  1. Full house. 10/10 and not one guess today. First time for everything.

  2. I mean this has clearly been done to death, blown out of proportion and positions entrenched along petty tribal lines but why on earth - in 2021 - should Ayr United be expected to sell and post physical tickets to customers of Partick Thistle in the first place? I'm sure our staff and volunteers have enough to do for Ayr United. Your game, your tickets, your money. Relying on somebody else's good will to sell to fans is embarrassing. You can't turn this on us.

  3. That was rank rotten. From the first few goal kicks, it was obvious the long kicks wouldnt work with the wind. It made for 50/50s on or before the half way line and kept the ball coming down our throat. I'd have changed the approach after 5 or 10, but in 90 we didn't change it once. If the full backs come and offer with Arbroath pressing pretty high, they would inevitably have received the ball under pressure... so if playing it out from the back then wasn't an option, they could have hoofed it clear, which is all Hemming was doing anyway! Arbroath had their tactics spot on. Their keeper judged his GKs perfect with the wind assistance, playing them down the throat of Nouble, whose first touch, ability to take a ball in, link up play, play on the turn, quick feet, strength, were all amazing. The first half hour in particular was the best centre forward performance I've seen in ages. It took far too long for Euan Murray to lamp him consecutively on the left shy line and the byline - both great challenges that won the ball but left some on him and quietened him down a bit. So impressed with the big guy, an absolute monster able to hold off several defenders and beat them with skill and pace. So unlucky not to score. As I said, their tactics from the back were night and day to ours. They judged it so much better with the wind in their favour. There was one piece of play early first half where the keeper pinged a lovely low ball to their left back who went on a run, played it to their attacker, cut inside, and if he had got his shot away earlier would probably have scored. I was very happy to get in at half time 0-0. We had Euan Murray and his outstanding blocks, Zach Hemming and some good saves, and sheer luck that they hit the post, to thank. I have serious doubts about TW's ability to change a game. We were so spoiled with Clarke. What change came about as a result of his half time talk? He said in his post match interview that we hadn't trained to go long and had planned to play football. Sort it at half time then. Tell your keeper not to go long, with kicks that the wind took all the way through to the opposition goalie. What did his substitutions achieve? The game was crying out for a change and nothing that TW did had any sort of positive effect. It was maddening. 80 minutes in, Fraser Murray takes a free kick that had to land at the back post, 7 or 8 yards out... and with the wind he hit it straight out of play. The previous 80 minutes should have been a f**king clue! Take a bit off it! A very off night for everyone really, bar Murray who was a rock and Hemming who won us the point with his late double save. I shouldn't moan as much when the point takes us top, at least for today, but I thought Arbroath started so well and looked a bit more vulnerable second half without the wind assistance - we could have won that game if we had played better. Overall the trip has been fantastic, though. Staying in a top class B&B with the whole family, and really looking forward to explore Arbroath today. Brilliant to tick new grounds off at the age of 34!

  4. Currently having a 1700 gallon goldfish pond made. Always wanted a fish pond so can't wait til it's up and running. Going to fill in a couple of the corners and have baskets of marginal plants around the side. Just need to get the filter sorted this weekend and it's more or less functional.

  5. Decent game as a neutral and can’t help but watch on a little envious as to where Arbroath are at the moment. It wasn’t too long ago we were rivals but they’ve kicked on and fair play to them. Good to see Gayfield packed too and with the squad they have they really shouldn’t be too far away from the play-offs. Kilmarnock looked very average and seemed quite content to settle for a draw, I suppose that’s testament to where Arbroath are at the moment. Will be interesting to see how Dowds goes in the Championship if given an opportunity, he was a stand out for us a few years back but his progress stalled at the clusterfuck that is Falkirk. Would love to see him back at us.

  7. The only thing which mattered was whether what he was saying in that specific post was correct. I don't understand the attitude of "well he said horrible things about X so that means when you quote him saying a reasonable thing, Y, you must endorse his views about X". If we have to start checking the posting history of everyone we quote, we'd never get anywhere. This sort of crap seems to be a modern phenomenon. It's childish pish and those engaging in it need to grow the f**k up.

  8. WhatsApp from her earlier asking if there’s an Oak Furniture Land in Dundee. Yes there is, it’s literally 5 minutes from our house. Ah good I’ll let <insertnameofuselesspalhere> know. We’ve been messaging each other this afternoon and I was going to phone directory enquiries to find out. Two women, messaging each other using iPhones connected to the internet, one was going to phone a fucking irrelevant service because neither of them thought to access the fucking world of information sitting right there in the palm of there hands.

  23. The war department is a fine cook. Particularly with the baking, which I have no knack for. What she can't do is clean up as she goes, or after herself once she's done - or at all - in the kitchen, meaning it's easier for me to make a batch lot of anything that would feed 50 than it is to let her do so much as pasta and sauce. She has more than once arrived home at night and found the kitchen clean and asked if I've actually made the tea, seemingly thinking it impossible that someone could actually cook and clean up at the same time.

  24. @Meldrew & @Namond Brice Thanks for joining, you have now been entered into the league, you will start in the 3rd tier (Last Chance Saloon Shootout) The League - Runs from Mon to Fri, each day a link will be posted by the first person to do the quiz for that day, therefore if you come on to post your score and you are the first for that day out of kindness, stick a link in your post. Also, say which day you are posting, easier for myself. If you missed a day or two you can catch up using the http://quizoftheday.co.uk/archive/ Your final scores for the week, usually have to be in by midday on Saturday, however I'll remind those folk on a Friday, before I head out to the disco to bed. League tables are posted on Wed/Thu and Sat. If you're in the top 3 you will be promoted automatically, coming 4th you're in the playoff, which will be held on that same day. This is always a well constructed question to the highest standard possible. . Weekly Cup - This runs along side the league, you don't need to do anything extra, you will enter this cup if you are in the top 3 of any league. Sometimes there is a playoff question, this question is always about football stadium capacities. Random Cup - These cups pop up now and again, which are put together by one of the league members. At the moment we are just about to start a new cup next week, both will be involved It's all rather easy to follow, just remember to keep posting.... gifs are welcome and the unwritten rule @Jacksgranda is not allowed to win anything. Good Luck ETA - Can you please give me your vaccine covid status? required for the New Year party.
