The national side is a constant source of abject misery but at some point it might end. Sir Steve Clarke is the latest man charged with leading us to the glory of a first round exit at a major tournament. 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.
The scale of the work to be done was writ large last night.
A slow, ponderous build-up with 90% of the ball posession taking place with their backs to the opposition goal, allowing the other team to set their defence while we're still knocking balls sideways in midfield.
An astonishing lack of pace in the side. A huge thanks to Jonny Hayes for all his years, but he has nothing left in the tank. And yet he's probably the fastest player we still have.
On top of that, because we can never create or take chances, there's always the chance for the opposition to nick a stupid goal as our defence turns off as it did last night.
All in all, we're downright turgid. And have been for 6 months now.
There's a lot of work here for Glass. I'm never keen on 'clear outs' as I believe in building teams over a few seasons, but for the first time since McInnes arrived in 2013 we badly need one.
A big thank you to Hayes, McGinn and probably big Andy, but it's time to step back. Goodbye to Kennedy, nowhere good enough for Aberdeen. The loan players will all leave....Hendry has tried hard, but none of them are the 20 goal a season striker we need. I'm tempted to throw McLennan on the bonfire, but a season on loan in the Championship may do him some good.
Woods will step back into the reserve role, but I'd like to see the captaincy taken away from Lewis and handed to a leader.
It's a huge rebuilding job if we're to compete next season for 3rd place and in the cups. We're loaded with midfielders and have nothing up front. There seem to be no forwards ready to step up from the U-21s, so it'll all have to be bought in.
Concerning times. At the moment we're heading for a bottom 6 finish next season. Glass has 2 months and 18 days to put a new team together.
