  1. Alright, I've got periscope downloaded and am prepared to stream the game from the Derry. My username is @RawB93, follow me now so you can find the stream at the time of broadcast. I'll do a dummy run before kick off and seek feedback in this thread to make sure it's working alright.

  2. 11 of the fuckers living in a flat The mother and father are a pair of roasters; he doesn't seem to work, wanders about in his bunnet and a ridiculous 'tache; she spends her whole time cooking and cleaning for the other ten. Four adult kids living at home. One boy is an ugly streak of piss who can never get a girlfriend, other adult son is a ned who thinks he's god's gift. The two adult daughters are also an odd couple; one is short, fat, and ugly, the other is a "wid" As well as the adult kids there are 4 younger ones. Specky know-it-all teenager, twins who spend their life causing trouble and a toddler with a speech impediment. To top it off the grandfather lives with them. Boring old b*****d with the full Santa Claus beard constantly wreathed in pipe smoke. The lot of them are always up to various japes and capers, all carried out in some sort of jakey, made-up dialect. Only time I get any peace is when they all f**k off to some two-room shack in the Highlands for a couple of weeks each summer.

  3. That's the one. A beautiful through ball, after he'd danced through their midfield. The irony being we had to sell Harkins to pay our tax bill.

  4. I was too. However when it was brought up to Kenny MacIntyre on Twitter he admitted that he hadn't even of heard the story, which is pretty poor from a journalist who should be doing his research. Calderwood is a fantasist, and his version of events now don't match up with what happened at the time. For example: on the Sportsound interview he claims that he went to Spain to await a job offer from Killie that eventually never came. He then apparently received a phone call from a journalist to say that we were to appoint Mixu the next day and that's the first he'd heard from the club. At the time though, he claimed that he turned the Killie job down because of financial constraints: "To be honest, it was more to do with the budget and Sandy offering to leave. To have a fighting chance of making the top half of the table, the budget wasn't enough. It would have made it very difficult to take the club to the next level." Mixu Paatelainen then led us to the top six, and Kenny Shiels won the cup the following year - both after more budget cuts. His win record at Killie was terrible too. When he took over we were in eleventh place, one point ahead of Falkirk. The results from Calderwood taking over until the end of the season were: P- 19, W- 5, D- 4, L- 11. The truth is we were saved by Falkirk's incompetence rather than anything Calderwood did. We finished the season eleventh place, two points ahead of Falkirk... We also scored three away goals during his whole time at Killie. Three. The fact he is lauded with saving Killie is laughable, considering almost any competent manager would have done the same. I'd even argue that Jefferies probably would have too had he stayed. His little anecdote about being at Fowler's do' and the Killie fans being all over him and egging him on to shout at the chairman is bollocks too. I was there, and he was going about telling anyone that would listen how "Emeranka widnae get in the team I was playing to build here" and other nonsense. He was a laughing stock for the entire night. I'm sure the County fans will confirm this too, but he supposedly only travelled up to Dingwall on Saturdays and his brother took most of the training, and that was as big a reason as any why he didn't stay. The O'Leary stuff alone should mean he never works again.

  5. Thank you Mr K.T, god speed my friend. Once you pump us I truly hope you draw at Ibrox and install a plastic pitch for the return leg, resulting in Warburton sustaining cruciate ligament damage due to his brogues getting caught in the turf.

  7. Can we not change the thread tittle to 'Celtic are shite under Ronny Deila and are just managing to stay ahead of Aberdeen despite having a budget 10 times their size and I long for the good old days'? OK I know it's a bit long but it would be more pertinent.

  8. No. You'll miss out on the opportunity to see unusual teams playing at a major tournament, and big names taking an unexpected scudding at the hands of minnows. Ah, wait, you're a Celtic fan. Sorry, carry on.

  11. On another note, I'd like to make a comparison between the poisonous away days at Dundee United and tonight's experience whilst walking back towards the subway from Firhill. You don't feel particularly intimidated when surrounded by opposition fans who are carrying fine-art cushions.

