  1. Celtic getting dragged back in is of benefit to everyone if you want your club to be successful domestically. Want to win a cup? Not going to happen if Celtic are getting 20 million a year. Want to see a team at least push them in the league? Absolutely no chance because they'll just buy your best player. What joy do you get sitting watching a team on the tele that doesn't even want anything to do with Scotland winning in Europe and raking it in? It's madness man and sadly typical of the Scottish mindset that the Old Firm can't be defeated. f**k Celtic. The more European money they are starved of and the more fans desert them the better for Scottish football.

  3. Club Statement: Supporters attending Saturdays match versus Dunfermline Athletic may have been aware of an incident in the club car park where a person received emergency medical treatment. A person was reported as having collapsed and following quick action from Peterhead FC officials and the professionalism from Dunfermline Athletics’ Physiotherapist Kenny Murray the person was resuscitated using the clubs defibrillator. A defibrillator is a portable machine that can diagnose and treat life threatening cardiac conditions through the application of electrical therapy that allows the heart to re-establish an effective rhythm. In 2009 the Scottish Football League funded ‘Fit for Football Fit for Life' campaign, where Peterhead FC along with every other member club in the league were provided with a defibrillator and training in their use, this significantly added to the basic first aid that the club can already provide. The latest update on the person is that they are responding to treatment and all at Peterhead FC wish them a full and speedy recovery. The Club also wishes to express its gratitude to Dunfermline’s Kenny Murray for all his assistance during the incident. I missed this as I was in late, but glad to hear that whoever it was is making a recovery.

  4. Because Celtic and The Rangers are the vermin that infests our game. They travel around singing bigoted songs, plunder players from rivals for peanuts, and have a complete and utter attitude of entitlement. They are scum. They don't even want to play in Scotland so why the f**k should fans of other clubs "support" them in Europe? I was fucking delighted they went out and half my family are Celtic fans. It was glorious. That's why.

  5. You're a fucking disgrace. Praying that Celtic and Rangers do well every season to boost our coefficient. It's pathetic. This is a great result for Scottish football. As others have pointed out, the money Celtic would have made would only widen the gap between them and the rest of us. How are we ever going to see another team win the league when Celtic can spend millions on improving their squad every season? Will we have to wait for Celtic to go bust as well? Your comment regarding Newco is hilarious as well. What makes you think they would push for Europe following their arrival into the top flight? They would get horsed most weeks, they are fucking shite. You're a little bitch and you make me sick.

  7. http://scottishcomedyfc.com/a-love-letter-to-mixu-paatelainen/ A Love Letter To Mixu Paatelainen Dear Mixu, It’s been a while since I’ve thought about you, if I’m absolutely honest. Between one thing and another I feel like I’ve forgotten the good times we shared together and I’m writing to you today to apologise. We both have completely different lives to what we had when you left, but think about when we came together. There was me, unable to decide where I wanted to go and you looking for a new challenge, looking to rebuild trust, looking to prove that you were the right man. It’s been all change for me. The people who you remember – my friends – have changed, moved on or in some cases been marginalised and now I feel like there’s the possibility of something better, something more hopeful in my future. I want you to be part of that future. You moved on, and I understand. It was a once in a lifetime chance and although you left a huge hole in my heart, I believe that you did the right thing. Leaving me to be with her – all glitz, glamour and ambition – was exactly what you needed. I tried to move on too. There have been a few men since you left. You know one of them, he was a bit of a loudmouth but you know that. He took a lot of interest in the kids and even though he kept falling out with… well… everyone… he had my best interests at heart. He even brought home the most beautiful gift of all, a trophy. He struggled with the people who had surrounded me and they drove him out. I miss him sometimes, and when he left I did something a bit silly and took up with someone much younger. All my friends were talking about Allan. I’d known him briefly before but he’d never been my main man. Everybody spoke so highly of him that I didn’t think that anything could stop us. I was wrong. He mistreated me. I don’t want to get too into it but when things got intimate, he didn’t seem to know what he was doing and then suddenly – just as soon as he’d come back into my life – he was gone. I didn’t know what to do. I’d lost my favourite kid, the one I’d pinned all my hopes on and then I lost my man. I was reeling, on the rebound. That’s where Gary came in. He’d been hovering around the fringes, talking about salt n’ sauce and showing me pictures of Jim – you don’t know him, he came before you – for a few months and I thought that he might be what I’d been looking for. Hell, I figured he’d do. How was I supposed to know he’d leave me like this? He doesn’t mean to hurt me but I’ve lost so much with him and my family are beginning to turn their backs on me, even shouting at me. They don’t understand why I won’t leave him and they tell me that I should be looking at my past; at the one who got away. They’re telling me that I should be thinking about you. I know that you probably want something younger, more fashionable and – let’s just come out and say it – sexier, but I implore you to turn your back on such flirtations. You know that we complete each other. Me with my crippling debts and family who turn against me on a sixpence, and you with your balls on the ground and portly attacking midfielders – we were formidable, we were unstoppable. Come back to me Mixu Paatelainen. I still love you and I think you still love me too. Yours always, Kilmarnock Football Club

