No sooner does one party roll out of town, than we are talking about the possibility of another one booking in.
As the curtain comes down on another record-breaking Edinburgh festival season, there has barely been time to take stock before facing up to another decision that will potentially have a huge impact on the Capital. Tomorrow the Scottish Football Association is expected to decide whether or not to move out of its historic home in Glasgow and into a new era at Murrayfield Stadium.
The home of Scottish Rugby would make a superb base for our national sport. Fans would enjoy a far superior matchday experience to that on offer at Hampden Park. Everything would be better from the transport links to the stadium, the on-site pre and post-match entertainment and the stadium itself. The economic benefit to the city as a whole would be enormous with tens of thousands of supporters flocking to regular fixtures.
For the football authorities, it will be a decision tinged by emotion as ever Scot who loves the sport has so many memories tied to Hampden Park. Moving to Edinburgh would be a siesmic shift - but the fans would have no reason to look back.
