  1. In the same vein as the 'Top 50 Worst Posters', 'Top 50 Best Films', 'Top 50 Horror Films and 'Top 50 Biggest Fud's on P&B' I thought that we actually do a 'football' related one. Some time ago, someone tried to do a 'Top 50 players' one but it never took off, as people just voted for their clubs current players. Hate is such a strong word, but some players just grind our gears, if hate is too strong, then severe dislike may be more apt. Vote for your top 10 most hated players to have played in Scottish football. Number these 1-10 and send the PM to myself. 1 being your most hated, 10 being the 10th most hated. You can cast your mind as far back as you like and use whatever logic you like. They do not have to have played in the top flight but they do have to have played professionally - That's my only rule. Depending on the uptake towards this, I may reduce it to top 20/15/10 dependent on how many people vote. Feel free to discuss some contenders to keep the thread up the top so that people can see it, but try to refrain from posting your full list for now! Scoring is as follows: 1st = 10 points, 2nd = 9 points, 3rd = 8 points and so forth. In the event of a tie, the poster who has appeared on more different lists. If there is still a tie after this, then the poster with most 1st places will be given priority, then most 2nd places, then most 3rd places and so on. Deadline is Sunday 10th December.
  2. =36. James Forrest - 23 points. Mr. Nae Neck sharing a place with Bob Malcolm. Feel bad for the boy so I won't say anymore. Best moment? Mark Wotte describing him as 'the light in the darkness' of Scottish football.
  3. No poll, because the realistic candidates are just too depressing with Moyes and Lambert available. We MUST go foreign.
  4. =36. Bob Malcolm - 23 points. The ice cream man as he's now known had some career considering he was never very good. Although he was pretty much done as a player by 30, he had some crack at it. His time coaching down South was spent pushing Stephen Dobbie in the face before he and Ferguson had a bit of a nightmare at Clyde. A panic signing for Dundee, he was overweight and useless but then, when wasn't he useless? From signing autographs with 'f**k the pope' to his Twitter bio conveniently forgetting the fact he played for Cowdenbeath, the guy has had an 'interesting' career. Best moment? Probably helping Derby get to the EPL. Fair fucks to him, that's a decent achievement.
  5. I'd understand this move if you made it at the start of the season but this is bonkers money to achieve what? A top 6 slot that's likely yours anyways. Jeezo. Amazing signing, great coup but what's the point?

    C) You just hope you can make it that long.
  7. The live wrestling forum for Raw.
  8. I might be wrong, but I don't think the Premiership Forum has a thread for this? If we do, I'll happily close the thread. I know the Championship has one that thrives only too well due to some shocking journalism. The inspiration behind this thread came from BBC Sport's online report of Celtic's game against Stjarnan yesterday by Chris McLaughlin. Former Motherwell keeper, Gunnar Nielsen was playing for Celtic's opposition and here are McLaughlin's attempts at spelling his name, throughout the report: Neilsen Nielson (Twice) Neilson And then finally, in the listing of the line-ups he got it spot on with Nielsen. Surely at the top level, that's unacceptable? The fact that he kept changing the spelling throughout has to be some sort of in-joke? Here's a link to the article: Link. Anyways, feel free to chip in with your own examples as and when you find them!
  9. Football Manager 2018

    I've been utilising a 3-5-2 formation on this year's game. Finished 2nd, 2 seasons in a row with Partick Thistle with barely any signings. 3 ball playing defenders, 2 wing-backs pushed into the defensive wing position. A ball winning midfielder and a box to box midfielder. Then an advanced playmaker set to attack with an advanced forward and a supportive target man up top (Although since I lost Sammon that's changed to a false 9) Scored 90 goals in the league in my first season. Only really Celtic have stopped me from silverware. If Partick weren't in so much debt I'd be fairly confident of winning the league if they gave me say about £2million or so purely down to the formation. Connor Sammon got something like 35 goals for me in all competitions the first season and couldn't get a game for Hearts the second. Elliott and Booth are fantastic wing backs. Wing backs are key to this game.

