  1. There's a lot of awful things on the internet, be it videos of horrific ISIS executions, pictures of cats, the use of .gifs by certain posters on here, the Guardian's "Comment is Free" section, or YouTube vloggers. However, nothing - absolutely nothing - is as fucking awful as Buzzfeed. Not a day goes by without someone retweeting a dreadful twee article about "63 Times The Girls Of Tumblr Were On Point" onto my Twitter timeline, or someone else shares "34 Reasons Why Gilmore Girls Should Have Been Set In Scotland". Case in point, this moment of peak Buzzfeed: The Story Of Egypt's Revolution In "Jurassic Park" Gifs Quite how Buzzfeed has become such a phenomenon, I'm not sure. Take a look at their front page and it's just folk taking tweets and reposting them. Or lists. Endless lists. Or quizzes about how we know what your spirit animal is. And Harry Potter references. So many Harry Potter references. Please, people of P&B, share your hatred of Buzzfeed here. Be it that Scottish woman's crusade to make as many lists about "18 Reasons You Should Move To Scotland Right Now" or Jamie Ross and his now outdated references to "Alex Salmond Solero". Or maybe this. Or maybe that. On the other hand, maybe you are a regular reader of Buzzfeed and enjoy their fresh content. Maybe their list of "life hacks" have helped you become a better person? Maybe you think, "Hey Yoda, shut up, I like the 'feed". Well you can join in as well, try and help me understand what I'm not quite getting (preferably in list form and with at least two references to times when Beyonce was fierce). c***s*. *Buzzfeed, not you.

  4. On the contrary, this looks good to go ahead. With no Rangers game on Tuesday night and the annual Cowdenbeath Incest-Fest cancelled, the stand behind the net will be open for second home game in a row to cope with the large following of die-hard Blue Brazil fans. The Cliftonhill Kop will give them a cracking view of Andy Barrowman's first-half hat-trick.

  8. My issue with the squad this year is that Bollan seems to have gone for quantity rather than quality. And whilst it's easy in hindsight, I, and a few others, said exactly this before we kicked a ball, that we seemed to have around 20 1st team players yet no actual strong starting 11. You could play any of our squad and I don't think it would strengthen or weaken the team much. If you look at how Ayr put their team together they hand picked positions that needed strenghtening and got the player for each position. We just seem to have signed a bunch of players with little plan. We have 3 right backs and no left backs. We have 3 wingers yet until November we played with, at most, one winger, often none. So why sign 3? Particularly when he likes to play Cox there, so almost 4 wingers. Cadden and Morton look identical players to me, one would have done. He signed Fitzpatrick, McBride and Smith who all play sitting midfield, again, 2 would have done. Creighton and Lithgow I think are decent signings, yet if one gets injured who have we got to play there? Once Lister is back we'll have 5 strikers, 6 if you include Sumsky who's neither here nor there. Complete overkill again. The squad just seems so unbalanced, some areas where we have loads of players (although still none that are any good), and other areas where we are really short - left back, attacking midfield. Instead of frittering away all this money on average squad filler could we not have just gone for a smaller good quality squad of 13-14 players, a few youths and a couple of loanees of needed?

  9. What the f**k am I reading from some Dees recently? If we'd finished 10th last season we'd have been more than happy with our current position, but because we just finished 6th we should be pushing on for Europe? Stop having unrealistic expectations and remember where we've been languishing in our recent history FFS.

  12. Surprised at this. Will have to wait and see how he fares, re: pedigree vs. whythefuckishenotsignedwithanyonelseyet. Potentially exactly what we need on the defensive side of things. Same kinda goes for Eiji. Strange times are afoot when there's an experienced and well-travelled brick shithouse international defender and 70+ capped unhinged Japanese keeper at one end, and a part-time ginger plumber labrador at the other end.

  14. I was watching this with my kids, and when Clara took on the tattoo I mumbled "well, she'll be brown bread soon enough". I knew this was her last episode. Then comes the emotional bit - where all of you got to feel sad and cried. This was denied to me by my 5 year old daughter asking loudly "When is she turning in to a slice of brown bread?" Wee soul had been sitting, watching, waiting for that to happen.

  15. I've just about thawed out from Saturday. Not a great game but I think we were a bit better than the Cowden game a few weeks back. Expected us to push on after we took the lead but Rovers scored an absolute peach of an equaliser. Thought they had the better of the half after that. Second half was mostly us dominating the ball and Rovers looking dangerous on the break. Was half expecting to see them nab a late winner but I certainly don't feel we deserved to lose. That being said, we didn't create enough chances to say we definitely should have won. A disappointing result though and we lose further ground on Ayr, who have continued their superb run. Pars fans seemed very restless at the game. Slack passing was met with a very hostile reaction and you'd have thought we were in a relegation battle with how angry some folk were getting. Faissal seems to be getting a bit of stick as well and while he's certainly off the boil at the moment, it's a tad harsh. The guys are clearly all trying hard and we're still picking up points despite not playing all that well. Hopefully it's just a small blip and we can get back to our best at Ayr on the 12th December.

