I find the Old Firm tedious but if you look beyond that, Scottish football is quite entertaining. As Craig Levein would say, it's a good laugh, isn't it?

A View From The Terrace on the BBC Scotland channel on Friday nights (and the iPlayer) is a great show.

Didn't Vale play Aberdeen in a friendly a few years ago? Or am i dreaming that it happened? 

I'm sure we played a Scottish team at VP and it was a boring pre season 0-0 

Aberdeen won 1-0. Think they got a late penalty. 

We also played Hibs (I think) at Newcastle Town's ground, mid-nineties.

As Hobblesworth said we lost to a last minute penalty. My mate is an Aberdeen fan so I was very interested in the result, long time ago now but I'm pretty sure it was a dive.

Vale played Queen of the South in pre season maybe 25 years ago or even longer. 

Stayed the weekend in Dumfries and I'm sure if my memory is correct a few Vale fans had a kick about on the pitch . 

The ground reminded me very much of Mansfield back in the day before improvements 

I also was at that match. My lasting memory was that sometime during the game, a local walked into the ground and stood with his mates who were next to me. 

"What's the score" he enquired and was informed it was 4-0. "Who to" he responded, to which his pals burst into fits of laughter! (or was that East Stirling?) 

I also saw Vale at the now sadly defunct Clydebank sometime in the mid/late 70's. That one we lost 3-1.

But on the actual product, a friend of mine loved Scottish football, especially the lower leagues, which he quite accurately described as "exciting rubbish"
