Airdire United are scum. Let's get that out of the way first.

They killed Clydebank FC to save their asses. They seem to avoid relegation due to many series of unfortunate events. They have some of the worst supporters in the Scottish lower leagues.

They've managed to sink to new lows though. I didn't really think that was possible.

Have a look below at the cover from their programme for Saturday's game against fellow club killers Livingston.

This was their special Rememberance Day cover with "Lest We Forget" emblazened on it.

Notice anything unusual about the picture? Yup, that's right, it's of Nazi soldiers!

I know it was clearly a genuine mistake, unless some neantherthal Union Jack waving Section B Nazi skinhead has infiltrated their programme now, but seriously, FFS how can you let that one slip through. As soon as I saw the picture I knew it was Nazi soldiers.

They're being crucified in the press for it and have apologised profusely. Their Chairman seems mortified. Honest mistake guvner and all that and I do feel sorry for the poor numpty that let that go through but still, what fuckwits. Having the phrase "Supporting Our Heroes" under the picture of the Nazi troops just added to the embarassment of it all.

On the plus side, that's one less programme that East Fife need to worry about for "Programme of the Year!
