  1. Champions League 2017/18

    Dortmund taking a leaf out of Maribor's book for giving goals away.
  2. World Cup 2018 Qualifying

    I didn't watch the play off draw live - how come Ireland are at home second when they aren't seeded?
  3. Rugby - Union And League

    Didn't they do different sessions? BT the afternoons and the BBC the evening or vice versa? I don't mind the BT rugby coverage but not sure if it'll be as good for Scotland games as the BBC has been over the years.

    Hate quoting myself but...
  5. Procycling thread

    That was my first impression too. Add Landa into the mix and it makes for an interesting Tour. Sadly it means there is absolutely zero chance of Froome attempting the Giro to hold all three big ones at the same time.
  6. Rugby - Union And League

    All 3 Autumn tests once again on the BBC (Australia and Samoa on BBC1, New Zealand on BBC2) but interestingly they are also being shown live simulcast on BT Sport. Wonder why they're doing that? Usually the BBC games are available UK wide and on the website so you can't imagine BT getting a bit audience.
  7. World Cup 2018 Qualifying

    Agree. I wouldn't be surprised if they went the other way in all 4 ties though.

    Livingston's strength is their midfield, we have big issues in the midfield. We were scoring barrowloads at the start of the season, now we're barely getting one shot on target per game. 0-0.
  9. Scotland's Next Permanent Manager.

    One of the few interesting points made on Sportsound on Saturday was that while Vogts could speak English it was very limited, while Rainier Bonhoff had almost perfect, fluent English. What's he up to these days anyway? [emoji3]
  10. Bigger Change Than Just The Manager?

    Monkey Tennis beat me to it but the onky reason textbooks are seen as being on the way out is because schools can't afford new ones. The vast majority of teachers in a TES article said they want more textbooks, not fewer. Why make up your own material which takes time and effort when there's a ready made alternative? Anyway, on performance schools and the like - my school isn't listed as a performance school but two periods a week 1st and 2nd year pupils of both sexes are removed from regular classes and given football coaching by an SFA coach. It's some sort of "school of football" thing that seems separate to Performance Schools and I wonder how widespread it is. What was a bit strange was that the pupils were removed from what I'd call "Important" subjects such as Science and Maths rather than say Art or Drama (with no offence meant to those subjects) but I guess this was die to the availability or otherwise of the SFA coach.

    That was hilarious. I think everyone in the stand could see the keeper was chipping it every time and all our winger had to do was stand off a minute, wait til it was chipped up then go challenge for it. The fact he didn't chance it was all the more hilarious.
  12. Premier League 2017-2018

    Brad Friedel was always good on Radio FiveLive and I'm sure he did the odd World Cup fame on TV?

    Not played much in the league since - a wee run out for 10 minutes maybe? - and played in the Challenge Cup match at Buckie but other than that, he's the forgotten man despite us having issues on the wings with Cardle injured. I would think you will be unless you think there'll be more than a hundred or so away fans? I've seen the Cowdenbeath end stand behind the goals open for clubs with small travelling supports before though. For tickets it's simple - there's a ticket kiosk that takes cash (if you don't have cash I think you can get tickets for the away end with a card at the club shop) then go to the turnstile and it's scanned in the same way St Mirren, Falkirk etc do it. The issues at East End have mostly been for home fans with little information about the changes, low numbers of gates being open, season tickets not being accepted at some gates, some season tickets being flagged as invalid etc. The only issue for away fans was when St Mirren apparently told us they'd only have 300 fans or so coming and then when about 1000 turned up there weren't enough turnstiles open or food to buy. It shouldn't be a problem on Saturday.

    We need to shore up the midfield a little, whether that is having Higginbotham play a bit more centrally or playing a 4-3-3 with all three playing centrally I have no idea. If it's true that Shiels is suspended (even though it should only be 1 league + 1 cup game, it seems that he's now missing 2 league games) then that fills me with a bit of fear as Splaine was pretty anonymous and with Paton out that's all we really have in there. Strangely, I still think we'll win this. No idea why mind you.
  15. Queens Park vs Dunfermline

    I assume everyone will be in the big South Stand for this? Been in there a few times and the view was decent enough. Can we use the big car park out front or will I need to use the on street parking like a Scotland game? Strangely looking forward to this even though it'll be weird. Having seen plenty of Edinburgh rugby games at Murrayfield with only a few thousand in attendance it won't be totally unique but it'll still be quite surreal.
