  3. I was thinking earlier in the week that around this time 10 years ago I was struggling massively. I have come back a decade later to answer this question - yes, I was lucky. I thought that life was not worth living anymore, and that I had wasted my chances to become better than what I was. That was not true. There are too many things to list that I would have missed out on if I had not been prevented from hanging myself by a complete stranger. Here is a few of the things I would have never got to experience: 1. Getting into unversity to study Mental Health Nursing. 2. Seeing my nephew grow up. 3. Learning to drive. 4. Meeting my ex-girlfriend. We may have broken up now, but that was a really fantastic time in my life. 5. Ayr United winning the league in 2017/18. I was in my early 20s when I posted that. The idea that nothing positive will happen in your life when you're that young is ridiculous. It's never too late for good things to happen. It's going to eventually become my job to promote recovery in other people's lives. I know that recovery from mental illness is possible, because I am evidence of that. If you're struggling, don't give up. You have so much to offer, no matter who you are or how you feel. Jamie xxxxxxxx

  12. Hate is a strong word but I fucking hate these parasites. That statement : Para 1-admiiting the current model isn't appropriate Para 2 - these should have been the starting points, not something for 5 years time when we'll have had save the jags 2 at this rate Para 3 - they were fine with accepting the shares before they consulted anyone. Also they're consulting club employees (wonder who? ) and sponsors, good to see who they actually represent Para 4 - everyone knows they won't respond to anything remotely critical so they might as well have added a PO Box in Guatemala as a contact address.

  13. They wanted back in the junior cup now hes saying its shite, what a slap in the face to the sjfa. Because Darvel have been knocked out suddenly they make comments about the competitions being small and over-rated. If that is the case why enter them? They entered the Junior Cup to try and win it. You can be assured that they wouldn’t be saying it was small or over rated if they got to the final. John Gall yet again illustrating that he’s a classless asshole.

  14. They just don't get it. Every time the PTFC Trust make a statement, The Jags Foundation sees a bump in its membership. Every. Single. Time. They fundamentally seem not to understand why it is that the fans feel the need to protest in the first place. It's really pretty galling to see precisely the people who divided the support, by going behind everyone's backs, thwarting fan ownership, refusing to democratise, failing to engage with the fans for three months after being appointed, voting to re-appoint the Club directors en-masse, then turn around and tell other people that they have responsibility for uniting the fan base. The most unifying thing two things that could happen at our football club right now would be Club Board resignations and a full set of Trustee elections.

  16. Hello! Never dipped into this thread before as Kid A is 19 now and it wasn't around when the world imploded and she was created! Now, six months short of 20 years later, B&C are on the way. Identical twin girls due on December 22nd. Anyone in the twin club? I've been buzzing since that early scan back in May, though Mrs Christophe has had a few wobbles trying to get her head around it. It is quite the thing, planning and budgeting for one only for everything to double! We are only 4 weeks or so away now and i forgot how fast everything goes, the time really does run away from you!

  17. Rutherglen Glencairn 2-2 Neilston, WoSFL First Division, 23/11/22 A dreadful first half of 'action' followed by a really entertaining second half. Little happened before the break, with the only real flashes of skill provided by Neilston's Peter Haggarty on the left wing. Sadly, he faded out the game and got hooked in the second half. Glens went ahead in the second half with a long-range shot that possibly took a deflection. It certainly confused the keeper and looked a strange one to me. Neilston came back into it and got themselves ahead. Their equaliser came from a penalty for which the keeper didn't receive a card for the foul. Neilston's bench (right in front of me) erupted in fury at no red card, or even a yellow. The referee explained to them exactly why. It was an attempt to play the ball, so a red is downgraded to yellow, a yellow downgraded to nothing. In this case, the attacker was going away from goal so it's a yellow downgraded to nothing as it's a penalty. I thought the referee handled the situation really well, but the full Neilston coaching staff, quite inexplicably, seemed not to know the rules of the game that they coach a team to play in, and just kept giving him abuse until he booked one of them (I think Derek Carson). Mad behaviour. Who'd be a ref? Anyway, Neilston were the better side overall, but failed to see it out and Glens got a late equaliser after really poor defending from a cross ball. So, a really enjoyable second half, with four goals, both teams hitting the bar, the penalty controversy, and some decent passages of play.

  18. @DoingThe42 Not a random match as it was Cove v Morton last Saturday. However, with that stadium ticked off it’s 42/42 for my son and 40/42 for me.

  19. The blame for any harm which comes to the club because of this protest is entirely the fault of the PTFC Trust, and Jacqui Low. Their actions have made this inevitable. I can’t make it through tomorrow, but totally stand with those protesting and hope everyone possible does join.

  24. What a steaming pile of shite. So 60% to leave the Union but leaving the EU was 52% - and could have been 50% + 1 vote. As ever the Britnats move the goalposts any time the SNP meets or looks like meeting their criteria. What democratic route is there? We could return 100% of a vote for independence parties and they can still ignore it.

