  1. Kezia Dugdale’s latest article- opinions?

    Not to say it doesn't exist out there but Kez's idea of how men will constantly witness sleazy behaviour from each other in the workplace, just doesn't match my experience. The last time I heard a "she'd get it eh" type comment from a male colleague was about 10 years ago, in a supermarket warehouse. In the 5 or 6 workplaces since then, I've seen the middle class mummy's of each office collectively frothing over blokes. I wouldn't make any comment about a woman's appearance at work and judging by the complete lack of such comments from male colleagues everywhere I've worked in the last decade, I'm guessing most men think the same. I have no doubt that Harvey Weinstein type characters exist in most industries and that sexual exploitation is still a massive issue in society. Get to f**k with the "normal men need to speak out" shite though.
  2. Project Brave rumbles on..

    at this. Of course someone can look out of their depth moving from one team to a better one in the same league. I'm sure there are examples of it from every league in world football. In most leagues, there are probably examples of it happening every season. Being as good or better than most players in the league doesn't mean a player won't stand if there are 10 much better players in his team.
  3. World Cup 2018 Qualifying

    The Russians can sleep safe tonight knowing the the feared "England and Wales" lads won't be there as one.
  4. World Cup 2018 Qualifying

    Up ye.
  5. World Cup 2018 Qualifying

    Very pleasing. McLean is some boy.
  6. Slovenia Vs Scotland - Official Match Thread

    Can't stand the "who gave us the right to expect qualification" pish every two years. It is true that with our general standing in world football, we can't realistically expect to qualify every time. Hibs didn't have the right to win the Scottish Cup in any given year but there's a reason that people were within their right to take the piss when we didn't do it for 114 years. Likewise, after two decades of f**k all, with campaigns botched against Moldova, Belarus, Lithuania, Macedonia and Georgia, I can't really be arsed patting anyone on the back for coming third and having a nice wee run of form. Edit: Oops, didn't read to the end of the thread before posting this and now see other folk posting the same thing. As you were.
  7. Slovenia Vs Scotland - Official Match Thread

    I agree overall but don't think that's a great example. Robertson is built like a toothpick and you could say he actually is an example of the difference between the physique of players coming through at Scottish teams and in major leagues. Even since Rodgers has been at Celtic and presumably brought some English academy system know-how to Scotland, it's pretty noticeable how different their young players look to other team's. It's an area that the Scottish game as a whole needs to improve on. Moaning about genetics though. Proper jumping the shark from Strachan there. He needs to be mumbling this shite under his breath in a care home, not managing the national team.
  8. Slovenia Vs Scotland - Official Match Thread

    I couldn't give a f**k about the wee runs of form Strachan has put together here and there. He's got a 100% record of making an arse of it when it counts.
  9. Slovenia Vs Scotland - Official Match Thread

    See you later Strachan. Rofl at some of the pundits coming out with the stuff about how he'd proved his doubters wrong. Nope, yet again once it's actually in our hands. he's fucked it. Such a pathetic performance for most of that second half. I wasn't expecting us to be pressing high up and dominating the game but it's inexcusable how negative that was. Slovenia looked bang average as well, it took Scotland being a bunch of wee baws shitebags to give them complete control of the game and two second half goals. It's not exactly told you so territory because none of us can say what would have happened but you have to laugh at the posters who were calling folk idiots for maybe wanting the likes of McGregor to play in these games. You have to play the guys with loads of caps apparently. Fletcher's caps didn't stop him switching off at set pieces or shiting his pants when he had a sitter. Same old, same old.

    If anyone even mentioned the fighters' nationalities or described the overall result as a "robbery" I missed it. As has been said there were quite a few close rounds and everyone's subjective view of those will produce their own results. What can be pretty irritating with boxing is that those close decisions the judges have to make can often be pretty predictable depending on where the fight is happening/who is promoting it etc. I mind plenty folk having a chuckle at Burns getting a 118 score in Glasgow against Relikh. Do you think everyone on P&B has a complex about Belarusians not getting results against Scots, that merits an explanation of how boxing works?
  12. Boxing Thread

    I agree and said so myself: Thought Burns finished pretty well and in the end 117 was too high a margin. Would have had no complaints if Crolla's early-middle round work nicked him the fight. It's really great that you've explained this three times, I don't think anyone knew how boxing scoring worked before.
  13. Boxing Thread

    There it is. 117 man, just f**k off. I wouldn't have complained if Crolla had just edged it, annoying how predictable this pish is.
  14. Boxing Thread

    Think Burns might've worked his way back into at least a draw there. So many close rounds though, worry the judges will give Crolla the benefit of the doubt.
  15. Boxing Thread

    Froch Desperate stuff. There's been 3 or 4 that I've struggled to score and Burns would need most of them to be ahead (which I doubt he'll get here). If Burns could pick up the last two, it'll make things awkward.
