OFF. Sadly today’s game has been postponed due to a waterlogged pitch. In the last few weeks in Scottish football, these two messages have appeared more and more across our game from the Premiership to the Juniors as another long winter takes its toll. No fan wants to see games off and it’s been… Continue reading The Football CFB View: Summer football – too radical? Or absolutely necessary?
Greenock Morton 4 – 4 Alloa To quote the legendary Sir Alex Ferguson: Football. Bloody hell. Today’s game at Cappielow wasn’t so much a game of two halves but a game of ever-changing moments: a Yo-Yo encounter for me. Morton started the game very well and were in control from the offset. This was shown… Continue reading The Football CFB verdict: Yo-Yo encounter at Cappielow was our game at it’s best.

I am a self confessed football fanatic and the reason I started Football CFB is because I watch a silly amount of football each week and consume a crazy amount of football content each week online, by reading books and watching documentaries. In this article, I have picked out my top 10 footballing reads from… Continue reading The Football CFB Top 10: Football Books
I have always been incredibly passionate about football across all levels in Scotland, England and Europe. Anyone who knows me will tell you that I never shut up about football.

The Football CFB view: Pyramid restructuring is long overdue – Could we now see the return of the Bankies?
Clydebank Football Club have a rich history in Scottish football. Over the years they’ve had Scottish football icons like Davie Cooper and Terry Butcher on their books as well as many cult hero’s of the Scottish game such as Owen Coyle, Chick Charnley, Bobby Williamson among many others. They also spent three years in the… Continue reading The Football CFB view: Pyramid restructuring is long overdue – Could we now see the return of the Bankies?
Some say he’s too ‘old school’. Some say he is just another ‘long ball manager’. Some say that is just ‘an angry man’. However, my view is that Dick Campbell has to be the most underrated manager in Scottish football bar none. Yes at times he can be angry, yes at times he’s maybe played… Continue reading The Football CFB view: Dick Campbell – the most underrated manager in Scottish football?
The Football CFB View – Winter break-ing point: Failure to win a trophy would mean only one thing for Gerrard and Rangers
December 29th 2019. Celtic 1 – 2 Rangers. An incredible performance by Steven Gerrard’s side at Celtic Park who in truth blew Celtic away in central areas of the pitch on the day to thoroughly deserve their victory. Crucially, victory at Celtic Park put Rangers within 2 points of Celtic with a game in hand.… Continue reading The Football CFB View – Winter break-ing point: Failure to win a trophy would mean only one thing for Gerrard and Rangers
“What do teams like Hamilton and Livingston do for our image of football in Scotland?” “Teams with low attendances don’t belong in our top flight!” “It’s a shambles that big teams like Dundee Utd and Falkirk are in the lower leagues at the expense of Hamilton and Livingston.” These are just some of the views… Continue reading The Football CFB View: Performances represent footballing merit not attendances.
The return of Raith Rovers? Ant and Dec. Tea and Toast. Raith Rovers and John McGlynn. Somethings are just better together for whatever reason. Raith have suffered badly for quite a few years now following relegation from the championship under Gary Locke and then John Hughes in 2017. Many football fans expected Raith to bounce… Continue reading The Football CFB View: the return of Raith Rovers?
