  1. Off the field he was an absolute gentlemen and one of the nicest people I’ve met. My parents met him at an awards night one year and both said he was fantastic and spoke all night. My Mum thought he was genuinely a good guy and he became her favourite player for this reason (her not knowing anything about football). When she died a few years back, Bobby found out and got in touch. He donated to the charity for her and signed his match top which she had for years and went with her as she treasured it. Not the best keeper by any stretch but a thoroughly decent guy that we’ll never have a bad word to say about him.

  2. Devi Sridhar, 22 October 2021. https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2021/oct/22/britain-control-covid-winter-lockdown-plan-b-vaccine-certification-masks Germany, just four weeks later: Another catastrophic L for Sridhar then. It's far past time that clowns like her were held responsible for their bogus claims and punted to the dole queue.

  3. Amazing and quite, quite satisfying to see people still raging at the fact the FM did nothing wrong and their w**k fantasies crumbled to so much dust. Odd and rather revealing that these types would play whataboutery with what is unarguably some of the most vile corruption in UK history, exploiting the worst crisis since the second world war to empty the treasury into the pockets of their friends for kit that didn't work and which certainly was paid for in lives as well as billions of pounds, for a cheap and futile shot at The Boss which only served to expose their twisted, tawdry and corrosively bitter selves.

  5. Related to the last couple of pages is a story with the most magnificent piece of shithousery I’ve ever seen. Old Uncle John lived in his ex-council house in Grangemouth just about all his life. Getting past 70 and with concerns about his mobility, the Council were arranged to install a couple of grab rails, an extra handrail on the stair that sort of thing. Boy from the Council turns up to do the jobs and old Uncle, being that sort of auld guy, follows him all round the house offering a commentary ‘you sure you know what you’re doing son?’, ‘hmm, don’t think I’d be doing it like that’, etc, you get the score. Anyway, having been in the Merchant Navy as a boy, John had profound hearing issues and constantly complained about his hearing aids. Fast forward several years and he’s complaining about a constant beeping in the house that’s keeping him awake all night. Everyone tells him he’s imagining it but no, he insists it’s real and it’s there. Anyway, we give in and investigate and indeed there is a beeping. Best guess we’ve got is the joiner from the Council had got fed up with the constant critique on his work, lifted a floorboard, dropped in a new smoke alarm and waited 3 years for it to run down and wreak its cold heartless revenge on him.

  7. Well, yeah. But Swinney is suggesting this 'proof' AND vaccine passports may be required to be allowed to go to the pub etc. This, while ultimately making little difference to just a vaccine passport as things stand (for the reasons you stated) will still put people off going because of the hassle. You may not need to take the test to register a result, but you still need to have the testing kit available. This in turn will lead to reductions in business income and associated job losses. For no benefit. To me that's unacceptable. The SNP have an infuriating habit of doing things they see other countries doing, without considering why they are doing them and whether they are appropriate here. Their apparant obsession with not wanting to look like they care less than anyone at all is wearing incredibly thin.

  8. If he makes a conscious decision not to get vaccinated despite all the official messaging over the last 11 months then I have little sympathy for him. I support his right not to be vaccinated but he has to live with the consequences of is decision.

  9. I feel really sorry for you that you missed the Serbia game, I hope whatever prior engagement caused you to miss our nation's biggest footballing moment in the last 20 years was worth it. In terms of never missing Jack, he would very clearly have been an improvement on Armstrong against both the Czechs and Croatia in the summer.

  15. I went a Chinese buffet about 4.30 one day, when I was working away. The more expensive package started at 5.00. The staff were a bit short about me only paying £5.95 instead of £11.95 and said I must have eaten and be out by 5.00. I've never eaten so much, so quickly. I was an absolute pig, so much so, I had to retire to bed and couldn't move the rest of the night. I had meat sweats and never shat for about 2 days, but when I did I was in the bog for hours trying to pass this sideways brick like shite. It's making me ill thinking about it.

  19. Worked at the Club during Bobby`s spell there and can confirm everything you`ve said. Really nice, unassuming and friendly guy. The players called him "Inspector gadget" as he was always into the latest tech. As part of that, he got interested in photography. After a game at Pittodrie, he walked down to where I was sitting on the team bus just as it left and started enquiring about cameras. When the bus pulled in to the Stadium 2 hours later, he was still standing there asking questions!!

  25. Just to follow up on what I said before re my thoughts on why the divergence of measures between Scotland and England..... If cases in England are dropping yet again, it begs a review of the FMs "not a minute longer than neccessary" chat. Its fast becoming apparent that the spread of the virus cannot be controlled by anything short of locking everyone in their homes again. Its also becoming apparent that this isn't actually neccessary and has been so ever since vaccine coverage in the priority groups was reached. A refusal to acknowledge the decreasong of ability/neccessity of controlling this virus is PURELY political and hence, we are now, IMO squarely in longer than beccessary territory.

  27. I think you have a weird dislike of Ryan Jack for some reason, as he obviously played very well in the Serbia game. Either that or football’s just not for you, because if you’re seriously arguing that Jack wouldn’t even get in the squad then you’re a total moron.

Again - World Cup Qualification - nobody gives a f**k about the weather! 3. Most of us are hoping to get the shitest opponents possible - they're not the selling point FFS.

  38. Positives: Ross Wilson was allowed to do his job and didn't have one of the Parks, John Bennett or Stuart Gibson overruling him. That's important because directors can get a wee bit trigger happy, so credit to them for trusting the process and letting it play out. It's going to be pretty much the same style of play that we're used to and we've built the squad for. I expect that a lot of the control and positives that we enjoyed under Gerrard will be maintained. Should hopefully see more out of the forwards than we have recently - I think this style of play will be really good for Ryan Kent and Ianis Hagi. Also think you'll see more goals from midfield than we ever did under Gerrard, and better attacking play in general. GVB won't be afraid to throw numbers forward to break a low block, which leads to... Negatives: I think we'll be worse defensively than we were under Gerrard - more susceptible to counter attacks as he won't be as dogmatic about shape as the previous management team were. Still to see who in that backroom team is replacing Beale, though obviously I know next to nothing about them yet. But none really jump out as tactical experts. Also need a set piece specialist because we don't currently have one and none have been rumoured. Ultimately though, this signals the beginning of a transitional period for us. The squad will have reached the end of its shelf-life by the summer, and we'll probably see a lot of big names and characters (Davis, McGregor, Goldson, Arfield, Morelos, Kent) leave. So I'm expecting no or limited business in January and a shedload in the summer. His success will likely be defined by the business done then, because until then all he has to do is beat an obese Australian with no squad depth. But this appointment is what it's supposed to look like when you have a Sporting Director - the manager becomes plug-and-play, the system doesn't really change and continuity is maintained. Wilson comes out of this looking pretty good regardless of how GVB fares as manager, because the process and logic are spot on. I predict that much of what made Gerrard's teams good will still be recognisable under GVB, and much of what made them vulnerable will also still be there. At least until the summer, anyway.

  39. I mean its just the latest in a long line of things Leitch has said or done which should be a resigning issue, he’s the Duke of Edinburgh of the Scottish Government with the gaffes. You’d think someone who’s supposed to be trained in reassuring people and being compassionate wouldn’t be so absolutely awful at it.

  40. Simon Kjaer is one of the world's best centre backs and he barely put a foot wrong the other night. If anything, watching the highlights, he might have been the Dane's best player. Yet he was still absolutely fucking owned by Ché Adams. This wisnae a case of an off-night for Denmark. They were jist fucking telt. Magic.
