'Football in Five Images' is a new theatre discussion show on the state of Scottish football featuring Stuart Cosgrove and Graham Spiers.

Graham and Stuart are two of Scotland's most outspoken commentators on the state of Scottish football and appear regularly on television, radio and in the print media. This short theatre tour will bring them together to argue and debate the current challenges facing the national game, subjects as diverse as television and its impact on football, the rise of social media, the national team, the role and responsibilities of football in the community, etc. The show will refuse to shirk tackles and will offer candid opinions on the people, the policies and the prejudices that underpin the game. 

Stuart Cosgrove is a one half of BBC Scotland's 'Off the Ball' team and successful television executive. He is a St Johnstone fan who argues passionately on behalf of Scotland’s smaller clubs. Like all football fans he is deeply biased and a raging hypocrite.

Graham Spiers is one of Scotland most renowned journalists who has interviewed most of the key managers, influencers and players on the contemporary Scottish football scene. He claims to be objective but so do all journalists, and they all get found out eventually.