  25. Thursday First night I arrived in Dundee, I met my friend's husband for some pints on Perth Road. Had one in The Phoenix, food and drinks in Tonic then went to Mennies. Some bloke who looked like Postman Pat kept gurning and singing 'Maybe it's because I'm a Londoner' in my ear all night. There was also some Bald Bloke telling everyone to shoosh for some reason. In the side room, there was a group of extremely small but attractive women. Friday Friday was probably the most chilled. I did some cultural stuff during the day (McManus etc.) Had a few in Dynamo then met @Meadow_Jock where we grabbed some food from The Tail End. Back to Dynamo where we met 'The Shetland Pony' who was there to see his daughter's graduation. A small smartly dressed bald man talking in wingdings who switched from being extremely happy to aggressive every ten minutes. He was infuriated when we said he looked sixty. He advised he was a Celtic fan but 'hated all the Irish shit'. I never knew if he found his daughter in Trades or not... Saturday Got to Trades at 11am. I had to neck some water as I was struggling badly. Cheeky vegan sausage roll and then we started in Frews pre-game good crack. I could barely face the pints from the night before. Two pies and a cuppa during the game helped me back on track. After we went to Whites and then The Glens to see some old rockers my mate knew (I was flirting with the barmaid in French for some reason). We went to that awful lodge place in town to see the infamous photo of Saddam Hussain outside their toilets. The place was miserable. Like a living room from the seventies. Felt very dirty afterwards but saw the Saddam photo. Sunday Started at Phoenix around 3ish. Was feeling beyond shite at this point. Drinking and eating slowly. Few froths in there then we went to The Nether Inn to play pool and put some horrible songs on the Jukebox. Then went to Club Bar to absolutely stroll the karaoke and make some friends from Glasgow. Also met a local guy I called The Troll who kept singing AC/DC and kept trying to chat up a lesbian. I had some food from Wee Mexico but they made it extra spicy because I'd fucked them off. Monday Long sober train journey back. I will definitely be back!

  26. Reading the third of their thread it's clear what the PTFC Trust's tactic is here. They are calling on The Jags Foundation to renounce the planned protest at tomorrow's game while being fairly certain that they'll do no such thing. They can then claim that the Jags Foundation are condoning action that will harm the Club. To be fair TJF did similar with their call for the PTFC Trust to vote for the removal of 4 directors at yesterday's AGM. They can't possibly have thought that they would do so. It's pretty much Civil War now. The PTFC Trust would be well advised to try to avoid going further down that route. TJF have the support of a large section of the Thistle support, have moral right behind them and are just a damn sight better at it. The PTFC Trust may, over the passage of time, become the fans' organisation that the current Trustees you imagine/hope aspire to become but those current Trustees won't be the winners of this civil war. I'm not entirely sure how this will end but it's going to be messy and damaging before it does that's for sure.

  27. Motherwell 6-0 Hearts - SFA Youth Cup, K-Park, 25/11/2022. Hearts' youngsters fail miserably to honour the anniversary of Robbie Neilson's famous last-minute winner in Basel in the 2004-05 UEFA Cup group stage by taking an absolute chasing from Motherwell. It was 5-0 after 30 minutes and a genuine bloodbath seemed on the cards. Fortunately, Motherwell seemed to ease off a bit and Hearts stabilised things, with the loss of only one goal in the second half seeming merciful. Not much celebrity spotting at this one, Stevie Frail being the only one I noticed.

  28. It's fairly easy to get an emergency Scottish election. FM resigns - if the post is not filled within 28 days there would be fresh Scottish elections. That would be better than a de facto GE strategy as it would be fully focused on Scotland plus the SNP/Greens would have complete control over the timing of the election.

  29. Wouldn’t this be true of any party? You might have voted for, say, the Liberal Democrats (I know, right?) on the basis of their opposition to tuition fees yet not have supported their policy on, say, fox hunting. You don’t get to pick and choose which bits of their manifesto they then enact (or don’t). At any rate, this is again falling into the trap of playing nice (and playing along) with the UK system, as though this were a business-as-usual GE coming up. If I were the SNP I’d take advantage of every dirty trick possible to disrupt the next election and prevent it from proceeding as they usually do. Westminster has told us that playing nice and following their time honoured approach avails us nothing. f**k them.

  35. Kilwinning Rangers 0-1 Glenafton, WoSFL Premier Division, 25/11/2022 A last-gasp winner for the visitors here in a game that should never have taken so long to produce a goal. Woodwork was hit, chances missed, lots of heavy tackles. All in, a really decent game and a very well-taken goal to finish it, although he should never have been played on by lazy home defending. Two games today, and a decent enough Friday.

  36. The reverse here applies too - we couldn’t know that people voting for, say, Labour - on the basis of some unicorn or other they promise - don’t nevertheless support independence. And you can get Labour will promise the moon. There’s no obvious way around this other than controlling the narrative in Scotland (which the SNP can’t really do). A GE on independence could only work if the prior campaign is heavily - even solely - focused on independence versus the UK nationalism. The question might better be: what does the SNP do if it achieves a strong showing of MPs, whether over 50% or under? Do they continue trooping to Westminster to form an insignificant minority? They’ve done this dutifully for years and got nothing by it. Do they attempt to obstruct the operations of the English Parliament rather than going along with them?

  37. I'll post a wee league of the Wannabe as everyone has posted their score, however the 2 games to play later will have a BIG say in the final placings. @Snobot looking for nil-nils in both games. @Geaky needs a goal @JamesP_81 & @Ronaldo Jeremy head to head.

  39. I don't know the ins and outs of the teaching pay debate, nor do I have any particular interest in getting into it, but looking after the lowest paid staff as a priority should always be the goal of a union in my opinion. I work at a university, and our local branch of the UCU had all but agreed a pay deal for their staff (generally the highest paid at the university) before consulting with the other campus unions (GMB, Unison, Unite) and realising that the (generally lower paid) staff in those unions weren't getting anywhere near what we were. They therefore joined forces and presented a joint position to the university which eventually led to an agreement last month - ultimately the deal I ended up getting was exactly the same as what would have been agreed before (3%), but the other two unions got a far larger uplift. That, to me, is the whole point of trade unionism.
