  1. Album of 2017

    I'm going to see Jason Isbell as well. Just a shame it's been moved from the ABC to the Academy, as the Academy is shit. A couple of changes to mine now I've had more of a chance to listen to a few albums. I'd kind of been neglecting the new Isbell Album and still listening to his old ones. Still loving the Manchester Orchestra album though : 1. Manchester Orchestra - A Black Mile to the Surface 2.Jason Isbell & the 400 Unit - The Nashville Sound 3. Dave Hause - Bury Me In Philly 4. John Moreland - Big Bad Luv 5. Matthew Ryan - Hustle Up Starlings 6. Son Volt - Notes of Blue 7. The Menzingers - After The Party 8. Will Hoge - Anchors 9.Justin Townes Earle - Kids in the Street 10 Conor Oberst - Salutations

  3. St Johnstone v Partick Thistle

    Great save, but macca was offside, so no shots on target that I can remember. The sooner we stop trying to play Macca as a loan striker, the better. It makes us so toothless, pedestrian and predictable. Better team won no doubt - Thistle always impress me in Perth, probably because we generally sit off in the middle and allow you to pass round us. The failure to even hit the target by Ando and Cummins with their chances was criminal. Thought Cummins getting cleaned out was a penalty as well - defender got caught the wrong side and shoved him over. I must be in the minority, but I thought it looked like a clear penalty. Nisbet got to the ball first and Ando (after his customary split second pause to try to settle himself before trying to kick the ball with his left foot) seemed to catch him. Second goal was a cracking finish by Edwards, but he was given so much time and space to pick his spot. 3rd was a good finish too. I actually thought Nisbet wasn't too bad - decent movement and link up play, but his shooting was honking.
  4. Pregnancy And Parenting

    My son had terrible colic and reflux until he went onto solids and we used Colief to help with his colic. From our experiences, I wouldn't recommend using it for constipation, as it pretty much caused that issue with him. Each crap was a traumatic experience for him and us!
  5. Summer Transfers 2017

    Wolves have signed Ruben Vinagre from Monaco (18 year old left back) and are rumoured to have agreed a deal with Atletico Madrid for Diogo Jota. Both deals are meant to be a season's loan with option to purchase next summer.
  6. Elgin City 2017/18 Season

    It's definitely not the Wolves player, it's the former Coleraine one. Wolves signed their Jordan Allan as a 15 year old from Airdrie and he's very highly rated down there. He played for the under 23s a couple of nights back. Usual pish sky sports reporting of Scottish football getting the wrong player.
  7. My family and I in 2017.

    Grandparents: 3 have died, my Dad's Dad is still going strong at 91. Parents: Both retired now, but are exceptionally busy doing various voluntary things. My old man has been coaching cricket in primary schools around Perthshire, Mum volunteers in the Macmillan Coffee Shop and they both spend shitloads of their time helping run Cubs and Scouts in Perth. My old man just got an MBE this month for it. They also appear to be spending my inheritance on shitloads of foreign holidays and things from their bucket list. Sibling: a sister, 2 years older than me, who lives in Perth. We've always got on really well together, even though I used to terrorise her a bit when we were younger. Spouse: Married for almost 5 years now to a west coast tink from Bishopton. Kids: 3 year old son. Slightly mental, far too much energy and never shuts up, but he's a brilliant wee kid who I love to bits. Aunts/Uncles: 3 Aunts and 3 Uncles. They all live in England (Wolverhampton, Chester and Manchester areas) so only see them once or twice a year usually. I get on really well with all of them, except for one of my uncle, who we never see these days. He went a bit off the rails a few decades back, screwed up his life through drugs (which meant he lost his job and now has long term health issues) and he's never really been the same since. Nieces/Nephews: 2 nephews, aged 3 and 6. Absolute chaos when my son gets together with them...... Cousins: 3, all younger than me. One has just finished Uni in Reading, one owns a few car modification companies and websites, whilst the other floats around doing various jobs in North Wales. Pretty normal, boring family it seems!
  8. A friend of mine said he saw an older lady get punched to the ground and then hit in the head with a traffic cone by some Hamilton neds near their buses. Sounds like the same incident.
  9. Saints vs Rangers

    There's an overweight, full kit w****r Rangers fan in my hotel as well. He's been wearing the full kit the last few days so, unless he's got a suitcase full of strips, he'll be fucking reekin' by now.
  10. Gigs

    Ticket just bought for Jesse Malin, supported by Matthew Ryan, at King Tuts on 5th July. Bargain at £15.
  11. Pregnancy And Parenting

    Sometimes it can be a total nightmare trying to work out why they're crying! I remember one night at about 3am our son was crying. We'd tried all the usual things and nothing helped. After about an hour of trying and failing to work out the reason, I finally realised he was getting upset everytime he was kicking his legs out straight. It turned out he'd had a growth spurt and his baby grow was too short for him, meaning he couldn't straighten his legs out, which was massively pissing him off!
  12. Pregnancy And Parenting

    Cheers for this (and pandarilla and nelsjfc). Yep, it happened when he was ill as well. We managed to calm him down and back to sleep, but he'd start screaming and shouting again about 30 mins later. Fortunately it hasn't happened again - yet. He really enjoyed his trip to Dingwall- who doesn't like a last minute winner! He's probably still a little bit young to go regularly, as after an hour he's saying he's bored and wants to go home. I'm only taking him to a home game if his 6 year old cousin isn't going - the two of them are unbearable together!
  13. Pregnancy And Parenting

    Anyone here had any experience with the night terrors? My wee boy (3 years old) woke up a couple of nights ago absolutely wringing with sweat, screaming and crying and saying that his mouth and ears hurt. Every time we tried to go near him he'd shout at us and lash out, despite the fact he seemed to still be sleeping. It's never happened before and it upset my wife quite a lot. Touch wood, it's not happened again. Anyway (if I can get the photo to upload!) here he is looking pretty pleased with himself before going to his first Saints away game at Dingwall a few weeks ago:
  14. Album of 2017

    Pretty short list for me so far, as I've only really listened to 3 new albums so far this year: 1. Dave Hause - Bury me in Philly. 2. The Menzingers - After the Party. 3. Deaf Havana - All These Countless Nights.
  15. Bands with one Album

    Yeah, I saw it pop up on iTunes a week or so ago and thought there's no chance they'd be bringing out a new album so long after the first, it must be a reissue. Might have to give it a listen, the first album is a cracker. The La's and Jeff Buckley as well.