  8. Every team in Scotland outside the Ugly Sisters is expected to know their place. Lack of funds, historical performance, winning mentality, blah, blah. Blah. Any suggestion that a genuine sustainable bid for success can be made is sneered at, laughed off as nonsense and dismissed. Now when Celtic get knocked out of CL, then got on to disappoint in the Europa, it's a surprise and a disaster. No pundits calling for Celtic to accept their position in European football. It's all about the depressing state of the Scottish League. No competition, poor opposition, greet, moan, nae oor fault. The anti establishment rebels financially dominating our league is its biggest weakness. Any thoughts on introducing some kind of levelling the playing field is not even up for discussion. I often wonder how The left wing Celtic supporters like the green brigade etc reconcile their "stick it to the Man" stance with the fact that their club obviously is The Man in Scottish football. Oppressing the smaller teams and preventing any real chance of league success as they buy their way to title after title. The solution is simple. Set up a super league of two. Celtic and Sevco can battle it out for Scotland's one CL place. All most of those club's fans care about is each other and Europe anyway. I suppose they could play in the cups as well. The rest of us can get on with taking the piss out of each other and revel in a league with up to 6 or 7 genuine title contenders. The Europa league is fine by me, an away trip to foreign shores is whatever you make of it, regardless the competition.

  10. Received drivel that bears no scrutiny. Who are these foreigners who ridicule our game and why should I give a shit what they think? In what way is it bad for Scottish clubs? Our game and our clubs have benefited from one OF side being in the shitter. They benefit further when the other one fails to prosper, especially when the rewards for them prospering would have such a damaging, distorting effect. You greet about Celtic if you like, but stop trying to pretend that the rest of us should join in.

  13. First half I thought we were absolutely dominant, Forfar did absolutely nothing whatsoever and we really should have been taking some sort of lead into the dressing room, in fact we were absolutely dominant right up until we went one up, and then decided to sit back, which last proved suicidal! The Forfar equaliser was actually expected among the Hearts support, even although they did nothing to deserve one, but if you've followed Hearts in League Cup games as long as I have, then you just know we're going to make heavy weather of it, it's the way we seem to do it time and again, I really wish we'd put out our strongest side from the word go and just killed the tie off, rather than risking going out of one of only two pieces of silverware we actually have a chance of winning, we have a history of fucking it up in this comp! Fair play to Forfar for sticking in though and getting back into the game when it looked lost, and only a crazy challenge when already on a yellow swung it in our favour at the end as Forfar simply ran out of steam, and we very nearly did too! That tackle eight at the death was a shocker, I was practically 8 yards away from it and he tried his best to break the 16 year old lads leg, his facial expression when he went in, and the way he lunged, was just filthy as f**k, and he quite rightly received dogs abuse from the fans behind the goal, the man is a complete arsehole! The ref was shocking for both sides, it was never a penalty (or it was very very harsh), I counted 5 corners in the game that weren't corners, three for us and two for Forfar, some of the fouls he was blowing for were soft as shite for both sides, whilst letting harder fouls pass, he was a complete nightmare, but I think my favourite was when Hearts should have been awarded a second spot kick after he waved play on for a foul on the left wing, but then pulled it back for the initial foul on the left wing after playing on, completely shitting out of it, he's not going to be on international duty any time soon, that's for sure! Special mention for Rab Douglas, he was quite simply outstanding tonight and man of the match by a country mile! Age is creeping in though, he was struggling to kick the ball out, but his throws were phenomenal! His penalty save was a cracker too, and he pulled off a great double save at 1-0 to keep is team in the game.