  17. £1000 per month when you have dependants isn't very much. Let's look at rent, probably £300 a month per head, bare minimum in an urban area. If you live alone, could be £500-600. Then council tax, typically £130-150 a month. Then electricity/gas, typically £50-60 a month. Then transport costs, about £40 a month per person on public transport. Probably at least the same when running a car if not more. That's bare minimum. We are talking £740 a month just to have a roof over your head. Then you've got to clothe yourself. Let's allow £40 a month for that, which gets you two pairs of shoes a year, 4 or 5 jumpers, 3-4 pairs of jeans, underwear and maybe a suit, 2-3 shirts and some t-shirts. That's you up to just shy of £800. Even if you're spending £50 a week on food, the minimum wage only just gives you a fairly rudimentary standard of living. If you have a dependent you have £4 for food per day. If you have a child who has a school dinner and you buy a coffee on the way to work, you have about £1.50 per head to provide breakfast and dinner. I'm no economist, but that doesn't exactly sound like Ubiquitous Chip. Let's say your washing machine breaks down. This has happened to me twice before. To have a handy-man come out to look at it, and fix a relatively common fault, you're probably paying about £80-90. Or say the heating element goes on your cooker. Likewise. Let's say your car's clutch fails on your way to work. £300. The last time I checked, joiners and garages don't tend to do credit as a matter of course in their businesses. You need to stop talking down the lives of others. You're showing yourself up as a really unpleasant individual.

  19. You could put Sir Alex near it, we're fucked from the core. We've chucked player after player at it and ruined anyone who was half decent. Anyone who looked like having a bit of talent couldn't get away quick enough. Wilkie to EF, Easton going to Elgin. It just goes to show how much players think of the club for me. We must have an utterly w**k reputation. Having listened to the TellHimHesPele podcasts with numerous lower league players it's clear the club isn't fancied by anyone half decent anymore and judging by what they say about their experiences at other clubs, I wouldn't be surprised if we lack on every front when it comes to the 'little things' that make all the difference. There are lads like Trouten, Kettlewell etc who still love QP because, despite their amateur status and players not being paid, the players were looked after in every other way possible and it was ran so professionally during their time there. To me though, if you sign for Berwick it seems as simple as get your tracksuit, get your comps sorted, check your wage is in monthly and otherwise it's just training twice a week and playing on a Saturday. Because there's nothing to make them feel valued, it soon seems a chore to some. And that leads to worse. Last seasons best moment was preempted by players try rob the club for an extra bonus simply for turning up for a game which should be enjoyed as a career highlight, not a chance to make a few extra quid. But is it their fault? Arguably in some part. They should be able to motivate themselves to do better. But the way the club is run, as stuck in the past as it is, there is f**k all to invest into. For players or fans. And until that is sorted, we'll be as shit as we've been the last eight years. When you breed a culture of monetary obsession (or an obsession of any other than results at a football club for that matter), do you have the right to be annoyed when the priority of the players appears to shift or the motivation declines? That's maybe more applicable to last season's squad, but it's clear plenty of this season's are falling into the same trap of having nothing to fight for.

  24. Makes wild predictions. Claims he'll be around to see them through. Made a complete shambles of himself mistaking a post of Tedi's for mine and disappeared for a week. Returned and doesn't have the balls to apologise. I'm going to guess, if Rangers fall flat on their face, you'll be nowhere to be seen. What's worse Martin? Being ridiculed by P&Ds on here, or being ridiculed by Rangers fans on RM?

  36. ... or just don't buy the f***ing thing. Best keep with the growing trend of buying the retro varieties. ~75% reduction in sales will send them a good message for the future. As with previous comments, I absolutely agree with those saying that the white sleeves are an abomination and that the away strip looks like a cheap training top (of the £7.99 variety with an imitation crest sewn on to somehow justify a retail price of £55). Down with this sort of thing.

  45. I take the point that if you work down through the tiers in a hypothetical fully integrated system with a two way split the whole way down, that difference in number of teams and therefore strength in depth would end up with a Lowland tier 9 that's stronger than a Highland tier 6 or something like that, but does that mean that tier 5 has to be split three ways? Surely you could have one Lowland League at tier 5 covering the same region it does now, then have an East and West split at tier 6 feeding into the Lowland League? If we're talking about 16 teams in the Lowland League, then you could have three relegated with the Champions of East and West being promoted automatically plus a play-off between the runners-up of each for the third place. That way, rather than having a three way split at tier 5 with teams playing in a West or East Region league then jumping straight to a national tier 4, you have a halfway point of gradually less regionalisation as you work your way up, giving time to adjust to the requirements and costs of longer trips. Of course, the tier 6 leagues in the Lowlands would still be stronger than tier 6 in the Highlands, but that would do a lot more to balance it out and make it much of less of a problem.
