  1. Queens v Pars

    McIntyre is the obvious choice if we can ignore the 'never return' factor. Otherwise nelson or Hopkin(i believe he is available in the summer) would be strong candidates. McKinnon and Petrie would also keep me happy. If we couldn't get any(you would think we could convince 1/5) then apart from of an outstanding outside chance i could tolerate keeping Johnstone providing his new contract made his release pretty cheap.
  2. The 2018 Challenge cup final.

    The suits absolutely love McDiarmid, I know it's a really easy choice as soon as a highland side is involved but unless something has massively improved since our last visit(it's been a while) I don't see what it has over the multitude of similar grounds. Given ground rental is essentially free money(all match day expenses are deducted before the share is handed out, any damage would be payed for by the club at fault, additional maintenance costs for holding 1 game will be minimal) should this game not be moved around just a little? 27 finals 10 x McDiarmid 5 x fir park 4 x broadwood 2 x almondvale 2 x excelsior 1 x love street 1 x dens 2 games that are outliers due to significantly higher attendance 1 x hampden 1 x Easter road Outside of those 2 games the average crowd is 6675. There is alot more grounds suitable for this match. Use them.

    City are absolutely seething and it's glorious
  4. Stay Classy Sinn Fein

    Your going to have to explain how it's a human rights thing, as far as I'm aware there isn't any rights that require anyone to conduct business with you in any particular language. And yes it's rather ridiculous either side is making a big issue out of it, it isn't an issue that has a huge effect either way. Crazy a parliment shouldn't function over a tiny thing.
  5. Walking Down The Halbeath Road

    Aye that'll be it. We'd never drop our captain. Oh wait, Morris is our captain, and nicky was stand in because he was dropped on Saturday.
  6. Livingston v Dunfermline

    Believe refs are under instruction that if you have been considered to deliberately kick it off an opponent then they should allow play to continue.
  7. Livingston v Dunfermline

    Alexander didn't do anything I wouldn't want my own player to be doing in similar circumstances, and I would actually wonder if you hadn't got the draw would their have been questions from hopkin about others not doing similar. I would hope a referee would be wise to that and have a word early with a booking following if it continues, it's the only way to stop it, otherwise the players (particularly keepers) are rightly going to take as long as they can. Since we are talking of pet - hates that's one of mine, ref's don't appear to be aware of circumstances like that, it seems a case of them seeing someone taking longer but it not clicking they are doing it for clear tactical reasons and they will continue to do unless they take action to stop it. Similarly teams will as part of their pre-match preparation look at video of their opponents and try to build an understanding of how they will play and what to watch out for. It doesn't look like ref's do the same, they seem to be completely unaware on how certain players will push the rules.
  8. Livingston v Dunfermline

    No, that was my original point, I wouldn't be worried about a big turnover in players, it is the norm.
  9. Livingston v Dunfermline

    Outfield players just use their arms/elbows instead. As you say, lots of keepers do it, and it isn't without reason, they must ensure they are strong in that scenario or they could be toppled, theirs been enough keepers with broken collerbones, dislocated shoulders etc to justify it whilst strikers create dangerous scenarios by preventing keepers from safely landing after taking a catch.
  10. Livingston v Dunfermline

    Tbf Miller should be nowhere near Robinson at that point, it's that reason keepers will raise feet/knee's. Strikers regularly put themselves in a position where they can't play the ball but will inevitably collide with an airborne keeper, it creates a dangerous scenario. Eta, Robinson ' s a dick who regularly behaves like a child but somehow has managed to avoid getting sent off with the regularity he should, but he hasn't done anything different to what his colleagues would do in that situation.
  11. Livingston v Dunfermline

    I was counting last January as well. Going by that 6 of your starting 11 are new signings this season, big players like mcginn and smith only joined months before hand. That isn't stable IMO.
  12. Livingston v Dunfermline

    The turnover at St mirren over the last year has been massive, fair enough they have improved on what they've had but they aren't exactly a great example of squad stability
  13. Livingston v Dunfermline

    A high turnover of players is natural at this level, it's not something that particularly concerns me. I'm doubtful any additional prize money would pay for a new management team, everything else you have stated is unquantifiable rubbish.
  14. Livingston v Dunfermline

    What do we achieve by sacking him?
