  1. Imagine watching on as your club seek out and pay for affiliation with the Tory party, then spin that out as something to be proud of. Utterly fucking disgusting club.

  3. Well, there was certainly a couple of young guys being ushered around at 5:30ish that certainly looked the part. Couldn’t see faces, but who knows? Might or might not be new players. If there’s an announcement on Thursday/Friday, then yes, probably new players. If not, then probably painters and decorators. Interesting couple of hours at the Crunchie Initiative meeting. Sponsors for the KM Stand were there collecting certs and model letters along with AT for a photoshoot. Crunchie popped in to just say hi to everyone. One of the guys there (James I believe) has sponsored one of the letters in the stand for £500. The amazing this was that he wasn’t a Falkirk supporter. He was a Chelsea supporter. As a teenager, Crunchie was his hero, so he sponsored a letter, then he and his wife drove up from London just for the chance of a meeting with Crunchie, and to pick up his model letter and certificate. They had booked into a hotel and then we’re headed back south early Wednesday morning. The power of football, and a wee demonstration that Crunchie is still fondly remembered by the Chelsea fans who saw him play.

  8. Our wee girl arrived yesterday, just got home now. I sit here in amazement at how my other half sailed through the birth and at how beautiful our baby is. The staff were amazing too, I know folk always say that but they really were tremendous. If someone can let me know when I will stop crying every time I look at her that would be helpful. The best day ever.

  10. Just to say we’re now past the 1700 mark for the opening of the Kevin McAllister Stand tomorrow night. That alone is amazing but hopefully we’ll breach 2000. Don’t care what Dunfermline fans or others say, that’s an amazing turnout. We may have taken a battering on and off the field but we as a fan base we are definitely up there as one of the most loyal.

  13. I 'managed' to bring down my consumption this weekend - but not by much. People in the pub on Friday were told that basically, we are done. I will not be around and will not remain in contact once about another fortnight has passed. One was even told to forget the money he owes me, keep it and to GTF at that point. I've my resignation typed up and ready to hand in on Friday. I'm walking away from a £35k basic salary into absolutely nothing but at least I'll not be utterly miserable and just spunking all that money on gear. I have a new career on about £7k less starting in a few months so I'll just fill my time doing agency work and picking up bits and bobs. Me and the missus have called it quits, it's been coming for a while but I said something along the lines of "If I can't see us being married then why would we waste both our times anymore" to which she replied "yeah, I don't want a relationship where you told me you were suicidal and never even got in touch for two days to say you were alive". Writing this and reading it, it looks like a multi car pile up but I can honestly say I've not felt so relieved and a weight off my shoulders. I'm at the Dr's tomorrow for bloods so will have a wee talk with them at that point but I'm feeling more positive about everything in life (might not be when I'm hating agency work ) if I reduce my intake by the same amount every week I'll be clean in a month. Hopefully kick the booze for a bit too. Onwards and upwards.

  15. a couple of weeks ago I was collecting a few pallets out of a place in an industrial estate and I heard a bit of commotion outside the truck. I looked down and the magpies had a little green parakeet pinned down. I chased them off and gathered him up. They had pulled his tail feathers off and he was terrified.he wouldn't have lasted much longer. He had escaped from a bird shop in the estate but the owner only returned my call when I was 30 miles away. He sounded like a dick so I sent him a message later saying I was fond of the bird and wanted to keep it so he said go ahead. Now we are best pals. His tail feathers are growing back already.

  16. I voted Yes in 2014 not because I'm a nationalist or a patriot by any means but because I thought - in the long run - it'd be better than what we had. Next time the issue will be the opposite - I'll be voting Yes again, not because I think it'd be better than the status quo but because it can't surely not be any worse. I can understand why some people who are politically similar to me voted No. I can understand that some people felt it was a big risk and despite being open to it just couldn't quite be won over. The ambiquity of our EU membership didn't help and the currency stuff were a mess. The currency union proposal wasn't that bad an idea but explanation of it was awful. Another reason I can understand are the people who said words to the essence of "We understand the changes and aspirations of Yes but we want to see them on a British scale." I got that. It wasn't enough to shift me to No, but I got the thinking behind it. That seems so unobtainable now. Labour offered real change on a British scale under Corbyn and it got smashed - there's just no appetite for that type of change in England which seems to only be interested in becoming more right wing, more insular and a lot more nasty. Even look at the Cameron government in September 2014 - it's probably not far from where Starmer is now. That's the only alternative now. In 2014, some said that a Yes vote was a jump in the dark and looking back it was to some degree. Today a No vote is also a jump in the dark...into a ravine! The UK isn't just a sad, lonely and bitter place it's somewhere that revels in that sad, lonely, bitterness and wants to get sadder, lonelier and even more bitter. It'll be a Yes from me.

  18. I support a team in the LL. I take the view that I will buy a season ticket, and I will attend away games at clubs that I know voted against this, but that I shall be boycotting away games at the other clubs, and write to the host club's chairperson in advance to explain why I am doing so - that they do not deserve the gate money, half-time draw money, or indeed the pie and bovril money, of the fans which they so clearly hold in contempt. It probably won't have an effect, but it at least gives me a voice and means that I will continue to support my club without supporting the shites responsible for this mess.