  13. That must be about the 5th or 6th game this season we've been average at best in the first half then been miles better in the second, would save a lot of hassle if Thistle could let me know in advance. To say Nesbitt was better than Welsh would be damning him with faint praise, but he was good. Clearly has excellent technique and a burst of pace, certainly looked better in the middle then on the left, but did get outmuscled quite a lot as you'd expect, tried a few first time flicks that didn't come off and his pish corner / miscontrol for a throw combo was the worst thing any of our players did all night. Solid 7/10 performance but let's not go making him the Scottish Messi just yet. I said at HT you know it's a poor game when Christie Elliott is your best player but he was excellent all game, deserved MOM for me. I've been waiting all season for Amoo to score that type of goal, dunno whether it's a confidence issue but he really doesn't use his pace to attack defences enough. St Johnstone just looked a bit devoid of confidence, suppose the injuries didn't help but it seems as if Davidson has been clattering into challenges and injuring himself for years on end now. The big Bulgarian lad looked cumbersome, but I thought they had the best of the midfield up until we scored. I expect a fairly tight game next week but if we win twice in Perth in one season, that's surely the beginning of the Rapture or some shit like that. Final mention for John Beaton- still my least favourite ref, at least Collum might give one of his brain fart decisions in your favour, Beaton just gives foul upon foul upon foul. Half the time he doesn't bother to indicate whether he's given a foul or not, didn't even indicate the full time whistle

  14. The same one who sent a beautiful ball through for Damon Gray to score against the old Rangers... #EBTMEMORIES have probably clouded most of the usual suspect's recollection.

  15. Right troops. I'm gonna stream the game tonight on periscope for those who can't make it (and indeed anyone who fancies watching). I'm just about on the halfway line in the Derry, so hopefully it's decent enough coverage. Check the Dundee v Dumbarton thread for updates.

  19. When he realised it would get him more airtime and media attention. That is all. That is literally his raison d'être. He survives on the oxygen of publicity, not for any cause or beliefs, but because it keeps him going. This is essentially Galloway: It's all rather desperate and tragic - like seeing a hideous old prostitute try and ply her trade long after her glory days are decades behind her and the last john decided having a w**k was preferable.

  23. FWIW, I think the most damning evidence of beastliness is being able to specify pockets for the various belongings that you carry about with you. All this, "keys pocket x, change pocket y, wallet in position a, over notes position b both in pocket z" chat belies the type of meticulous mind that keeps note of the opening and closing times and locations of all primary and secondary schools within a 5 mile radius, and probably comes in useful when trying to keep one step ahead of operation yewtree or similar.

  25. In fairness I think I could name a good few of those or at the very least recognise 100% of the names if I heard them. Are you telling me you've never heard of a man who captains one of the top sides in the Scottish Premiership? Once again, a rangers fan with his head in the sand. Do you just watch your 9 in a row VHS tapes and pretend you are still relevant? You'll be sorry to hear your team is as relevant in modern society as a VHS. Now f**k off.

  26. The Daily Rebel are just as bad for making a 'story' out of what Harkins said. Nothing changes in the coverage of our game by these rags, pathetic wee digs are reported as headline sports news, just absolute f*ckin shite! Who buys this drivel?

  27. Just had a read through the first few "comments" on the story. Interesting. If we beat Dumbarton Harkins should come off the team bus at Ibrox dressed as The Pope.

  29. I had poisoned a rat in a womans house and it must have died lying on a hot pipe under the floor because the smell in the house was putrid. Worse was to come though as a couple weeks later her house was full of hundreds of bluebottles. In my own house i had rats (in the kitchen) and we were woken to SNAP of one of the traps under the sink.followed by a scraping and banging. The missus says are you going out to sort it out but i said just give it a few seconds and it'll stop. Didn't stop. I went out, pulled off the kick board and thing was trying to get through a hole with my my big trap stuck to its paw. When it saw me it started doing somersaults and sreaming like a human baby. It was biting out in every direction at cables plasterboard and the trap even its own leg. I put the oven gloves on and batted it out into the middle of the kitchen floor and axed it in half in garden. The missus moved in to her mums with the boy for 4 days and i had some great peace. Those squeals though.

