  1. The Worst Posters in P&B History (2017 Edition)

    While some of the comments could have been seen as taking things too far, it's worth acknowledging that posters only started getting that harsh on him at the point where he was making jokes about going on holidays with other people's money with a resentful, arrogant tone, beyond just stating the facts of owning a second home and going on a cruise. He brought every bit of stick he got on himself, with his persecution complex always kicking in after he instigated every discussion about the subject with thinly veiled comments that were intended to send a massive get it up you to everyone who had an issue with his conduct, rather than being limited to just making threads about himself like the narcissistic w****r he clearly is.

    The only solution now is for you to step in.
  3. It's the rules of the league that players on loan can't play against their parent club. We need to be winning this. We've only had 1 win in the last 7 which was v Brechin and if we don't change that in two games v the bottom two then you'd have to accept that we're in trouble. It has to be six points from these two.
  4. The New Raith Rovers Thread

    OYF It's almost as if clubs getting relegated after Hughes leaves might be something to do with him building terrible squads then slithering away before they implode.

  6. Scotland's Next Permanent Manager.

    I don't think we will, but if we do miss out on O'Neill I'm firmly in the anyone but Lambert camp. I'd rather draw a manager at random from the Slovene third tier than give it to him. A random Slovene jakeball who's accustomed to managing a mix of part-timers and amateurs might as least fluke his way to genius, whereas Lambert is undoubtedly in the Billy Davies and Graeme Souness category of absolute morons who should never be allowed near a management job again and is guaranteed to fail.
  7. D.A.F.C v G.M.F.C 21/11/17

    Not a great watch, but all things considered the result is fine. Gasparotto the same solid centre back he always was with us in his first spell, pleasantly surprised with Doyle's performance as a wing back. That penalty claim was abysmal officiating. Never a handball and the referee correctly gave a corner, only to accept the assistant's advice that it was a freekick on the edge of the box when if it had been a foul it was inside the box by about three yards. Not a chance there were 2000 people in that ground by the way, never mind 4800.
  8. D.A.F.C v G.M.F.C 21/11/17

    You can't recall players who left on loan in a transfer window outside a window. We've improved massively since the equaliser, which came from a good ball in from Doyle after all the criticism he's (deservedly) received for his lack of attacking contributions. Thought that Harkins freekick was going in before Oliver deflected it in the other corner when he was about four yards offside. Still massively unconvinced by 3-5-2 despite the improvement in possession. Dunfermline are still finding too much room in our half.
  9. Gretna - Living (and dying) the Dream

    The first documentary which covered the Second Division and cup final season was a two-parter called Field of Dreams, but I haven't been able to find it anywhere. No particular interest in watching it again as it involves them waltzing to the title ahead of us, but it did have extremely entertaining post-match dressing room footage of Alexander being absolutely seething while Irons screamed abuse at their players after we won 2-1 at Raydale. IIRC Alexander didn't emerge to speak to the press for more than 90 minutes after the game, said 'The best team won' then stormed off again. Delicious. I did find this article previewing the documentary, which is an excellent example of the tone of the vast majority of mainstream coverage of Gretna at that point: http://www.scotsman.com/sport/football/tv-documentary-sheds-revealing-light-on-the-rise-and-rise-of-gretna-1-1117210
  10. Scottish Cup 2017/18

    Go to page 11 of this thread when the draw for the last round was (finally) finished - you'll find the few complaints about ties as opposed to the administration of the draw being focused on ties being worse compared to the first attempt for individual clubs, with no one saying the draw as a whole was full of boring games. Mainly because that one wasn't full of boring games and this one was.
  11. Scottish Cup 2017/18

    Aye, it might be that everyone wants to call the Scottish Cup boring for no apparent reason. Alternatively, it could be down to the blatantly obvious fact that almost half the ties in the draw consisted of teams from the same division drawing each other, a situation which is quite obviously exceptionally boring for every sane fan of every team involved and those fans are therefore accurately describing their shite, boring draws as being boring and shite, with the significant number of clubs suffering that fate meaning a significant number of fans feel that way. Just a hunch, but I think I might be onto something.
  12. Scottish Cup 2017/18

    Of the 16 ties, 7 of them are between clubs in the same division. Do you expect fans of those 14 clubs to be jumping for joy at getting teams in the same division when they could have had a day out to a ground they've never been to before or at least a game against a team they haven't played in years?
  13. D.A.F.C v G.M.F.C 21/11/17

    I've made the ridiculous decision to go to this. Expecting nothing but hopefully the two week break has freshened the players up a bit and we make a game of it.
  14. Scottish Cup 2017/18

    Not even just for us, that whole draw is absolute bad AIDS.

    Someone botch this and get it restarted please.
