  1. We're 8 games unbeaten and won 2-0 last night, having had the worst full time team in Scottish football history less than three months ago. With all due respect, shut it.

  2. Ah, the “true fan” trope. If you don’t agree with me, you’re not a true fan. If you don’t go to Dingwall on Tuesday, you’re not a true fan. If you weren’t at Clydebank in 19canteen, you’re not a true fan. As for the rest, correct me if I missed something, but we saw the game out didn’t we? There was a miserable arsehole sitting at the back of the south stand, waving his fist under the nose of the guy sitting two along from him, because the second guy was happy to see us play out 2-0. It was you wasn’t it? Truly, our fans are only happy when they’ve got something to whinge about (and yes I get the irony). Stick to posting comments on Daily Mail articles next time, you’ll be more at home there.

  3. Thanks again for the comments and the feedback. It's always interesting to read what we can do better going forward. I'd probably agree with the comments about the Alternative Timelines section about Albion Rovers and the Scottish Cup - it was brilliant fun to record and seemed to flow very well but it missed the mark on the show itself and came across as self-indulgent. Nevertheless, there's some great stuff coming up in episode three and I hope to see you all there!

  10. I can't believe the negativity from some Arbroath supporters! Absolute fucking mental that people are spitting the dummy oot and criticising DC and members of the team! Get a grip o yourselves, get another 3-4 wins and enjoy the league winning celebrations! I'm pretty sure every Arbroath supporter would have been delighted to be in your current position with 10 games to go before a ball had been kicked!

  12. Watched both episodes back to back last night. Safechuck and Wade were both pretty convincing. It's also pretty disgusting that a number of people in Jackson's circle of friends, family and employees were turning a blind eye to this. After reading social media, another thing I've taken from this is that Jackson's fanbase are worse than the old firm's.

  14. Absolutely, there is so much misunderstanding out there. I can't repeat it often enough, nothing will change for 62 of the 63 teams in the West Region. Absolutely nothing. There is nothing to fear in joining the pyramid, only positives and opportunities to gain.

  18. True but the SoS primarily caters to a large and relatively remote area that other leagues for the most part (yes I know about Kello) don't have a presence in and probably have no huge desire to start traveling to. They have their niche in other words and most seasons won't have a licensed champion making their tier 6 status a non-issue. Meanwhile the problem the SJFA has is that the North region don't seem to care about being in the pyramid, and the East region may be about to vote in a return to a three way district feeder format that is clearly better suited for feeding into the EoS rather than the LL. At that point how does Tom Johnston maintain the posture that all three regions need to join at the same time at tier 6 when it's only really the West region that both wants to and deserves to?

  25. But the vote was for the full juniors to go in to the pyramid not only one region so he is insisting as he is carrying out the will of the clubs. Anything other than that goes against the vote and there would have to be a new vote due to the material change. The outcome may be different in that case. The junior clubs voted on mass to go. It is not up for a region to decide to go against the will of all clubs. If that is the case then it would be far better to create a set up in the west and let clubs move who want to. To have a situation where you will have the west juniors in the pyramid, the east juniors maybe in the pyramid but the north juniors not in is ridiculous and will make a mockery.

  26. Being docked 4 points was always going to have an effect on their performance yesterday. They've been busting a gut all season and to find out the title challenge was taking out their hands was always going to massively demoralising. The timing of the announcement wasn't great either . The morning of a long trek for an away game. Wasn't surprised that we lost. It is a hard working squad we've got and we've got plenty of time and games to get focused for the play offs.

  27. I genuinely thought Nish was severely underrated and was very good for us most of the time. You could tell he had good footballing intelligence. I still, however, really don’t rate Gallagher. What I will say is that he puts in a hell of a shift every week. Despite this though his first touch is absolutely brutal to watch and the fact that he can’t run in behind or hold the ball up is annoying. Occasionally he’ll produce a very smart bit of play, like the headed flick on for the first goal at East Fife. IMO I’d prefer Armour or Melingui ahead of him.

  28. Hopefully grimmy contract has a clause inserted in it that he has to go on at least one marauding run from full back each game. The contrast between Gboly`s trickery and Grimshaw just running full pelt towards the goal is brilliant. Hastie and frear fit nicely in between the two. Grimshaw reminds me of one of those toy cars you got when you were wee that you pulled it back a few times and then let it go before it flew forward at increasing speed in a straight line crashing through everything in its way but usually missing the area you were actually aiming for.

  29. You're misinterpreting by taking the Alan Cochrane line: routinely – and intentionally – dropping the word “opportunity” when you can in your posts, so “once in a generation” sounds more like a pledge than what it was: a call to recognise the significant opportunity of the Independence Referendum. Politicians and activists use the “once in a generation” line all the time, without expecting it to be taken literally. It would be chaos if it was. Earlier this year, ‘once in a generation opportunity’ was applied to the prospect of rail nationalisation under Labour. Twelve months ago it referred to the call for a progressive alliance at the next general election. A decade ago the Government described its London Olympic bid as a "once-in-a-lifetime economic opportunity", quietly ignoring the UK's bids to host the previous three Olympics. Should these statements disallow nationalisation or cross-party alliances again until our kids have grown up? Should the UK Government abandon its plans for the 2036 Olympics on the basis of what it said before? Should we be blocked from voting on membership of Europe because that referendum was described as ‘once-in-a-lifetime’ by the then-Chancellor? No reasonable person would claim that. And even if these statements were commitments, you can't advocate tying the hands of future voters. It's a tenet of democracy that people can change their minds – it’s why we have general elections – and if they do so in one year or twenty that’s up to them. If the argument is that people haven’t changed their minds, that’s another thing – let’s argue about the SNP’s manifesto and mandate – but denying the right to a referendum for some indeterminate period on such a disingenuous line is unsupportable.