  30. It's annoying when they go on about how Barca and other foreign teams have such an easy domestic league, if only the likes of Villa and Sunderland were in La Liga to challenge them on a weekly basis.

  32. I've always felt the West was stronger, higher population, bigger player pool etc. Don't think there's a huge gap but Rose got well and truly rogered by Pollok on the day. First time I've seen Bonnyrigg this season but actually seen Pollok 3 times. Got beat 3-1 by Arthurlie early on, then beat Peasy 5-1. Also saw Talbot beat Nitten 5-0 pre-season but thought there wasn't much in it for about an hour. Then Miller the Nitten manager substituted pretty much the whole back 4 if I remember. The Nitten fans around me were fuming.

  33. The Financial Conduct Authority has fined broker and wealth management firm WH Ireland £1.2m for not having the right systems in place to prevent market abuse. It has also been stopped from taking on new clients for 72 days. The FCA said the company had failed to act on previous advice and had not put controls in to prevent or detect insider trading.

  38. 1. Gordon Love - CM 03: The obligatory 'take your own team as far as you can game' with East Fife. Lovey was a pacy right winger whose overall stats frankly made him out of his depth as soon as we made the step up to the second division. But his performances kept him in the team long after the initial 'dross' had been moved on to make way for 'big ticket' signings like Stevie Craig. Lovey really came into his own once we got into the SPL though. He went on a run of about 15 games where he'd score precisely 1 goal every single game. An absolute legend who kept us up in that crucial 1st season and laid the foundations for the title wins and Champions League forays to come. 2. Edin Dzeko - FM 11: You could get him for relatively cheap if you were a decent team at the start of the game. I went Spurs and he was a must buy. He spear-headed my 4-1-2-2-1, bulldozing all opposition he faced. With Luka Modric providing the trickery in behind and Aaron Lennon under strict instructions to get the head down, head for the line and cut it back every time he got the ball, Dzeko had a fucking field day. 3. Taribo West CM 03: Like Dzeko, if you were a tier 2 type team, big Taribo was a relatively cheap option who'd instantly improve your squad. He could play anywhere across the back or as a holding mid. He was fucking mental though. For every few commanding defensive performances, he'd have a game where he ended up breaking some guy's legs, giving away a penalty and being sent off within the first 5 minutes. 4. Oliver Kahn - CM 04: He wasn't even my player but I was Dortmund manager and my friend was Bayern manager. We took CM very seriously. My pal got to the Champions League final in his second season and faced Real Madrid. It was a pretty tight affair, 0-0 going into the last 10 minutes. Lucio makes a fairly innocuous back pass to Kahn from about 30 yards. As the ball is rolling towards him, the stationary Oliver Kahn randomly breaks his leg and crumples to the ground, letting the ball pass through him and into the net. Bayern lose 1-0 and my pal went into one of the most glorious rages I'ver ever witnessed. Thank you Oliver. 5. The Dunfermline chairman - CM 04: After a few successful seasons at Kilmarnock, I thought I'd declare my interest in the vacant Dunfermline job, for a laugh. After Dunfermline thought I was interested, they refused to hire another manager and decided to hold out for me indefinitely, losing every player they had due to nobody being there to re-sign them and plummeting down the leagues. They ended up perpetually fielding sides made entirely of 'fake' u-18s and would finish every season bottom of the 3rd division with 1 or 2 points to their name, still hoping that I'd rekindle my interest in the job and lead them to glory.

  39. Just bought my old man a pair of these for his Christmas after I caught him wearing a pair of Lonsdales. Fucking Lonsdales, the man runs his own IFA business and he's swanning about it Lonsdales. Idiot.