  22. Duffy has been given plenty credit in the past few weeks, as have players like Kilday (who has actually looked a better player having stepped up a level). How much Stef makes up for his "deficiencies" is debatable though. I do love his work rate but he's going to have to do better in the final third if we want to "kick on" going forward. We did scrape up from League One last season - it took a comeback against 10 men in the last game of the season to do so. Stenny and/or Ayr should have finished off our title chances in either one of those absolutely dismal displays. But was Duffy did get quite a bit of credit for last season was the team spirit. The obvious worry was that team spirit alone wouldn't be enough, and it has been surprising that players like Kilday and Lamie are playing some of their best stuff after moving up a level. Credit where it's due though, we have a team that seem enthusiastic about what they're doing. And they seem like they want to work hard to achieve something. If we do achieve something this season then Duffy will deserve an awful lot of credit. I will wait till we actually win a league game to start getting carried away though. I seem to remember people getting carried away two years ago about a midfield with McKee and Hands before a proper ball was kicked...

  23. What's very amusing for long time P&Bers is that it wasn't that long ago that green bigot fans were bemoaning Strachan's achievements as he was just scraping by the likes of Man Utd and AC Milan in the Champions League, and doing so with too many Scottish players. The delight when this horrible reign of ... CL last 16 disappointments was brought to an end by the racist bigot Celtic fanbase was almost munchkinesque. Disappointingly those cretins have long scarpered, so can't be pointed at and laughed at - we are stuck with these Bigot Zero types instead.

  24. Plus 3 in the Killie stand. Took 3 & 3/4 hours to get there cos I made the mistake of taking the A71 due to an accident at Hermiston Gait. Advice for anyone travelling to Killie if we ever draw them again - you'd be better walking there with a sumo strapped to your back than taking the A71.Brutal road. As for the game, no question Killie deserved to win it. I was disappointed that Walters did'nt feature in goal after an impressive debut on Saturday, but Walker produced some brilliant saves including a miracle one to keep out a Boyd header. Colin Cameron was the second best keeper on the pitch. For all the doom amd gloom about Killie's hammering by Ross County, they played some good stuff last night. Impressed by No.14 and Slater. As for us,, we started really well and Killie had problems coping with the hard running of our front 3, Lavery, Henderson and particularly McKenna, but the softest of penalties - one that we just don't get awarded - changed the complexion of the game. Killie stepped up a gear and from that point dominated the rest of the half.The second period started slowly until Lavery scored a stunner, wriggling his way across the edge of the box before walloping a low left footer past the keeper. That was the cue for Killie to lay siege, and we eventually cracked, though Boyd was a mile offside when Slater finished their 3rd. Higginbotham rounded things off with a goal of the season contender. Despite the scoreline, we were neat and tidy throughout and the manager deserves credit for putting an attacking line-up on the park. Still not sure the midfield diamond makes th best use of Finn Graham, though I liked the way the wee man went for it last night - reminds me of Davy Watt with added skill. Dwayne Coultress had a superb opening half hour then faded from view. The manager played well again and got a generous round of applause from a sporting home crowd when he went off (as did Graham). It says much about his influence that we lost our defensive shape after he left the park. We need a long-term solution for that particular problem. We won't play teams of Killie's quality in the league, which is a relief, but I think we're good enough to make decent fist of the league campaign, unless we're playing East Fife. Would like to have seen a couple of extra bodies in before the deadline but looking unlikely now. Good luck to Killie in the next round.

  25. I want all Scottish teams to do well in Europe. Except Rangers and Celtic. 2 vile institutions who have far more resources than the rest of us. Celtic playing in Europe doesn't bring interest to the Scottish leagues, it brings interest to Celtic and Celtic only. What would bring interest to the Scottish top flight is someone else winning it, which would make world football news. It's absolutely laughable that you want Sevco and Hibs to be promoted to somehow improve results in Europe. Both of these teams ar shit and would get pumped rotten in Europe. You're totally deluded.

