    Bob Mortimer's Peter Beardsley impression on Athletico Mince may well be the funniest thing I've ever heard on a podcast.

    Juno the dog. Today is the 7th anniversary of her joining the family. She was abandoned as a pup we got her from the council dog pound so no idea what her heritage is best guess.is a cross.between a whippet and patterdale.
  3. You team's most 'successful' position.

    That is true. I'm fairly certain that when I first started watching.Falkirk Stuart Burgess was top scorer one season because he took penalties. At the time Gerry McCoy was seen as the last proper goalscorer for Falkirk before his disastrous second spell.
  4. You team's most 'successful' position.

    I'd forgotten all about him, that is well remembered.
  5. You team's most 'successful' position.

    I'm not sure if he was, he may have been a local guy, I think he followed the well trodden Falkirk goalkeeper route of going to the Shire after Falkirk and played for Linlithgow Rose too I remember seeing him in a junior cup final for them. My Gordon Marshall love is probably mostly nostalgia and him being the goalie in the league winning season. As a kid I went to a 'Gordon Marshall goalkeeper training day for the Falkirk junior bairns' on the astroturf beside Brockville and got trained by Marshall, Gordon McDougall and Stephen Hutchison. With that pedigree of coaching it's mystifying that I didn't become a top class goalie.
  6. You team's most 'successful' position.

    I'd always have Gordon Marshall in the list of excellent Falkirk keepers though I may be biased because he gave me a signed pair of his gloves when I was a nipper. One of the worst I remember is the guy Jeffries signed from the juniors at short notice to play in the premier league, Willie Lamont, I think. That is the exhaustive list of Yogi's goalies, Glennon was a funny one he made a couple of mistakes, a last minute f**k up against Hearts being notable but his performance away to Dunfermline remains the best I've witnessed by a Falkirk goalie, he was unbeatable that day and it seems to have been a personal disagreement with Yogi that saw him cast out rather than his form.
  7. Motherwell v Celtic

    It's not the worst thing he has tweeted he also tweeted that Cardinal Keith O'Brien should be remembered for the good things he did rather than his Harvey Weinstein behaviour towards young priests.
  8. Motherwell v Celtic

    To tweet that and spectacularly miss the point that it is a dig at Brown play acting and interpret it as an 'incitement to murder' would be funny if it wasn't an elected representative doing it. This idiot has a modicum of power.
  9. Sportsound Watch 14/15

    It was painful to listen to the presenter constantly trying to interject with 'but does he have a point about the standard' while everyone else was just basically saying Barton's a gobshite and his opinion doesn't matter. I think the rest of the guests had heard the 'Sunday League' nonsense and didn't think it merited a proper response. The presenter nearly jizzed when Barton texted in.
  10. Rugby - Union And League

    One of the interesting parts of the documentary is that racial prejudice prompted black players to move to rugby league. There are two players featured, Billy Boston and Clive Sullivan who chose to move to league( where they became greats), not just for money but because at the time there was no chance they would go far in the Welsh rugby union system.
  11. Rugby - Union And League

    A bit off topic but I watched a decent documentary on iplayer called Codebreakers, it is about Welsh players that switched from union to league going back to the early part of the last century. I'm not really much of rugby fan but I like a good sports documentary, and this was really interesting.
  12. Scott McTominay

    Was it a charity dinner for Chronic Fatigue Syndrome?
  13. Stockport County

    There was a good article about them in a recent WSC. The contributor was a Stockport fan and it was mostly about the Danny Bergara years. Sounds like that was a fun time to support them.
  14. Rangers vs Kilmarnock 17th March

    I generally agree with what you are saying. You have done QOS a disservice there, they beat Rangers 2-0 a fortnight before Hibs scudded them. Anyway well done Killie.
  15. Rangers vs Kilmarnock 17th March

    Not sure Hibs and Hearts can take credit for showing that team up as ordinary , Alloa got a draw against them very early in the season.
