  1. That’s an off the chart mental take, if you’re suggesting only people who go to nightclubs or the football have been impacted by covid restrictions.

  2. Tbf NS said last week she'd announce they'd be lifted tomorrow. I still don't fully understand what she possibly thought was going to happen in the last 7 days that was going to prevent this happening (and therefore, by extension, have no idea why she decided to chuck an extra week of restrictions in). The data could not be anymore positive - even the best media spin artists would struggle to make it look bad. We are about to witness a couple of months of NS & the SG being forced, kicking and screaming, to acknowledge that Covid in 2022 is utterly shan, whilst trying their hardest to deflect from how utterly pointless their remaining protections are, until they finally cave and remove the lot, masks included. Leitch will pop up from time to time to say something ridiculous, the BST will claim we were only able to remove all the protections because we remained cautious till the bitter end, and Devi will make a late appearance to plug her book a final time.

  5. Just posted this on the match thread. I live in Aberdeen and used to work very close to Spain Park. It’s on the edge of vast industrial estates which will be deserted on a Saturday, so plenty of on street parking in either East or West Tullos Industrial Estates and a short walk. Personally I wouldn’t park in the residential streets of Torry and don’t try Tesco, Lidl or Halfords etc.

  7. Wheres does the, now fairly regular, digs at a defence thats actually performing well get him? We're in a really bad place and hes completely reluctant to change a system which sees us barely threatening to score most weeks, it would be nice for him to actually acknowledge that publicly as it would offer a sliver of hope it might improve and maybe get some fan support back. Just now we've got a massive flashing red klaxon on the top of his head which is the root cause of our problems, yet hes ignoring that to talk about how dirty his shoes are. It makes him look like a clown and the jibe at ref decisions and covid issues (have we even actually been affected that badly this season?) is the sort of shit you expect a Jackie McNamara to come out with.

  9. That's a great post bud. Genuinely, there's no need for that first sentence. About half the country are classed as CV and most of us are either CEV ourselves or have at least one person like that in our immediate families so getting vaccinated and abiding by lockdown at the start were a no brainer for pretty much all of us. Masks are much more contentious because the evidence that they work is sketchy to say the least but almost all of us have done everything we reasonably could to protect our loved ones. Being made to feel that we don't care is fucking grossly offensive and I really can't understand what the people saying this stuff are hoping to achieve. Not one of us wants to see people die of covid. Not one of us. We're at the point of diminishing returns. Restrictions are no longer contributing to public safety as we've seen with countless massive waves in Scotland which pretty much mirror or exceed those in England where almost no restrictions have been in place for quite some time. Right now, we're just battering ourselves on the walls of self-righteousness and guilt for no discernible benefit and doing great harm to wider society in the meantime.

  10. That's not how it works, the projects are developed based on generating a return over the life of the assets. On the scale that we're looking at here, there will be a huge amount of debt used to fund the schemes, simple payback is never used to justify them or they wouldn't fly. There will a required rate of return based one each participants' hurdle rate and in theory as long as the net present value of the project is positive for the asset's life you are making your return servicing your debt and making a profit from it. These rates will be quite low in today's debt market and will be paying our pensions in the future as well as keeping the lights on. There is no reason why a state owned company couldn't be a share holder and boost the public purse. There will be a sell off of shares in a number of these schemes as they progress through development.

  11. I always enjoyed that for all the wrong reasons. In the USA, they love to play their national anthem at all sporting events. Everybody stands to attention, place their hand on their heart and sing with gusto. Meanwhile back in the U.K. the national anthem is mainly being played to people who have fallen asleep while watching the telly.

  12. Absolutely - clean forgot it was Sturgeon’s update tomorrow. Remember as recently as this time last week there were purposely mixed messages and veiled threats being thrown out about fitba crowds, and Clownshoes was completely contradicting himself several times a day. Very amused at the ongoing prospect of a cascade of “telts” and “get it right up yes” to a number of well deserving nitwits.

  14. Despite all our woes this forum has made me laugh over the last few days! Everyone has their opinion and that's what makes football great. The news is there is no news and it's giving us a taste of what it's like to live in North Korea.

  18. Interesting distinction when they are being lifted as they clearly don't want to say they are removing "protection" as that has connotations of somehow putting folk at risk yet it's the opposite when they are being instated. Pretty disingenuous.

  20. There isn't a left wing for the BBC to lean towards anyway. They generally will go where the government of the day is leaning. The two biggest parties are centre right so it tells you they reflect the public by doing so.

  25. Absolutely fantastic to get the win here, What a season we are having Smokies, Living the dream, Imo Raith Rovers are still the best side we have faced this season and would love them to come up with us too if it magically were to happen, Great ground which always holds special memories for me for numerous reasons, Brilliant fans and like us a really well run family club that looks after the community and fans, Would be great to see Lewis Vaughn back and for all his bad luck play in the Premiership and fufill a dream, All the best for the rest of the season Rovers. Whole team was magnificent today but Nicky Low bossed the midfield and was MOTM for me Like signing a new player that he is back that we already knew would be class Magic

  27. @oaksoft I'll tag you as I'm no shitebag You've some nerve to post about anyone on the Covid thread. As one of the 'main players' you've been nothing but an arse with your condescending posts ever since you entered the 'theatre'. Have fucking good HARD look at yourself.

  28. Wemyss Bay - Season Nine Second Division I was six points clear and unbeaten after fifteen games. Just constant draws since then it seems... Anyway four games to go and almost guaranteed a play off place at worse when the club was expecting a relegation play off position. I reckon seven points will be enough to guarantee promotion. Scottish Cup Five-nil flattered AWR but, then again, 3-0 flattered us in the 2nd round. There as a lot of flattery, but not a lot of games, in the Scottish Cup for us this year Challenge Cup A good first leg v Albion Rovers kept us sweet before more shitebaggery against Spartans meant penalties were required. Civil Service were lucky to score none in that first leg but nae hassles in the second. Both matches v East Fife were complete non-events but we held our nerve in the shoot out. Ayr have made the 2nd division after back to back relegations from the Premier League but, aside from a nervy last ten, we were fairly comfortable at Hampden. Inverclyde Cup FUCKING YASS! We've played better against Morton and lost but not today. I had a feeling a while ago our best chance of beating them would be the first round and so it was. They're a Premier League team as well which makes it all the sweeter. Now two games v diddy teams to ensure we don't balls it up... Run in... Ayr got a victory the day before v Stenhousemuir to keep them in the hunt. Clyde drop points and, despite a win, I think we can say Gala are out of the reckoning. But we'll never know if I would have got a ninth promotion in a row because...

  30. Never understood the leasing of dwarfs. I mean, yeah you get a new one every 5 years, get it serviced and only really need to get it new shoes once in a while but you never own it. Much better to pick a dwarf up around the 5 Yr old mark for a few grand and run it into the ground then scrap it.

  33. What intrusion has happened to your day to day life apart from being asked to wear a mask and wash your hands occasionally, which you refuse to do? As I understand it you're not a regular clubber or visitor to football stadiums, or even pubs. I'm struggling to understand how covid has affected your life at all.