  27. Have to say how proud I was of Forfar last night. As many have pointed out Hearts were well on top in the first half and we struggled to keep the ball further forward. Templeman tried his hardest but was well marshalled by the centre backs and we couldn't always get support. Despite Hearts being well on top they never really had a clear cut opportunity in the half. A few decent efforts from far out or half chances but Rab dealt with everything well and I thought the defence were superb; well disciplined, won their challenges well and constantly closing down quickly. I think Mick Dunlop deserves praise as he's not featured too much and the last big macth he played against Ayr at the end of last season he was poor. Special mention must go to Michael Travis who won everything. Second half was still Hearts well on top and they did start creating better chances forcing Douglas into a great double save after they got in down our left. I was a bit far away for the penalty but what a save from Rab, and to get up to block the rebound was superb too. Pressure eventually told and Hearts scored a good goal and at that stage I thought they'd get another 2 or 3 but Rab Douglas obviously didn't think so. His save from the point blank Juanma header was unbelievable and he dealt with a few other attempts well; especially a drive from the edge of the box from I think McHattie. However we did start to come more into the game and started to get the ball into better spaces, especially out wide. The goal was a bit of strange onem one of those headers that just loops for ages and can go anywhere, fortunately for us it went in. At that stage Hearts were rattled and we had a great chance to win it when Denholm got in down the left but he didn't compose himself and skied it. Just after that he got himself sent off. I honestly can't remeber his first yellow and although I think there is a case to say it was a soft second yellow I can see why it was given as Hearts were on the break, it wasn't a bad foul but given they could have attacked I can see the refs thinking (not that I agreed with the refs thinking for the majority). For Extra Time we were out on our feet but still defended relatively well before the pressue finally told, I think the reaction of our players summed up how gutted we all were. From then Hearts were largely comfortable, although Malin in the second half of extra time did well to beat the right back and get into the box but much like Denholm earlier he lacked that bit of composure. There's no defedning Nicoll regardless of the frustration felt, it's so disappointing after the excellent shift he put in but the challenge was awful and he's actually lucky that he never caught the boy fully as it could have been a bad injury. I like the look of Nicoll but he does seem liable to an idiotic challenge which is not helpful to anybody. Class told in the end but I think we can hold our heads high and we've done ourselves proud. I think the young boys Hearts had out will learn from it and although some of them were quite winning and playing in a game like that will do them good. Their defence and Gomis strolled it. McHattie got up and down the pitch all game. Nicholson looked quality although he did drop in and out of the game and you could tell when Paterson came on that he was a different level than us. Good luck to them for the rest of the season. I've mentioned a few of the boys but think I need to praise Kerr Hay for the running he did, Foxy although not able to get involved as much as usual did still have a few great passes and was completely out of it at the end following his efforts and I thought Smith looked good going forwrad when he came on. Rab deserves another mention for 4 or 5 great and 1 incredible save. However, special praise must go to Brian Hodge who was superb in the middle of the park, he was the one player in midfield who really showed composure and didn't panic, he got us out of a few tight situations and some of his tackling was fantastic, I lost count of the amount of challenges where he was second favourite but emerged with the ball, he looks a superb find. So proud of my team overall and hope we can kick on in the league now.

  30. If Celtic want a more competitive league there are loads of ways they could help facilitate that - wage caps, gate money sharing or more even distribution of money, not hoovering up all the best players in the league etc. Of course the reality is Celtic only want a competitive league when they get gubbed in Europe so they have a way of deflecting their own failures because as we all know when something happens to Celtic it's ALWAYS someone elses fault.

  35. It just occurred to me that it will have been a year this week (Thursday morning) since George and Derek Adams got the sack. It's been a interesting year. Floundering at the bottom of the division, seemingly one disruptive season too many. What a run from 14 February to the end of the season, and County are still showing that they're competitive for mid-table, hopefully towards the upper end of that. Derek is doing well at Plymouth, winning three out of four league games. Graham Carey is playing very well as the number 10, Jake Jervis is thriving on the flank. I suspect that some of the defensive football in League 2 isn't as strong as the Premiership but good on them. Looking back at some of Derek's quotes immediately after the sacking is quite interesting. I suppose it means introducing The Ross County Foundation (I still don't fully know what it does, but it's a registered charity to help the community with a football flavour, and it keeps Stevie Ferguson busy). It probably also means having the Staggies Bar, which appears to be a success so far. I still fully appreciate what Messrs Adams gave Ross County. But the two appeared quite happy with their repeated short-termism (not just in playing but also coaching staff) and it just wasn't sustainable. Had they still been at the club last season, maybe County could have escaped but it would have taken further plundering of players of the ilk of Songo'o and Cikos - great players but who were never going to stay here long term. By the beginning of February I was convinced County were going down, but I felt things would have clicked under McIntyre and that they should have allowed him to follow through with rebuilding. Thankfully it didn't come to that. In the weeks leading up to this time last year, there was most definitely a dark cloud over the place. There was a negative atmosphere due to the boardroom friction and the fact that Adams's new crop of signings were mostly guff. Today, we can be genuinely optimistic about so many aspects. Derek was very professional indeed, with a great attention to detail, but the current management have been given the chance to better that. This time next year, hopefully, is a little more easy to predict, with the existing squad still remaining together and competing well. I look forward to seeing Jackson Irvine with another 40 games' experience. Will County be able to keep him? Liam Boyce has just been called up for the NI squad, will he make the Euros? I'd love to see that happen.
