Soccer FM is a new weekly podcast feature for season 2016-2017 which we are hosting. The show is a short sharp and hopefully witty review of the weekend's major talking points across the SPFL and is hosted by Dunfermline fan Steven Mill (of Capital FM fame) and Partick Thistle supporter and comedian Ray Bradshaw.
We hope you enjoy it and get involved with the lads as the show takes shape over the coming weeks.
The national side is a constant source of abject misery but at some point it might end. Alex McLeish is back and charged with leading us back to a major tournament for the first time since 1998. Discuss all aspects of the Scotland team here.
There are 30-40 Saturday-playing amateur leagues in Scotland covering Highland, North of Scotland, North of Tay, Tayside, Fife, East of Scotland, South of Scotland, and West of Scotland regions. Discuss them all here !
The P&B massive have a love of many other sports too so if you want to talk Golf, Egg Chasing, Tennis, Yank Football, Baseball, Cricket, Darts, Snooker or Synchronised swimming or anything else then here is the place to do it.
Jamie Wire has retired as our resident statto but never fear as craigkillie has stepped in to take over ! Feel free to post any question in this forum on the subject of Scottish football (line-ups, results, trivia etc) and either he or one of the many forum regulars will be only too happy to try and help!
This is the General Nonsense forum for use by all P&B visitors to discuss anything and everything. Note that any music, tv, film, gaming or technology related threads should be placed in the respective forums (see below this one) for those topics.
Getting good travel advice is invaluable when you are thinking of heading somewhere new. P&B has a very well well travelled membership so this section is for you to pick their brains about where you are off to.
It's long been requested by the masses and finally here it is. P&B Gold is where old classic threads will be moved to by the mods whenever they have served their time in the main forum.
Users can contribute to threads that make their way in here, but can't start new topics here. Of course we want users to suggest threads that merit being moved here, and we will NEVER archive any of the threads that sit in Gold.
'Football' journalism is written by people who can't write properly for people who can't read properly about a game that isn't played properly, to paraphrase some 1960s genius who might be Frank Zappa.
Every now and again I'll come across aspiring journalists who want to be 'football writers'. That depresses me. I'd much rather they were good all-round writers who knew a bit and who could turn to sport. Old Firm fanboy garbage drives me up the wall. How many of these guys really want to 'journalise' instead of peddling PR and press conference guff?
I was at that game, and it did epitomise the first half of that season - SOD and ATS were great wing-backs, and that was the day we knew we'd be near the top of the table.
On the credit side, Ratnamara played champagne football at home for half a season (from memory, he signed SOD but most of the rest of the squad were McCall's players), and put us in a position to contend for the league. Yinited got a similar short spell of silky football when he moved, to a strong squad of talented players... which he dismantled.
On the debit side is everything listed on this thread - chiefly his graceless, classless attitude when he left under a massive cloud and bad mouthed Thistle, his money-grubbing, plus our dodgy away form - which Archibald sorted out so that we ended up winning the league very comfortably and winning loads of games we had in hand, much to Morton's surprise. Who knows if we would have done the same if Ratnamara had stayed to finish the job; it's certainly doubtful.
