  1. Cove on the Move

    Slow, but it should be good to go for next season.
  2. SNES Classic Edition

    Got one of these a few months ago and spent most of the time since tearing Mario Kart a new one. Spent the entire last weekend playing TLOZ;ALTTP, and it's just the nuts. I remember having both first time round and to this day I've no idea how I found the time to pick up any Standards Grades. Starfox still has the same flaws as before - no save point, looks ropey as f**k - but the hits - Street Fighter II, SMW - are still awesome. It would be perfect if they'd stuck Pilotwings and Sim City on it as well. Then I'd never leave the house.
  3. Did Ian Durrant not also retire as Rangers manager with a 100% record?
  4. Banks O' Dee vs Ayr United

  5. Highland League restructuring

    The thread on Fitba North has someone from Formartine blaming someone with a grudge, but at no point were BOD implicated. They'd the hump with Cove, that much was true.
  6. Highland League restructuring

    Someone did. Pinning it on BOD is a bit much tho. But then it happened to Formartine and everyone found it hilarious.
  7. Highland League restructuring

    The league's been full of meaningless games since Brora appeared with money. A league that produced no repeat winners for a decade after Huntly's fifth title in a row has now been reduced to little more than a rich mans plaything, with Brora and Formartine's financial backing, and Cove's ability to attract talent, skewing things badly at the top. The assumption that there's ambitious sides in the NCL and juniors has never been fully tested. Some talk the talk - like the SHFL clubs did when they voted for the pyramid - but few seem keen to walk the walk. The junior sides admitted of late - Locos, Formartine, Turriff and Strathspey - have been a real mixed bag. The league has willingly become part of the pyramid, but despite voting for it to happen, it doesn't seem too comfortable with its position in the league ladder. Until we fix our attitude to taking part in a national league, I'm not sure where we go.
  8. Highland League restructuring

    The SHFL will roll on as a single division until there's more than 20 teams in it.
  9. Show us your pussy..!

    She thinks she likes every kind of food. Her only having one tooth means she struggles with ham, chicken and the like, but she gives it a go. Big fan of licking the flavour off Wotsits and Skips, too.

    Suzie McKenzie. 15 years old, one tooth left. She's on Facebook, too.
  11. Pyramid Structure Below Highland League

    Since the pyramid playoffs first started we've had this every year amongst folk in the SHFL. There's definitely a problem explaining it to older folk, who continue to wonder how the SHFL would work with 19 teams (answer - without much difficulty) or if Cowdenbeath/Edinburgh City would get relegated into it (no) or if we'd promote Banks O'Dee into the SHFL (no). It'll only be another twenty years before folk understand it. Not that it's any real relevance for the SHFL anyway, seeing as one of the statistically best ever SHFL sides (Brora), the most consistent over the past fifteen years (Cove) and a club well known for showing up the big occasion (Buckie) all blew their chances at getting promoted. If they can't do it, and Cove don't this season, then I doubt anyone ever will.
  12. Pyramid Structure Below Highland League

    Teams don't get to pick the league they play in. Cowdenbeath would go into the Lowland League. Montrose were rumoured to be considering going junior (or folding) if they were relegated but who knows how that would have panned out. The SHFL voted down a two league set-up in the immediacy but it'll be considered again should the league reach and/or breach 20 teams. We'd then face promoting a junior side into a league they'd romp while at the same time hate playing in because the top tier would be mostly Shire and anyone promoted into the bottom tier would face plenty treks to Fort, Strathspey, Inverness, Nairn, possibly Wick and certainly darkest Moray.
  13. C**** on Holiday

    Flew out of Glasgow last week to Mallorca. Only a few folk clapped when the plane landed. A weird experience.
