  1. The Graeme Murty's Rangers 2017/8 Thread

    I watched Falkirk beat Ajax once. Friendly victories don't count for much.
  2. Sportsound Watch 14/15

    Had the misfortune to listen to the discussion about Michael O'Neill today. Tom English doesn't have to do much to be the smartest guy in the conversation when Pat Bonner and Chick Young are involved. Chick reckons Strachan should have been kept on and when trying to offer any argument against O'Neill just became a stammering mess desperately searching for a soundbite. It was painful to listen to. It's worth remembering that not long ago he was proposing Jim Duffy as Scotland manager. Bonner seemed to think that Scotland are offering more money than Northern Ireland despite being told often this wasn't the case. This is probably as boring to read as it was painful to listen to but they really do need to get Chick to f**k.
  3. The Falkirk FC Thread

    There seems to be a lot of people being offended on Dean Shiels behalf. I don't know him but I'd be surprised if he cared. I am in no way excusing it the best outcome is the fans are identified and banned and embarrassed and prosecuted. I'd imagine he was more offended by Kevin O ' Hara's actions as it was a fellow professional abusing him during a game. O' Hara has been given appropriate disciplinary punishment. Social media doesn't tend to be the place where reasoned comments are given the time of day
  4. The Terrible Journalism Thread

    Either the journalist did a number on him or he's a fantasist. The Daily Record clearly recognised the clickbait potential of uncritically publishing the story.
  5. The Good Guys

    Juan Mata maybe worth a shout. His 1% donation of wages is maybe relatively not that big but it's good to see a footballer with a bit of awareness of the world around them.
  6. The Terrible Journalism Thread

    The 'Daily Record Hotline' should automatically redirect calls to a mental health helpline just as a simple duty of care.
  7. Peaky Blinders

    If I didn't know it was Adrian Brody, I'd think Luca Changretta was Alistair Magowan doing an over the top impression impression of a stereotypical mafia type. Series was enjoyable as ever though.
  8. Rangers vs St Johnstone 16th December

    Blair Alston always good for a goal against Rangers.
  9. Question Time

    I didn't expect the guy with the Electrolarynx is that a Question Time first? If he had broke into 'Intergalactic' by the Beastie Boys he would be a hero.
  10. Faure comes across a bit like Louis Theroux there from his earlier 'weird weekend' series. Trying not to be judgemental while clearly finding it ridiculous
  11. I thought this must have been photoshopped then I googled the story. Jesus fucking Christ. A father thought it was a good idea to let his kid black up. I'm not offended and it looks like the players weren't either but what kind of parent thinks 'that is a good idea there won't be any comeback on that'
  12. Unsurpassed dignity in defeat there.
  13. Masterchef Pros

    I'm hoping Louisa continues to improve and goes on to win. The young Scottish guy seems really good too. I've got a feeling that vegan dessert made from vegetables guy might win, he is a bit too sure of himself though.
  14. I assume I'm naive in asking if they ever printed a retraction and apology for that story once it turned out to be bollocks.