  19. No idea how the season will go footballing wise, but for Raith Rovers to have a positive vibe and feeling around the club given what went on not even 6 months ago, is frankly remarkable. Fair play. I really do feel a fresh start management wise was best for all concerned, just feels like there's a sense of renewed enthusiasm for the season ahead.

  21. Off topic a little but just wanted to say a huge thanks to Stevie McDonald and the club for coming along to present trophy’s for my teams football presentation last night. Stevie brought new boy Dylan Easton along to award the trophy’s and all of the kids were buzzing - they even kindly donated a signed shirt for our fundraising needs. These are the wee things that the kids will remember and helps us to rebuild that community feel - especially after what went on earlier in the year. The young generation are potentially the future of our club moving forward and a great way to get youngsters on side. Half the team are season ticket holders and were absolutely elated last night. After all the kickings we’ve taken for a bit after the saga - just wanted to say thank you and appreciate them giving up their Friday night to pop along.

  26. Pleased to say I bumped into Milky Gem this morning before getting the train to work! She left quite suddenly, and there were a few rumours as to what happened, but essentially her role was given to somebody else, and the only way she was going to be kept on was if she took a pay cut and worked under this new person. She declined the offer and got into bit of a legal battle over it all, and fortunately got herself a good pay off. The company were absolute shits when Covid hit, making most of us take 10 days unpaid leave (taken over 3 months opposed to the year) to stave off redundancies, before doing so anyway. They weren't business decisions, they just used it as a chance to get rid of some people who were out of favour. Some really decent people were shunted, purely as they weren't liked. As Covid continued to worsen, we then had to take another 10 days unpaid leave. I left a few months after, without taking a day of statuary leave. They told me I could go early, but I sat it out just to get that money. It wasn't a massive amount, but it felt good doing it. Back to Milky, she now works for a mental health charity, and still does her soup kitchen service in Brighton every other evening. Thanks, Many Thanks, Kind Regards

  28. It seems odd that petrol stations and supermarkets can put their prices up to compensate for increased costs, with begrudging acceptance, but when workers try to up the price of their labour they're seen as greedy wreckers.

  29. The absolute state of being naive enough to think that wasn't staged, and he wasn't 100% meant to be recognised. It's as blatant as when The Duchess of Cambridge came incognito to the Sarah Everard virgil. Never mind that she had taxpayer funded protection since her early 20s. Never mind that the government explicitly said don't go to the virgil. Never mind that she deliberately didn't wear a mask (unlike most people there). And never mind that is came at the same time as Nasty prince Andrew headlines. PR is easy when people are this gullible. If prince William did really care about homeless people (maybe he thinks he does, he seems a bit dense in general) he could drastically cut the cost of the monarchy, get a normal job (like many other monarchs around Europe) and donate one of the families 9 palaces to house homeless people. Oh and stop building a new royal yacht.

  34. “OK with Connolly going”. What the actual f**k do folk watch every week?! Scored or assisted 13 goals last season from wide, after being inexplicably left out the side for a large portion of the season, and won POTY. One of the worst shouts I’ve seen on here for a long time, and that’s really saying something.

  36. It's about time we go a chance to vote, it's what the Scottish electorate clearly want having mandated our government on more than one occasion. As a left leaning, socially inclusive country, Scotland has no place in this world shackled to the right wing establishment of the UK.

  37. Is it only greed when the people asking for a payrise are in the 30-50k p/a bracket? Inflation is at 9.1% and many professions such as doctors and teachers haven’t had a pay rise that has kept up with CPI in years. We have the highest percentage of people in full time employment using the benefit system than ever before, does that sound like the kind of thing that should be happening in a country with the 5th highest GDP in the world? Did you make similar posts when the CEOs of NatWest, Lloyds, HSBC and Barclays were taking 7 figure bonus’ at the same time as plunging the country in to a recession? We are currently in the situation where Boris Johnson is going to try and remove the cap on bankers bonus’ set by the EU, where a bonus could be no more than 100% of their fixed annual pay. Even if every single doctor and nurse in the UK got a 20% pay rise, it still wouldn’t come close to the amount of tax that companies like Amazon evade paying in the UK. Or the numerous amount of tax loopholes opened by Gordon Brown which are still being exploited today. Or the billions of pounds funnelled through the City of London to hide Russian oligarchs wealth? Is that not more worthy of your attention? The Russians call it ‘Londongrad’ or the ‘London Laundromat’ f**k sake, the UK happily allow them to wash their money here, and we’ve got people begrudging a nurse a 10% rise on a £30,000 wage . Goebbels would be proud of the job this Government have done to make the public look the other way.

  38. 0/10 effort from Dindeleux. The fella was an outstanding talent who didn't get the full recognition his talents deserve. Should have played for Scotland in my opinion and was a player I enjoyed watching even as an opponent. People will remember him and his ability for years to come. Gary Holt, nah not so much.

Sadly too common where relationships break down and some parties can be vindictive or otherwise indifferent, even if not on purpose as such (although definitely on purpose in some cases).