  30. Out of interest, would people have considered awarding the opposition a 3-0 win fair if, say, the ineligible player had scored 2 goals in a 2-1 victory?? Its a massive grey area. Does it matter how many minutes he plays? How well he played? Whether he scored or set up a goal or did any goal line clearances? I think none of that stuff should matter because it’s a huge can of worms. But I think there needs to be published guidelines so it doesn’t look like punishments are being made up on the spot. Maybe there are already rules on what to do and they’ve been followed, but like others I seriously doubt the same punishment would be handed out to, say, Rangers if they’d made this mistake.

  31. There is a meeting on Tuesday and opinion c no change is the one that would be a disaster. And from only my own point of view I dont see any other option then to apply for EOS. Tuesday is a big night and it needs to be decided then to allow clubs to decide their clubs future existence before deadlines have passed with other options

  34. They have no power to stop them but there is no league for them to move too. The clubs would be required to set up their own league under the auspices of the SFA but no west club looks like wanting to take the lead for this and also their is no guarantee that SFA would accept them as my take from the minutes that have been put on this site is that the SFA favours the SJFA coming into the pyramid. I just want a firm decision on what is happening. Clubs need to start preparing for next season and if has been mooted the west will start early next season to make sure their ready in time for the play offs, then clubs need to start planning ground maintenance, pre season etc.

  35. I'm not sure why not, as nothing will change for 62 of the 63 teams. The West Region teams have absolutely nothing to lose by joining the pyramid en masse.

  36. I'm away to sound like a dick here, but I'm glad that this incident and the one in the Midlands Derby happened today. I'm obviously not condoning it as it's fucking appalling behaviour, but too many people were tarring it as a Scotland problem and how it was only our fans that had a scumball element. This is a football issue. Not a Scottish football issue. (Unless it's sectarian led)

  37. That first half was probably the most one sided half of football I’ve seen at Fir Park in some time. Edinburgh City put up more of a fight when we put 5 past them in the League Cup at the start of the season. If not for some poor finishing and decision making at times, Accies would /should have been on the end of similar if not heavier scoreline. He won’t grab the headlines but I thought big Ally Gorrin was tremendous yet again and was the catalyst for a dominant midfield display alongside the rejuvenated Campbell and the ever impressive Turnbull. Get him signed up pronto and we will have an excellent midfield for Robinson to build round next season. Going forward- watching Aribiyi, Hastie and Turnbull in full flight is great fun. Like watching a different sport from what we were being forced to sit through before the winter break. The defence and Gillespie had the cigars out for the most part but that was their 5th clean sheet in 8 games so kudos to them as well. Another really enjoyable game yesterday, the only minor gripe was that it wasn’t the 5 or 6 in the end that it undoubtedly could have been had we taken more of our chances.

  39. Week 10 update Bags o' death this week, several featured in the Dead Pool, many more not. Which is the same as any other week, I suppose. First up was former Rangers and Scotland captain, Eric Caldow. Obituary: https://www.scotsman.com/news/obituaries/obituary-eric-caldow-rangers-and-scotland-full-back-a-gentleman-of-the-game-who-was-never-booked-1-4885138 (this isn't UK-wide but it's the best one I've found). Here is a video of him scoring a penalty against England: On a somewhat related note, look at that thumbnail. Any time I see footage of football from this time I never understand how the stadiums worked. Seas of humanity that look more like something from Dante than a crowd at a football ground. My youtube suggestions have been filled with stuff from this time since I looked up that video stole that video from Eednud in the Rangers thread, and I'd strongly suggest you have a look yourself. Caldow was a Solo Shot for @ICTJohnboy. He died at 84, yielding 41 Base Points plus 50 for the Solo Shot, for a total of 91. The second death this week was actor Jan-Michael Vincent, who didn't actually die this week: https://www.theguardian.com/film/2019/mar/09/jan-michael-vincent-airwolf-and-big-wednesday-actor-dies-aged-73 I have never heard of him or anything he's been in, but it sounds like he led quite the life. Vincent was a solo shot for @alta-pete. He died at 73, for 52 Base Points. An extra 50 for the Solo Shot brings his total to 102. As a result, the scores now look like this: 1. alta-pete 399 2.

  40. Inverness were top of the group on 9 points. Hearts were second on 8 points. The final group match was between the two at Tynecastle and was scheduled for live coverage by BT Sport. In the week prior to the game, the authorities decided a 2 point deduction for Hearts was the appropriate punishment for fielding an ineligible player. That and a fine of £10,000 though £8000 of that was suspended til the following season. A completely arbitrary punishment which seemed a bit odd considering they gained 3 points for the win in the game where they fielded the unregistered player. (He came on as a sub after 65 minutes in a 2-1 win at Cove Rangers). The uncanny thing about it all was that it meant Hearts could still go through on goal difference if they beat Inverness. Whereas if the normal 3 point deduction had been applied then Hearts were out the competition, and the live BT Sport game would be a dead rubber. Nothing to see here, move along.

  43. Well Well, would you believe it, shitty little Elgin City, a nothing club, managed to beat the mighty Clyde. It was the points deduction, imagine the mighty club making such a mistake, it was the pitch, the wind, a penalty that wisna given! Got to love it, you dinna half set yourself up! David W not getting at you always find your comments on games well balanced unlike some others.