    He's ripped the piss out of you how many times now? I don't think he really cares about his fall back option. You're the fat lass basically. That said, I don't really rate Swanson that much, so I don't think McCann will go for him.
  11. All things Dundee FC

    Think this is a cracking interview with McCann by The Courier. That paper gets a lot of deserved stick but thoroughly enjoyed this article: https://www.thecourier.co.uk/fp/sport/football/dundee-fc/580590/dundee-boss-neil-mccann-insists-work-dens-just-begun/

    Daily Record following a similar story today saying Celtic are preparing to bid 800k but a Dens Park source said that would come absolutely, nowhere close to what we want. It's good to see that we are making a public stand. If Celtic actually do bid 800k I'd expect Hendry to be a Celtic player by the end of the day. That being said, if he doesn't have a clause in his contract it'd be the first time we'd actually get to see Nelms react to a bid and see how he values our players. Our owners are pretty successful businessmen, probably the most successful businessmen to own a Scottish club at this moment in time. They've never experienced the hassle of an OF club courting a 'diddy' club player before and it's not as if Keyes will be pressurised by the media, he spends the majority of his time in Texas. I reckon there's potential for us to just tell Celtic to cough up an unreasonable figure or just bolt.
  13. The Star Wars thread

    I fucking loved Phantom Menace. It was my first Star Wars film at the cinema though. I was Darth Maul'd oot my nut and convinced he'd smash Vader as Vader had an embarrassing battle with an old man. (You can tell I took little interest in the plot at the time). Also, Liam Neeson was cool as f**k in it. ETA: I've never watched it since and I'm now scared to watch it based on the judgements made on here.
  14. All things Dundee FC

    That's a lot of shite. Hendry would breeze into their first team now. And they're skint.
  15. All things Dundee FC

    Wouldn't surprise me.

    The White Cafu not getting a look in at LB?
  17. 38. Andy Goram - 21 points. Cracking keeper, of that there is no question. Some of his views and opinions though are, well, less befitting of a man with such talent. Here's a few links worth reading: https://www.thescottishsun.co.uk/archives/news/27986/youre-dead-and-we-know-where-you-live/ https://www.scotsman.com/sport/tom-english-the-self-pitying-goram-still-sees-himself-as-the-victim-1-1362600 https://www.scotsman.com/sport/football/teams/rangers/tom-english-andy-goram-s-media-prominence-troubling-1-2564930 Best moment? There's only 2 Andy Gorams.

  19. I'll get another couple up tonight lads. Have no fears. I won't lie and say I'll be finishing this list in a week, it'll be a drawn out process based on the fact that I'm lazy af. But it'll get done.

    Imagine we had a Juan Sara or Fabian Caballero in their prime with this side. Oyf. Sara would still miss 2/3 a game but probably be top scorer in the league (That season he was neck and neck with Larsson in goals was incredible). Caballero instead of Moussa. Fucking hell. What a difference that'd be. ETA: Caballero is what?! 38/39/40? I'd still have him ahead of our current strikeforce tbh.
  21. All things Dundee FC

    I don't know why I'm feeling a bit deflated. The signing emoji built up too much hype for what is just a 6 month extension and he's still in a place where he's free to speak to any club he wants. Don't get me wrong, getting Jon signed up till the end of the season is a crucial bit of business but I'd hoped for a tastier announcement ie, an extended deal for Jon or one of the others or a new signing.
  22. All things Dundee FC

    Definitely a good thing, but disappointed it's only until the end of the season.
  23. All things Dundee FC

    Michael White was a youth keeper. His one and only appearance for us. We were in crisis at the time. I believe the trialist (I could be wrong) on the bench was Geddes.
  24. All things Dundee FC

    Reading the Tele article of Motherwell's record ever goalscorer, Hugh Ferguson committing suicide at Dens Park when he played for us. I was never aware of this and my first thought was, 'I know we had an unfair support but that's a bit much' - I was shocked to read on that the rumour at the time according to the article was that he did this, 'after persistent abuse from the stands'. I think the story more than shocking me at such a thing occurred at Dens, is quite powerful today because depression in footballers is meant to be widespread and I certainly don't think we've eased off as a crowd over the years. Interesting read: Link.
  25. Football Manager 2018

    I need advice lads. I played a season with Partick Thistle. I finished 2nd in the league (No great signings). Connor Sammon scored 35 goals for me. I'm in desperate need of a target man. I've qualified for Europe. Hearts want 300k for a 31 year old Sammon. How do I justify that?! I can't find anyone else and whilst he's shite I know he works well in my team. Advice lads.
