  1. Football in Scotland will always survive. I keep saying it year after year, when are these clubs who spend money they don't have going to wake up to reality?? Why do they pay such ridiculous wages to mediocre players? I feel sorry for some Townie fans, but not all of them. They take great delight in making fun of smaller clubs, sometimes sneering at them, sometimes patronising them. Yet, all the time they have been in a totally false position pi**ing away money they did not have to get in that position. They are a small club and always will be and the sooner they wake up to that the better. Scotland is a small country with small teams and the only way we will compete in the future is to develop our youngsters the correct way. Not by pretending that we can somehow buy success with debt whilst pandering to every whimper from Celtic or Sevco. Instead, our football is run by buffoons who do absolutely nothing of any use to promote our game at grassroots level. It is little better than it was ten or twenty years ago and any minor improvements have come from external influences. Scottish football, like in some other countries, needs a total overhaul. However, nothing will happen. The fans will be ignored yet again and some other farcical league set-up will be introduced to keep us bored to death and strangle the game even further.

  7. YOu know, the more I see of the British establishment's attitude to this whole business, particularly the BBC's effective suppression of the GERS report at the expense of the Swinney bashing, the more I realise just how utterly twisted and pointless the political and press machine is down here. It's a total shambles. When I was still very much a Unionist, my arguments were based on shared history and commonality of identity, at least in the case of the majority. THe sad facts are that the only people that the status quo suits are those in the South East - Scotland is just lucky enough to be able to break away and thrive if it so chooses. PLease spare a thought for the North of England - those poor sods are going to have an even worse deal when SCotland leaves, because the true extent of Scottish cash in will become apparent.

  8. That's seriously one of the most cringeworthy commentaries I've ever heard. That's reason enough to want the pars to fold.

  14. Sanchez, Garrard, Tebow, McElroy and Matt Simms are currently on the roster. Tebow will be cut and Simms is a nobody. So if we add Kolb (which I'd be fine with btw) that would make it a 4-way QB competition in training camp. Perhaps we're trying to build one massive QB like the power rangers.

  16. The t-shirts are (obviously) just a joke by the way. There were similar ones on sale before the final with Hibs last year. Although in retrospect, it was indeed only Hibs.

  20. Noticed on dafc.net they'll be having buckets on the concourse for donations. I'd imagine they'll have this covered already, but if they got them outside I'd imagine a fair number of our fans would be happy to donate. I've said it before, but I'd be more than happy to slip in a tenner.

  25. It's going to get worse, but I think that's a good thing in the longrun. Assuming the Yes vote continues to strengthen, even slightly, it's going to be a matter of time until the smear tactics become counterproductive. For what it's worth, I doubt if the vote will be Yes, but it'll be close enough to make the status quo unsustainable.

  26. Great to be going DN. I'm only getting there due to another driver covering my shift on Saturday. I just hope to get finished before 7pm on Friday night to get back to Ayr. If I don't I'll just travel up from Boro to Queen Street on Saturday morning with very unfasionable clothes on. The more the merrier PF.

  27. I like how everyone calls the Job the poison challis. If he's as good as County fans say he is then there's absolutely no reason he can't acheive what he's done at County Throw in the facts that: - He'll be in front of bigger crowds - He'll be on more money - He'll have more money to spend on building a squad.

  28. Anita Bean, The Complete Guide to Sports Nutrition, ISBN: 1408105381 As for me Physiotherapy has progressed to the point where I can actually do something genuinely cardiovascular again. I did 1 km freestyle in 20 minutes yesterday. A few years back I did 5 km at that pace but the fact that my shoulder isn't in agony today means this feels like a win

  29. Dont think it is controversial either, but then nor do i see it as a negative. The 'opportunity' to go to Iraq or Afghanistan or god knows where else in the future is not one i would relish. i also think the access to kit might raise a few hackles amongst serving soldiers. Having said all that i'm not a soldier and could be talking shite - they might love it out there.

  31. The standard of grammar in adverts, especially radio adverts is a disgrace. Go Compare - the secateurs one - "will not hasten to use" does not mean you will use them, you mean "will not hesitate" Subway - the all knowing being who doesn't know how they set their prices - whilst one who is omnipotent might reasonally be expected to know everything the word you are looking for is omniscient There are loads but those are just two i heard on the way to work this morning and now raging.

  32. Sortof. Though the Irish were in Kosovo. There will still be a Blue Hat requirement for New Scotland's armed forces. It is one of the good reasons for Independence though, without a doubt. It's one that i find persuasive. It's expensive.

  33. Phillip Hammond up today to make a speech debunking Scotland's defence post independence. 'join the Scottish navy and see the Clyde' he will mock, adding that 'high calibre' recruits will be difficult to obtain owing to a lack of 'opportunities'. I'll be interested to hear what he has to say on the make up of planned UK defence forces in Scotland- that being one air base, Faslane and a couple of barracks. This with a background of poor recruitment to Scottish regiments, down on numbers and filled with foreign troops. I can't see that being eased with the news that 1 scots will be based in Northern Ireland (although the families can apply to stay in Edinburgh). He also implies that we won't be getting any equipment as a percentage share of independence. 'half a destroyer....is no good to anyone'. So, will we build our own ships? So much for the end of Shipbuilding on the Clyde in that case. I see the Irish defence force has had no shortage of applicants as they look to increase their numbers by 600 to 9,500. This looks like another attempt to muddy the waters based on the usual. We'll see......

  35. I would genuinely cry. I must have been a bit early last time so when I saw a group of folk I just got my pint and joined them, chipping in in with irrelevant P&B related nonsense every now and then. It was only when I saw the rowdy bunch of brutes bundle through the door that i realised how badly I'd misjudged the situation and a more than hasty retreat was made.

  37. That's the same way I feel, the precedent was set with your team, and they should be allowed to do a newco route. If not the sfl, & sfa will lose a lot of support.

  38. I'm far from wanting the Pars to go bust, but as you're a Dundee fan.. I hope your work doesn't pay you for months, eventually agrees to pay you 7% of what you're owed as they say they're skint and then carry on overspending like nothing ever happened.

  39. We can't be back to the, 'I bought the titles' pish, Shirly? Didn't we sort this out around Christmas time last year? From what I recall of the discussion (and remember, drink had been taken), The following was agreed: 1. Chuck's statement was a pile of manure. Indeed, an embarrassing pile of manure. 2. Henrick's tongue was the one who actually bought the titles. 3. He then exchanged them with Youngsy for his match baw used in the great football game between German and British soldiers on Xmas day in 1914 when Youngsy was fighting on the Western Front. Panini stickers were used to make up the value either way. So from my recall Youngsy actually is heir to Rangers' titles. Can we leave it at that?

  43. Can I just say, I'm enjoying the banter with the Jambos. Cup finals without the bigot brothers are braw'. That is all. Good to know that if we lose, at least the Jambos, who are going through a tough time losing players and with uncertain finances will have something to celebrate... Mind you, I genuinely hope we give you a doing. No offence!
